Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Though we stayed for 1 night but our stay was excellent . Nice , friendly , homely atmosphere bundled with excellent service & helpfulness of Yasemin ! We are vegeterians & had a chance to make our snack in the kitchen which everyone ( other guests ) also liked . Met few friendly couples there . Had a great time . Wished our stay was longer !

Room Tip: Since the Hotel was full ,didn't had much choice !

We arrived in Urgup by car with another couple who were our travel partners throughout Turkey. The street to our booked hotel, Esbelli Evi, was fairly easy to find, but we had some trouble finding the hotel itself (very small sign next to an old, closed wooden door!). We had booked standard rooms, but Yasemin in the hotel office upgraded us to deluxe rooms. Not sure why, but we didn’t complain! The upgraded rooms (actually “suites”) were spectacular! Our suite actually consisted of three separate rooms on three different levels. Although it’s not a large hotel, navigating the Esbelli Evi complex nevertheless took me a couple days before I figured out how to get to the breakfast terrace without getting lost. Breakfast was a daily highlight, with a beautiful view of the surroundings (and fresh-squeezed orange juice!). Wi-fi was free with a good signal. A wonderful place.

Unfortunately for us, we were involved in a car accident outside of Urgup that put one of our travel partners in the hospital in Nevsehir for three days. Yasemin was very good about visiting them and taking my wife and I along to the hospital. The accident, of course, altered the travel plans of my wife and I for the rest of the trip. However, Mr. Ersoz, the owner, was extremely helpful in arranging bus and plane reservations, and extending the use of the hotel car and driver for us to pick up the tickets at a travel agency and bus station, all in a period of about 45 minutes. We highly recommend Esbelli Evi Hotel in Urgup to anyone visiting Cappadocia. We also highly recommend a sunrise balloon ride (a little pricey, but then how many times will you visit Cappadocia in your lifetime?) over Goreme, just a few kilometers away from Urgup.

I stayed as Esbelli Evi in August 2012 with my husband and two teenagers. Right form my initial email contact, this place offered the best service that we experienced in Turkey. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a larger suite than we had booked. Every day Yasemine recommended restaurants and made dinner reservations for us, none of which disappointed. She also negotiated and booked a driver for us one day to tour the sights and neighboring towns. Yasemin even found jackets for the 4 of us to wear as we were inadequately prepared for the temperatures on our hot air balloon ride. The room was clean and memorable and the fridge was full of cold beer and soft drinks. The breakfasts were fabulous and the outdoor sitting area really a treat.

We stayed in the coloredband cave suite, and it could not have been nicer. There are a ton of cave hotels in this area, but a couple of things stood out. The management (Yasemin, and everyone else working there) make it their personal business to set you up on tours and enjoy the area. If you go there with complete plans, or no plans, they can help you plan your time and arrange everything. Dinners, ballon rides, van rides, day tours, etc. they want you to enjoy the area and will do everything to help

Great breakfasts on the deck overlooking the valley in the AM. Bees are a problem in the area, but they put out small smoking platters to discourage them.

Location is perfect for anything you want to do; walking to the town for restaurants/shopping and day trips all over the area.

I would highly recommend this hotel to any first or multiple time visitors to the area.

Room Tip: We loved the colored band suite, but all the rooms here seemed nice

Beautiful family cave suite. Gorgeous furnishings and bathroom. Love the relaxed vibe and the helpful staff. Did I mention breakfast was delicious? We had yummy omelets with Turkish breakfast. All very good.

We stayed here in July (two adults and two children) in the Family Cave Suite. It was much bigger than I had realized, a true apartment with separate living arrangements (bedrooms, sitting area, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, terrace) simply and beautifully decorated. We stayed three nights and everyone enjoyed it, the staff were very nice, providing excursion information and arranging for a hot air balloon ride (a must). Depending on the time of year, I would not return with children. It was very hot when we visited and though we were able to have access to a pool nearby, if children were traveling with us, I would book a hotel with pool on site.

Stayed here for 3 nights and in cappadocia and it was great. The rooms were excellent and its a very pretty property and a very quite and peaceful location....

We were made so comfortable and it felt just like home...all thanks to Yasemin....She is the most helpful Manager i have ever come across at any hotel anywhere and also a very good human being....

We booked a balloon ride on our own but she helped us upgrade it without us even knowing....we found out once we got to the balloon that she had arranged our upgrade... ..(If any of you plan to book a balloon ride i recommend doing it through the hotel cause they get you a better deal.)

We got to the hotel by a Taxi which was an error on our part as we dint check with Yasemin before getting there...cost us nearly 200 tyl....on our return she arranged a shuttle for us...cost us 20tyl a head....thats a huge saving...

The have a good breakfast...Several restaurants around the hotel...

we were with friends who had a baby and the hotel let us use their kitchen for whatever we needed ...all in all they treat you like family and make you feel like home.

Yasemin if you read this..thanks once again for making our stay so comfortable.
