Esbelli Evi Cave Hotel
Ranked #9 of 68 Hotels in Urgup
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We recently spent four nights at Esbelli Evi and we didn't want to leave. It was one of the highlights of our month in Turkey and rates along with Explora Atacama in Chile. Both hotels are unpretentious but deliver in spades. We stayed in three different suites over the four nights, each with its own character and each equally well appointed. We felt totally indulged by Yasemin who ensured our comfort by preempting our needs. Suha.gave his time freely to help us plan our daily trips each morning, ensuring we maximised our time in Cappadocia. We would go back tomorrow.

Room Tip: We would encourage you to take any suite. They are all magnificent.

We have stayed 4 days in Cappadocia at Esbelli Evi Cave Hotel. This cave hotel is well localized, near restaurants and Ürgüp downtown. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. If you visit Cappadocia do not miss a Balloon trip.

From the pre-arrival helpfulness via email to the welcome and care taken while we were there, Esbelli Evi is one of my favourite boutique hotels. Ever. Our room was huge - We'd asked for 'twin' share and the room had plenty of space for a queen bed and a full single (not a dodgy fold out that is often provided for the 2nd person!).
Yasemin was a star. And didn't even blink when we climbed out of the car at 7.30am after our balloon ride and handed over the champagne glasses we'd liberated from the post ride toast having decided to finish the bottle on the way back to the hotel.
A proper cave hotel experience with all the luxuries of the modern world - Each room is provided with its own laptop, there's free wifi on the breakfast terrace and the most well stocked honour bar you could wish for. Which is perfect when enjoying the sunny terraces with lots of nooks for a private G&T or three.
If you are visiting Cappadocia, THIS is the place to stay.

We enjoyed our stay here, but it wasn't our favorite hotel in the area (we liked the Kale Konak in Uchisar better - felt more like staying in a cave, and we liked the location better). The owner and manager were very accommodating, and this is a luxurious place: our suite had 2 bathrooms (which we didn't really need - even with 3 kids!), a computer, a flat screen tv, and lots of nice decorations. It was definitely one of the most spacious places we stayed on our trip. Breakfasts were very nice, and the service was excellent. It was also nice to get a tour of the place by the owner. But it was definitely more on the expensive side...

We worked hard to book this lovely hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. This small hotel has about a dozen lovely rooms (suites, really), carved out of the hillside with scenic views and all a short walk from restaurants, etc. Breakfast is extensive and delicious, on a terrace overlooking the surrounding area. All the materials used in the rooms are tasteful and comfortable - wood, stone, nice linens, tile showers, etc. The hosts do not penny pinch; they stock your room with drinks and maintain an open bar in the public area on an honor system. Make sure to ask the hosts for recommendations re site seeing routes; they will give you very helpful maps and suggestions. Tied for our favorite hotel ever so far!

Room Tip: We stayed in two different rooms due to scheduling and they were both divine.
