“charming place with authentic rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

we stayed with our 6 yrs old boy. We all loved the great authentic large cave room with a nice bathtub. After a long Capadocia tour, it was nice to relax in the lobby which was like a nice living room. Breakfast was good and service, hospitality were great. i would recomment this place to couples, or couples with kids.

Years have been passed since your last visit... Sacred House expanded and deserves a new visit.

We have 21 rooms now with a stunning restaurant & bar, underground SPA that might take away you breath.

Looking forward to serve you again in near future.

Hotel was excellent all around - service was superior and rooms were amazing especially all of the furniture and spiced wine. The view from the roof top deck over a bottle of wine was a highlight of our trip. The staff and management were very helpful in booking tours and taking care of all our needs. Be sure to have dinner at the hotel one night the food was among the best we had in Turkey. Sacred House stands out as one of the most unique hotels we have visited in many years of travel.

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic but we stayed in Old Chapel - the furniture and ambiance were stellar. Among...

One of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. Unbelievably beautiful restored Greek mansion with unique rooms. The employees are so attentive and will bring anything you ask for. The breakfasts were delicious and varied, and we also received tea and cake after returning from our tours each day. Ece was a wonderful host and our stay with them couldn't have been any more perfect.

The location was also great. The hotel was a short walk into a town with shops and some very good restaurants (Ece steered us towards excellent places to eat as well).

Room Tip: We stayed in the Harem room, which was very light and airy with it's own private balcony, but al...

This a beautifully restored Greek mansion in a perfect location for visiting Cappadocia but those aren't its best features. My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights and the service was spectacular. The owner and staff are attentive, friendly and extremely helpful. I travel quite a bit and the Sacred House stands out as a special place.

My wife and I chose Sacred House from the many properties in Cappadocia after viewing the website, as we wanted to have a special experience in terms of our accommodations there.
We were not disappointed - some places don't live up to their website images, but Sacred House certainly did. Our arrival was greeted by delicious chocolate cake and lemonade, and the resident golden retriever, and the level of service was exceptional throughout our stay.
The breakfasts are beautifully presented and we had dinner at the hotel one evening, which was essentially a private dinner in their intimate dining room, with the food being some of the best we had during our entire trip in Turkey. What is truly most impressive is the planning and execution of the renovations to the hotel after it was purchased by the current owners - we stayed in the Old Chapel Room and the detailed tile and lighting work in the bathroom is a work of art. Also the music that wafted through the courtyard added to the ambience of the place.
The owner was most gracious and helpful, as were the staff. I couldn't recommend the hotel more highly.

Room Tip: We loved the history and feeling of the Old Chapel Room.

Sacred house is a beautiful hotel. Great location as it is not in a super touristy area but very close to most of the attractions.  The owner of the hotel was lovely and very helpful.  She was able to veer us away from the tour traps and recommended some great local eats. A part of the charm of the hotel is that each room is designed differently, with classic ottoman decor.  The only downside was that there was no air-conditioning! This is understandable for the cave suites which naturally stay cold.  But for the other suites, the heat is quite unbearable. We did go during the hottest time of the year.  For the price of the rooms it was quite unfortunate, as it did spoil our sleep!  Aside from that I can't say I wouldn't return during a time of year when the weather is not so hot!  

Room Tip: Choose a cave room during the hot season!

If there were a Service Olympics, Ece and her staff would win gold. We cannot overemphasize how awesome they were. Having arrived from a fun but harrying visit in Istanbul, staying at Sacred House was like a cool drink of water. Our room was the definition of luxe, down to the last detail. The welcome lemonade and cake was so scrumptious, the in-room cherry liqueur was divine, and afternoon tea was always so very pleasant. If we return to Kapadokya again, there is nowhere else we'd rather stay.
