Walnut House
Ranked #17 of 78 Goreme B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 25, 2012

It was nice to meet Merdan and his family and the cats "Tekir" and "Ceviz". We didn't have any problems during our stay. We enjoyed having breakfast and watching TV with people in the entrance. Maybe they can put some slippers or can put some shower cabins in the bath. Also some people complain about hot water, in our room there was no problem you just need to wait 5 minutes.

I first visited the Walnut House 15 years ago and always stay there when visiting Goreme. Merdan and his father are very laid back and welcoming. The rooms are warm (love the underfloor heating) and the water hot. Breakfast is very filling and the omelettes are superb. All Merdan's recommendations re. eating out and places to go are spot on. He even acted as a taxi service on occasion without any charge. All in all, the epitome of a good family-run hotel. I look forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: The rooms in the recently renovated family home which has now become part of the hotel, are superb...

This elegant hotel has been voted an excellent place to stay in Goreme at reasonable rates.Nice young guy, his friendly father and stuff are all very warm and kind person managing this hotel. Especially, their hospitality gently makes our Turkey life so nice and easy. Nice and convenient location as everything is in walking distance including Otogar, supermarket, post-office, good restraints, and et al. Comfortable and large rooms in Ottoman style architecture are pretty well-made. And the floor heating was pretty well in cold morning and night. Tasty breakfast in comfortable lounge was nice and enjoyable. Delicious bred, fried egg and fresh vegetables fully satisfied us anytime. "Walnut House" is strongly recommended as one of the most favorite and comfortable hotel in Goreme.

I really enjoyed our New Year's stay at Walnut House. Merdan prepares a large breakfast, cooks a great omelette, and is happy to help organise extras such as balloon trips. The only thing wrong with our room was a lack of hot water on the first day but once we mentioned it the problem was immediately rectified. Highly recommended.

Lovely hotel with amazingly lovely and lively owners. Merdan and his father Fevzi are two very warm people who manage this hotel. Excellent location as everything is in walking distance including the famous Goreme Air Museum. Service is too good and as I said the difference is because of father and son's complete involvment. The rooms are well made and were pretty warm in chilling winters, really liked the underground heating which keeps the floor warm and heated. Breakfast was nice in morning and enjoyed having loads of Walnut from their garden. I recommend this as value for money and excellent place to stay.

The service is excellent, offered by a very helpful owner.
Location is perfect, right in the middle of the village, without noise.
We liked the architecture of the rooms and the interior design, as well as the overall design of the hotel.
Good breakfast in variety and quantity.
Excellent value for money.

This is a great value, recommended to us by friends who had stayed the previous year. We stayed in one of the front rooms (2nd floor) -- the barrel vaulted ceilings add charm and on one of the cooler days (mid-October), the heated stone floor was a nice touch. From the street, it is not particularly inviting (a large walnut tree is now gone and the street itself is not particularly charming) but we would echo the comments about its convenient location. After a day of hiking, getting to and from the bus station with bags, looking for a restaurant---the central location in the compact center commercial district of Goreme was ideal: if convenient location is a priority, this is the place. The breakfasts were good and the manager was very very friendly and helpful. We originally booked for two nights but extended for two more when we discovered how much there was to do in the area.
