My wife and I can't say enough about this hotel.
First off, I would like to mention the unbelievable service we got. It started with the owner of the hotel, Murat. He reached out to us via email to see if we wanted an airport pickup, which we did and I sent him all of our flight info. He got back to me a couple of hours later to let me know that my flight had been cancelled which we didn't know about. If Murat had not checked on our flight we would have been stranded at the airport.
When we got to the hotel we met Murat and he promptly asked us if we would like to take a hike through the Red Valley the following morning. We met him and a small group of other tourists the following morning at breakfast. He took us on an amazing early morning hike through the Red Valley, giving us all sorts of insight about the area. When we got back to the hotel after the hike we asked how much the hike cost and he wanted no money for it. He took us on the hike because it was something he personally liked to do. When you are in such a touristy area it is almost unheard of that someone would take you on a tour and charge nothing for it because it is something they love to do.
Now on to the room. We stayed in a room with a large window looking towards Goreme and the view was amazing. I woke up at sunrise to one of the most incredible sights I have ever seen. The view from the window allowed me to see all of the hot air balloons take off in the morning. It was so breathtaking that I woke up my wife and we laid in bed with the windows open so we could look at the view. If you stay at this hotel it is worth the extra money to get one of the rooms with a view. (I posted a picture of the view with the balloons)
Also, the breakfast was great. We had been staying at other hotels with the standard mezze breakfast, but there was something great about the breakfast at Takaev. The view from the terrace definitely helped.
When we checked Murat personally drive us in his car to our destination, what unbelievable service!
My wife and I cannot recommend this place enough.
