We booked our lodging at The Museum Hotel on recommendation of a friend who is an ex-pat and well traveled in Turkey. Our Museum Hotel experience met or exceeded all of our expectations. Staff greeted us with a relaxed and friendly manner. Our room, 'the Harem" ,was a spacious cave suite with it's own wine tap, large jacuzzi tub and heated marble floors. Some reviewers mention the beds being hard - we've found that hotel beds are generally firm throughout Turkey. We dined at the on sight restaurant, Lila, and truely enjoyed the food but the view of the valley floor as the sun reflected it's final rays was spectacular. Breakfast on the terrace at the same restaurant offered an extensive array of traditional Turkish and European fare along with views of numerous hot air balloons drifting back to earth after sunrise excursions. The restaurant served some local wines from grapes unfamiliar to us. We especially enjoyed the reds and added a delightful tour of the Turasan Winery in Urgup to learn more about viticulture in this area. The Museum Hotel is an actual museum of treasures discovered in the Cappadocian area and is lovingly supervised by the hotel's owner. We found the Museum Hotel and Uchisar [highest hisar] to be the perfect launching point for a tour of magical Cappadocia.
