Perfect Experience!Posted Sep 20, 2015 on Hotels
This review won't be able to do full justice for how good the stay was here. Colleen helped me so much as soon as I booked my stay. I emailed back and forth with her to let her know everything I wanted to do in the area. She booked a Turkish Nights dinner, a balloon ride, a day tour and a trip to an underground city for me. I was probably a big pain (expecially since I was only able to stay one night), but she always went above and beyond to make my stay exceptional. On top of the wonderful service, the cave rooms at this hotel are amazing! If they had anything like this in the States, it would easily be a few hundred dollars per night. Instead, this hotel is priced very affordably and located in a great part of the downtown. It's a 2 minute walk to the bus stop so it makes it very easy to get here. If I ever make it back to Urgup, I will be booking at this hotel again. Thanks for a perfect experience!

Lovely room with Hugh bathroom.Posted Aug 15, 2015 on Hotels
Great hotel that is walking distance from town centre with lovely terrace to have breakfast on and a quiet sit in the afternoon. Own where very helpful and accommodating for our late check in. The draw back would be the early morning call to pray but once over roll over and go back to sleep. People with mobility problems may find stair hard to get up and down.

Look no furtherPosted Aug 8, 2015 on Hotels
We booked this place because of the great reviews and those reviews were right! So many elements of the Hotel Konak are wonderful: the rooms are clean and full of character, the bed really comfortable, the shower great and the wifi very fast. Breakfast on the roof terrace was great as well. A full spread of meats, cheeses, olives, fresh fruit and vegetables and fresh bread, as well as eggs cooked to order (try the menemen—delicious!) The location couldn’t be any better. It’s right by the center of town and bus station, so there are plenty of restaurants and shops around. All of the famous Cappadocian landmarks are easily accessible from the hotel. As fellow hoteliers and independent travellers, we found the owners, Colleen and Adnan to be very friendly and professional when it came to giving information about local attractions and tours. They gave details of tours without being pushy and were very helpful and knowledgeable when we had questions about how to discover things on our own. Both owners made a real effort to ensure that all of their guests were fully satisfied. We were glad we decided to stay in Urgup, as it felt less plastic than Goreme; our stay at Hotel Konak was likewise a great decision.

Wonderful cave hotel with attention to detailPosted Aug 2, 2015 on Hotels
What a fantastic treat this was. This cave hotel was fully-renovated within the past 5 years and plenty of tasteful and original details were retained. Proprietor is an energetic and very helpful veteran of the area. She helps to train area guides at the nearby university and is very familiar with local services and guides. Strong recommendation for a comfortable, affordable cave hotel experience.

An Almost Perfect Boutique Hotel in UrgupPosted Jul 11, 2015
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.

Simply perfectPosted Jul 6, 2015 on Hotels
Wow! Before booking this hotel, I did quite a bit of research. The family that runs this hotel are the nicest and most helpful service I have seen. They bend over backwards to accomidate, help plan, and make your trip as rewarding as Cappadocia should be. A+!

Absolutely fantastic!Posted Jun 26, 2015 on Hotels
I read a review that this hotel was a past guests best hotel experience, well it's mine too. Honestly, everything about it Deserves top marks. The room, bed, bathroom - delux shower, the chambermaids, hotel management, breakfast service, all brilliant. The view - wonderful. You can eat breakfast on the balcony upstairs, breathtaking view. All you need is on your doorstep, grocery store, restaurants, coffee shops and opposite is a Turkish bath/ Hamam. The bus station is just up the road so you can catch the overnight bus to anywhere in the country. The mushroom stones are a 10min walk awAy. Must afar Pasion a short bus ride away. Irgun is quiet and less touristy than its neighbor Goreme, so it provides a more authentic taste of local life. Would definitely stay here again. High recommend it!

Great view and authentic hospitalityPosted Apr 27, 2015
Pros: Fantastic staff going out of their way to answer questions and to ensure you enjoy your stay!
Location: Located centrally in Urgub - most tours of the region can pick you up from the hotel, and there are good restaurants / bars close to hotel
If you're looking to experience authentic Cappadocian hospitality while staying in a traditional cave dwelling, look no further! The hotel has been restored over to have modern amenities with spacious and comfortable rooms. The staff are very helpful with booking tours / arranging travel, and the breakfast provided is excellent. The hotel has a great terrace overlooking central Urgub.

Everything I could hope for in Cappadocia and morePosted Mar 10, 2015
Pros: I loved the uniqueness of each room at the property, but most of all the amazing hospitality. Colleen helped coordinate everything we needed/wanted!!
Location: Excellent central location in Urgup, Across the street from the hamam, block away from grocery store and central Urgup restaurants and shops
Best hotel experience ever (and I've slept on all 7 continents and in 32 countries). I took a quick overnight with my father to fulfill my dream of seeing Cappadocia and Colleen and Adnan at Hotel Cave Konak made the entire experience perfect! Amazing rooms, unparalleled hospitality and perfect location. First, Colleen and Adnan are incredible hosts as others have stated. Colleen speaks english (native) and turkish and was able to coordinate our airport transfer, tour, balloon ride and anything else we could think of, I cannot express how easy and fun she made our short stay in Cappadocia. Utilize her knowledge and services and make your trip easier! For her hospitality alone I would strongly recommend the hotel. But Hotel Cave Konak is more than the kind and caring owners. The rooms themselves are simply amazing. My cave room was such a unique experience that cannot be replicated anywhere in the world and was exactly what I wanted (Byzantine room). My father stayed in a 1/2 above 1/2 below ground room which was also amazing (Ottoman). Check the hotel website for room descriptions but any room will delight. Location is perfect, near center of town and Urgup is not over touristy like Goreme (our tour crossed through Goreme about 10x in one day!), Urgup has a nice local, friendly and real feel. A hamam is across the street and grocery stores, restaurants and shops are around the corner. Other hotels I looked at in Urgup are about a 15 minute walk from these conveniences.
