Cappadocia is an amazing place formed millions of years ago from volcanic eruptions. The unique geological formations of the soft rock were sculpted by people to create homes. A concept that has been maintained and developed as present day sees a modern society developed within and around the caves and fairy chimneys of Cappadocia.
To stay at a cave hotel in Cappadocia is one of the top things to do and here is our list of the best places to stay in Cappadocia.
Located on the top of Aydinli Hill overlooking Goreme, Mirtha Caves is a romantic cave hotel that offers unobstructed views from its terraces. Their Ottoman decorated rooms are built within the soft rock formation. There’s several comfortable areas and decorated corners around the hotel’s terraces, which you can lounge on throughout the day and watch the balloons rise at 6am. Mirtha cave is the home to Cappadocia’s famous Instadog – @findiksteam, who is such an adorable dog.
We had the most magical morning of our time in Cappadocia at Koza Caves Hotel. We stayed in the King Suite Room, a room that had been carved out in a real fairy chimney with views from the window of Goreme. The main public terrace of Koza Caves is one of the most instagrammable spots in Cappadocia and is the highest terrace in Goreme, Staying at Koza Caves was such a dreamy experience.
Uchisar is the highest point in the area of Cappadocia where there are spectacular views and at The Rox Cappadocia, you can enjoy the panoramic views from their rooftop. To stay at Rox Cappadocia is to stay in a real cave as the bedrooms are hollowed out from stone. The hotel terrace that has beautiful outdoor seating and a wicker chair that you can nestle in at sunrise as you watch the hot air balloons rise over Guvercinlik Valley.
We didn’t stay at the Museum Hotel Cappadocia, so we can’t give you a review. However, we did go and have dinner there, which is one of the best meals we had in Cappadocia. Their heated pool is stunning and the balloons float by in the early morning. The Museum Hotel is also award-winning. So, we think we can be honest and say we that while we haven’t experienced the hotel as guests, we can safely include it on our list as one of the best places to stay in Cappadocia.
