There is everything right about this hotel, from the rooms to the excellent dining room staff, friendly front of house staff, great food and a most kind and caring manager. We loved our stay. With the way it is built into the cliff, it is almost surreal. The rooms are amazing - large, beautifully decorated, comfortable and quiet. The dining room has wonderful atmosphere. My husband was sick when we arrived - they had the room ready and a doctor waiting. After everything was organized and sick hubby sleeping, I went to reception to check in properly. The owner/manager asked if I had eaten lunch and when I replied in the negative, she told me that though the restaurant was closed until evening she would have something sent to my room.I will never forget that kindness and we're going back.

Unfortunately, we only stayed one night with our tour group. The hotel was lovely with a great restaurant. Our room was spacious with a nice sized bathroom and was built right into the stone walls. We wished we could have stayed longer.

We had a 10 day trip in Turkey and 3 nights were in Cappadocia.
This hotel and the location was great value for the money. The staff were just admirable.
The panorama from the hotel's many is breathtaking.
The hotel was very very clean with jacuzzies in the bathrooms.
We will be back to this piece of wonder.

We travelled to Cappadocia knowing that we would be staying in the Alfina Cave Hotel as suggested by a friend of ours that had stayed the year before. I was very surprised that a cave hotel could be so upscale, especially the jacuzzi after having trekked around all day. The service in every part of the hotel was above our exspectations. We ate in the hotel the first night and it was great. I would definately go back again and will suggest it to all family and friends

I stayed at Alfina Hotel in early June 09 for a night, a charming hotel with friendly service. They don't have a business centre but when I enquired about internet access, the ever helpful reception offered me the use of their only computer at the reception counter. The hotel is just a few minutes away from town but unfortunately we did not have time to explore as we had 2 full-day tours in Cappadocia. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel's restaurant, and although not the best, they were both very adequate. Alfina is not a luxurious 5-star accomodation but a very charming tourist class hotel with good service, it serves as a great base to explore the amazing Cappadocia.

Hotel Alfina is a lovely hotel on the outskirts of Urgup. I would recommned that if you are older or handicapped in any way to request a room on the lower floors as there is no lift and the stairs are a challenge to the fifth floor. However do not let that put you off as the hotel is carved directly from the earth and is quite charming and the room I had had an Eastern ambience at not too expensive a price tag.Staff willing, laid back but helpfuland charming; and beds comfortable. I'd rate 3.5 - 4 star.

Stayed here as part of a small group tour. The hotel is clean and modern and the rooms are quite nice. All rooms require climbing stairs as there are no elevators. Billed as a cave hotel, but in fact the hotel appears to be built on the side of a cliff and in our room only half of the bathroom was really a "cave". There is no pool, which some may feel is unfortunate in this standard of hotel. Breakfast is adequate but only starts at 7.30am which means if you have an early trip or are leaving for the airport (an hour away) you may miss it. Didn't try the dinner - always best to go into town (a 5 minute walk) to get a real Turkish food.

If you like your Turkey sanitized this may be a good option, but for a more authentic experience we would have liked to try one of the cave hotels in Goreme.

Thank you for your critics. It will help us alot.
As for the "cave" hotel criticism, the hotel is carved into the hillside as and all in the rock. Some rooms reach to 20 meters depth in to the hill (65 feet) and the hotel is considered the biggest cave hotel of the region that everypart of it is dwelled in the volcanic tuffa. Most of the rooms are dwelled more than 300 years ago as old settlement and converted into the hotel in late 80's. The renovation is finished in 2006.
Again we thank you for your critics and we will do our best to serve better.
