“beware of king suites”
Reviewed 14 September 2009

Just returned from a pleasant to trip to the Kelebeck Hotel. However, just one point to note - we booked a King Suite no. 109 for 5 nights and a cost of 120 euro per night and room 17 at 70 euro for our last night. We found that Room 17 was actually a much nicer room with a huge terrace overlooking the swimming pool and that breakfast for these rooms was served in the main building where there was a very good choice of cereals, eggs, juice, different kinds of breads etc. Breakfast for the King Suites was served in the Rose Garden where we were served bread and cheese and one fried egg each every single day - for 5 days! We also found room 109 to be very dark and whilst it did have a very small balcony, there was hardly room to sit on it on the extremely hard wooden chairs supplied. I would recommend the Kelebeck but don't waste your money on a King Suite.

This was the most wonderful experience imagineable, the service was above and beyond and always with a smile. One member of the staff, Pinar is like a dynamo, it is hard to believe she can accomplish so much. I would highly recommend doing one of the tours that the hotel co-ordinates early in your stay, it really helps break the ice with your fellow travellers and the guide has extraordinary knowledge of the history and geography of the local area, something you just couldn't get travelling on your own. There seems to be such an abundance of staff, ready willing and able to help you with all your needs.
This was to be the trip of a lifetime, a one and only, but now we are planning on trying to get back here. The architecture is rustic, there is a friendly, homely atmosphere you can only take your hat to the owners of this business they have done a wonderful job, creating a delightful escape from the rat race.

We stayed one night at this hotel - and was one of the highlights of our trip to Turkey. We stayed in one of the Cave Rooms which cost only 35 euros per night including Breakfast. The breakfast is one of the best I have had at any hotel - what a choice! The room was amazing - so authentic to be staying in a cave style room overnight. Friendly and helpful staff, amazing location and view over Goreme is one of the best. Highly recommend anybody to stay here! Five stars!

Our stay at the Kelebek Hotel was without a doubt the highlight of our trip to Turkey. Hassan and the other managers and staff at Kelebek were welcoming, knowledgeable, and fun to chat with, and they run a really terrific hotel. It's very elegant, but not at all stuffy; the staff as well as the space itself have a wonderful laid-back charm. The hotel building is gorgeous, situated on a quiet street off the main street in Goreme, with a stunning view of the valley. It's beautifully decorated with several charming terraces where you can sit and eat breakfast, lunch or dinner, sip tea, or just read and enjoy the view. Also has a nice swimming pool, small spa/massage/Turkish bathhouse on site (which we didn't visit -- the prices were much better than anything we saw in Istanbul, though), and an adorable hotel puppy.

And the breakfasts! Buffet-style offerings of Turkish breads and pastries, fresh and dried peaches, figs and other fruits, yogurt and cheeses, tomatoes, olives, and spreads, as well as more traditional cereals and muselis. It was absolutely delicious -- I get wistful thinking of it.

When we were there in August, the hotel was offering its residents 2 all-day tours that leave right from the hotel -- one historical sightseeing tour that involves a short walk through the Rose Valley (as well as a visit to one of the underground cities and several frescoed Byzantine caves), and another more outdoorsy tour that involves a longer hike through the Ilhara Valley (and a stop at the rock-cut Selime Monastery and a smaller underground city in Guzelyurt). We did the latter tour, reasoning that we wouldn't be able to get to Ilhara Valley on our own, and enjoyed it very much. The next day, we visited the Goreme Open-Air Museum (which is within walking distance of Kelebek Hotel) -- and did our own self-guided tour.

We stayed in one of the 2 smallest rooms in the Tashkonak Annex, which is a separate building just down the street from the main Kelebek building. (We had our breakfasts at the annex, but they were, as far as I could tell, the same thing as what was served on the main Kelebek terrace.) Our room was comfortable and very clean, had a good view, and was basically everything we'd want from a room (we chose the smallest because we didn't plan on spending much time in it, and indeed we didn't -- there's too much to do in the area!). The value was excellent.

Thanks for a wonderful, rejuvenating visit. With luck, we'll be back -- for longer next time!

Just wanted to echo all the great reviews. We had a really nice stay here, 3 nights. The breakfast we had here was the best for our entire vacation. Very good value.

Our experience was very similar to the good reviews already written. Helpful and friendly staff, good rooms, lovely views and nice tours. Whilst we were staying here, we had a minor medical emergency (sprained ankle) and the staff at the hotel were wonderful. We can't thank them enough for their help.

The Kelebek Hotel is a great hotel in Goreme Cappadocia. The rooms were very comfortable, the staff speaks English well and the restaurant serves very good food. It is also very fancy by way of amenities, a pool, computers to use, a spa and yet doesn't lose it's Turkish charm. I had a very enjoyable stay. The negatives about the hotel though: it is not centrally located, but rather up the hill from the town center (count on a 15-20 min walk uphill to get back to the hotel), it is not very authentic because you are pretty far removed from the town in a hotel full of well-to-do tourists enjoying the spa.
