Omg, they treat me like a king, Front Desk perfect in customer sastifaction, place awesome, I will book again sure, fully recomendedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Thanks to Aydinli, 2 days in Göreme was perfect. Staffs were very kind and professional. They arranged for both of our tours (balloon and Green) and we were more than satisfied. They arranged for our sedan transfers from Nevşehir and to Kayseri, and it was very convenient. We especially liked the breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceptionally Welcoming and Hospitable!"
The owners and staff of the Aydlindi Hotel went above and beyond. They recommended amazing hikes and excursions (I definitely recommend the Red Valley hike) AND dropped us off and picked us up took FREE of charge! Great for conversation over apple tea! The suite was awesome! Great location and views of Goreme and the breathtaking surrounding landscape. […] Go here!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great experience and friendly staff"
I found this hotel on Expedia and was excited to stay in a cave in Goreme. The staff was really nice and very friendly. They made us feel like we were staying with friends. The room was great, the location is perfect and the breakfast was the best we had in Turkey. Really a great experience and a good deal for the price. I hope we can stay here again […] sometime.

"Great location, well run, helpful staff"
Within a day after we booked, the hotel emailed us to offer arrangements on transportation from the airport which was a hour (80 km) away and to suggest tours including the balloon ride. The companies they named were actually my first choice because they were highly recommended in the lonely planet tour book. I felt then that I could trust all their […] suggestions. Upon arrival, the owner Mustafa and his son served us well, booking all our tours: balloon, underground city, cooking and whirling dervish show. The hotel itself was beautiful and well run. Turns out five years ago Mustafa turned his ancestral home into this hotel, bringing with him his 32 years of experience in the hotel industry starting as receptionist, moving on to sales etc. all over Turkey. The staff were mostly from Mustafa's extended family and went out of their way to accommodate our travel schedule, even offering an early breakfast (3am) option for our early morning departure. The hotel is very close to downtown and four of the restaurant picks in lonely planet tour book. The ATMS are very close also, no problem getting the euros and Turkish lira charged by the tour companies. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing friendly hotel"
Aydinli was great. They helped us arrange all our tours, drove us around for free, and had great breakfast. The location is perfect for goreme and for hiking in the valleys. I want to go back and wouldn't stay anywhere else.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful experience in Cappadocia"
As soon as I made the reservation for two night stay at the Aydinli Cave House via expedia.com, the hotel staff sent me an e-mail confirming the reservation. In addition they arranged the booking for the balloon tour, and two full day (red and green) tours at the reasonable prices. They also arranged the transport between the airport and the hotel. […] Upon arrival at the airport, the driver was waiting for us at the exit door with a pickup sign. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great budget cave hotel"
Stay here if you get a good rate. Most likely there are better quality cave hotels in the area but the friendly and helpful staff is the main reason to stay here. They will help you book tours, book hot air balloon ride, make suggestions on dining, provide complimentary drop-off and pick-up to sites, and good conversation. A few things to note: (1) […] Our room did not have air conditioning. Not a big deal for us since we like it warmer, but something to note if this is something you think you would like during the summer. (2) Towels are clean but definitely does not look or feel clean (3) Bathrooms are clean, but shower floors have scratches that may make it look dingy (4) Avoid certain rooms if you have limited mobility (5) This is far from luxury accommodation, but is a nice mid-range boutique hotel or something similar to a B&B. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Made our honeymoon fantastic!"
