Museum hotel is a worthy Relais & Chateau property, hitting the high marks across the board from service to setting. If you want to be sure of a luxurious stay in a stunning location, this hotel should be your choice in Cappadocia. On to specifics....
The service was outstanding. Incredibly friendly and accomodating staff took care of adults and kids perfectly. We were two families, each with two kids ranging from 4-8. From restarting a fire in the outdoor bar late at night after regular staff had left just for my friend and I to have a late drink, to bringing breakfast plates to a non-dining area near the pool, the staff handled things wonderfully and quickly.
Rooms are absolutely unique and memorable. The cave rooms are beautiful - even the smallest variety is actually quite large and gorgeously appointed. Mattresses are tempurpedic throughout. As mentioned, we had two kids with us and thought we'd be cramped because the suites were booked when we made our last minute reservations. Not so. They converted a daybed to a sleeper for my son and brought a playpen sleeper for my daughter - plenty of room. Well designed bathrooms with nice toiletries.
Breakfast buffet is wonderful. Dinner was also excellent.
The setting is at one of the highest points in Cappadocia - under Uchisar castle. So the view is wonderful. It is a peaceful spot just outside of the main tourist attractions. We stayed here as well as at another hotel in Urgup. I highly recommend staying in Uchisar because the elevation of the hotels here is great.
The pool is cold (mid-June) and clearly not heated. It is a small pool area and I doubt highly utilized. Our kids went in for about 10 minutes before the temperature forced them out. But you aren't in Cappadocia to lounge around a pool for a week so this didn't bother us.
While we were here as a family and there were other families around who were treated wonderfully, I'd say this place is better suited to couples. It is romantic. Kids loved the rooms, turtle garden (seven or eight turtles living there that they could feed), etc. Regardless, I would tend to say that this is a couples spot.
