I am sitting here in the enclosed terrace as I write of the Aydinli Cave Hotel with a magnificent view of the town and various fairy chimneys. It truly is enchanting and breathtaking.
I can also say that I have redeemed myself with my bride of 32 yrs given my online booking of a shabby hotel in Ankara on Saturday night past.
We have a beautiful big suite with a north american style bathroom second to none in this very roomy cave hotel. The hair dryer provided was a delight for my wife since it did not overheat as so many others have in various hotels we stayed in .
This room was the very room where the owner Mustafa was brought up in and whose father had chiseled out way back when.
Just as Ledyukon pointed out in her post, we had been driven to the Open Air museum and could have been picked up had we chosen to be as well with no compensation whatsoever.
Mustafa is really a great guy to speak with at breakfast and is a history buff. He and his son Cem are great hosts and are always willing to be of assistance.
And before I forget, you can come up anytime to the enclosed patio area and root around in the fridge and make yourself a sandwich, cup of coffee or tea, or munch on fruit that is always available. Just like being home.
This has been the most magical hotel we have stayed at in all our travels.
Thanks for rescuing my marriage Ledyukon. :-)
