“Great Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights. Location fantastic as you are right in heart of Urgup and you can walk around the shops and restaurants etc especially after a hard day of tour.
The caved hotel is what it says it is you have to climb up and down all over the place and there is so many small lovely cozy corners. Breakfast is right on top in the terrace. The view there is fantastic. And the room is lovely decorated in Turkish style although it could have been equipped with a kettle for coffee and tea. The bathroom is very modern and as big as the bedroom.
The jewel of the hotel is Colleen. We planned out trip and booked all our tours through her before arriving. She resolves all your problems and get everything arranged for your holiday. Most hospitable and warm and friendly. I chose the hotel as I read about her from other travelers. No regrets!
The mosque in right in front you might want a room facing another direction. We were not disturbed by it as we were knock out after the day´s outing. Thanks once again Colleen!

Room Tip: Avoid room on the ground floor if you want to be totally isolated.

Thank you so much for your interesting review. You hit the spot when you point out that our hotel is located in the heart of Urgup – we are in an old street overlooking the town center, so everything you need is literally at your feet. Our hotel is really a collection of old houses joined together, so there are surprising ways to get from one area to another. And yes, we can help with tour arrangements and balloon flights before you get here – so important for the busy season: millions of people come to Cappadocia every year, so please don’t assume that we can get what you want at the last minute – while we always do our best to help, advanced booking can usually get exactly what you want. Wishing you many happy travels with love from all of us at Cave Konak Hotel.

Booked only one night at this hotel for a whirlwind tour through Cappadocia.
We arrived early @ around 0900 and had requested an early checkin prior to arrival.
While they were not able to guarentee the early checkin we were able to go straight to our rooms.
No hassle at check-in, and they were extrememly helpful in getting our bags to the rooms and just making us feel welcome.

Rooms - We booked two rooms. Both were very unique. We have four kids so we booked one room which was the Seljuk Suite. This room had two seperate bedrooms with a communal hallway. There was also private rooftop terrace access which gave you a nice view of the city and access to the break fast area. My wife and I booked into the Byzantine Suite which was one floor down from the main lobby area. Reputedly it had been used for making wine in the past. This room definitely had a cave feel to it, but had all the modern ameneties to make for a pleasant stay. Wifi, hot showers, nice lighting, etc.

Food - Didn't eat the breakfast just due to our scheduling. We saw it the first day. I would term it a basic Turkish breakfast. Looked fresh, kids ate after our balloon ride with no complaints.

Serivce - Excellent. Colleen could not have been more helpful and friendly. She gave great advice on dining venues (she had suggested Ikinci Bahar which fed a family a six a fantastic meal of more than we could eat for less than 60TL). She helped book our guided tour the first day and also helped with arranging the transfers from the airports. She also suggested a good bar for us to watch the world cup just around the corner.

Location - Excellent location for walking into town. Plenty of eating establishments and shopping within a few minutes walk.

Return airport shuttle was about one hour, crowded, with a very hilly and curvy route. If you have kids that get carsick, take a bonine before you get on the bus we almost had an incident...

Room Tip: Byzantine Room for Cave experience. Suljuk Room comfortably sleeps four (two singles in one room an...

Many thanks for your thoughtful comments. Our guests typically spend just a couple of nights here and we are always willing to help with suggestions of how to see the best of the best in Cappadocia. Being right next to the town center is an added bonus (so handy for everyday needs), and we are so lucky with the spectacular views from our terrace. Love from all of us.

This is the perfect place to stay for an incredible visit to Urgup! Our room was a beautiful surprise – the amenities, design, lighting, furnishings, cleanliness all created a superb experience, you are surrounded by ancient authenticity, but in the comfort of new luxury! Such attention to detail! Our favorite spot was outside, up above the rooms, on the terrace for breath-taking views for our morning breakfast, and peaceful sitting after dark with all of the lights in the town. Adnan and Colleen were so helpful in guiding us to the right locations for experiencing all of Cappadocia, and then the perfect spot for our dinners in Urgup. You can walk to everything in town. Their hospitality is over the top – They genuinely express care for their guests in every way! The entire staff is attentive and hospitable. I can not think of anything that could be better !

Thanks for your “perfect” review! Our central location and the views from our terrace are certainly an advantage for all our guests. But thank you most of all for appreciating the “ancient authenticity” of our restoration. We definitely feel rewarded by your comments :) Wishing you many happy travels…

I would label myself as a city-dweller that I couldn't stop marveling at this 1000 year old cave hotel! Wow. Wow. Wow. At first glance it was nothing spectacular as I stood in front of the hotel's lobby. But the moment I was led into this seemingly small door, leading me by the narrow stony staircase that goes down down down to my bedroom. I was fascinated.

I couldn't believe that I am living in a real cave, underground! oh my gawd.

At first i felt a bit afraid, thoughts of all the ghostly figures swiped my ignorant head.
When I entered the room, everything changed.

The underground-room i had used to be the wine-making kitchen. As i laid on the bed, i looked up gazing into the narrow tunnel window that led up to the window above at ground level. What amazing architecture! It kept the room at cooling temperature, not too cold, and not warm (obviously).

I traced my fingers against the rocky/stony whatever cave wall, and the puny powders trickling down onto the floors... nothing could be more real. I was having a cave-woman experience!

The toilet was beautiful and spacious. Clean. I got all i needed.

The room was spacious too, albeit the ceiling was considered low. But this is a cave! Forget about high ceiling. You aren't here for that.

Bed is comfortable.

There are lights in the room. So don't worry. But don't expect city-hotel kind of grandeur lights. It is just some standard light bulbs in the room. Sufficient.

Windows? No real windows. We were underground. You'd only see air-vent tunnels that leads up to the level ground above.

Heater is not that warmed-up though. If you are afraid of cold, you may have some problems getting it hot. Otherwise, it's cool.

No Television for the city-freaks though. Zero entertainment. Good news is that you have wi-fi!
So turn on your cell-phone. Bring your phone charger, you need it.

Balcony? Of course! Good views. But rendered kind of useless in cold seasons... the winds are too cold at night to have alfresco time. And they don't really have heaters. We did requested for those mobile heaters though... and they were kind enough to provide. But still too cold! Perhaps if you are used to cold weather, it will be fine for you. I'm a singaporean, tropical weather.

Location of hotel? pretty good. Across the street you have many restaurants and shops. A great place to move about!

Breakfast within hotel? Not fantastic. But you have lots of choice across the road. Why worry?!

Would I recommend? Of course!

Thank you so much – I loved reading your review! I even visited your facebook page – especially after your comment about breakfast. I loved your meal photos. As you obviously love food that is not western or middle-eastern style, I have a question for you: What would you recommend we could add to our breakfast spread? You can drop me a line at our info e-mail at cavekonak. Many thanks and love from all of us :)
