“Fantastic stay in a cave room, helpful and friendly owner”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

If you are looking for perfect and relaxing gateway to Kapadokya this is the place to book. It was located in small friendly village about 10 km from Goreme. Best to have own transportation to get there, but we rented a scooter and traveled around. It was fun.
Hotel is quite luxury. We had beautiful and authentic cave room with comfy beds and Jacuzzi bath. Water , tea facilities were replenished every day, room was extremely clean. Great cave experience indeed, very romantic. Hotel was small, but has extensive terrace with wonderful view for surroundings. There was another hill with caves opposite the hotel and you could notice ancient early Christians drawings on them. What an unique and authentic place! My husband says-hidden gem!It was indeed.
Owner of the place was really polite, professional, local gentleman. He would do anything to make you enjoy your stay. He served really delicious Turkish style breakfast with very fresh ingredients, Turkish coffee and tea. He also offered us to eat traditional Turkish dinner which was delicious.
When we gave back our scooted in Goreme he kindly offered to come and pick us up at night even though he was so busy with check-ins. Truly wonderful and talented man. Very informative and willing to help with anything.
There were two lovely ladies from village helping him with housekeeping, they were polite and smiley, even though we could not communicate due to language barrier. They all made us feel at home.
I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for hidden gems and wants to be further from crowds. Experience true hospitality not spoiled by materialism and western civilization. Real Anatolian hospitality with smile.
Perfect!

Room Tip: we has turquoise room which i loved but we saw pearl room and that would be my next room of my choic...

If you are looking somewhere quite, definitely go to Babayan Evi.

We have stayed here four nights and enjoyed it very much. The owners made their best to make us feel at home.

The location of the hotel is further away from the crowds and make it perfect place to rest complemented with a nice view down to the valley.

The rooms are decorated with a nice taste and creates a very cosy atmosphere.

Totally recommended.

We are just returned to Italy and this merveillous boutique hotel is one of the 3 places I miss more of our journey of 10 days in Turkey (perhaps equal to Fatih quartier inIIstanbul and to the fairy chimneys in Goreme...).
It is one of the best solutions I can suggest to all visitors who rent a car (1/2 hour from Nevsehir airport - where we landed - or even from Kayseri airport) being located in Ibrahimpasa at 8 km from Goreme and closed to Uçhisar, Mustafapasa and on the road even for Soganli, the underground cities, Ilhara Valley...
This boutique hotel is managed by two brothers who are really the kindest persons we have known in Turkey, they really have been helpful and super efficient in every service. The rooms are located in original and restaured caves, they are clean and preciously furnished; there are two terrace levels with a wonderful view on the chimeney of the little village of Ibrahimpasa...and it is the unique hotel of the village (just opened for the season after long and hard renovation works), so people of this little village are very kind...They will even sincerely help you in parking on the "main" square where by night all men of the village go taking their hot çai (tea) !
Wireless Internet in free and included; you will enjoy an abundant ad delicious breakfast prepared at the moment by Mehmet (thanks again Mehmet!) and you even could ask for dinner on the terrace, because he is a fantastic Turkish cooker too. We had Ramazan dinner with them and you can trust me that it has been the best "restaurant" we had been in Cappadocia (much better than top resaturants signed on the Lonely...).
Lastly, it has been also an economic solution, so perfect for every kind of holiday or journey.
I definitely and heartily recommend this boutique hotel.
