Reviewed October 10, 2010

My husband and I recently went to this hotel and stayed 2 nights. The hotel was in a great location just a quick walk to downtown restaurants and shops. It was very convenient. The room was a good size. We had booked a double room and ended us with a triple room. The shower was great and the bathroom was large. The view from the terrace was just beautiful especially at sunset. We also took a tour recommended to us by the owner Mustafa which was the shorter ( 9-5pm) of the whole day tours but was great! He was very good about sharing the tour information. We lost one of our bags in transit and he offered my husband his jacket for the balloon ride the next morning as it was a little cold at 5 am. It was a good experience and we would go back.

This is a clean, comfortable, well-maintained hotel in a great location - right in the heart of Cappadocia, with beautiful views of picturesque Goreme from the rooftop terrace - but what really makes the hotel such an excellent value is the helpfulness of its owner, Mustafa. As soon as I made a reservation, he contacted me to explain what kind of services and help he could provide with planning the rest of our stay in Cappadocia, and his advice proved invaluable throughout our trip. The only caution I would offer is that you probably should bring earplugs unless you don't mind being woken up by the dawn call to prayer, but that advice applies in most of Turkey because you're never far from a mosque. Overall, I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!

It may look out of the way and a tad bedraggled but don't be fooled. This hotel has delightful rooms with showers that put the rest of the hotels we stayed in this area to shame. But that isnt the reason to stay. The main reason is its owner. A charming, friendly laid back gentleman who deserves your custom to stay in business. he is obliging and courteous and goes above and beyond the call of duty. Oh - and the secret roof bar is superb for sunset.

We chose this hotel because it was central in Goreme and because of its terrace view and its friendly owner. All three lived up to expectation. Mustafa is there at breakfast to greet you and chat about your day's plans. This was really nice as we were surprised at how little English is spoken even by hotel workers. I had not booked anything myself, but asked him to do it - all of them were far cheaper than I had been led to believe. The balloon trip was the highlight of our holiday - 30 balloons all hovering over the valleys - an amazing sight. We also did the whirling dervishes show which is about 5 minutes drive outside Goreme. We hired a car (through Mustafa) which gave us freedom to explore all the local valleys. Goreme is a magical place. The airport transfers were faultless and we had flown by Pegasus from Antalya to Kayseri on their summer timetable. It was a lovely end to a lovely holiday. Wish it could have been longer.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Mustafa is the travel agent, confidant etc. to all his customers. Funny guy too. We recommend this as the location is central.

There are many pensions and hotels in Goreme but what makes this one so special is its host Mustafa. He is very knowledgeable about local trails so the adventurous will be satisfied, at the same time he can arrange all the usual tourist activities also.The rooms are spotless. The view from the terrace is excellent. The hotel is situated in the center of town but is quiet. I highly recommend this hotel.

I was in the hotel for 04 nights. The room/bathroom are spotless clean and spacious. The breakfast is served on the roof and you are greeted by Mustafa who serves you every day and check if everything is fine. Mustafa and family are very friendly and of help when needed. I did the hot air baloon ride and thanks to Mustafa, got a lower price than other pleople I met in the tours. I highly reccomend this hotel and would go back to it in a next time.

Thanks Mustafa for your hospitality!
