We absolutely loved our trip to Goreme, and owe a lot of it to our experience at Saksagan. The location is great. Very close to "downtown" and you can easily walk to all kinds of restaurants, cafés and shop, as well as the bus station. It has a beautiful courtyard to eat breakfast during the warmer months, or just sit around and drink a tea.
Numan, the owner, was fantastic. He went over everything we could do in the area, booked our balloon ride and tours, and arranged our airport transfers. He personally drove us up to the top of a hill to start a hike, and even ordered cake when he found out it was my husband's birthday! The other man working at reception (whose name I forget) was incredible, always welcoming us back every night, serving our breakfast, helping out with everything, waking up at 4 am to make sure we made our airport transfer.
The rooms were a little tattered, but that's hardly worth mentioning since Numan told us he has plans for renovations this winter. We stayed in a cave room, and were only able to get wi-fi in the lobby. I'm not sure if this was because of the thick stone walls, or if none of the rooms get wifi.
We would stay there again, and I am recommending it to my parents who are planning a trip to Cappadocia soon.
