“Clean comfortable rooms in a great central location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Gerdis Evi may be one of the best guest houses in turkey; it certainly is in Goreme. Rooms are clean, comfortable and safe. The cheerful ex-pat British hosts are a fantastic source for local information and ever cheerful. Gerdis is in a great location (and one of few that are not a steep uphill climb!) and serves a hearty delicious breakfast. Many Goreme guesthouses have great views, and Gerdis is no exception. If you can afford a minor splurge, ask for room #7, a virtual suite at a very reasonable price. If you plan a visit to Cappadocia (and you certainly should!), Gerdis Evi is the place to stay.

We stayed there for 5 days. The rooms were clean. Breakfast is very good and the staff is nice and helpfull, always willing to help. Very comfortable stay with easy access to tourist attractions. My wife and I loved everything about this "Otantik" hotel. I would certainly recommend to families. Enjoyable stay. If we'll come back to Cappadocia definitely will choose this hotel again.

Have to report back on this hotel as when I first visited it was very early days!

I fell short of giving it the highest rating as it was definitely a 'work in progress' well it isn't now.

My husband and I got the same fantastic welcome from the owner (Ali) and our stay was superb, aided by the amazing local knowledge of the owner, she has been living in Turkey for many years and the information we were giving made this stay even better. I can honestly say that if you are going to Turkey, this hotel is a must....oh and the breakfast was lush.

The Gerdis Evi Guesthouse gave us large smiles! The large room was very cozy with everything we wanted to find in Cappadocia; nights are coldish, so the efficient hot water heating system worked well. When we arrived early morning after an long travel by night bus, we were pleasantly surprised to find our room already warm and the welcome so friendly. Equipment in the bedroom met all our needs: confortable queen size bed, ample space for storage, large bathroom with a hair dryer and a towel heating hanger! The room was not a "cave version" but the atmosphere, the decoration and materials used did well represent the unique cappadocian features.Turkish breakfeast was very good. Wifi worked well; no tv in the room but the guesthouse has a surprisingly nice communal tv room. But who needs to watch tv in stunning Cappadocia! The Gerdis Evi was truly a good deal for us in Göreme with very reasonnable rates. The owner was attentive to our needs and comments; he offered to help us at free transportation to sites and to trekking valleys.

I have stayed in many hotels in Turkey and Gerdis Evi has one of the warmest atmospheres I've experienced, from beginning to end. The proprietors speak English (one is from the UK) and Kadir, the Turkish owner, is fabulous - funny, interesting and knowledgeable. Apparently it opened this year. Had there not been so many other activities in the area I would have been content to just hang out on the terraces and chat. For a single woman, this is a boon.
Comfort is a priority and the beds were indeed comfortable - bedding was nice too, which is not always the case in pensions of this country.The place was clean and breakfast was hearty enough for this big eater. Needless to say, this is not one of those charmless concrete block places :)
Gerdis Evi has a really nice vibe and I would not only stay there again, I would recommend it highly to any other visitors to the area.

Very cold room during the night, because heating was on lowest level. Seems they wanted to save energy.
Naphalene pellets were in the washing shell, maybe to prevent cockroaches to crawl out of the drain. The smell of this toxic pesticide was intensive and causing headache and dizziness.
The bathroom is dirty and the wet tiles get slippery, so you unavoidable slip at leaving shower and risk a serious injury.

We are saddened that you were unhappy with your stay in our guest house and if you had informed us at the time we could have resolved your issues – staff are available 24hrs. The central heating radiators in each room have individual temperature controls and we can provide extra blankets and an electric fire for guests who feel the cold (usually for the –C temperatures of winter months).
The bathroom is a wet-room with a separate shower area and a bath mat for use on wet tiles. As we the owners/managers do our own cleaning we are surprised at the term ‘dirty’ bathroom and pride ourselves on the praise from other guests regarding cleanliness. Our cleaning agents are not toxic but safe, hygienic materials and there is no record of any sighting of cockroaches at our or any other hotel in Goreme.
To-date none of our guests have expressed feeling cold or suggested the danger of an injury being inflicted in our bathrooms.
You also stated, on another review site, that staff “pretended” on check-in to be full the following day – as explained we were fully booked for the following 4 days because it was the Bayram week (Turkish public holiday), although the offer was made to make room available to extend your stay if at all possible.
We strive to maintain the highest standards of customer care in a warm and inviting atmosphere and hopefully succeed almost all of the time – as illustrated by other guest reviews on this and other review sites.
