“Beautiful and eclectic”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Beautiful and traditional building, once containing 15 turkish dwelling, its winding staircases now decorated with an eclectic collection of old radios, keys, carpets, religious icons and a courtyard filled with flowers. Charming hotel up the hill in Avanos. Wonderful breakfasts served in the courtyard. Enormous room (double bed and two singles, with a separate sitting room and bathroom. No lift, and some rooms are up a lot of steps, so if stairs are a problem, ask for a lower room.

I am very impressed this hotel decoration. The owner of the hotel is an artist. His drawing is very attractive. You can ask him for his postcard. The whole hotel is like a gallery. The hotel layout is very interesting and unique. The hotel is large and but is spread out. Everything is very clean. The staff is very friendly. You may ask for local wine tasting for free. The breakfast is super. It has so many choices. The location is right at the edge of old and center of the town. I had very pleasant stay.

Hotel Sofa, partially built into a series of caves and eclectically furnished and decorated is an absolute delight. Breakfast in the morning can be taken either inside a small room complete with wood burning fireplace....to chase away the early morning chill......or outside in the garden patio. The hotel does have Wi-Fi however we found it necessary to sit outside our room on a small terrace in order to access it.....hardly a problem however. The main shopping area in the village of Avenos is an easy stroll and there's a very nice restaurant right next door.

Once in a lifetime you visit a hotel like sofa hotel. This is the most beautiful and unique hotel I have ever visited. It is filled with one off pieces. The room was unique, however had a very musky smell to the room as it was in a cave. That was the only downside to the room. I enjoyed the breakfast.

We had a a fabulous experience at Sofa where we stayed in the Kars room for 4 nights. The wonderful building and furnishings, the great breakfast, the hospitality of the owners and the perfect service made our stay there unforgettable. The hotel is unique and with all the modern comforts. The town is quaint, relaxed and a lovely place to use as a base for exploring Capadoccia.
Thanks so much to Hoca and the rest of the Sofa team, I hope to return someday!

Room Tip: We loved the Kars room

We stayed at Sofa as part of a hiking package arranged by Inntravel. Our stay was brief but very enjoyable, and the town is quite interesting, particularly given its history as a source for the clay used for millennia in its pottery. Breakfast was good, and we were only sorry we couldn't hang around long enough to explore further.
