“We really liked this hotel”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

Staying in a cave hotel was a treat.
This one is in a good location, walk down the hill to town or up the hill to a GREAT view.
There is a VERY nice outside seating area with a wonderful view of the town.
We stayed in room #1 which I would recommend. It is really two rooms, very private and quiet.
As it seems with all hotels in turkey, breakfast was excellent and made to order.
The staff was helpful in providing maps and suggestions.
We had daily room service and had laundry done here.
As a splurge, we did the hot-air ballon ride arranged by the hotel. I definitly would recommend that...just spend the money for the 1 hr. ride in a "small basket" and do it!
Also as an aside, there is a miserably named resturant "Just About" (that's the name, right across the street. It is very good...don't miss it because of the name!

We were lucky to find this hotel to stay. The place is very convenient to go eveywhere in town and the hosts here are very friendly and helpful. They also provides all kind of activities for your options, but they will not let you feel stressful. While our staying, there was a Japanese TV company to come here to firm to introduce this hotel to Japanese. For me, the most unforgetable is their breakfast Menu - 5 main dishes (scrambled eggs, boiled egg, fried egg, Franch toasts and toasts). I will go there for sure. All I want to say is "make yourself at home" in Dervish Cave.

Room Tip: "the room is on the top is great and you can enjoy the nice view"

Good location, easy walk to restaurants and market shops. The cave rooms well set out, clean and comfortable.
Host and family always helpful and organised our day tours and balloon flight. Also arranged the shuttle from and to the airport. No language problems.
Breakfasts good with a great choice and plenty of it.
It is a unique place and value for money.

The stay in Dervish Cave House was beyond words and expectations. An unique cave room wth fairy chimney, a great view from hotel, a quiet atmosphere within the cave house hightlighted our days in Cappadocia. More attractively to travellers was the friendly staff who provided handy helps and great suggestions about outdoor activities in Cappadocia. We enjoyed our stay with good sleep, yummy breakfast and unforgettable hot air balloon fly arranged by the hotel. 10 out of 10 points we would like to recommand Dervish Cave House to travellers planning to visit Cappadocia, one of the best places to see from the sky.

Loved our stay at Dervish Cave. Great location in Goreme, a little up the hill from the town (town is small so super close but gives a great view). We stayed in one of the fairy chimney rooms which was really cool. The staff (family owned) is wonderful and goes out of their way to be helpful and make you feel at home. They organized our airport transfers (from Kayseri), a day tour (red tour - also highly recommend) and a turkish night dinner (was fun but wasn't for us). Internet works amazingly well even in the cave rooms. Amazing value for the price and highly recommend to other travelers!!

On a side note for those considering a stop in Cappadocia while in Turkey I couldn't recommend more. We weren't sure about making a stop here but it ended up being one of our favorite parts of our Turkey trip. Truly a unique and wonderful place!!

Dervish Cave exceeded our expectations in all areas! Beautiful rooms and conveniently located. Hosts are very welcoming and helpfull, they organised some great activities for us (hiking, horse riding, quad bike adventure, hot air balloon). Action packed but also extremely relaxing. Yummy breakfast as well. We will be visiting this lovely part of the world again!

The hotel is very well located in Göreme. The owner of the place and the staff is very helpful friendly. This is really magic to wake up in the morning with the Hot Ail Ballon sound flying over our head early in the morning. I stronlgy recommand the place if you wish to relax and enjoy your holiday in this place.
