Fantastic, the hotel was lovely, very well restored and our room delightful. The owner Halil and his staff could not have been friendlier nor more helpful. The food was very good and excellent value for money compared with other restaurants in Urgup. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

If you want to stay somewhere a bit more upmarket and you can cope without the necessity of staying in a fairy chimney, I can highly recommend this beautifully restored, former Ottoman house. Its myriad of hidden nooks and terraces (for a reflective beer or peaceful cay) have wonderful views over the rooftops to the cave-houses and promontories nearby.
The decor is traditional stone with ornate carvings and there is an authentic feel to the historic details.
I stayed for three nights with my sister in April - before the hot weather really begins and the room was perfectly cosy with the heating on in the evening. However, I can well imagine how lush and cool it will feel in the hot months, as the thick stone walls keep the dry heat at bay.
Breakfast is a delicious Turkish buffet, supplemented with omelettes (menemen) to order and the traditional gozleme (pancake) stove, complete with head-scarved teze awaiting your choice.
It's a 5 minute walk down the hill into the quaint town centre (and a 10 minute, slightly more fatiguing climb back), where all the local amenities can be found within 200m of each other.
I would recommend this for any sort of group - there were two families staying at the same time as us, we had a family room with three single beds and there were also several couples who seemed to be enjoying the romantic setting.

We had heard, read about and finally took a deep breadth and headed to Cappadocia, wonderland of cave living and unique formations at display by nature.
In general temperature in Cappadocia is very high, therefore reserved only for two nights and on arrival found a bit chilly (day temp. around 20-25c), need warm clothing in the evening. Urgup is a small town for a base to explore all around.
Hotel had 14 rooms in all, we got a double room which is only original Cave-room. Very comfortable inside, living room plus a bedroom with one double and a single beds, modern bathroom. However, we had to climb 17 uneven steps up and down, to the dinning room and additional 13 steps to go out. Good exercise if you have strong knees. Our grand children had no problem, they were having fun. Staff was courteous and helpful. Dinner was excellent with large variety of salads, fruits and freshly baked bread in front of the guests, plus choice of meat dishes all very reasonably priced.

Room Tip: If you cannot take stairs, this hotel is not for you.

We stayed for few nights during the winter Family trip in Cappadocia. Such hotel is giving you a real scence of this magic area. Excellent rooms with everything you need, decorated with love and attention. Staff was very good and polite, breakfast with not big selection but with all you need. Children love the place and same with parents. Well done!

Ürgüp is a small town where you can find many attraction. Rich variety of Restaurant and Bars.
Hotel located very close to the center. Renovated with traditional style of Cappadocian architect.
We stay just two night there. Room size enough for family with a child. Each room has a unique name. Breakfast was surprised us with delicious taste of Turkish pastry. Many choice of fruite jam's.

Room Tip: Ask for a cave style deluxe room. You feel and like it for sure.

Only able to stay 2 nights wish it would have been more. Rooms with everything you could want and very clean but yet had the cozy "bed and breakfast" decor and feeling to them. I had a hard time remembering the rooms were in the rocks/cave. Fine dining or something simple if you wished and well worth the price. Everything from the rooftop view, the perfectly landscaped garden and the close proximity to the downtown shopping and sites makes this hotel an excellent choice.

My husband and I stayed as part of a group. The room was fantastic, lovely decor and a large terrace where we dried our washing. The food was excellent - by the time I waded through the appetisers (usually about 20 - cold buffet style) I had no room for my main. They also did exquisite desserts with one of our group having chocolate blancmange 4 nights. A great stay and highly recommended.
