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.

... different tracks with virtually no sign posting, so it was pot luck as to which one to take. We would head up one to find a dead end and have to back track. Finally we passed some other hikers who gave us some basic directions to follow, but basically just said to follow this one path, and then “go up”! Mikey virtually had to pull me up a very steep rock face to get out of the valley! We were very relieved to see the road and civilisation, and with the light almost gone, ...
... t see as much of the unusual volcanic rock and mountain formations that are unique to this part of Turkey. We were glad that we were to have 2 nights at this hotel here so we would not keep having to unpack and repackage our cases. For the first time in Turkey the weather was overcast with slight rain, and the planned Hot Air Balloon flight over Cappadochia early the next morning was cancelled. So we decided to ...
Another full day of touring this amazing region with our guide, Mustafa. He is a wealth of knowledge and and clearly loves this region and it's history and cultural heritage. A few times. He even sings us some traditional songs and tells us funny Hodja stories. From Wikipedia - Nasreddin Hodja is considered a populist philosopher and wise man, remembered for his funny stories and anecdotes. He appears ...
... ways when the enemy was after them.
Kaan had warned us of the peasant women who sell dolls near the exit. It was amusing to hear them yelling and entreating us to buy their wares. People around here are much more conservative and they dress very traditionally - you feel like you have stepped back in time.
Yesterday we also passed through Konya, which is a fairly large city and more conservative. We are now in Anatolia which is further away ...
... a few more days to see Istanbul. Head off for our own walk, look at shops, lunch at the out door fish stalls along The Bosphorus. The current is strong and while we sit on the sea wall young Turks jump off and are swept away only to leap back out of the water further along. Large container ships do difficult right hand turns in the dangerous current of the Bosphorus. From the hotel balcony the call to prayer is inspiring. Each mosque issues the call and ...
