“One of the best!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Open just 6 months, this brand new, luxury hotel was a wonderful surprise, booked by my travel agent...imagine, a "cave hotel." Lovely accommodations. (I was surprised with an upgrade to a 3- room suite with a 10' x 12' hot tub!) A warm, welcoming, gracious staff. Good food in a pleasant-size dining room with an outdoor terrace. And a magnificent view of the countryside --- from the town of Urgup just below to the mountains in the distance. You can't go wrong! Especially if you sign up for an early morning hot air balloon ride...All in all, an unforgettable experience.

Room Tip: Ask for the suite right at the bottom of the steps to the dining terrace (rm 109?). It has its own l...

While I was looking for accommodation in the Cappadocia area I found it suspiciously curious that unlike some other establishments, Kayakapi Premium Caves had left the word “hotel” out of their name. I later found that this was with good reason, as Kayakapi had truly defined a new category of its own, one that offers much more than the mere accommodation of a hotel, but an experience of its own that will be long remembered.

I booked my family of five a 3 night stay in late September 2013, as the first part in our tour of southern Turkey, and from that moment we began to experience what I would call the ‘Kayakapi difference’. Greeted with an individualized welcome letter from Elvan of guest relations asking if they could fulfil any special requests, Kayakapi invested in us before we had even arrived.

As scheduled, we arrived at the Kayakapi property and drove the well laid out and signed private cobblestone laneway to the office where we were warmly greeted by guest relations. After a speedy and effortless check in we had our bags taken to our rooms without asking and were given a guided tour of the property by Mehmet. Along the way, we took in the spectacular view of the town of Urgup and surrounding area, which can be had from anywhere atop the hill on which Kayakapi is situated.

Mistakenly under the notion that nothing could surpass the gorgeous view we had just witnessed, we were introduced to our rooms and were quickly found to be wrong. Converse to other hotel experiences, the online pictures of these rooms did not do them justice. Both rooms were impeccably decorated to the finest detail, spotlessly clean and had every amenity that could reasonably be expected without losing the ‘cave experience’. From the quality linens, premium toiletries, and tasteful furnishings, everything was well laid out and intentionally planned.

Later that night, after a full day of great adventures in Cappadocia, also arranged by Kayakapi, we attended the restaurant. This area was again very well appointed and tastefully decorated to set a pleasant atmosphere for dining. Here we were greeted by Rüzgâr, who can only be described as the jewel in the Kayakapi crown. Ever attentive to individual needs Rüzgâr genuinely made my family feel as if we were his only customers, and served us delicious meals which had us returning every night throughout our stay.

Sadly our 3 night stay came to an end, and in so, not one negative word could be said from any member of my party. In fact staying at Kayakapi as the first stop on our trip had us woefully comparing Kayakapi to other hotels, which obviously had Kayakapi winning every time.

Kayakapi has truly set a new standard for other establishments to aspire to achieve.

I am in my two bedroom cave suite, and it is sweet! Hamam, fireplace,....the hotel arranged a tour for me today and a balloon ride for tomorrow. Service and communication prior to arrival was great, and I just booked this a couple of days ago! Hotel is a little remote from Urgup, but they have free shuttle service to town; and I expect it is going to be nice and quiet tonight.

When we arrived, we had welcome drinks, early check-in, complimentary red wine, and an awesome cave room (106).. My husband and I were surprised with little flowers sprinkled in our bedroom and pool area. Wifi was reliable everywhere! It was so clean and the bed was so comfortable. Room was insanely huge!
Service was awesome and Ms Elvan Kismet and one of the others in the reception (Male) helped us book a car rental for our next leg of the trip in Izmir. They were soooooo helpful !
We strongly recommend this place. If you'd like dinner close by, try Ziggy's..
Thanks, Kayakapi team!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 106 which was very spacious, had beds good for 4 people, and pool.. Conveniently...

The hotel has best location in Urgup overlooking the town and valley. The design of the room is one of the best I have ever seen - it well utilize the cave and convert it into a luxurious room. We have iPhone 5 audio port and Nespresso machine in the room. The staff are also friendly and helpful, they gave useful tips that makes our trip easier and pleasant. I would highly recommend this hotel.

LOVED this place! The location, view and history can't be beat if you go to Cappadocia.
The staff, especially Elvan at the front desk, made this trip so memorable! Thank you!
It's a UNESCO heritage site, so the preservation is impeccable.
The rooms are all old cave houses that have been converted to high end hotel suites. Each one is individual and unique.
They are named after the old owners of the caves.
Take a look around the actual hotel site, and you almost don't need to go anywhere else! There is so much history right there.
This hotel is top of the line in every respect.

Room Tip: Some rooms have private pools and Hamam's!

We booked this cave hotel for three nights for our honeymoon. We originally reserved a standard room but they upgraded us for free to a suite. Not only was the room huge and luxurious, but we also had our own terrace overlooking the city of Urgup. The breakfast was sumptuous as well. All in all it was truly a five-star experience.

The staff at the Manzara Bistro - Ruzgar and Ilyas - were extremely welcoming and professional and treated us like good friends. Elvan and the other hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful as well. Thank you all for making it such a wonderful experience for us.
