“UNFORGETTABLE GOREME HOUSE>....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2009

Words cannot do justice to our stay in Goreme House.... I had read excellent reviews of d property and was expecting it to be good , but this enchanting place surpassed all our expectations & made us fall in love with Cappadocia... Between d five of us friends we had d suite and two deluxe rooms... The rooms were comfortable with nice bathrooms.. Though not very big in size they had all d basic amenities... The staff : starting from d manager Hallis to d all rounder Guide Kadir, d ever smiling handy man and d beautiful cleaning lady were all very efficient and warm people who made our stay perfect...
They planned d perfect sightseeing trips for us and we made d most of our short trip of 3 days...
They were always ready to provide us with complimentary bottled water ( even at 1 AM) In european countries its a boon to get unlimited bottled water...
Breakfast was very homely and there was a spread of lovely local cheeses and amazing homemade jams along with d standard stuff...
To put it in a nutshell it was d best experience we have had in any hotel and we hope to go there again someday soon... Thanks to Goreme House - Cappadocia became the highlight of our trip to turkey....

If one were to look for a perfect place to holiday then this is it this is it this is it.....its so heavenly....

you can fall in love with the location, the picture perfect scenario all around, the service available(especially Halis and Kadir)as they are pure darlings,the fun all around and one can go on an on praising the place.

to tell you in brief, just get yourselves parked at this place an before you can thank God you can think of buying me a gift from there just for taking my views...( i love those awsome bracelets available opposite Goreme House and its easier to courier them too as your bags am sure will be bursting with the pottery stuff that you will buy from there)...

so just get there and experience the heavenly abode....cheers folks

We stayed for six nights in Goreme House in June, 2008, and we still miss the staff and environment there! I was just emailing them today to see how everyone is doing and thought I should write my first review on Trip Advisor while I'm at it. We got into Goreme early in the morning after an overnight bus ride from Antalya and walked around town looking for a place to stay. After seeing a few other places that were pretty nice, we came across Goreme House and were sold by the friendliness of the staff, the exceptionally good location, and the stunning rooftop terrace. Our standard room on the second room was beautiful and luxurious by our standards (we're generally budget travelers). We have traveled to many countries in the world and we rank the staff at Goreme House to be the kindest, most generous people we have ever stayed with (and Hollis is VERY funny and gave outstanding suggestions for hikes). And the breakfast is excellent! Don't miss out in a chance to experience true Turkish hospitality. We would go back to Turkey just to stay with them again.

we stayed in a standard room here. The bathroom and breakfast were good. The room was small and the walls unplastered, yet not cavelike either. I'm not sure that this was successful, however the other reviewers seem to like the place.

The thing which marks out this hotel is the ammount of help it offers its guests. The staff do get involved. However I have two complaints:

1) I'm not sure that the tour guides associated with the hotel can be trusted, but then maybe i'm just suspicious.

2) When I made the booking with the hotel i was offered airport transfers. These appeared to be free. It turned out that only the first one was complimentary, and the second was to be paid for. I didn't mind paying but i would have liked to have known.

In October of 2008, I stayed at Goreme House Hotel for three nights. Being in Cappadocia was magical, and the magic was greatly enhanced by our stay at Goreme House. From the moment we arrived, Halis, Kadir, and Josef (the manager and his staff) made us feel welcome and at home. Their knowledge of the area is extensive and they willingly and cheerfully shared it with us.
The hotel itself is small, quaint, and beautiful, and we greatly enjoyed the stunning views (hot air balloons and minarets and fairy chimneys!) from the rooftop at breakfast and relaxing in the courtyard on comfy cushions in the evening, after long days of sightseeing. The rooms were very comfortable and warm, and in all of our travels in Turkey, it was the only hotel to have complimentary coffee and tea in the rooms.
I would recommend everyone travelling to Cappadocia to stay at the Goreme House Hotel, and I will definitely plan to return there myself!

Cappadoccia was the highlight of our trip to Turkey.

Recently 4 of us spent 6 nights at Goreme House and loved it.

We all thought the value for money was excellent. Breakfast, rooms, location all fabulous.
Plenty of local information and assistance available from the office. Good value tailor made day trips available, and last but not least the very entertaining and much loved Denis (you'll have to go to find out!) all made it a very memorable trip for us. Cant wait to go back, would highly recommend this boutique hotel

Our stay at Goreme and Goreme House was the highlight of our 3 weeks of independent travel through Turkey. We felt welcome and comfortable here. The hotel is small but excellently located in Goreme with utterly stunning views from the terraced restaurant roof garden across a sea of cave houses and fairy chimneys. Imagine breakfasting on fresh fruit made-to-order eggs and pastries with hot air balloons drifting close by over the rim of the escarpment in the distance! The rooms were comfortable, well serviced and supplied with tea and coffee making facilities. The manager and his staff made our stay really enjoyable because they were exceptionally friendly, helpful and thoroughly knowledgeable and able to offer good suggestions for sightseeing and other activities.

Cappadocia Goreme House Hotel offers enchanting and elegant accommodation in a restored old Cappadocian House. Close and convenient to downtown, restaurants, Museums, shopping and attractions in Cappadocia. Immerse yourself in an atmosphere that is delightfully different... Goreme House Hotel, nestled on the back slopes of Goreme Village, was constructed and completed in 1997. The hotel harmoniously fuses together traditional Anatolian style with modern comforts in order to create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere to meet the needs of today's traveler. In constructing Goreme House Hotel, the style was kept as traditional as possible while stressing the importance of details. Blocks of natural rock were used to create the cool and spacious arch rooms. Wood floors and panel decorations were added for warmth. Modern bathroom amenities as well as central heating make even the weariest of travelers feel at home. Goreme House Hotel is not your everyday, conventional hotel. It has a warm, guest house feel with extremely personal care, breathtaking views, and many quaint corners to "slip away" with a good book or simply enjoy the views of village life activities going on down below. Homey yet professional is the general ambiance. ... more   less
