Reviewed August 27, 2012

After a 3 week trip in Turkey where we have met nice people and visited beautiful places, Cappadocia and Taka ev was one of the higlights for us.
We booked Taka ev because of the incredible view, but after leaving liked it most because of the staff, especially Murat the owner. I know it has been said many times, but his helpfullness and friendliness is a real bonus. We only stayed for 3 days but thanks to Murat and his daily hikes, the hot air balloon ride and other tours it felt much longer. The hotel and rooms are beautiful too, very spacious with nice views. We really enjoyed our stay and hopefully return one day.

Murat, the owner, is the perfect host. Nothing is too much bother, from providing a taxi service, to organising trips, to taking you hiking in some of the beautiful valleys, to doing your washing! The breakfasts are amazing and the views from the terrace are spectacular. Our cave room was spacious with a large ensuite and surprisingly cool in the height of summer.
Uchisar, perched on the highest peak in the area, is an interesting village with a castle and numerous cave dwellings.
The Centre Cafe, which Murat recommended, was also excellent.

We were for 4 nights in Taka Ev. The hotel is fantastic; we had an awesome room inside the mountain, huge and cosy. Really amazing, with a very good bed to rest, since Capadocia demands a lot of energy ;)

I don’t know what the rating of the hotel is really. For me is a 5 star actually. The sixth star is Mr Murat Suber (and the whole Staff). They gave sense to our trip. He provides us with excursions (balloons), Car rental, restaurants… all necessary to enjoy Capadocia.

No doubts about to book your Hotel in Taka Ev preferably contacting directly with Mr. Murat.
Enjoy

We are a couple from Spain. We have spent great time in taka ev. The hotel is amazing, nice breakfast, great situation and a better room. Murat, the owner,explained us everything. He organised the visits and he offered himself as a guide for free.

Excelent, to repeat.

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed. In my opinion Uchisar is the best spot to stay in Cappadocia because it is the highest point so from there you get views over all the valleys - Rose, Pigeon, Love. The views from this hotel and the terrace will take your breath away. Cappadocia is a relatively small area and easy to navigate your way around. We happily got by without a car. Murat the owner is so lovely - he greets you like a long lost relative and is super friendly and funny with an infectious laugh. He does daily 2-4 hour hikes through a different valley every time and he takes his guests if they want to come along. I can't recommend the hikes enough - they are absolutely the best thing to do when you visit this area (as well as the hot air balloon which Murat also arranged for us). We got to walk amongst the love, pigeon, rose, red, green valleys and these were the trip highlight. The breakfast is included in the price and is amazing. Really good value and just an all round lovely experience. I can't recommend Taka Ev enough. The place and the staff are exceptional.

My husband and I stayed at Taka Ev for three nights during the last week of May. The location and services are lovely, but we especially enjoyed the personal touches provided by the owner and his assistant in the reception area. We rented a car for the duration and every morning he would provide a local map with suggestions for excursions for the day. He also arranged (at our request) a hot air balloon ride for us and other guests at the hotel. On our wedding anniversary we returned to our room, after a hot air ballon ride and sightseeing, to a beautifully decorated cake (made by the assistant, Gulcan) a bottle of wine and candles. The owner, manager and staff truly take the time to insure that their guests will have a wonderful experience! We will never forget our time there and highly recommend this beautiful hotel! The location is central to many sights and easily accessible. Our room was spacious and uniquely carved out of the hillside but well lit.
