“First class service, classy accommodations”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We spent two nights at the Hotel Cave Konak with our 2 children. Our "room" was actually 2 bedrooms separated by a hallway and with private access to the terrace. It was one of our nicest stays in our 8 months of traveling. The accommodations were clean, tastefully decorated and with all the amenities we needed. (It did not come with an electric kettle, but Colleen got us one instantly.)

The classy accommodations was topped only by the service provided by owners Adnan and Colleen. They were incredibly knowledgeable about the area and gave us great suggestions on what to do and see, including what would be interesting for our kids. When our balloon ride had a problem, they followed up with the owner of the balloon company. In every case, they went the extra mile to ensure that our stay was a perfect as possible. Thank you Colleen and Adnan!

Room Tip: They have a variety of rooms, including cave rooms (which have a light shaft), but we loved our 2 be...

The owners and staff of this small cave hotel were so wonderfully friendly, helpful and professional. Colleen (one of the owners) helped us to arrange a driver, arrange tours, book the hamam and the Whirling Dervishes show. The hotel was clean and beautifully restored and within easy access of many shops, banks, and restaurants/cafes. Breakfast was lovely with fresh veggies, yogurt, cheese, and more. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We booked the Roman Suite which has a single bed on the top floor and a double bed in the cave below...

Thank you so much for your fabulous review! We are very lucky with our staff who are so kind and helpful – and we shall certainly pass on your praise. The Little Owl still visits us every day (Adnan still whistles “who who”), and our cat Patik is getting very interested in the swifts that have arrived! We greatly enjoyed your company hope we helped you make the most of your stay in this wonderful region. Love from all of us at Cave Konak, and all the best for the new job.

I cannot rate this place highly enough! The hotel owners Colleen and Adnan defined my time in Capadocia. It was immediately evident they are in this business for their love of helping others, and took equal delight in making sure my trip was the best possible. On top of that, the hotel is stunning. A historic network of beautiful old buildings, masterfully restored. Also, it's EXACTLY where you want to be in Urgup. Right in the middle of town, with a roof-top patio overlooking this anchient, beautiful place. Last but not least? The breakfast was superb, and --no suprise here!-- the service was amazing! Thank you so much for making my time with you such a delight!

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are situated right in the town center, with the very best view of the small town, the ancient once inhabited rocks and the countryside around: our rooftop breakfast terrace is a great start to the day with its uplifting panorama. Also being right in the center of town has its advantages as everything is at your feet in the evening. We appreciate that every guest is different, so try to get to know likes and preferences so that we can make the best suggestions for visiting the sights of Cappadocia. We thoroughly enjoyed your company and wish you many happy travels. Love from all of us at Cave Konak.

I need to write this review based on the service offered by Adnan at the hotel.

I arrived in Cappadocia and accidentally got the hotels confused; unfortunately my friend and I were staying in Has Konak Hotel. Adnan called the other hotel for us, offered us tea, gave us something to eat, and called a taxi to get us to our hotel.

We promised to return to his hotel again for a drink. Today he spent a long time explaining the whole region in detail and booked us a private driver for a customised tour for tomorrow. He showed us multiple rooms at his hotel, each one unique and beautifully appointed. It's such a shame we didn't have a booking here.

We then went up to the rooftop terrace where he made us tea, spoke more about our tour tomorrow and gave a recommendation for a restaurant that served tasty Turkish food.

Adnan understands what it means to give exceptional customer service. I would recommend booking a tour with him and staying in his hotel. One of the best hotel owners I've ever had the pleasure of meeting!

Thank you so much for your appreciative review. We also enjoyed the time you spent with us here at Cave Konak Hotel. Adnan is very proud that hospitality is an important part of Turkish culture, and he does not expect something from everything he does; the pleasure of welcoming others and communicating has its own rewards.

Being a professional tour guide, Adnan has knowledge of every corner of Cappadocia. Without proper information, guests would leave our region without getting to see most of it.

Cappadocia is one of the world’s most important cultural centers with its history as well as traditional local life; it is also one of the worlds most interesting and unique natural geographical wonders.

The more people visit this region properly, the more tourists will come and the longer they will want to stay, and the satisfaction of our guests will definitely help this to happen.

Even our modest hotel is a cultural value; it is like a museum as every room is original and different, and we restored it with pride. Because we have done most of the work here ourselves, it is a pleasure to share our property with our guests.

There is always a reason why everything happens, so it was fate that stepped in when you first appeared on our doorstep. The pleasure was all ours. Wishing you many happy travels, from Adnan and everyone at Cave Konak Hotel.

We were so lucky to stay at Hotel Cave Konak, as Adnan and Colleen were really so friendly and helpful. We would not have that much fun if we did not have Adnan's help explaining the region! We managed to discover lots during our stay and probably have seen more than what other tourists would manage to see in 3 days!!!
We stayed there in December 2013 - so the weather was cold obviously but our room was lovely and cosy! The hotel is historically important and the restoration was done nicely! Definitely recommended!

Thank you so much for your beautiful review. December was very cold this year – in fact the only time we saw snow! At the moment spring is starting, but we still have central heating working as the nights can be cold.

Our hotel was in the old Greek section of Urgup until the exchange of populations at the end of WW1. The hotel complex consists of a number of different houses, some going back 400 years, and each generation seems to have added or modified something. Our restoration is authentic while at the same time providing modern comforts. We hope readers will come and see our hard work.

We wish you happy holidays this year, too. Love from all of us at Cave Konak Hotel.
