“Mora than fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

It was completely an amazing experience especially with the staff's unlimited hospitality. Breakfasts, coffees, views, rooms make us feel in more than holiday. Although it was a quite small amount of time that wespent there, we felt like taking a rest for a month. Once weleft, we started again our next visit. We still remember its delicious taste.

Years have been passed since your last visit... Sacred House expanded and deserves a new visit.

We have 21 rooms now with a stunning restaurant & bar, underground SPA that might take away you breath.

Looking forward to serve you again in near future.

My husband and I stayed at sacred house on jan,2012 for 3 days. From the moment we walked in , not only the beautiful surroundings but the special treatment from all the staff, especially the owner/ manager. The rooms were beautiful and unique. The breakfast delicious, beautifully presented. They assisted us in booming a hotair balloon tour, spa ,transportation, dervish dancers and restaurant reservations. The highlight of our stay was our special dinner at the hotel which was in a private cave like setting just for the two of us. The food, the music,the presentation, the ambiance, the candles , the wine, the service etc. My husband is not easily impressed and not the most romantic but he even asked me for a dance. We have traveled extensively and this was one of our best experiences ever. I will definitelly love to goback.

My daughter & I stayed at Sacred House in January 2012, in the room of the Antique Tiles, which couldn't have been a better choice; since I love collecting old tiles myself. The room and bathroom were lovely. It was a very restful, peaceful place for us, after traveling for awhile. A day tour was easily arranged for us the owner. The staff was great, arranging a late arrival snack, and a late breakfast for us. They were also very accommodating for a vegetarian diet and the food was delicious

I've stayed in hundreds of hotels around the world, but Sacred House in Urgup is by far the most romantic hotel I've ever stayed in. From the moment I arrived, I knew it was going to be someplace special thanks to the very attentive and welcoming staff, which treated us like old friends. We had selected the Fairies' Nest for our accommodations - it's a spacious deluxe room with stone arched ceiling, a fireplace, very comfortable bed and an ensuite bathroom with heated floor, vaulted domed ceiling (and chandelier that's nearly as large as the one in the bedroom) and huge tub for relaxation. While I definitely enjoyed Urgup and the surrounding Cappadocia region, I would enthusiastically return to Sacred House as a destination unto itself. If you want style and luxury in the middle of Turkey, this is the place.

Room Tip: Be sure to go onto Sacred House's website to view each of the themed rooms in advance. We had an...

We couldn't have been more impressed with the Sacred House. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with very attentive care and exceptional service. We immediately felt welcomed to Cappadocia after our long day of travel. The location is great for exploring Urgup, and other nearby villages with very prompt taxi service that the hotel arranges for you. Staying in the Sacred House is really a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will not forget, due to the comfort of the rooms and the elegant atmosphere in the entire hotel. To give an idea of how committed the staff was to making our stay wonderful, they even delivered a piece of jewelry that I had forgotten to our next hotel, and it was there before I even knew I had lost it!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Fullmoon Suite and thought it was really romantic. It is especially nice if you ar...

The hotel is above average. The level of service is a European 4 - 5 stars but it's a boutique so it's quite small. The pricing is on the high end for the region but not the most expensive.

The meals at Sacred House are the best we had in the area - high quality,large portions. The breakfasts are huge. If you hang out in any of the lounges they'll offer variety of tea.

The hotel's concierge was able to hook us up for all activities for reasonable prices. I was able to negotiate better prices in person but maximum 10% discount. Likely if you're very thrifty you can negotiate down. In the tourist season you may get stuck on huge group tours so make sure you request the mini-bus.

The location is in a kind of more upscale city in the region - everything we found was targeted at tourists. Do take a day to walk around, there are plenty of caves to just walk into there. Some are still occupied!

There are a few points that lowered my rating from 5 star and actually I would consider staying in a different hotel next time. Believe it or not there are a number of similar luxury hotels in that city. Sacred House is the most wildly decorated that we saw - we went to a couple others just to check them out.

1. The music in the hotel was really out of control. They played it from 8am to 10pm. Very very loud. We couldn't sleep - and we had to wake up at 5am for the balloon ride once. I called every single day to lower or turn it off. I think each room has a sound system, why blast music outside? It totally ruined the atmosphere.

2. They totally didn't tell us that the free hotel shuttle is ONE WAY. So you have to pay on the way back. For a seemingly luxury hotel we thought they'd cover the cost.

3. There are no phones in the rooms so you cannot communicate with hotel staff. If you need something you have to leave your room. Kind of unusual for a 4+ star hotel. And since we had to call every night about the blasting music I called from my cell. Kind of weird.

Other than that it's a really good place to stay! We'd recommend it for a nice retreat. We weren't able to meet any other guests but suspect they would be interesting folks.

Room Tip: They're all good!

very good design rooms with fireplace and bath-tub (fairy nest). Definitely best room for that value at the area. If the view was better the prize wouldn't be same think. Breakfast is very very good, service is great: very polite and warm. 1000% recommended.
