“Turkish Hospitality at Guven Cave Hotel. No One Can come Close.”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Apart form an incredible personal experience of meeting and becoming instant friends with the owner/operator Mustafa Durmus, who went out of his way to show me around in Goreme, Avanos and Urgup because I arrived too late to catch a tour was beyond my wildest expectations. He drove miles to take me to a spot where I had a photo taken at age 15 in front of a fairy chimney. When I showed him my photo (age 15 I am now 65) he recognized the very fairy chimney and drove me there to have the same pose taken in front of the very landmark. The landmark hasn't changed except the subject. me LOL. This kind of treatment went on with me and his other guests at the hotel. The facility is beautiful, clean, scenic, and close to the center. I will definitely stay there on my next trip. In fact I want to go back there now (I just got back) just to experience this kind of facility and people. Kings and Queens don't get treated genuinely like this in other lands.

Room Tip: The room with a terrace in front which sleeps is spectacular.

Comfortable premises, friendly and supportive staff. They also provide advices on tours in Capadocia and Balloon tours.

The hotel is placed near to the most important spots in town. Calm and tranquility are good adjectives as well.

Guven felt like home. The rooms were big and clean, and value for money was very good. We stayed for 3 days and I didn't want to leave because it was so homey. Mustafa, the owner, was an amazing help. His warm and hospitable personality made our trip even better. Mustafa gave us great recommendations and tips on what to do in Goreme. Overall I would highly recommend Guven.

We stayed here for 2 nights and the experience was superb! The hotel is managed by Mustafa and his team of 3. It makes you feel right at home. When we first arrived from our overnight bus, he offered us apple tea and breakfast (breakfast are usually not included in checkin day). Not only that, he's more than willing to share his life in cappadocia, his family and his experiences with us. He's always ready to help you plan your itinerary.

They make you feel right at home with the cleanliness and amazing cave experience in the 350years old cave, with the most hospitable team who are sincere and genuine in making your experience a perfect one. Most importantly, we felt so safe staying at this hotel, as the compound is monitored by CCTV 24/7 personally by the team. Even our deposited luggage was locked up in a safe room after checking out. I highly recommend this hotel is you are looking for not just a cave hotel, but a homely cave experience.

We stayed at Guven Cave Hotel 2-4 May 2013. This is a small, intimate and charming hotel, with Mustafa and his staff being the perfect hosts. Not only did they wait up for us to arrive at 10pm, he also ordered food for us, assist us in planning our days there and arranged for our hot air balloon trip. The next day Mustafa drove us around in his personal vehicle to venues. The standard reply on any request: "Off cause, no problem", is not just a reply,this is also the action taken to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

I will recommend anybody visiting Goreme to stay at this hotel. It is a small, basic but a beautiful place, managed with a lot of love and care. Also very central and within walking distance of the most popular sites.

Well done to Mustafa and his team!

We has a fantastic stay at Guven Cave Hotel and would definitely stay there again. The hotel was charming with comfortable and clean rooms and was only a short walk from restaurants and the bus terminal. Mustafa was an informative and excellent host who recommended lovely restaurants, gave us lots of great advice about the area and organised our hot air balloon ride, tours and transfers. I would highly recommend Guven Cave Hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Goreme.

Excellent location and perfect service.
If the atmosphere of the place is most important in yours priorities, stay in Guven and you will feel like home. For the very good value you will enjoy clean rooms, perfect service and good selection of local product for breakfast. But the most important is the attitude Mustafa's (host) to his guests. He is very helpful and will give you the best tips and good prices of local attractions. Highly recommended as one of the best places where I stayed so far.
