“A great basic, quaint room for a great rate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

This cave hotel was a lot of fun to stay in. It is small and family run, and you dont get the corporate run-around you get with some of the larger places where they try to sell you every tourist package at inflated prices. The prices were very good, the rooms were pretty quiet, though only basically furnished. Wireless worked very well. If you are driving on your own, make sure you get good directions and dont rely on the google maps placement of the hotel--it is wrong. It is close to the Sultan Cave Suites, which is easy to find. Keep going past the Sultan Cave Suites, and look for the sign.

The five of us visited Goreme in early July 2012 and stayed in one double room and one triple room for two nights.

Reasons that we loved Tekkaya:
1. The cave rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. The guesthouse was generally a great place to stay.
2. Breakfast was simple but great and delicious. This was our conclusion after having 10+ breakfasts at the other hotels/hostels/guesthouses we stayed in in the trip.
3. Mustafa the owner was very reliable, helpful and humorous. We asked for his recommendation/advice for food and tours. We were very happy with what he recommended.
4. Mustafa's friends were everywhere in the village!! We had so much fun talking with them and apricot picking at their place!
5. Our bus was at 8pm and Mustafa let us stay in the double room till we left at 6pm. Hence we were able to shower after the hot and sweaty day before getting on the overnight bus.

It's always the people you meet that makes a good trip. Goreme itself was worth the travel but Mustafa made our time even better! Thanks so much and get well soon with the leg!!

This is a great spot in beautiful Cappadocia. From the rooftop terrace, we had a great view of Goreme, with amazing views of the balloons taking off and floating around in the morning (make sure you get up at 6am to see them!) Breakfast was fairly simple, but really delicious and more than adequate (even after 4 days there, we did not get sick of it). The room itself was really clean and tidy. The only slight downside was that, every now and then, we would find a little bit of plaster on the floor (presumably, this cannot be helped and just a natural consequence of being in a cave room). Finally, thank you very much to Mustafa, who was a great host and always helpful (booking tours for us and even booking takeaway pizza for us).

We arrived in Cappidocia at 6:30am and we were picked up from the bus station by the owner. Our room wasn't ready, but Mustafa made us coffee, and offered us breakfast while we waited for our room to be made up. We had eaten breakfast and checked into our room by 8am at no extra cost! Mustafa also recommended tours and made reservations for us (we booked the Butterfly balloon Tour and the "green line" bus tour through him, and we were very happy with both!). He drove us back to the bus station on our day of departure and refused the tip we tried to offer him as thanks.
This hotel is located at the top of a hill, and it can be a bit tricky to find at night, but the views from the terrace make it well worth it.
I recommend Tekkaya and would stay there again if I was back in Cappidocia.

We stayed here for four nights in April and it exceeded our expectations. The owner, Mustafa picks up and drops off from the bus station. It's up on a hill overlooking the town (about 10 minutes walk) and in the morning we watched the hot air balloons take off all around us. The kid's cave room was a bit chilly when we arrived but Mustafa put the heat on (centrally wood-fired!) Our bedroom wasn't a cave room but had a lovely view and lots of light. Nice clean bathrooms and the full Turkish breakfasts complete with fresh rolls, eggs, and freshly sliced fruit. Mustafa was helpful in advising us on walks and tours, although maps would have been useful as we got lost several times. If you want your room cleaned or fresh towels, you will need to ask, however, as room service is not automatically done. Mustafa happily obliges.

We stayed 7 nights at the tekkaya. The guesthouse is high above Göreme. Mustafa, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. He will organise the reservation for trips, shuttle to the airport and can give you tipps about Cappadocia. The view from the terrace is gorgeous, don't forget to watch the balloons from up there, early in the morning.
And we really liked the rose-jam in the morning. Mixed with fresh yoghurt. Try it!
The rooms are clean, new and nice decorated.
We really enjoed our staying by Mustafa.

Room Tip: We had Room Nr. 4 and liket it a lot.

We stayed 2 nights at Tekkaya in a Cave Room. The Cave Room was new, clean and decorated to a high standard. The rate included a traditional turkish breakfast. The owner and manager Mustafa contacted us regarding airport transfers less than a day after booking the room online. He helped to organise our tours and had plenty of hints & tips. Very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Request the cave room to enjoy the full experience.
