“Premium Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The hotel is situated in a mysterious location. Not as central as, let's say Fresco hotel, however, its remoteness will award you with an unique experience: luxurious rooms dug in caves with everything that a modern traveler, appreciative of history and ethnic touch, needs. The stuff will do everything to make your stay enjoyable and easy.

We were upgraded to a suite with a living area, good-sized bedroom and large bath. It was fun to sleep in a cave. It was a bit difficult to work the shower ansd the toilet was raised up on a slightly loose step. There were steps to climb up and down to get to reception and for the restaurant, but no additional ones for the room. The breakfast was ok and the public area was small. Service was very good here. We were helped with our luggage. Oo the last day when we had to check out someone got our bags and we were taken in the hotel van up the hill to our waiting van for our day of sightseeing. Both the young men at the reception desk were quite helpful. This hotel was located in a remote area, there was really no place to walk, though the setting was very nice.

It took "Mr. Ibrahim" anywhere between 7-10 million hits with hammer to carve each room of this most unusal luxury hotel. With only three prinitive tools he has today 30 deluxe rooms and suits for the most demanding travelers. "Mr. Ibrahim" frequently sits with his guests and tels them his life story which is fascinating. We have bbeen on 6 continents, visited more than 100 countries but the Cave Hotel Gamirasu in Cappadocia, Turkey is definitely the best there is in Cappadocia area and the most unique we ever stayed at. Family ran with utmost attention to every detail, we enjoyed every minute of our stay here. Nobody leaves this place without tripple "WOW!

Room Tip: Ask for honeymoon or any other suite when making reservation.

Staying in a cave hotel was a out of the world unique experience for me my wife and kid.
The welcome received on arrival, the service offered was very nice.
The staff incredibly polite and helpful, breakfast is a real banquet and the location is perfect! If you come to wonderful Cappadocia, make sure to stay here!
The hotel is beautifully situated. The patio where you can eat, or simply sit and enjoy the view overlooks a valley with other old cave dwellings
Breakfast was a buffet
a wide variety of delicious breads, fruits, cheeses, jams,
Our room was clean and comfortable. A delightful place to stay.
The people at front desk were so polite and caring we had no problems staying and recommending this to tourist to stay for sure
We stayed for 2 nights wish if we would have stayed one more night before moving to our next destination

Room Tip: Rooms at the lower floors preferred when you are traveling with kids, we got one.
