“Wonderful Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

What a wonderful stay! The room was incredible, the hotel was beautiful, the service was fantastic, and the food was amazing. This was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had in our many travels. We were personally welcomed by Mustaffah, the hotel manager, and were made to feel very comfortable in the beautiful hotel lobby and were offered our choice of tea while we were checked in and our bags were brought to the room. Mustaffah personally escorted us to our room and showed us around. The room was absolutely incredible. All the rooms are cave rooms, which is unique in and of itself, but they have been beautifully decorated and have all the finest amenities. Our room was huge, with a king-sized bed and a large built in Turkish style bench/couch with plush cushions. The bathroom was very large with beautiful granite and tile and had a Jacuzzi tub. There was complimentary wireless internet access with a very strong signal in the room. The only thing resembling a complaint I might have is that it did not have a separate shower. The shower was European style, meaning that the tub had a hand shower which could be used. Again, very European in style, so I can’t really call it a complaint, but a separate stall shower would have added some convenience.

We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant and the only word I can say is wow. We were famished after a full day tour of Cappadocia, and wanted to try many different things off of the menu. Each thing we tried was absolutely delicious. The prices were extremely reasonable, especially when compared with the quality of the food. We were raving so much to the waiter that he offered for us to meet the chef, which we promptly agreed to do. He came out and greeted us, and we thanked him for such a wonderful meal. During our meal, there was also live Turkish music, which added even more charm to the whole experience.

The next morning we had breakfast at the restaurant again (it was included in our package), and it was equally delicious as the meal the night before. Some Turkish women were making traditional Turkish pancakes and gave us a demonstration on how they were prepared. While we were watching them make the pancakes, our table was filled with an assortment of delicious Turkish breakfast foods. Quite a spread, I must say.

We were checking out that morning and going on another full day tour in Cappadocia. After our tour we were scheduled to be brought to another hotel close to the center of town to wait for our transfer to the airport that evening. We had enjoyed the food and the hotel so much, that we requested to be brought back to the MDC Hotel in the evening after our tour instead in order to have another wonderful dinner before being taken to the airport. Mustaffah made all the arrangements for us, and that is exactly what we did. After our tour, we were taken back to the MDC Hotel and were once again personally greeted by Mustaffah. He sat and chit chatted with us in the lobby over tea before we went to the restaurant for our dinner. After dinner, our bags were carried to the waiting van, and he personally walked us out and wished us good travels.

I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone going to Cappadocia. Our experience was so good, that to be honest, I would consider going to Cappadocia just to relax at this hotel for a few days. Much thanks to Mustaffah, MDC Hotel and Jasminne Tours in Istanbul for making this all happen. A truly wonderful experience.

This was the best hotel we could have hoped for, the suite we stayed in was in a cave and very luxurious. The hotel ambience was excellent and the staff were very hospitable. Especially our guide and later we know he is the owner of hotel Mr. Ahmed with his friendly and hospitable manner of hosting the guests, and the very supportive staff especially Mr. Mustafa I must mentioned his name as he was the most friendly staff I met in amoung the hotel staff, although everyone was hospitable and friendly. As we spoke to him the most, and he went above and beyond and we were just so grateful to him.

The breakfast was excellent. There was a lot of space in this room and an incredible bathroom attached. There is something very special about these caves that gave us the best sleep to date!

Amazing part of Turkey..!! For anyone visiting Cappadocia we would enthusiastically recommend MDC to stay in.

We stayed at the MDC by chance as it was included I'm a 2 day tour. What a great surprise! Fantastic cave room with our own mini Hamam & double Jaccuzi. Every room is unique & well appointed with Turkish textiles and furniture made on site. Beautiful restaurant overlooking the small valley in front of the hotel. The food and service were excellent. This hotel is a real treasure and we plan to return in warmer weather.

I would summarize my experience in few crisp points.
1. A one of its kind Hotel. It is place carved out from a Cave. This means you actually stay
inside a luxury cave.
2. Staff are very courteous and friendly. My kids used to play with the Hotel Cleaning Staff,
while at Hotel.
3. The restaurant offers a very unique breakfast, traditional (some local ladies prepare in a
corner some local breads stuffed with cheese / Potatoes / Spinach) and modern.
4. You can walk across the Hotel and you will be greeted with a very friendly farmer. You
can chat with him and even work at his farm (no remuneration) but you will feel good.

Our experience here was exceptional. The staff automatically upgraded our room because they had a better one available. The breakfast was excellent. There was a lot of space in this room and an incredible bathroom attached. Though the staff were the best part about the hotel, they were incredibly helpful. They booked events and transportation for us at little notice and let me stay in the room after checkout.

This was the best hotel we could have hoped for in an amazing part of Turkey.

Awesome, incredibly cool hotel, incredibly nice staff, delicious breakfast buffet. They let us use a room to nap and shower hours after we checked out, without any extra charge, and gave us a free ride to the bus station. Highly recommended. A great experience.
