My boyfriend and I are headed to Cappadocia for 3 days in July and are having a hard time deciding on a place to stay. We would like to keep it under $200/night. Generally, we prefer small, luxury-minded hotels, inns or B&Bs. As it will be hot, I think AC might be important (although I have read that the cave rooms stay cool, but even in really hot conditions?). I would love a place that has a beautiful terrace for breakfast and evening drinks (private would be amazing), and/or a pool if the afternoons are too hot to hike. Also, not sure if one town is better than another? I've read Goreme is touristy?
Finally, do we have to rent a car? We were thinking scooters... Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
