“Beautiful with great views and hospitality!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

What a fabulous place to stay! This hotel is at the top of the hill so you have great views all day long and at night time too. The owner Arif and his son Ahmet are gracious and friendly hosts. They are extremely helpful,and went out of their way on several occasions to patiently accommodate our unavoidable last minute travel changes. They have done a beautiful job in their renovations and the top quality craftsmanship and attention to detail shows. This is a very high quality hotel and still manages to be a great value. Shane was friendly and helpful too! We had a wonderful stay, loved the fairy chimney room and highly recommend this hotel!!

I was looking for somewhere to stay in a good location and a cave room.
Arif Cave hotel has probably the best position in Goreme to view the
caves/chimneys and watch the hot air balloon rides early in the morning.
The cave room we stayed in was good size, very clean and tidy, a modern
bathroom and we had our own private terrace. Breakfast was included,
which was a traditional Turkish breakfast.
Ahmet was extremely helpful in helping us organise day excursions as
well as making us feel very welcome!
After a day of seeing Goreme and its surrounding areas, coming back to
the Arif Cave hotel and relaxing on the viewing platform with a drink in
hand to watch the sunset was priceless!
Thanks Ahmet and Arif Cave staff, hope to come back soon.

The whole idea/look/feel of these "cave" hotels are fantastic but for the price we paid for the "Executive Cave Suite" we were a bit disappointed. The bathroom was unfinished and the jacuzzi tub was too small for two people. The wifi (not a hug deal) didn't expand to all areas of the room,. you had to stay by the entrance to get connectivity. The bed was and pillows were a bit hard. The biggest complaint was the breakfast. It was easily the worst breakfast of any place I've stayed at not only in Turkey but throughout Europe. This place gets a 3.

My husband and I stayed at this cave hotel in November 2013 and it was a superb experience. Our room was a fantastic cave room. Ahmet is very very friendly and went out of his way to help us during our stay. We loved this place because of the lovely views it has to offer and great hospitality. We would love to go back to Cappadocia and stay at Arif cave hotel again.

I’ve been spending lots of time to check a cave hotel with a reasonable price in Goreme and finally found this top one cave hotel. I suggest you saving your time and directly book this one if you have lots of questions and need a responsive and friendly service. The owner, Ahmet is a very responsive and helpful. My husband and I arrived at night at the hotel after flew three connecting flights and another hour of bus ride to Goreme. He and his father warmly welcomed us and offered us with welcome drink, gave us the map and suggested us the itinerary. We told him our selected hot air balloon operator and he arranged the balloon tour ride with a very good price (we paid the price for small-basket-less-passenger for the price of big-basket-more-crowded hot air balloon). Ahmet even helped us to change the money with good rate as we didn’t have much Turkey Lira when we arrived. We stayed in a large cave room with balcony and the view was amazing. With the fast wifi, we can immediately share our pictures to friends :) The hotel itself is on the very top of the hill. It takes 5 minutes walk to the bus terminal, restaurants and shops and 1 km to Goreme Open Air Museum. We really enjoyed our stay in Arif Cave Hotel.

Best Hotel we have stayed in Turkey actually. Arif and Ahmet are really great people and they made our stay even better helping us with everything (tour, balloon flight, transportation, etc) If you go to Goreme, stay in Arif Cave Hotel. Great room, great view and location.
