We had a fabulous, albeit short stay, in the wonderful Kilim Pension. Our room (#2) had a recently renovated bath room that was more boutique than bargain pension (see picture.) Lots of hot water any time of day, and a separate, roomy, glass-doored shower with stone tiles and an arched ceiling. Beds are comfy and the view over the valley is fantastic. The hotel sits very high up, right against the Uchisar castle. You can easily walk behind the hotel to the peak to watch the sunset. Sisik, the owner, is very warm, but never invasive. He leads free hikes through the valleys every morning. We went on a challenging and stunning 3 - 4 hour hike in the Green Valley. Sisik grew up in Uchisar and is very familiar with the terrain. We would not normally take a guided anything, but this one was wonderful, and we certainly could not have found our way along the tiny, branching, unmarked wilderness paths without his guidance. Sisik is the kind of guide to silently stop for a few moments to let you absorb the view, without giving a lot of commentary. While popular Capadoccia can sometimes feel over run, this walk felt very remote. The first part gave us vistas across the landscape, and the second part descended into a valley full of wild flowers and pigeon houses. Very memorable. Sisik also gave us some great advice to take advantage of our car rental and see the less-touristed underground city of Tatlarin. It wasn't in any of our guidebooks, and it was one one of the best things we did on the trip. We opted for a regular room at Kilim, preferring the light and a view to the cave experience. Saw the cave rooms and they also looked beautiful, and very large, with a sweet little table and chairs sitting area near the big arched-window entrances. Rooms one and two both seem to have more privacy than some of the other rooms because their windows face out toward the valley (instead of a shared balcony walkway.) We saw dozens of balloons from our window on the dawn of our last day. Gorgeous. While Uchisar caters primarily to French tourists, Kilim makes English-speakers very welcome, and Sisik speaks English well enough for all needs. The breakfast is plentiful and fresh, and the terrace has a stunning panorama view point. We ate our dinners in the cave-style restaurant in the Pension. The menu - soup, salad, main and dessert - seemed like a real bargain, and was delicious. Certainly one of the best rooms we have had in Turkey. Hope to one day return and stay here again.
