Trip Report Cappadocia Hotel

Jump to last reply

Just back from 2 nights at Sacred House in Urgup. We did not realize that landing at Kayseri Airport the drive was a good hour away from the tourist areas of Capadoccia (Urgup, Goreme, etc).
Fortunately I called Sacred House from IST airport to find out about transportation, I could not recall if my agent had booked this for me. Fortunately the very efficient, friendly and outgoing manager Yesen got us on a shared shuttle bus (about 10 passengers) for a mere 30 TLR which is a huge bargain. A private cab would have been over $100.00 usd.
Anyway the hotel is very lovely, we stayed in a cave room in this cave hotel. However, please note small pieces of sandstone fall off occasionally and feel like sand on your skin. Also besides the door there is no other natural light (no windows). We did see many of the gorgous suites in this hotel and one was more inspiringly decorated that the other- only a few are in the actual cave. Breakfast on the upper terrace was delicious, creative & with beautiful presentations. They greet you with open arms and a welcome drink. Yesen was eager to please - made dinner recommendations, reservations and arranged transportation at good prices.
The courtyard and all rooms are tastefully presented. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Urgup doesn't have as many shops as Goreme, but it has nice restaurants - for shopping a cab ride to Goreme is about 22 TLR - pretty cheap and about 15 mins away by cab. It's also a very nice town, more to do than in Urgup, but do not know anything about their hotels. Just want to put out a good word for Sacred House and their excellent staff.
