Our hotel made us sad. It's a Relais et Chateaux, so our expectations were high. The rooms are very, very dark. The only place I could plug in my curling iron'hair dryer was sitting on the edge of my bed -- not at a desk or in the bath. Insufficient plugs, lights and internet.

... cities from attacking Islamic armies. It's also home to some unique geological forces that carved valleys and bizarre rock formations throughout the region. Upon landing in Cappadocia we waited 1 hour for our shuttle bus (that's twice as long as our flight) to take us to our next destination, Arif Hotel. We were welcomed by the young hotel manager Ahmet with glasses of wine and a deadpan sense of humour. We lingered in the offlice drinking wine talking ...
