Dervish Cave House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2010

Dervish Cave House gave us a great place to stay for our one night in Cappadocia. Our room was lovely (the deluxe two-twin-bed room with a jacuzzi bath) and the hotel is located right up a very steep street behind the local mosque--so the evening call to prayer was part of the atmosphere.

A short walk further up the road is a place where locals and tourists go to watch the sunset over the landforms and the town of Goreme.

Dervis, the owner of the hotel, just opened recently, and his English is getting better by the day. Our bountiful Turkish breakfast was served on the grassy terrace area.

I loved Dervish Cave House. We splashed out a bit in Goreme and spent more than our usual budget, and it was definitely worth it. The room was huge and beautifully decorated. It isn´t very old but has been made to look it, without leaving out any comforts. The bed was very comfy, the shower was brilliant as was the jacuzzi. The host was so helpful and friendly. The views from the garden over the fairy chimneys was fantastic. It´s a shame we were there in winter so it was too cold to sit outside, but the view from the dining room is also lovely. A choice of breakfasts was welcome too. I can´t say a bad word about this hotel.

We had a large room which slept four comfortably. TV and a lovely jacuzzi bath and walk in shower. The location was great for getting around and walking. We booked a tour which picked us up at the hotel. Dervish recommended a couple of restaurants which we enjoyed. Overall we had a great stay. Very quirky place, not to be missed. We flew into Kayseri from Izmir which was very cheap and got a mini bus to Goreme.

We went to Dervish House for 3 days short holiday, we are living in İzmir/Turkey and it was our first visit to Cappadocia region. For the hotel we didnt have any idea but we were really surprised. Room is in the big rock, very fantastic and very big, very clean, totally different atmosphere than normal hotel, there are not to many room only 6-7 I think, staff is very friendly, for breakfeast you dont have to many choice but foods are delicious, hotel is located only 5 minute walk to Goreme center and 20 minutes to open air museum. A place to stay in Goreme

This review comes much later than our visit but then Their hospitality deserves recommendation and appreciation.
we were looked after v well esp by Cemal ,he took extra efforts to organise things for us since we were wth a small kid.v flexible and genuine suggestions..the room was nice ,loved the heating esp in the bathrooms.
Cemal made extra efforts to plan our days and would drop us to near by places if he could.v courteous.
the breakfast is great too..they let us use their kitchen for preparing meals for our 1.5yr old daughter..
I dnt think we cudve made a better choice in cappadocia..

we LOVED this hotel! it was very beautiful, stunning views, perfect location for exploring Goreme and just a few minutes walk behind the hotel is stunning valley full of rock formations. The room was absolutely gorgeous and really tastefully done, plus the room had a lovely spacious bathroom and jacuzzi bath. Compared to Istanbul the prices are very reasonable. There is a good choice for breakfast, the host wasnt as super-helpful as i'd expected due to previous reviews on this site, but we had a great time and I couldnt fault them on anything. We were visting just before christmas so goreme was very quiet, and i expect it would be quite different with lots more people in the summer. We were a little worried in advance that it would be cold staying in a cave hotel, but it was very cosy and never cold. Overall though, would highly recommend!
