CHECK AVAILABILITY

The Ufuk Hotel Pension offers affordable 3 star accommodation in Göreme, Cappodoccia, a small village famous for the large tufa cliffs whose caves once housed ancient dwellings and churches. The inn is located on the road towards the Open Air Museum, a complex of painted cave churches carved out by Orthodox monks, and is only a 3-minute walk from the center of the Göreme.

Backing into a tufa stone cliff, the Ufuk Hotel Pension looks out over Göreme, towards Cavusin and Avanos. It is the ideal retreat for vacationers in search of authentic Cappadoccian cave dwellings, as 4 of this Göreme inn's guestrooms are natural caves carved into the cliff face. (Furthermore, the Ufuk Hotel Pension's owner, Ismail Bey, was born in a cave and describes himself as a modern cave man. He delights in introducing guests to Turkish culture, be it a quick language lesson or a game of backgammon.)

Guests can go on a walk around the Open Air Museum (accompanied by Ismail's dog, Multu). The inn's restaurant offers guests a good meal, live Turkish music in the evenings and has a stunning view to boot. Complimentary wireless Internet access is also available. Pets (cats and dogs) are welcome.

The bedding was horrible, the bathrooms were worse. The staff were very pleasant and obliging, but the hotel was awful.

An amazing place to stay, all because Orhan and his family are incredibly helpful and welcoming, and will do anything to make your stay wonderful-- above and beyond what one would expect. They will happily discuss hiking tips and destinations for an hour, then will drop you off at the trailhead (for free!). I've never had such a warm and helpful treatment from even a 5 star place! Also gives you a nice feeling as part of a family in Turkey-- a great experience! The hotel itself is definitely a great backpacker destination-- it's clean, a great location, and a little rough around the edges-- those who are very picky would not be happy.But if you're looking for a welcoming place to stay, you can't get better than this!

The location is good, right in the middle of the heart of Goreme without being in the busy street. The room is absolutely tiny. They've put the tiny bathroom (and I mean tiny -- my 5'11 boyfriend could barely sit comfortably on the toilet or fit under the shower) in a raised platform of some sort, and we had issues with the water seeping out while someone's in the shower. Some guests would stay out too late and talk; it wouldn't have been an issue if we couldn't hear them and/or their phones. Wifi's good, but faster on the public areas. We would've wanted to drink the wines we brought along on their patio, but their sign said no to that.

Mr Orhan, the owner of Ufuk Hotel, is a wonderful host. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and provide us with services we needed such as finding tickets to events, reserving seats on the airport shuttle, etc. He informed us about what was available locally and even drove us to the Goreme Open Air museum and the Turkish night event in his car without expecting any compensation for doing so. The entrance to the hotel is very steep. Once we got up, we chose one of the rooms on the upper floor of the hotel, rather than the cave room on the lower floor, because the cave rooms did not have any windows. We found the rooms on our floor to be pokey and the bathroom was odd, at best, being built on a raised level with two steps to get in, a low door on which we constantly banged our heads, and on the whole very tight and hard to move around. The rooms were also not airconditioned, and it was quite unbearable during the day given that we were in Goreme during the month of July. The place is certainly friendly and being right next to town, it is well located. The relaxed setting of the entire place, with many couches and diwans, trees in the courtyard, swing on the porch etc. gave it a homey feel. The breakfast offered, which is included in the cost of the room, was substantial. This place might be comfortable for a young person or couple, but would certainly be a challenge for anyone middle aged or older.

Ufuk Hotel Pension is centrally located amidst the rocks of Goreme. Our cave room was very basic but worth the money we paid for. We love our stay here and will come again. Mr. Orhan, wife and Mr. Soner are all warm hearted people. Much recommended if you are not looking for luxury.

Ufuk is definitely THE most worthwhile hostel that we've stayed during our trip in Turkey. Its location is perfect with stunning and gorgeous natural surroundings and above all, the boss of Ufuk is a very kind and helpful man who is also an excellent cook. Do try to taste his home made honey! Amazing!

The best quality/price rate during our whole trip through Turkey. Excellent position, a few steps from the village center, a walking distance from Open Air Museum. Rooms are small (expecially the bathrooms) and simple, but comfortable. The staff is great!
