I have to admit that I am biased in this review, because I was completely spoiled by Mustafa (the owner) and everyone at Aydinli Cave during my stay there!
With 30 years experience in managing luxury hotels, Mustafa certainly masters in the art of attending guests’ needs, be it couples on honeymoon, backpackers on budget, families with kids, or female tavellers. Nonetheless, for him and his team, Aydinli is not a hoteling business but passion in receiving guests in their home.
Their number 1 goal is to make sure guests enjoy their stay here and are well looked after like one of their own. They indulge the guests with inexhaustible Turkish tea (and, if you are sensitive to caffeine as I am, Adacayi - sage tea, is also on the table!), their wealth of knowledge of Cappadocia, and impartial advice on travelling/eating options. And the breakfast! Cheese and jam is homemade by Mustafa's wife; gozleme (Turkish pancake) and varieties of eggs are made on demand. Each room is unique and has its own story; Mustafa would tell you tirelessly about them over glasses of Turkish tea. The terrace outside the breakfast room is the best spot to have an overview of Goreme in the morning and to look at stars at night.
If you don't care for the story of each room, organic food or even stars, it'd be a true joy just to sit in the lounge (or the living room as I called it), seeing their relatives/friends stop by and have a glass of Turkish tea, listening to the teasing, palyful bickering among themselves or smelling home cooking from the kitchen next door, while browsing on Internet or reading. Yes, you've got it: to experience the Turkish village home life. What else can I say? It's just simply the best, Aydinli Cave!
