This hotel is the kind of hotel you see in movies, or Travel Channel shows, and yet, normal people like me can stay here!
We stayed here three nights at the tail end of our trip in Turkey, and really, it was heavenly. The architecture of the place emulates and builds on Cappadocia's famous cave dwellings, and the grounds are a mix of luxury, spa-ish modern (lovely patios and a pool) with traditional antique (the dining area resembles an 18th century ), and ancient (the rooms are built in the caves).
The service is exquisite, from the moment our feet entered reception to the moment we left the grounds. The decor is unbelievable -- the place is littered with relics and antiques, and it is just breathtaking to see. This is the kind of hotel you want to spend time at, rather than use as a place to sleep between sightseeing. The breakfast is out-of-this-world; the evening cocktail hour wonderful (we had spiced wine outside on the patio while it snowed!).
I could gush all day -- I can't wait to return.

No room can be alike, with each bringing its own special ambiance, contributing to Museum Hotel's evident character and charm. Steeped in thousands of years of history, there is a magical feel to the hotel. Our unusual 'living museum' concept means our cave rooms and specially restored traditional rooms are all decorated with priceless antiques and feature stunning views of Cappadocia-just some of the elements that go to make Museum Hotel... well, unique!
