“best value accomodation in Turkey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We came for 3 days but stayed for 5.This was the best accommodation and our favourite hotel during our 6 week journey around Turkey.
The hotel is quiet yet within a 5 minute walk of the centre of Goreme, for restaurants, transport links, shopping etc. The hotel is just along the road from the open air museum and from other sites and walks: it is a perfect base for any traveler.
Our room was excellent - spacious, comfortable and clean and, the bed and en suite could not have been better; other guests shared comments about the high standards of their rooms and like us, how pleased they were to have found the place. The outside terraces with their places for eating, relaxing, having a beer or cup of tea, allow guests to enjoy the wider garden spaces outside their rooms.
The breakfast prepared by Osman was superb - we would wake in the morning and have a discussion about the food that was in store for us that morning. Hotel/B&B Turkish breakfasts are pretty much the same throughout the country but Osman's fare always included something cooked, something special. No matter what time of day tea or coffee was always available, and Osman or Ali were always happy to make one for us.
Ali and Osman were always happy to give us time for conversation and advice about what to do, what to see and how to get there. Their warm welcome to Goreme and Gerdis Evi certainly helped make our stay there one of the highlights of our Turkey holiday.

My second trip! This time for a week with my son. What a great place for kids - Osman and Cadir were great fun, playing table tennis with him on a daily basis. Was in one of the big family rooms - huge super king size bed in there and lovely hot showers morning and evening. Ali organised our trips with her usual efficiency, recommending a brilliant tour to keep a 7 year old entertained, underground city and roman ruins... My favourite place was the chair swing in the garden, lovely place to relax in the shade. Breakfasts are the usual Turkish affair, with bread, cheeses, fruits and even cocoa pops.... But Osman also cooks up specials like gozleme and a Turkish scrambled egg and some really tasty Aubergines dish. All in all, a lovely place to stay, located in a great place.

We had a great stay at Gerdis Evi. It is conveniently located (and no walk uphill) at one end of the town and from here we walked to the open air museum and were able to hike to Rose Valley.
The suite we stayed in was attractive, spacious, clean and comfortable. Good breakfast choices and tea and coffee available all day.
High praise for the attentive, friendly and helpful owners/staff Ali, Kadir and Osmond.
Highly recommended.

This is our favorite hotel in all of Turkey. Not only is it well-appointed, spacious, spotlessly clean and in a central location with a generous and delicious buffet breakfast, our hosts (Turkish owners Kadir and Osmond and English expat co-owners Ali and Mike) made sure that we were comfortable, entertained, well-fed and part of their extended family. Our time in Goreme would not have been as superb without them. We had originally planned on 3 nights and ended up staying 6 nights. Many thanks to Mike and Kadir for ensuring that we had a wonderful time hiking, to Osmond who is a great cook, and to Ali for the good conversation and advice. We will be back, hopefully very soon.

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.
