early morning balooning, trekking tours and exquisite culinary experiences. Esbelli House with its spacious cave rooms, all individually decorated with antiques hand picked by the gracious owner, Suha over the years feels more like an old mansion than a hotel.

We arrived at the hotel from Istanbul. The tranquility of the area was such a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul. From the minute we were greeted at the door, we knew this was a special place. Suha, the owner, met us and personally showed us around the grounds. He showed us 2 rooms in the category we reserved and gave us a choice as to which one we wanted. The room had all of the amenities we needed. Everything was well thought out, right down to the powerbar that could be used for recharging North American electronics. Breakfast, including fresh orange juice and a variety of freshly made egg dishes was a great way to begin our full days of activities. Suha's recommendations for hot air balloon rides and guided tours were fantastic. There were excellent restaurants within a short walk (Ziggy's Cafe and Dimrit). We never felt nervous about walking back to the hotel late at night. The hotel was magical for our 3 night stay. On the morning of our departure, Suha was at the main door to say goodbye....very classy! We will definitely return to this hotel in the future.

Suha is an incredible host who cares deeply about his hotel and his environs. He has filled Esbelli Evi with beautiful artwork and landscaping, homey Turkish furnishing and true serenity. My husband, two teenaged children and I just stayed in the fantasy cave for three nights and were sad to leave. It's the only hotel I've stayed at where I can honestly say the hotel is even nicer than the pictures. (Some hotels barely look like the pictures on their website.) I can't think of one weak point of Esbelli Evi. Thank you Suha for your generous hospitality. Two different groups of friends recommended your hotel to us and we will enthusiastically recommend it to others.

We, agroup of five have spent a memorable four days in Urgup with a perfect choice of accomodation , early morning balooning, trekking tours and exquisite culinary experiences.

Esbelli House with its spacious cave rooms, all individually decorated with antiques hand picked by the gracious owner, Suha over the years feels more like an old mansion than a hotel.

When you arrive you set your foot in to a quite, small hall giving no hint for a hotel with several doors opening to it one of which is a large sitting room full classical and jazz cd's for guests to enjoy , complete with a piano ready to be played and lots of books to be red.
One other door will take you down to a court yard where all the cave rooms, immaculate with spacious and renovated bathrooms are looking at . As years go by Suha has expanded the property adding more rooms and suits, keeping the entirety of the grounds.

Another door takes you to the dinning area and kitchen via a room decorated authentically if not for the two computers for checkin-out purposes and where you may find one of the courteus staff.

The breakfast, complete with fresh from the oven simit (turkish sesame bagels) and breads, homemade jams, eggs to order and freshly squeezed orange juice, weather permiting served on a patio with a nice view. Othervise you will be hosted in several elegantly arranged rooms all looking at the same view along with always tastefully selected classical or jazz music in the backgorund.

Suha and the staff are always there to answer all your needs even before you put it in words ( on one cloudy would be rainy morning several umbrella's were waiting at the entrance for us to pick before we took of for trekking ), providing an unforgettable experience at a homely setting .

Look nowhere else, this is the perfect hotel. From the room to the attentiveness of the staff to the luscious breakfasts on the terrace it was a first rate experience.

We stayed two nights in the Labyrinth Suite at Esbelli Evi during a 2 week vacation in Greece and Turkey that featured many great hotels. Although it was not the fanciest or the most expensive (by a long shot), Esbelli Evi stood out for its comfort, character, and service. The staff made the sitting room into an extra bedroom for one of my daughters by setting up not just a cot, but a full bed. The suite was very spacious and beautifully appointed with comfortable beds, refreshments, satellite TV, wireless internet, and a loverly terrace with a view. We only had one breakfast there, but it was superb with delicious fresh juice and a large variety of eggs to order. Suha and the other staff were extremely accommodating and arranged interesting tours for us. Unfortunately our balloon flight was cancelled due to rare weather issues, but going back to sleep for a few hours was almost as entertaining and a lot cheaper. Ziggy's restaurant down the road was excellent for dinner too.

Staying at Esbelli Evi was a dream come true. The hotel is impeccably and tastefully put together by owner Suha Ersoz who was the first to purchase and lovingly restore cave ruins and turn them into a boutique hotel for us all to enjoy the experience of staying in the incredible caves of Urgup, Cappadocia.

The hotel is set in a ridge overlooking the town and has magnificent views from the terrace overlooking the town and valley below. It's an oasis of peace and tranquility after a long day of sightseeing. We were warmly welcomed after ringing the front door bell and shown around the hotel.

There was the beautiful guest lounge/library with internet and Turkish-style lounges around the walls, a piano and dark polished wood floors, carpets and creamy Turkish lace curtains. The carved stone barrel ceilings were impressive and there were desks and coffee tables and books to enjoy. Soft classical or jazz music played around the public areas adding to the restful ambiance.

There is a free drinks room with fridges stocked with cans and bottles of water and soft drinks and beers, free tea and coffee and fruit all beautifully laid out to help yourself to. We were shown the breakfast room and terrace where our breakfast would be served the next day. It was one of the best breakfasts we'd had in Europe: fresh fruit, cereals, Turkish offerings, pastries, the best coffee I've had since Italy and a menu of eggs dishes to order. Delicious!

We were taken down to our cave room via stone steps with iron railings. There was a shared stone terrace outside with terracotta pots and plants and
inside a big cast iron bed and lamps, white crisp luxury linens, and a beautiful bathroom with marble and wood vanity and a sparkling hot clean shower!
Wooden carved trunks, desk and window were covered in simple Turkish linens woven with small beads and white terry toweling slippers embroidered with "Esbelli Evi" and above us beautiful creamy stone with caramel streaks running through it. With the
lamps on, it glowed warmly. Heaven!

Suha has extensive knowledge of the area and other areas of Turkey and personally sits down with guests at breakfast to help with recommendations and map out itineraries for those who would like some recommendations. He also recommends the best restaurants and our dinner at Ziggy's was fabulous in a stunning building.

Esbelli Evi was a magical experience in an amazing place thanks to Suha and his staff. I couldn't recommend it more highly and hope to return soon.
