Can't thank our wonderful host Yavaz enough for his hospitality at The Doors Of Cappadocia.
We had two nights in this very spacious and enchanting cave hotel.The service was very friendly and exceptional we were even entertained by our host and his lovely wife at his home for dinner.
Thoroughly enjoyed the infinity pool on the rooftop which had wonderful views of the town and valley.A lovely way to finish the day relaxing poolside with friends. Our room was very spacious and all our needs catered for,i.e. wi.fi, hairdryer,tea making facilities,minibar and very good air.conditioner.
Looking forward to returning to this wonderful land one day.
Once again thank you Yavaz regards Lynne Stone.

Room Tip: WE had a room on the top floor had fantastic views.

Enjoyed the beautiful terrace area by the pool with access to wifi. Our room had a private terrace and was a roomy suite for a reasonable rate. When my flight was canceled the staff helped us rebook and were very accommodating providing a late checkout and adjusted our transfer to the airport. We loved having a cappuccino early morning by the Infiniti pool watching balloons float overhead. Ideally located close to hiking trails, restaurants but quiet.

We were visiting Turkey in August. We stayed at the Doors of Cappadocia Hotel. This is a 4 star hotel at a very reasonable price. Doors of Cappadocia is strategically located next to top flight restaurants, hikes, and balloon rides. If you are an adventurous individual or couple, Doors is the place to stay. After a day of trekking, cool off in the infinity pool with fantastic vistas. Enjoy!

Like you are probably doing right now, I poured over TripAdvisor, Bookings.com, and spoke to everyone I know (and don’t know) in order to build the perfect itinerary for my trip to Turkey. After a wonderful week and a half 1st time visit to Turkey, I am proud to report that I did pretty darn good… That said, I’m going to pay it forward and make your search easy for you… By way of background, I did 3 days in Istanbul, 2 days in Cappadocia and 4 days in Bodrum then back to Istanbul for on final night. I flew Air Pegasus within Turkey. I suggest you pre-book hotel transfers from each airport (just call your hotel a couple days before your arrival and request a transfer - some charge, some offer a free service).

My stay in Cappadocia was perfection thanks to the Doors of Cappadocia. I was able to book all logistics for my stay from the U.S through the hotel Concierge (a wonderful gentleman who I later met named Vehbi). We stayed in a junior suite. It was a spacious room which perfectly blended the rustic Cappadocia cave hotel experience with clean and very modern minimalist finishes. It looks as dreamy as the pictures on the website. The hotel also features a rooftop infinity pool (awesome as it gets very hot in Cappadocia). My girlfriend unfortunately fell very ill during our stay in Istanbul (prior to our arrival in Cappadocia) so we were unable to do the Hot Air Balloon flights but from the rooftop we were able to watch the Hot Air Balloons take flight in the morning and this was equally enchanting; in fact, the view was so magical that I proposed to my now fiancé on their rooftop at sunrise! Thank you Ozge for being so helpful during our stay and for welcoming us into your home - Doors of Cappadocia is very lucky to have you. Also thank you Vehbi for taking care of all the logistics leading up to our arrival and for helping me prepare for the proposal. Both of you and the hotel itself, made our stay ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL and I look forward to returning. Quick checklist: hotel is modern and clean yet has all the charm of the famed cave hotel experience characteristic of Cappadocia. The hotel is walking distance from everything including the restaurants, ATV and car rental stores, and souvenir shops. The air conditioners work well, the swimming pool is a nice plus, the bathroom far exceeds expectations, and the bedroom and living rooms are very well sized (I can only speak for the suite). The hotel will book anything and everything you need for your stay from airport transfers to Hot Air Balloon tours. The only potential drawback is that the check-in receptionist office is located on top of the property and so upon arrival you have to climb what feels like a small mountain of steps to check in (small price to pay). I CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE THAT YOU WILL LOVE YOUR STAY - especially if you opt for a junior suite. 5 Stars without a doubt!

Room Tip: Ask for a junior suite.

After two weeks touring from Istanbul , We had the best experience of Turkish hospitality at Doors of Cappadocia. Yavuz and his staff couldn't have been more helpful , and the facilities are outstanding . Rooms are stylishly appointed , and the rooftop restaurant, pool, and deck with 360 degrees views is just spectacular . I strongly recommend this to any Aussies coming to Turkey .

Room Tip: Just ask the staff what you desire . There are cave rooms lower down, but we enjoyed the suites high...

Doors

Let's get this right out of the way: as a concept, this hotel is very nicely designed around a courtyard, with lots of stairways (pack lightly!) and twisting stone corridors. The pool on the top level is very small but the view is wonderful and the sun chairs are comfortable (parasols would be a plus, given the scorching heat). Globally, the pictures you see on the web do reflect what you can expect to get, at least at first glance.

