From the time we arrived we were greeted with very friendly, caring and smiling staff who couldn't do enough for us. The meals were simple but very delicious especially the barbecue the chief put together on Wednesday night. A very enjoyable and welcoming hotel.

“We stayed in the Roller nest Rm 104 a very comfortable large room with a lower level bath room with spa. The room has a four place dinning table and a cane setting with coffee table to relax after a long day. The bed was a joy to sleep in a very comfortable king size bed, we would recommend when you are in Cappadocia Turkey you stay at the Tafoni Houses Cave Hotel.”
