Very well situated hotel with very helpful people. Kadir gave very good advice and is very knowledgeable. Very helpful as he willingly transport people to bus station and some places of attractions. Rooms were cleans and comfortable. Should have dinner there at least once as it is literally home cooked Overall fantastic experience.

Kadir was very helpful. He arranged balloon tour and guided tours for us. His wife is a great cook and his kids are super cute. The hotel was converted from a real cave. The view was awesome. The hotel is clean and comfortable.

Awesome place to stay, the owner is a very friendly guy, and an excellent tour guide (the best I had in 4 weeks in turkey). Breakfasts are tasty and filling, snacks are always stocked, and rooms are clean and comfy. Worst I can say about the place is that the hot water (which I used once) took 1 minute to...

It is an excellent hotel. The rooms are built within Cavas with traditional nomad decor. Near Goreme Open Museum. Your manager is a wonderful person, offers privates tours at a great price. We would definitely return.

It's a unique experience to stay in a cave hotel! Elif Star is a good choice because it's not too expensive but still comfortable. It's in a good location near the town centre and the owner is really helpful :)

How wonderfully weird to sleep in a cave room with traditional nomad decor (I.e. carpets on rough cave floor and bare rock walls)! The room is large, the bathroom spacious and everything was spotless. Pity we arrived late in the afternoon and left again early next morning as the place and the town seemed to have much hospitality to offer....
