It's a nice property with conveniently located. Faruk is very helpful and can arrange for any requirements. Market is very close and only place in Gerome for a stroll. Breakfast spread was less and can be improved.

Nothing like starting the day on a rooftop terrace overlooking Goreme, enjoying organic, local foods for breakfast. You might even see a hot air balloon wafting by! We booked at the last minute and were pleased with our double room, The Orchid, located on the first floor. It was simple, well appointed with a very nice bathroom. Kismet Cave House is on a quiet street, and is an easy walk to the town's center. Faruk and his staff offer warm Turkish hospitality. We were encouraged to bring snacks and drinks up to the terrace in the evening, to hang laundry on the line up on the roof deck, to play with Alex the resident puppy...in other words, to really make ourselves at home. Lovely.

Room Tip: I believe the Kismet Cave House has more interesting and larger rooms than ours. However, we were qu...

What other glowing accolades can I share that other reviewers haven't posted yet? We stayed in the Tulip cave room and truly enjoyed our experience in Cappadoccia and Farouk is an outstanding example of Anatolian hospitality. Where else will you find an owner masquerading as receptionist, tour guide, chef, concierge, valet and historian all with a smile on his face? If you're traveling to Goreme, there is no need to explore other options -- stay at the centrally located Kismet Cave House!

I stayed at Kismet Cave House for 1 night with 3 other friends. It was the most wonderful part of our Turkey trip. Faruk and his staff were the most hospital and welcoming folks ever. The breakfast was healthy and fresh with local fruits, yogurt, honey, eggs and bread. The staff was up in the morning with us when we had to wait for our hot air balloon pickup at 5am. Faruk offered to drive us to a restaurant in town for dinner and to the bus station even though the main strip in Goreme was walking distant from the hotel. Faruk also arranged a 2-day private guided tour for the 4 of us that is cheaper than any other group tours we found. The guide is very professional, and we were able to customize itinerary and change it as we go.

Faruk, the owner, really makes you feel at home. The rooms are nicely decorated, beds are comfortable and shower really good. I also had a jacuzzi in my bathroom but didn't use it... The breakfast in the terrace is delicious with fruit, juices, Anatolian cheese (yum!) and a wonderful view. If you go early 7ish, you can see the hot air balloons flying around. Faruk also arranged tours and the hot air balloon flight for good prices. Turkish hospitality as its best!

Farooq is a wonderful host. He welcomed us to his 'cave house', and we loved the entire experience. Hot air balloon rides are a must, and he will arrange everything. The driver, Mustafa, is sincere and knows his way around, including to some really nice kebab houses. One night, Farooq's wife cooked us dinner - slow cooked beef in a clay pot, egg plants, lentil soup - we ate on the terrace.

Lovely!

Cappadocia was the highlight of our Turkey trip and not just because of the place but also because of Faruk and the charming Kismet Cave House that he runs.

Kismet has great location, the rooms are nice and tastefully decorated with local artifacts. All our transfers and tours were superbly arranged. The Turkish breakfast is to die for.

Faruk, his family and staff are really warm and friendly which made our trip special. Special mention to their puppy Alex who is bundle of naughtiness and super fun.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rose room at the top of the hotel. The view from the sitting area right outside the...
