“Great Experience”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

MDC is one of the newer cave hotels in Urgup and is situated approximately 15 minutes walk from the town centre although the staff were available to drive you if required. Our room was very large with a separate lounge area and a modern bathroom including spa. Unfortunately the bed was very hard, it lacked practical lighting and had a musty smell. The breakfast was average but the staff very helpful.

My husband and I just returned from spending 2 nights at the MDC Hotel in a cave room in Cappadocia region of Turkey. The room was amazing - modern while at the same time true to the region and Turkish culture. The hotel's location close to the nearby town of Urgup was very convienent. The 10 minute evening stroll back to the hotel from Urgup with the Turkish signature crescent moon in the sky will be a memory not long forgotten. Mustafa and his staff could not do anymore for you. They are professional and affable and nothing is a problem for them. I particular loved the breakfast when I was invited by the two Tukish women to sit with them as they led me through creating my own gozleme. I was able to learn first hand how to roll the gozleme dough to its wafer thin consistency from women who had probably made millions in their lifetime. Though the ladies and myself could barely communiticate in a common language, however through sign language and open hearts I was able to share in a unique experience (and great photo opportunity) while at MDC hotel.

If you are traveling on a budget, let this hotel be your one instance of pampering yourself. You will see the other descriptions of the staff and premises, they are all very accurate. The people who run this hotel know what service means and go out their way to make your time memorable.

My son, his wife and myself were there in April, we found it by using one of the travel agents listed on Tom Brosnahan's www.turkeytravel.com site.

Efendi Travel in Istanbul http://www.turkeytravelplanner.com/tourop/bakpak/efendi_travel.html provided great support as we were on a self conducted tour. They negotiated the rate at the MDC Hotel and it was everything they promised it would be. Nothing was too much trouble, the service was flawless. The breakfast was the best we encountered in Turkey. Loved the ladies making the pancakes. The dinner menu was excellent, the food very good, and the Cappadocian wine we tried was the best.

Interesting conjunction of the hotel on one side of the valley and farmer families on the other side, living in the type of caves the hotel is constructed from.

If you go nowhere else in Cappadocia, try and spend some time at this hotel it is worth every euro you spend.

Room Tip: The room we were given was fine. I think it used to be the stables in the cave complex.

My wife and I have just returned from a trip to Europe, which included 2 nights at the MDC Hotel at Urgup.

We were absolutely stunned by the outstanding service provided by the staff of the hotel, which commenced with being greeted by the hotel manager, Mustafa, before we had even arrived at reception. Nothing was a problem for Mustafa and his team.

The service was also excellent during the 2 terrific dinners, which we enjoyed at the hotel .

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the MDC Hotel to anyone contemplating visiting the unique
Cappodochia area in Turkey.

My partner and I stayed at MDC for a total of 5 nights and we could not fault this wonderful cave hotel. The welcome from the Guest Manager each time we arrived back every afternoon was so warm and sincere. We loved the huge cave apartments with their beautiful traditional decor and the history and fabulous energy. The staff were very friendly, the musicians each night in the dining room were an added bonus to our lovely traditional foods. Breakfast was very extensive in selection and was completed with the offering of traditional foods prepared by Yasmine. We recommend the MDC Cave Hotel without hesitation for anyone seeking comfort, great hospitality and care in their travels.
