“Excellent, friendly service--become part of the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

Very nice place, excellent view, well located, and particularly good service. Moussa, the owner, helped us out in many ways, and made us part of the family. This is where I'll stay in the future if I come back to Goreme.

Room Tip: Go for a cave room

We spent 5 nights at SOS and thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience. The knowledgeable and hospitable owners and brothers, Musa and Sinan, go out of their way to make visitors welcome, and they made sure we got the most out of our stay in Cappadocia--from where to visit to what to do, where to walk, where to find good wine and good food. We had a great time touring the underground city and surrounding towns with Musa, a registered tour guide with many years of experience. We stayed in a cave room--which was an experience in itself. The room was very pleasant and the bed very comfortable. The hotel is ideally located, just out the centre and up a little hill with wonderful views of Goreme's fairy chimneys and looking out over Pigeon valley. The breakfast was delicious-especially the potato gozlemes :) All the staff were great. All in all, this place truly deserves its Excellent rating--which is more than can be said for some places on Trip Advisor!

Room Tip: Splurge and get a cave room!

Very nice view on the Pidgeon valley, nice rooms and perfect service. Try the fresh hand-made bread in the morning.
The owner, Mosa, is really nice: listen to his advice and you'll sure discover all the secrets of Kappadokia.

We took our first trip to Turkey and spent 5 days/4 nights at the SOS. What a fabulous place! It is very homey and comfortable. We stayed in one of the cave rooms, which we loved. It was amazing to wake up to all the hot air balloons flying right over the terrace, and I miss that sound in the morning! The view of Pigeon Valley from the terrace is spectacular. The breakfast buffet was very generous - delicious fresh produce and unsulfured dried apricots, yogurt, cereals, and their homemade borek, just to mention some of the items. The service was attentive, professional and warm - when Musa says he is welcoming you into his home, he really is. We felt so comfortable we didn't want to leave! :) Musa is also a registered tour guide, and can arrange anything you want for your visit. He got us onto a tour of the underground city and ancient monasteries, which was wonderful! He personally drove us to see places in the nearby towns and to do some of our souvenir shopping for our families and friends. He prepared dinner on two of the evenings - what a treat to have a delicious, home-cooked meal of traditional Cappadocian cuisine. I cannot say enough good things about Musa and his staff at the SOS Cave Hotel. You have to experience it for yourself! We will definitely be back.

We just came back from our 10 days work/vacation in Turkey and we spent four nights at the lovely, wonderful, homely...SOS Cave Hotel in Goreme. We really had a great stay and enjoy Cappadocia very much. We stay in the standard room and though a bit small but is clean and cheerful. On our third day to our surprised when we woke up we saw countless balloons from our window...and excitedly went out the balcony to watch the wonderful show.!!...We even do a short hiking to the fairy chimneys in front of SOS and another short walk along the path to Pigeon Valley...
We love the breakfast with a view each morning..from the terrace. The breakfast was ample for us. SOS is a small hotel with a homey and friendly feel to it..and Sinan, the Manager really take good care of his visitors. We enjoy talking with friendly Kemal too..(who wakes up early to prepare breakfast...each day :)). We even tried dinner at SOS cooked by Sinan, he really can cook...:)) that we even thought he made the crusty bread which we love...Kemal really gave a big laugh when we asked him about this..LOL.:)).
We were glad we'd chosen SOS as our base in Goreme...Thank you Sinan, Kemal and Mehmet...for your wonderful hospitality...! We hope to be back sometime in the future...( FARIDA & ROFIZAH, MALAYSIA )

Location is perfect. We can enjoy good views from our room and hotel. We can see 360 degree of view. :). We went on top of the hotel building also. We enjoyed the fresh air in the early morning while waiting for the breakfast be served.
The manager Sinan is a good cook. We had enjoyed our delicious dinner. If you would like to taste, you have to make a pre-order since he only cook by request just because to make sure the food is using the fresh one ;)

Room Tip: The top room is nice view from the window.

We spent three days in goreme, at sos cave hotel and we can definitely say that this is the best place to stay in cappadocia. All the other places to visit in the area are just nearby,easy to reach by car.
The view from the terrace is really amazing, at any time. Our rooms were exactly what we needed.We really miss the evenings on the terrace, with a cold Efes beer in front of us, while enjoying the nice, friendly conversation with the manager of the hotel.
In case that you are hungry,they will prepare dinner for you and all you can do is just sit and enjoy the typical cappadocian dishes. The food is more tasty than at a local restaurant and anyway much cheaper.
We are trully grateful for all their efforts to make our stay in Goreme perfect.

Warmest regards
friendly yours
