We spent two weeks in Turkey and stayed in all sorts of hotels from the most luxurious in Istanbul (for work) to Ürgüp Inn Cave Hotel, our hotel for 3 nights in Cappadocia. Ürgup Inn was probable the least fancy of all the hotels, yet I feel it was the one we got the most for our money. A small 7-room, family-owned, no-frills sort of inn, it was the quaintest and most delightful of all the places we stayed. Within a very short walk to the town center, the inn was well located as a point of departure for our excursions to some of the most fascinating landscapes and places I have ever encountered. The staff was friendly and helpful and we were made to feel at home as soon as we arrived. Breakfasts were filling and always-smiling Duran served them to us in the grapevine covered courtyard, although we could also have had breakfast on the second-floor terrace table next to our room. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable with heating/air conditioning and TV cable. No room service, no dining service, but none needed—there is a well supplied corner store and the restaurants are a 10 minute walk away. It seems that wireless internet is also able, but why on earth hook up to the real world when what you want is to escape from it? And this is the ideal place to escape to another time, another place, another era. Cappadocia means land of the beautiful horses in old Persian. Today people go for the beautiful and unique land formations and cave dwellings, but I for one have returned to the United States impressed by their beautiful people. Nowhere in all my travels have I encountered kinder, more charming human beings! Would I recommend this place? Absolutely!
