I hesitated to write my review after reading some of the others but thought that would be unfair to the hotel and a loss for other travelers who want an exceptional experience. And the last thing this hotel is is average. The uniqueness in staying here is that you are literally staying in a cave room built into the tufa rock not some faux location. Yes, you may have to climb many steps to reach your room and yes, if you need to be shown around your hotel, this may not be the place for you. The rooms have multiple chambers and are not conducive to reading in bed if that’s a requirement for you. BUT if you want your breadth taken away at the sight of hot air balloons floating over the white rock landscape as you stand on you terrace or when you open your door at night to the starlit sky, a bright moon and the haunting song of the muezzin - call me crazy - this is the place to stay. And personally, my husband and I enjoyed the freedom of wandering around the property discovering things on our own - like the indoor pool and spa or the outdoor bar complete with couches and a hookah - rather than having an escorted tour. And the added convenience in staying here is you can walk to the town and enjoy a wonderful dinner (and lunch – we did both) at Ala Turks Restaurant. So if you are looking for a 4 Seasons like service oriented hotel this is not it; but for us this hotel hit the mark in cleanliness, location and uniqueness. Then again we visit this type of area for its cultural offerings and are not seeking high end service.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a room with multiple windows. Also, depending on you needs, inquire about the lo...

My friend and I stayed at the magical AH property for a couple of nights based on the recommendation of my parents who had stayed there a few years ago. The setting is spectacular and the staff were helpful. There were only two other guests in the hotel. We visited a local winery to taste wines and brought a bottle back to the hotel to enjoy during sunset on the terrace. We asked the hotel staff to provide us a corkscrew and two glasses and were rudely told we must drink the wine in our cave room and not on the terrace outside so we could enjoy the final sunset view from the terrace just outside our room! In the past few years other cave hotels have been built in the area. I would recommend another one that appreciates its guests and promotes their attempts to enjoy their holiday!

The hotel is unique, and carved into the hillside. Be sure to get help with your luggage, as your room may be way up the hillside. The room was roomy and the bathroom was well appointed and generous. We did not use the spa tub, but at least three could fit inside. The air in the room was fairly stuffy due to the Sept. heat. The hotel provided one little air mover, but it was not sufficient. Ask for more if you can get them. All the people on our tour just gave up on security for fresh air and left the doors and windows open to sleep. The breakfast conversation was then to find out what came into the room during the night (mostly cats and bats). I sleep with a CPAP machine and the poor maid was terrified when she saw me sleeping (my apologies to her). We did not have time to use the spa, but it looked lovely.

Room Tip: Ask how far up the hillside the room is located, and then you have to decide how many steps you want...

This is a boutique hotel but the experience left us speechless...

Expect a warm and friendly welcome and even compliments from happy staff... Language is limited to Turkish with little English... but fun and easy to communicate...

The moment we entered the room, we were amazed... It is a cave but spacious, romantic settings, beautiful decorations, jacuzzi in room, and everything you expect in a hotel... We decided to explore the hotel and spent the evening taking photos before heading for dinner at a nearby restaurant and walk...

On the first day, breakfast was delicious, fresh and healthy.. It might be important to note that when we went for our early morning tour the next morning, we missed breakfast however, the staff saved the breakfast (without us asking) and brought it to our room in a huge tray with everything you can imagine...

The hotel is located on a steep hill (like all other cave hotels) so expect some excercise when heading back to the hotel...

When checking out, my wife had to thank them for their services, had a ladies chat, and made compliments about the natural shampoo in the shower... a few moments later, the lady from the hotel came with a bottle of shampoo and gave it to her.. They even guided us around the resort and took photos of us with our camera and of course a group photo with the staff..

During day trips, we had to always return to the hotel before sunset to enjoy the scenery and have coffee at the outdoor cafe, while enjoying the cool breeze and sounds of tree leaves and birds, and listening to prayers around Goreme during sunset...

Friendly and helpful people, beautiful hotel, true Turkish hospitality, amazing place, great food, and would certainly go there again...

Its definitely unique hotel. The fairy chimneys, the layout of the property, an underground swimming pool, no airconditioning ( ha ha ) makes it a very different. Stairs were everywhere, i did miss a lift but not after knowing that it s a heritage property and very few changes were allowed by govt. I had two rooms of which one was great with amazing decor and other was above average but an bathroom made up for my kids. There are many types of rooms available, infact i didnot see any two rooms which had same layout except that all are cave rooms. Rooms are done up very tastefully. I did face language problem with staff but thats across turkey. Cappadocia is a must visit place in turkey and dont miss the balloon ride for anything
