I'll add to the stream of great reviews of the Kismet Cave Hotel. The hotel is beautiful - very nicely-furnished and with beautiful views and great atmosphere. Location is very central. Breakfast was excellent. But above all else, meeting Faruk was a huge highlight of our trip. He organized our tours, volunteered his son to guide us hiking and and... More

We stayed at the Kismet Cave House in late June. The location is great with the town centre only a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and are beautiful and are tastefully decorated. The BEST part of the stay though was meeting the owner, Faruk. The hospitality shown by Faruk was the best I... More

I traveled in a group of 7 people, young couples and a small family, and stumbled upon this place by pure chance. We are Cirque Du Soleil performers that have a show in Antalya and decided to drive to gorême for a wkend. What a pleasant surprise to find this little gem of a hotel. Our rooms were beautifully decorated... More

Faruk is like no other! My husband and I were traveling for two weeks throughout Turkey and flew from Istanbul to Cappadocia on our second day in this fantastic country. We did not get into Cappadocia until very late in the evening and upon our arrival to Kismit Cave Hotel Faruk was waiting with food and an opportunity to relax... More

We (family of four) have just returned home after spending 4 fantastic days at the Kismet Cave House. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable and the atmosphere is unique. Faruk is a fantastic host and his treatment of his guests is outstanding. Not only was he at the front door to receive us on our arrival, he was always... More

For me travel is more about the people I meet than the places I stay at. And you can see from all the other reviews that Faruk is the USP of Kismet Cave House. We found him recommended on www.turkeytravelplanner.com which is a really excellent travel resource on Turkey. Right from the beginning I found him to be friendly and... More

Based on the previous reviews on TripAdvisor, we chose this hotel and booked through Hotels.com. This was our experience: 1. As soon as we got the booking confirmation, we got an email from Faruk asking us to cancel this booking and book through his own website for 99euros....we should have guessed that this was the beginning of the bad times....

SimitaRishi, I’m very sorry you had a poor visit and I assure you it was never my intent to fool you. I normally do not reply to reviews as I prefer they remain impartial, but following your unsatisfactory experience I feel obliged to personally address this review and provide some clarification. In regards to the booking miscommunication, we, at Kismet... More

My family and I (six of us) just happened upon Kismet Cave Hotel. I mentioned to a work colleague that we were headed to Capadocia; her response: you must contact Faruk at KCH and go for a hot air balloon ride. Faruk took care of us from arranging transportation from Kayseri airport (at 1:10a!); setting us up with a guide... More

Faruk and his wonderful and homey hotel define this what kismet is. My second stay with him in two years- both experiences beyond wonderful. Great rooms, breakfast and location. Do not miss hanging out with Faruk in the office and drinking some late night apple tea. He defines the warm hospitality and genuine character of this area and its people.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our 8 beautiful rooms are pleasantly and elegantly decorated in warm, soft colours with antique furnishings and private en-suite bathrooms, natural air conditioning and cozy down duvets. Each room offers its own special romantic atmosphere and an escape from the ordinary. Two of the double rooms are also lavished with jacuzzis, one of them is extra special - which we call the honeymoon suite, this also has a fireplace to create that special atmosphere. The quad room is actually a spacious family room complete with fireplace and jacuzzi. ... more   less
