“Peace and Quiet and Fabulous Hosts”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

This was the hotel that I was whisked to after flying into Nevsehir in Cappadoccia. Upon reaching the hotel which is on the outskirts of Urgup, I entered the hotel and was greeted by pretty flowers, a little cat and the friendly owners of the hotel who took my luggage and took me to my room, (#6). I was thrilled to see that it was spacious but cozy and completely constructed of stone, with a beautiful arch along the ceiling. The bed was firm and comfortable and the bathroom had a lovely shower unit with every possible option for a relaxing shower from extra back water jets to a beautiful rain shower head. The room opened up onto a large communal balcony area with a view of the countryside where guests could sit for meals or relax and while away the evening with conversation and a glass of wine.
Breakfast was served under the shade of large white umbrellas and it was typical of my Turkish breakfast experience, slice cucumber and tomato, olives, fresh bread and jam, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and other yummy items.
I stayed here for three nights and toured the regional sights. In the evenings I was able to walk into the central area of Urgup ( a twenty minute stroll) and go out for dinner or do a little shopping.
My hosts were a lovely couple, always willing to help me out, and when I had to do a real estate transaction back home, call my bank in Canada and send a fax, they bent over backwards to assist me. This was the perfect hotel for couples and I would highly recommend it as a place to begin your visit to the intriguing region that is Cappadoccia.

Room Tip: I am sure that all the rooms are equally excellent

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.
