Sofa Hotel with an ancient world feels while still being in touch with today. The suites are so marvelously decorated with each suite having its own style which all about part of the Cappadocia, such as Göreme ,Avanos ,Paşabağı...etc. The Sofa is extremely comfortable and has been restored to a high standard by its perfect owners.I say that If you want to live in traditional Turkish culture and society ,should visit The Sofa.In addition, hotel was restored due to the culture and cappadocians history.Please visit and discover the mystic atmosphere. Cappadocia should be visited part of Turkey ( especially for the hot air balloon ride over the fairy chimneys) and this hotel is the perfect place to stay to get the real feel of Cappadocia! Please dont forget this words; comfortable,clean,well service and cheerful crew.The Sofa Hotel and Cappadocia are waiting for your happiness

Cavernous and unique hotel. All rooms are different. Getting to my room was like the Winchester Mystery House in that there was staircase after staircase and I wasn't quite sure where they would lead me. There's no lift at this hotel. The room was okay - while it was charming with the different rugs, I did find a patch of concrete on the floor where the rugs did not meet. This was the only 3-star hotel I stayed at in Turkey that provided a full-sized top sheet on the bed, (I stayed at 4 different hotels in different cities.) Breakfast buffet was very good, as was the wifi in the lobby and courtyard.

If you want to stay in a small hotel that has lots of personality and is completely unconventional... pick this one! The decor is completely local, with tons of hand woven rugs, pottery (which Avanos is famous for) and bric-a-brac filling every nook and cranny. My room was extremely quaint. It was on a top floor, and there was no a/c, so it was a little hot during the day, but it cooled down nicely at night... and the view from the little terrace outside my front door was fantastic. As other reviews state... it was a maze-like adventure up and down stairs, around hallways and through caves just to get to the room, but there was so much to look at along the way, that the walk from the room to the lobby (and breakfast garden) was totally enjoyable... even when I took a wrong turn.

My single room was very quaint and homey. The bathroom was modern, and everything was clean and worked very well. The bathroom a stand-up shower with no tub, which was fine with me, and was very roomy. Of the 5 hotels we stayed in, this was the only one that provided free bottled water. There was no phone in the room, so there was no way to request a wake-up call. There was free wi fi in the lobby area that worked very well. There were a couple different rooms in the lobby, plus a Turkish style librarly/game room/den half a floor above the lobby.

The breakfast buffet was the best one in any of the places we stayed, with a great variety of fresh and dried fruits, and more variations of pastries, cheeses and meats than at the other hotels. Many of the dishes appeared to be homemade, or made in a local nearby bakery. The outdoor breakfast garden courtyard was absolutely charming.

A couple of people in our group had problems with the staff, and I personally witnessed one staff member being unfriendly, but I had no problems myself. They forgot to leave towels one day, and it was quite a long walk down to the lobby (no phone in the room) to request towels... but they took them to the room right away.

Overall, the unique personality of the buildings and decor made this one of my most memorable hotel stays ever.

Room Tip: The rooms have names rather than numbers. "Japan" was a very nice single on a floor up hi...
