We reached Cappadocia on a friends recommendation to visit the city and I booked Kayakapi Premium Caves on tripadvisor without any expectations based on certain reviews on the website. Having a 5 star expectation from the hotel was all me and my family expected.
Guess I was wrong. I would rate this hotel as a 7 star + property not only because it is one of the most beautiful cave hotels me and my family have visited but also one of the most warm hotels we have stayed in. From the moment when we reached the airport till the time we actually checked out our experience was just amazing. Miss Elvan (the relations manger at the hotel and also a great friend now) came to receive us personally at the airport and made our stay one of the most memorable. She helped us with everything from taxis, guides, food, shopping as well as gossips of the town and her family !! We all loved her being around us all the time.
The entire staff of the hotel was very welcoming and warm as well. They served us great food in the hotel and entertained us during breakfast and lunch hours with their jokes. They served us very well and made sure we were cormfotable in all ways.
The hotel is situated on the top of a majestic hill which overlooks the city. You can sit outside of your garden rooms and have a view of the entire countryside while sitting tea and enjoying with friends/family.
The hotel rooms are very spacious and comfortable with massive bathrooms and all amenities available with wifi in the rooms. Even though one is in such a secluded area of the world away from the hustle bustle of the big towns one is always made to feel at home because of the amazing decor and friendly atmosphere.
Moreover, we were also recommended to have a tour of the hot air ballon ride (Royal Air Ballon) by Miss Elvan which was a great expereince as one can see the entire area of Uchesar and beyond while in the air. It is a must do thing to do !!
All in all i would recommend this to anyone who is planning to visit Cappadocia. Do not even think of going anywhere else.
Miss pretty Elvan is the person you need to speak to and she will make your holiday the best you have ever had. She should be proud of working for such a premium hotel and we are proud that she is doing so well for herself.
Not to mention, the staff and in particular Miss Elvan helped us tremendously as me and my family got stuck in the Istanbul riots the day we checked out of Cappadocia and reached Istanbul (protests happening in Istanbul due to Gezi park construction project). She was a God sent gift to me and I cannot thank her enough the way she helped us out of that near death experience even after we had checked out of the hotel. Further, she told us about everything to do in Istanbul and the places to visit, eat and party !!! We had a great trip in Istanbul only because of her.
All in all, this trip of Turkey has been the best I have ever had without a doubt.
I recommend it to all (young and old, married or unmarried)
