Aaaaah Cappadocia. So unique, so beautiful, so magical. When you are here, almost everyone says that there are 2 places you need to stay in, stone hotels and cave hotels.
When I got the invitation to this particular hotel, I said yes, because well obviously. The owner of this hotel has a strong afillation with Turkiye Balloons, you can read about my experience flying with them here.
Back to the hotel, I can say that out of 5, I can only give them 4. The location was great, the breakfast was great, the place is great, but the service unfortunately not.
When I first checked in, there was only one person at the reception and he was asleep on the couch. And he will be, for the rest of my stay there.
My room had no toilet rolls or soap, so I actually had to go to the reception and ask for some. However, I strongly believe that this was due to a miscommunication between staffs because the room on the floor below mine was properly done and had everything, but without guests.
I don’t exactly know what to think of this, just though I’ll put it out there.
The rest of my stay though, was peaceful, and heavenly. Even though it was hot outside, the stone walls and ceilings made the room cool.
The decor was kept simple but with a hint of grandeur, and it was very very cosy. I slept extremely well.
One point to add, the room came with a jacuzzi, which was very nice after hours of walking in the heat. When I was checking out, one of the guys working at the hotel was genuinely asking about how I felt staying in the hotel. This is a good sign. The ability to take criticisms and customer’s feedback will result in a successful hotel!
If it wasn’t for the missing toiletries and lack of proper reception, I’d give this place a full 5. Their location is perfect, right at the heart of Gorëme but a 50 meters away from the main road, making the rooms calm and quiet.
I made a video about the hotel so you can take a look at what you are getting yourself into before you book! Click here for the video.
