Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at Tafoni in May 2022 as part of our Turkey trip and had an amazing experience with this location.

The night we arrived, it was very late.. The hotel staff was so considerate that they kept food for us (a full meal and not just a few items) packaged beautifully.

The service we received was exceptional and extremely personalized right from the reception to the chef who took great efforts to accommodate our tastes. We loved our time here. Please do consider supporting this place.

It is very close to Goreme and the Open Air Museum. Other nice spots around are the panoramic spot 5 mins away.

My best friend and I were traveling from America and had an amazing stay at Tafoni. The beds were very comfortable and the room was always clean. What set this place apart was the amazing staff that made us feel like we were at a 5 star hotel by following through immediately on any request we had, small or large. The chef, Sadi, was absolutely incredible and makes the best traditional Turkish pizza. The waitress, Fatos, was amazing as well. the manager, Halit, spoke great English and was very attentive to us. Yusuf at the front desk was so kind. I am missing some others but truly every staff member we came into contact with treated us like family and with the utmost care. I would recommend this little gem to anyone coming to Cappadocia who is looking for a less touristy and more authentic Turkish experience. I will definitely be back! Thank you and best wishes to all the Tafoni staff!

Turkish hospitality is one of a kind. Hotel staff was super helpful with activities and arranging everything. Hotel was peaceful and it was the perfect place to celebrate our honeymoon. The room was so special and beautifully decorated. The bath and firepIace in our room was romantic and made the experience even better. I highly recommend to try the hotel’s restaurant. The breakfast was delicious with a lot of options. The dinner options were also awesome with good prices. The chef came to talk with us and made sure that we are happy and satisfied with our food. Tafoni houses was the perfect choice for honeymoon and made our vacation in Cappadocia unforgettable.

The best cave hotel in Ortahisar, Ürgüp. Every corner of this hotel has semi-antique traditional Turkish items with modern touches here and there. The rooms take your breath away. We stayed in two different rooms, 106 and 103, and loved them both.
The breakfast is a spread of all scrumptious Turkish tastes including the Turkish tea. It is more than enough.
We also had our dinners in the hotel restaurant because the food is delicious. Thanks to the chef.
Thanks to the friendly and helpful staff. Our stay was beyond our expectations.

The best stay I had in Turkey the are the most hospitable people and make you feel so welcome. I was on my own 22 to 24th May and stayed there. Chocolate fondue in my room spa and king size bed with fluffy pillows. It was just wonderful. The chef is the best he catered for my vegetarian taste which is hard in Turkey . Came and to see what I’d like and checked after if I enjoyed. Thank you to all the staff who made my stay memorable
