We returned to the Kelebek in May because of the excellent experience we had in 2014. Once again we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the staff was so helpful in providing suggestions and direction to various sites in Goreme and the surrounding area. Take advantage of the organic breakfast. We did this again during this visit and... More

our room had all the amenities you will expect from a top hotel and it was hard to imagine that you are actually living in a cave! Loved the common living area and the great breakfast they serve. Staff was very friendly and they made sure to remind you of your tour's pickup time.

I am only giving this a 4 because our room was super noisy - we were right by the restaurant and people walked past our windows early in the morning to get to the restaurant. Also, there were a group of Chinese tourists staying off the same corridor we were off of that came in late and were noisy too.... More

The best restaurant staff...... we ate here every night. Beautiful breakfast, amazing rooms, incredible views all day & all night..... get up at 6am to get a beautiful picture of the hot air balloons floating above the town of Goreme. The owner, Ali, shares his life & family farm with you via a tractor ride to their organic farm where... More

This is a fabulous hotel with amazing views and great facilities, but it's the staff and added touches that make this excellent. Very attentive restaurant staff, reception will book at tours, provide advice and book restaurants. The organic farm breakfast is an outing in its own right and definitely worth doing. We had 5 nights there which was great. We... More

We stayed at the chimney room and the junior suite and both rooms were insanely comfy and totally cute and especially the junior suite was really luxurious; but the good 'lucuious' as in absolutely comfy with the cave feeling but the bathroom and beds are pretty modern. Even though it is a cave it is really clean and has air... More

This is really a gorgeous place with unique rooms from true cave rooms to fairy chimney rooms, to lovely rock cut rooms, furnished beautifully, with modern lovely bathrooms. The hotel is sprawling, with lovely terraces and nooks and crannies, even a swimming pool, and a hamam (spa). The restaurant and bar are also lovely. The breakfasts in the hotel are... More

We stayed at Kelebek for four nights at the end of a three-week to Turkey. My wife and I travel quite a bit, and Kelebek was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had anywhere in the world. The uniqueness and elegance of our cave room (Room 103, the former stable) was just the beginning. The organic breakfast... More

Gulay, Unal, Ali, Gina and Felice could not have been more welcoming and helpful in making our stay a highlight of Turkey. They were patient, flexible, helpful and generous with their time and suggestions for tours, sights and restaurants. The room was clean and more than adequate for our visit.
