We arrived 4 days ago and this was our first trip to Goreme. We immediately felt welcomed by the staff as we arrived ın the late evening. When shown our room it was more than I could dream of by way of romantic. The lighting were 4 candles (upgraded to electric - complete with bedside dimmer switches). Our cave room was cozy, clean and charming. Handmade Authentic Turkish rugs hung on the walls and some strewn neatly on the floors. We had a vıew of glimmerimg lights from the area whıch added to the ambiance. İt really was quiet as its a little ways from the busy tourists areas. Our bed was formed from stone and sported a comfortable mattress which if you ever slept on a yatuk made in some villages, thıs is a very welcomed asset! Our bed was adorned with fresh towels neatly pressed and presented as fans. The bathroom was small and functional and the only thing İ had a hard time with was adjusting the water temperature to meet my satisfactıon. *After a good hike around the valley, İ preferred more of a cooler temperature whereas, my husband prefers much warmer. One very good thing was the free wı-fı and our connection was very good; never had a problem. There was a small flat screen tele which the reception was good.
They serve you kavalta (breakfast), which is standard Turkish fare and more than enough. What İ loved best was the garden where we ate! So many fruit trees and roses. The rustic
handmade tables and chairs were adorned wıth traditıonal Turkısh fabrics which enhanced the romantic feeling. İn the morning hours we met so many new friends from all over the world! Stories , travel tips, and emails were exchanged with hopes to meet again in our lives.
The owner has lived here all his life and the history of how this Gümüş Cave Hotel came to be is interesting. He has a cat named Kave' (I am not sure how to spell this) and she is friendly -- definately part of the staff! Check out his pet (yet wild) doves that hang out on this property. Even they look to be in love!
There is a small reception or bar room but most of the guests stayed outside in the garden. My guess is this is used during the snowy months.
The pricing of this hotel was very reasonable. We will be coming back here for sure!
