........that was what we thought, and we chose Elif Star. And it was OK (you still have a balcony or window, hence not quite a real cave, but still). It was nice and quiet and "uncle" served a fantastic breakfast. What we did not like was the fact that the rooms were not cleaned during our 3-days stay (we could have asked for it though). And as the only place we saw in Goreme it was not allowed to flush the toiletpaper - the container was not emptied during our stay. It was a bit primitiv for the price. But Mustafa and "uncle" were very friendly and helpful. I'm not quite sure whether I would recommend Elif Star to others...........
