there are few places where I would return even after a few months. Urgup village in Cappadocia (Turkey) is one of them. Cappadocia is an open air museum, so it is nice to have a cosy hotel up on the hill from where you can relax and appreciate wonderful landscape views. The house of Elkep (Elkep Evi) has mantained part... More

One of the first cave-hotels in Cappadocia. Great rooms, great value, great service... everything was great! Rooms are super huge; even though we asked for two beds, the room had 3 beds plus super roomy.

If you're planning on visiting the fantastic fairytale landscape of Cappadocia, then this wonderful boutique cave hotel would make the perfect base. From the first enquiry about a reservation to our reluctant departure following a most enjoyable three night stay, proprietor Haydar and his staff were the epitome of helpfulness and hospitality. Transfers from the airport, excursions, a balloon flight... More

Stayed there for one night for my weekend trip at Cappadocia in September. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. I booked the room for myself (room 107) and it is on the top floor, a comfy double bed, and it has a separate terrace that overlooks the town! Thanks for giving me one of the best rooms in the hotel!... More

While booking some websites says "double room" but in actual all the rooms are like suites. The rooms are huge with a front patio for amazing relaxing time. We had a amazing time with this hotel and the staff and service is equally good. First the rooms gives you authentic cave experience (for which one goes to cappadocia) then even... More

I didn't have a very favorable impression of Turkey until I came here. People were professional but not friendly. Service was perfunctory. Here the staff really seems to care that you are happy. They are attentive and actually smile at you. Hyder was particularly kind but with all the others being above anone else in Turkey it's hard to single... More

What a gem of a place. Our family of five was very comfortable staying here. Our rooms were spacious and clean with lovely outside covered and cool sitting areas overlooking a valley of the unique rock formations. We so enjoyed starting our day on the rooftop terrace with a gourmet breakfast and looked forward to sleeping in our cave room... More
