The staff was very friendly. The room was spacious and clean. Ideal for a true Cappadocia experience. I especially like the nostalgic Turkish music playing in the background. Mr. Daghan was a wonderful host.

"It seems rooms on all levels are nice. Steps are used to go all levels from 1 & above but manageable task."
"We stayed in the Roller nest Rm 104 a very comfortable large room with a lower level bath room with spa. The room has a four place dinning table and a cane setting with coffee table to relax after a long day. The bed was a joy to sleep in a very comfortable king size bed, we would recommend when you are in Cappadocia Turkey you stay at the Tafoni Houses Cave Hotel."
