4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

Ufuk pension is totally worth staying just for the staff. It is right at the heart of goreme - which is a compact village anyway.
The highlight of our trip was how Orhan helped us plan our whole visit. He arranged for a car rental for a cheap price + arranged pickup from Kayseri airport + setup a very cheap balloon ride and booked bus tickets onto pamukkale
I am.not giving this a 5 stars mainly because I was expecting a cave room - but their family rooms are not :(. Other than that, the breakfast is traditional Turkish and hearty. Staff super helpful and friendly - always greet you with a cup of tea or coffee - no matter what time of the day :). Its like visiting family.
Strongly recommend - but pick a cave room

We arrived at 5am after a rough overnight bus and were invited into reception by a young guy working there. He was still sleeping but welcomed us in to get warm by the fire and have a hot cup of coffee as the hot-air balloons lit up the dark sky - it was amazing.
Orhan arrived shortly after and cooked us up a nice breakfast (which was unexpected) and showed us to our room (well before check-in time).
He helped us organise hot-air ballooning with a good company and gave us lots of information about free activities nearby. Excellent location - 50 metres from restaurants/shops.
We enjoyed hanging out and chatting with him in reception throughout our stay. He has very good English.
The room was clean and warm. I recommend it!

The price for a single was incrediblly reasonable considering the location of the pension, breakfast, free tea and coffee, free wi-fi, parking, spotless clean rooms with equally clean attached toilet and shower and with central gas heating. The manager speaks excelent English and will gladly organise an itinerary for your stay. Very suitable for the budget traveler.

Room Tip: Go for the smaller rooms in autumn/winter as they are easier to heat.

There were many little disappointments that did not make our stay at Ufuk so pleasant. First, there was a horrible smell that came from the toilet. The staff was kind enough to find us a new room, but still there was some unpleasant smells there too. The rooms are average, pretty small without any cachet. Finally we had some trouble with the price. The owner sent us the price for most of his activities, but once we got there everything was more expensive. We don't believe that people should not go to this hotel, but we were not completly satisfied.

Stayed here for three nights and it was very pleasant. The hotel is right in town and close to the rose and red valley as well as the goreme open air museum.

The owner was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean but quite small. The bathroom was miniature. The cost was not that cheap compared to other spots in Turkey.

Great wifi in public areas and there were really good lounging areas to relax in.

We stayed here with our family (with children) for 3 nights. The hosts (Faith) was amazing. He welcomed us warmly to the hotel with some nice tea and coffee. The room was great, clean and spacious. The surroundings at the hotel warm, very welcoming with lots of space to hang out and relax. They offered free breakfast, which was very nice. They also provided us with lots of great advice and helped us rent a car. From here, it was an easy walk to the Open Air Museum and to several hikes (Rose Valley, Love Valley, and Honey Valley). Goreme is a nice town to stay in, the natural beauty is stunning. You'll feel like family at this hostel. Definitely take some time to chat with the welcomong hosts. It's worth your time and a great way to connect with local people.
