“The best room with a view I have seen in many years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I booked a room with a view on Goreme valley. When we woke up, we saw 51 hot air balloons in the air. At the same time the sun was rising. What a view !
The staff is very helpful as well.
Best place in Uchisar as far as I am concerned.

Takaev benefits from an amazing location with excellent views across the town and the Pigeon Valley. The choices for breakfast are amazing! The staff has also been very helpful with advice on how to organise our days and even recommendations for renting a scooter, etc.
Albeit the start to our holiday took a step back when we were not given our chosen room, we ended up loving the ground floor cave room more than the upstairs one where we were ultimately switched. The staff also made up for the lack of roses which we were supposed to receive on arrival by giving us a lovely bottle of wine so all is all, we had a great stay.

What can I say that hasn't already been said before. We loved the whole experience of staying in this wonderful hotel from the amazing cave apartment and wonderful views to the fantastic breakfast and brilliant staff.
We arrived after midnight to be greeted with a smile by Enis who helped with the luggage and made us a drink.Water,tea,coffee etc available at all times free of charge. We were staying in the cave apartment which is fantastic.There were 2 double bedrooms both with incredible en suites.
Breakfast is superb with so much choice.Wonderful views from terrace of surounding area and a great place to watch the balloons at sunrise.Immediately Enis and Memet joined us to plan our itinerary. All the staff were outstanding and willing to help at all times.
Memet took the 4 of us in his car to Pigeon Valley,Love Valley,Goreme and surrounding areas all free of charge...our own personal guide.
We later went on a 2 hour organised walk with Memet and some other guests to watch the sunset in Rose Valley..a memorable experience.Again no charge.
They arranged a Green Tour for the following day...well worth doing.
They also organised a hot air balloon ride for our final morning. This was the highlight of our visit. An amazing way to see Cappadocia. What an experience.
We stayed for 3 days and wished we'd booked for longer.Would definitely go back to Takaev Hotel and would have no hesitation in recommending this to everyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in the apartment for 4 people. It is at the bottom of 4 flights of stairs so not ideal for...

What can I say that hundreds haven't said before?!

From the view to the rooms, the breakfast to the dinners, the staff to the guests - everything was fantastic.

Murat was a fantastic host, always keen to share his local knowledge and ensure that our stay was the best it possibly can be.

The food - breakfast was generous, fresh and there was a wonderful selection. Dinners are regularly organised at the hotel. Convenience stores, restaurants and a weekly market make the area great for anyone looking for a bite to eat. NOTE: make sure you ask Murat about the restaurant up the road with the always happy and completely eccentric man that cooks the most brilliant clay-pot lamb dish...not to mention that singing that comes gratis with your dining experience. This was also another highlight.

Murat - supremely accommodating and knowledgeable. Always ready to assist and an all around great guy. Organised a fantastic balloon trip for us. Between this and the hotel, Cappadocia was the most memorable part of our 3 month European trip.

The room - the suite was perfectly comfortable with great view over Pigeon Valley.

Facilities - a computer with good connection, terrace for enjoying the view during breakfast, lunch, dinner or any other time of day, 24hr tea and coffee available, indoor heated dining area available when it is fresh outside.

...by now you have probably decided to book this wonderful place - so, if it is available, DO IT NOW! You will not be disappointed :-)

An outstanding applause to the crew of Taka Ev for making my wife and I feel absolutely at home during our stay of four evenings and we experienced Turkish hospitality at its finest. Our best regards to Mehmet, Enis, Murat and the entire ensemble for making our first visit to Cappadocia a very memorable one. Fantastic recommendations for hikes and sights in the region, and definitely do not miss out on the hot air balloon ride which is a one of a kind experience. Uchisar is a great place to stay that delivers an authentic atmosphere that is away from the tourist bustle, and makes a great centralized base for exploring. No wonder the Uchisar Kalesi is situated where it is, and provides a great vantage point to all surrounding areas. We were very sad to leave on our last day but very much looking forward to our next visit. We already miss Taka Ev very much!

I had the chance to visit numerous countries with my family, and so, being able to recognize if a Hotel is worth it or not.
Takaev Hotel is remarkable. The hotel itself had everything you need, breakfast, comfortable and big rooms, gorgeous view of the valley. From this location you can start all your expeditions and on the evening, access to friendly restaurants serving a delicious food.
In addition, the welcome you will receive from the personal of the Hotel is not comparable to others hotels. The owner will give you priceless recommendations for expeditions and including can drive you to close location and arrange car rent.
Simply the best !

We stayed at Taka Ev for three nights and enjoyed every minute. The host Murat was incredibly helpful and took us hiking in Rose Valley. Has great recommends for ballooning and resturants in the area. A short walk to Goreme and a 2 lira bus ride back. Uchisar is a beautiful and quiet little city. We had a wonderful time! Thanks Murat!
