Reviewed September 30, 2012

We were 4 friends who stayed in a quad room at elysee pension for 3 nights.we got an excellent offseason rate. The hotel was excellent in all aspects. The room and bathroom was very spacious and well maintained. The continental breakfast too was very good. They also provided complimentary tea and coffee all throughout the day. The dining room also had fun board games that could be played. The owner, the staff were extremely hospitable and very helpful. They even gave us a ride to one of the nearby sites. They helped us out in procuring a good one day tour and also in renting a cheap 2 wheeler.

Elysee is a "pension". The rooms have different quality, some with a strange combination of shower and toilette. You have to put a towel over the toilette to kep it dry, But there are plenty of towels! Beds are good, clean.
The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, but overworked, maybe there should be more of them..
Due to this 4 points.

Staff at Elysee is extremely helpful and nice. They've helped us booked the balloon trip with fair price. Also showed us a great time and extremely helpful in everything. Loved it! Definitely have to stay here when I come next time or if i were to suggest a place for Cappadocia

I know it is a cliche to say that we were treated like family - but in fact, we were treated like family. The manager knew our names as soon as we checked in. When a taxi didn't show up, he and his friend took us on their scooters to our destination. He organized our balloon trip and it was perfect. It is a quiet but convenient location. The breakfast room as great views and wonderful food. The outdoor garden is beautiful. As for the rooms - the one downside is my room was on the ground floor facing the courtyard and was very noisy. Guests coming back from late night festivities were allowed to be very boisterous. Get an upper floor room with a view out the back.

Room Tip: Upper floor facing the back

I stayed as part of a tour group (Intrepid). The hotel is lovely, clean, very pretty, though it does need A/C or at least a fan. Sadly it's let down by a manager who makes Basil Fawlty seem thoughtful and friendly. He stalks the guests, demanding to know what they are doing (up early to watch the hot air balloons), refuses coffee before the dot of 7.30 am, runs around yelling 'check out time!!' before it is, makes snide remarks and stays up late talking loudly and smoking with his mates outside your window. He was a shocker.

I'm very happy that you liked the hotel but I am very surprised about your negative impression of our manager. I would like to comment on some of the things you said about our manager whom practically all our guests love and appreciate.

<<He stalks the guests, demanding to know what they are doing (up early to watch the hot air balloons),> It's natural that guests like watching balloons early in the morning but they should also consider other guests who are still sleeping. 5 people talking loudly on the terrace at 6, moving chairs noisily - there are rooms just under the terrace with people trying to sleep, the manager was just trying to make them quiet down.

< refuses coffee before the dot of 7.30 am,> Breakast starts at 8.00, and generally we offer free tea and coffee to our customers throughout the day. Unfortunately there was no hot water a 6 a.m. and at that moment the manager had more urgent matters to take care of than to make coffee to some noisy customers.

<runs around yelling 'check out time!!' before it is,> Checkout time is at 10.00 and if customers are still peacefully enjoying their breakfast at 9.55, it is the manager's job to remind them of it. New customers are waiting to check in at 10.30, so we have to ask our customers to check out on time as rooms need to be cleaned.

<makes snide remarks and stays up late talking loudly and smoking with his mates outside your window. > It is the manager's job to get up first in the morning and go to bed last at night. We try to remind our customers to keep their voices down when sitting on the terrace or in the garden late at night but people tend to forget about it. The manager also sometimes sits there and talks to customers who love chatting with him. I'm very sorry you couldn't sleep in your room in the evening because of the noise, but the same thing happened to other customers in the morning when you were talking loudly on the terrace. People should be more considerate towards one another.
