We spent 4 nights at Chelebi cave hotel & it was such a wonderful experience, Ismail & Harun are the best host providing touring information we need. Their recommendation on the balloon ride & green tour were excellent, we thoroughly enjoyed our tours, especially the hot air balloon. We stayed in both cave & regular rooms and they were both wonderful. Both rooms were warm & clean with very good water pressure. The kettle in the room was very convenient especially during the cold nights. Breakfast was great with many choices and the entire staff were wonderful! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We stayed in both cave & regular room, cave room is an unique experience, both are great!

We spent 3 nights at Chelebi while visiting the Cappadocia region and I can't say enough positive things about it. The room was very spacious, comfy, and had a lovely view. The two brothers who run the place are very gracious, welcoming, and eager to help you pick out a restaurant or find something to do for the day. There's a lovely terrace and they serve a delicious, traditional Turkish breakfast. The location is also ideal, you're steps from the best restaurant in the area - Top Deck Restaurant - and you're just up the hill from the nearby shops and other restaurants. We did tours and were picked up and dropped off directly from the hotel which was very convenient. I'd highly recommend this hotel to travelers.

We had a great time, stayed here for three nights. The bathroom was the best we encountered anywhere in Turkey. We had a big room with a sitting area, the heat was on and warm, and the rooms were clean. The staff was laid back, friendly, and helpful in a variety of ways. Plus there is an adorable resident bird! The breakfasts were filling and beautifully prepared/presented. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chelebi.

We stayed at this wonderful hotel during Turkey's national holiday in mid-October. We chose this hotel because of the positive reviews, so we expected a good experience. However, our stay far exceeded our expectations. The staff went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our vacation. Breakfast meals were great and filling. Our room was spacious and nicely furnished. They provided many extras that you would not expect at any price!

I highly recommend this hotel and will most definitely stay there again!

Chelebi is the gem of all accommodation. As someone who has been traveling for years, and has stayed in many different accommodation, I have to say this is the best place I have ever stayed. The newly renovated rooms are full of charm and character while at the same time being clean, and comfortable. The terraces and overlook the magical setting of Göreme and catch some wonderful morning sun. However it was more than just accommodation. For the four nights (our original booking of two nights became four) we stayed we were treated and looked after by Ismail and Harun with such friendliness and kindness. It started as we were greeted at the door, and finished only when saying goodbye. Ismail and Harun do everything they can to make your stay incredible. They recommend excellent tours, places to go and things to see, they organise trips, shuttles etc, make incredible breakfasts, and always have a cup of çay waiting for you. I am so pleased that our adventures led us to Chelebi Cave House and I highly recommend anyone coming to Göreme to stay here. I really hope that I will be lucky enough to be back here again in the near future.

This review is long overdue, as we stayed in late August 2013.

Eric and I enjoyed our 4 nights in Goreme immensely. Brothers/Owners Ishmael and Harun were our most hospitable hosts in the 3 weeks we stayed in Turkey. Upon our arrival they set us up in the room we reserved, and seeing that we were exhausted from the journey, offered us an afternoon snack of fruit and cheese-which held us over until dinner. Our room was really nice- such a unique hotel stay. We stayed in a cave room-a bit chilly as expected, which made the experience all more exciting. The bed was a little firmer than I am used to, but I slept great every night. Breakfast was awesome every morning- traditional Turkish breakfast, which I could never get enough of.

Harun and Ishmael will offer you all the chai you could ever want, as they are always looking to make you comfortable and show their kindness. All of the restaurants they recommended were delicious, some of the best food we had during our stay.

The hotel location is ideal, as Goreme is a great jumping off point for hiking and sight-seeing in Cappadocia. There were hours of amazing vistas and cave churches and dwellings from the hikes we went on straight from the town. No rental car needed.

The one day “red tour” we went on per their recommendation was well worth the about 100 lira, and allowed us to explore a larger area without worry about renting a vehicle, etc.

The hot air balloon ride was by far our best experience, and had Harun and Ishmael not talked us into it, we would have missed out on one of the top 5 adventures in life thus far. (Up there with Uluru in Australia, Hiking the Banaue Rice Terraces in the Philippines, and seeing the Pyramids of Giza).
What more can we say? There are so many cave hotels in Cappadocia; it can be overwhelming choosing one. We usually take a chance on a place that only has a few reviews (I think they were open only a few weeks before our stay)-and we are so glad we did! Chelebi Cave Hotel gave us an amazing experience in Cappadocia!

Ishmael and Harun, we wish you success with your business! It was a pleasure getting to know you during our short visit, when we think about Turkey we will think about your hospitality and the stories and memories we shared at your hotel.

Room Tip: If you want a cave hotel experience, request one of the cave rooms, both are gorgeous. Want a view...
