TLDR: Book now you won't regret it. Small cozy place, few rooms great location to explore Cappadocia and staff out of this world!
With so many hotels around and quite a few within our budget (specially during winter time), Cappadocia was the hardest place to pick an hotel during our trip. After quite a bit of wondering around the web I (hesitantly) choose Anatelein Boutique Cave Hotel. A few days after my trip I am still very happy I did, by far the best hotel (despite not being the most expensive) during our 15-day tour around Turkey.
The hotel is a small and cozy place, there are maybe six or eight rooms in hotel but I think the might be expanding a bit soon. The view around the hotel is great with Uchisar's castle literally next to your door. The rooms are huge and are in fact two rooms (living room + bedroom) and bath. Our room was nicely, tastefully furnished and decorated. As the hotel name says it, they are cave-rooms, which gives them a lot of charm and the full-on Cappadocia feeling (although it also gives a little bit of extra dust which seems unavoidable in cave-hotels).
Last but not least is the fantastic staff they have, Mustafa and his wife took care of us wonderfully and despite speaking little to no english they treated us superbly. Valerie (the hotel manager) was also of huge help when it came to planning and arranging touristic visits.

Our three days in Cappodocia at Taskonaklar were the highlight of our trip to Turkey! While Istanbul was exciting and fun, this area of Turkey is breathtaking. The hotel is rustic yet modern at the same time, pristinely clean, and staffed by some of the most welcoming and competent people we have ever dealt with. Then there is the unimaginable vista from your room and the terraces! Waking to the sight of hot air balloons rising in the dawn sky over indescribable terrain should be on everyone's must see list. Then the next day YOU get to ride into the sunrise in one of those balloons! We would recommend this hotel and this area unconditionally.

Exceeded expectations. Safe to say its the best cave hotel to stay in Cappadocia ! Comfortable rooms, hospitality by the staff, overall service, food, spa and a helpful concierge team - all of that made it an extremely memorable stay.

"Duven hotel looks nice, but the staf wasn't nice."
The manager confest that he wouldn't give any room to Turkish people. He is a racist. He gave us the worst room which like it hasn't been fresh air for ages so it smels humidity just because we reseverved from Expedia.
