“Best Place in Turkey”
Reviewed 30 May 2011

We spent 3 nights at the Arch Palace and enjoyed a great stay. We arrived at the hotel after a 15 hour-trip in bus and we could have our room right away in the morning. What a luxury ! Great bed under arches and we had the best sleep since we had arrived in Turkey ! The terrace on the roof is amazing and offers a great view of Goreme/

Mustafa was a great help to visit the region. A very nice encounter in our trip !

The arch palace in cappadocia is where my sister and i stayed for a week! The owner Mustafa and his family were so welcoming and went out of there way to help us out and fill us in on all the facts we needed to know about the area! The rooms were beautiful and very homey with the traditional turkish culture coming through with the carpets! The view from the terrace upstairs was to die for!! especially when the sun was setting and in the morning when the sun was rising with all the balloons in the air!! It was sad to say good-bye at the end of the trip because they really made us feel like family!! Such an amazing experience! I DEFINATLEY RECOMMEND IT!! :)

Arch Palace is a very neat hotel, with stylishly decorated rooms and interior in local design. It has perfect panoramic views from the rooftop terrace on the surrounding landscape of fairy chimneys. The service was excellent and customer-friendly, the hotel offers rich local breakfast buffet. It was a joy to meet the owner of the hotel, Mustafa, who is well versed in local matters and is always ready to give you the best advice to make your stay in Göreme and in its surroundigs a happy experience.

I stayed at the Arch Palace with my 86 year old Father for four days in May, it is difficult to see how our stay could have been batter, The hotel is a restored stone-built village house and certainly lives up to its name with the arched stone ceilings in every room. The location is very good, within a few minutes you can be in the centre of Goreme village or on a path overlooking the valleys.

Mustafa and his family are superb hosts. Mustafa is a local man and has extensive knowledge of the area that he is more than happy to share. He got me a great price on a balloon ride as well.

The best thing of all about the Arch Palace is the breakfast, the best on our 3 week trip in Turkey. This is served on the rooftop terrace giving extensive views over the village.

To sum up, the Arch Palace is a very peaceful hotel, with great staff in a stunning locationm. I can wholeheartedly reccomend staying here.

We stayed in the family for a party of 5. The room was clean and comfortable. There were plenty of hot water and good water pressure. The wireless wifi was flawless, no crashes or down time during our entire stay. The children love the soft duvet so much that they wanted to take them home (but of course we said no.) The owner Mustafa was so helpful. Upon our arrival he gave us a tour map along with very helpful advice to help with our trip planning. Mustafa and his wife serve up a nutritious breakfast with tea, juice and coffee. Mustafa helped us with EVERYTHING, including solving our cell phone trouble, bus ticket questions, reservation to see the Whirling Dervishes, baggage storage, and a couple of much needed rides. We loved our Cappadocia trip, and it would not be nearly as enjoyable without Mustafa and his family. In short, it's like having an uncle in Göreme! Thank you for everything Mustafa. We love you. You are welcome to America. :)

As I write this review from the Arch Palace Hotel I am watching 27 hot air balloons pass by my bedroom window with the Cappadocian pinnacled scenery in the background.
We have spent five wonderful days here. The room ( # 202 ) is spacious, the buffet breakfast is abundant with fresh bread, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, borek, cheeses etc.
The best part of the hotel is the owner, Mustafa. You are treated like family here. Mustafa has lived in the area for many years and knows how to accomplish everything that a tourist needs. Bus tickets somewhere, the Green Tour ( highly recommended ) ballooning or whatever. When you arrive he will tell you all of the possibilities for hiking, touring etc. but will never try to push you into buying anything. The choice is yours.
Mustafa is always around and has time to sit with guests and discuss Turkey, answer any questions, discuss politics. He is a wealth of information. Be sure to use his knowledge.

We spent 4 nights here and were warmly received by Mustafa, the owner and his staff. He was so friendly and helpful and organised our days there. Very useful tips on sights and places to eat. It was wonderful to get to know the place by someone who grew up in Goreme so knew the place well. The room was very comfortable and large-absolutely spotless. Hotel was beautifully decorated with traditional carpets and objects from the region and the breakfast was exceptional. I would definitely recommend staying here-well done Mustafa!
