We spent three nights here in May and had an absolutely fantastic time! What a unique place and a definite must on any Turkey tour! The hotel was very comfortable - we stayed in a Junior Suite in room 17 and found the room to be of adequate size - bathroom small but manageable. Room opened up into a terrace where you could sit and enjoy the early mornings (hot air balloons around) and the late evenings (sunsets are beautiful). Breakfast was nice with a good selection - we didnot have any dinners at the hotel. We did have a massage and a turkish bath and found the therapists to be great - especially after 4 hours of quad biking.
We booked the "Discover Cappadocia" full day tour and the 4 hour quad biking through the hotel and really enjoyed both - highly recommend the quad biking as it is a great way to explore this unique area.
Restuarants that I can recommend in this area include Sedan and the SOS restuarant - views from the SOS restauarant are absolutely fantastic and meals were well-priced.
Lastly, I have to recommend that when staying at this hotel that you book the transfers through the hotel. Our flight was delayed on the day that we were due to arrive (8 hour delay due to strike action) and when we finially did get to the Kayseri airport, we just climbed into the closest taxi and didnot think that the price would be very different from that quoted by Kelebek. Much to our suprise, when we got to the hotel, the taxi driver asked for TL 220 (EUR 110) verus the EUR 30 for two people quoted by the hotel. The staff at Kelebek were also surprised and argued with the taxi driver on our behalf and managed to get the fare down to TL 150 - thanks again Apo!!!!
Also, we had a very early check-out - picked up at 7:00am but we still managed to have breakfast at the hotel. People at other hotels complained that they didnot get breakfast but at Kelebek, the normal breakfast spread was available with 1 staff member assisting with coffee, etc.
Al in all - a great stay at this fantastic hotel!
