Visiting Capadocia is a must. After 5 days in Istambul, getting away from the confusion to this amazing valley in the middle of nowhere is something worth every penny.
Ottoman Cave Suites was a very nice surprise.
Here's what you can expect:
-Rooms are amazing! Big, comfortable suites, with big chairs to rest, a super bed, a very spacious bathroon, great showers and a modern cave-look that'll make you feel like a sultan.
-Fresh, long and very turkish breakfast table, with lots of different foods for different tastes.
-A nice inner terrace, where you can spend time reading or sun bathing
-Great staff, they'll do everything you ask. I think that almost everyone speaks english there, and the young lady that works part time on the front desk also makes some delicious apple and cinammon biscuits. We were welcomed by a very nice team lead by Turkan(?) who is a very nice guy, too.
-The hotel will arrange you airport shuttles, baloon rides, touristic tours and meals - they work closely with a travel agency, so you can pretty much put everything in their hands and just relax.
What you can't expect is a pool and a minibar (they really should get one, or at least some other option to get food at night - because you can access the cold drinks in the terrace easily)
It's really worth going to Capadoccia. If you're travelling one week in Turkey, i'd advise you 4 days in Istambul and 2 days here. You'll get some deserved rest in this hotel. It's just a shame it doesn't have a pool, that would be the cherry on top.
You can get to Goreme in a Pegasus flight, it's a low cost company that has new planes, young staff, and runs on time. Its a 50minute flight from Istambul to Kayseri and then a 40 minute transfer to the Hotel in Goreme village, where the baloons are.
The village is nice, and the valley is full of ancient christian, muslim and roman history. We had a very nice tour, too.
Call the hotel, ask for the full package. And thank me later :)
