Reviewed August 16, 2013

There were many little disappointments that did not make our stay at Ufuk so pleasant. First, there was a horrible smell that came from the toilet. The staff was kind enough to find us a new room, but still there was some unpleasant smells there too. The rooms are average, pretty small without any cachet. Finally we had some trouble with the price. The owner sent us the price for most of his activities, but once we got there everything was more expensive. We don't believe that people should not go to this hotel, but we were not completly satisfied.

Stayed here for three nights and it was very pleasant. The hotel is right in town and close to the rose and red valley as well as the goreme open air museum.

The owner was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean but quite small. The bathroom was miniature. The cost was not that cheap compared to other spots in Turkey.

Great wifi in public areas and there were really good lounging areas to relax in.

We stayed here with our family (with children) for 3 nights. The hosts (Faith) was amazing. He welcomed us warmly to the hotel with some nice tea and coffee. The room was great, clean and spacious. The surroundings at the hotel warm, very welcoming with lots of space to hang out and relax. They offered free breakfast, which was very nice. They also provided us with lots of great advice and helped us rent a car. From here, it was an easy walk to the Open Air Museum and to several hikes (Rose Valley, Love Valley, and Honey Valley). Goreme is a nice town to stay in, the natural beauty is stunning. You'll feel like family at this hostel. Definitely take some time to chat with the welcomong hosts. It's worth your time and a great way to connect with local people.

This is a very basic hotel at an excellent price. Its location is wonderful. Fatih also has a way to make you feel cared for, so I really did feel at home while I was there. There is nothing more bautiful than having breakfasts wiht the hot air balloons flying overhead.

Simple, humble but great little hostel. Faith is a brilliant host. He is always there to answer questions and offer local tips for pretty much anything the area has to offer. For the money you're not going to find anywhere better in the area.

Ufuk Pension is the place to stay in Goreme.
Nice, clean, confortable and cheap place with relaxing common area and terrasse.
Good location on the way of Goreme open Air Museum and the road to Avanos and Urgup.
And principally you could enjoy the kindness and good advices of Fatih who will ease as much as possible your stay in the area.

Overall our stay at Ufuk was great. Faith and Orhan gave us lots of good advice and general information. The pension was clean and quiet. They have a nice lounge area that is good on chilly nights. The heat was not on since it was late spring so some of the evenings were chilly, but there were lots of blankets so it was no problem.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor to watch the early morning balloons float by your balcony.
