“Not what we expected”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

We decided to spend our new year in Goreme and after browsing all the hotels in this city we thought that Mithra looks nice, romantic and quiet. We booked a deluxe suite and hopped on the bus to go there. When we reached Mithra they send us to a small tiny room which was definitely not a suite! I went to the reception and they apologized for the mistake and promised to give us the best room of the hotel! We were taken to a very nice room with nice bathroom and we loved the room at the first sight. But........the next morning we woke up at 7:00 AM by the sound of people walking on top of our head and it was LOUD! though I am a very heavy sleeper I couldn't manage to go back to sleep. After we left our room at 8:00 (just imagine waking up at 8 while you are on vacation!!! ) we realized that this perfect room is below the dining room and since all the steps and floors are wooden this horrible noise is unavoidable!
Everything was beautiful and perfectly designed but I don't see any point of being in this perfect room while you can not relax and enjoy the silence!
I would like to add that the wi-fi internet was also awful! Totally forget about being able to viber or facetime your friends while staying at Mithra! ;)

My husband and I have just returned from an awesome stay at this wonderful hotel. Located close to Goreme town center, it has best views overlooking the valley. The Staff @ Mithra Cave are so warm, welcoming, friendly and very helpful, namely Hakan and Resul. They make you feel at home. I happened to book this hotel based other customer reviews. Everything, from arrival to departure was an experience to remember. On arrival, the Manager - Hakan, a big hearted and kind man, not only gave us a room to check in early in the morning, but also upgraded us to a King Suite. The suite was superb, a 2 story old cave room with a wine cellar, a big king size rotating bed and a jacuzzi. I couldnt have asked for more to start my holidays. Everything was taken care by the hotel staff, including airport pick up to drop, booking tours etc.The morning breakfast is an experience worth a mention. Served in a roof top restaurant with superb views and the spread is quite good. The Omlet is made to order by the ever smiling and friendly chef - Resul. Overall, we were soo relaxed and very happy to have chosen such a lovely place to stay. I have stayed in soo many hotels across the world (all stars), but I can tell you Mithra Cave tops them all in terms of service. If you want a stress free and happy holidays, then Mithra Cave is the place to go !!!! I happily recommend this hotel to all visiting Goreme ..............

Room Tip: Pls select Cave/ King suite room for an experience to live in old cave/chimney of Cappadocia

I just stayed here with my family over the holidays. This place was really interesting. Surprisingly modern and upscale for a cave structure.
The service was incredible. Everyone was extremely attentive. I got sick on my last day and they let me stay late and even served me a home cooked meal. I REALLY appreciate everything they did. Would recommend to anyone travelling here.

Room Tip: room right next to the office is best.

This one of the best hotels I have stayed in . The rooms are beautiful and the view from the hotel was excellent,

The Manager Hakkan was extremely nice . I was offered an upgrade once I checked in. He helped me in getting all the right tours and arranged for the balloon ride as well.

The breakfast buffet spread was awesome and one the best I had during the entire trip.

The hotel is highly recommended. I will go back to this hotel some day.

My friend suggested me that hotel and I also read good feedbacks on TripAdvisor. So i decided to stay here... But it was much more than my expectations!
First of all there is a fantastic scenery! You can enjoy view of flying hot air balloons over Göreme while having your breakfast...
We stayed in wonderful room. Nice decorated, very clean! Bed was quality and very comfortable.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Everything was wonderful...

The only negative part of our holiday was leaving the hotel :)

Mithra Cave was a WONDERFUL experience. The staff was so welcoming and helpful! The view was amazing and the owners were wonderful. Breakfast was more than generous and I couldn't recommend the hotel any more highly....when I return to Cappadocia, I will be at Mithra Cave Hotel!
