Mehmet is the dream-come-true hotel owner and general manager. A Turk by birth, he made his fortune in the U.S. selling carpets, and he has returned to his dream home to build and run the most luxurious and personalized hotel we found in Turkey. Views from the terrace by morning (fabulous breakfast) or late-day (some Turkish tea) are exquisite, looking out at the fairy chimneys just beyond. By night, make sure to stay in a "cave" suite or "cave room." Don't go for the newer accommodations; nice though they are and sunnier, the reason to stay at this cave suite hotel is to indulge in and enjoy cave living -- outfitted with all the luxe, modern details. We were in Cappadocia at the Cave Suites for 4 nights, enough time not only to enjoy the top tourist attractions (Open Air Museum, hiking, etc. ) but also to get to the distant valleys for hiking and some wonderful additional tourist attractions. Mehmet either arranged it all or told us how to do it. Without your noticing it, you'll find Mehmet everywhere -- supervising dinner at the restaurant he created; fixing the rain flap over the dinner terrace if bad skies are moving in; arranging every detail of check-out; reviewing maps and options at check-in. While there, also check out other restaurants like the Top Deck up the road. I can't imagine staying anywhere else, though there are other cave suites hotels. But definitely stay in a cave hotel. I still would love to turn my own home into a cave! (The hotel shares a tiny but workable swim pool across the road; you don't come here to swim; a Turkish bath operation is also shared, but I'd do a Turkish bath in Istanbul where you'll get a less expensive and more authentic version).
