This hilltop location at the SW side of Goreme gives amazing views of the town and landscape, especially from the dining terrace. The architecture is very clever, with rooms partly hollowed out of the rock and partly built in matching stone. The staff were exceptional, particularly Filiz who gave us a very thorough briefing on arrival and was always friendly... More

We loved loved loved this hotel! We went in snowy January for our honeymoon - everything was quite and cold and snowy. We were upgraded for no cost and given a bottle of Cappadocian wine. The staff were more than accommodating, friendly and super helpful. The hotel was cosy and warm and felt just right for the snowy weather. Our... More

This is a very special place. The rooms, in cave-like environments, are beautifully appointed, comfortable and with great views of the Rose Valley and the town of Goreme. The breakfast, included, is exceptional. Fresh squeezed juices, delightful pancakes with different stuffings, eggs cooked to order as well as the Middle Eastern array of fresh vegetable, fruits and cheeses. There are... More

Everything good you've heard about this place is true. My gf and I stayed at Room #3, an arch room, for 3 nights in late May 2015 and it was incredible. The hotel is conveniently located next to the best restaurant in town, Topdeck, and the best hamam (massage) is also in the hotel. Finally, the staff was always happy... More

This hotel just could not be better! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We took 3 rooms and they were great. We eat there a few times and the food and service was great. It is close to everything and they can book tours, balloon rides and any transportation you might need. I cannot imagine any hotel in the... More

Staying in unusual hotels like this is for travelers looking for really special memories. We booked the Heritage Cave / Fairy Chimney suite (rm 116) and thoroughly enjoyed it - keeping in mind it was part of a 'staying in a cave hotel experience.' You're still spending the night in a cave, but it's the nicest cave you could imagine... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Kelebek and it was a perfect vacation. Cappadoccia is an unusual place, fascinating and peaceful. The hotel had everything we needed, lovely gardens, vistas, and a variety of settings to enjoy the fairy-tale landscape. We ate at the hotel every night and the food was delicious, as well as the incredible breakfast buffets. It... More

This was the perfect place to stay in Cappadocia. We stayed in Eagles Nest. Which was a marvelous room with a spectacular view. The breakfast is amazing. Too many choices for early in the morning. The hotel is well located for visiting the the Goreme Open Air Museum and going ballooning.

This is a brilliant property run by fantastic people who really understand hospitality and make each of their guests feel special. Unal at the front desk was fantastic. He made excellent suggestions and helped us plan all our activities so that we enjoyed the best of Capadoccia in the three days that we had there. We stayed in Room 21,... More

We enjoyed a perfect stay here in cappadocia (and I do not use the word perfect lightly). The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are lovely, the views stunning, but what makes this a truly special place is the staff. Nothing was too much bother for them - they assisted us in booking a hot air balloon ride at very short... More
