Our first experience of staying in a cave... but when in Cappadocia why not! The room was comfortable, decorated with local handicrafts and felt very authentic. The bathroom was functional, very clean and hygienic. Linen and towels were spotless. The tea/coffee making facilities were a great touch, so too were the rose smelling toiletries. Rooms are cleaned daily. We had...

Had a wonderful stay at this little cave hotel. The host is fantastic with perfect English and so much knowledge of the area and history of Turkey. I found breakfast a little light but it is really cheap so great value stay. Highly recommend.

My wife's parents had this hotel highly recommended to them by some friends, so we decided to stay there with my wife's family on a getaway to Cappadocia. We couldn't be happier with the service we received here. Kandir, the manager of the hotel is exceptional at attending to every need you might have and is a licensed tour guide...

The staff at Elif Star went out of their way to assist us--not only with our stay in Cappadoccia, but also in getting to the next leg of our journey. They also let us stick around for hours after we checked out while we waited to depart. BONUS: their dog is always down to play.
