“Amazing Cave Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We travelled from Istanbul to Cappadocia by flight and arrived late at MDC Hotel, greeted warmly by Adi the Receptionist and were pleasantly surprise to see the room. The room is beautifully carved from a cave, and very spacious. Not only that, but it also has an extra bed room with sofa and baby crib for our 11 month old baby (and that is before we even asked for it!!). Plus, the bath room is super large with big jacuzzi, separate shower and also marble bed for massage if you wish for it. We stayed for two nights and really enjoy staying there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is nice but we are always in a hurry in the morning so always have a quick breakfast. All in all, MDC Hotel is really above our expectation for their hospitality, their spacious room and big jacuzzi. The only drawback is the location which is quite remote and the road going there is very narrow like an alley.

Room Tip: Choose the Cave room, not the new room

We are a turkish couple from Turkey, and visited Ürgüp previous New Year in 2011 Cappodocia. It was a private and also a bussines trip for me.
I would like to thank all the staff from bottum to top, providing us the best quality of service to make ourselves as in home. Hotel itseld was built in a history ( you may see the details on their website ) an located onlyy 5 -7 min walking distance to Ürgüp center. İt will be nice excursion walking from hotel to center, for the people who would like to see the side streets with old greek houses.
Each room has an individual concept, and large enough to feel yourself at home. Bathrooms is amazing, each of them has jacuzzi. Each room has an entrance, like small terasse, which you may spend you free times reading books, or making siesta in summer time, or just enjoying the valley's panaroma.
Thank to all staff once again, giving us so amazing service, and for their friendship... Hope to see them again :))


Ps: My journey was in December 2011, but i can not select on down the right information, because tripadvisor doesn't have it on their list

As a frequent traveler, I have stayed in different hotels nearly every other month. None has offered the same type of unique, comfortable and incredibly professional experience that MDC Hotel provided. Staying at this hotel was truly a wonderful vacation experience.

As most of the reviewers mention, the hospitality was a real treat, with Moustapha being someone I need to commend for being a warm and friendly individual who made the extra effort to go out of the way to ensure you enjoyed your stay. The property is gorgeous, with a backdrop of the famed Cappadocia mountains to make even your hotel a picture op. Additionally, the unique rooms were comfortable with huge bathrooms and cute basket of soaps and toiletries, Also - quick shout out to the chefs: The food was outstanding. As self-proclaimed foodies, my boyfriend and I gorged on culinary delights in Istanbul for a week yet none could compare (as delicious as they were) to the dinner we had at MDC Hotel.

To me, the only drawback was location. The hotel didn't seem very central and most activities seemed to have to be arranged through a tour provider (which the hotel very helpfully arranged for us, with personal recommendations).

Wish we could have stayed longer! Highly highly recommended to anyone visiting the area.

My wife and I really liked this hotel. They offer shuttle service from the airport to the hotel. Then, they greeted us with a basket of fruit. The room had an excellent ambiance, a nice jacuzzi, and plenty of space. The breakfast was amazing. They served everything from eggs tocheeses to meats to Turkish pancakes. The staff there was very friendly and helpful in advising us of fun outings.

Hi my daughter and I stayed at MDC for four nights and it was incredible. It was our first trip to cappadocia and the staff were warm and friendly making our trip that much more enjoyable. The hotel itself was great aswell as the management. The breakfast was amazing. The cave rooms made it appear like we were in a world of our own away from traffic. We would highly recommend this place.

What an amazing Hotel, the cave room that I stayed in was beautifully decorated and let me just say that after a long day hiking, exploring and great outdoor adventure in winter having a hot bath in Jacuzzi tub is what I really needed. Staff in the hotel is so friendly. The location of the hotel is a little bit secluded but they provide a free shuttle to Urgup city, but for me I'd prefer to dine in the hotel because the restaurant provides a very delicious Turkish food.

Room Tip: Make sure you have Jacuzzi tub in your bathroom, you're going to need it after long day explorin...
