Love the Kismet, love Farouk, I would go back in a heartbeat. A delightfully engaging, warm and intelligent man, Farouk will go out of his way to help you with any travel needs, and adds his personal touch. The rooms are clean, beautiful---a fresco on the wall, and a JACUZZI! Great rooftop breakfast, sunrise view of balloons aloft, close to... More

We stayed there for 3 nights and can only recommend it. I can vouch for the breakfast and rooms just as other reviewers did. I shall add that renting a car through the owner costs about 30 TL less than renting it with any other company in town (90-100 TL vs 120-140 TL). The location is very convenient and I... More

Based on Trip advisor reviews we choose Kismet Cave & off course owner "Faruk". I just requested him to book one room for my family through email. Also Faruk was very prompt in assisting in all my travel related queries. Even after a shot notice he arranged airport pick up for us.We arrived @ 9.30 AM & offered us breakfast.... More

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

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....

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
