“Good location”
Reviewed May 23, 2011

We stayed in the suites that came with 2 double beds. It was nicely decorated with carpets and ornaments. Two areas did not meet up to our expectations- one was the breakfast and the other was the cleanliness of our rooms. Either the owner wanted the place to resemble a real cave or the furnitures were due for a good cleaning. If you have difficulty climbing up 3 flights of stairs, do consider staying somewhere else.

We stayed here two nights in September 2010. We were looking for a cave hotel in Goreme to take expirence of living as ancient people in this location but all cave hotel were so expensive - more than 75 euro for double, and most of them were full. We saw Lalezar Hotel by chance. There were free room for reasonable price - only 50 euro for double with breakfast. The staff is so friendly and helpful! They gave us full map of Cappadocia with the walking routs and told about all atractions. It was wonderful expirience to live in this hotel. Breakfast is good, rooms is large with big and comfortable cave bed, the hotel is in the heart of Goreme. I recommend this hotel everybody and we will stay here again next time!

A +++ all the way around -
Cozy rooms, inviting open areas, tea all day long. Located a stroll away from the charming main street, with zero pressure shops, restaurants, shops, cafes and restaurants. Wish I could have stayed a few more days! The staff plays a mean game of darts too! ; )

Lalezar Cave hotel is just a 10 minutes s stroll ( with luggage ) from the Goreme Town Center .( where the bus drops off ) .But it is a steep climb up and can be challenging for some . The hotel is nested into the base of a fairy chimney and appears pretty from the outside .
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful , but there were a few things going against the hotel .
1. The breakfast was just average .
2. The linen on the bed seemed to be dirty and not changed since the previous occupants . However it was changed promptly when we informed them .
3. The Heating was turned on , but just at minimum and we complained 4 times thru the night that our room is too cold , but it was of no avail and the heat was not turned up .
This was a major issue with us .
4. The hotel has Wi-Fi , but the signal is not strong enough to reach the rooms and internet has to be done sitting in the sitting room of the hotel .
5. The hotel has no lifts
6. Our room had no windows at all , and apparently there were only 2 rooms int he hotel with a window . May not be a problem for some , but can be difficult for some people .

The other Points going for the hotel are
1. As i mentioned the staff tried to help us with whatever they could .
2. our room had a sitting area just outside and we enjoyed the view and evenings outside .
3. The rooms were generally spacious , clean and the bathrooms clean .

Stayed in for two nights, the room was very impressive. had a nice clean modern bathroom, the view from the room was awesome, I could sit on my bed and enjoy view of the town and the fairy chimneys. To wake up to see that view was priceless. The location is perfect and 2 minutes walk to the paronamic view peak point. Overall, it's perfect for relaxation and gives you a feeling of peace and quiteness. Nice staff and helpful.
I personally loved it.

I travelled with a family of 6 and stayed here for 2 nights. We had 3 rooms tucked in a cave with a little "living room" area outside our rooms. The rooms are clean but the bedsheets and towels seem to look old and grey.

It is a unique experience sleeping in a "cave" as it supposedly keeps u warm when it's cold outside and cool when it's warm outside. It was rather chilly at night and we needed the heater on but it wasn't very strong. Still we could sleep comfortably.

We also met with power cuts throughout the town 3 times in 2 days, but other than having no light, there is still some hot water if you happen to be caught showering when the power goes out.

The staff is very personable and friendly. Ozzy has a quirky sense of humor and may rub people the wrong way at first but he is really nice.

Breakfast is traditional Turkish style so no elaborate spreads or international cuisine.

Because there are no lifts, all luggages will have to be hand carried up the steps, with the help of the staff if you need. My room wasn't cleaned out on the first day, while another only had their rubbish emptied.

The hotel is located on a little hill some distance from the main area where the souvenir shops and restaurants are located, but it still within walking distance. The location of the hotel however means there is a better view of the area compared to hotels located closer to the main street.

Wifi is free but only available in the lobby/restaurant area.

It’s a nice place. The hotel is clean and the rooms are big.
Every room has a terrace where you can relax and admire the sunset.
The breakfast is generous.
