Cappadocia is a place not to be missed during your lifetime, and when you make it there you should stay in the lovely laid back town of Goreme and further in the fantastic hotel Sultan Cave Suites. The hotel's manager Mustafa made me feel welcome immediately on arrival (and on several occasions subsequently including a few drinks down at Fat Boys cafe). I was a little apprehensive about the 'cave room' but decided to give it a go and was glad I did. It's very dark but that just lends to the experience. The room was nicely decorated and the toiletries proved were extensive, including TWO body scrub sponges which came in VERY handy after a day's hiking of the dusty valleys. I would probably splurge a little more next time for one of the better rooms however, with balcony on other side of hotel (not sure they are cave rooms, but the sunrise with balloons dotting the sky would make it worth it!).
The standout of the hotel however is the breakfast...along with Hotel Sonne in Kas, it ranks as the standout breakfast of my 2 month trip and both were probably the best breakfasts I've ever had. Mustapha's tip to have the toasted bread with tahini and grape molasses as an 'energy boost' was also spot on - and delicious though those watching their weight should probably avoid.
