Having this hotel included in our "Euphrates Tour" of Cappadocia was such luck. A beautiful boutique hotel with loverly grounds and pool, however the rooms are the real gem. Ours was massive, beautifully appointed and superbly clean with everything you could want including two bathrooms, an entry foyer, a very comfy king bed, settee and fire place.

A wonderful hotel with excellent staff and amazing hospitality. Their boutique arrangement along with the breathtaking cave rooms are one of a kind. The hotel location provides a peaceful and serene atmosphere. Their courtyard garden provides a feeling of home away from home. Definitely recommended!

The owners of Gamirasu Cave Hotel want to put something back into the community and the luxury cave hotel places great emphasis on (slow) cooking with local, organic produce, recycling rubbish and employing locals. Some parts of the hotel were used by Christian priests until one thousand years ago. It is the only hotel in the Cappadocia region, which contains... More

Food is second to none and we come from the food capital, Melbourne. Such a homely feel, the caves are surreal and it's worth the cash. The people are very very kind and the flavor f the food is fantastic. We strongly recommend this hotel!! Also the hot air ballooning is a necessity!!!!!!!

Gamirasu is the name of an exquisitely restored 35 rooms troglodyte cave house opened in 1998, in Ayvali Village near Urgup in the heart of Cappadocia, Turkey. The hotel is located in a restored thousand-year-old Byzantine monastic retreat which offers modern conveniences without distracting from the spiritual feeling of the area which has been known to be inhabited for more than five thousand years.

Recently Business Insider choose '' 50 incredible hotels you should sleep in during your lifetime '' It is also mentioned as a romantic escape for honeymoons in wedding magazines. A 12th century Byzantine Christian church forms part of the Gamirasu, and until recently, part of the hotel was still used by Christian monks. Much care has been taken to blend the historic facades with the natural curves of the Cappadocian landscape to preserve its traditional style and appearance whilst providing you with the utmost in modern conveniences. The finish is stylish and the atmosphere inviting and romantic. Indeed, it is the perfect honeymoon destination, with many couples choosing the intimate cave suites for access to some of the most breathtaking and unforgettable scenery in the world. The sense of tranquility and authentic village atmosphere around the Gamirasu is instantly soothing, with nothing to disturb you but the sound of birds and sumptuous aromas drifting across the warm air from the old Monastic kitchen. Breakfast consists of all local and organically grown produce, including freshly baked bread, clotted cream, honeycomb and fresh fruit. A 7km hiking trail departs from the front door of the hotel and follows a remote valley with a beautiful brook flowing down the middle.

It really is the most mesmerizing of destinations. ... more   less
