This was a great place to stay in Cappadocia as Goreme is centrally located to all the interesting sites and Goreme is a very nice little village. The folks at Elysee Pension provide great advice on things to see, places to eat, etc. Deniz is a character He is well known in the town and he certainly makes for interesting conversation. They did a great family style dinner/barbeque at the roof top restaurant the day we arrived, which was a fantastic and fun meal. Our only recomendation would be for the rooms to be cleaned every day. We would definitely stay there again if we were to return.
Elysee also is associated with a hot air balloon company, which was the highlight of our two week trip to Turkey. Geert, who is associated with Elysee, was also our balloon pilot and was very informative and professional. Geert went well out of his way prior to our arrival to respond to numerous emails and questions that we had as we prepared for our trip.
Cengiz, the owner, also helped arrange for us to attend an evening of Turkish folk dance which we found to be very enjoyable.
