A lovely blend of Dutch and Turkish culture, Barbara and Kemal's guesthouse is perfectly located in the centre of town with a brilliant rooftop view of the early morning balloon launches. This place met our 3 cs to a t - clean, close and cost effective - and a offered a comfortable and quiet night's sleep. Clean rooms, nice terraces,... More

We had a very good time at the guest house. The location is great, right in the city centre of Goreme, close to everything. Very suitable for a family on a budget. Lovely breakfast, french toast, eggs, fresh fruit and coffe and a bread basket. Nice upper area terrace to enjoy a glass of wine in the late afternoons. Staff... More

Although we failed to confirm the reservation the staff was ready for us, even at 7 o'clock in the morning, after a night bus. The staff is friendly and very helpful in giving directions and location tips either for organised tours or for us hikers. Room was clean, and there was nothing that I missed while at the guesthouse.

When we arrived spontaneausly the pension was full, but they helped us finding another good place to stay for one night (hotel atak, also a nice pension around the corner). The next two nights we could stay at kemal's. Good beds! But it got very warm in the room. Maybe a van could help then. Barbara arranged an individual hike... More

My daughter, who is working in Turkey, planned our trip and we were very happy with her choice in Goreme, Cappadocia. We arrived by bus from Ankara and the guest house is very close to the stop. Kemal and Barbara are great hosts. My daughter had asked for a cave room . It was definitely cooler (August is sooo hot... More

We stayed 3 nights at this very sweet cave house. Barbara and Kemal welcomed us like friends. Barbara made all of the arrangements for our stay for airport transports, a balloon ride, a hike with a personal guide and another day trip to see the underground city. They cooked a most wonderful dinner for us that we ate in their... More

I was planning on travelling to Cappadocia and got told that if I wanted to see the places tourists don´t usually get to see I should contact Barbara at Kemals Guesthouse, so I did. Ended up staying there for about a week and a half and had an amazing time. Barbara really knows all the "secret" little spots in and... More

My review starts from the time of booking- I must have emailed Barbara dozens of times with room questions/changes and then tour questions etc. She was very polites & helpful. I arranged transfers to & from the airport as well as 4 tours which were all seamless. There wasn't enough people staying at the time, so I didn't get to... More

I was walking through the Kizilcukur Valley when I came across three of Kemal's guests and Barbara at a fork in the path - a teahouse had intentionally tampered with the waymarks so that people would not walk towards the Red and Rose Valleys but rather towards his teahouse. I am so thankful I happened upon this group as they... More

Dear Quirky22blonde, it was very nice tha you joined us, we enjoyed your company as well. Hopefully word will get around about the tampering with waymarks. Anyway, glad we were at the same crossroads at the same moment! Barbara More
