“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We were a group of 8 travellers, we spent 2 nights at MDC hotels on 12th to 14th Sept,
Words fail me to describe the extent of comfort we felt during our stay. We have to single out the efforts of Mr Mustafa in making our stay one to remember for the rest of our lives. He was ably supported by his ever smiling helpful staff.
what needs to be mentioned here is that the rooms were so unique and comfortable.
Mr Jalan specially enjoyed himself considering he has travelled extensively almost across the globe with he's gorgeous wife also a very finicky traveller.
I would STRONGLY recommend any one however discerning to experience the hospitality of MDC Cave hotels Capadoccia Turkey.

MDC is an interesting hotel. The rooms are built into the rocks. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated, if a little dark, with only a single window. The bathroom in particular needed better lighting -- hard to see in the shower! There is no air-conditioning, or even a room fan, so in summer (or early fall), it can be stuffy and hot. Some of the other rooms seem to have more windows, so maybe they let the cool evening breeze in better. The breakfast is nice, with lots of alternatives, and the staff are helpful and pleasant. It is within walking distance of downtown (15 min), so nice for getting to good restaurants if you don't have a car. Ugurp is centrally located within Cappadocia, so a good location.

Room Tip: Ask about number and size of windows -- more is better!

The staff at MDC hotel really made this a 5 star experience. From the moment we arrived, the general manager, Mustapha, went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. From booking us on tours and balloon rides to setting up airport transfers or shuttles to town we never had to worry about anything.

The hotel itself is also amazing. We had no real idea or expectation of what sleeping in a cave would be like. Would it be too cave like? Or not cave enough? MDC does an amazing job of keeping the caves authentic, but still providing great creature comforts like a comfortable bed and jacuzzi tub (which was useful after a long day of tours).

The restaurant is also nice. We ate there all 3 nights of our trip, and the breakfast spread is vast. The outdoor patio is a great place to unwind and have some drinks and listen to live turkish music. There's a nice family feel to the place, with the staff seeming to really enjoy their jobs and interacting with the guests.

Overall, the days in Cappadocia are mind-blowing but exhausting, and for us it made all the difference to have such a warm, relaxing atmosphere to come back to every evening.

The MDC is a beautiful hotel and more luxurious than we're used to so we were in awe! But the best thing about this hotel is the Manager and his staff - Mustafa is genuine, warm, welcoming, knowledgable, sincere and truly has customer service down pat. The staff are a reflection of his style as they are all very warm, friendly & very helpful. The Chef happily took our two boys into the garden to pick fresh produce & herbs for dinner and the gardener let them play with the hose while he watered the grounds. Our only suggestion was that the Hotel needed a pool to make it perfect....and apparently that's in the plans for next year!

Lovely place, manager is right on top of things. Only comment is that in August, the room heats up quickly if the door/windows are closed, apparently because the stone is warmer than you'd like the room to be.

Urgup is a nice place, but less central than Goreme.

great hotel. very nice and very confortable cave hotel. it is pure luxury, with stilish bedroom, small livingroom, terraces, patio and bathroom with jacuzi. staff is excellent - can organise everything for you (car, tours, etc) at right prices.
better to rent a car, as the hotel is 10 minutes from the centre of urgup. but once you have a car is really perfect.

Thank you for your recommendation of MDC Hotel. I am very glad you enjoyed all aspects of your stay and appreciated the services provided by the staff. You are right, we are in a privileged location only 10 minutes walk from Urgup's shops and restaurants but overlooking a beautiful tranquil valley. We can adapt our services to all our guests' needs or wishes - some of our guests prefer to stroll into the town center on foot through the pictoresque streets of Karagandere village, some choose to use our complementary shuttle and others prefer the freedom of having a hire car.
I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you once more on a future trip to Cappadocia.

We stayed two nights at the MDC. We had a suite which consisted of a living room, bedroom, bathroom and downstairs bedroom. The rooms were huge and modern and the amenities very good. To stay in a cave is an unforgettable experience. We are only sorry we couldn't stay longer. The manager, Mustafa, greeted us on arrival and seemed to be everywhere at any hour of the day and night. He was anxious to provide us with an outstanding stay and asked us to let him know of anything we wanted to make our stay perfect. Breakfast was quite an experience. We loved the variety of foods and I made savoury pancakes with the local staff sitting cross legged in the room adjacent to the beautiful inside/outside restaurant with a view of the hills. It was quite a highlight. It was so beautiful we didn't want to go into town after our days of tours. The dinner menu had a wide variety of offerings and they would also serve us on our private patio. We sat sipping local wine on our patio both days. Oh, and the WiFi reception was excellent and complimentary. all in all a fascinationg region to visit and a stay at the perfect hotel.
