“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Vineyard Cave Hotel. It's not the typical hotel design that you might expect. Because of the layout it almost felt like a bed and breakfast, yet the location of the rooms allowed each guest their own individual privacy. Our room was beautiful, very nicely decorated with stone walls, Turkish glass and carpets. The bathroom was spacious and accommodating. The separate bedroom room for our daughter was huge and equally beautiful. My only complaint was that the television was in her room with the single bed, and not the room with the double bed. This being said, people don't go to Cappadocia for the television, so this is a very minor issue in my book. The room was cleaned daily by the very friendly family staff. Simply put, the rooms were comfortable, beautiful, and met our every need.

When we arrived, Hasan and Osman were both there to greet us at the door. This was a pleasant surprise considering our late arrival. They both made us feel instantly at home. Their motto seems to be "If there's anything you need, all you have to do is ask". I never felt the need to ask for anything, because everything we could want was already supplied for us. The mini-fridge was stocked with complimentary water and juice bottles (which was great after a long flight).

The breakfast was amazing!!! Where do I start? The first morning we ate, was right after a hot-air balloon ride with Butterfly Balloons (Amazing! Worth every cent!) that Hasan and Osman were nice enough to arrange for us. When we arrived to the dining area we were served coffee along with a plate full of a wide variety of foods. It had everything; multiple cheeses, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, meats, kiwi, oranges, grapefruit, banana, pear, apple, not to mention the fresh baked bread rolls. It was almost too much to eat, yet I still could not resist their specialty egg dish. Trust me when I tell you, when they offer to make them for you, just smile and say "Yes please". Breakfast was one of my favorite things about my stay. This alone would bring me back again.

Our second day there, we decided to take Hasan up on his offer for a tour of the surrounding area. It was convenient to have someone local show us the area. The price was comparable to what a rental car for the day would have cost us; at the same time offering us an inside look at life in Cappadocia. Hasan showed us where he grew up and played as a child. We got to see many areas that we would have missed if we had been on our own. We were also taken to a local jewelry maker as well as a pottery shop. I know what you're thinking...it was a convenient opportunity for a sales pitch, which was not the case at all. Hasan let us know in advance that there was absolutely no pressure to buy anything, and he was right. There was no pressure from anyone. While we couldn't resist a small purchase from the jeweler, we just didn't find anything at the pottery shop that was right for us. The salesmen thanked us for stopping by and wished us a safe trip. I never once felt any pressure to buy from anyone, and I was glad to have an opportunity to view pottery art by local artists. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience. After the tour was over, I felt like I really got to see Cappadocia through the eyes of a local.

I promised Hasan and Osman that when we got back home that I would let everyone know how much fun we had staying with them, I hope these few paragraphs does just that. I feel like we now have new friends in Cappadocia, and I can't wait to see them again. To Hasan, Osman, and your wonderful family, thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

Sincerely,
Sean, Stephanie & Emma

The hotel is amazing. The rooms are unique, breakfast is outstanding, the view is incredible.

But that's not why you go here. You stay here because of Hasan, the owner. He went above and beyond in ensuring our comfort during our stay. In the high pressure sales world of Turkey, he never once made us feel pressured to purchase anything. He was helpful, informative, offered us rides to places. He was just about the kindest man we met in Turkey.

The room we chose was three times bigger, and 30% cheaper than the one we saw at Capadoccia Cave Suites. Hasan picked us up at the coffee shop in town, and drove us back to his BnB.

Room Tip: Hasan will show you multiple rooms, and you can choose which one works best for you.

As soon as we arrived at the Hotel Hassam told us: My house is your house. He was not kidding. We pass in Goreme one of the best moments of our lives. The hotel was perfect. The quality and cleanliness of the rooms, the decor, the breakfast, but mostly the warmth and attention that Hassan and his family gave us. No wonder that the Vineyard Cave Hotel has a score that is in Trip Advisor

This place is extraordinarily special in many ways. Osman and his father Hasan are warm, thoughtful people who responded to every inquiry and question that we had. We had two days of touring with Hasan, who speaks excellent English and who was as welcoming as any person we have ever met while traveling. We truly felt at home here and loved the breakfast, the hospitality and genuineness of this place. We stayed in a two-bedroom cave which was very comfortable. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Staying here, as well as the hot air balloon ride, was the highlight of our trip to Turkey. Hasan even brought from his house for our 20 year old son Hasan's favorite Turkish food.

