When you hear that a hotel is billed as a "5-star hotel it is important to remember that this is not a US rating and you are not in the United States. The Dinler would not qualify as a 5 star in America, but in Cappadocia, I can certainly see where that rating is acceptable. The hotel was clean, the pool was FREEZING cold (in early September).
I got locked into my bathroom when the door handle broke off in my hand, but maintenance was there in a flash even though ti was after 10pm. They drilled and hammered and replaced the handle immediately.
If you are an experienced traveler you take your good attitude and create your own stories.
The staff was wonderful and my lack of Turkish (good morning and thank you) was not an issue.

There are some old Christian churches as well, although to be honest I had a lot of walking to do that day so didn't stick around when you can see something really impressive of this nature in Jordan.
It's hard to describe in words without ...
... and so did the adults).
We also visited the underground cave city of Derinkuyu. The region is full of these underground cities – there are perhaps forty of them that are known, although only a few can be visited – and they are extensive, built by the Hittites in Biblical times and housing up to 20,000 people. Derinkuyu is the largest; it extends eight stories below ground. Only a tenth of the complex is open to visitors but it took hours ...
... common room, no one knew, then as we went to leave, the old guy on the couch followed us out and went up to reception. Strange. But we got checked in, and went straight to our beds (which they had to make up while we waited, as it was so early) and got almost an hours snooze in before we had to get up again! According to our itinerary, we were being picked up from our hostel for a tour of Cappadocia, but when no one came, I asked a lady who was working, and in the very little English ...
