I came here with my husband a few weeks ago and it was a first time to Goreme. The hotel is small, unique cave rooms and a great view from their balcony area. The rooms were spacious and always warm. The sheets were changed every two days but not hotel sheets as I would have expected. Pillows are ok. Bathroom... More

My husband and I stayed in the panoramic cave room (room #11) for 2 nights, and found Arif to be absolutely perfect. The bed was comfortable, decorations were beautiful, and the view from our room (and really everywhere at the hotel) was stunning. The hotel is at the top of a hillside, with some of the best views in Göreme.... More

The cave hotel is located at a very good location from where we could see the Hot air balloons launch and fly in the sky as well as stone throw distance from all major attractions in Cappadocia. The Hotel was very clean, beautifully decorated and cosy. The host was very helpful in guiding us in every way with respect to... More

Hospitality and service from Ahmet is excellent from the moment we arrived till we left the hotel. Location of the hotel is another good point. Room and bathroom are clean. Unfortunately we had only 2 days to spent here. Definitely we'll stay again at this hotel

The hotel was great, the rooms were very cool and comfortable (remember its in a cave) and the people is very friendly, Ahmed (our host) help us with the tours. The outcome was great, we did the balloon ride and then they were expecting us with breakfast.

What a fabulous place to stay! This hotel is at the top of the hill so you have great views all day long and at night time too. The owner Arif and his son Ahmet are gracious and friendly hosts. They are extremely helpful,and went out of their way on several occasions to patiently accommodate our unavoidable last minute travel... More

I was looking for somewhere to stay in a good location and a cave room. Arif Cave hotel has probably the best position in Goreme to view the caves/chimneys and watch the hot air balloon rides early in the morning. The cave room we stayed in was good size, very clean and tidy, a modern bathroom and we had our... More

The whole idea/look/feel of these "cave" hotels are fantastic but for the price we paid for the "Executive Cave Suite" we were a bit disappointed. The bathroom was unfinished and the jacuzzi tub was too small for two people. The wifi (not a hug deal) didn't expand to all areas of the room,. you had to stay by the entrance... More
