I had my heart set on staying in a cave hotel and was so glad to have found Temenni Evi Hotel in Urgup. It was a centrally located spot for sightseeing in Cappodocia. Set on a hill above Urgup, Temenni Evi was a beautifully appointed hotel. Our room was, in fact, a cave cut into the hillside. It was spacious, clean and unlike any place I've ever stayed.
The owner, with whom I had been in contact while still in the states, was gracious and helpful. I hadn't made any sightseeing plans before arriving and when I told him what we wanted to do (Goreme Outdoor Museum and the Underground Cave Cities) Sadi made one phone call and 5 minutes later we were all set up with Rose Travel (highly recommend) for 2 days of sightseeing. Sadi was great...attentive to all our needs. The breakfast was wonderful. Sadi gave us a tour of the hotel which he had built 6 years prior. He showed us the secret underground passage of Temenni Evi, an ancient cave and passageway leading out to a spectacular view of the surrounding area. The hotel also boasts a rooftop terrace with comfortable pillows and views all around. We were fortunate during out stay to witness a complete lunar eclipse from the terrace. Fabulous.
Urgup is ideal for touring the area as it is very close to all you want to see without being stuck in Goreme, a very touristy spot. Highly recommend
