For more than a thousand years, people have made their homes in the soft rock of Cappadocia.
Our hotel is located within the historical region of Cappadocia on a quiet, winding street over the village of Goreme. An easy 5 minute walk to the center of the village and easy access on foot to many local valleys. Perched above Goreme, our hotel offers views over the ancient stone village and the beautiful valleys in the background. From the hotel you can see many fairy chimneys (rock formations) and the beautiful colors of Cappadocia that change with the seasons.
The area is a popular tourist destination, as it has many areas with unique geological, historic, and cultural features.
The most important towns and destinations in Cappadocia are Urgup, Goreme, Ihlara Valley, Selime, Guzelyurt, Uchisar, Avanos and Zelve. Among the underground cities worth seeing are Derinkuyu, Kaymakli, Gaziemir and Ozkanak. The best historic mansions and cave houses for tourist stays are in Urgup, Goreme, Guzelyurt and Uchisar.
Hot-air ballooning is very popular in Cappadocia and is available in Goreme.
We had a fantastic time at Divan Cave House! From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The rooms are absolutely stunning and look even better in real life.
Hanife and her staff were professional, friendly and extremely helpful. She arranged our hot air balloon ride with Butterfly Balloons which was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
Ali (who is very entertaining!) took us on a lovely complementary hike through Rose Valley. After an unfortunate mishap with a car rental company ("Hitchhikers" - don't support them!) Hanife helped us and we only paid half the price.
After we checked out we could also still, for the rest of the day, make use of the coffee and tea facilities as well as the wi-fi while we waited for our bus.
All and all a wonderful stay at Divan Cave House! Everything we expected and more!
We really enjoyed our stay. Hanife is beautiful, friendly and very helpful at suggesting activities. She was very accommodating whenever we had requests. She ordered bus tickets, set up a driver from the airport and set up a day tour. The room was clean and cozy. Only issue we had was a foul-smelling bathroom but I understand the sewage system in the town may be an issue for many places. It was manageable. Overall it was a great experience.
Great boutique hotel! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Free wifi and breakfast wasn't that bad either.
They also offer a free hike to caves. I'd do this over visiting the open air museum.
Will stay again.
Set in a beautiful and quiet part of Göreme. Hanife was really helpful and informative- she booked a horse riding tour for us which was a gorgeous way to see the sunset and explore some places we might not have seen on our short stopover. The room was lovely, so clean and welcoming and tranquil. We had dinner at the nearby Seten restaurant and received a surprise 10% discount because we were at Hanife and Ali's hotel! ( the food there was mind blowingly good). You won't be sorry you stayed.
We had a great 2-night, 3-day stay at Divan Cave House. We arrived early and left late, so Hanife allowed us to stash our bags in the main office while we toured the area. Breakfast on the terrace every morning was a great way to start the day, and the staff was very friendly. We stayed in the fairy chimney room, and were impressed with how a slab of rock had been carved into a functional hotel room! (The bathroom smells very "cavey" after you've showered, but if you are significantly bothered by this, maybe consider non-cave accommodation :))
Highly recommended if you visit the region.
I had a wonderful stay at the Divan Cave House. Not only was the room beautiful and comfortable and the breakfast delicious, but Hanife was a wonderful and gracious host. She helped me deal with a travel agency issue I was having, gave us suggestions for activities, and was all around extremely helpful! I would definitely recommend you stay at Divan!
A great place to stay. Hanife was great at helping us organise airport transfers, Hot Air Balloon rides and Cappadocia tours.
Our stay was lovely. Hanife and her staff were very helpful. We enjoyed the great recommendations that they made for us. Loved the place and loved the dried fruit at breakfast!
Hanife and Ali were absolutely amazing. The Divan Cave House was quaint, beautiful and in the perfect location. The rooms were charming, the breakfast was delicious and the terrace view was spectacular. Hanife and Ali went out of their way to make sure my trip was memorable. I highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to go back!
My husband and I stayed at Divan Cave House for 2 days/ 1 night. It was a great experience!!! Hanife is very sweet and helpful and speaks excellent English. I had spent a lot of time researching what I wanted to do in Cappadocia but Hanife was a great sounding board and gave me excellent advice on what we should/could do in our limited time. She helped us with the planning and booking of out Hot Air Balloon ride as well as the Green Tour. We highly recommend staying here! The staff is super nice and friendly, breakfast was great, and it was a short walk to the center of town (although quite hilly, but the entire area and all these hotels are like that)
