“No complaints at all, but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

The staff at the hotel were very friendly, and there was a lovely view from the breakfast restaurant / terrace. Aside from that the place was average in nearly every way - the rooms were small but clean and tidy and the location was fine (not as close to the centre of town as some hotels, but still only an easy 10 minute walk). The wifi was very good, as was the heating in the room.

I certainly have no complaints about the hotel and enjoyed my time there, but there was nothing really special about it that would make me stay there again.

We stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days at end of October.
The rooms are very quaint and clean. The staff were very helpful. They suggested itineraries and helped us with requests to see "Turkish Night show" , even driving us there and back since no other transport was available.
Breakfast is good and they also provide dinner which is home cooked since the owner lives right next door.
The views from the hotel are fantastic - it faces fairy chimneys. Highlight of our days there was the morning when all the balloons from Goreme came up right in front of the hotel to put on a private show for us :)
We would recommend this hotel unconditionally. If anybody needs further information, please feel free to PM me.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the fairy chimneys

1st surprise - We are staying in a cave ! 2nd Surprise - the cave has a jacuzzi !! 3rd surprise - We have been upgraded to the honeymoon suite, JLT !!!

I am not a man of many words - But neither is Sinan, and all he did was - gave us some good suggestions, advice. The Red Tour and the Green Tour, the balloon tour is fantastic. Helped us with our incessant questions.
All this while keeping his 3 year old niece entertained :)

Easily the highlight of our tour - Cappadocia, we will be back !
Wonderful experience, Sinan - Thanks !

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and based on pictures and reviews we expected much better. We have a basement level cave (three steps down from the first floor) that was tiny with little window that looked up a main patio. Bed cover had holes in it and bathroom had lots of mold. It felt run-down. Our friends were staying in non-cave room that was better. Make sure you check your room before you agree to stay in it. Looks like they have a variety. Breakfast was not bad and an owner is friendly and talkative. The view from the patio is outstanding.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms in the lower level (three steps down from the patio).

Loved our stay here. Great location overlooking a valley near entrance to Pigeon Valley & opposite Esentepe Viewpoint.
There is an outside patio dining area & rest area to appreciate the balloons every morning - some gliding right overhead or in the valley opposite or the sunshine and the sunset.
Staff all very friendly and gave helpful advice & assistance - nothing too much trouble.
Watch out for the somersaulting pigeons!
We had a Standard room, which we preferred as there was a balcony right outside our door with an even higher view over Goreme.
Breakfast was good. Nice crusty rolls every day and a good selection of meat. cheese, spreads, fruit, cereals & drinks.
Musa the manager really cares about his guests and his business.

Room Tip: Standard Rooms have a nice shared balcony and windows, so get the sun. Great for summer.

Very helpful staff who ensures that each guest's travel plans are fulfilled by calling tour operators and verifying information. Nice views from the outside patio. Good breakfast

Room Tip: Try not to be placed in the rooms at the back of the inn. You will feel that you are not part of the...

I stayed with my husband in September, 2011. This Pansion is located on corner of hill and is very close walking distance from bus stop. The view from hotel was stunning. Especially, watch sunset while you have dinner. The room was clean enough. Best thing in this hotel was about people. Musa and other staffs were trying to help you in every way they could do. For example, I almost missed my balloon ride because of balloon company's mistake. But, one of staff called"Handsome guy" gave us a ride to the location at 6:30am! In addition, they felt so sorry about what happened in my balloon ride(very long story). He gave me a free wine bottle as a gift before I leave. You will not get this kind of hospitality from any other city's hotel in Turkey. Musa and handsome guy are talking to you all the time to make sure you are satisfied also. In addition, they allowed us to take a shower again after I checked out which I spent whole day out before my bus ride to another city. I asked same thing while I was in Selcuk,but it didn't worked out. They were not care about you after you checked out. In this way, SOS is really try to please you and care about you. Highly recommended! I also had pottery kebap as dinner and it was excellent! Thanks, SOS and we will stop by some point later again!