Room Tip: Get a cave room.

We had a wonderful time at Vineyard Cave hotel. From the very start when we made our booking, Osman was great in emailing back and forth with us over our various questions about the area and things to do.
When we arrived, Osman gave us a warm welcome and invited us up to the reception where we enjoyed some yummy apple tea and he gave us an overview of the area and the various activities available.
We had 3 people in our group, so we opted for a suite (Room #7 I think). It wasn't a cave room, but an arch room instead. We were definitely not disappointed. The whole hotel is beautiful and has a very local feel to it. The shower was nice and big with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Our rooms also had space heaters in addition to the central heating which did a good job of keeping our room warm by itself.
Both Osman and Hassan were very friendly and a fun to be around. The cleaning/cooking staff were also very friendly, always offering us a tea whenever we came up to the reception area to relax.
We opted to do a half-day tour of the area with Hassan the second day we were there and it was 100% worth it. Hassan has some great history and stories for the area and can take you to places that may be hard to get to on your own. I would recommend doing the half or full day tours with them towards the beginning of your trip so that you have the info and know what you're looking at when you want to go off exploring on your own.
And last but not least... the breakfast. Wow. So delicious. There was bread with some lovely spreads (local butter, local honey, cherry jam or something like that, & tomato based spread), cheeses, cucumbers, tomatoes, oranges, pears, bananas, omelets, and more. And that is just one meal! We always cleaned our plates and left energized for the day.

Room Tip: The suite is a great option if you want more than room but still want to be connected.

Cappaducia was high up on our bucket list, and staying in The Vineyard Cave Hotel made the experience even more memorable than what we could have imagined. Our welcome was very friendly with Osman giving us insight and an excellent overview of the area and what his recommendations were in terms of the time we had available and the anticipated weather> I don't believe that without this we would have seen and done everything we did. The accommodation and hospitality was very warm and friendly, with wonderful breakfasts always including a dose of humour. The family was always very kind and friendly and made you feel at home> I would recommend anyone to stay at the VIneyard Cave Hotel, it is very well located, comfortable and affordable. A half day or day tour around the area with Hasan is a must, as is a balloon trip and turkish bath, which were all arranged by the family at really good prices as well.

We booked the VCH because it was the most reasonably priced of the highly-rated cave hotels on Tripadvisor, and it could accommodate our family of four in one unit. We are certainly glad we did! The hotel is in a great location, on a hill with nice views of the Cappadocia landscape, and just a short walk from the center of town. Our room (#5) was terrific, with a sitting/entry area, two large bedrooms and a spacious bathroom, nicely appointed with Turkish rugs, pillows, furniture and lamps. It also included extra amenities such as coffee/tea and a mini-fridge stocked with drinks and snacks. The daily breakfast of fresh fruit, bread, cheeses, homemade honey and jam and special scrambled egg omlette was fabulous as well. No buffet-style breakfast here. Each table is served personally by the owner and staff in a cozy room at the top of the hotel looking out over the town.

As much as we enjoyed our room, the brekafast, etc., what impressed us most was the hospitality of Hassan, Osman and their family. This is a family-run hotel, and they work so hard to make sure their guests have not only an enjoyable stay, but an enjoyable experience in Cappadocia. After a long trip from California, how nice it was to receive a warm greeting from Osman, who brought drinks and plates of fresh fruit, and sat down with us to tell us about the local sights, tour/guide options, restaurants, etc. During the stay, we were really made to feel like welcome guests, and they went out of their way to be helpful. On our last day, we had to leave early to catch a flight, and they prepared our breakfast earlier than the usual serving time just to accommodate us.

As much as we enjoyed the sights in Cappadocia, our best memory will be the hospitality of Hassan, Osman and family.
