“Unique, wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2011

I stayed at Elkep Evi for two nights while touring Cappadocia, and highly recommend it. The hotel sits high on a hillside, so the views are amazing. My cave room was charming and very clean, with beautiful Turkish village rugs on the floor, and an arched stone ceiling overhead. Each room is set apart from the others, providing great privacy. I had a private terrace of my own outside my door, with great views of hot air balloons rising over the valley each morning.

The buffet breakfast was excellent, with extensive variety and eggs cooked to order. One additional note: some rooms are accessible by stairs only -- don't expect an elevator!

It is a must to stay in a cave hotel when you are in Cappadocia. Great rooms with a beautiful courtyard and individual patios. The breakfast in good but their is a set menu at dinner. Quite far from town if you are walking, but I if you have a guide then no worries. Very big rooms with great bathrooms.

loved this hotel, and it was a genuine cave hotel, as opposed to a reconstructed one. Very beautiful, rooms, fantastic outside patio, views stunning. Service great.We enjoyed the evenings and breakfasts up on the top level of the restaurant/bar. Highly recommend.

I revietwed many hotels in Cappadocia prior to booking at this hotel.
Most of the reviews were excellent and the hotel lived up to its reviews.

I was in Turkey for business but took a few extra days to see the country.

The room is in "a cave" i.e. cut out of the mountain, with a great front porch area to sit and view the countryside.

The breakfast room was perched overlooking the countryside as well. I arrived and was told that they did not have my reservation and they solved the problem very quickly.

I highly recommend this hotel as an adventure in uniqueness and excellence.

Room Tip: ask for the top level rooms they good view

We were very sure we wanted to stay in one the cave hotels while visiting Cappadocia. So we decided on none other that Elkep Evi cave hotel. This hotel was widely spread across couple of caves. No two rooms were alike in look and character. The rooms for families were had beds made in little cave niches with their own reading lights. The children in our group were thrilled seeing this. Each room had their outdoor seating which was perfect to enjoy a chat over a cup of tea while enjoying the views of Caves of Cappadocia surrounding us. The delicious local dishes were freshly prepared each day. The staff were very accomodating with our food preferences (majority vegetarians)
