“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

The rooms are excellent, beautiful, comfortable and spacious.
The hotel is immaculately clean and very nice.
The owner is very helpful and always ready to help for your stay be as pleasant as possible and you enjoy all the beauties of Cappadocia.
The rooftop terrace has a restaurant with a spectacular view of Goreme and the food is delicious.
I recommend Arch Palace-was undoubtedly the best hotel I stayed in Turkey

We stayed at Arch Palace for two nights in April. It completely matched up to all the reviews we had read earlier.

The hotel itself is very comfortable, but where it went from Good to Excellent was the help we got from Mustafa. We were traveling with our parents and had taken an overnight bus which arrived early in the morning. While we were technically booked only from that afternoon, Mustafa got us a room that was available and also offered us breakfast. Over breakfast he helped us plan the two day trip and book local sightseeing as well as a hot air balloon trip. Having grown up locally, he has in-depth knowledge of the region and is happy to share it over a cup of tea. For dinner, we wanted to try good local cuisine and he directed us to a place that is nearby, family run and is truly local food of high quality. A must try if you are free for the evening.

I would definitely like to go back to Cappadoccia to do more of the walking trails and would stay again at Arch Palace Hotel.

This hotel, run by Mustafa, is in all honesty a fantastic place to stay. You are greeted like a member of the family as soon as you arrive. We arrived dirty and tired after an overnight bus and were able to check into our room at 6am, so appreciated, and we were even given complimentary breakfast that morning. Whats more, when we were leaving after a few days for another overnight bus, we were able to use a shower room and relax on the beautiful terrace before we left, great. The rooms themselves are spacious, very clean and tastefully decorated, and the bed (with duvet!!) gave us the best nights sleep of our 3 week trip. Finally, Mustafa was very knowledgeable of the things to do in the area without being pushy, as so many hoteliers can seem to be in Turkey. Thank you Arch Palace for making our stay so special!!

We stayed at the Arch Palace for 3 nights and couldn't have been more satisfied with the location, the rooms, and the service. Mustafa served as an unofficial tour guide and provided priceless insight into how to see the best of the region within our limited time. The rooftop terrace is a beautiful place to start the day with breakfast and end the day with a bottle of local wine.

Having travelled 4 weeks in Turkey and seen many hotels, was very well surprised to
find a very good shower (and shower cabin) in Goreme-Capadocia, at Arch Palace Hotel. Comfortable room, great terrace with a very nice view of Goreme. The owner, Mustafa, is helpful and friendly and speaks very good English (what can make a real difference in Turkey sometimes). Being close to the central Mosque, it is inevitable to hear the early morning prays, but as tiny as the village is, it can be heard almost everywhere. The hotel has recently installed air-condition in all rooms, what is a plus as well. I would recommend the hotel - fair price for a good service.

We have really enjoyed our 3 days in Cappadocia, and would not hesitate to recommend Arch Palace Hotel as a great place to stay. As all the other reviews have said, Mustafa, the owner, is very friendly, polite and helpful. He makes you feel very welcome and offered us a choice of rooms when we arrived. We chose to have one of the smaller arch rooms downstairs, which was perfectly large enough for our needs and very atmospheric. The bathroom is quite small but modern and well equipped, with an excellent powerful shower. The roof terrace has great views over the village of Goreme and the hotel is only 1 minute walk to shops and restaurants.

Mustafa will gladly give you advice and help with organising tours, hot air balloon rides, or just with places to go walking in the local area. The hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia was the highlight of our stay and is definitely recommended. Also the tour to the Ilhara Valley, underground city and Selime monastery was very enjoyable.
