I’ve been spending lots of time to check a cave hotel with a reasonable price in Goreme and finally found this top one cave hotel. I suggest you saving your time and directly book this one if you have lots of questions and need a responsive and friendly service. The owner, Ahmet is a very responsive and helpful. My husband and I arrived at night at the hotel after flew three connecting flights and another hour of bus ride to Goreme. He and his father warmly welcomed us and offered us with welcome drink, gave us the map and suggested us the itinerary. We told him our selected hot air balloon operator and he arranged the balloon tour ride with a very good price (we paid the price for small-basket-less-passenger for the price of big-basket-more-crowded hot air balloon). Ahmet even helped us to change the money with good rate as we didn’t have much Turkey Lira when we arrived. We stayed in a large cave room with balcony and the view was amazing. With the fast wifi, we can immediately share our pictures to friends :) The hotel itself is on the very top of the hill. It takes 5 minutes walk to the bus terminal, restaurants and shops and 1 km to Goreme Open Air Museum. We really enjoyed our stay in Arif Cave Hotel.

Best Hotel we have stayed in Turkey actually. Arif and Ahmet are really great people and they made our stay even better helping us with everything (tour, balloon flight, transportation, etc) If you go to Goreme, stay in Arif Cave Hotel. Great room, great view and location.

I traveled among Turkey this Oct with my friend and staying at Arif Cave is definitely the most welcoming experience of all. With the location on the hill, its balcony has a spectacular view over the valley. The manager Ahmet is not only friendly but also passionate of helping us customerize our tour in Goreme. His friend Ali Battir was introduced as our guide, also an awesome fun man. They both made my vacation beyond site-seeing or museum with their knowledge. They made us make friends and had fun altogether for the whole stay. A+ experience!!!

İ have spent 3 days in Arif Cave with my partner and it was absolutely perfect. The caves are located in the heart of the village, but on the top of a hill for this reason the place is full of relax. We arrived to the airport without any transfer reserved so we called to the hotel to request for some information. Ahmet (owner) arranged a transfer for us for only 20 TL PAX from Nevesehir airport (İ checked afterwards, and it is the same price you can get bookıng it directly in the agencies). Upon the arrival to the hotel Ahmet gave us some advices and made a plan for our tight stay. We stayed at the fairy chimeney room: quite, big enough for a couple, clean, confy and nice view from the window. Breakfast was full of turkish choices and superb too. Rest of the staff (2pax) were very kind and helpful too. The most shocking aspect is the view!! İ will go again to Göreme, and for sure İ will stay in Arif. Thanks Ahmet, Tomas

Me and my friend stayed here for 2 nights/3 days and enjoyed a fantastic stay.

Firstly, Ahmet and his family who run this hotel are extremely helpful and friendly. We arrived very early in the morning and after picking us up from the coach stop, Ahmet brought us tea and pastries and got us onto a trip that was starting in less than an hour. Ahmet also helped us book the rest of our trips and flight tickets.

You'll have no complaints about the cave hotel, either. The rooms are spacious, charming, full of personality and clean. The bathrooms are big, too, and they always have hot water. The views from the roof of the hotel are stunning.

If you come out of the hotel and turn left, and walk up the hill, you will find an amazing place to watch the sunset at night and sunrise in the morning. A lot of people come here to take great pictures and I really recommend doing it!

I could go on and say many more great things about this hotel...

If you go to Cappadocia, I really recommend staying here.

Thanks Ahmet, and hopefully see you again sometime!

This is a beautiful family hotel in a perfect location just down from goreme sunset point. Our fairy chimney room couldnt have been nicer and had an amazing view. The manager was very friendly and helpful, arranging everything to make our stay perfect and providing great advice. The only thing is that 2 days was way too quick for our trip and we would have loved to stay longer! highly recommend this hotel for an authentic and memorable cave hotel experience. Big thank you to Ahmet.
