While honeymooning in Turkey, we booked at the last minute a sight-seeing tour to the Cappadocia region, and the good folks of True Blue Travel Agency in Istanbul had managed to get us an overnight stay at the MDC hotel in Urgup. What a huge treat it turned out to be! This luxurious hotel is brand new and is still working on a further expansion. It is located on the outskirts of the village and offers attractive views on the surrounding countryside. If you want the hustle and bustle of a big city, this will not be for you – we very much enjoyed the tranquility, waking up to the sound of birds and cows…
Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the hotel manager, who welcomed us with refreshing cold drinks before showing us to our spectacular King Suite. All rooms are built into existing caves; each room is different, but all are very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The restaurant is excellent too – don’t miss out on their lamb in yoghurt sauce! The wonderful staff was professional yet personal and actually managed to make our stay one of the absolute highlights of our trip - no small praise considering the magical environment of Cappadocia! Our only gripe about the MDC would be that it is located too far from Calgary, or we would be back tomorrow!
Do yourself a big favor and book a few days at this incredible hotel. It may well become one of the worst-kept secrets of the region very soon - try to get in now while they are not fully booked for months in advance yet…
