“Great Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We had a fantastic time at the Kayakapi! The hotel check in and check out was flawless and the staff were super friendly. Our room was right off the main check in point, and it was huge! Everything was nice and clean with large amounts of storage. There were well appointed toiletries and the rain shower was fantastic. The Kayakapi definitely think of the little things when you are a guest including fresh fruit on arrival, a nespresso machine in the room, and nice little gift for when you leave. The bed was a little hard, and when we were told there was no air conditioning in the room and the temp was reaching 26 degrees celsius, the staff gave us a portable fan immediately. Decent breakfast. Only a 5 min drive into Urgup, but walking would be difficult. Overall this is a great place to stay!

Had an excellent stay in the hotel. The rooms were in great condition, and I couldn't have asked for a better service.

1. When I wrote to the guest service to let them know of a special occasion, Elvan and her staff did their best to make our stay memorable.
2. The restaurant staffs (Ruzgar, Ilyas, Ali) were fantastic. They made sure we had a great time there, and I was very grateful.

If you are ever planning to visit Cappadocia, there's no need to hesitate. Kayakapi is the place to go.

My fiancé and I had the most wonderful experience at Kayakapi. It is truly a luxury hotel, but set so wonderfully in the historic caves. They do a wonderful job of mixing luxury with history, and I cannot even imagine how incredible the hotel will be once the spa, pool, and fitness center are completed. We only stayed for one night, but it was a wonderful night! The small touches were lovely...welcome grape juice waiting when we arrived, a Nespresso maker in the room, great shower/bath products, and a going away gift when we left. The individuals working in the office (forgive me I forget their names) are truly some of the nicest, most friendly, and most helpful people we encountered during our time in Turkey. They even gave us a tour of the property, including the area under construction, in their new golf cart! The staff really made our trip special.

The room itself was gorgeous and spacious, but it was HOT for us to sleep. 26 degrees Celcius (about 79 degrees Fahrenheit). They brought us a fan, but there is no A/C (the cave rooms usually don't need it, apparently) so we were just really uncomfortable while we slept. The beds and pillows were also uncomfortable in our opinion.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend the Kayakapi hotel to anyone considering a trip to Cappadocia.

Dear Erica;

First of all thank you very much for your review.

I am very happy that you have enjoyed your stay at Kayakapi Premium Caves - Cappadocia.

Regarding the "overheat" issue, as you know in all of our rooms we have an individually controlled heat controller. Either there was a technical fault with the controller or some other issue. I am very sorry for this :( But I have already told my technical staff to solve the issue asap, thank you for pointing out this problem.

Hope to see you in Kayakapi :)

We stayed here for 3 days in March 2014 and absolutely loved the place.

Considering the large number of Hotel options in Cappadocia, we decided to go with Tripadvisors number 1 Hotel and we were not disappointed at all. It is hard for anyone to live up to high expectations but Kayakapi Premium Caves far exceeds any expectations.

The first thing that stands out is their efficiency and hospitality - I must have exchanged more than 10 emails with their reservations/guest relations team before booking. Inquiring about a range of things from location, transfers, itineraries, suggestions, guide hire, hot air ballon bookings, etc. Their guest relations, especially, Ms. Elvan Kismet was absolutely amazing, she was efficient, warm, and responded to all queries promptly.

The place itself is superb, the room we stayed in was brilliant (105) and the whole property is massive and perched on a hill with beautiful views. From one side of the restaurant one could see the snow capped mountain top - a happy view while having coffee on the restaurant terrace.

The service continued to be exceptional all around, from the restaurant staff (Mr. Rozgar) to the guest relations to every one who works there. We decided on using their sister company - Royal Balloons for the Hotair balloon ride as well as their sister travel company for a private guided tour of the region. I would highly recommend the sister companies as they uphold the same level of professionalism, efficiency and warmth.

The Dinler family owns the place and it was great to see members of the family actually involved in the day to day functioning and add a personal touch to the entire process.

Overall - I highly recommend the Kayakapi Premium Caves and the sister companies.

Dear Madhvi;

Thank you for your review. Your review really made our day :)

I am very glad about your nice words about our staff, your room (105 - Çerkez Mehmet Evi) which is a Majestic Cave Suite with Private Turkish Bath :) I will also send your regards to Royal Balloon - Cappadocia but I personally think that they will be happy if they also get a review from you.

Once again thank your for your review and hope to see you soon in Cappadocia and Kayakapi with our new facilities.

We had the privilege of staying at Kayakapi Premium Caves for three nights late in March 2014 while visiting the truly fantastic (true meaning of the word) regions of Cappadocia and beyond.
Owner Mustafa Dinler and family welcomed us personally to this magnificent ongoing project above the town of Urgup.
The winding road up from the highway promised something special and overdelivered in spades.
The caves, converted to warm, romantic, clean habitable status retain their unique rock-hewn character while providing world-class accommodation with gorgeous views up and down from the private terraces and patios.
The reception and dining room staff were truly welcoming, most helpful with reservations, taxis etc.
The included Turkish breakfasts were a delight. Kudos to the talented kitchen staff.
To mark the birthday of my wife during our visit, a surprise (delicious!!) birthday cake was prepared and served up to share with both guests and staff alike, making for a genuinely warm and memorable evening while the temperature outside hovered at -10C.
We recommend Kayakapi Premium Caves without reservation for trekkers, couples and families alike. World class and getting better!

Room Tip: Each suite is unique and beyond reproach. We stayed in suite 115 with a magnificent view, a large te...

We loved our three days at this hotel with it's diversity of cave rooms located on a winding hill road on an outcrop of rock overlooking the town of Urgup. The rooms were wonderful, each one unique, spacious and very clean and comfortable with secluded outdoor patios. The first evening we climbed the hill behind and watched the sun set over the valley - beautiful! The staff were genuinely welcoming and helpful and the food at the restaurant was very good. It was a great location from which to explore all the sights of Cappadocia. Highly recommended.

Situated on an elevated landcrop, the Kayakapi Premium Caves are perfect for that touch of luxury in a secluded environment yet being close enough to enjoy the lovely restaurants and night life just a few minutes drive away. The Hotel was warm and inviting and the staff are genuinely there to make your stay comfortable. The views are just so special, and the individual cave homes converted into your own Villa style accommodation gave the feeling of how the folk lived in Cappadocia years ago.....but with a touch of luxury at every step! Highly recommended. We would unquestionably go back to stay at Kayakapi if we ever went back to C'doccia.
