We had a great stay in Elif Star Cave Hotel! Kadir let us check in early at around 10 in the morning after our long travel from Istanbul with night bus. He arranged the tour for us and even gave us discount for the green tour even though our balloon flight was cancelled. The cave room was really nice with antique decoration. The bed is good, the bathroom is clean and hot water is available all the time. Breakfast are great and the family are very friendly. The hotel is close from the bus terminal and Kadir even offered to pick us up when we arrived. We stayed in a family room and was given a room with a balcony and nice view of the valley. Will totally recommend this hotel for your cave experience in Goreme.
There were no slippers in the room. Since it was winter, the bathroom is a bit cold, maybe it'd be better if the hotel provide slipper for the bathroom as well. More hanger (or maybe rack) in the bathroom might also help to put more clothes for change after shower.
The family members running this hotel was really really kind. They changed our room easily when we asked. Location, food and staff was good.
Room was clean but cold in winter because the room was made of stone. There was no slipper and shampoo.
it's an authentic cave hotel, 5 min from the main town, and 5 min from Pigeon valley. Highly recommended for the cave experience. Abundant hot water and excellent water pressure. Relatively clean given it's a cave. I had no problem with wifi connection at all. The family is welcoming.
it's really cold when I was there during December. While there is a heater the heat is non existent at best. I learned to ask for an extra blanket, also it helped a bit to always close the bathroom door.
Great location, excellent home-made dinner, nice cave rooms, Kadir (the owner) and his family are extremely helpful and kind, they provide lots of information and help to organize everything.
This was a lovely place to stay. Kadir and his family are wonderful people and we had a fantastic day on the Green tour with Kadir as our guide. We would HIGHLY recommend going with Kadir's tour. He knows s much about so much :). The room was perfect. Cave for bears to hybernate after eating too much kebab. :)
The owner Mr.Kedhir is an outstanding gentlemen more than happy to help and speaks many languages. Sleeping in a cave was an exciting experience and we really enjoyed every moment in cappaducia, dont ever think of no doing the balloon ride its a must and the blue tour it worth it. The red tour you can do it yourself all the attractions are nearby. Shops and restaurants are walking distance. Ask the hotel for airport transportation before you arrive and a package tours including the balloon ride the hotel can give you a good price.
Short walk into the village, great breakfast everyday, friendly staff, warm rooms. wifi was so-so - better to jump on early morning before it gets sluggish from other guests.
Higher rooms allow the outside noise in much more than lower rooms. The owners can't help that there are dogs barking all night though.
Our family were welcomed by the friendly receptionist and housekeeper. Although they spoke minimal English, it was enough to get by. They also assisted in carrying our heavy luggages up the stairs. As we got a family room, we had a private balcony to ourselves, which you can witness hot air balloons flying in the early morning. We then met with Kadir, the owner and was impressed by his warm hospitality. Breakfast was good as well. Kadir/Ferez also went the extra mile by giving us a lift to the bus station when we checked out. Overall, impressed with Elif Star. It has definitely been a great experience at Cappadocia with them as well.
Kadir is the owner and a fantastic host. He planned the itinerary for us and was flexible to last minute changes. He brings his own tour group is knowledgeable. Pre-trip, he was already very prompt in replying our queries. The room is clean and big. The location is just 5-10 mins walk from the bus station and yet we were spoilt when he fetched us to and fro with our luggage.
There is no television in the room. However, we understand that it is difficult to have one as the walls are thick (cave hotel) and hence difficult to pull the wires. We were ok with this as we have even more time to explore the beautiful Cappadocia
The cave room was beautiful and bed comfortable with a lovely balcony overlooking the landscape but still within 2 minutes walk of Goreme centre. Hosts were amazing and take very good care of their guests ensuring you have the best stay and quality tours. Highly recommend the sunset balloon ride! Host speaks English and Japanese!
That I couldn't stay longer!!! Definitely recommend Elif Star and will return.
Friendly staff, convenient location close to many attractions, and, well, it's a cave.
Göreme is very touristy. Elif star is, thankfully, a bit out of the main drag, but one could likely find a far more interesting, unique, and attractive hotel in a neighboring town.
the tours that Kadir organised were excellent and wellpriced
rooms were dark
the room itself- dark and cosy with lovely Turkish rugs and fabrics Friendly manager who spoke English well walking distance to town unique experience
dogs on nearby property barked all night every night
The owner is very kind, and a very good guide. Rooms are simple, but really quiet.
Bathroom without shower box.
The location was good and the hotel was clean.
The only thing I was disappointed with was the breakfast. The food was fine, but we were asked to pay extra (about 3 euros) for coffee, which tasted very bad. Water was also extra, and I consider this one of the most basic elements of a free buffet breakfast. Disappointing!
the atmosphere the professionalism the kindness
Rooms quite dark (it's a cave!) but well presented, and great spot. Host lovely and knowledgeable. Very attentive and staff the same! Recommend to anyone wanting to stay in cappadoccia.
Dark room but we were in a cave after all. ;-)
It is a very nice and cheap hotel, run by an adorable family that is ready to make you happy. With them you feel like home. Moreover the manager is sometimes your guide for the visits and he is so interesting and funny. The hotel has the best price for touristic visits and other activities such as baloon flight, do not forget to do that ! It is near the center : 5 minutes by feet. So do not hesitate and choose this hotel for your vacation in Cappadocia !
Kader and his family are very welcoming and helpful. They do everything for their visitors to have the best trip in Cappadocia. The bedrooms are always clean and spacious, the beds are confortables and the bathroom is big and clean. You feel peaceful and higly relaxed in a cosy and beautiful place!
We did like everything!
Great location, Kadir was excelent host, we are glad to stay this hotel. thank you very much...
KINDLY STUFF, BEAUTIFUL ROOMS, NEAR THE CENTER, BUT VERY PEACEFUL
NOTHING AT ALL
Staff : very welcoming, not irritating, very willing to serve you
Only owner of hostel speak good English, sometimes need to call the owner when communicating with staff in hostel who doesn't speak English / not very good English .
Everything, but specially the food and the friendliness and availability of the manager (Kadir). The hostel is located outside the city, although near, and has a quiet and nice environment. The staff is very friendly and atentious.
All the rooms are cave rooms. the family atmosphere, personal attention given by Mr Kedir and his wife, makes you feel very comfortable. I would go there again, if I had to visit cappadocia.
