We enjoyed a fabulous 3 night stay at this beautiful hotel in an ideal location in Goreme.
Reception was more like an orientation that was very helpful. The entire staff is friendly and will help you with most anything. They can arrange tours, taxis, dinner reservations, etc.
We had a charming cave room that was very large and had a large bathroom as well. No a/c but the window is left open(their are bars so no one can enter) and an oscalating fan. Comfortable bed with nice linens. 2 sitting chairs and coffee table with a small fireplace for cool nights or cold days. Closet, small safe, good lights(room is dark). Wood floor. The bathroom was all marble and tile. Large vanity with a very nice size shower w/good hot/cold water pressure. There was also a faucet and copper bowl for throwing water on yourself...like the Turkish do. There is a drain in the floor so not to worry :) Quality soap/shampoos/lotions, etc. Very quiet...we slept like babies.
Breakfast is included in your room rate and it was a large variety of items. Mostly the same everyday. Sometimes diff. breads/pastries/cakes. You can sit outside on the lovely terrace that has a terrific view of the area. Or, tables inside if you prefer. Served from 8-11 am. They also serve lunch and dinner froma limited menu. There is a bar for beer, wine, raki, cocktails, etc. There are several rooms for sitting, watching tv/movies, computer usage, a library, etc. All very clean and cozy. You can easily meet other guests. There are stairs everywhere so be prepared for that. Stairs, stairs and more stairs.
There is a small pool with another great view. But, it was not taken care of too good. Cushions were not on the lounges, some chairs were broken, umbrellas not up, etc. If they straightened it up we believe alot more folks would use it or at least relax there. There is an outside bar but it was not open. You can get cocktails/drinks/food from inside though. This is the only area of the entire hotel/grounds that needs a little TLC.
They gave us a lift(no charge) to the Goreme Open Air Museum as well as some of the nearby restaurants. How nice is that! They have reasonable laundry service too. You get a 10% cash discount on the room portion of your bill. Also, a spa is on property.
If you go out the back entrance of the hotel, it literally takes 5-7 minutes to walk into town. We did not realize that at first.
Cappadochia is a remarkable part of Turkey that you must see. And, as far as the Kelebek Hotel...only 2 words are needed...STAY HERE.
