“Crazy cave hotel with amazing sunsets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

Great hotel with top notch service and a very solid breakfast. They did a very good job setting up a private tour guide for us to travel through the valley and see the hidden caves, churches etc. I would skip dinner at the hotel and go right around the corner to Ziggy's cafe if you are in Urgup.

Just finished a 3 night stay, this place was fabulous, from the rooms, the views, the staff, everything exceeded our expectations. The small town of Urgup in the Cappadocia region of Turkey is really nice. We will definitely be back.

We stayed at yunak for 2 nights & were not disappointed. Check in at 1am was smooth from helpful staff. Upgraded to suite by Abdullah (and he was extremely helpful prior to arriving on emails).
Room + view was amazing everyday. Also how peaceful it was looking across the landscape from balcony or rooftop breakfast area. Hot balloon ride & tour organised by hotel was fantastic (a bit pricey but worth every lira). Overall would highly recommend this hotel for an amazing experience with fantastic service.

The hotel is beautiful and the cave rooms are fun as well as well appointed. We had a beautiful terrace outside our room. There are nice restaurants within walking distance. We didn't eat at the hotel except for breakfast. The open terrace dining for breakfast is exceptional and you can watch the hot air baloons and sunrise.

Wifi is only in lobby, but it couldn't go through the rock walls.

There is no airconditioning, but we were comfortable in our room.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room with large windows if it is summer.

Stayed there in July for two nights and enjoyed it very much. Sleeping in a cave is a different experience. I was not sure if I would appreciate it but I definitely can recommend. Very comfortable and nice room with all the amenities. Friendly staff.
I have dinner on the arrival but it was nothing special, but the experience of eating outside with all those mountains surrounding us in the middle of Cappadocia was outstanding!
I also didn't enjoy their breakfast system. They put the food in a room that is not sufficiently cold, even with a/c. It was too hot and the a/c was very weak. This is the reason why I rate 4 instead of 5.
Overall is a very good Hotel and I recommend it.

Beautiful and well decorated, we only missed a swimming pool.
Good breakfast and excellent service. I am very grateful for the help one night that one of my children got ill. They give us a lift to the Hospital and were very helpful

We were totally amazed to find this outstanding hotel, in a small town in the middle of Cappadocia. We where there at the end of July 2012, and the heat in Cappadocia was blistering!, But the cave rooms were cool and did not require any airconditioning!!! Keeping in mind that some of the rooms go back to the 4th century, it's living history.... We were lucky to be given a triple room on the top, the view late in the evening and early in the morning was mystical.
Our room was very spacious, with a modern bathroom there was more than enough space for 3 people...... The staff were very friendly and helpfull, we didn't eat at the hotel, but the breakfast was very good...
We loved it!.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Magical Serenity : Yunak Evleri Cappadocia In Cappadocia's magical landscape of fairy chimneys, in the ancient village of Urgup, is a unique cave hotel carved into a mountain cliff, the Yunak Evleri. This hotel includes 7 cave houses, 40 rooms dating back to the 5th and 6th centuries and a 19th century Greek Mansion. Yunak Evleri is an inspiring hotel - an ideal base for exploring Cappadocia's elaborate underground cities, hidden cavernous churches and enchanting rock terrain. A labyrinth of narrow passageways and curved stone stairways lead to unique rooms tastefully decorated in warm traditional style. These exceptional cave houses are renovated and decorated with care and in their own distinct style with strictly respecting the local character. The decor is elegant and personalized with beautiful hand-crafted furnishings and antiques. All rooms have private patios overlooking the Turkish Mesa. With 40 rooms, Yunak Evleri is small enough to be intimate, yet large enough to offer you privacy. Accommodations range from exotic luxury caves to multi-chamber deluxe suites, including family suites. One can find the signs of past times in each room which all have been decorated differently. The elegant decor is prominent wherever you lay your eyes on.Emperador marble floors, handcrafted lace curtains, antique chests and bedside tables, traditional bed covers, old brass bedsteads, old handcrafted writing desks , old kilim carpets and antique lighting have been chosen with care and with simplicity in mind. At the foot of the cliff stands the hotel's main lobby. Housed in a 19th century Greek mansion, the main building exudes a kind of sophisticated charm. Within the stone building, cozy meeting rooms provide a soothing atmosphere for lounging in the evening. Alongside a room with computer and wireless Internet connection, the music room has a wide variety of CDs you can borrow and the TV room is decked out in plush Turkish cushions with a view of the surrounding cliffs. There is a DVD room on the second floor decorated with local handmade pottery accessories, candles, and a lovely furnace. Evenings are characterized by sunset gatherings on soft upholstered Turkish pillows warmed by an outdoor fireplace. Candlelight dining is offered on the adjacent rooftop terrace. We serve local homemade foods for dinner and an open-buffet breakfast. Yunak Evleri opened its doors to its guests in 2000 and since then has hosted around 200,000 travellers from all regions of the world. Listed in various prominent guidebooks' top hotels lists, Yunak Evleri has created a peaceful balance between modern today and traditional past. With its convenient location in the center of Urgup, Yunak Evleri is a perfect base for daily excursions within Cappadocia. ... more   less
