Night in a Cave in Cappadocia, Turkey

The region of Cappadocia in Turkey is a place where you can let your spirit of adventure free. It’s name was derived from Katpatuka, land of the beautiful horses, in Hittite language. The main town, Goreme, is located in the heart of Cappadocia and is the perfect location for access to the main attractions and accommodation.

People from all over the world go to this area to find a unique kind of travel experience. A few of its main attractions include the Goreme Open Air Museum, underground city, a ride in a hot air balloon in the hot air balloon capital of the world and of course, a nice stay in a cave hotel.

During my stay in Cappadocia I stayed with Ottoman Cave Suites (about 1 km from the Open Air Museum) and my experience was I will never forget. One of the best things about staying here is the fact that they are a family owned hotel.

They went above and beyond to make sure that my stay was perfect and went above and beyond and even helped me plan the activities I wanted to do in Cappadocia.

With the help of the owner, he booked me a full day tour to see different parts of Cappadocia and ending in the underground city (a MUST see).

I was greeted at the hotel with tea and a tour of the whole facility. Each of the rooms are all individually decorated to capture the Ottoman-style ambience throughout the hotel. I loved the fact that this was not a chain hotel and for that reason you can see the charm in each and everyone of the rooms.

You can choose from either a splendid classic double en-suite room or our stylish cave rooms with super sized bathrooms. Just ask them or get on their website and you can see that they have many different options that are suitable for people of all different kinds of budgets.

The hotel has a total of 13 rooms, 8 caves and 4 standard stone rooms. There are 5 cave suites, some of which have a beautiful view of Uçhisar castle and 1 standard stone suite on the top floor with magnificent views on both sides.

One of my favorite parts about staying here was the amazing traditional Turkish breakfast that they offered from 7:30 to 10 am (price included).

They have everything from:

  • Local bread
  • Variety of local cheese
  • Eggs (boiled, scrambled or omelet)
  • Yogurt
  • Juice, milk, coffee, tea
  • Different home made jams and honey
  • Organic fruit and veggies (all from the area)

If you are looking for a local experience, you can check out some of the local restaurants within walking distance, or just a 3 minute walk is the local Hammam (Turkish public bath), and after a long day of exploring the city, that was one of the highlights of my stay.

If you are looking for a place that is classy, clean, centrally located and with a staff that goes above and beyond to give you a unique experience, then look no further than Ottoman Cave Suites. This will be my place of accommodation for my future travels to Cappadocia and my recommendation for anyone traveling to that area.
