“Great hosts, great rooms, great vibe”
Reviewed June 7, 2011

we loved this place - the rooms were beautifully decorated, and the individual themes added to the flavour of the place. We stayed in a cave room which was divine - felt like a medieval movie scene, but with all the modern touches. The deck and the views were fabulous, and perfect to unwind after a long days sightseeing - they cat and dog just added to the at home vibe.

Urgup is the perfect place to base yourself for sightseeing - small and intimate, with not too much to see.

looking forward to going back.

I recently stayed for three nights at the Sacred House in Urgup, Cappadocia, Turkey. The hotel was beautiful, and the service was outstanding. The breakfasts were excellent. The staff to guest ratio was extraordinarily high (we were there on a Mon/Tues/Wed and were the only guests for the first 2 nights, while the hotel had a full staff complement running). We stayed in The Room of Antique Tiles. Huge bathroom, nicely decorated, dazzlingly clean. I was travelling with a friend and we had 2 beds in the room, which made it feel very cramped, but the space would be fine for a couple or a solo traveller. This particular room is, to be fair, the smallest and least expensive room in the hotel, and we had requested it. I peeked at several other rooms and could see that they were all lavishly decorated and were double, triple or even quadruple the size. Note that not all rooms have stand-up showers - all have luxury jaccuzzi-style tubs, some of which have a stand-up shower option. This hotel would be perfect for couples wanting a memorable hotel experience with a high standard of service. It is not an appropriate place for children, as most sitting areas are in nooks outside of the rooms, on patios, or in the hotel's main entry area. Ece and her husband, the owners, are young, hip, totally fluent in English, full of great ideas, and extremely accomodating.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this boutique hotel before moving on to the more tourist area of Goreme. What a great decision as Urgup was perfect for us to relax a bit and Sacred House was the perfect place to do that. Our room was available earlier than usual and seeing that we got there early we could check in. Ece was extremely hospital and we were even given a tour of the rooms that were not occuppied. The poppy seed cake upon arrival was just out of this world, as was the fresh lemonade. The food during dinner was also splendid and plentiful. I cant actually find the words to describe the rooms. Incredibly designed with attention to detail. I hope we can return in future

We spent three wonderful nights at the Sacred House in May. Cappadocia is amazing, and the Sacred House is the perfect base to use while visiting this mystical area. We loved everything about the hotel - the wonderful breakfasts (served either in the beautiful dining room or the great terrace), the music that surrounds you and the beautiful decor. We stayed in Bacchus Hideaway, and loved to retreat there after a day spent wandering through caves and churches. The hotel is in town, and we loved that Urgup was a "real town" with some very nice restaurants. We had a private dinner one night at Sacred House. The candle lit dining room with personal service and delicious food was a highlight of our 2 1/2 week trip to Turkey. We are already looking forward to returning to Sacred House - our big decision will be what room to stay in next time!

Sacred House is a hidden treasure in Urgup. You don't expect to find such a beautiful and charming place behind the wooden doors that lead to a narrow stone street. These doors separate the today's world and ancient times. This hotel represents the ancient times, it not only reminds you things about those times but it makes you believe that you actually live in that era. Its decoration is magnificient, everywhere from the entrance to the terrace is full of nice touches which complete the "ancient times" concept.
When you get in the room you smile happily because you immediately understand that the room is itself a different world again from the old times. Every room is decorated in a different way. They just show you the different part of the world or different life styles in those times. Very comfortable, very interesting and very very stylish. There are many many details within the room that you will love to investigate. We have stayed in the Old Chapel and I must admit that it has the best bathroom I have ever seen. Lighting is wonderful and as a consequence ambience is so nice that you don't want to leave the room.
Service quality is excellent, all the staff knows what they do. More importantly they do their best to make you feel comfortable, and they are successfull at it. Order a dinner at the Sacred House and enjoy your meal with a stylish serving. You must try it, be sure that you won't regret it.
To sum up I can say that Cappadocia is a very interesting and different world, but if you want to live the place and not just visit you better complement it with staying in the Sacred House. Staying at this hotel is as worthy as visiting Cappadocia.

Rooms very large, all done differently and were extremely beautiful. The food was excellent and the service unsurpassed. There are no elevators so if you have trouble walking stairs this would not be a good choice for you. There are only very larg bathtubs, no showers. Most have fireplaces and king beds. They are all very romantice and tastefully done with antiques. No phones or TV's in rooms but are in the beautiful lobby.
The owners, hosts, are wonderful people and make you feel as if you are part of the family.
