We stayed in a cave room suite. Our first choice of fairy chimney rooms were all booked. The cave suite was cozy and yet very spacious. Service and staff is excellent. Their restaurant has a great view. Food is ok. Most cave hotels are a climb above the main centre. But kelebek is not too steep nor long a walk from the city centre.
The hotel also owns a balloon company (butterfly balloons)and a travel agency(Turkish heritage travels). Unlike a lot of places in turkey, Kelebek never misguides or forces yout to use one of their sister concerns for your travel planning.
But I would highly recommend both the travel agency and the balloon company. Though they are on the expensive side they are far superior to the other agencies in the region.
We took an excellent day tour with them. We saw other agencies offering more sights on their tour. On enquiry we found out that these agencies added into their itineraries museums that were closed for renovation, carpet weaving, pottery demontration and shopping etc which are absolutely worthless. Turkish heritage did none of that rubbish and had a very well informed guide.
Though we had a booking with butterfly balloons, our flight was cancelled because of bad weather. A lot of the other balloon companies took the risk and flew that day despite bad weather, but butterfly refused as safety was their priority. They suffered a loss of 7500 euros (approx) in refunds that day. Clearly they choose your safety over their own profit. Therefore, despite not flying with them I would recommend them highly :)
