We had a great experience at Kemal's. Location is perfect, room very confortable Kemal is an amazing cook and his nefew, Emin, will do anything to help you! Plus : the garden/terrace makes you feel just like at home. Only negative point : upleasant sewage odours from the bathroom in the morning but not a big deal. Conclusion : don't... More

Kemal and Emin are very helpful and they were very kind to us. Plus their place is really one of the most authentic places to stay in the region. The "Rock" that is inside the reception is beyond almost anywhere for the night out as well

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!

The small atmosphere makes it very comfortable and feel almost like home. Kemal, Barbara, and all the staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and great to talk to. I highly recommend eating dinner there as... More

'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!
