Whenever travelling to a country while you do not speak the language, the hospitality of the staff in the hotel would make the world of difference. Luckily for my husband and me, Canyon View Hotel offered the warm hospitality and support for us, along with the awesome hotel itself
We booked Canyon View Hotel via Email. It was painless. Moreover, we booked our airport transportation, balloon trip, and even our plane ticket through the owner of the hotel. Everyone in the hotel was down to earth, honest, and eager to help. (I cannot say the same thing about some of the other places we visited in Turkey)
We arrived late at night via the shuttle arranged by the hotel owner. The hotel looked amazing at night with great view of the valley and the perfect amount of lighting without losing the authentic touch. The room itself is simple, yet full of culture. We had a room (#3) with the patio, and its view was fantastic both at night and during the day. The Jacuzzi was a pleasant surprise as well. Their breakfast buffet had quite a selection, but the highlight is the omelet made to order. Let me tell you, I would pay for one night of stay just for the omelet. It was made in a traditional Turkey cooking pan with local spice that offers tons of flavors, and of course, butter butter butter.
We were able to book our balloon tour with the owner’s brother, who gave us a price. And as far as I can see, the tour is exactly the same, if not better.
Unfortunately, I felt sick due to all the travelling on our last day. Luckily, the hotel staff was more than helpful. The owner took us to the local pharmacy to purchase medicine, and wife of the owner prepare special food for us as well. We had to change our travel plan, and the hotel staff helped us with all the booking. Honestly, our life could have been a lot worse if it wasn’t for them.
All in all, it was a great experience. You can book a fancy 10 star hotel, and at the end of the day, it’s the people that make the difference. In my opinion, Canyon View offers both!
