    Gorgeous church with very vivid blue paintings inside. On the hill on the way up to the entrance to the Goreme open air museum. No photos allowed.

    Amazing store, kind people, and beautiful selection of carpets. I couldn’t make my mind so I got two of them! I highly recommend this store!

    We were referred by local friends to Sultan Carpets. Ali really took his time to understand our needs and presented numerous different options from his extensive stock. This together with his explanations re the symbols used, production location and tradition it almost felt like a university lecture on carpets. In the odd case you don’t find a carpet to fly home with, Sultan Carpets will talk to different producers and send pictures to find a match. From the first handshake to the product in our house via international delivery, we were in the very best hands with Ali. Anytime again.

    A couple booking for a Turkish bath and 1-hour deep tissue massage.

    Discount and welcome offer given. Emre was extremely helpful and explained all packages at depth, no language issue with him.

    First time for a Turskish bath - should have done this soon long ago!

    One of the few spas / hammams in Cappodocia that accepts kids! My kids ages 7 and 9 had a great time with the hammam treatment, including basically a layer of bubbles and afterwards a proper massage. I also had the same service and it was heavenly. The ladies did a great job and the ambience was nice and cave-y ;-) The place is small so if you will have it to yourself. My point being that if you don't want to be around or hear kids, you don't have to worry about it because they won't book more than one party at a time.

    The owner is honest and kind. He explained how to differentiate real wool carpet and man- made fake fabric in details and tested it in front of us. We believe he is very trustworthy and the products are of god quality. In the end, we bought 2 wool carpets hand-made and the owner gave me a cushion cover for free. We recommend this shop indeed :)

    Friendly driver, good price, free wifi, good AC! What more could you need? I recommend this service. I have never had wifi on a shuttle before I thought that was pretty neat. I'm glad I used this service and felt it was more comfortable and spacious than a taxi personally.

    Went here and had the best meal so far on our Istanbul/goreme trip. The food was so full of flavour, the meat so tender. Felt very authentic, the chap who runs it has been cooking for 45 years and it showed.

    Such good food in a lovely setting.

    If a carpet could fly, this is definitely where you would find one. There is something almost magical about this place, as we moved from the main showroom down to a subterranean display area, with beautiful hand woven rugs at every turn. The owner, Ruth, spent time with us explaining the history, provenance and style of various rugs; and what the patterns symbolised. We didn’t appreciate that the craft of rug making was mostly mastered by women, and that each rug tells a story of its creator. This shop is well worth a visit, and will be on our list again next time we visit Goreme.

    My wife and I visited this Spa after touring Turkey for couple of days - we were really looking forward to our 90min package and we surely were delighted. Manager Emer accommodated our request for a private time and space as well. Our masseuse Aisha and Huriyat were very professional and listened carefully to our requirements. We had a 15min Sauna followed by approx 60min thorough oil massage and finally a hamam bath. Their massage relieved all the stress in our body - and we were so fresh and relaxed from the next day. I can’t recommend enough this Spa centre as all the staff were very helpful right from pick up from hotel till the drop off…a wonderful experience overall.

    Me and my boyfriend encountered this beautiful side street shop while looking for a special something to bring home as a reminder of this beautiful trip in Türkiye. As soon as we started talking to Fatih he was more than welcoming and professional: his passion and competence shines through every word and explanation he gives and we've really felt like being at a friend's house while talking about a shared interest!
    His products are very good quality and if you have questions on the patterns, origin or age of every one of his carpets he will know the answer and satisfy your curiosity (and more, since we asked also about some carpets we have back at home!).
    This was truly a pleasant surprise and I'm sure we'll remember it with a smile every time we recall the memories of Cappadocia. I'm also sure we'll buy more carpets from him in the future, hope everyone else will too!

    We randomly walked into this store and learnt that the art pieces were hand painted by Mr Turan. Mr Turan has been creating his art for 40 years.
    We bought 3 plates for display back home.

    Definitely worth a visit to support this local business.
