The hotel itself is really nice... you get the whole idea of what Cappadocia is and what you will see there. It's really amazing.

I so recommend it!!

When we walked into this place we grinned from ear to ear! The location is fabulous and the small inn is laid out perfectly so that you can appreciate the gorgeous landscape from all the rooms (which are carved into the rocky landscape) and lovely expansive terraces. And, the swimming pool is totally awesome! It was hot when we were there and the pool was clean and cool and so inviting after returning from our daily excursions -- very pleasurable indeed! But, don't let me forget the owners and staff... Everybody was really friendly and extraordinarily helpful, but not at all intrusive. If you let the owner know what you are interested in doing or seeing, he is full of really helpful advice and more than happy to arrange anything your heart desires at a very reasonable price. We definitely recommend this place!

Stayed here for 3 nights. Enjoyed the pool and company of others. Owners were most helpful providing suggestions for outings and organising day trips. Make sure you get up early in the morning to enjoy the view of balloons floating overhead, or if brave enough, do a flight. Would certainly stay here again.

The Local Cave House is run by a local family who are fun and helpful. We stayed here for a week and enjoyed our stay here alot. It was great to come back after a hot day for a swim in the big clean pool. To awake each morning to the sound and sights of the hot air balloons over the hotel was incredible and then an early morning swim before breakfast .The breakfast was local and delicious especially if you waited for Harun to arrive each morning with the Hot Bread. One tip don.t use Harun as an Alarm Clock !

The small hotel has some very nice rooms; partly the rooms are inside the fairy chimneys. The hotel, the rooms and the pool were very clean.
The owner and his wife are very friendly and helpful and relaxed.
The information given by the owner, e.g. for restaurants or tours were very good.

We felt very comfortable in this hotel and we could absolutely recommend it!

Four nights in the amazing lands of Capadoccia. We stayed in a family room with 2 kids aged 9 and 11 and found it very suitable for our needs. It is comfortable rather that luxurious .Two substantial rooms plus bathroom, an outdoor sitting area and a common sitting area overlooking the pool. We spent any down time in the outdoor areas as the weather was perfect for our stay. the included Turkish breakfast is modest but good enough to get the days started. Local Cave House has a great location just above the Goreme main street. it is quite apart from the Mosque calls at start just after 5 am and ring out over the whole town. Staff were very welcoming and helpful and gave us good recommendations on ballooning, horse riding, 4 wheel biking and car rentals. The hotel is a nice size that promotes some interaction with other guests but allows your own space too. Coffee lovers should find Ali, the Melbourne trained barista at Sofrat in the main street. Best food we found was at Somine Restaurant inn Urgup.

Booking process was slightly worrying as we couldn't communicate directly with hotel and had to go through 3rd party agency. This did work fine and they were expecting us and price as expected.

Our stay was great. Hotel owner really put himself out when it rained (it never rains in June!) and he took us round in his car when our booked trip was cancelled due to the rain. He arranged balloon flight, tours and transfers for us. Our room was a huge cave suite with 3 rooms terrace and great views. Bit of a walk up hill from the town (10mins stroll) but worth it to get the views and to stay in a cave.
