We stayed here for 4 nights with our 3 boys (ages 8, 4 and 4) and found it lacking. Let me start by saying that this place could be great, but a whole bunch of small events conspired to make our stay not very good. Our first night was fine and at 80 TL for all of us, we thought we found a gem. Upon arival in Goreme we called for a pickup from the bus station and a few minutes later were met by the staff, who appeared very friendly. Our triple room was adequate - a decent size and of average cleanliness. The furnishings were rather spartan, but we're used to that after 10 months of travelling in hostels. The breakfast was the usual turkish fare, which is good, but the service was not great. Our host was too busy gaming (playing Wolf Team online) to give us service. If you wanted a second cup of tea or coffee, you had to go down to reception and ask him. I just started serving myself from their kitchen, as that was easier. The next day the hotel had no water. When I asked about it, the host said the whole town had the same problem, which was not true. He also asked all the guests to pay their bills in advance, right away. That evening the water returned but there was no hot water. The next morning, there was again no water and no staff to serve breakfast. As there were about 7 people waiting for breakfast, I went into the kitchen and finished getting the breakfasts assembled and then served everyone. When the host arrived, he said he had gone into town to pay the water bill, so now there would be water. This was June 1. Also on that day, the wifi stopped working. When I inquired about it, he said it would not be coming on. Maybe they didn't pay the internet provider? That night and the next day there was again no hot water and no wifi.
I am not sure if they are having a cash flow problem, but if all those little things were worked out I would definely rate the hotel higher. As it was for us, I would not recommend staying there.
