Travel Blogs from Urgup
Before I start writing about the next leg of our journey, I have to share what happened at the hotel restaurant in Antalya. When we entered we noticed that everyone was going to the buffet, but we just wanted something light so we sat at our table waiting for a waiter to come by. We finally flagged one down, who seemed really harassed, and when we …

At night, we went to dinner and to see a show of turkish music and dancing. We saw some guys in big skirts that just kind of twirl around called the dervish dancers. There where also belly dancers but it was late in I fell asleep.

... let out for lunch, we had kids coming up and saying that they would take our photo for money (not sure their parents would approve of this!) Escaping the tiny hoards we jumped back in the car and agreed to have lunch when we got to the next stop which was the Derinkuyu Underground City. This one is cited as being one of the best to view as people have the opportunity to go deeper underground than any of the others and that it is the biggest one found in the Cappadocia region. ...
13.9.2013 Andyaman (TR) Km: 26539 Cappadocia / Kappadokien
After the maintenance of the motorbike I'm doing a small tour of Cappadocia. Great area and it is worth to come here and to see the stone and rock formations.
This evening I watch to the cats and the dog of the owner of the hostel. When the dog sees a cat on the premises of the hostel, he sprints barking towards the cat. Because the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Yunak Evleri Urgup
I have to admit, when I looked at the reviews of this hotel I thought it would struggle to live up to the hype, however it did. We stayed for 4 nights in a cave suite with its own courtyard and were very impressed. The staff are so helpful, they even organised a cake for my birthday!! The breakfasts are wonderful, lovely jams and breads, the dinner was good, although not spectacular, and the check out bill process hurried and confusing (hence only 4 stars).
Everything is perfect in this Hotel.
Staff is so friendly..
I recommend to everybody to visit this hotel.
We stayed at the Yunak Evleri for 2 nights in July '06 and loved it. We are amused that the Lonely Planet guide is a bit dismissive of the place, so off base.
The best hotel in Urgup
Stayed at Yunak Evleri for 4 nights and I would highly recommend this hotel. Lovely rooms, very tasteful decor and excellant service. The nicest hotel in Urgup.
What a fabulous experience!
My husband and I loved this hotel! The rooms are beautiful and large, and the bathrooms are huge, clean, and have unbelievable water pressure in the showers. The proprietor of the hotel is extremely friendly and helpful, and the hotel is very quiet and peaceful. The breakfast (included in the room price) is tasty and fresh, and the available dinners are delicious and an exceptional value for $20. The hotel is well-located a short walk from downtown Urgup and very near a wine company that has a tasting room. You won't forget staying at this hotel--it's an experience not to be missed! We're definitely going back!
Unlike anywhere else!
Yunak Evleri is a fabulous base from which to explore Cappadocia. After seeing all the rock-cut villages and churches, you can retire to your very own rock-cut suite! It's quite a dramatic sight to round the bend up the hill and come upon this honeycombed cliff-turned-hotel. But you don't have to be a cave man to enjoy it - the rooms and suites are decked out with wood floors, Turkish carpets, kilims, etc. Some have their own fireplaces, and all have fabulous marble baths. And even in November when we stayed, it was perfectly warm in our room. The restaurant was delightful as well - a great place to dine if you don't feel like descending into downtown Urgup itself. We had just a wonderful time - I can't imagine a better place to stay to experience Cappadocia.
What an experience!
We found this hotel online, and my only complaint is that we did not have more time to enjoy it! We got a personal greeting, cup of tea, and a tour from the manager upon arrival. The room was superb - cool and comfortable even in the middle of summer. The view from our front step was of the whole town and at night it was just us, the crickets and the muzzein crying the call to prayer. And the bathrooms!! All gray marble with glass showers. I wanted to pack it in my suitcase and take it home. We'd return there anytime.
Luxurious, earthy, and peaceful, the Yunak Evleri Cave Hotel in Cappadocia is sublimly divine. It is listed in both the Hideaway report and 1000 places to see before you die for good reason.
A little gem!
This hotel is gorgeous! The location is stunning, in a magical landscape. The rooms are very luxurious, large and comfortable with amazing bathrooms . The hotel is beautifully decorated. Everything was spotlessly clean.
Diner and breakfast are served on a terrace with a fantastic view. Diner was delicious, much better than the food we had in Istanbul!
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
This hotel is really the perfect place for a fabulous stay in Cappadocia.
My husband and I had a deluxe room at this hotel and it was *stunning*. (See the website - our room really did look like the deluxe room in the photograph. ---yunak--- You feel an incredible sense of history when you enter the hotel and your room. The room was spotless and had both a bedroom and a separate seating area so that we could plan our day, write postcards, etc. (The bedroom had a nice stereo system so bring your CDs if you want music.) The bathroom was very large and had a fantastic shower. We had a lovely view from our balcony. At night, the stars were incredible. The room was extremely quiet. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
