We were kindly given a better room when we arrived, since it was low season and the occupation was low. The suite (n. 207) was on a cave, had a large and comfortable bed, a private living room and a large bathroom, with bath tub and shower. We were very satisfied with the room! The only thing That could be improved is the lightening (there were areas with no light and others had ugly lamps, which stranded out as the "odd one out" in this lovely setting) and the quality of the finishings (because there was always dust on the floor and furniture, which came out of the ceiling and walls of the cave).
The lady who hosted us at the reception desk was very nice and polite: besides giving us the recommendations we asked, she was always willing to help in whatever we needed. You could really see she was committed to provide you with the best stay at Cappadocia.
The restaurant / breakfast area has a scenic view over Urgup. We could enjoy the snow falling from the large windows. Breakfast could have more variety, but had all the essentials and fresh orange juice, which was a plus.
There is a cosy bar and lounge by the reception, where you can have a nice cup of tea or wine!
Tip for having dinner: make sure you go to Ziggy (a 5-minute walk from the hotel, just make a right and walk straight ahead on a more or less steep street). We had a lovely dinner there, in fact it was the place I liked the most in our trip to Turkey. There is also a nice arts and crafts store below the restaurant.
