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

I don't need much comfort in such places like cappadocia, but i do need some good service like activities and advise. As opposed to what's been promised in their website, service was awful. We couldn't get informed about hotel's activities and advices about what to see. Additionally, we weren't welcome at all. I do not reccomend this hotel. As there... More

We think you mixed up our guesthouse with some other place...we know our guests and their names. We think you did not stay with us, because we give info and maps for free on arrival here. We give tea on arrival for free. We do no push our guest to go on excursions, but if guests want we're there to... More

Kemal's Guest House is a hands-on, personal, quality experience -- it's shocking we paid so little for such a quality experience. Upon arrival, Kemal immediately gathers info on what you want to do with your stay and assists with phone calls (in Turkish) and recommendations. Barbara knows everything about the hiking (major part of your stay here should be hiking).... More
