Elkep Evi Cave Hotel
Ranked #44 of 69 Hotels in Urgup
Reviewed May 27, 2011

We were very sure we wanted to stay in one the cave hotels while visiting Cappadocia. So we decided on none other that Elkep Evi cave hotel. This hotel was widely spread across couple of caves. No two rooms were alike in look and character. The rooms for families were had beds made in little cave niches with their own reading lights. The children in our group were thrilled seeing this. Each room had their outdoor seating which was perfect to enjoy a chat over a cup of tea while enjoying the views of Caves of Cappadocia surrounding us. The delicious local dishes were freshly prepared each day. The staff were very accomodating with our food preferences (majority vegetarians)

We loved our two nights in Urgup, Turkey. The cave hotel was a lot of fun and we would stay there again. It was a cave so its rustic but it was comfortable, peaceful, and a little bit of heaven during our visit to Turkey.

We stayed here with our 9 & 12 year old daughters. The kids loved the cave hotel. The room was so cool and VERY roomy. Two twin beds & a queen. Clean, updated bathroom.
The service from the managers at the front desk was excellent. They made reservations, checked on our flights, rental car return. Food was great for breakfast & dinner. Dinner was a set menu - no choice, but it was delicious. We like Urgup - felt much less touristy than Goreme. A little bit of a walk into town from the hotel, but we had a car. They have a few laptops in the cave lobby for guests.

An excellent, never before experience of actually staying in a cave hotel. Very well done luxorious rooms with an eye to detail, numerous quaint accessories all around the hotel. A few minutes walk to the main town. The pre ordered dinner at 20 Euro per head was expensive and not upto the mark, definitely not value for money. Everything else, breakfast included was good.

Cappadocia is famous for its cave hotels and this is a particularly beautiful one.
We had one of the jacuzzi rooms - a stunning cave room now lavishly decoarated. Upon arrival we found in the room a bottle of wine and some freshly-cut fruit, whcih was a lovely touch.
I do think it is not as good value for money compared to other hotels we stayed in in Turkey.... But only slightly.
Also, if you plan to go on one of the hot air baloons while in Cappadocia, I recommend not booking through the hotel (this or any other), you get much better rates by going straight to the travel agents in town - there are so many (and so also so many companies that offer this service)
Having said that, the hotel is stunning. The gentleman who i think is the owner (and whom we only met at check-out) is very gracious and welcoming and even offered us a free lift to our next hotel in Goreme. Breakfast is served on a terrace with beautiful views of Urgup.
The hotel is a bit of a walk (maybe 15 mins, return is uphill) from the centre of town, but if you like walking (like us) that is not a problem and it is very near Turasan (the second wine producer of Cappadocia) where you can go wine tasting. Recommended.

We stayed a couple nights at the Elkep Evi while touring Cappadoccia. Our cave was a very comfortable suite with a large bathroom and jacuzzi tub. The best part was a patio with overhanging grape vines that overlooked the valley. Great place to enjoy a glass of wine.
There is a patio restaurant for breakfast and dinner also with a view of the valley. In the morning we watched the hot air balloons float by. It is important to have a reservations for dinner. We would recommend making it at the time of booking otherwise there did not appear to be any other alternatives for dinner nearby.
The proprietor is very friendly and during a cooler evening meal provided pashmina to keep us warm while we ate.

We stayed for 2 nights and wished it were 6! The room (like the rest of the hotel) was fantastic: spacious, beautifully decorated right down to antiques and embroidered bed linen, everything was in perfect working order, lovely terrace with terrific view, totally quiet and best of all - a CD player with a stack of CDs - what more could one ask for? The standard of restoration/renovation of the building was sensitive and of a high standard, and sets an example for Cappadocia. An outstanding and extensive breakfast was served on the terrace with 270 deg view, inviting one to linger. We also had a good and reasonable dinner, with set meu of traditional Turkish food. The service all over was very professional but at the same time personal and friendly.

The only point to keep in mind is that it is quite far from the town centre and uphill, if one wanted to walk, but for that one has a location that is quiet and has a stunning view
