“interesting”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

This hotel is very nice, rooms interesting and comfortable. There is ,however, a big downside. Firstly the tiles in the bathroom turn into an icerink when wet.......very dangerous and the water was never more than luke warm.

The hotel is quite a way out of the town and therefore they have a captive audience for dinner. It was a set menu $30 a head which is very expensive for Turkey and the food was dreadful also the waiters snatch your plate away before you have time to finish. I am not a fussy eater but I am not paying $30 for a stringy, fatty beef casserole, my friend managed to eat hers but her plate was snatched away. It really was bad .

It was a very relaxing and most beautiful hotel stay we ever had anywhere.The night manager Nihat was so thoughtful.He brought us packed breakfast to go as we had to leave 3:45 A.M. to catch our early morning flight from Kayseri.Entire staff treated us like we were their family.Took care of all our needs.Can't ask for anything more.Don,t hesitate and go for it.

Room Tip: get a room which at least has one window

Delicious breakfast. Staff is so helpful and personable. We arrived without specific itineraries and the staff was really able to go the extra mile to give us great recommendations that might our specific interests. We arrived early due to our flights from Istanbul and they were gracious enough to try to provide us with an early check in and upgraded us. Very happy with our stay. There was no issue in staying in this area of Cappadocia. We could easily get a car or take the bus to where we needed to go. Walking to the city center was no issue.

The fact that you get to stay is a cave is, obviously, amazing, but that the cave is warm, quiet and very comfortable makes it all the better. The breakfast spread (included in our rate) was delicious with lots of choice. The honour system, self-serve kitchen was very handy for a drink in the evening or a bottle of water to take during the day.

The staff are a highlight. They are friendly and always looking to make your stay even better.

The pillows, however, are in desperate need of an upgrade and the living area of our suite could have done with a little more light - we had to sit on separate couches if we both wanted light for reading. The wifi also only worked if you stood by the door of our room, which I suspect was just a factor of being well inside a mountain! We came for relaxation after days travelling and exploring Cappadocia, so it suited us prefectly.

Highly recommended.

When in Cappadocia, you must stay in a cave hotel. The experience is not to be missed and enriches your stay in this incredible geological and historical area. The hotel was great--beautifully appointed with authentic furnishings. We were upgraded to a suite--very nice. Staff is superb and there is a very nice, well appointed restaurant on the cave grounds. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Book it if you are going to Cappadocia.

Room Tip: Get a suite if you can.

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
