Elkep Evi Cave Hotel
Ranked #40 of 66 Hotels in Urgup
Reviewed September 16, 2012

This was the the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed in. It was extremely romantic. Truly a one of a kind experience. Everyone needs to stay in a cave hotel once in their lives. My boyfriend surprised me with this room and it will be almost impossible to beat. The attention to detail was absolutely incredible. They thought of everything. The decor was perfect. We had wine and fruit waiting for us. They even had burned cds with all types of music for you to choose from. The private balcony was cozy and romantic. The service was impeccable!

Room Tip: Suite 102 was amazing!

What an unique experience. There is no point in staying in a traditional hotel when you can stay in an cave hotel. They work on every detail, room was perfect, service was great, I have no negative to say about this place. It's just 7-10 minutes away to Goreme, but Urgup town is cute too, with a lot of options. There's a lot of options of cave hotels in Cappadocia and we did a lot of research before booking this one, and with no doubt, we did great selection. Not to mention that the rates are cheap for what you receive. We booked the room 105, jacuzzi suite and it was beatufil. I recomend this place without a doubt.

Room Tip: Our room had a lot of plants on the balcony that from the outside you can even know that there's...

We visited the hotel on our honeymoon and found the place so comfortable with great hospitality of staffs. The staffs there spoke fluent English and offered us various service whenever we were in any sort of trouble. The room was exotic and quite comfortable. Excellent food, scenary, atmosphere, and service. Thanks to the manager and all. Look forward to visiting the hotel someday soon.

Elkep Evi is in Urgup which is near the open-air museum in Cappadocia so a convenient stop for tourists seeing the sites.

PROS
1. We got upgraded to the large room with a large master bed and 2 single beds. Very spacious but with all the modern conveniences (CD Player etc). The bathroom was charming.

2. Breakfasts here are fantastic with the freshest, juiciest apricots I've ever tried. It was a great meal and one of the best breakfasts I had in Turkey

CONS

a. The staff don't speak much English so bear that in mind if you need help trying to book onward travel or tours.

b. As you would expect with a cave hotel, its a little dark inside so more lighting would be useful

c. Its a little far from the town centre so if you want to walk into town for a meal be prepared for a long uphill walk.

Great hotel starting from the design, room size, staff and room service, it's new experience which you will not forget in the such cave hotel, there were tow minor issues with this hotel, first is the breakfast hall is very small and narrow, but although you can take the breakfast in the terrace, and the second thing is the that there is no television in the rooms which is the hotel style as staff told us ( traditional style).

We loved this little hide away. What a gem. The rooms were unique and comfortable. Perfect for lazing around and using as a base for the local sights.
Breakfast was simple and sufficient but what made this hotel was the staff. Forever attentive to your needs and questions. We hired our car and the balloon ride through the front desk after arrival and both were discounted and prompt in their service.
Make sure you venture up the hill behind the hotel. It's a very short stroll and the view along the ridge is unbelievable. You wouldn't know it was there unless you ventured up there.
We stayed 4 nights and didn't want to leave.
The town has a great local feel about it. We found that Han Ciragan was a great place for a feed. But over the area of Capadocia we used the lonely planet and the trip advisor APPS which were spot on for recommendations of places to eat.
If you hire a car organise to drop it off at the airport as it's only an extra $30 as opposed to about a $70 taxi or private pickup.

Room Tip: Each room is unique with views over the vally. We preferred the ground level room as it had a larger...

Staff is friendly; rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast.

It is at the top of the hill and away from the restaurants and markets. It is generally very quite.

There was a sewer smell outside..couldn't tell which hotel it belonged to.
Some sewer smell in bathroom from floor traps drying out.
