Reviewed 14 July 2011

We spent 3 nights at the Dervish Cave House in June and had a wonderful time. The hotel organizes tours to see the main sites in the region as well as the Whirling Dervish Ceremony (disappointing), Turkish Hamam Bath (Fun experience!) and the Balloon Ride (A Must Do!). The staff was very friendly and had recommendations for where to buy a carpet and where to eat (SOS Restaurant has really good Pides and you get a 10% discount). If you book a tour with the hotel, you receive a free ride to/from the airport which helped us save some lira. Both Dervish and Cemal were very helpful in assisting us during our stay.

We stayed in Room 6 which isn't technically a cave room but the bathroom was. It was spacious for 3 people and clean. The pillows were a little hard for my liking. They even washed some of our clothes for free!

Our favorites in the area were the Goreme Open Air Museum, smoking a water pipe in the restaruant with bean bag chairs, Seten Restaurant (the lamb was delicious) and the hospitality of everyone we met.

What a unique experience sleeping in a cave! The kids especially enjoyed it.

We were picked up at the airport, which was very nice, and then greeted by Cemal, who gave us information about the whole area. He was so super helpful and kind, offering to drive us places and taking us Pigeon Valley for a hike. We did sign up with him for Hot Air ballooning and practically got a private tour! Would highly recommend it! The other staff members were friendly too. The location was just a short walk down the hill to the center of Goreme. Dervish Cave House has a lovely courtyard with many flowers and trees, high on a hill so it had a very pretty view, especially at sunset. Breakfast consisted of cereals, made-to order eggs, fruits, vegetables, meats, bread. We also had an early morning shuttle to the airport to catch, so they opened up the breakfast room early for us. It was a vey nice gesture.

The hotel arranged our pick-up from the airport so our arrival was hastel free. The staff all spoke English and happily answered any questions we had. They also had excellent advice for which tours were best and how to maximize our time in Cappadocia. A couple of times they drove us to the start of our hikes (completely free of charge). The Caves rooms themselves were nice and clean. I can't recommend the Dervish Cave House enough. When you call, ask for Cemal.

The hotel is very nice and well located. Hosts are welcoming and offering cool activities (hiking, hot air balloon). The horse riding tour was nice but could be improved by avoiding riding on the street. Excellent breakfast as well. If you ask for restaurant recommendation, they partner with the SOS Restaurant offering good prices and very good food.

Dervis and company were wonderful hosts during our 4 night stay this March. The rooms were clean, cool carved stone, and even had a jacuzzi tub. The location is quite central with a nice view of town. (Goreme is tiny so not sure about some reviewers who complained about a 5 minute walk up a hill from the town Center.) In addition to a fine breakfast and happy hour they were also very helpful in planning the day. On our last day they helped us plan a hike an even picked us up two towns over at the end of the day.

Can't go wrong with this place!

We stayed in this hotel for one night when our originally booked hotel had a plumbing issue. Our room was fantastic and the staff was very friendly. Our room was in a fairy.chimney that was really romantic and an awesome bathroom. The owners nephew even walked us to a restaurant so we wouldn't get lost. I highly recommend this hotel. Also if u walk to the top of the hill at 530am u can see a panoramic view with all he hot air balloons taking off at sunset!

We traveled to Turkey for our honeymoon and spent 5 days in Cappadocia in Dervish. It was such an awesome stay...they made our trip unforgettable....never been to a place where whenever we are stuck in something they provide us with. An umbrella.....a charger...medication.....prayer crapet.....
In addition to that....they know what tours would be special for you....we really enjoyed the green and red tour.....literally amazing
Our room was amazing as well.....Room# 7.....it's a cozy cave room with jacuzzi and a breathtaking view......and we had delicious breakfast everyday....
they know how to take good care of their guests and make them feel at home...
if we ever go back to Cappadocia....our home will definetly be Dervish Cave House.....thanx a lot Cemal and the rest of the crew
