“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

It is an excellent hotel. The rooms are built within Cavas with traditional nomad decor. Near Goreme Open Museum. Your manager is a wonderful person, offers privates tours at a great price. We would definitely return.

It's a unique experience to stay in a cave hotel! Elif Star is a good choice because it's not too expensive but still comfortable. It's in a good location near the town centre and the owner is really helpful :)

The owner is very excellent! He provides us everything. Anyone who needs a day trip in Goreme, I recommence you to book and buy here. You will get super private tour and see what others did not.

This hotel is like a family business, so you will feel warm after you arrive here. The first step i were there, the owner drove a car to pick me and my friends. The hotel is not far from the city; you can walk to have lunch or dinner. The room is quite clean and it still remains an original cave.

The first day my friends and I arrived there, we booked a day trip with this hotel (I cannot remember a red or green line). It is a small group of people around 8 people including me and my friends. I really like this kind of group because it causes us have a close relationship. I can make new friends and share some experiences. Moreover, because there were few people, the owner took us to some places that do not include in the route trip. It seems like a gift! lol

How wonderfully weird to sleep in a cave room with traditional nomad decor (I.e. carpets on rough cave floor and bare rock walls)! The room is large, the bathroom spacious and everything was spotless. Pity we arrived late in the afternoon and left again early next morning as the place and the town seemed to have much hospitality to offer. Highly recommended for an authentic experience.

We stayed here 2 nights whilst in cappadocia and really had an authentic experience. The cave room was so cute and very comfortable. The breakfast was one of the best we'd had at a hotel and the family who runs it were so hospitable, even doing our laundry which was a service we couldn't find any where in Turkey!

This hotel was wonderful! Free transfer from the Kayseri airport. Organised our balloon trip and tours around goreme! The location is perfect! Central and just minutes stroll to town but out of the main drag. Staff were super friendly and included breakfast was delicious. Room was beautiful and so good to escape the heat of the day.

Would highly recommend this place!

The hotel is small - nine room hotel. The staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was good. Room was more than sufficient for our needs. Large bottled water on our arrival and lobby had inexpensive water and other snack available. We needed to refrigerate something and they were very accommodating. Short walking distance to shops and restaurants. The only issue was lack of chair in the room but when my Husband asked they offered a lobby or deck chair which was sufficient.
