I would recommend this hotel to anyone, however it had some quirks. Our room was impressive but more attention to maintenance is going to be required or I can see things sliding. The bathroom ceiling had issues, the safe only opened with a pre-set code even when locked with mine, other minor details. I'd hate to see things get out of control as our room really was lovely. We ate in the restaurant three nights. The food was good but nothing stood out with a couple of the dishes tasting similar. Breakfast buffet was good with an average selection but what really made this for us was the woman cooking the breakfast pancakes. Found the staff a bit pushy on the packaged tours and didn't volunteer information on the alternatives except to downplay them. Town is an easy walk and hourly bus service exists between all the local towns and attractions so with a bit of prep work consider this alternative. Worked for us but we like to walk and explore. The tours charge for the convenience. I would recommend the balloon tour.

The hotel was gorgeous: exposed stone and interesting woodwork everywhere with traditional rugs all around. Our room was essentially a suite with a "living area" besides the sleeping area. Noise level was zero. On the other hand, I don't think many of the rooms would qualify as "caves." The restaurant was a bit disappointing, mainly because it seemed to be geared more towards groups rather than individuals. But the two best restaurants in Ürgüp were close by. The hotel will organize tours etc.
Family owned and take great pride in insuring your comfort. This was our second visit, the first was two years ago for our honeymoon. I am American and my wife is Turkish, plus we brought our niece and her husband. They heard us say our niece and her husband were newly weds and surprised them by upgrading their room free of charge. Also, while we were gone they put rose pedal in their room with romantic towel swans on the bed. The next day they surprised them with a fruit basket and bottle of wine, very nice of them to put the extra effort into making it special for them. The breakfast was included with our stay and the chef was fantastic and served a European breakfast along with eggs cooked the way you like. We asked for an extra comforter for our room and it was waiting when we got in that night. Manager/owner speaks fluent English and is as nice as they come and will help you out in any way he can. This is why we returned two years later and was treated with open arms and politeness. All rooms are very nice, just depends on how much you want to spend and what size of room you want. Even the basic room is really nice with large beds.

The hotel rooms and facilities are very nice and comfortable and the view is beautiful.
We stayed in a very romantic suite with a jacuzzi inside one of the rooms. The staff did everything they could to please us. I really recomend this place in the amazing Cappadocia.
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.
A nice hotel offering clean rooms. The regular rooms are small and, therefore, they are not furnished with wardrobes... Bathroom is relatively small; shower cabin is narrower than your home cabin. However, if you need a special room for your honeymoon, make sure to book a higher class room, there are just four of them.
Overall, the hotel is very romantic. Room walls are made of stone blocks, not painted. High wooden ceilings and wooden floors.
