“Excellent and recommended inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This little inn is a terrific place to stay while in Goreme, Cappadocia region. Our family of 4 stayed in the "Honeymoon" suite, which is supposed to be renamed "Family" , as it offers a flexible arrangement of beds, suitable up to 6 people. The room is finished in a popular local "cavelike" style, with textured walls and detail. There's also a fireplace, large bathroom and balcony. As noted by others, Deniz, the manager is a most helpful with his knowledge, having lived in the area most of his life. In addition to his subtle humour, a restaurant recommendation he made, led to some special attention once we mentioned his name. The rooftop setting was nice and bright for the included, traditional breakfast, buffet style.

Élysee Pension is well located, a 5 minute walk to the centre of town. Note that Goreme is probably the best town to stay in the Cappadocia area, being central to many attractions and with numerous tourist amenities. Highly recommended and a very good value.

Room Tip: For families with kids, the Honeymoon suite is perfect.

Hi, I can not say enough about this place. The first impression when I entered the hotel was "wow". It actually gives you the true feeling of cave houses with all the modern facilities. If you like the architect of the buildings, you would love this place. Most of all, the manager, Deniz. He is the most helpful person I have ever seen. On the first night, he walked with us to take us to the best restaurant in town, so we don't get lost. Then my husband had to go to the emergency hospital, he not only told us the directions, he went with us. it was 30 minutes long ride. He translated everything for our convienience. He stayed with us the whole way, like a family. can not thank him enough. He WILL make you feel home. Loved our stay there.

Room Tip: We had the Honeymoon room. which accommodated 4 adults and 2 kids. great room with beautiful view

The Pension and the staff had plenty of character and lots of charm. The room we had was spacious and very clean. We had a good view of the balloons in the morning, and the rooftop breakfast was fresh and tasty. Deniz was helpful and accommodating. We loved our stay, and would stay again.

We stayed for 4 nights in a standard four person room at Elysee Pansion. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable, (even had a random extra bed). Also, heating in the room and hot water pressure was excellent and the bathroom was huge! The room was nicely partitioned into 2 single beds in the front and a king bed in the back so that everyone had some privacy. The upstairs common use room was also extremely comfy, with free flow tea and coffee and a fireplace.

Deniz, the manager was extremely helpful, giving us information about the regions, providing directions and helping us make bookings for tours, shuttles etc. Even when we checked out he made sure we were still comfortable by letting us use an unoccupied room to keep our luggages and take a shower before our flight.

Also, the location of the hotel is excellent, close to the city center and all attractions.

Overall, an excellent stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to go to Cappadocia!

Very pleasant experience staying here with our Intrepid guide and group. Rooms were ready when we arrived, Denis was very accomodating, our door lock was broken on check in but he fixed it right away while we all went out. Denis was very helpful with information and whenever we went into the dining area with bottle of wine or just to hang out, he always lit a fire for us, so appreciated. Would definately reccomend this Pension.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking town have better view.

We had a wonderful few days in Goreme. Deniz was a very accommodating manager, nothing being too much trouble (even the rude attitude of other guests). The hotel provided a lovely outdoor area, which was a great space for our young boys to play (and Deniz, when he had time to join them), and was an easy walking distance to the main tourist strip of the town for shopping and restaurants. The breakfast was a great start to the day, located on the terrace roof top - worth getting up early to see all the balloons over the valley. Overall, one of the highlights of our trip to Turkey.
