Kemal and Barbara run a great place. Location is excellent - just 2 minutes from the center of Goreme. Between them they speak probably 7 languages and make an effort with several more - I heard Kemal speaking some Italian which was appreciated by the guests. The dinner is highly recommended as is the fab breakfast. Where else do you... More

Lovely place in a great location, I'd definitely stay there again! The staff were all helpful and the price very reasonable, the WiFi wasn't too good but everything else was just fine. They also helped is organise trips and activities.

The place is pleasant. Nice people (Barbara and Kemal), helpful and ready to plan your activities if you want to. Good food (typical Turkish breakfast) and great dinner (but that is an extra). The cave room is obviously quite cold and damp, but it can be a nice feeling after a hot day spent trekking and visiting.

The location is excellent, not in the busy center but at the border about 2 minutes walking to the center. The staff is super, the room fine and brand New! Bathroom large and the breakfast in the morning in the garden is splendid!

Great food, included breakfast is fresh, beautiful and plentiful. Clean rooms and the friendliest of service! Barbara, Kemal and Emin will make sure you have a wonderful stay in the area. They will suggest activities and will even take you out on hikes themselves.

'Kamaal hai'- simply the best! The hospitality, the food, the location, the accomodation......nothing could be better. Now the details- Barbara and Kemal make a deadly combination- almost killing you with their warm hospitality and bubbly enthusiasm!

only basic comfort available in the rooms. The service (a.o. cleaning room & empty dustbin) is only done on request. In the morning and evening it was chilly (0 - 1°C) but there was no heating in the room. Finally an electric fire was brought in the room.
