“Two different properties with the same name!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Just need to be wary of this TripAdvisor review page; as mentioned in a previous review there is also a B & B property under the same name (and management perhaps?) which seems to receive the majority of the glowing reviews.

The property seen in the photo is in fact the Dream Cave Hotel and we stayed a group of 5 traveller's in their dorm room.

While the price was right, there are many many other better options in Goreme. We had another friend stay at Shoestring, and I'd definitely recommend that over Dream Cave. First off there was no hot water for the entire duration of our stay. Being traveller's that's not always a big deal but the water was freezing cold, it made showering an adventure and by the third day you'd like to at least temper the water a bit!

Secondly we never had any WiFi for the 3 days, even though that was also said to be available. We suspect that they may not have paid all their bills or just sold the property. As the younger man that was originally there (sort of) to show us to the rooms wasn't there after the first day. The "new" owners didn't speak English at all and we were often left to fend for ourselves or get by with my broken Turkish. Not the end of the world, but just want to make sure that there isn't any confusion based on the reviews found here. We stayed in the dorm on the back of the hotel, so not in the cave rooms, looking into them they seem to be in a bit better shape and certainly serviceable.

If they had water, WiFi and a staff that was there it would probably be an all right place to stay. However, I stress again that for the same price there are much better options in Goreme. The location is fine, but again the other options are just as good.

Just stayed here last week.
Only a basic room but clean and very central, easy to locate.
Great breakfast. Very nice staff. We didn't book any tour with this hotel but the staff was kind enough to let us use his cell phone to call my agency to confirm my tour. By the way, highly recommend Serap at Reliable Travel Agency (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g297988-d1913847-Reviews-Reliable_Travel_Turkey_and_Cappadocia_Tours-Uchisar_Cappadocia.html) who made wonderful tour arrangement for us.
And last but not least, Dream Cave Hotel allowed us to use the bathroom and toilet of the dorm after we checked out. Good place to stay in Goreme in general.

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 3 boys (ages 8, 4 and 4) and found it lacking. Let me start by saying that this place could be great, but a whole bunch of small events conspired to make our stay not very good. Our first night was fine and at 80 TL for all of us, we thought we found a gem. Upon arival in Goreme we called for a pickup from the bus station and a few minutes later were met by the staff, who appeared very friendly. Our triple room was adequate - a decent size and of average cleanliness. The furnishings were rather spartan, but we're used to that after 10 months of travelling in hostels. The breakfast was the usual turkish fare, which is good, but the service was not great. Our host was too busy gaming (playing Wolf Team online) to give us service. If you wanted a second cup of tea or coffee, you had to go down to reception and ask him. I just started serving myself from their kitchen, as that was easier. The next day the hotel had no water. When I asked about it, the host said the whole town had the same problem, which was not true. He also asked all the guests to pay their bills in advance, right away. That evening the water returned but there was no hot water. The next morning, there was again no water and no staff to serve breakfast. As there were about 7 people waiting for breakfast, I went into the kitchen and finished getting the breakfasts assembled and then served everyone. When the host arrived, he said he had gone into town to pay the water bill, so now there would be water. This was June 1. Also on that day, the wifi stopped working. When I inquired about it, he said it would not be coming on. Maybe they didn't pay the internet provider? That night and the next day there was again no hot water and no wifi.

I am not sure if they are having a cash flow problem, but if all those little things were worked out I would definely rate the hotel higher. As it was for us, I would not recommend staying there.

The Dream Cave Hotel has added a new property call the Dream Cave Suites just a few meters down the road. They're very comfortable with luxurious bathrooms and excellent service. There're so new that they have not yet worked out some glitches such as making sure there is soap and cups in the bathroom, but once these minor details are worked out the place will be an exceptional value.

We have been backpacking around the world and we have slept in cheap rooms and dorms everywhere, and Turkey is not a cheap country, so accommodation is also not very cheap.
Still is easy to find budget options and in Goreme we think we found the best one.
We stayed on a dorm which had only six beds, which I think is the perfect number not to overcrowd the place. The beds and sheets where amanzingly clean and comfy, in a gorgeous cave-like dorm which in spite of the cold weather (there was snow outside) was always warm and pleasant.
The shared toilette was very clean and the shower was spectacular! As we've been traveling for quite a while we always compare this kind of things from different hostels, and the shower from this one should definitely win some kind of award! Good water pressure and fabulous temperature, specially for cold weather during winter.
Breakfast was included in the convenient rate and was delicious and big enough to keep you going till the evening.
This is a budget hotel, and for this kind of hotels it is definitely one of our favorites.
It also has a nice terrace (very nice view) with tables to chill out after a nice day touring around this beautyful region.

I stayed here for 3 nights. The cave room was clean but chilly at night. I had to sleep in my long john's to stay warm. It was on the opposite side of town which was nice so you don't have to walk up a huge hill. They had great rates on tours. I definitely reccommend the green tour.

Stayed here and while it wasn't too bad, me and another lady had a significant ammount of money stolen from our locked room. Incredibly suspicious behavior on the part of one staff member led us to conclude that he had stolen the money. There was no one else staying there at the time. BEWARE!!!
