We had a fabulous time during our 3 night stay at the Kelebek. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Upon arriving at the hotel, we had a great introduction to the various attractions in and around Goreme. Soon afterward, we were whisked off to the Open Air Museum in the hotel's vehicle, just so we didn't have to tire ourselves with the uphill walk. Very thoughtful!
The hotel room was reasonable large, with a nice little fireplace. The staff would replace the wood when we used the fireplace. Very romantic to have this in our room, and the chimney worked well; no smoke in the room! The bed was very comfortable. We had room 17 with an amazing view from it's large terrace. The one afternoon that the weather allowed for hot air ballooning, we got some cool photos.
We enjoyed all our breakfasts in the relaxing dining areas, inside. (In warmer weather, dining al fresco was also available.) Additionally, we had a nice lunch and dinner during our stay. Next door is the stellar Seten restaurant. Our dinner there was special. Excellent service!
On day we took advantage of one of the hotel's small group tours of the area's sights. We had an excellent guide, very personable and knowledgable. Fun company with other travels and amazing sights.
On our last day, we decided to take it easy and stay closer to the hotel for a day in. Since it had been rainy and cold, we took advantage of the hammam (down the steps from our room) for a wonderful Turkish bath and massage. We highly recommend their pampering!
Unfortunately, we did not get to experience the hot air ballooning due to poor morning weather. But with such a lovely hotel, we felt that we still had an amazing experience. This hotel should be at the top of everyone's list for Cappadocia.
