“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 23 October 2010

we have rented a basic room on the higher level (202 or 203 I think). picture of our room on their website had a view of the chimney; well our room in real life didn't...
I found it overpriced for what it is. First impression of the hotel is small and old looking. As soon as you enter your room you will find that it smells very humid and there is no light coming into your room unlike the picutres on the website.
location is not much better than if you were to stay in Urgup or Nevsehir, where more choices of hotels available...we also had problems with hot water one morning... bed sheets and towels were really old however very clean... there were not enough supplies in the bathroom; "very" small bar oh olive oil soap and two little bottles of shampoo, nothing else...
Family who ran the hotel was nice and friendly and helpful but I think with small improvments here and there they can deserve the money they charge...

Me and my wife took note of the good ratings of this hotel in Tripadvisor and booked a standard room for four days. However, the room provided to us had nothing to do with the photograph in the catalogue. The photo in the picuture showed a nicely lit room with a wonderful view of the fairy chimneys, whereas the room we had was without a window. It was a very small and dark room in the basement. When we complained about the situation, we encountered a very rude attitude by the hotel staff. The hotel administration later apoligized for this treatment and promised us that we would be given a suit room for two days and a delux room for the last day. However, they did not keep this promise. We noticed that our luggage were transfered to another standard room the second day. We were quite upset about this treatment. Moreover, during our stay, each morning, we were voken up by the morning prayer at about 5 o'clock as the hotel was quite clause to the local Göreme Mosque. As a result, we decided to leave the hotel one day early. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone. There are many more much nicer and cheaper hotels out there in Göreme. Don't waste your money for this hotel.

Beautiful little family run in right in the center of Goreme, Cappadocia. Our room was very large, clean, and comfortable for European standards and the service was great. Only about 5-10 minute walk to the restaurants/attractions in Goreme and 30 minute walk to the Open Air Museum. The family was very accommodating, always offering us tea or coffee. They were more than happy to help us with our activities planned for each day. Their English was great, and they appeared to be very conversational in other languages as well. We didn't have laptops with us, and they offered to let us use their personal computer to check email. Their courtyard is beautiful for relaxing on a hot afternoon, and the view from their terrace at breakfast is stunning! For the price this inn has much to offer compared to the other lodging options in Goreme. Highly recommended.

This was a charming family-run business that gave us great value for our money. I particularly liked the family-run aspect of it because we could sit there in the afternoon, after a long (and hot) day of sightseeing and chit-chat with the owners. There is a mulberry tree in the main courtyard and the owners picked a bunch of the berries and gave us a plate to eat. The breakfast was delicious too - the jam is all homemade and delicious. So delicious that the bees love to come and hang out with you as you eat!

I thought the rooms were decent - they weren't too busy so they gave us the adjacent room for free, which was nice. Since we had four people, every extra bathroom helped. It was REALLY hot in the rooms though, even with the windows open. We borrowed a fan from reception but it didn't really help at all.

They were supposed to have free WiFi but I couldn't get it to work. And since I was on vacation I didn't bother to ask for help...

Overall, I would definitely stay in Goreme House again - it was a fantastic experience with great people. The owner's sister even helped me mail my postcards since I didn't have time to get the stamps. I gave her some money and she took them to the post office herself. Fantastic - only a family-run business would do that for me.

We recently stayed at Goreme House Hotel for couple of nights. The hotel is located couple of minutes from the center of the town. We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel owners did a great job with our accommodations. The breakfast made by the owner's sister was excellent. My wife and I really enjoyed the view from the hotel terrace. The room prices are a little expensive compared to some other hotels but this place was recommended in our Turkey tour book.

The people of Turkey are great at hosting including the people running the Goreme House.

I just returned from spending 9 days in Turkey, and our time at Goreme House was wonderful. By far the best hospitality we have experienced in Turkey and that says a lot since the hospitality was great everywhere we stayed. The family running this lovely Hotel went out of their way to make us comfortable, help us plan our excursions and make us feel like part of the family. We arrived very early in the day and left very late due to taking overnight buses and they were very accommodating in allowing us to use all facilities. They also offered rides to things we had signed up to do including the show for the Whirling Dervishes which was at least 15 minutes away. The driver stayed throughout the show waiting to take us back at no charge! The hotel also offers laundry services which we were in desperate need of!

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a convenient place to stay in Cappadocia!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Cappadocia Goreme House Hotel offers enchanting and elegant accommodation in a restored old Cappadocian House. Close and convenient to downtown, restaurants, Museums, shopping and attractions in Cappadocia. Immerse yourself in an atmosphere that is delightfully different... Goreme House Hotel, nestled on the back slopes of Goreme Village, was constructed and completed in 1997. The hotel harmoniously fuses together traditional Anatolian style with modern comforts in order to create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere to meet the needs of today's traveler. In constructing Goreme House Hotel, the style was kept as traditional as possible while stressing the importance of details. Blocks of natural rock were used to create the cool and spacious arch rooms. Wood floors and panel decorations were added for warmth. Modern bathroom amenities as well as central heating make even the weariest of travelers feel at home. Goreme House Hotel is not your everyday, conventional hotel. It has a warm, guest house feel with extremely personal care, breathtaking views, and many quaint corners to "slip away" with a good book or simply enjoy the views of village life activities going on down below. Homey yet professional is the general ambiance. ... more   less
