“Very Friendly Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights. The cave room was large with big attached bathroom. It was renovated, with central heating and was very clean. Yasin, the owner very friendly and helpful. He provided us with the map with the route to take for the walking trip though the cave houses and churches in the hills, red valley, rose valley and all the way to Gavusin on day one and then to the pigeon valley and the love valley on day two. Jer Ning Lam, his wife from Sabah, Malaysia was also very helpful and will be useful for those who can only speak Chinese and Malay. Breakfast was good and internet connection in the dinning area was good. Tea was free in the warm reception lounge. The address of the hotel in the name card is Gafelli Mah, Cevizler Sok, No 15 Goreme

Room carved out of the rock or so it seemed. Predictably a little cool and damp at night but had a great bed and a mysterious feel to the experience. The service was outstanding - they waited up for us until late, provided great recommendations for the area and helped get Champions League soccer for us... Mustafa the owner was very accomodating. Fair breakfast but the pool was not operational. Great location with an easy walk to all the attractions

I loved every part of my 3 day stay with them. We checked the dorms which were good but finally settled for the pvt. rooms which we got for 100 TL per night for 2 people and 130 TL another room for 3 people. Breakfast is included above price and it was the typical turkish one which I love. Good staff, free wifi, swimming pool and nice location.

The rooms were very clean. We stayed in the deluxe double, it was not really a cave room but the way they have built the hotel gives the feeling of a cave.

We went during September and it was slightly chilly in the evenings so the pool was not functioning/ not clean.

It was situated very conviniently, close to restaurants and bars. I was glad it was a trek uphill to get to the hotel.

It was a pleasant stay.

Stayed 2 nights. Just so helpful and friendly. Close to centre but far enough away to be tranquill Absolutely hassle free. Can book all touristy things through them as well ad shuttles to & from airport. Just email them They answer your emails which is a real plus!

We loved this place. We didn't look for elegant but boring hotels, so Nirvana was our home. We stayed there for 3 nights and there wasn't a wardrobe in our room, but there were two comfortable chairs outside where you could relax, in fresh air, normal silence and a nice swimming pool, clean and cool. The staff was ready to help you for everything, from borrowing a hairdryer to renting a scooter or two guided or .. and the landscape around was super. The cost, through booking. com, was very good. Breakfasts of good quality, in the terrace, complete and various.

Loved this place, and ended up staying six nights. I stayed in a deluxe cave room which was big and spacious, opening on to the central courtyard. Lots of comfy chairs outside to while away the hours, and a nice pool. But the best thing for me was the amazing service from the staff. I lost a bag on the flight to Cappadocia and Yasin was really helpful in making multiple phone calls to the airline and various airports to help me track it down. He is also really keen to help with advice on local attractions, walking routes and restaurants.
The internet is pretty dodgy, and our shower had no cold water (only hot), but it seems that wifi and showers are pretty common issues in Turkey.

Room Tip: The deluxe cave rooms are awesome
