Castle Inn plays off of the fairytale cave environment in Cappadocia but being down the street from Ortahisar Castle it also adds its unique castle theme to the mix. Indeed, throughout your whole stay there, you will feel like royalty.
The beds are fit for kings, and after a long day of sight-seeing and walking, you will have an incredibly comfortable sleep. The rooms were spotless and very well stocked with toiletries and bed sheets. Despite traveling in the Winter, the room was warm and comfortable, thanks to several electric heaters that were turned on prior to our arrival by the staff.
The arch rooms were spacious and cozy, each with a dresser, nightstands, small table and chairs. The bathrooms for each of the arch rooms were different and gave each room a different flavor. One of the rooms had a jacuzzi bathtub while another had large, spacious, arched, glass windows that brightened up the entire room. Another had a window that offered a view to the gorgeous valley below the hotel.
The cave room is on the bottom floor and is a full dug-out cave remodeled to serve as a room. It was incredibly comfortable and cozy.
All of the rooms were built with an attention to detail. Each decorative item matches the theme of each room and all have a story attached to them. The experience of rooming at Castle Inn is unlike any other.
Castle Inn is located in Ortahisar, which is in a pretty central location close to Goreme. It is near the top of a high hill that overlooks a valley. On the top of the hill is Ortahisar Castle, which is one of the smaller tourist attractions (at least during the off season when we went). This is great because it pits the hotel in an extremely local environment and you will be able to experience some of the authentic Cappadocian community.
The owner, Suat Ulusoy, is a wonderful host. He is a traveler by heart, and built the hotel with the intention of meeting other travelers. He arranged our tours and travel while in Cappadocia, which was extremely helpful. In the late afternoons he would invite us to have tea and chat. The rest of the hotel staff were equally hospitable.
If you are traveling to Cappadocia stay at Castle Inn for the best experience in the area. The rooms are magnificent and at very affordable prices. You will feel like you are in a five star hotel with the charm and coziness of a small, local bed and breakfast.
