I think in Goreme tourism increased too fast, much more than service level.
Melek Cave is a normal place run with a superficial mood but, fortunately for everyone, the overall context is such a fairy place that you don't usually need much to enjoy your time...
We saw the owners/managers once arrived, then no more. To tell the truth, we never looked for them, and they never crosschecked with us. Beakfast was standard, again, with the whole service table left under the rising sun, butter and jam melting together with olives cheese and tomatos (an adjoining much nicer hotel adopted the same melting approach, actually... at least we paid less!). Room was nice, in the cave, great termal insulation then, and bathroom was essential. No one entered our room to clean or tidy it, but we're not maniacs and we survived our mess!
Last day, checkout time, here they are again, the owners/managers, wishing us we've been fine and asking for a Trip Advisor review: here we go, review is served!
