Coco Cave Hotel & Pension
Ranked #64 of 77 Goreme B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Here's the good: it's cheap and located close to the main street, restaurants, etc.

However, the room we stayed in was cold, damp, and smelled strongly of mildew. There were spots of mould on one of the bed sheets (fortunately there was a spare bed). Beds themselves were very uncomfortable - I think the springs were totally shot in the mattress I slept on. As mentioned in another review, the owner (or person who coordinated stays, it wasn't clear) was pushy about booking balloon tours through him, which we did not do. We found the people who worked there were not as friendly and helpful as the staff we had encountered at the other hostels and b&bs in Turkey.

Frankly, if we had done our research we could have found much nicer accommodations in Goreme for the same price. Would not recommend.

Pros:
- price
- room size
- breakfast included
- view from terrace

Cons:
- owner is very pushy with tours
- smelly bathroom
- old sheets, no fitted bottom sheet
- patchy wifi
- irregular cleaning (3 times in 3 weeks despite 'daily cleaning' as listed on website)
- breakfast was hit and miss

I have mixed feelings about my stay at Coco Cave. The price was very good and I was happy that it included breakfast (more on this later). The room was a good size with a large bathroom and there was a lovely view of the fairy chimneys from the terrace and our room.

The owner was extremely pushy about us booking our balloon tour through him. We stayed for three weeks and were asked daily about the tour, we kept telling him we’d prefer to book when the weather was good but he was quite insistent and seemed desperate to get our booking. We ended up going with someone offering better prices (80 euro pp with Balloon Turca).

We also overheard him being forceful with booking a Hammam trip on a family who were just checking in, the man said he was tired and maybe would go tomorrow but the owner kept insisting “no you are tired, you must go now, you will relax”. It was awkward, they had no way of saying no.

The bathroom had a terrible smell that made me nauseous, it was very damp (as to be expected from a cave). The bottom sheet on the bed was not fitted so I’d wake up laying on the grey mattress - gross!

The breakfast was a bit hit and miss. It wasn’t as pictured on booking.com but this could have been due to the fact that it was off-season. Some days we were given a good portion of yogurt, but a lot of the time we were given just the yogurt water that sits on the top of the container. We were also given boiled eggs that when cracked were only half cooked (whites still runny). Not sure if this is the way the turkish like their eggs though?

Wifi was very patchy but was a common problem throughout the town. Overall, it would have been fine for a short stay.

After spending 9 weeks in Turkey, I have now realised that we probably could have found somewhere better for the same price.

NOTE: there was a lot of construction going on in March/April 2014 so be wary if you're a light sleeper

I cannot recommend this place highly enough for there friendly approached and help. I really recommend this place. Don't expect that your gonna stay in 5 star. But it's an experience. Very clean Caves, nice view and very central. Bus station and travel agency's are just down the road.

Good location up on the hill overlooking town. Rooms are comfortable and relatively clean. Staff very helpful and friendly, always willing to help. All tours and activities can be booked through the hotel. Breakfast is plentiful. Don't expect a flash hotel though for the price Coco Cave is great. I would stay here again.

The coco has super nice rooms with bathroom for a very little price, the view from our window was great and the owner helped us with everything, he picked up us at the bus station right away when we arrived, gave us lot of tips about the area, helped us to go back to the bus station with our luggage, really great. The breackfast was great as well. We loved it!

We stayed there for 3 nights in summer 2009. Location, room, breakfast and service well worth of its price. I would come back there again.
