“Superb, undoubtably the best place we have stayed ın our 6 weeks of travel.”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

Kımset Cave house ıs full of character and offers beautıful tıdy rooms at a very reasonable prıce. It also home to the best breakfast ın Turkey and Faruk Keles the hıghly charasmatıc owner. In addıtıon to the very frıendly staff, Faruk ıs always keen for a laugh and all to happy to help ın any way possıble. Whether ıt be organısıng tours, drıvıng you to local hot spots or sımply negotıatıng a good prıce for your dınner, Faruk seems to know everyone ın town and always seems to be that much cheaper than the next guy.

I cannot speak hıghly enough of Kımset Cave House. The accommadatıon ıs superb, however what sets Kımset apart from other places we,ve stayed ıs the kınd frıendly staff. A true Turkısh experıance. You wıll not be dıssapoınted.

From the moment we arrived at the airport in Nevsehir until we left, Faruk made sure we were comfortable. Faruk, the owner, set up a guided tour, arranged our hot air balloon ride and offered to drive us to local attractions. His quoted fee was in line with the online fees. We had a wonderful breakfast on the terrace while watching the balloons rise. The hotel was comfortable and quite. It was the cave experience we were looking for. I highly recommend this hotel and Goreme as a respite from the crowds of Istanbul.

Room Tip: Lilac room had a jacuzzi tub for sore legs.

Excellent interaction with staff. Loved the rooms in the fairy chimney and very spacious, clean and comfort. the service was excellent , we were so well looked after and felt at home, Manager assisted in booking local tours and obtaining transportation. Manager fluent in English, Japanese and Turkish. Location walking distance to Goreme, buses, tourist stops and historical landmarks. Mr.Farook and his staff are great and went out of their way to make our stay really wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel and its staff.

The various reviews on this site give an excellent idea of the Kismet

Farouk the owner is just as excellent as the reviews indicate friendly, thoughtful and informed without being at all pushy.
The Kismet is a small charming quirky guest house rather than a fancy hotel as a guest house, it is excellent
We stayed in the cave room. We asked for it! We stayed in November, nights were cool but the cave room was warm clean and very comfortable. heaters were on when we arrived . Great Jacuzzi and plenty hot water.
Location was just fine, it takes about 2 minutes to walk to the centre of the town.
Farouk set up a balloon ride for me ( I didn't ask until 8.00pm) The rate of 135 was better than anywhere I saw in town and the company was very professional with good equipment and a very capable woman pilot who managed to land her balloon right on the trailer of the recovery vehicle!
Breakfast up on the roof was outstanding with a huge local honeycomb and lots of fresh ingredients. We wound up chatting to most of the other guests.

By the way, the sights in and around Goreme were amazing, Outdoor Museum, Underground Cities etc. Not to be missed.

In Istanbul we stayed at the Conrad Hilton... but I'd rather stay at the Kismet any night of the week

Charming 8 room boutique hotel! Great location, wonderfully helpful staff and the complimentary breakfast on the rooftop was superlative (all locally sourced natural ingredients i.e. the milk comes from their cow, grow their own tomatoes). And a panoramic view of Cappadocia's signature Hot Air Balloons launching at 7:00am every morning was particularly memorable!

We stayed at Kismet Cave for 4 days and it great value for money. Faruk is amazing host and so are all the people that work with him. They gave us great recommendations on excusions (and good prices), food and transportion (as we were travelling around Turkey).

The room are of large size and very comfortable. Our had a fire place and jacuzzi, TV and DVD with many channels and it base is very central.

All round great place.

I recently stayed at the Kismet Cave Hotel. Small (only 8 rooms) but very charming. Great location. The owner Faruk is wonderful. He really ensures you are enjoying your stay. Shukru (an employee) was extremely attentive to ensure that we had a comfortable stay. The breakfast, which is included, was great! I definitely recommend this hotel!
