It is our second visit to Goreme and Kemal's guest house was a safe choice for us as i chose it at my first visit as well. We stayed in this family run hotel for two days, the attitude of the hotel owners was amazing. They are not pushy for any extra sales such as tours, balloons etc. They give... More

Kemal and Emin are very helpful and they were very kind to us. Plus their place is really one of the most authentic places to stay in the region. The "Rock" that is inside the reception is beyond almost anywhere for the night out as well

Kemal and Barbara run a great place. Location is excellent - just 2 minutes from the center of Goreme. Between them they speak probably 7 languages and make an effort with several more - I heard Kemal speaking some Italian which was appreciated by the guests. The dinner is highly recommended as is the fab breakfast. Where else do you... More

The place is pleasant. Nice people (Barbara and Kemal), helpful and ready to plan your activities if you want to. Good food (typical Turkish breakfast) and great dinner (but that is an extra). The cave room is obviously quite cold and damp, but it can be a nice feeling after a hot day spent trekking and visiting.

The location is excellent, not in the busy center but at the border about 2 minutes walking to the center. The staff is super, the room fine and brand New! Bathroom large and the breakfast in the morning in the garden is splendid!
