“a surprise package..magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Once you walk in to Safran you get a natural grin on your face. As you make your way in from the street, the garden is so inviting you can not resist its charm. As we made our way up the stairs to our room, we felt transported into another world, the feel, charm and character of the Hotel is complemented by the service, warmth and eager to please attitude of the staff. Special mention to Ali who went out of his was to give an Historical breakdown as well as drawing the whole area and outlining the 'not to be missed' attractions. The breakfast was a feast of traditional Turkish offerings including gozleme. I would highly recommend the Safran experience to anyone that is in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed in upstairs corner room, excellent

The only one hotel once I step into the room then make my decision. couldnot say the best hotel in cappadocia, but the best one during my trip in Turkey. room rate is reasonable and good. as everybody said from the review: family atmosphere, newly decoration, ottoman style,perfect breakfast with home made pancake(my favorite), great hospitality....the first time writing review, thank you safran cave hotel!
来土耳其第一次到个陌生地方看的第一个hotel就决定了的,我们住的楼下的房间,装修很豪华大床大洗手间暖气价格很公道,老板小伙非常热情聪明且幽默.整个hotel就是一大家人开的非常有氛围,早餐很好能撑到下午2点不饿,位置就在goreme最中心的路口偏东北侧,我一般都check好几家看完才决定住哪,价格比较....safran 决定是性价比最好的. 赞一个

Room Tip: the only one lower floor is the best choice

We spent 5 nights at the Safran cave hotel in Goreme. We had a fantastic time there. It is the best hotel we have stayed in! The welcome we received was warm and genuine and the service throughout was exemplary. We felt like one of the family. The rooms were beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. There were lovely touches around the hotel that made it a place you wanted to come back to after a day of sightseeing. We were served a traditional Turkish breakfast which would often include something additional cooked by Dileck(the owner and cook). We would definitely recommend you have one of the special dinners she prepares.
Ali was fantastic. He made our stay more memorable due to the kindness and hospitality he showed us. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him. From making me a lemon and honey drink when I wasn't feeling very well to bringing in additional heating when we were feeling cold. He was just excellent.
We loved our time there and we hope to return sometime in the future.

No need to say you will love the hotel since it has one of the best interior design, great location, comfortable beds but the family who runs the hostel is very nice, sincere and lovely and worth meeting! They are very helpful and the mum is an awesome cook! If you still have space in your stomach after the free-breakfast, have the dinner at the hotel as well! Thanks for the experience Safran!

Room Tip: A little bargain would help about the price for groups

Beautiful B&B with lovely family atmosphere. Magical location. People were friendly and went out of their way to assist us. Hope Pinar had a lovely wedding and is all settled in her new home. Meg and Alan
