Canyon View was selected by us based on Tripadvisor reviews - and we were not mistaken with our selection. We arrived late at night - and our host Mustafa was waiting for us even at 11 PM to check us in and offer us hot apple tea.
Stayed in room 6 and it is an original cave room. The hotel is small and has 6 rooms. The rooms are gracefully done with lots of carpets and there is a feeling of comfort in all the rooms. Nice and clean toilet. Arrangement for (unlimited) tea and coffee in all the rooms and it comes without any extra charge. There is a elaborate breakfast spread and do try their omelet!! Its excellent. Our room had two windows, so there was no claustrophobic feeling in the rooms which is common in many of the cave rooms in other hotels. Most of the rooms seems to have windows, but do check with the hotel before you book. Some of the rooms have nice balconies that provides wonderful views of the valley. The hotel provides home cooked dinner only if notified by noon. Dinner is charged separately.
Mustafa arranged for our balloon ride where his brother Seyit is the pilot. And we got a very good rate as compared with the other companies that I had talked with earlier. Mustafa also planned our sight seeing trip and suggested a route that we should follow. Mustafa went out of the way to come at night on our departure date and drop us at the bus stand. And let me mention another incident that talks a lot about Mustafa. The bus ticket he had helped us to buy had been overcharged slightly. When notified, Mustafa talked with the bus company, got the refund and transferred the money to our next hotel where we were staying. Just amazing!!
Finally, this hotel is not for people who want luxury or service of a star rated hotel. Canyon View is for those who want to stay in a quiet and comfortable hotel which provides personalized service.
