Great place for a vacation. Dervish Cave House is located in the heart for Gerome, 5 minutes walk from the shopping and eating parts of the town. Also, if you want to enjoy a panoramic view of the Goreme, just walk up the hill from the hotel for 5 minutes and there is the entire valley open in front of you leading to some good hiking trails with caves and fairy chimneys. The hotel is family owned with nice big comfortable airconditioned rooms with private en-suite bathrooms. To add to the charm, the rooms are in a natural cave. My room had a flat screen TV and a fireplace. My bathroom had a standup shower as well as a jetted tub, something you see in high end hotels.
Internet is complementary and for those of us who travel without a laptop, there is a computer at the reception which is for the guests to use.
Breakfast is complementary with traditional Turkish breakfast as well as hot breakfast including eggs served in a variety of forms as well as French toast (all made fresh when you ask for them), along with tea and coffee. You can have breakfast in the dining room or the lawn that has a great view of the town and the caves.
Cemal (pronounced Jemal in English) is the owner of the place and happens to be an excellent hot air balloon pilot as well. Very cordial and a true gentleman, he was a great resource for me. Rest of the hotel staff is very friendly and accomodating as well. They arranged the shuttle to and from Kayseri airport for me along with the hot air balloon ride and a sightseeing tour, all with pick up and drop off at the hotel. Cemal drove myself and some other hotel guests to the Whirling Dervish ceremony and waited outside for an hour for us to get done before driving us back - you don't get that kind of personal attention at a lot of places.
For me, all I had to do was reach Kayseri and from there onwards I was pampered till my flight back.
I had a great time during my stay at Dervish Cave House and would definitely stay there the next time I go to Goreme. I recommend Dervish Cave House with all the confidence that your stay will be as pleasant as mine.
