I stayed here for three non-consecutive nights, coming back visiting another region after a positive experience on the first night. The hotel is small, with about a half-dozen suites. Each suite/room is separately carved out of the cliff face, and is perfectly isolated from the others.
The rooms are comfortably appointed, but are not luxurious. My suite had a bedroom area and a sitting/lounge area as well as a small patio. The bathroom was quite large and was separated from the bedroom area by virtue of a giant wall of rock.
The hotel is located about ten minute's walk from the town center. There are many restaurants and shops within easy walking distance.
The proprietor was very solicitous and spoke good English. Some of the desk staff were also very helpful but between their broken English and my broken Turkish it took a bit longer to organize some tours or get dining recommendations. Nevertheless, everything was done right.
Breakfast was included in my rate, and was excellent. They had a great spread of meats and cheeses, as well as fruits and vegetables (including many olives), and breads and jams. They also offered eggs made to order and hot drinks including Turkish coffee brewed on demand.
