Great experience at Vineyard Cave hotel for my 3 day trip at Cappadocia. We arrived late (around midnight) at Goreme from our flight from Istanbul to Nevsehir airport due to transportation issues but as our shuttle pulled up to the hotel, Osman (the owner's son) was already standing outside waiting for us and welcoming us to the hotel. We originally booked a smaller room but he upgraded us to a much nicer room at no extra charge. We were already pleasantly surprised on our first night there.
Osman and Hasan (the owner) are both from Goreme and they were both extremely helpful and friendly during our entire stay there. Our 1st day at Goreme, Hasan took us on a private tour (that is only available to guests staying at the hotel) to all the major landmarks in the area (within the red tour) but also secret areas that he knew from his childhood where there were ALOT less tourists but equally breathtaking. The best part about this tour was Hasan telling and showing us his story and the town of Goreme, where he grew up, Turkey, about his parents and kids. It was great to learn more about what it's like as a local. Hasan is one of the town councillor (equivalent) and becomes the Acting Mayor when the official Mayor is on leave so he practically knows everyone in town (and allows us to get great discounts at places!)
Osman would give us lifts (no charge) to restaurants in town, to the open air museum, to the Hamam because they really wanted the service to be personal and to shine above the rest. It definitely showed. The price was extremely reasonable for such a great service and I felt like I got to know the town really well because of them. It made my trip felt that much more personal.
On our last day there, our flight was at 10pm and we were waiting for our shuttle at 8pm, we already ate and was just waiting at the hotel for our shuttle to arrive for like an hour. Osman was just hanging out at the hotel waiting for us and serving us traditional turkish tea (at no charge obviously because they're that nice) until our shuttle pulled up to make sure everything is OK before he left to have dinner with his friends.
Thanks for a great experience and look forward to coming back in the future!
