Arif Cave Hotel
Ranked #24 of 78 Goreme B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 31, 2011

This is a wonderful family owned hotel overlooking the city of Goreme. The family who owns it is a local Turkish family from Goreme and they are increadibly kind and hospitable. The rooms are very clean and the view at sunset on the roof is remarkable. Breakfast is also served on the terrace and it was so relaxing I spent one of my days lounging on the roof/terrace. I will stay there again!

At the beginning the pension owner took us from bus station, so we didn't have to look for Arif Hotel. The hotel is located in a cave at a very high point of Goreme. There is a great view on the city. Room was very clean. The hotel owners are very friendly and helpful if you require some advice where to go and how to get there. We spent very enjoyable evening with Ahmed from Arif Hotel and his cousin smoking waterpipe. It was unforgetable experience. We want to go to Kapadokya again just to stay in Arif Hotel.

Arif hotel was quite wonderful. It is located at the top of the hill in Gorme and has a fantastic view of the town. Each morning, I woke up to an incredible and unequaled view of the hot air balloons to the east (no other hotel in Gorme has this view). The hotel gladly made arrangements for me - shuttle bus to/from airport, tours, hotair ballon and provided suggestions when I wanted to go it alone for a day. They have rooms that are clean and basic and fantatic cave rooms in the fairy chimmy that were just completed this year (spring 2010). The service that Arif and Ahmet (father & son) was quite nice and very friendly.

Do not let the rough entry to Arif Cave Pension and hotel scare you off. The walk up the hill to this lovely family owned and run pension is well worth the effort. With 18 rooms there ıs something for every budget and taste. The rooftop terrace easily boasts the best view in town and it is a great place to relax and watch the sunset.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and hot water plentiful and always available. I enjoyed being above the town where it is quiet and peaceful yet a very easy and pleasant walk to town and all the restaurants and shops. Definitely a recommend for your stay in this lovely and pleasant town where everyone seems to be happy and genuinely friendly.
