We have 3 traditional Turkish rooms available ın our home ın a very quiet neighborhood. 3 private rooms wıth 8 beds could accommodate up to 8 people.
We run our own restaurant which serves local Turkish cuisines cooked ın a tandour. Breakfast ıs included ın the price.
We are well located, 5 minutes walk from the (email hidden) up from the Göreme bus station could be arranged ın advance.
We are a family of 4 and the guests are welcomed warmly by all of us. You will experience the real Turkish hospitality.
Goreme is a fabulous place to visit and if you have the chance to stop at this address please do. You will discover very great people that will welcome you as if you are family, they will help you out with your planning and suggest places to see. I was lucky enough that they accompanied me on a walk of one of the valley. Ethem and Muso welcomed me with tea even if it was late ( the flight was delayed then cancelled and the second flight was delayed again), but the room was ready and warm. Don't miss the breakfast and suppers, Muso is a great cook and it is such a nice ambiance when you can share with the family. I really enjoy my experience and if I come back to Turkey I will definitely go back to OCAK guesthouse and share more great moments. It was hard to leave that last morning. Tesekkurler for the great time.
I really enjoyed staying at Ethem's house. They were lovely and helpfull with me.
Picked me up from bus station, helped with booking for the ballon flight (which as unforgatable) and even offered a delicious breakfast and dinner.
I had a very relaxing time and love their dog.
Thanks very much to all family, specially for Müşo!
This is the best accommodation I've ever been in.
The room is very clean and comfortable, all the house is nicely furnished and restructured and you are sleeping between fairy chimneys in a town that is part of UNESCO World Heritage.
If that wasn't enough, you'll have the pleasure to meet Ethem and his family: their hospitality has been supreme and they sincerely allowed me to join the family for few days.
Ethem is very expert about the area and will be a precious help while organizing your trips; if you'll have will to listen to him, you will also find a very open-minded, wise and sincere friend to talk with and exchange points of view.
His wife is a great cook and is also running the restaurant just under your bedroom: she will prepare you an excellent breakfast everyday and, when coming back tired after a long day hiking, you'll always find delicious soups and dishes slowly cooked in tandour to refresh yourself.
My 4 days at Ocak guest-house have been the best and most interesting part of my trip: my only regret is I couldn't stay longer.
Staying with Ethem and his family was a wonderful experience. A homey feeling welcomes you as soon as you arrive. They made sure I was comfortable and warm. Food was great and fresh! Ethem and Mishu are great cooks. After dinner it felt good chilling out with the family over tea and peanuts. The room where I stayed in was big and well-kept. I had a good view of the hills from my window. The house is just walking distance to the main points in Goreme such as the bus station and open air museum. I highly recommend Ocak Guesthouse!
Ethem and his family were most welcoming to me during my stay with them. With an ideal location and Ethem's rapid renovations this is going to be a great hotel soon! Terrific food & ahomestyle atmosphere make this a very good value stay, I hope to return someday.
Our 5 night stay at the Ocak Guesthouse was the closest experience for us of staying with a Turkish family. Ethem and Meshir made us feel like special guests. We arrived and mentioned we needed bus tickets to Antalya and Ethem through much effort, as there was a holiday, not only found them but he drove me down to the bus depot to get them. The breakfasts were amazing and varied. We had our choice to eat breakfast in our room, on the terrace, or with the family. Our room was large and bright. The entire Guesthouse is incredibly clean.
Overall our stay at the Ocak Guesthouse is a highlight of our trip and made our visit to Goreme worthwhile.
We had a great time at Ethem Place. A great warm hospitality combined with helpfulness, humour, good food and individual info´s, so we had a fantastic time in Göreme . We stayed at his place for six days, got good infos about ballonflights, hiking, places to visit and the daily life in his family . We can highly recommend Ethem´s place for individual travellers of any (website hidden) FIVE STARS for that experience

Ethem's family made our stay in Kapadokya such an amazing experience ! The house, bathroom, bedroom, each of family members is beyond our expectation. Bathroom is 5 star. Ethem is very helpful. Ethem's wife is so caring. She teach us how to cook Turkish way. She even made us food similar to our hometown for us to bring together to other city. Ethem's daughters are beautiful and smart. They can speak English very well and give us no communication problem at all. Ethem's could guide you on what activity you can do in Kapadokya. This is Kapadokya host we will definitely recommend to you.
This was an excellent place for four people to stay, the space was giant and Ethem and his family were very friendly. The family restaurant upstairs was delicious and breakfast in the morning was comprised of home made yogurt, cheese, preserves, pepper sauce eggs and fresh fruit! All in all an excellent place to stay.
Stay at Ocak Guesthouse! Ethem and his family warmly welcomed me to their home and treated me as family. I loved my stay in their stone room. The rooms and shared bathroom are VERY clean. Ethem and his family will get you anything you like.
The reviews about the restaurant are correct- the food was delicious, I ate there every night. I tried everything on the menu. I love to cook and asked if his wife would give me a class. She was so sweet and taught me how to make the kabobs in clay pots and her fantastic acili sauce! If you are looking to experience life with a Turkish family then, I highly recommend staying at Ocak Guesthouse. I enjoyed it, and stayed 2 days longer than I had booked!
