Hotel is charming, offering wonderful views, located on a hillside above Goreme, a town situated inside a national park in Cappadocia. Rooms are less expensive and smaller than the sister hotel next door, but even tho my room (114) was small-ish, it was nicely furnished with local textiles and rugs. It had a private terrace as well. All rooms are unique.
One note: the bathroom (modern, spotlessly clean, well designed) was down an interior stair case on a separate level - must confirm with the hotel in advance if you cannot handle this kind of situation. Breakfast was fine out on the lovely terrace all three sunny mornings I stayed. The day-long tours were arranged by the in-house Heritage Travel agency and there is a turkish bath/spa on premises as well. One guide in particular was excellent - Cihad (not sure of the spelling). Had a delicious dinner at the Kelebek restaurant one evening (try the tandoor lamb!), and ate at the more up-market restaurant at the hotel next door as well which was good too. Great red Cappadocian wine not to be missed! Kelebek had lots of sitting areas both indoors and out, where you could relax and read if you had the time, which we didn't.
Staff was friendly, ready to help when needed, such as carrying luggage up steps, handling billing/check out, etc. I'd go back for sure. Only small criticism was that they could have used more lighting in the backroom, given that it did not have a window.
