While traveling with a tour group of 14 people, we stayed two nights in this lovely hotel. It was, without a doubt, the most lovely setting on our 12-day tour. We were welcomed with a delicious drink on arrival, and blessed with a traditional Turkish send-off of water splashed across our path as we departed. The owner and staff were...

The bathrooms were pure luxury with heated floors, rain...

Combining the luxury of a modern hotel with the quaintness of an ancient cave dwelling.it suited us to be in a small village but others might prefer a larger town with a choice of restaurants. The cooking is simple, plentiful and traditional. The service was charming and attentive.

My small tour group unanimously chose Tafoni Evleri in Cappadocia as the highlight of our trip to Turkey. The rooms were individually and carefully designed and furnished (we toured each others' rooms to see the unique flavor of each room) and were spotless with many amenities. The food was excellent and service was superb without being intrusive. I would definitely...

“We stayed in the Roller nest Rm 104 a very comfortable large room with a lower level bath room with spa. The room has a four place dinning table and a cane setting with coffee table to relax after a long day. The bed was a joy to sleep in a very comfortable king size bed, we would recommend when you are in Cappadocia Turkey you stay at the Tafoni Houses Cave Hotel.”
