Great decorations, very accommodating. Nestled into the fairy tale world of Cappadocia, this hotel is really cosy and easy to get to. Room was clean and spacious, and breakfast was delicious! Had one of the best showers here too.

Oktay, I love you for your hospitality. Thank you so much for making our stay so beautiful. Hotel Location: Stayed 7-10 Nov 2014. City Center, very near to all the restaurants, shops, many attractions even such as (Goreme Open Air Museum, Red Valley, Love Valley). Considering Cappadocia to be very quiet don’t look for a place quieter than Goreme. In... More

Correspondence with hotel prior helped us with ground transportation from the airport. Loved our room. Variety of subtle amenities. Trip to Cappadocia included expanding my experience as a professional fine artist, as well as just taking it all in, and this was a wonderful place to relax in the midst of a trip with a packed schedule for exploring area...

It was a real pleasure for us to be there. Good and tasty breakfast, clean rooms with nice bathroom, close to the bus station and centre of the village Fine place to stay for a couple of days. I hope we will come back in future :)

Although the rooms were small-a bit like staying in a Hobbit House, the location and views form this hotel were outstanding. Watching the balloons fly over the city in the morning from the roof of the hotel was absolutely amazing. I loved sitting out by their rooftop pool. However, the pool was quite cold even though it was really hot... More

Perfect location, helpful owner, friendly staff, great breakfast, cool and spacious dorms with comfy beds and doonas. Loved staying here, only thing that could have been improved would have been the wifi connection!

On choosing a hotel in Cappadocia my main priority was a traditional cave hotel in a good location that was also good value for money and Shoestring ticked every box! Despite being just a few minutes walk to the centre of Goreme the hotel provided a complimentary pick up service from the bus station and also dropped us back, having... More

I love the experience of sleeping inside a cave that was converted into a modest, comfortable and creative suite. The overall look of the suite is extraordinary. I especially like the bed with a headboard carved out of rock. Another thing that I liked was that the location of the hotel is very accessible to the bus stops, restaurants and... More
