We stayed here for 4 nights (mom + 2 twenty-something daughters) in room 106 (on the upper level). Mom loved the big jacuzzi tub, especially for the end of the day after long hikes.
LOCATION: The location was fantastic. A couple of people on our tour (who stayed at other hotels), commented that we had a great location. The hotel is located on a higher part of the hill, overlooking some large rocks with pigeon holes. There are birds flying overhead and chirping throughout the day and night (but it did not disturb our sleep). The hotel itself is up on the hill, which provides for great views but means one must walk up and down to get to the town center (which is not far). Our suite was on an upper terrace, so you do have to walk up a couple flights of stairs, which might be difficult for some people to access.
There is a hiking trail just behind the hotel, on a ridge that overlooks both the town of Goreme and rock formations. We definitely recommend you go hiking behind the hotel. You can hike these trails on your own and go down into the valley along many different paths. We recommend you survey the land from above and then hike down (as opposed to starting from below and hiking up). This ridge is the best view for looking at the hot air balloons. We woke up at 6:30 every morning just so we could see them. You can also hear the balloons sometimes. We were able to see the balloons from the terrace outside our room. We were also able to view the sun setting from our room.
SERVICE: Hotel manager Tayce is very friendly and helpful. She chats with all her guests during breakfast, and it is obviously a family-run business. She coordinated several activities for us and gave us great recommendations for things to do. She is the go-to woman for everything -- you mention something one time and it is done. Every time we had a question or wanted to book something, she would immediately call for us and confirm our reservations. We did the hot air balloon ride and a tour to southern Cappadocia (we highly recommend a balloon ride; we used Butterfly Balloons, which is more pricey than some other options but captain Mustafa was wonderful and could double as a comedian). Tayce even arranged for a taxi driver to take us on a private tour so that we could see specific things without joining a tour group. We also emailed her our boarding passes and she printed them out for us. She arranged the transportation to and from the airport to the hotel (there is a discount if you also book the return transfer). Everything ran like clockwork, which made for a very relaxing trip.
FOOD: The breakfast was simply delicious. There was fresh bread, locally-grown fruit (apricots from the nearby trees), tomato, cucumber, yogurt, and a variety of cheeses. There was homemade jam and a honeycomb as well. Every day they brought us a different variation of an egg -- scrambled, hard-boiled, omelet. One day we were served sigara böregi, which is a cigar-shaped savory pastry made of phyllo dough wrapped around some cheese and parsley or other herbs.
MISC: Be aware that the internet connection is not very strong in the room or the upper terraces. As a result, we used the outside lobby area (on the ground floor) to use the internet. Many other guests did the same, so we would sometimes chat with the other guests. There is nice seating in this area. The weather cools off considerably at night, but it was still comfortable enough to sit outside our room or in the lobby area.
