“Excellent accommodation in Goreme, Cappadocia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

Booked accommodation at Dervish Cave House, recommended by friends. Made booking telephonically and spoke to the manager Ibo. Excellent, efficient service and an unforgettable experience!

Warm welcome on arrival and was upgraded to a cave suite. Very spacious and tastefully furnished. Like home away from home!

Centrally located in the centre of Goreme. Ibo and his team went out of their way to make it an unforgettable weekend! I can highly recommend Dervish Cave House!!!

Room Tip: All cave rooms are great and special! Stayed in suite 21!!!

I really enjoyed my stay in Cappadocia and a large part of it was my stay at Dervish Cave House. The breakfast is included (a delicious an abundant buffet with so much variation). the staff was great. Ibo, who runs the place with his two cousins is very friendly and organizes everything for you in terms of tours and what to do around Cappadocia for great values as well. the rooms were very, very clean. I even had a bathtub in my room. there are tv's air conditioner, heating and a hairdryer. The best part is the location of the hotel. Stay here!

You must stay here!!

Everything the other reviewers wrote is true - the cave rooms at Dervish were spacious and beautiful, the breakfast buffet was delicious and plentiful, the staff were all very friendly and helpful (and offered us tea any time we wanted), and they helped us organize everything during our stay (airpot transport, Green tour, hot air balloon ride - which were all amazing!). We really enjoyed hanging out with Ibrahim and Cemal after a long day out touring - it felt like coming back home and talking to friends!

I want to add that Ibrahim truly went the extra mile for us. My friend left her passport in the room and didn't realize it was missing until we were already on the shuttle to the airport. We called Ibrahim and he quickly rushed to the room and found it, and offered to drive to Kayseri airport (50 min away) to deliver it!! There wasn't enough time, though, and he mailed it right away to our next guesthouse. He was very thorough and followed through to make sure we received it, which really speaks to how wonderful he and the rest of the staff are!

And did I mention he is also a balloon pilot?? Try to fly with him if you can!

Besides the excellent room, the beautiful terrace, the amazing views of goreme, the delicious breakfast, you will find here the nicest people ever. The managers - Ibrahim and his cousin - are very sweet and helpfully people. They have been very nice to us even before we arrived. They helped us to organize the whole trip to cappadocia suggesting companies for the balloon flight, arranging our airport shuttle and so on by email. At all times they made sure we were ok and they were ready to make the most of our time here. Ibrahim even gave us a free ride to see the rose valley. Isn't it nice?!

Room Tip: I have stayed in number 1. Great with a hot tube.

I and my boyfriend stayed at the Dervish Cave House for one night and we had a great time. The cave room was cosy and comfortable, warm with a Jacuzzi - perfect after spending a day cycling around!
But most importantly, the service was excellent, the hotel staff provided for all our needs: plentiful breakfast, they showed us things to do and visit, they booked tickets for our daily tour and for our return trip and they even gave us a lift to the bus stop. Highly recommended!

What a great hotel! We stayed in a cave room, which was an excellent choice. It was big and warm. In the morning we could have our cup of coffee, check e-mails and just relax on the patio with great views of Capadoccia valleys. Breakfast was great and with varied extra items they could cook upon request. Hotel is located within walking distance from the Goreme's center, which allowed us to walk to restaurants, shipping, and do some site sighting on our own. All the staff were helpful and friendly, especially the manager, Ibo (Ibrahim Dasdeler) who spent extra time with us helping plan our days in Goreme. He patiently explained all kinds of different available activities, talked about Capadoccian culture, etc, etc. He even gave my girlfriend a ride to the Turkish bath in town, joined us for a show and drove us back from it! We were completely satisfied with the hotel amenities and location, but it was the staff (Ibo and his cousins Dervish and Jamal and Cemal) who really made it special for us. That made all the difference for us. We're so glad we picked Dervish Cave House out of alllll the hotels in Capadoccia. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone!
