We went with doubts about a cave hotel, especially being expensive compared to a normal hotel room.But once we reached and saw the place ,we knew we will not have the heart to leave this one.The owners and their dog and the staff all were so friendly and made us feel as if we were staying in our own home .I wish I owned such a place! Well, you will see pictures on the net and who they are(Arzu and Muammer) in the many reviews here.These people have a passion about the whole thing.They are not totally commercial minded ,though they run this as a business.There is an eye to detail in everything that we see or use.Beautifully done up place We lived in their best suite(probably) HOPE suite.Awesome .Large, as is seen on photo in their site on the net.We had the luxury of almost 3 rooms and a lovely bath But no doors(its a cave room).Every room has a window and is well ventilated The weather was so good being early October.As for the hosts, they were warm and as friendly as any old friend of ours could get.One morning we asked them for directions to go to Devrent valley and get us a taxi.After breakfast, Arzu told us amidst laughter that her husband will be our driver.We felt happy .At least he will understand english .We then had doubts on how much it will cost us.But we were in for a surprise when he dropped us off on his way to a neighbouring town and after finishing work, picked us up on his way back.NO CHARGES at all.
So sweet of them.Even if they had charged us normal taxi fare/guide charges, we would have paid.It was nice to stay here on another count,They both can converse in English and we could sit and chat over breakfast and tea.When we sat around enjoying their lovely garden,where pears were hanging in bunches,she used to give us tea with out charging again.That is why I am repeating that it is a passion for the husband -wife team, and not just a commercial venture.Lovely folks .We felt sad leaving them after 3 days .We have given their address to a few travel agents here in Muscat,the least we could do, by way of a THANK YOU
Excellently located, so near the main street/town circle, walking distance to restaurants in the evenings.We are vegetarians .As soon a s we checked- in, she gave us names of 3 best places to have vegetarian food.They were names we had noted down from the net before leaving Muscat too.They are very genuine people who have a love for the work they do.Wishing them all the very best Would recommend this place to one and all.Not expensive too for what we enjoy, in terms of proximity to town center, hospitality and the lovely garden area thrown open to all of us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- From the first beating of Angel Wings...The first time we saw this land of beautiful horses, Cappadocia, and its magical fairy chimneys, we knew we had to leave our own mark on this land that has been home to different civilizations for centuries. In Cappadocia nothing is as it seems. We lived this with each throw of the axe and with each stone that we lifted from the soil. As we removed hundreds of cubic meters of dirt from the garden and from the top of the main building, we discovered the remainders of centuries past. ... more less
