This is the place you want to pick as your home base when visiting Cappadocia. It is a superb establishment, owned and managed by a warm and caring duo of father - daughter and it is located in the most charming (and less "touristy") of the towns of Cappadocia.
The rooms are splendid and luxurious and as others have noted -- huge! We were in room 209 -- a lovely combination of cave and brightly windowed mansion-living room, with views to die for. In February, it can be quite cold, but the rooms were always warm -- so warm in fact that we turned off the heat in the sleeping area. Everything can be perfectly adjusted to your liking.
The furnishings are exactly right, the bed -- comfortable to a fault (you wont want to get up!), the breakfast -- eggs prepared to your taste plus a buffet of delicacies. I have nothing but praise for this establishment and would have given it 5-plus ratings even without the additional benefit of having had Gamze and her father as our hosts. But I must say, their caring, compassionate, enormously helpful demeanor will stay with us for the rest of our travel days (and we travel constantly, year round). My partner and I went hiking in one of the more remote valleys of Cappadocia (we are avid hikers). It's empty there now and quite unexpectedly we encountered some dogs out for a lark. This is rare, but it has taught us to walk with sticks, just in case, in the future! One of the dogs managed to nip my partner and so we were slated to do a run to the clinic. Gamze was a saint. She orchestrated everything for us. We were so well taken care of that what could have put a damper on our trip was hardly a big deal. And, wanting to leave us with a good memory of Cappadocia, she spent the rest of the day with us, showing off some of the special corners of the valley. She was a true friend and we will never forget her kindness.
Again, Cappadocia is magical and the Fresco Cave is a five star experience and then some! Beautiful hotel, lovely, caring people. Absolutely the best!