Our room was very nice and spacious, solid stone with vaulted ceiling and miniature fireplace, a bit dark, of course, but with a big man-height window opening on the inner courtyard... But wait a minute... it does NOT open? Ever? And the nice stone terrace beyond it is not a terrace at all but a passageway where other people walk while they peek into our bedroom, so we must keep the curtain drawn at all times, and bye-bye to the light and the nice view over the courtyard? Now THAT's a surprise...!

And speaking of surprises, what about those power plugs that are associated with a light switch (no issue there) but are also fed power by the said light switch, so that when you insert your phone charger into one when going to bed, and then kill the light, when you wake up in the morning your phone is dead because you unknowingly killed the power to the plug at the same time? Now THAT is clever engineering too...!

Along the same line of thinking, one might also mention the plastic, functional tray equipped with a kettle. The fact that the tray rests atop a small fridge plopped unceremoniously onto the (nice) flagstone floor instead of being hidden in a cabinet could also be mentioned, but more significantly, one cannot miss the fact that there is... well, NO power plug within reach (unless you wanna chance unplugging the fridge?). So, you have to take both the kettle and its base to some other plug somewhere in the room... and make sure you don't forget to turn on that switch, otherwise the kettle will never boil, no matter how long and hard you watch it.

And --wait: I was over-criticizing, there IS a pair of INDEPENDENT (yes! the gods be praised!) power plugs... except they're right by the bed on your partner's side, so don't use any of those to boil the water in the morning or the noise will wake her up... Mmmm... Aren't we now back to square one?

The nice stonework is also marred here and there by thick pencil marks of where the stone should have been drilled to install a light, or of the contemplated frame of the bathroom door that ended up narrower (see photos). The bathroom itself, although cavernous (but that's the name of the game of course), is roomy and nicely designed with a large stone shower. Too bad the towel hanger has been half-destroyed and not repaired, it now hangs dejected and almost useless from the wall (see photo). Too bad as well that some previous guests found it apposite to write their names on the wall, graffiti-style, which apparently escaped the attention of the staff. True, some other wrote up an addition on another wall, but hey... this is the Orient! (see photos).

Most of those are irritating quirks and flukes (well, except the non-opening, look-through "window") that you might want to overlook in different circumstances, but that are hard to forgive considering how much you're being charged for the room. And by the way, ONE dose of shower gel in a double room is NOT enough (didn't I just mention room charges?). The next day, we had two, so I thought it had been an oversight, but the day after there was NONE and we had to ask Reception for some... and the markings on some of those little bottles are so rubbed off that it looks like they've been repeatedly reused and refilled, and this was a first for us as well! Let me also add that things could have been a lot fluffier on the towel front.

After such a litany, the fact that the washbasin's faucet is mounted the wrong way, so that it supplies hot water where cold should come out, and also the fact that the close up mirror is unusable because it won't stay in place, having not been mounted vertically, are mere trivialities.

The bed, while not very wide, is OK and of good quality... but why scrounge and give only two pillows? That's one more trip to Reception to ask for more.

The wifi works, albeit not very strong nor very fast, avoid this hotel if you depend on it professionally or otherwise. One wishes the same could be said about the air conditioning, because without any openable window and the natural buildup of humidity in a troglodyte habitation, you'll need powerful air conditioning to chase away the warmth and the dampness... unfortunately, even at its lowest setting, our Turkish machine was not really up to the task (it paired nicely with the anaemic hair dryer!).

Breakfast is served in a very nice room with great views, but remains very basic, Turkish things of varying quality and some days they have what passes for sausages. Don't be too late for breakfast either (limit is 10) because there will be no more water in the boiling machine... Which doesn't matter much as they will have run out of tea bags too! By the way, it's the Lipton Yellow kind, so bring yours if you're a connoisseur, unless you want to sample the fruit-flavored kind --yuck for me.

Finally, they say on booking.com that there is free private parking and that is NOT TRUE. There are 2 or 3 spaces in front, and with 17 rooms in the hotel, not counting the neighbors, they are always taken, so you end up parking at the bottom of the hill and walking your way back up!

Final, final note: the personnel are in general very nice (except at management level where they tend to exhibit the familiar holier-than-thou attitude, don't say hello, don't say goodbye), and even though they don't speak English very well, one manages to get by with gestures.

In summary, hotel premises and location are wonderful, but there is a lot of room for improvement where amenities, hotelier craft and the art if making guests welcome are concerned. One may be better off at one of the less expensive places in Goreme.

Thank you for all that you have made criticisms. The graffiti in particular has not been deleted, they all have separate memory except you never bothered anyone in your. But just because she was bothering you just cleared. For the cables behind TV, there's nothing we can do in the hotel and in all areas, historical stones used to make any modifications on them no chance of hiding into stone, bathroom towel hangers from our attention to escaped, they changed. However, I wish that the technical issues you told us while staying at the hotel.We are a new business, missing only 3 will be our annual, but here it would be more sincere that you told to ...Constructive criticism would be. We publish them here was to develop.

Thank you for your understanding.
