“Peaceful place”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

This hotel is perfectly situated on the edge of the town Goreme. Our room was clean but lacking some furniture and decorations. The bed had an uncomfortable mattress.
We really enjoyed the peaceful courtyard where the breakfast is served.
The owners have great knowledge of the area and will help you design any kind of trip one desires.

Whatever this hotel may lack in cleanliness, stable hot water, air conditioning, comfort, and reliable wi fi connection, it makes up in sheer charm, friendliness, and atmosphere. Both the setting of the hotel in beautiful Goreme and the design (the rooms are on one floor surrounding an open-air dining/resting area with trees) provides a very relaxing scenery. In addition, the staff are of the kind that makes you feel like you're not visiting a hotel, but rather some friend from way back. The backyard dog enhances this perception with enthusiastic yet friendly greetings everytime you enter the hotel area. You will probably also find yourself in interesting conversations with the other guests, as that is an inevitable result of the mood of the place.

In conclusion, this is the perfect hotel if you prefer the staff to heartily smile and chit-chat with you rather than maintain the hygiene and standard of the rooms. I can hardly see it possible to not feel welcome and relaxed at Peri Cave.

Room Tip: Ask for one of those in the fairy chimney!

I have only great things to say about the Peri Cave hotel! The stay there became the highlight of not only my time in Cappadocia, but of the Turkey trip overall! This is a very intimate, home-style hotel and pension in Goreme which is just the most magical place on earth! The hotel is very well located, on a main road just off the town centre, with easy walking to the town centre as well as the famed open air museum. The Hot air balloon pick up point is just opposite the road. There are excellent restaurants with a couple of minutes walk.
The cave rooms are utterly atmospheric. Nothing is very fancy or luxurious, but very very cosy, comfortable and unbelievably charming. There is hot water all the time and I think they have central heating, though it wasn'nt turned on (and was not needed) since it was warm weather.
The breakfast is basic, ample, healthy, tasty and very authentic "Turkish" without being over the top. It makes you feel like you're eating at a friend's home!
The most outstanding feature of this hotel is the courtyard terrace garden. I dont think I have seen such a charming place in even top range five star hotels! It is full of grape, olive and apricot trees tastefully clustered between which are arranged hammocks, tables and chairs where you can have breakfast, engage in conversation, use the free wifi on your laptop, play with 4 month old Sidney- the adorable hotel GSD- or just soak in the atmosphere with a nice book and relax! Its totally like staying at a villa in Greece or Spain!
But what sets this place apart from any other- and what you will take away with you- are the people! Murat and his team dont allow you to feel like you're in a hotel- they fool you into thinking its your own house!! They make everything so comfortable, so friendly, so easy that you wont want to leave! For example, when I had to go to the Whirling Dervishes performance Murat drove me up in his car and then went back to bring me back! I had a late flight out of Nevsehir and I left my room just in enough time for it to be cleaned before the other guests arrived...there was no military execution of the check out time. And before I left, he invited me for a home cooked pasta and watermelon meal with his friends before sending me off! Not just these, every step, every interaction is like you're staying with friends!
,I dont know for how long Murat and Mustafa and their people will be able to maintain this service approach, but if they can, this should be a must-stay place on your list!

Room Tip: i stayed in a cave room which was fantastic, but splurge on the fairy chimney room if u can!

The best hotel we stayed at in our entire trip to Turkey was Peri Cave Hotel in Goreme. Mustafa and Murat, the owners, were gracious hosts and they helped us to plan our entire itinerary in cappadocia. It helps that Murat is a balloon pilot ! It got us a discount with the balloon company which is just opposite the hotel. Our room was a 'cave room' and it was actually made in a fairy chimney, unlike many hotels which are called 'cave' hotels but are not original caves.

Room Tip: make sure you choose a 'Cave' room to get the true cappadocia experience !

We had an excellent stay at the Peri Cave. Do not hesitate in corresponding by email before your trip, they were very helpful in setting everything up. The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed just hanging out at times when we had a few extra hours. The rooms are fairly basic but have very comfortable beds! Walking distance to bus station, open air museum, walking trails in the valley.

What an amazing hotel! I recommend it strongly to all travellers looking for a place to stay in this area. We were welcomed warmly by Mustafa, the owner, who gave us some great tips and advice and really made us feel welcome.

The rooms are all very cosy and more than comfortable, and you get to experience staying in a fairy chimney.

The hotel is so close to all the shops and the main bus station, meaning you can walk around the town happily.
