Kayakapi Premium Caves - Cappadocia
Ranked #2 of 69 Hotels in Urgup
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 9, 2013

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)

You will love it

We stayed at the Majestic Caves in Kayakapi hotel.. This must be one of the very best hotels there is anywhere.. The property is on very top of the hill.. That is a exclusive property in this area.. The view is fantastic.. and their houses (not rooms) are just breath taking.. The pictures on their website will tell you all about the rooms.. Just mind-blowingly luxurious and beautiful.. Their Guest Relations Manager - Elvan - was extremely warm and a treat to engage with in this remote area of Turkey.. Mehmet - their supervisor for the breakfast, was fantastic.. We had their package deal and did the Royal Air hot air balloon ride (owned by the same property owners).. Tolga took us around the bus to the balloon.. And Gokser was our flight pilot! This guy is just amazing.. Great pilot to ride with.. Did a special landing on the top of the truck.. Folks are just very friendly in Turkey.. But this staff took it to a whole new level.. The owner of this property - Mehmet - made a personal visit as we landed our hot air balloon. He was very gracious and wish him all the success in this new venture..

This is a new hotel! And absolutely recommend it.. It is very luxurious and breath-taking.. Make is awe inspiring when you consider that surrounding rural background and cave-like lifestyle.. I haven't seen other hotels in the area, but I doubt you can find better than this! A must see..

Room Tip: Check the rooms on the website.. We stayed in Room 102, which was fabulous.. We also had 105.. You c...

Great quality and services. This is for sure one of the top hotels in Urgup town. Staff are really helpful. If you like to stay in a clam place then this is your hotel. A car is needed all the time as its quite far from downtown (free shuttle is available however :))

I recently stayed in Kayakapi with my partner and my parents. From the moment we arrived, we knew this was a really special place. The hotel involves the renovation of an old hillside cave village, and the renovation is proceeding sensitively and beautifully. The hotel rooms are stunning, luxuriously and elegantly furnished and the rooms with pools and/or hamams are especially magnificent. Elvan and the other staff were so kind and welcoming and made our stay even more enjoyable and relaxing. We had a delicious evening meal and breakfast was also excellent. Overall, our stay in Kayakapi was one of the best and most memorable parts of our trip to Cappadocia and Turkey.
