We stayed in this hotel for one night in a triple share room.
The room was beautiful, full of antique looking furniture and furnishings, fitted out in excellent taste.
Breakfast is a little limited but lovely nevertheless.
It's a little bit out of the way but worth it for the experience of staying in a genuine Cave Hotel.

Nothing prepares you for a hotel like this. Every room is different because these were once homes and have now been converted into a very posh and unique boutique hotel. This was a once in a lifetime experience for many in my tour group - I fully expect to be back here with future tours - so I wanted them to not only experience a cave hotel but a cave hotel in a city steeped in history. It surely was. It is run with such care and genuine spirit of 'welcome' that it was hard to go out on our day trips. We all wanted to 'be in the moment' here. Up early in the morning and you can see before you balloons floating in the air. It is so quiet you can hear them and if you are lucky enough to be able to take a balloon ride like I was, then you have a memory you will never forget.

It is a lovely area to walk around in with many stone buildings to admire and photograph. The meals were delicious and served with smiling faces. A truly unique place to stay and enjoy. All my photos are too large so if you want to see them please visit www.icangarden.com

When you hear that your hotel is in a cave, you don't know quite what to expect. This wonderful hotel exceeded expectations! We were in a suite, it was so comfortable with the seating area and the bedroom. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the bathroom was huge with 2 showers, one of which was a spa shower. The staff was incredible, very attentive and helpful. We needed some help in the restaurant one night and the manager came right over to assist us. The food for both breakfast and dinner was absolutely delicious. The hotel is in a great location, it was an easy walk into town. I highly recommend this hotel while you are in Cappadocia. The staff's hospitality makes you feelvery much at home and you cannot beat the view.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite!

this is a beautiful hotel, and the assistance of the staff really made the trip very enjoyable. they set up a tour for us (you really need to do a tour or rent a car in this area to go to the many villages) as well as a balloon ride - each of these done for us the afternoon before we actually did them. the breakfast was really good, and the rooms, especially the bathroom, were wonderful. the service of the staff really set this hotel above and beyond.

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 .

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.

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
