Me and my two girl friends stayed here for three nights while we were touring Cappadocia. Not only was Ramazan absolutely fantastic as a host (made us breakfast even if we missed the breakfast time, helped us with our luggage, made sure we had directions and transportation to all the things that we wanted to do-- he even had his father drive us out to the underground city-- and all for much less than what the local tour offices were asking for). He was also a great resource for discounted prices on hot air balloon rides, suggestions on what to do day-by-day and he even took us on a hike out to the secret garden (no food for us though-- no time- sad face).
The rooms are simple and clean. (And cool, which is nice during the hot weather.) The balconies all have pretty great views, there's wifi in the public spaces and the property is beautiful with flowers and grape vines everywhere-- really peaceful. It's also conveniently located at the end of the road so its easy to get to (and remember where you live) and yet far enough away so you don't have to deal with tourists wandering around your hotel and cars driving by at all hours of the night.
Definitely request a shuttle from the airport though. I didn't have time and forgot to book it, and getting there without the shuttle (~20-25 lira/person) was expensive (~100-150 total for three people) and really inconvenient and tiring.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Star Cave is a family-owned and run hotel located in a traditional restored Cappadocian house in the centre of Goreme. Most of the rooms are cut into the rock while the upper rooms are built from the local stone. Sleeping in a cave room is a great experience - the quality of this age-old rock means that the rooms stay cool in summer and retain the warmth in winter. We create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where you can chill out with a drink on one of our panoramic terraces, taste local home-made cooking and basically enjoy typical authentic Turkish hospitality. Our breakfast buffet includes a selection of Turkish specialities as well as fresh seasonal fruit. ... more less
