"Very friendly and helpful hosts"

Peri Cave Hotel was very convenient and a great place to stay. The hosts were very friendly and helped us with all kinds of arrangements. It was not fancy or luxurious at all, but just simple and good.
This hotel is built into the "fairy chimneys" of Goreme. That was an awesome experience. By the standards of the other hotels we stayed in Turkey, it was very nice. It would be nice if there were daily maid service, but that doesn't seem to be the norm in Turkey on the Asian side. We liked that (again, unlike a lot of the Turkish hotels) there was a separate shower stall, so the water from the showerhead didn't get the whole bathroom floor wet while we bathed. I can't say how nice that was compared to other budget Turkish hotels! The breakfast was good. All in all, it was a budget hotel with a nice twist--being actually a "cave" hotel!

Mustafa and Jihan made us feel welcome from the start. Our flight was into Cappadocia was cancelled, and Mustafa tracked down our new flight (to a different airport) and made sure the shuttle picked us up. He gave great recommendations for activities for our four days there, and was able to get us discounts in some cases. When we had a small complaint about one of the tours, he immediately called the company. Even though he was quite sick that week, he made sure to come in every day to check on us. Jihan, his assistant, always had a ready smile and cup of hot tea for us. I learned a great deal about Turkey from our many conversations with him.
The hotel is located very close to the center of Goreme and is in easy walking distance of many sights and the bus station. The arch rooms are a little small, but charming, and the dining room is always open if you need more space or want to talk to others.
Mustafa and Jihan made Cappadocia one of my new favorite travel destinations.
