On arriving in Goreme after 14 hours drive, we circled around to find the best cave hotel which none looked inviting until we passed the Spelunca hotel.
We were shown around the hotel by Suleyman who was very helpful by letting us see 4 different cave rooms. We finally decided on the a 3rd floor Deluxe Cave room which had fantastic views over Goreme especially at approx 0630 in the morning when all the hot air balloons were taking off.
Although my wife and 3 year old son are scared of dogs we never had any problems with Whiskey and Fistik as they were very friendly dogs.
Thank you very much HAVVA, for always cleaning our room and keeping it spotless especially for changing all our towels everyday for the 5 days that we stayed there.
Breakfast was typically Turkish with lots to choose from with the rolls being as fresh as they can get.
With regards to the first prayer in the morning we never had a problem with the mosque because this is something you expect anywhere in Turkey.
Finally we enjoyed our stay at this hotel with the family atmosphere from Suleyman and Havva.

Otelde, birinin bizim geldiğimiz gün işe başladığını öğrendiğimiz sadece iki personel hem sabahları kahvaltı, hem havlu tedariği gibi "hosekeeping" işleri hem de aklınıza gelebilecek bilimum işlerle ilgilenmek suretiyle hizmet vermeye çalışıyor. Öte yandan havlamayı çok seven bir köpek başıboş olarak mekan içinde dolaştığı için köpek fobiniz varsa uzak durmanızı öneririm. İlk yapıldığında ferah olarak yapılmış ve döşenmiş odaları olmasına rağmen işletmenin yetersizliği ve servis kalitesinin düşüklüğü nedeniyle ancak bir pansiyon olabilir.

Hotel's location and view is very nice. Sadly, all is ruined by inadequate and novice staff and indifferent owner. The basic room we had was apparently once caringly furnished but not as carefully upkept. No food other than a mediocre breakfast. When the electricty went out during strong rains, all we were provided with (after we demanded it) were a pair of candles as there was no generator. Stay somewhere else unless all you want is a roof over your head.

Stayed here four nights and just loved it. The rooms are very spacious, modern, clean and silent. The spa bath was a welcome feature. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the traditional Turkey tourist fare, although the rolls were outstanding.

The hotel is cave-like, which seems to be the case with most of the hotels here. The only drawback is that the Internet does not work in the bedrooms. This seems to be a problem with most of the hotels here, as the walls are just too thick to work with wireless.

Would recommend this hotel highly.

We booked a room at Spelunca on hotels.com and reserved a "cave suite." When we arrived, however, we were given a room that was identified on the hotel's own website as a "Deluxe Cave Room," not a suite. When we pointed this out to the owner, he proceeded to argue with us that the hotel's website was wrong and that we actually were in a suite. He then offered to show us the rooms that the hotel's website identified as suites (the 300 level rooms) and offered to give us the lower rate if we thought the other rooms were nicer. Long story short, the suites were much larger and brighter, plus they had semi-private balconies as opposed to the shared terrace the 200 level rooms have. We were eventually given the lower rate. The room itself was very nice, it was just too bad that the hotel's owner attempted to rip us off. One last point, the other reviewer's point about the morning call to prayer was entirely accurate - the longest and loudest call is at 5:30AM and it is so loud it sounds like the muezzin is in the room with you.

A beautifully equipped cave hotel just 2 mins walk from the centre of Goreme. The rooms are all built into the side of the hill and were beautifully equipped with bathrooms with spa baths. Some rooms are partially brick built but blended in with the surroundings whilst others are proper caves dug into the cliff behind the hotel. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was excellent.