My husband and I are currently on our honeymoon through Turkey & Greece. Although we left Cappadocia only a few days ago, we miss it already and couldn't wait to write a review. We booked Aydinli after reading about this cave hotel on multiple websites. We were thrilled...I can't say enough nice things about them. But if you want more details, I will […] list all the ways the staff at Aydinli (especially Fatih) made our stay fantastic. First of all, they gave us their largest suite for our honeymoon...it was ENORMOUS! Looked like a museum with all the beautiful decorative pottery accents from the Cappadocia region. The bathroom alone was bigger than the "deluxe room" we stayed at in Istanbul! They also gave us fruit and a nice bottle of regional wine as a treat. We booked an extra night and were moved to another room... it was their smallest room & honestly this was still decent size (though we were sad to leave the lap of luxury). Aydinli is a family run hotel and they genuinely treat you like family. They were so attentive and really went the extra mile such as making a point to chat & offering tea & snacks when we were in the lobby area, booking our shuttles to & from the airport, making sure we had breakfast snacks & drinks when we had an early flight, and even sending my jacket to Greece when I left it at the hotel! Thanks Mustafa & Fatih...you are the best! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Try This Cave Hotel"
This is a great hotel! The service was superb and the room spectacular. The room was very comfortable. I'd read general cave hotel reviews about dampness and temperature. This was as nice as any hotel anywhere. Our 700 year old room was modern and the bath luxurious. The staff was always helpful, even giving rides to nearby sites or hiking trails. It […] is family run and their pride is reflected in service and quality. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel. Great Service. Rooms are cave. Best hotel for your money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife and I loved Aydinli Cave House. Mustafa, his family, and staff were all wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful. They will give you a lift to nearby attractions and help you arrange tours or balloon rides if you'd like them to. It is a quick walk downhill to the center of Goreme. If you are looking for a quaint cave hotel that is reasonably priced […] with a helpful staff, you won't go wrong with Aydinli. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything about Aydinli Cave House was exceptional. The location was great, it was clean and homey, and it couldn't have been better. Upon arrival they were so welcoming. They had us sit down in the lobby and brought us tea and cookies. The staff was so helpful helping us plan our stay in Goreme from arranging airport pick up and drop off to suggesting […] tours, hikes, restaurants (seriously, just ask where to eat for each meal and you won't be disappointed), and hot air balloon companies to even driving us to the Open Air Museum, dinner, and a great place to start our hike. Breakfast in the morning was great to wake up to as well! We were even chatting with a local in the town who works at another cave hotel, and he even confirmed that Aydinli is a great place to stay to receive the whole experience. My three friends and I who stayed there, highly recommend this place if you go to Cappadocia! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely and hospitable cave hotel"
The location is perfect and service is great. It's a family business and the hotel used to the family home. There is someone to drive you to any site that you want to go to. Room was amazing and it's a must do to live in a cave hotel which in Capadoccia. The only complaint is that when you ask them to book activities for you, they direct you to a handful […] of suppliers that they get the most kickback from. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
""good value for the money but not great""
The structure of the hotel is very nice, however the furniture could use a little update, the sofas in the room and the tablecloth made it look a little dingy even if the room was clean. Breakfast was really good and the staff was very friendly. A BIG criticism is that they arranged transportation to the airport for us and we almost missed our flight […] because the shuttle stopped in three more hotels and stopped to fuel the car.... I would expect that at the time of booking the shuttle the hotel would tell the shuttle company the time of our flight, or would have allotted more time for transportation since that was very stressfull.... If I went back to Cappadocia I would try and stay at Avanos since Goereme town is not very nice. They also commented that Goreme Balloons was not a company they would recommend and we had an extraordinary experience with them, they were punctual, offered a light snack before the ride and had a very professional crew.

"Absolutely, will return."
Excellent staff. Always helpful and attentive. Superb breakfasts. Good variety, omelettes prepared to perfection. Excellent atmosphere.Genuine Expedia guest review
We selected this hotel based on previous reviews, and we were not dissapointed. Aydinli Cave House definitely lived up to the hype. The rooms are large, comfortable, clean and warm (which was essential as it was really cold outside). The staff were incedibly helpful and friendly. The breakfast was the same each morning, but the variety and freshness […] of the food on offer made sure that it wasn't boring (Hot Cheesy Gozleme brought around to each table) I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, it was perfect for our 3 night stay.

