“The modern Stone Age place to be”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We had a great time at Flinstones! Beautiful, quiet, clean and with a great location. Mehmet, the manager of Flinstones Cave Hotel was super friendly and helped us with all our questions. The pool area was great, the breakfast was delicious and room was pretty interesting. It's quite an experience to stay for 6 night in cave-like room! We loved it!

Impressive rooms/caves, eco-friendly (solar panels heating water) place, nice lunch, the staff is very friendly and will help you to get around without a problem, great location, the showers are comfortable to use, the pool was clean, English spoken (after some days in other places of Turkey this is a very important plus) save parking lot. The only "- " is that some caves may use better lighting.

The Flintstones is like an oasis surrounded by spectacular geography. Your hosts Mehmet and Mehmet Ali make you feel most welcome and are always there to answer your questions and make things easy for you. The fact that you get to sleep in a (large) room that looks like a cave is quite a kick (though for some reason, probably due to sewer reflux, the bathroom does smell pretty bad at times). The place is so quiet and relaxing, you can almost imagine you're at some tropical resort. The free breakfast is OK but not great, though, and they actually charge you for juice. But then Turkey is so inexpensive... The pool is a decent size, and relatively cool (Cappadocia is an elevated region, so evenings can get cool even in the summer). You can easily walk to the village, and Mehmet will be there to help you book a tour of the region - an absolute must.

The best hotel I have stayed in during my entire trip in Turkey! The room is clean and big with a unique local design ---- CAVE! The bathroom is comfortable to use, it is almost as big as the bedroom! Great services! The staffs are very friendly, they picked us up from the bus station with their car, also send us back to there when we are leaving. They speak good English so easy to communicate, and helped us to book the hot air balloon, hamam, and the local tour, with a good price and a little discount. The breakfast is very rich and great taste! You get a great view from the hotel itself, and it got a nice area of swimming pool and dinning place. In addition, before we left to get on overnight bus, they offered us to use the bathroom with their towel for free! :D

Room Tip: Maybe less moist in the second floor.

I booked this hotel for one night only and ended up staying for three but had to stay in two different rooms. I was also with friends so I was able to investigate three rooms and ALL of them were different but great. So clean, nice bathrooms, quiet (but I guess everything is in a cave), convenient. The staff was always at hand and helpful and friendly; the organized trail hikes are well worth it; don't pass on the hot air balloon ride. The breakfast spread was phenomenal. The pool was oh so nice. The price for the room could not be beat. I'd go back to Turkey just to hang out at this hotel and in this incredible corner of the world.....magical to say the least.
