“Great getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

SOS Cave Hotel is absolutely amazing. The friendly staff were extremely helpful and the scenery is out of this world! For the first time I felt comfortable living in a hotel- the cleanliness levels are amazing, it really makes your stay so much more enjoyable. Definitely recommend SOS Cave Hotel to all ages!

I had the best time at SOS Cave Hotel, although brief (we were only there for 3 days) but Musa and his friendly staff made sure that we had the best experience in a short space of time. The location is perfect - serene, quiet and peaceful! Our room was exceptionally clean which I was super happy about...it makes ones stay so much easier and comfortable. I spent most of my time on the patio with a breathtaking view.Turkish night is a must do, soooo much fun, just ask Musa - he is always willing to assist. I would definitely recommend SOS Cave Hotel - can't wait to go back!

My husband and myself stayed at this hotel last October the position was great the staff treated us like family the whole experience was wonderful This October we are returning and taking 9 friends with us. If anybody wants to experience the real way of Turkish life try this Hotel and the Fabulous area named Cappadocia. I used to work in Travel and have been many places Turkey has been my home now for the last 7 years and my a adventure still continues

Room Tip: pay a bit more and experience a cave room

Great hotel in Goreme, with wonderful view. The owner is very gentle, kind and hospitable, always ready to help you. Breakfast is awsome! Many fresh products (cheese, olives, fruits, sweets, juices, omelettes, rolls...). The hotel is not in the centre (which is quite close) so it's really quiet. Rooms are simple but clean.

We stayed in SOS for 2 nights. The location of the place is breathtaking! View from the patio is so beautiful. Service was fantastic. Musa and his staff made us feel like at home.
Rooms are big, comfortable and very clean. Very nice breakfast in the morning. All our trips were smoothly organized. Turkish Night was so much fun!
I strongly recommend SOS Cave Hotel.
Brilliant place.

We stayed three nights in a deluxe room. It was in an actual cave room where even the bed frame was carved into the rock itself. Our rooms private balcony had a fantastic view of the rock formations in the mornings. The place is run by a great team of staff led by Musa. They were always ready to assist with a smile, regardless of the time. We arrived late at night on our first night and were led directly to our room and told we could do check-in formalities in the morning. That was greatly appreciated as we were pretty tired. A special thank you to Vulkan for this and for his regular friendly and caring conversation. There were a few other particularly nice touches at the hotel including the best selection of (real) breakfast juices we've experienced in Turkey so far. Everywhere else seems to use cordial or something that tastes like Tang. Also, we were offered the use of one of their showers after our half day hike. We had actually already checked out of our hotel room that morning and were waiting in the hotel for our shuttle bus pick-up. That shower was very much appreciated!
Just a suggestion, it would be great if there was a small bottle of water or two available for purchase within the actual hotel rooms as we would have loved something to brush our teeth with when we arrived late that first night.
It might be worth booking tours through the hotel as it seemed to be the way to get the best local deals (unfortunately we had per-booked all of ours) and if you are interested in buying a Turkish carpet or rug, we highly recommend asking Musa for a lesson before you go and buy!
