What a great experience. This is a family run hotel in the heart of Cappadocia. I arrived quite early due the the flight arrangements I had and we were promptly welcomed by GAMZE, the manager and pretty much owner of the place as it belongs to her family. She is a great woman with the hospitality charm running in her veins. It was earlier than 10 in the morning and she immediately asked if we were hungry and offered a complementary breakfast so we would do something pleasant while she would take care of the check-in. Not only she offered a room that early in the morning, but also she upgraded us to a cave room. As soon as you open the door of a cave room at Fresco it is impossible to hold back the WOW! It is HUGE! It is not that the bedroom is huge, but the lounge area is huge and the bathroom is pretty much a stardard room size in Paris ou London. The Shower area could pretty much be a hotel room in Tokyo. Also the ceiling is a few meters high as it has not been modified for centuries. Only the amenities were modernizes, such as the satelite TV, the heater, the lights and the furniture. The space remains the same over the centuries. I was sooooo pleased to stay there. I only wish I had time to stay a little longer. Breakfast was and I am sure it still is outstanding. The night views from the hotel are great. And not more than 5 minutes walk from the hotel you find the city center and the incredible restaurants of URGUP. I can possibly say that it was my best meal of that week in Turkey. The cherry of the cake is the cute ceramic bow from FRESCO I was given along the warm and sincere have a great trip, Also a courtesy of Gamze.
Thank you Very much Gamze and I will take some more friends back to stay with you soon.
