“Sleep in a Cave”
Reviewed September 29, 2010

The rooms are very nice for an inexpensive Pension and because you are sleeping in a cave the temperature is just right for sleeping. The location is good as it is only 5 minutes walk to the centre of Goreme. The staff are a little hit and miss. I would definitely not stay here if I was a single female unless with a friend.

A great place to stay in Goreme which was our choice of towns for our Cappadocia adventure. We were picked up at the bus station after an overnight bus ride from Pamukkele by the hotel manager. We arrived one night early and they didn't have a room for us so found us another room for the one night after feeding us breakfast for 5 lire each then whisking us off to our new hotel. They picked us up the next day at that hotel (which was also nice but not a cave hotel) and served us breakfast, now free, for our first day of a 7 day stay. We got to know Ramazan, the owner, his father Ahmet and Ibo and Mamet the managers. We felt like family in a day or so, being taken up to the family gardens for a BBQ, to a wedding reception of friends, and playing backgammon with Ahmet. Great WiFi, breakfasts and the real deal cave room that we were looking for. The hospitality was a huge bonus and so appreciated. Thanks Ramazan and family.

We were made to feel very welcome, particularly our 2 energetic boys who Ibrahim and Ramasan entertained by playing darts and footy. The Star Cave has a lovely atmosphere and was very relaxing after our busy days. We were given fabulous advice on where to eat, choosing to eat there every night. They even managed to track down our lost bag, much appreciated.

Only spent a few days here, but if I could I would've spent a lot more. I found the hotel to be very clean(both rooms&bathroom), the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable and the location is great. What I will remember most is the staff who worked there as I felt they went out of ther way to help in any way they could.. Highly recommended!!! A+

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
