“Goreme hotel walk from bus station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

Kismet Cave House is an exceptional boutique hotel, 400m walk from the bus station. If you are driving it also has free parking at the front door. The view from the restaurant terrace overlooks Rose Valley and the ferrie chimneys. Breakfast is fantastic. The hotel has a warm, cozy feeling with wood and stone floors and hand-woven carpets and kilims on floors, steps, and walls. My room had beautiful carved wood antique furniture, lovely curtains and bedspread, and absolutely new, modern tiled bathroom with jacuzzi.

The best part is Faruk, the owner, who speaks excellent English and will give you recommendations and a map for self-guided tours or he will organize your tour with a guide and driver (sometimes he takes you himself.) This is a family-owned business. You will enjoy meeting his entire family. Also, because this hotel has had top ratings in all the guide books for many years, you will enjoy meeting many visitors from all over the world, including many English-speaking visitors. Faruk can also get you discounts on restaurants, hot air ballooning, and any event or attraction in the Cappadocia region.

What a wonderful find in Goreme and a delightful owner in Faruk and his family. We strongly recommend it to others looking for a unique setting for their travels. Especially accommodating to families.

If you are coming to Goreme, then I don't think that you will find a better place to stay than Kismet Cave House! The place is very charming and the rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious. The hotel is a short walk from the town center. The breakfast is delicious and the views from the terrace are amazing. It is a great way to start your day with the spectacular views from the terrace!

Faruk helped make our stay in Goreme excellent. He told us about different tours and helped us select the ones we were most interested in. He booked our tours, hot air balloon ride and arranged airport transportation. I would definitely recommend the hot air balloon! It was absolutely amazing!

We stayed at Kismet for 3 nights and I don't think we could have asked for anything better. From the moment we walked in, Faruk & his family's warmth enveloped us. Our room was in a cave which made but very cool. Inspite of all modern amenities, there was a definite feel of old time charm and hospitality.
Breakfast was served on the first floor balcony. Traditional Turkish breakfast cooked by Faruk, served by his family and accompanied by the warm sun and cool climes.
Faruk was the perfect host guiding us each day - be it activities, places to see or restaurants to go to. Since Goreme is a small town, you can take advantage of discounts if you have Faruk's card or vouchers for the Hamam (which by the way is highly recommended).
Faruk can make all the booking for you - tours, ballooning, horse riding and airport shuttles. He even throws in free pick & drops if he's around to near by locations.
It's a safe hotel too. We left our 10 year old with her iPad (thanks to free wifi) and heade to the hamam.
All in all, a trip to remember in large measure owing to Kismet! I would recommend it to anyone, anytime!

Kismet means destiny or more simply luckiness, both will define your stay if you choose this cave house. Faruk and his lovely family are perfect hosts and the city could not be more magical.

We arrived late around 23:00 but Faruk was up waiting to welcome us warmly with Apple Tea and beautiful comfortable rooms. The next day he gladly helped us to arrange plans with a local travel agency for the next leg of our trip to Antalya. He also arranged for our balloon ride around the valley for our second day.

No place is more inviting or breath-taking in Turkey than Goreme and we truly believe no other accomodations can meet the perfect standards that Kismet sets. If you're planning a trip to Turkey don't miss out on Goreme, it's Kismet that you come here!

***If you are concerned about safety due to recent protests in the country, don't be! This part of the country has been unaffected by protests. Our stay was quiet and peaceful. I was never fearful for myself or my family. I didn't see one person who appeared to be protesting.***

It was our second time to stay at Kismet, and we were very pleased again. The hotel is on a quiet side street, but only a five minute walk from downtown Goreme. The rooms are clean and the beds might be the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The hotel is family owned and operated. They are great people and provide excellent service. The breakfast was great, and the breakfast balcony provides an excellent view of the hot air balloons taking off at sunrise.

Room Tip: Some rooms have huge jacuzzi tubs.

I stayed at Kismet in the Tulip Room. This was a nice room opening onto the dining/balcony area with views of the balloons in the morning from a small window. Comfortable bed and good shower. Clean and nice. Friendly people running the hotel. Good internet. Close to town but in a fairly quiet location.
