I had wanted to stay in the highly rated Kelebek Hotel (which is just a few feet away from the Canyon View) but they were full so I opted for the Canyon View, which turned out to be a very pleasant surprise and better value than the Kelebek.
This is a very family-style place: the main space is entrance hall, breakfast area, reception, and children's play area all in one. The hosts (two brothers and their families) are wonderfully helpful, polite and knowledgeable. The breakfast is abundant and adequate, though it can have more or less variety depending on the day.
My room was great--it had that real cave feel, and all the nifty nooks and crannies typical of such places. The bathroom was simple but spacious and clean. Unfortunately it was not heated, so in March it was quite cold in there (in contrast to the warm, carpeted room). The only issue with the room was lighting--just like a cave, it has only two really tiny windows. In March it was cold and snowy outside, so being holed up inside was fine, but I can imagine on sunny summer days one can feel like a real troglodyte in there...
