This is a lovely family run boutique hotel located in a small village about 10km away from Urgup. It is quiet with a totally local feel to it, away from the touristy area. I decided to stay at this hotel based on many great reviews and I was happy to make that decision. Okan was great ensuring I was comfortable in any way during my stay. He already knew what sightseeing I wanted to do during my vacation because I had asked him via email. On top of that, he checked in with me every day to make sure tours he arranged for me would be suitabe for me. He even took me to a jeep tour to go off the beaten paths to places only local people knew. Now that made a difference! I had such a blast and was happy I stayed there for 4 full days in order to appreciate not only major sightseeing, but also learned more about the local culture. If you ask him about what stores are good or which tour companies are more flexible with valued prices, he will give you best advice because he grew up in the village and has a vast knowledge of what Cappadocia has to offer.
Breakfasts and dinners prepared by his mother, Nurhayat, were superb using many organic vegitables from their own garden with fantastic Turkish flairs to them. (Thety serve you meat as well) I was basically in food coma after every meal!! The dishes included amazing Turkish dishes such as sarmasi, manti, dolma, salads (shepherd's salad and more..) tomato soup with cracked wheat, imam bayili yapimi, (It was incredibly amazing) pies, a dessert made of molasses, milk, and wheat flour, you name it... They make their own bread too! The breakfas includes aprico jam, fruits freshly delivered from their garden, lots of olives, cheese, ham, and even honey straight from a bee hive. Nurhayat is such an amazing cook! No wonder people come here from even outside of town just to have this awesome gastronomic experience.
His father, Yusuf, was kind enough to pick me up at and back to the airport.
Not really. But if you are looking for action, say at night scenes and shops, you may want to have a rental car because it is located a bit away from the main touristy & local town Urgup where there are more shops and restaurants.
