A Great Experience!Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: Everything! - the look, feel, charm, staff, breakfast, views. It was all perfect.
Cons: I really can't think of a thing.
Location: The hotel is right in the small city center of Urgup, full of shops and restaurants and nearby the main sightseeing areas of Goreme and Zelve.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay at Hotel Cave Konak and wished we were able to stay longer. Our cave room was beautiful, spacious and quite unique. The entire hotel has a beautiful old-world look and feel to it with distinctive architectural accents everywhere. If you're thinking of opting for the Breakfast package - do it! After eating your Turkish breakfast with the homemade jams and Pekmek on the rooftop terrace, you won't want to eat breakfast anywhere else. The breakfast is delicious and views from the terrace are amazing. The terrace is also a great place to end the evening with a bottle of wine enjoying the views and the cool air. Even more amazing than the hotel itslef, is the staff. Colleen and Adnan are exemplary hosts and their knowledge of the surrounding area is priceless. Every day after breakfast Colleen sat down with us to help plan our day of sightseeing. While I had done a lot of research on where to go and what to see, her "inside" knowledge and tips on places to go (some I hadn't even heard of) really made a difference. Colleen and Adnan are both very proud of the work they have put into the hotel, and rightly so. Adnan gave us a tour of some of the other rooms as well as parts of the hotel and caves still undergoing renovation. It was quite fascinating, and really gave us an appreciation of all the hard work that was put into transforming these old buildings and caves into something quite special. This was our favorite stay in all of Turkey.

Small rooms but owner very pleasant and helpfulPosted Jun 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed one night at this establishment and I found the room nice but small. There is very little room to store luggage. The room had a great view but since it was directly above the road you hear lots of noise from oustside. It is located less than half a mile from the bus station in Urgup so a taxi is not needed if you travel light. The owner and staff were extremely helpful. She helped rearrange my bus ticket so I could get to me next destination in a timely manner. Overall I had a pleasant stay.

Best Personal ServicePosted May 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is very nice and close to many sites. We were most impressed by the personal service. Colleen made sure we had everything we needed, helped us book our tour, and made excellent recommendations. We would definitely come back!!

Seemed oddPosted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Sometimes there are hotels where the whole is greater then the parts. This hotel was the opposite; the parts were greater then the sum. The worst part was the interaction between the hotel owner and her "partner". He constantly said the most unflattering things and she was always down playing his inanity. Just weird. The room I was in was nicely decorated, but the steep stairs leading to the bathroom were inconvenient. The hotel seemed surrounded by a lot of rubbish and dilapidation, but it is right in the center of town. There are definitely nicer places to stay.

Unique experiencePosted Apr 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
We loved the design and attention to detail of our underground accommodation. the room was spacious with a separate sitting room and a huge bathroom which even had a double shower. The marble tiling was beautiful as was the subtle lighting. The hotel decoration was tastefully capadoccian in style. The elevated breakfast and dining area provides a wonderful view of the old and new town. We appreciated the advice given each day in relation to sight seeing activities and the culture.

One-of-a-kind servicePosted Sep 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
I have stayed at a number of cave hotels. This hotel sets itself apart from the others with the very personable service that the hotel owners provide. The rooms are clean and filled with interesting historic decorative items. The location is great, within 1 min walk of downtown Urgup. The only disadvantage I noticed was there was no dedicated parking. The city streets are safe to park, but difficult to find one near the hotel. Despite this inconvenience, I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

Beautiful, cozy friendly small cave hotel.Posted Apr 1, 2013
We loved our experience at Konak Cave Hotel! The owner, Colleen, was incredibly helpful by email prior to our visit in terms of helping us get the most out of our visit to Cappadocia and our other destinations in Turkey. She recommended a wonderful tour guide and helped arrange a hot air balloon ride as well. The hotel was cozy and clean and included a full breakfast. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great hotel and servicePosted Mar 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was a little skeptical of going to a small hotel but I was very pleasantly surprisde. Excellent hotel, very clean rooms, great service and the Wifi worked great even though we stayed in a room in the cave. I highly recommend this hotel and would certainly return here aagin.
