“Amazing, atmospheric Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

Gorgeous, atmospheric room with split level. Nice winding metal staircase within the room leads to a nice bed looking over the rest of the room. Very clean, nice bathroom and a lovely stone balcony with seating area. Staff were friendly and very accommodating of our needs and provided breakfast at 3-4 am because we were fasting in Ramadan. Hotel is on top of the hill only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Urgup is quite steep.

I was very happy with the room which was thoughtfully decorated with antique furnishings and interesting curios. Even the phone was ring dial classic and worked. Careful attention had been taken to hide messy wiring boards and the bathroom was modern but up a stone staircase making it very unique. Comfortable bed, though generally the lighting was quite dim in both bathroom and bedroom which is great for ambience but not for seeing.

Breakfast was very good and especially the setting - the garden courtyard with tortoises and cats and various quaint places to enjoy. The owner is very welcoming and hospitable and around to make sure everything is going well.

My only negative would be the tour guide's obvious annoyance when we (I joined another couple for a day tour of the area) all said we did not want to go to any more "demonstrations" which are factories for various manufacturing of products we are not interested in buying or seeing how they produce them. Otherwise he was good and knowledgable but if we don't want to waste time in those places we shouldn't be made to feel uncomfortable about it.

We spent 4 nights (2 adults and 2 children - 11 and 16). We had a suite. Very clean and comfortable. The owner and staff are very dedicated and careful to every needs. Had dinner there every nights. Courtyard is beautiful and intimate. They arranged our visits and made recommendations for other locations in Turkey. Would not go elsewhere in Cappadocia.

We toured Cappadocia without a guide and were delighted to find Selduklu Evi as our jumping off spot. The place is charming, with a beautiful inner courtyard, very clean and comfortable rooms, and beautiful handmade Turkish rugs everywhere, which come from the owner's grandfather's rug business. The owner and staff could not be more helpful, greeting guests with cold drinks, helping with touring suggestions, directions and tickets, and general friendliness. The included breakfast was superb. We decided to have dinner there one night ,and it was one of the best meals we had while in Turkey. We found it on TripAdvisor and got a very reasonable price through Booking.com--it was a great value. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The only disadvantage is that the inner courtyard carries voices, so if you think this will bother y...

As soon as we walked up to the property we were shocked how accurate the photos were to the place. Usually they are run down but not this place. It wad immaculate. Rooms have a very rustic decor that adds to the Cappadocia experience.
Staff and owner take extra care of guests to ensure they are taken care of.

Other pieces of information for other travelers is that there was ample parking if you rent. If you brought a stroller no ramp but then again everything in cappadocia is not stroller friendly (valleys to underground cities)


Would definitely recommend. Fantastic value. Plus the hotel turtle was a hit for the kids. Endless entertainment.

Great hotel, great staff and over all great experience. The morning breakfast with Gozlemes, the cave rooms with kilms, the helpful smiling staff. I would highly recommend this hotel to any visitors to Urgup. Perfect!

Selcuklu Evi Cave Hotel is a wonderful hotel. The staff and the owner obviously put a lot of importance in keeping the guests happy and we felt just at home. Our room, Köprülü Oda, was very charming and with a big terrace. It seems that all rooms have their own entrance, so guests won't disturb each other so easily. At least we didn't hear any noise when at our room.
We stayed in other hotels in Turkey where the interior was new but built with cheap materials. However, at Selcuklu Evi Cave Hotel everything is really beautiful and of the best quality. It was a pleasure to just admire the interior design.
The breakfast buffet was big and in the charming hotel restaurant - or ouside in the garden - and there was even a local lady making gözleme (pancakes with filling) on request. We didn't eat there for dinner but the evening buffet looked really delicious at well.
The hotel is also well-located only 5 minutes walk from the town center of Ürgüp, up the hill, which is perfect in order to 'retreat' from the noises of the center.

I recommend everybody to chose this hotel for their stay in Cappadoccia. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to the region.
