Lonely Planet 2009-2010 Edition "Our Pick"
In 1993 pioneering Ali Yavuz became Goreme's first hotelier to step above the backpacker sector. Not just because he had to climb Aydinli Hill to reach his family home, which now boasts the village's best terrace for surveying the Cappadocian dreamscape, but because he converted it into Goreme's first boutique hotel...
Lonely Planet 2007-2008 Edition
Ali Yavuz started a trend when he opened the Kelebek back in 1993. At that Goreme was full of basic backpacker joints and had no boutique-style hotels. Setting out to change this, he adopted a winning formula that has since been copied by rivals throughout Cappadocia...

What's not to love? We stayed in the boutique section, in suite #6, with huge soaking tube and heated floor in the vast marble bath (also shower), fresh towels and terry robes every day, fireplace, sitting room, satellite flat screen TV, comfortable bed,. The breakfast is the best we had in Turkey (do take them up on their offer of a cheese and tomato omelette), the people very nice, the lounge with computer and free wi-fi and free tea at all times so pleasant that we had to remind ourselves of all the great things to do outside the hotel.
Mustafa gave us great advice about getting from Cappadocia to the Hittite cities, and those who went on his tours found him extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The restaurant was fine for supper, and the Orient Restaurant, recommended at the hotel, is first class and a short drive or walk away. We would go back in a New York minute.
