“Cute cave hotel, excellent staff”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for one night only. The staff were very helpful, as we arrived early in the morning from an overnight bus. The staff showed us to our room straight away and arranged some breakfast for us, even though it want included for this day.

The room and bathroom were clean. The hot water was fantastic! The room was heated and cosy. The breakfast is tradional Turkish breakfast. Location is good, is up the hill. But not at all far from restaurants and the bus station. We would stay here again and recommend to
Others.

I totally loved this accommodation that had a great location and amazing stuffs.
It was easy to go up to the hill which had a great view of balloons in the early morning and bus station and cafe also.
The shower room was new and so clean!
This place has great stuff who had incredible hospitality. They gave me break fast when I arrive here. And Ali took me hiking and supermarket which was very nice experience for me.
I very much appreciate the stuffs kindness. I totally recommend here!
コストパフォーマンスに優れた洞窟ホテルです。立地も良く、バルーンを眺めらる丘も、レストランが集まる場所もすぐ近くでした。スタッフの方が色々相談に乗ってくれ、4時間もハイキングに連れて行ってくれました。チップも受け取ってもらえず、この様なホスピタリティがある場所に泊まって、トルコに対する思い込みを覆されました。

I love this hotel cos of staff and very good location. Easy to find. Rooms are nice and clean however doors are needs to some oiling but loving this style. :) Showers are good room temperature was great. When woke up in the morning I really dont want to leave.
More tips; If you planning to stay in Konya never Ankara Hotel.
If you planning to stay in Pamukkale visit Karahayit as well (big market there day and night. Lots of restaurants more cheaper than Pamukkale.)
Dörtmevsim Hotel is good in Pamukkale.(Friendly)

Ali and his family were wonderful hosts who helped us with every single detail of our stay. They booked all of our tours and scheduled our shuttle to and from the airport. We got in late our first night and they were there to greet us as our shuttle arrived and more than willing to help us organize our agenda. Ali even took us around in his own car to show us several sites in the area. The hotel was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was a nice traditional Turkish-style breakfast. I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an affordable, comfortable stay close to the city center in Göreme with a great hospitable hotel staff.

The First Cave Hotel of Goreme (as given by the Owners), this cozy place actually gives you the feeling of staying inside a hotel. Slightly off the main road it is walking distance to the city centre and the top 5 rooms (out of a total of 10) are really nice and cozy. A really nice place for backpackers, my wife and I had a great three days stay thanks to the helpful and sweet people running it.

We spent one night at Melek Cave, we were the only guests. Our bedsheets hadn't been changed for a long time, we discovered several pubic hairs in the sheets ... Asked the host to change them immediately, he just shook them off and put them again on the beds .... Later we took a shower and realised the towels were dirty too ... Litterally with blood and yellow stains, also covered with pubic hairs ... Absolutely gross. In the morning, breakfast was supposed to be served at 8.30am, all lights were off at the réception and dining room, out host jumped of bed and started to hassle in the kitchen, but at that point we were late for out tour and so suspicious about the cleanliness of the place that we didn't feel like eating much.
In short, the place is not far from downtown, 5mn walk, the rooms are ok, but there's a feel of an abandonned hotel, the host was a teenager left to himself, and probably can't handle the place, even though he tries hard and apologized many times.
The place is just disgusting and unattended, don't go there !
