We loved this cave hotel, tucked away in the Cappadocia area. Although listed as a four star, in my opinion it was a five star... The weather was cold but our room (a two room suite, #31) was warm and cozy. We stayed two nights and also ate at the restaurant, which is the only choice unless you want to...

This is probably the nicest place I've ever stayed. Each cave room is individually decorated and furnished with impeccable care. The lighting is just beautiful. The hotel is full of interesting nooks and crannies and set in a very authentic little village. Breakfast was wonderful and dinner was delicious, served in the cosy restaurant. The staff were great and really...

We stayed at the Gamirasu Cave Hotel for 3 nights in October. This was an authentic cave hotel, not just a facade. Hotel staff was delightful and accommodating. We had a delightful time. It is a little out of the way, so you will need a car or guide to transport you to the sights. In our party, there was...

This hotel was an incredible experience. Set in a former monastery in Cappadoccia, it is beautifully decorated and a great blend of history and creature comforts. The suite my husband and I stayed in was well appointed and the service was impeccable! The hostess was extremely helpful and she and her staff genuinely wanted to make our experience there a...

can't say enough about this lovely boutique hotel in the Cappodocia region. The staff was absolutely fabulous and so helpful. The hotel room was pretty cool and spacious for our needs. The drive from the airport was a little long, but well worth the wait. The restaurant had excellent food, everything was fresh and freshly made. My husband enjoyed his...

This is an incredible hotel. I don't give an easy "Excellent: to a hotel, but "Excellent" is not enough for this hotel. You could visit Cappadocia just to see this hotel. After a day of site seeing of cave living of ancients, what makes it even better than to live for a night or two in a cave like theirs,...

There are a million (give or take) cave hotels in various parts of Cappadocia, Turkey. Most of them look claustrophobic and bare. This one is exceptional. The rooms (only 21) are spacious and well decorated. The staff, starting from Ms. Hamide DEMIRAL are fantastic, helpful, gracious and will do anything needed to make you comfortable. Prices rare reasonable, even in...
