From the moment we walked onto the terrace, on the way to the reception, we knew we were going to love this place. But we had no idea how much we would love it. Taskonak is a wonderful cave hotel in the center of Goreme - Fairy Chimney capital of the world. We were immediately greeted by Angela, the owner of the hotel who offered us some delicious tea. But let me back up for a minute. Before we even stepped foot in Turkey, Angela was helping us arrange our visit to Cappadocia. She helped to arrange the airport pickup, three wonderful tours with Heritage Travel and answered all the questions we had when arranging our trip. I knew we were going to be in good hands at Taskonak. But back to our arrival. Angela helped orient us to the town; where to eat (Fat Boys - owned by her and her husband - which will be separate review - but suffice it to say - don't miss it), where to visit, where to hike and where to buy the best souvenirs. Our luggage was taken to our stone room down the narrow steps, which though not technically a cave, felt like one in a good sense. We always joked with our daughter when she was younger who liked hanging out in her room (referring to it as her cave). In our conversations with her over Skype during our stay; we told her that now mom and dad are enjoying their own cave. The first morning, I looked outside our window and saw a hotair balloon. I remembered seeing pictures of them so I threw on some clothes, ran upstairs to the terrace and all of a sudden, my eyes and nose were treated to the most amazing sights and smells - Angela's incredible breakfast with fresh baked zuchinni bread (with chocolate chips) and the most amazing parade of hotair balloons floating over the valley as the sun rose over the hills. From that morning on, we would have the most delicious breakfast on the terrace for several hours while watching the balloon show over Goreme. My only disappointment at this moment, is that we can't be there tomorrow morning. We can't recommend the Taskonak Hotel enough. We will definitely return one day.
