“Over and above what we expected!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This was my second stay at Terra Cave, owned and renovated by Ms. Nilhan, who is a professional architect. She has always gone out of her way in welcoming guests to this beautiful cave hotel up on the hill above the center of Goreme. This time she did even more than expected. There was a water problem with one of the rooms and the others were full, so she arranged for us to stay at a near neighbor hotel in one of their best rooms in a fairy chimney. The price would have been twice the price of our room at the Terra Cave, but since she had also been the architect for that hotel she was able to get us the room for the same price as our Terra Cave one. We highly recommend Terra Cave and our wonderful host there, Ms. Nilhan. We're hoping to be back in the fall for another stay!

Extremely friendly and helpful staffs, I love them!! They helped me for all the local information and even for my further trip after Goreme. Terra also has a great environment and the best breakfast I had during my trip. When we were reading books on it balcony, I felt that was the most cozy time ever.

The hotel is located at the heart of Goreme town, walking distance to the Main Street with many shops and restaurants. The Goreme Open Air Museum is 20mins by walking from the hotel. The cave suite is awesome. The room is spacious and it is a wonderful experience to stay in a cave room. The hosts Ms Nihal and Ms Ayse are very friendly. Before the stay, they recommended some local tour and hot air balloon flight. They helped to arrange everything including the airport transfer. Upon check in, we were served with tea and briefed on the tour. When we're back to hotel on the evening after the tour, we also had a nice chat with them. They are very friendly and warm people. Definitely recommended for stay when visiting Cappadocia or Goreme.

I am amazed by the staff hospitality, service and cleanliness of the hotel.

Upon arrival (before check-in time), the hotel staff provided us with breakfast and shared with us the range of activities that we can do in Cappadocia. They were efficient in making bookings, so that we can fully enjoy our holiday. The daily breakfasts had a wide range of variety, and were delicious!

Location of Terra is good - within 10 minutes' walking time from the town centre. We stayed in the room at the basement floor. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. With interior lights and a skylight (transparent window), it was perfect for us! Daylight will shine onto the foot of our bed in the morning, so it's not too bright for our eyes. Even though there is no air-conditioner, the room is always cool and well-ventilated.

The hotel is able to provide modern shower facilities for us after check-out in a separate bathroom. This is a very good service, as many guests will take the evening/night bus to other towns from Cappadocia.

The cave hotel experience is unique and memorable for us, and we'll recommend Terra to anyone who would like a quiet and comfortable place to stay in Goreme.

Spend 4 days of our honeymoon at the Terra Cave hotel. The hotel has a bed and breakfast feel with only 6 rooms in the hotel. We were happy that we had been allocated one of the cave rooms, I would have been a little disappointed if we hadn't. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The only downfalls of the room was that there was no curtain to one window into the corridor so light came into the room the whole night (that only bothered me as I like to sleep in pitch black). The other downfall was the the cave ceiling constantly drops tiny bits of sandstone. This was almost funny though, and not the hotels fault. Regarding the host Ayse, she was AMAZING. So helpful and informative. On our last day, she had noticed on my passport that it was my birthday so she called us up to the terrace and had a bottle of wine for my husband and I to share. Very very happy with this hotel, would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Request a cave room if you want that experience
