“Most charming hotel with wonderful service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

We stayed here 3 nights. Convenient walking to restaurants and shops. Room was beautiful and very comfortable. Breakfasts were lovely with pleasant staff. It was like being in a beautiful handicraft museum!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

I must say this cave hotel was definitely original and was more like a museum! Our first thought was wow!! Until we had to carry our heavy luggage up very many stairs, and may I say deep dark stairs!! Our room was at the very top with a great or shall I say fabulous view but I got lost almost every time I had to go back to the room! The room itself was not too impressive however the breakfast was amazing and it was probably one of the most unique hotels we ever stayed at and I didn't love it or dislike it!! It was just a weird place to stay! When we got up at 4:00 am to take the Hot Air Balloon ride, it was pitch dark and I felt like I was walking in a haunted mansion! Anyways it was a fun quirky place with weird staff in a great location and was a cool experience! I'm just not giving it more than 3*s as our room was kinda old and rustic with an ugly bathroom! But do stay there and see for yourself!!

We stayed in Sofa Hotel in 2007 for the first time. It was February, which is usually off season in Cappadocia. The staff was so well-informed about the area that when the tourist info was closed in Avanos and we were lost without a map, they drew us a map of whole Cappadocia valley and that map accompanied us during our holiday.
It was the most peaceful holiday i've ever made in my life. After four years, i still recommend this hotel to all my friends who enjoy authentic places with friendly people.
I don't look for another place to stay when i visit Cappadocia.

This hotel has character plus. The rooms are large and full of memorabilia as is the whole hotel. Every nook and cranny is full of interesting bits and peices. The breakfast served had great variety and was very nice. The family that own the hotel are totally customer orientated and make you feel right at home. A great place to visit

This was a 'cave' hotel with oodles of character and great service. A real treat. An Avanos was a better town than Goreme as less tourist and more locals.

We loved our two night stay at this hotel and look back on it with fond memoires. We found the older owner quiet but friendly, and he always responded helpfully to any of our requests, including recommending some interesting local places to eat at. There are so many interesting ornaments around that it is a bit like staying in a museum, and we could have easily stayed for longer. This hotel has a very individual character, and I would recommend it for people who want to feel like that are staying in Turkey. It is not for people who prefer chain hotels.
