I fell in love with Sacred House from the website and decided to spend two of our seven nights spent in Cappadocia there, although for us it is quite expensive. We spent our other 5 nights in Goreme first and were disappointed with Urgup when we arrived there. We just loved Goreme too much. Sacred House made up for this disappointment though. The location is excellent, within walking distance of the town, shops and restaurants.
We stayed in Faeries Nest after having difficulty in choosing between this room and Anka's Lair. In the end after seeing both rooms, we made the right choice! Faeries Nest is the top room of Sacred House with a balcony and a lovely view of Urgup. Anka's Lair, although beautiful, is a cave room and very dark with no view. The decor in our room was absolutely beautiful and it is so romantic and cosy at night with dimmed lighting and lovely chandeliers. We started the fire as it was very cold and they brought more wood upon request. The only negative comment I can make is that practical aspects were overlooked like a place to put your suitcases and other stuff, a comfortable seating area ( the chairs were their for decorative purposes only according to me!) etc. The emphasis here is mainly on interior decorating. But still, I chose this hotel because I love this aspect! Maybe they can just add small practical things that travelers do need?
The breakfast was of a high standard as well as the one dinner we had there. Both meals were served on the top terrace with a lovely view over Urgup town. We had drinks on the terrace late afternoons to just enjoy the view.
Other reviewers have said it all. I would recommend this hotel and choose it again. As I also wanted to stay in a cave hotel/B&B, that is what we have done in Goreme, so if you only have limited time in Cappadocia, that might be your first choice!
