I recently stayed at Yunak Evleri and really enjoyed it. The hotel is a little tricky to get to - there are 3 entries from the main road but the last 100 meters or so are narrow.
I stayed in one of the larger suites (on the right side if you are looking at the hote) and the room was very nice and well appointed. As some reviews have noted, the room can be dark during the day - but that makes sense, since you're in a cave! Also as noted, my room was warm at night - I thought staying in a cave would be cool but it stayed warm. Very good bathroom with a soaker/jet tub, nice sitting area (complete with iPod player), very comfortable bed.
The on-property restaurant is good and has a pretty view. Several good restaurants are within walking distance.
Hotel staff was very helpful with local recommendations and helped with an Istanbul hotel reservation.
Overall, a very good hotel in a location that makes it easy to get to the Capadoccia sites.

Room Tip: If you want a room that is a little brighter (but perhaps smaller) ask for one. These rooms will al...

Hotel quite hard to find we had to stop in the town & ask for directions & the "road" up to the Hotel is very narrow and you wodner where you are going as you weave around. Its easier if you take the 2nd or third entrance not the first one you come too!

The room was lovely but found the lack of air conditioning made it hot to sleep as we coudlnt really leave our windows open as any sound outside seem to resonate around the Hotel.

Staff really helpful - food very nice & breakfast on thre terrace a great way to start the day.

We hired a car from Kayseri airport - which we found helpful as it made it easier to see everything in the area in our own time & pace.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to offer something a little different and were unique....no such thing as a bad r...

We stayed here in Sep 2010 for 2 nights and it was an absolute pleasure. We were given a cave room which was very cozy. The food was good at this hotel. Cappadokia has a very unique and beautiful landscape. We did the baloon ride in one of the morning and it was a great experience. I would say it is a must if you are going to Cappadokia. The place already has tons of good reviews; and I don't have anything much to add. I highly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I were amazed at this property. The service and accomadations were terrific! Breakfast was great. Sleeping in a cave was awesome and unique. Easy walk into town but uphill walk back (taxi back if needed). They helped arrange tours and balloon ride and transfer to htel from airport included.

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.

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
