We stayed at this wonderful cave hotel in August and were very impressed with the accommodations. Suha,the owner, and Yasemin, the manager, were the perfect hosts. Suha, methodically mapping out places to visit in the vicinity, complete with multicolor markers and stars indicating great places to eat and explore. They were right on about all their recommendations, from restaurants (some walking distance, and others we drove to with a rented car), to small towns, to the underground cities (and which tour guide to use), to which company to use for an amazing balloon ride over Capadoccia,to which rural areas to hike through, where we encountered archeological ruins, a shepherd and his herd of about 200, and many other surprises. We had our 9 y.o. and 17 y.o. with us and the duplex cave we stayed in was quite spacious and beautiful and included a backyard. Our daughter slept in what was once the wine press, but now a comfortable, cozy sleeping nook. We had breakfast on the terrace overlooking Urgup, and were served Turkish coffee whenever we wanted it. Talking with Yasemin on the terrace about Turkish traditions and customs was so interesting, and one of the staff (I'm sorry I don't remember his name) brought some homemade Turkish baklava for Ramadan. We had the best time, thanks to the hotel and it's hosts!