"Great Hotel; Amazing Staff"
We arrived a day late as a result of illness, and they could not have been more helpful; not only did they let us stay the 2nd night, but the owner's son spent at least half an hour helping us to rebook our following flight, our rental car, and our next hotel to allow us to stay an extra day. We had also received a free upgrade to our room without even […] asking for it. Breakfast was delicious, and there was no pressure to buy tours. The only downside was a recommendation for a nearby restaurant, Seten, which was described as "the best in Goreme", but was mediocre (and pricey) at best. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel/wonderful staff"
Hotel was beautiful and the staff was so warm, welcoming, and helpful. One day we wanted to see one of the underground cities and since the cab was late, the owner's son drove us. The owner also helped set up our transfer to/from the airport. Breakfast every morning is delicious and is served on a balcony overlooking the scenery. Every detail of the […] hotel was beautiful --- even the nice plants in our room. Ideally located in the town of Goreme - close to the caves,our hot air balloon ride, and some good hiking! Loved this hotel and would recommend it to all! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location is perfect, the breakfast very good, with the view of the mountains. The staff is really nice and helpful! Loved the experience and have already recommended to my friends that are going on December!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, beautiful setting"
Enjoyed our stay at Aydilini--staying in a cave was amazing and a must do in Goreme. A little turned off by the owner pushing us to use the hot air balloon company (butterfly) that they have a partnership with, which was 30 euros more than what we paid in town for an even better company (atmosfer). Also, stayed for 3 days and there was minimal cleaning […] of the room each day. Other than those two issues, it was a wonderful stay. Amazing breakfast with spectacular view. Would recommend to someone visiting...just book your own hot air balloon ride! (which is a must do in Goreme) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel was once the owner's childhood home. The friendly atmosphere and warmth of the owner and his staff is unequaled!!!! The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The staff is willing to help you 24/7. The owner actually acted as our personal guide through all kinds magical places. The generosity of spirit in this hotel […] was a once in a lifetime experience. Breakfast buffet was great. The location is good, as well, this part of Turkey is an experience not to be missed!!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"plenty of charm"
We stayed at the room no.6; a really spacious and a beautiful one with a private terrace over Göreme. Clean establishment, warm welcome. Would be better if they can fix some small comfort issues and decorative details. (replacing bathroom fixtures, adding a real but visually discrete A/C, a better sunshade solution on the breakfast terrace... etc)Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a wonderful place the staff was very friendly breakfast was wonderful. The only draw back was that is was very hot in the 90's and they do not have air conditioning. I would recommend the hotel to everyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"AMAZING Place to Stay!"
I cannot say enough about how great our experience at Aydinli was!! Mustafa, Mert, and Cem were all amazing hosts! The room itself was awesome - unlike any other room (hotel or otherwise) I have ever experienced. The breakfast was delicious (grape molasses? Incredible!)! And everyone at Aydinli was above and beyond any expectations of nice. We were […] fortunate enough to have Mert and Cem take us on tours two of the days we were there and avoided the crush of traditional tours. Both were extremely knowledgeable and fun. They were also extremely helpful in letting us know what things to do, what to avoid, where to eat, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! I would recommend Aydinli to anyone! They definitely spoiled us for future hotel stays! Thank you for a great time in Goreme!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A memorable lifetime experience!"
This was one of the most wonderfully unique places my wife and I have ever stayed. I felt like I was staying with old friends. The hotel manager Mert was incredibly charming and knowledgeable about Turkey, Istanbul and Cappadocia. He spent a great deal of our stay driving us around the various beautiful little towns as we discussed all aspects of Turkish […] culture and the very many different attractions. He also gave us some great recommendations for our return to Istanbul. I would go back to Turkey just to stay here again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great overall experience, highly recommended!"
