For anyone who hasn't been to or seen pictures of Cappadocia, you are in for a pleasant surprise. This lunaresque landscape is a treat for the eyes and a region you will never forgot. Great wines, hiking, eating, underground cities, hot air balloons, and more. But enough about the area - Terra Cave Hotel was an excellent choice for lodging!
Ebru, manager of the hotel, was fantastic. She arranged dinners, hot air balloons, and scooters upon our arrival in no time. She even walked us into town on our 3rd day to help us find a lesser known Indian restaurant!
Breakfasts at the hotel are terrific with a combination fruits, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, cereal, and many more regional Turkish treats. The terrace/balcony is cozy and great place to enjoy the breakfast or an afternoon.
We loved our cute cave-style room. The one downside is that we visited in the peak of summer and temperatures reached the low to mid 90s (Fahrenheit). As such, evenings and nights were still a bit warm. Almost nowhere in Cappadocia has air conditioning (restaurants or hotels). So, if you come during this time, be prepared. It was not too bad, but a bit uncomfortable at times. We would recommend that he terra cave outfit each room with a small fan for summer months. We dounderstand that the temperature is much more. Comfortable for most parts of the year.
Against a great accomodation, very friendly hosts, and an excellent experience...
