“Wonderful spot”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We loved our time at the Assiana House. Suna and Mevlut were welcoming and helpful and provided us with good guidance as we organized our precious days in Cappadocia. The rooms were large (which we appreciated having stayed in several very small rooms in our Turkey travels up to this point), spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfasts on the beautiful terrace were delicious and large--Suna's homemade jams topping off all kinds of other delicious treats. The location up the hill from the center of town moved us a short walk out of the main touristy area, which we appreciated. We'd love to repeat our Turkey adventure some day. If we do, we'll definitely stay at the Assiana House again.

We stayed five nights at the Assiana Cave House, a great selection by our travel agent. Owners Mevlut and Suna were welcoming and ever helpful, ensuring we knew exactly what time we were supposed to surface to be picked up for whichever tour we were going on that day. We were open-mouthed when first shown to room number 1 set into the rock, beautifully cool and quite spacious with a shower plus bath and a low-cushioned seating area. On two nights Suna prepared an evening meal for us, modest but delightful home cooking, loved the yoghurt soup! (On the other nights we sampled Ziggy's (on the left as you go down the hill), the Han Ciragan (on the right further down) and Somine (in Urgup centre), all of which were excellent and very reasonably priced.) As noted by other reviewers, with it being such a small hotel we got easily into conversation with our fellow guests in a way that might not have happened in a larger place. Oh, and the Turasan winery is a few minutes walk from the hotel, we dropped in out of curiosity and came away with a couple of bottles of their lovely Emir 2011.

This family-owned cave hotel was a highlight of our Turkish trip. We immediately felt like family when we arrived. The room was very well-apppointed with lots of room, and the bathroom offered all of the modern amenities. We marvelled at how staying in a cave could have such an magical and elegant feel to it. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Home-baked meat pies and sweets were an excellent complement to the fine coffee. The terrace had a nice view of the area. A relaxing and satisfying way to start the day. The family who owned the hotel were very welcoming and warm. The Dimrit restaurant which is within easy walking distance offers excellent Turkish food. A truly wonderful and unforgettable experience!

Room Tip: Room #1 is a must see with a very large and comfortable bed and sitting area for 10 people. Amazing!

Very nice hotel and very nice people to stay for two nights in the Cappadocia region. The rooms were beautiful and exotic, and a true cave experience that was unforgettable. Close to town and close to two good restaurants (Dimrit and Ziggy's). Would highly recommend staying in this hotel and spending two nights in the region to see as much as possible. Our two days were fantastic, but we still couldn't take it all in. Would not hesitate to stay at Assiana House again.

We stayed at Assiana House on our honeymoon in Turkey. The staff was so helpful and kind, we had a beautiful suite, and the food was simple and good. They even left a bottle of local wine and glasses on the table after finding out we were honeymooners! Our only regret was that we only stayed two days there.

This is a nice little spot on the hill in Urgup. My room was large as was my bathroom. Everything was clean and well-maintained. There were no English channels that I could find on the television. The wifi signal is strong in the communal areas, but not always in the rooms given the stone and rock. Always had hot water, which apparently not all hotels in the region do. Was also happy to have a bathtub. About a 10 minute walk from the town's centre.
The breakfast spreads are delicious and typically Turkish, and there is something a little different each morning. Having dinner at the hotel is also very affordable. It's also delicious and you feel like you are guests in someone's home rather than a hotel. Being as there are not very many rooms, you also have the opportunity to easily speak to other travellers.
The proprietors are warm and helpful. The tour companies they have connections with are good. The tours I went on arranged by them were reasonably priced, small in tourist number (~15 people) and didn't spend much time at the obligatory sales stop (carpets, pottery, etc).
Everyone who works at Assiana House is very warm and welcoming and makes you feel taken care of.
