It was our pleasure to stay at Ishtar. We had a small, clean and cosy room with windows (with shower and toilet) on the first floor. Not exellent, but a good value for money. The internet is available only on a reception on a second floor, but every time we get there we were offered tea. Akiko is very nice... More

If not because of friendly, honest, helpful and awesome Akiko-san, I would rate my experience with this hostel as poor. We stayed here for 3 nights, which are 2 nights in normal room and the other 1 night in the cave room. The normal room was very small and we had heater problem for 2 days. The double cave room...

This pension is beautiful. Staying in cave, magnificent experience! Receptionist Japanese woman is sweety and smiling :) The rooms are cleany, good. But wc and showers are so small and uncomfortable:( but also this pension is central. Then,from pension, going to Goreme centrium, goreme bazaar and Goreme open air museum and bus stations is so easy. Esra Tuzu

We were looking to spend the night in a cave hotel that wasn't very expensive and Isthar Cave Pansion was really everything we were searching for. It's a bit far from the town center of Goreme but it's got all the commodities you need, heater, comfortable beds, hot water and a delicious breakfast. The place is attended by a very... More

It is 2mins from goreme bus station, 20 from the panoramic view above pigeon valley which is amazing for sunrise and air balloons and Umit who helps run the place is a great host and good guy all round! The breakfast is nice, filling and healthy, and included in the price! Would happily spend a week here. The rooms are... More

i chose 3 person bedroom without bathroom and i have to use bathroom and toilet at the outside. it is really cold during December. but it still worth it of amount u pay. if u just come as bagpacker traveller and looking cheap place to stay, this is one is the best. 😊

I was hosted in this hotel with my girlfriend in November 2014. It is very well located, just some minutes away from the Goreme Open Air Museum and from the sunset point in Goreme. The room was quite big and wide, I went with my girlfriend and we were sleeping in a bedroom with three beds. There are many restaurants... More

The bathroom is outside the building, horrible in the winter. The cave seems to be a good idea and one gets the impression it's lightproof and soundproof but it's not. It was quite warm in the winter, so I assume this place must be unbearably hot in the summer. But worst of all was finding small roaches in my bed,... More

I stayed for 1 day and they were very nice, they helped me with my suttle and with my tour. Even though they don't speak English very well they always tried. I had a good experience and for the price I think is a good option if you don't want to spend money and have a bed and a delicious... More