Great very personal service by all members of the family. I stayed in a new room that still managed to feel like it was carved out of the cave itself...the father/owner Mustafa is a delight to talk with; he was actually born right there in the hotel! I will recommend this hotel to my friends in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly & Cozy Hotel in Cappadochia"
Aydinli Cave House Hotel is by far one of the best places I've stayed. You'll be greeted by the knowledgeable hotel manager who will you with a range of things to do, including hot air ballooning (a must), climbing up to the top of a fairy chimney (Ushisar Kalesi) carved into the side of a mountain in Ushisar village, hike the 4 km Pigeon's Trail through […] a magnificant valley from Uchisar to Goreme, and countless tours throughout the region where you'll visit monasteries (dating back to the Byzantine Empire) hidden deep in remote valleys. The hotel rooms are very clean and simple. The rooms feel as though you were in a medieval castle. Breakfast is served each morning with local fruits, yoghurt, breads, vegetables, cheeses, juices, and tea/coffee from which to choose. If you plan on visiting Cappadochia the Aydinli Cave House Hotel is a must. A truly wonderful experience!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Even better than pictures"
This "cave" hotel was much better that we expected or hoped for. The staff was very friendly, helpful and actually excited to have us as their guests. Even had a surprise birthday breakfast for me! Cappadocia is a very special place and the Aydinli made it even more special. Would definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect for warmth and hospitality"
The family who owns this hotel is wonderful. Mustafa was actually born in the dwelling and converted it into a hotel a few years ago. He did an excellent job on the renovation. What is more important though is his obvious love and concern for the area which is rapidly developing into a tourist economy. He is trying to maintain its integrity and keep […] its culture alive which is not an easy task. He and his family are present during breakfast and they cook special local dishes along with the usual Turkish buffet. He is starting to host dinners weekly which his wife cooks and I would highly recommend for an authentic Anatolian meal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Mustafa and his family were possibly the most hospitable people we meet in Turkey, I would recommend their hotel to anyone that's interested in visiting Cappadocia.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aydinli Cave Hotel - seriously romantic"
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights last week. The room itself was lovely (only complaint was a noisy bathroom fan - obviously not a big problem!) and the location can't be beat. Lovely terrace for breakfast and tea breaks. The staff were extremely helpful in making recommendations on balloon companies, getting a rental car for the day, etc., […] and dropping us off at the best location for walking the Rose Valley (which is a definite must do). Easy walk to the bus station and all the nice restaurants in Goreme. Easy walk to the Goreme open air museum, which is also, of course, a must do. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great cave hotel in Goreme"
This cave hotel was just great. We stayed in room 11, a family suite, with our adult daughter and her partner. The suite was comfortable and clean. The staff were very nice. They organised our early morning balloon flight. The views from our balcony over the town, were lovely, especially when the balloons were floating overhead.Genuine Expedia guest review
"700 year old cave!"
Excellent experience all around. Hotel is clean, authentic, well located and above all, staff is excellent. Very helpful, accommodating and friendly. The day we left, we had a 5:45am airport transfer picking us up so the night before they asked what we wanted for breakfast even though their breakfast service didn't start till 7:30am - they brought us […] breakfast to our room at 5:30am, just so we woudnt be on an empty stomach. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Full of Character, Nicest People, Best Service"
From the moment I called them, when they organised a shuttle bus, to the moment we left, on aforesaid shuttle bus, after having breakfast which they opened an hour early for us, the guys were fantastic. A quick question on whether they had any Hot Chocolate (which thy didn't) resulted in a phone call and then 5 minutes later a freshly made Hot Chocolate […] was presented at our door. absolutely brilliant. We were flying through having come to the end of our Turkey Journey and only had two nights in the hotel, recommend staying longer by the way, we missed loads. The guys helped us sort out the best things to do and as mentioned above mad our stay very comfortable. The rooms are full of character, ours was introduced to us as "having been my Grandmothers kitchen" great to see no TV to! If you like 5 star extravagance maybe not for you but definitely a nice place for me and my wife. Most Definitely recommend to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"They looked after us"
We enjoyed our stay, They organised our balloon flights with the best balloonist in Cappadoccia and we had a great time. They even gave me Turkish delight when we were checking out.

