We stayed at the Divan Cave House for three nights in July. Outside it was steaming but the room was totally comfortable. Breakfast was included (and delicious).

The hotel is located at the top of the hill, which means the views are breathtaking, but it's about a five-minute walk downhill to get to town and a ten-minute walk uphill to get back. The Goreme Open-Air Museum was maybe another fifteen-minute walk from the town center. We did it in the July heat with small kids, so it doesn't seem like a big deal to us, but if you have mobility issues this may not be a good choice.

The most important thing for us was how kind and helpful the staff was. For example, one of our suitcases started to come apart and somebody actually sewed it back up for us!

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room away from the main entrance, as people tend to come in and out early in the morning and late at night and they can be noisy!

Divan Cave House is a decent value “cave hotel”. It’s not great, but it’s alright enough to stay for a few days. Any more than that and you might want a more comfortable place.

The location isn’t the most convenient – it’s about a 15 mins uphill walk from Göreme proper. There are signs for it all over the hill so you shouldn’t have trouble finding it. You’ll have to head down into the main town for some transportation and supplies.

The front desk office is a bit small, but the staff offers a free walking tour and can book other, color-coded Cappadocia tours as well through Nomad Travel (I did the Blue tour with them, and it was fun). They can drop you off at the Open Air Museum for free. The staff seemed knowledgeable and friendly, and handled check-in well. I reserved a balloon tour, but there was an unexpected problem with that company, so the hotel helped reschedule me onto another company’s tour; this was very convenient. Within the compound there are a few outdoors places to sit down and relax, but towards the southern end there was occasionally an unpleasant odor in the daytime. There’s not an elevator to be seen for miles.

I was in a triple room, which had an adequate amount of space and was cool. There was a kind of musty smell in the room, which fortunately you no longer really notice after a little bit. I suspect that this smell is present at all of these cave hotels in the area. The beds were small and not the greatest. The room appeared fairly clean, and had really basic furnishings, including a small fridge. The free Wifi was good throughout the hotel. Some things I didn’t like were that the room seemed a bit dark, even with all lights on, and a couple of the lamps didn’t work at all. There aren’t many wall outlets. Housekeeping appeared OK. There really wasn’t too much noticeable pesky outside noise. Carrying the big room key around when you left got old quick.

The bathroom is spacious and comfortable enough despite being somewhat basic. Unfortunately, one night the water service was unexpectedly disrupted. I wish the hotel offered some bottled water at least so guests could still wash, but the only thing I got was a notice and an apology.

The free Turkish breakfast on the top terrace provided quality, varied, tasty eats, with good service to boot. In the evening the eating area is not really “open”, but you can ask for Efes beer and some wine to chill outside with.

Check-out was not a problem, and they stored my bags for a while when I went to get one last valley hike in. They also arranged a convenient shared dolmus to small Nevşehir airport (about an hour away).

Not the most comfortable place, but it’s a good enough value for a short stay.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, it had a great setting and quiet location high up on the hill. Close to excellent restaurants and photo vantage points (we were able to watch the hot air balloons at sunrise just a few metres up the road). There is also good parking close by. The rooms were clean and cutely decorated. The staff were great, very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend staying here as a base for the Cappadocia area.

Room Tip: The room we had didn't come with air on however it had a fan and it's quite cool in the cave.

Friendly staff, simple but nice breakfast. We had a problem with our room, there was too much "sand" falling from the roof into our bed (which might happen as the hotel was carved in rock). When I commented the fact to the reception lady, she offered a superior room, which was really nice. They take you to/from the Open Air Museum by car without any charge. Localization is OK, within walking distance from the main street.

My fiance and I stayed at the Divan Cave House for 4 nights and had a fabulous time. The staff were incredibly welcoming, kind and helpful. The hotel is in a great quiet location, just a short walk down to the down town area. Our room was also amazing, with beautiful touches of old and modern. The staff were able to recommend some truly fantastic (and excellently priced) day tour and restaurants to us during our stay. The hotel also offered an unforgettable FREE walking sunset tour. We both really fell in love with Goreme and this beautiful hotel. If we visit Turkey again later in life, we look forward to staying at the Divan Cave House again :)
