“We loved everything about the permisali hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

Everything about the hotel was exquisite...It is a cave hotel, so be prepared for some rooms to have no windows...The details in lighting, bathroom fixtures, plants,terrace view were all lovely. For anyone who likes a quiet authentic village experience the Permisali hotel is wonderful. The breakfast was beautiful-figs, feta, olives etc. Fatma, who attended us was kind, helpful and attentive. We loved our stay in Cappadochia.

Our three night stay at the Perimasali Cave Hotel was an experience of a life time. We had the Galateia Superior Suite and our two sons shared the Harmonia. The Galateia room is a work of art. The pictures do not do it justice. It is fabulously furnished with real art in alcoves within the walls -- all beautifully lighted. The Suite has a substantial living room and beautiful bath as well. It is a suite that will delight couples of all ages. Our sons' room was not big, but still beautifully decorated -- as was the entire hotel.

Breakfast is more than ample with all sorts of local fresh and dried fruits, nuts, yogurt, breads, preserves, and eggs of your choosing. Breakfast is served on a lovely terrace that has views of the valley one could stare at for hours.

Salih and Fatoş were very friendly and helpful. We followed their recommendations and had excellent experiences, such as a hot air balloon ride above the fantastic terrain, visits to the caves and underground cities, a long hike in a hidden, but lovely gorge (with additional church caves to see), and evenings eating outdoors at excellent Turkish restaurants. They gladly made reservations for us and even taught us some Turkish. We even received a photo of our family once we returned from Fatoş.

Our only regret is that we did not stay at least one more day to enjoy the hotel and the area. We highly recommend you stay at Perimasali Cave Hotel when you visit Cappadocia. You cannot get better service and accommodations-- Perimasali Cave Hotel is the best of the best.

The rooms are clean, the service is average , however there are lots of alternatives for the same price, which have good location, better service, parking availbilty. It's not bad, but not a good value for money.

My trusted travel agency was determined to make a name for itself. I had previously read about cave hotels in Cappadocia but, while attempting to work a trip on my own I had shied away from what appeared to be luxury at luxury-cost for a Turkey first timer.

Lo and behold, my customized trip included three nights at Perimasali Cave Hotel. The modest cost included a simple, yet lavish breakfast. Fresh almonds, Turkish coffee, fresh fruit, home-baked bread, figs, eggs cooked to order. No steak because its Turkish style . Couple of things that stood out about the breakfast experience was the rich view of Urgup/Nevsehir, a former Greek abode studded with caves and well maintained, centuries old buildings. Another striking feature was the personal attention lavished on guests during the meal. Staff was attentive without perceptible hint of presence.

I am a smoker. I would step out of my room on to one of several multi-level bays along the steps down. No sooner had I parked that one of the staff ran out (literally) bringing me a fancy cushion to insulate my posterior from the stone ledge. Now this is service!

The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable, with modern amenities. This place must have been just built. All appurtenances appeared to have been installed recently.
Tasteful décor to exceed that of the best of Hiltons. Yes, I have experienced some of the best in the world both, during travel with the US Navy as well as during travel as recreation. For some unexplained reason these three nights happened to be the most restful of my entire fifteen days in Turkey. But, we’d get up in time for breakfast!

This property currently offers seven units. Plans are underway to expand the facility to twenty-two units per my understanding. Saleh, the proprietor, entertains challenging visions into the future. We chatted at length. I do not understand when he dreams it all up. We found him awake and available at all odd hours of the night. He just seemed to be there, always there in his one room, first-floor office, available and willing to help. First night we were in a quandary as to where we would eat. He left his one-room mansion and walked us to a restaurant around the corner. No comment about the excellent fare at this restaurant since this review is focused on our hotel. Next evening we forgot our way to this restaurant. Sure, there’s Saleh walking us over to the restaurant again. I felt silly but felt assured that Saleh, being busy, would forget us in a few days.

The town hosting this hotel is relaxing, quaint, unadulterated by modern twists, mountainous with gentle slopes; a pleasure to walk in. The Cave Hotel itself is a step back into history; its ambience accentuated by a subtle resonance of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Andrew Lloyd Webber (Phanton of the Opera).

Some photos included in this review depict the hotel in a cluttered location - caused by the prosumer camera lens utilized. Commercial Real Estate photographers use specialized lenses beuond my reach. However, once inside the walls, the property is as picturesque as its surroundings. A visit to Cappadocia is incomplete without a night at a real Cave Hotel.

My girlfriend and I stayed there three nights recently and we loved it.
Though the mustafapasa village is a bit far from the beaten path, it turned out to be a quite charming place.

The Galateia suite was very spacious and romantic (see pictures attached) and it was indeed nice to have a jacuzzi. Great atmosphere overall.

The service was very kind (thanks Salih and the rest of the staff) and helpful. A good breakfast was served in the morning.

The only drawback is the speaker not far from the hotel that allows you to be awaken by the muezin for the prayer at 4 AM but that's the case pretty much everywhere in Turkey.

Our three-day, self-planned trip to Cappodocia would have been difficult without the help of hotel owner Salih Birbilen. I emailed that we had only one planned item, a balloon trip, and asked his advice on other things to see.

He arranged our pickup (a 45-minute drive from Kayseri Airport), coordinated pickup with Royal Balloons, scheduled us for an all-day tour, then found a driver for us when we told him we wanted to see the Hidden City of Kaymakli. All was planned in detail, and when Turkish Airlines changed our flight time, he helped us through the Turkish phone system. For all pickups at the hotel, a staff member came out and saw that we were taken care of with the drivers, and even for the 5 a.m. balloon pickup, Birbilen himself got up to assure that our pickup arrived as scheduled. Such wonderful sights and care made this stay the highlight of our trip to Turkey.

We decided to stay in Mustafapasa, formerly the Greek town of Sinasos, based on photos of the hotel and Trip Advisor comments. Mustafapasa was a quieter alternative to the larger and more touristy Urgup and Goreme, but close enough to get picked up for tours. The town is small, with restaurants, small groceries, a few shops, and post office to change money, all only a few minutes walk from the hotel.

The Perimasali Cave Hotel is a sculptural work of art, the vision of Salih Birbilen, who transformed a crumbling mansion built into the tufa rock, into a cave hotel.

Our suite, the Daphne, included carved, arched walls and relief carvings of a semi-nude woman and a man (perhaps Daphne and the god who pursued her). The suite had a jacuzzi, and the bathroom a tile and stone shower. Everything is modern.

The bed was very comfortable, mattress on a stone base. The velvet divan was luxurious, comfortable, and decorated with pillows. Two chairs and small table were at the fireplace, a desk and refrigerator in the entry foyer. The cave room was well-insulated.

The modernized features included LED lighting throughout, which cast a soft blue glow and also was a nighttime safety feature.

Breakfast on the terrace included dried fruit and nuts, olives, cheeses, bread, delicious yoghurt, choice of coffee or tea, jams, honey and on some days, eggs cooked to order. The hotel has a number of terraces that overlook Mustafapasa, as well as a small breakfast room in case of bad weather. Eventually, the hotel will include a restaurant and more rooms.

It was extraordinary to visit the wonders of Cappodocia, then return for the night to a work of art, as well as be taken care of from start to finish by this amazing and attentive staff.
