Best option to visit Cappadocia. The staff was excellent, location was the best and you get to stay in a confortable but authentic cave room. They offer excelent tours and can arrange balloon rides for excelent prices. Wifi super fast! Thank you Kadir and Mustafa for all the support! Melhor opção para visitar Capadócia. A equipe foi excelente, a localização ótima em um autêntico, mas confortável quarto caverna. Eles oferecem tours excelentes e podem organizar passeios de balão por preços excelentes. Wifi super rápido! Obrigado Kadir e Mustafa por todo o apoio!

The hotel owner arranged pick-up from the airport and provided a regional tour for a very fair price. He was a knowledgeable guide, and went out of his way to make our visit interesting and full of fun. It was very much a personal service-type experience.

I liked everything what this great place offered

The bathroom is clean but wet after shower.
We stayed in the food storage cave which is one of the highlight of the trip. Kadir, who also bring guest to the trips was very knowledgeable about the history of tge region. He was such a humorous and sincere guy that made us very comfortable during our tour!

Breakfast was extremely poor. For example one kiwi was cut into 4 pieces and shared between two guests. Tiny and dried two pieces of tomato plus very thin Turkish cheese slices were frustrating. You can just get instant Nescafe and if you ask for Turkish coffee it was 5 TL. Dinner was expensive compared to the places in the city centre. Plus the wooden bathroom door could not be closed easily. That is why the whole room damn cold during the night
Location is perfect: very close to the city centre You are close to many sightseeings and if you look outside from your balcony there is a very nice view.

Best Tour Guide Ever!!! We travelled in a group of Six and all of us had wonderful time touring in Cappadocia with Mr. Kadir. Mr. Kadir, you are simply amazing! (not to forget about the wonderful accommodation too ^^ )

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.
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.

Room was clean but cold in winter because the room was made of stone. There was no slipper and shampoo.
The family members running this hotel was really really kind. They changed our room easily when we asked. Location, food and staff was good.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
October 18, 2014
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
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.

That I couldn't stay longer!!! Definitely recommend Elif Star and will return.
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!

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.
Friendly staff, convenient location close to many attractions, and, well, it's a cave.
October 4, 2014
rooms were dark
the tours that Kadir organised were excellent and wellpriced
October 3, 2014
dogs on nearby property barked all night every night
the room itself- dark and cosy with lovely Turkish rugs and fabrics Friendly manager who spoke English well walking distance to town unique experience

Bathroom without shower box.
The owner is very kind, and a very good guide. Rooms are simple, but really quiet.

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 location was good and the hotel was clean.

the atmosphere the professionalism the kindness

Dark room but we were in a cave after all. ;-)
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.

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 !
