We had a fantastic time in Cappadocia, which was in large part thanks to Mert Kura,
the Manager at Kelebek. He made us feel welcomed, comfortable, informed and safe (knowledge is empowering).
He freely offered insights, suggestions and recommendations which steered us to the best restaurants, wines (including from his own vineyard), scooter company, towns to visit, roads to take, etc.
We loved our room, with its heated marble floor, and charming fireplace which we used every night. The breakfasts were a cornucopia of delicious options, the restaurant served the best haydari we had in Turkey, and the staff everywhere was warm and attentive.
Having a hamam on the property was another plus. That was our first experience in a Turkish bath house, and the soap and scrub treatment (standard) was heavenly-- even nicer than our subsequent experience in Istanbul.
Another plus for the hotel, and the reason I was swayed to stay there, is that the tours which they arrange are for their hotel guests only, so you're not with large groups and big buses having a commercialized experience. At Kelebek, they believe in maintaining the beauty and sanctity of the area, even as they and the region grow to meet the demands of expanding tourism.
We will be back.
