The room was spacious and had a large tiles bathroom. We booked a “Deluxe Cave Room”. The room included a jetted tub that is important after a day out hiking or caving. The shower water pressure wasn’t great, which may have been a problem if we hadn’t had the tub. There was a sower in the tub that seemed to have better water pressure.
We were walked through town to the Goreme Open Air Museum in about 30 – 44 minutes. Make sure you take the short walk up the hill to sunset point! Plan to sit a bit after the sunset and soak in the view of Goreme and the sounds that come up the hill.
The hotel booked Recep Yuce as our guide for the day. He is a great English speaking tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and informative. His love of history and his country is apparent. We had a private tour, at a very good rate which included a driver and car, lunch, and admission to Derinkuyu Underground Museum. Recep showed us many sites, and asked us what we wanted to see. He was very comfortable making suggestions, or obliging requests. We went to a carpet weaver at our request. I wouldn’t recommend unless you’re really committed to buying a carpet. I actually had hoped to find a carpet, but the salesman didn’t seem interested in the size, colors and patterns, I said I was interested in, and kept showing me other rugs. I know he would have showed me more when I was ready to leave, but I was ready to leave. There is a lot of Cappadocia to see, and I didn’t want to spend a whole day at the carpet store. We also went to a pottery store. The demonstration was impressive, but the pottery pieces that are in the town of Goreme looked to be essentially that same and were much less expensive. Our stay in Goreme would not have been compete without the day with Recep, as he was easy to talk to and answered all my questions about the history and culture of his beautiful country.
The staff was friendly and helpful. Make sure you allow plenty of time to review your room charges at check out as some charges are quoted in euros, and others were quoted in dollars, and you want to assure that conversions are correct.
