Hi there, Goreme is smaller than Urgup and feels more like a village, it has plenty of decent restaurants and places to stay, it is also within walking distance of a lot of the valleys and the open air museum. Urgup on the other hand is more of a town, it is not as beautiful as Goreme, the public transport from there is better but its not as easy to walk to some of the valleys. It doesn't matter where you stay for the hot air balloons as the balloon companies come and collect you from your hotels. I cant imagine staying anywhere other than Goreme, I love everything about this unique beautiful village.
enjoy your time in cappadoccia
Thanks for the feedback. I hadn't seen the other post. It's Goreme for us based on responses to this post and the other one you referenced.
Right choice - in my opinion!!
