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.

The great hospitality really made this place. It's a family run business offering complimentary turkish breakfast cooked by the wife, complimentary coffees in the mornings, great advice on what to do and the manager even took one of our day tours we did! Very likeable man with great English

I had a great stay at Elif Star Caves Hotel. Kadir (and his family) were so helpful throughout. He helped me plan my entire time (including hiking and the balloon tour) in Goreme and arranged everything for a good price. The rooms were great and comfortable and sleeping in a cave was surreal. Cannot recommend highly enough, one of the...

The location of Elif Star is very convenient (within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and the balloon launch viewpoint), but the real star of our stay was the service. The tours and hot air balloon ride that Mustafa helped us book were amazing, and any time something seemed to go wrong we didn't worry too much, because we knew we...

Our trip to Cappadocia was very memorable. We stayed at Elif Star Caves Hotel owned by Kadir. The site of the hotel was previously an Anatolian cave monastery so the rooms were spacey and comfortable. Our stay started with a trip on the hot-air balloon arranged by Kadir and after that we had a tour of Cappadocia visiting many places...

We had a fantastic time with Kadir, he was very knowledgeable about the different sites he took us to and he was very friendly and welcoming to us. We arrived at 23 pm and one of the girls in our group was feeling sick so he offered her some medicine and a cup of tea for her and the rest...

Kadir and his family were wonderful hosts! The hotel itself is interesting with its stone walls, and Kadir was very helpful in arranging anything we needed, from a tour to airport transportation. I highly recommend and would stay here again.

The hotel is well located, about a 5 min walk from the city center, where there are the all restaurants and shops.
