Angela was a wonderful host and we really enjoyed our time at Taskonak. We felt that it was amazing value for money, we had a spacious room, the breakfast was abundant and varied. Loved the individual plungers coffee!

Starting from the hotel view, that is uptown so you can see the awesome landscape while having breakfast. That's so nice but you can simply ignore the landscape because the breakfast is awesome! Fresh bread, a variety of juices, homemade jellies, fresh brewed coffee only for you... And adding up to all of these you have comfortable rooms and the kindest staff ever... The owner Angela is so nice, you can see that she is there not only for the business, she is really passionate about the place. I would definitely recomend this hotel!

Price is very economic and the service is perfect. The owner and the staff is very kind. Very clean rooms with a perfect view of terrace. Especially if you will not take the balloons you should stay in this hotel because in the morning around 6am, you will have a view full of rising balloons. It is very romantic. And the owner, Angela's pancakes are highly delicious! You should try in breakfast. In short great value for price.

Room Tip: I couldnt connect to the wifi in my room (Room 7) so i had to go to the loby to connect. But the roo...

For the 5 weeks we spent travelling in Turkey, the breakfast at Taskonak Hotel was by far the best -- not only the typical Turkish fare but also yogurt and honey, fruit juices, cereals and cold milk, fresh fruit, pancakes and home-made jams, plus a different pastry each morning that Angela, the Australian owner, would cook herself and surprise us with. We stayed in one of the quaint newer rooms (standard room #10), only 150 year old but we did peek at the large junior suites down on the bottom level, apparently 500 years old, that were gorgeous. The location is a short 5-minute walk up the hill from town but we're in our late 60s and it wasn't a problem. The staff were very friendly and helpful (e.g., picking us up from the bus station at 6 am). We stayed here for 4 nights but wish it could have been much longer. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Incidentally, we had several meals at Fat Boys Restaurant in the centre of town, owned by Angela's husband Yilmaz, where the food and staff are great, and so are the prices, even before the 10% discount that Taskonak Hotel guests receive.

Room Tip: I believe room #10 is a little larger than the other standard rooms.

We booked two rooms at the Taskonak Hotel. My mother-in-law stayed in a small room and my husband and young baby stayed in a cave room. We were all very happy with our arrangements. It is a small, average hotel, that is worth its value. The staff is great (no worries about English as the owners are Turk and Australian) and are very helpful with arranging excursions, airport transfers, and giving information about the area and what to do.

If you have a baby , they have a crib with extra blankets, which was fantastic.

Overall the best part for us was the terrace with a lounging area, as the views are fantastic. A great place to eat your breakfast, which is very nice and always has some of Angela's home made baking..mmmm

Room Tip: The regular room is fairly small and the cave rooms are quite big. There is a huge difference betwe...

I had no real idea what Taskonak Hotel would be like when I booked, but my gut was telling me YES, YES YES! And as usual, my gut was totally spot on.

This small hotel, overlooking the ancient troglodyte town of Goreme, is perfect -- in that it's calm and utterly tranquil, extremely well run (by the owner, an Aussie called Angela, who's married to a local gentleman), and it's EXCELLENT value.

I couldn't recommend this place more highly. And it's the kind of hotel you dream of finding… an un-fussy retreat where you can laze out on cushions on the terrace, and read, think, or soak up the wifi.

Angela: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! to you and your team.

Taskonak is an example of how things are when they're all just right.

Please don't change a thing.

Room Tip: We had 4 and 5 (I think) which were a family suite. Really recommended. Also recommended was the...

The price of the room was lower than most other hotels in Göreme, yet the inside of the room was beautiful and cosy, made of stone. The owner Angela was very welcoming and helpful giving advice on hikes and organized tours. The location of this hotel in Göreme is fantastic, somewhat in the heights of town, overlooking the town and fairy chimneys. The roof-top terrace was very pleasant for breakfast or any other time of the day - great views. One small negative was that both the room and the bathroom were quite small. We managed to open our two suitcases but that didn't leave a lot of remaining space in the room. Also, very little cabinet storage space in the room. The small room size must be the reason for the low price; overall it's still great value for your money.

Thank you so much for your review. Our standard rooms are quite small as they are original rooms dating back 150 years. We clearly show on our website and other booking sites that the rooms are small and I am happy that you managed to enjoy the other positives of your hotel! We are so lucky with our view and we hope to see you again!
