As part of a tour of Turkey, I was part of a group which stayed in the Ottoman for 2 nights. The hotel was a delight after the anonymous "5 star" hotels we'd stayed in up to this point!
The hotel isn't large, 3 floors high (no lift, but the staff will carry luggage if needed), with the restaurant/bar and outdoor balcony seating on the top floor. The hotel is less than 5 mins from Goreme bus station, so would be ideal for travellers arriving by bus. It's also a stone's throw from bars, shops, etc in the middle of the village so entertainment is close at hand.
The interior is mostly white plaster, with lots of wall hangings and rugs on the floors - almost like being in a large tent!
From discussions with other members of the group, the rooms aren't all the same, and there are different facilities available depending on the room you're in. For example, my room (2nd floor front) didn't have air conditioning, but other rooms did have it. My room had 2 single beds, and some hanging space in an alcove (a wardrobe without doors, if you will!). The bathroom was very small, not much bigger than an en-suite room in a regular house, and it contained a WC, sink and shower cubicle. All was clean, if a little worn. Some rooms were suite-style, with a separate sitting area and bedroom, some had a jacuzzi bath.
Breakfast was buffet style, with a small selection of breads, jams/honey, juice, tea/coffee, and there was someone on hand to cook eggs on demand.
Dinner (included in our package) was served to our tables, and was very tasty.
Drinks weren't overpriced (e.g. beer was €2 approx).
Both breakfast and dinner were served in the 3rd floor restaurant.
I didn't use the swimming pool in the basement, but had a look, and it seemed to be in good condition.
We all agreed that the hotel was great, it was clean, comfortable, it had character, and is very centrally located.
