“A feel of living in a cave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

I stayed here for a night. I think it's one of the best accommodations in Goreme, Turkey. The hotel rooms are carved out of mountainous rocks to give it a feel of the place it's famous for. I had a living room, a large bathroom with shower, a Jacuzzi in the large bedroom with a dressing area and a kitchenette to make tea etc. It gave me a feel of living inside a cave. I have plenty of photos of this hotel. :)

The only thing that pinched me was that drinking water was not complimentary.

Room Tip: Choose room in upper floors to have a good view of the place.

This is real cave hotel and one of the best service in cappadocia. SPA is big and to much choice for refreshing. The view is incredible during sunset. People come to hotel and take picture goreme uchisar, kizil valley. Terrace is the best pleace for breakfast. Room decoration is outstanding and cleaning is 5 star standard. The staff is helpfull with smiling face. I can recommend this hotel for people who is looking for local experince with high standard service. Room rate is reasonable. Also there is indian restaurant indian chefs cook well with real indian food taste. We stayed three nights service in all department going well thank you for memorable stay.

Room Tip: Kerim, Who is reception supervisor can give you the best info during you reservation

Goreme is a beautiful small authentic Turkish village which houses the Kaymakli underground city. This hotel has "seen to be believed" suites carved out in the mountains and caves. I think it is the most expensive cave hotel in Turkey but is a once in a life time experience. General Manager Mr. Tahsin Topuzayak is always on his feet, constantly interacting with guests to understand their needs. They have a beautiful underground spa, so do not miss the opportunity to take a original Turkish "Hamam"!! The crowning glory for me was the brand new Indian restaurant that they have opened, goes by the name of Indian Rasoi.....Chef Vikram was kind enough to make us Khichdii and Pakoda's one evening....

Room Tip: I was lucky to get one of the Presidential suites but all their suites are very high quality.

It was an extremely short trip, cut further shot by a delay in flight,,but it was one of the best accomodations in Turkey. My room was atop , opposite the main block in the corner and I had a great view from a couple of chairs placed right next to the door. I had a living room, a bathroom with shower, a jacuzzi and a bedroom - everything was warm and gave a feeling of living inside a cave. The only bummer was that water was not served complimentary .

Room Tip: Ask for a room which is at a higher level, so that you get a great view

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your review with us. The feedback is very important for us to improve our service. Actually you have a bottle of water free of charge above your minibar on your arrival date. But water in minibar is in charge. Maybe there's a misunderstanding.

Thank you and hope you to come back to our hotel again.

Word on the street was that Anatolian Houses was THE place to stay in Cappadocia. I couldn't have faulted it. Amazing service (they served us breakfast at 4 am so we could go ballooning!) loads of space, in suite spa and sitting rooms. Great food. I was working so needed great wi-fi etc. staff were lovely and not a back-packer in sight.
Underground Hamam is a bargain with real massages! I went back twice in 4 days. Not your usual hotel fodder. The best sleep I'd had my whole trip- it was so cool and calm in the cave house. And walking distance to everything the area has to offer.
I extended my stay (despite my work load) because I didn't want to leave.
It's pretty lush, a great honeymoon/romantic getaway location. It was really very special and a

The room was okay. It had a cave like atmosphere. The amenities were good. We had a suite with double shower, whirlpool,bath, sitting room and large bedroom.
The breakfast menu was not adequate. Did not enjoy the breakfast. The service was slow. Dinner was not that great either. It is an expensive hotel and not really up to its mark. We had to pay to use the hotel swimming pool.

Cappadocia is replete with unusual rock formations and caves carved out of the rock centuries ago. This is a cave hotel with rooms inside the caves. It was spacious and the bathroom was quite modern. It got a bit warm and since there is no air conditioning, we used a fan. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. Goreme is a fun town to walk around, but the highlight of the area is visiting the rock formations, and the open air museum. We had a good guide (Gokhan Yaramis yaramis_gokhan@hotmail.com) who was quite reasonable and very knowledgable about the area and its history, One of us did an early morning balloon ride which is a terrific way to see the valley. However, two days later two ballons collided and several tourists died. Unfortunately, there are a lot of balloon companies sending balloons up at the same time, so in the early morning there are about 100 in the air--very crowded. Unless that gets a bit more regulated with restrictions on the number of balloons that can go up in one area, I would suggest that you think twice before taking the plunge (sorry for the bad choice of words).
