I recently returned from my third stay at the wonderful Kelebek in Goreme, this time staying in Room 102 (Stable). Not only do I love this hotel, I’ve loved each room I’ve stayed in (previous ones being Room 9 and Room 10). I have to admit, however, that Room 102 is now my favorite due to the lovely bathtub. Nothing is more relaxing after a day of trekking through Cappadocia than a long soak in a large tub. As always, the staff at the Kelebek were extremely friendly, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. At some places, it sometimes seems that a hotel or the service provided has deteriorated with age when you make a return visit, but not so at the Kelebek. Everything was as magical on this third visit as it was on my first.
The day tours offered by Heritage Travel (Heritage is part of Kelebek) were always good but are much better now that they don’t include any “shopping” stops and concentrate solely on different sites/areas. The food at the Kelebek restaurant is decent, and they have a really good wine selection. (Try both the Doluca Antik White and Doluca Antik Red.)
If you stay in Goreme, make sure you visit the AlaTurca Restaurant which is located on the main street in the village. The food is wonderful and in my opinion it’s the best restaurant in town. Also try and drop into the Antik Shop run by a lady named Esra and her father. They have all kinds of nifty and different pieces and their shop is well worth a visit. I higly recommend Goreme as the place to base yourself in Cappadocia, and I highly recommend the Kelebek as the place to lay your head.
