Reviewed December 2, 2009

Staying at Yunak Evleri was one of the main highlights of my vacations in Turkey. A unique hotel at a very special place which is Cappadocia. Everything at the Yunak is just perfect and unforgetable: the extremely comfortable and charming cave rooms, the cozy atmosphere of a high quality restaurant, a friendly staff committed with making your stay the most pleasant as possible, under the leadership of the young gentleman Abdullah. Since I was back to Rio, I have recommended all my friends a tour of Turkey with a stay in the Yunak Evleri. It is a must.

This is one of the truly memorable experience my husband and I have of this tour is to stay in a beautiful, luxurious with impeccable service cave hotel, also our first time to do so. The rooms are spacious that have the proper temperature from the natural insulation of the rock caves. The bed was very comfortable and it was a king size one. The amenities and toiletries were sufficient. They even have white cotton backed slippers. The bathroom was a good size with a stand-up shower and was spic and span clean. The view was truly breathtaking, awesome and spectacular. All my friends were asking us details about this cave hotel. The staff were friendly and quick to respond to other needs. For us, it was a perfect stay at Yunak Evleri. Undoubtedly, when given the opportunity to visit Urgup again, we definitely would stay at Yunak Evleri again.

I'm Turkish and decided to go to Kapadokya while in Turkey this summer. My cousin said her brother (my cuz too) knew the owner of a cool hotel called Yunak Evleri there and friends he had just sent there raved about it. So he gave me their email and within 2 days I was set. Due to the short notice, they were already booked for my first night. But they set me up, at no extra cost, for a night at a neighboring hotel (Elkep - also very nice). And they pick you up from the airport (Kayseri and Nevsehir).

The manager, Hussein bey, and his staff were fantastic and friendly. They arranged all of my excursions, including the requisite hot air balloon ride. It seemed this was the treatment that everyone got, not just me.

Great outdoor breakfast with cool views. Large rooms and baths (at least mine was). Also try the wineries in town.

I'll agree, this is a most unique hotel we have ever stayed in. The setting is fantastic, the service is even better. The whole area is something not to be missed. There is a restaurant right down on the street in front of the hotel called Ziggy's. Make sure you make reservations so you don't miss out on a great meal. The resturant at the hotel is also superb. All in all I can see why this spot gets the highest ratings.

We arrived to Yunak Evleri after a long day travelling from Bodrum via Istanbul. Both of us were wondering if making the long trip to Cappadocia at the end of our 10 day holiday was "worth it". Within minutes of arriving at the hotel, we were treated like royalty and shown to a suite (an upgrade) that was extremely spacious yet cozy- culturally relevant yet up to date. We felt like we won the lottery and were in a Four Season Hotel that happened to be in a cave! Kind of mind blowing. The entire staff was over the top friendly and accomodating;setting us up with a fabulous balloon ride and day touring the chimney rocks and underground cities which also are mind blowing. I can not say enough about this place and folks that run it;especially Abdullah.

We were a family of four (kids 8&12) and stayed in a suite for 2 nights. Even before we arrived, the staff was soooo helpful. They always responded quickly to any questions about the hotel, tours and Cappadocia in general.

Once we arrived, I knew we had made the perfect choice. Even after seeing the pictures on the internet many times, we were amazed by the setting and the room. Our cave suite was immaculately clean, very large and had wonderful views from the balcony (we did have to walk up steps, if that is a problem, we were happy to get the exercise after all the good Turkish food we had been eating!!). The bed was big and comfortable and the bathroom was huge, with a big shower and a jaccuzi tub.

The manager, who greeted us immediatley upon arrival and took us inside for a drink, is extremely helpful, friendly and speaks perfect English. The entire staff was always very attentive and friendly. They all responded immediately to any inquiry or request.

There is a patio area with a fireplace to sit at night and enjoy the surroundings. And, there is a room with DVDs and a tv to watch them , a music room (our kids loved the DVD room), and two computers with internet access for free. There are two wonderful restaurants just down the hill from the hotel (not even a 2 minute walk), as well as a restaurant at the hotel. Breakfast is included, as is transportation to/from the airport for certain flights.

This is one of the most memorable places we have ever stayed in all our travels around the world. No matter how high your expectations, they will be exceeded!! I highly recommend this hotel!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Magical Serenity : Yunak Evleri Cappadocia In Cappadocia's magical landscape of fairy chimneys, in the ancient village of Urgup, is a unique cave hotel carved into a mountain cliff, the Yunak Evleri. This hotel includes 7 cave houses, 40 rooms dating back to the 5th and 6th centuries and a 19th century Greek Mansion. Yunak Evleri is an inspiring hotel - an ideal base for exploring Cappadocia's elaborate underground cities, hidden cavernous churches and enchanting rock terrain. A labyrinth of narrow passageways and curved stone stairways lead to unique rooms tastefully decorated in warm traditional style. These exceptional cave houses are renovated and decorated with care and in their own distinct style with strictly respecting the local character. The decor is elegant and personalized with beautiful hand-crafted furnishings and antiques. All rooms have private patios overlooking the Turkish Mesa. With 40 rooms, Yunak Evleri is small enough to be intimate, yet large enough to offer you privacy. Accommodations range from exotic luxury caves to multi-chamber deluxe suites, including family suites. One can find the signs of past times in each room which all have been decorated differently. The elegant decor is prominent wherever you lay your eyes on.Emperador marble floors, handcrafted lace curtains, antique chests and bedside tables, traditional bed covers, old brass bedsteads, old handcrafted writing desks , old kilim carpets and antique lighting have been chosen with care and with simplicity in mind. At the foot of the cliff stands the hotel's main lobby. Housed in a 19th century Greek mansion, the main building exudes a kind of sophisticated charm. Within the stone building, cozy meeting rooms provide a soothing atmosphere for lounging in the evening. Alongside a room with computer and wireless Internet connection, the music room has a wide variety of CDs you can borrow and the TV room is decked out in plush Turkish cushions with a view of the surrounding cliffs. There is a DVD room on the second floor decorated with local handmade pottery accessories, candles, and a lovely furnace. Evenings are characterized by sunset gatherings on soft upholstered Turkish pillows warmed by an outdoor fireplace. Candlelight dining is offered on the adjacent rooftop terrace. We serve local homemade foods for dinner and an open-buffet breakfast. Yunak Evleri opened its doors to its guests in 2000 and since then has hosted around 200,000 travellers from all regions of the world. Listed in various prominent guidebooks' top hotels lists, Yunak Evleri has created a peaceful balance between modern today and traditional past. With its convenient location in the center of Urgup, Yunak Evleri is a perfect base for daily excursions within Cappadocia. ... more   less
