I've traveled all over the world and this was one of my favorite hotels anywhere. It was really almost a perfect place to stay. The old stone building is a bit like a castle and the thick, stone walls kept my room a fairly constant and pleasant temperature day and night. I never had to use the air conditioner in June. The room and cavernous bathroom were spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bed was superb as was the WiFi throughout the hotel. The very pleasant roof terrace was a wonderful place for breakfast and to relax in the evenings with superb views of Urgup and the surrounding countryside. The breakfasts were also outstanding with homemade bread and jams, eggs made to order, cereal, and traditional Turkish breakfast fare.
The hotel is located right by the main square of Urgup, which is a wonderful town. The location is just about perfect and extremely convenient to restaurants, shops, tour company offices, and public transport. I passed through Goreme, which has more tourists than locals, several times and I was very happy I chose to stay in Urgup.
The staff was friendly and helpful. There are two things travelers should be aware of though. First there is a mosque across the street and the call to prayer is quite loud. I had no trouble sleeping though. This may not be a good choice for you if you have trouble with stairs. My in-suite bathroom was about five feet above my room, accessed by stone stairs. Stairs are also required to reach the terrace and upper rooms.

A nice hotel offering clean rooms. The regular rooms are small and, therefore, they are not furnished with wardrobes... Bathroom is relatively small; shower cabin is narrower than your home cabin. However, if you need a special room for your honeymoon, make sure to book a higher class room, there are just four of them.
Overall, the hotel is very romantic. Room walls are made of stone blocks, not painted. High wooden ceilings and wooden floors.

Staff is unbelievably great!
Cave hotel is unique and beautiful.
Urgup is a charming town.
Ziggy's Restaurant next door is the best kept secret in Cappedocea!
Only challenge is no AIr Conditioning in cave rooms so hot in the afternoon when it was very hot outside.

This is an extraordinary hotel - rooms literally in very very old caves dug centuries ago have been cleaned up and appointed with all the conveniences a traveler would want - and then some! The people at the desk and in the breakfast were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was fulsome and delicious. We had a wonderful time! (The one teeny drawback for older folks is that it is up a long and steep hill - fine to walk down but a challenge to get up especially after some of the lovely local wine - but taxis are plentiful and cheap.)
