Wonderful experience. Beautiful view, very quiet, allows you to get the most from landscape, city is walking distance. Staff were always available and helpful, specially for the kids. I have asked to arrange all tours, walking visits, balloon - all was done in perfection. I was at home. Definitely to come back!

Cave hotel near Urgup. I spent three nights there. Carved out of the cliff, my room was large, airy, quiet, clean. Nice bathroom. Cave had windows out to a veranda area where we could sit. Nice views. Good breakfast with views of valley below. Could see hot air balloons across the vista

I stayed here for three non-consecutive nights, coming back visiting another region after a positive experience on the first night. The hotel is small, with about a half-dozen suites. Each suite/room is separately carved out of the cliff face, and is perfectly isolated from the others. The rooms are comfortably appointed, but are not luxurious. My suite had a bedroom... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. It was a different experience. The cave room was comfortable and peaceful. The rooms are cool though there is no AC fitted. There was no TV and hence a little boring since I travelled alone. There was a bed provided outside the room that was quite convenient for sitting in the evening.... More

We stayed in Elkep Evi for 3 days. The hotel gave us a completely new and superb experience. The cave rooms are beautiful, huge, peaceful and very comfortable. One feel like actually living in a natural cave. There is no AC in the room, but interestingly no air conditioning is required since the rooms are naturally cool and one requires... More

We stayed at Elkep Evi for 3 nights and absolutely loved the experience. It was almost like having a villa of our own with a private sitting space outside every cave room and total privacy. Even though it was quite hot outside, the cave needed no air conditioning, it was cool and fresh. Staff was so friendly and helpful! This... More

Highly recommended - Central location, everything you need. I was very happy with the care the manager took to make sure we maximized our time in Cappadocia. Best and cleanest room in Turkey for us, walk to town (check out Ziggy's restaurant).

We stayed three nights at this hotel and really enjoyed it. Not only was the hotel itself absolutely beautiful but the staff and owners were incredibly helpful. I must particularly mention that we were booked on a late night flight and the owners were kind enough to let us keep the room till 3 pm although check out was 12.

Cave hotels are a unique part of the Cappadocia experience and Elkep Evi provided us with a near-perfect example with a charming, cool and comfortable room with views over the valley. The service was personal and responded very well when our transfer did not turn up at the airport. They also helped with advice and requests for travel including driver/... More

One of many cave hotels in this area, the Elkep Evi is like a miniature hill village. The rooms are not natural caves, but purpose cut into the rock with many charming details. Despite being deep in a hill, our room was high ceilinged and surprisingly airy and light. The bed was very comfortable. Staying here can be a workout... More
