Cappadocia Cave Suites is a very nice hotel built in and around the cave structures created by earlier occupants, a perfect example of recycling! It is the nicest "hole in the wall" I have ever stayed in. The hotel rooms are all located in, among or next to the wonderful pointed tepee-like stone structures of the Cappadocian landscape up on the side of the hill in the village of Goreme, Turkey. Many of the rooms are cave-like although some built high up in the stone have spectacular views over the village and the countryside. Every room has a sitting room, a bedroom and a bathroom and each one is unique. One lovely aerie had old pigeon nest alcoves as part of the original "decor" of the room. There are lovely Turkish carpets and comfortable furniture in every room which I saw. The restaurant in the hotel is excellent serving both buffet for the first course and then excellent plated meal for the second course. Breakfast has many choices and was always excellent. Our particular room was a cave room with only two tiny windows for ventilation only, as they were too high up to see out and would have given a look at patio if you could look out them. I must say I was happy with the room because of two factors: it was sometimes snowing outside and the external temperature was around 4 degrees Celsius. Our room was cozy with only the bathroom towel rack heater going even though there were working radiators in both our sitting room and our bedroom. On the downside, if you turned on all the radiators it would drive you outside in minutes by being much too hot in the room. On the upside the bathroom towel rack was both a heater and a laundry dryer as well and it worked perfectly for both. My one complaint was that the boiler was operated by coal and the coal smoke hung in the air and got into our room if we opened a window for ventilation. The smell when the wind was "right" was not good. No one else mentioned this problem to me in our tour group, so I think it may have been the placement of our room that caught the smoke. I think we were in room #9 and I would avoid that as well as #4 which was closer yet to the smoke stack from the boiler. Also there is no public internet access unless you bring your own machine. I think the place must be a lovely place in the later spring, summer and fall. There were patios between all the rooms with chairs and tables with umbrellas to sit out in when the weather was fine. A glass of the local wine (which was good!) and some nuts or grilled vegetable appetizer would have made a lovely way to while away time before dinner or after a long day of touring.
