Arif Cave Hotel
Ranked #21 of 76 Goreme B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 September 2013

One of the best experiences I've had with hotels all around the world. The position of the hotel is perfect with view all around the Goreme area and morning balloons raising over the rocks. Sunny, beautiful terrace very nice and confortable rooms, nicely placed so that they are not cold. And the owners are extremely helpful, nice, very communicative and open. We visited them even after we moved from the hotel (due to previous group arrangements), stayed on the terrace and enjoyed their hospitality. Thanks to Ahmed and his family who made our stay excellent and facilitated all our tours, including baloon, at a very reasonable price! We will definitely come back.

My boyfriend and I booked a Cave room, the cheapest one, through booking.com for two nights unknowing that the room is not a mountain view as other hotels listed on the website are classified into mountain or garden view. When we checked in, we found out that the room is actually on underground floor and next to the street. We asked Ahmet, the owner, if we could change to other room but they are fully booked. So the first night we barely slept because of the sound of the cars on the street.

Ahmet came to us the second night and offer to upgrade the room for free as he felt uncomfortable if his customers have a bad experience in his hotel though this room is more than double that what we paid! We are very grateful for his offer and would like to praise his great service mind! (though we will pay him some amount when we check out tomorrow).

Apart from this, the hotel is in a very good location, the rooms are very nice, and the balloon and day tours that we booked through the hotel are also amazing! We had such a great experience here and we'd definitely stay at Arif Cave Hotel again!

Room Tip: Don't be a penny pincher on the cave room! I would suggest you book directly through the hotel w...

We stayed in the Ottoman Room with View which was very comfortable and large. Arif Cave is less than a 5 minute walk from the city centre, it's quiet and has amazing views (the best in Goreme) from both the room and the main terrace. In the morning you can see the colourful balloons flying in the sky, watch the beautiful sunrise and sunset. Turkish traditional breakfast was excellent. Ahmet and his father are extremely friendly and helpful. Couldn't have made a better choice!

Room Tip: Choose the room by the pictures showed in the hotel site as you won't be disappointed

I lived three nights in this excellent hotel with my boyfriend. The staff here helped us a lot, with the perfect advise of the horse riding, green line journey and dancing shows. The view here is the best in the whole Goreme which can enjoy the panorama of this town at night. I will be back with my friends later. Thank you again.

Excellent location, could be the best location in Goreme. The room was outstanding! It did feel like i was staying in a cave, only with all the comfort that i would require for a great stay. Room, bed and bathroom were very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was excellent. Hotel is in the heart of Goreme so shopping area is within a walking distance.
Mr. Ahmet, the hotel manager did his best to make my stay very comfortable and suggested me a great program through email before I arrive for my two day stay, and arranged for all the trips without asking for an advanced payment, thank you so much Ahmet for making my trip to Cappaducia so wonderful.

Room Tip: Reserve early to be able to book the fairy chimny room. The cave room with a view is also excellent...

We stayed at Arif cave hotel for four nights and it was wonderful: clean, well taken care of, beautiful setting and wonderful views. Ahmet couldn't have been more helpful. It lived up to all the recommendations and we were not surprised to see many more visitors arriving as we left. Thank you again.

Room Tip: Room one was great.

This place is one of the best locations in Goreme - the view is exceptional from the rooftop terrace and very close to the top of the town where you can see the sunset every night. The hotel itself is absolutely charming. We stayed in a double room that was spacious and very clean with a great view of the early morning hot-air balloon launch. We also have to mention the warm reception we received from our hosts who went out of their way to help us and make our stay memorable. Thank-you Ahmet and to your family. We will definitely recommend your hotel to our friends when they travel to Turkey.