What a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are incredibly beautiful and comfortable. The location is ideal. And the people make it truly wonderful.

"Wish we had longer..."
This multi-level accommodation is built into the top slope of a hill in Goreme. Our junior suite was very spacious, with a reception room (with a fireplace), a cavernous (literally) bedroom, and a great bathroom with dual shower heads. Wi-fi worked great, the breakfast buffet was a step above other ones we had on this trip, and we slept very soundly […] in the comfy bed. The family running this hotel (which is also their residence) were very hospitable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cave hotel close to Goreme downton"
PROS: Hotel rooms are actually rock caves and this was a novel experience for us. The cave (i.e. the room) was large and spacious. Location was within walking distance to Goreme city’s eateries, shops, and ATMs. Free breakfast was good and the views from the top were nice. The staff and the hotel manager were genuinely friendly and helpful. Hotel arranged […] airport shuttle from Kayseri which came to 20 TLR per person (one way) which we thought was quite reasonable. One restaurant gave us a 10% discount because we were staying at this hotel. CONS: The furnishing was minimal and we had to operate out of our suitcases. There was a container for a mini-fridge but the mini-fridge was missing. The room had radiators for heating but no ventilation mechanism or fans. Closing the window at night used to make the room quite stuffy. The bathroom was dimly lit. Bath wall-tiles haven’t been scrubbed/cleaned for a long time and we could feel the slime on them. This resulted in a musty smell. The bathtub didn’t drain properly and we had to stand in a pool of water while taking a shower. Hotel said that they tried various fixes but the issue was still unresolved when we left after four nights. TIPS: Pricing for Balloon rides, group tours, horse riding, and Turkish night events can be obtained by contacting the organizers directly. We found Serap from “Reliable Travels” to be quite helpful.

An excellent hotel in good location. The difference, however,was the help and attention of the owner and staff. Organising bookings as well as taking you places free of charge was greatly appreciated. Breakfast was very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Aydinli Cave House was probably the best hotel we stayed in Turkey. Located close to the bus stand we were treated as family and not as guests (which is the hotel's stated policy as per Mustafa the owner). Cars were available for pick up from the bus stand and also for a bit of local sightseeing. The hotel was also willing to arrange for tours around […] Cappadoccia, Balloon Tours and Airport Transfers. Saves the hassle of having to scout around. The rooms were fantastic and each of them had a great view. Breakfast spread was good. The staff (most of them are family members of Mustafa) were brilliant. Ever smiling and helpful. Only minus point was the fact that there was no lunch/dinner options. On days when you have come back from a long tiring tour you really wish you had room service. But that is a minor quibble.

"Book it and book it now."
Cannot fault this hotel - great location with a short walk to the high st and everything the local area has to offer. Staff are uh-maaazing, they help with anything and everything. The room is freakin massive with what can only be described as a triple bed - I don't think king double does it justice. They also use Butterfly Balloons as their balloon […] operator of choice - you won't be disappointed. There really isn't a bad word to say about this place - if you haven't booked it already, more fool you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very accommodating! The manager acted almost as a travel agent for us, with emphasis on less-touristy activities. When we got in, we sat down with us and discussed how much time we had and he suggested option to get the most out of our time (over tea he provided). He drove us to trail heads and shuttled us from one town to other museums and explained […] how to find out way around. I highly recommend this place for the active traveler (I'm sure a relaxed traveler will have a great time as well.) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extraordinary Service. Perfect!"
I have never before experienced customer service that comes anywhere close to that of Aydinli's. Mat, Cem, Mustafa and his wife and the others are the friendliest and most genuine and generous people you could ever meet, doing above and beyond what's expected of them, to ensure you get the most out of your stay there. They booked tours, dropped us off […] to go for a hike and even wanted to take us to their favourite kebab joint. The rooms, views, breakfast and home-cooked dinners are incredible. A must if visiting Cappadocia! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
