Emily's Cave House
Ranked #60 of 80 Goreme B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Our stay at Emily's Cave House earlier this month was, simply put, amazing. The location is great, on a quiet side street but still just a very short walk to anywhere in Goreme. We stayed in one of the cave rooms, and it was fantastic. Huge and well-lit, with an enormous bathroom and shower. It's not an exaggeration to say that a normal-sized person could stretch out their arms in the shower and turn 360 degrees without hitting any walls, at least in our room. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Perhaps the biggest highlights of our stay at Emily's though, were the people who worked there. The couple who run it, Mehmet and Esen, are two of the nicest, friendliest, overall best people we met during our time in Turkey. They were always available to answer our questions and suggested things to do during our free day in Cappadoccia. Mehmet, who is from Goreme, was a valuable source of information. On our last evening in Cappadoccia we had a late flight back to Istanbul, but even after checking out in the morning, when we returned in the evening we were given the option to take a shower in our old room, and we were invited to have dinner with them. Bottom line: book a room at Emily's Cave House and you will not be disappointed!

We were told that this property was fairly new and it was recommended by the Istanbul travel agency that planned our trip through Turkey. It was very well located but was on a street that was full of contruction of a new building. It was a very dusty walkup from the road to the hotel - pulling bags was hard and it was quick slippery in places. There are only five rooms, and all were caves located in chimneys. Ours was spacious but lacked simple things like bedside tables and somewhere to hang or place your clothes. The bathroom was large but was very dim and my husband found it hard to shave. It was interesting to sleep in a cave but I did wake up each morning very stuffed up - perhaps the dust from the rock. The room was cool which was a relief from the heat. The breakfast was excellent and the owners very attentive and friendly. There were great views of the town from the upper deck and also the hot air balloons flew overhead of us each morning which was very cool. My two complaints are: all the staff (owner's included) smoked, and in the common areas. I know that it is almost mandatory to smoke in Turkey but none of the guests at the time we were there smoked and I found that annoying, and, although it was handy for guests to be able to hang thier basin laundry from the upper deck I thought that having sheets etc. from the rooms was unsightly and that all laundry (guest & hotel) could be located somewhere else perhaps.

We stayed two nights with Emily's cave house in mid-October. They have cute cave rooms and everything here has been wonderful.: big bathroom with plentiful of hot water, helpful and friendly staff and owners, amazing terrace with hearty Turkish breakfast every morning. Esin's melamen and gozleme are so delicious that we both still miss them. Maureen and Mehmet have been very helpful in recommending places and restaurants around the city. We wish them all the best in running this new cave hotel.

Our experience at Emily's Cave house was excellent.
We spend 4 nights during October 2012 and the owners did everything possible to make our visit perfect.
The breakfast was amazing , the room was clean and the terrace very cozy.
The moment we arrived were offered te and coffe , followed by a personal talk on what we could do in the area.
Emily's cave house is within walking distance to many sights.

We visited Goreme in August and stayed at Emily's cave hotel for two nights. We had two rooms. Both rooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast on the terrace was delicious.The host Esin Hanim was very helpful, friendly and generous. We arrived earlier than our expected time, she made breakfast for the whole family and would not accept any payment for it. It was like visiting family. The location is also excellent. Its an easy walk to city center. If I go back I will stay there again and would recommend it very highly to all.
