Great Base to explore Cappadocia-Vineyard Cave Hotel

This report really belongs in Asia, as that is where the lovely area of Cappadocia is, but Europe is where they have Turkey listed...

Cappadocia is a wonderous place. My heart literally sang when I rounded the corner to the Open Air Museum. You will love it too, I am sure...

There may be more luxurious places to stay in Cappadocia, but I guarantee you will not find a friendlier and more accommodating place to call home. Hasan and Osman literally tell you, "Our home is your home" and they mean it! I choose VCH because of the positive reviews I had read. I was glad I did!

Osman is a new friend. He was so kind to write to me before I left to see if there was anything they could do to help me. I had already arranged tours with another tour company, so could not partake of their guided personal tours, but Osman's English is so good, you would not be disappointed if you toured with them. Upon arrival, neither Osman or Husan were there but I was well taken care of by Osman's female relatives (cousins?) They make the jewelry, which is absolutely beautifull, and yes, I did buy a piece.

I was in room #6, which is a double room with a great bath. Part of the suite is in the cave, which was exciting in itself. This suite had a single bed in the first room and a double bed in the main room, so it would be great for two friends or a family. BTW, I came directly from the IST airport and an overnight flight from the US, so the comfortable beds and wifi connection when I woke early in the morning were a real plus.

As everyone reports, the breakfast were out of this world! The best honey I have ever had, and Hasan's eggs were the best of the whole trip. He will tell you his secret recipe if you politely ask... It was cold and rainy the two days I was there, so the nice warm breakfast really helped start the day. I did not get any good pictures from the balcony I was so looking forward to being on, as it was always raining. The balloon rides were all cancelled, so the tip about booking for the first morning is a good one. I did go see the whirling dirvish show which I enjoyed. I thank Osman for driving me up and back and ordering pizza for me to eat in the room. (6 TL, not bad!!!) Oh, and speaking of money, they will change money for you at the going rate with no commission. Well worth changing most of your money here...

Would I stay here again? In a heartbeat. While it does not look like a normal hotel (and I think that is why one reviewer wrote scary), it is close to the main drag and very quiet and comfortable. The best part, though, are the hosts. This becomes your home away from home!
