We woke up as the bus pulled into Nevsihir, a town close to Ürgrüp, where we are staying. We took a dolmus from there to the Ürgrüp bus terminal. When we arrived, one d the tour bus gentlemen called and the owner of the cave hotel were staying in, Eren. She came to pick us up there. Her hotel is situated about a 10 minute walk outside the central …
... who carved out and decorated the insides. Over the years they became steadily bigger so now some are really impressive spaces. I think they would have had additional wooden structures as well, you could see in many places the notches for joists but obviously the wood has all gone.
After Zelve we moved to Goreme, the classic site with most of the best known churches. Unfortunately you are not allowed to photograph them so no pictures, you will just have ...

Then we went on another tour where we saw the rock houses above ground that where shaped like mushrooms. We then went to an open air museum where early christians came to live try to scape from the romans. There are some churches carved in the stone and ...
... a bearing on what was where. Andrew had slowly been getting Sarah used to the idea of hiring Quad bikes, and finally Sarah acquiesced! We also sat down and mapped out what we would be doing over the next few days, and booked the hot air balloon ride, as well as the whirling dervishes performance! We also decided to hire a car for a few of the days so we could go out to some of the underground cities, without having to go on a tour (we are so over tours!) After ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Serinn House Urgup
Found this hotel through the trip advisor reviews and we are so happy that we did. Just spent a weekend at Serinn House, with my significant other and had one of the most amazing experince of our lives. Cappadocia's incredible fairy chimneys, combined with such a perfect boutique hotel turned our holiday to a fairy weekend, Ms Eren was more than an owner..Starting the day (even at 5 am in the morning while going to baloon cruising) with her smile was an extradordinary personal touch of her excellent service. Location of Serinnhouse is great (just a Short stroll down hill to Urgup town), breakfast is sooooo good that (especially the freshly baked pies and breads) you still feel full at your lunch stop, rooms are very spacious and very modern. MUST DO'S: have a sunset wine at the terrace, listen to Eren's reccomendations about where to see and where to eat, baloon cruising, even on a diet taste the bread..So to sum it up, serinnhouse is a beautiful hotel with beautiful people (ahh! and a beautiful dog), welcoming in very aspect. I fully reccommend this hotel to trip advisors users.
First let me start off by saying that Cappadocia is an amazingly beautiful place to visit BUT it would not have been such a wonderful experience if it I stayed anywhere else. Eren, owner of Serinn House, made my trip a memorable experience.
I was in London on business and decided to visit Istanbul & Cappadocia for the weekend. Traveling alone and being a person of color is not always easy in Turkey but Eren made sure to make me feel welcome and ensured that I made the most of my stay.
The rooms are exactly as pictured on the website and even more lovely in person. The breakfast was delicious and fresh!
If you are looking for an adventure in Turkey and want a place that feels like home stay at Serinn, you won't regret it.
Cinq étoiles pour cet hôtel de cinq chambres
En compagnie de quelques amis, j'ai séjourné 3 nuits au Serinn, un hôtel (souterrain) de cinq chambres à Urgup. Au milieu des montagnes, il a une vue fabuleuse sur la vallée. Les chambres sont magnifiquement décorées, l'hôtel tout entier a été conçu et construit avec goût. Comme d'autres ont pu le dire, Erin, notre hôtesse, servait du vrai café (pas de Nescafé), des tartes et gâteaux faits maison ainsi que des oeufs chaque matin. Nulle part ailleurs nous n'avons eu ça en Turquie. Suivez ses conseils quant aux endroits où manger.
Cinco estrellas para un hotel de cinco habitaciones
Me alojé por tres noches en el Serinn, un hotel (cueva) en Urgup, junto con amigos. Estaba en las montañas y tenia una vista fabulosa del valle. Las habitaciones estaban hermosamente decoradas y el hotel estaba construido y decorado con buen gusto. Como dijeron otros, Erin, nuestra anfitriona, servía café de verdad (no nescafé), tartas y pasteles recién salidos del horno y huevos todas las mañanas para el desayuno. En ningún otro lugar de Turquía nos sirvieron eso. Sigue sus recomendaciones de lugares para comer.
Five stars for a five room hotel
Together with friends, I stayed for 3 nights in the Serinn, a five room (cave) hotel in Urgup. In the hills, it had a fabulous view of the valley. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the entire hotel was tastefully designed and constructed. As others have said, Erin, our hostess served real coffee (not Nescafe), and freshly baked pies & cakes, and eggs for breakfast each morning. Nowhere else did we get that in Turkey. Take her advice about places to eat.

Serinn House in Urgup (cappadocia) Turkey
Just returned from spending 3 nights at the beautiful and very comfortable Serinn House, a small cave hotel overlooking Urgup.
Hostess Erin is gracious, knowledgeable, and more than willing to help with reserving theatre tickets, etc.
Breakfasts on the terrace with a long view into the distant landscape are delightful and included something freshly baked that morning.
Rooms are spacious, very modern, clean, and most important for someone over 50, have extremely comfortable beds.
Without a doubt, this was the most comfortable and beautiful lodging over the course of 2 weeks spent in Istanbul, Bursa, Konya and Cappadocia.
My two friends and I stayed at Serinn for 3 nights recently and it was just amazing. Erin, the inn keeper, and her assistant Serdar really made us feel at home. She also has a great dog that we feel in love with! The rooms are clean and beautiful with a "hip" retro design. It was certainly the most stylish hotel we stayed in during our 2 week vacation. Erin also served the best breakfast we had in Turkey! Along with the usual cheeses, olives and tomatoes she also served eggs and a homemade cobbler or biscuits every morning. All served on the terrace which has incredible views of the valley. The hotel is also WiFi equipped at no extra charge.
Look no further than Serinn!
We stayed at Serinn for two nights and wished we would've stayed for 2 weeks! Eren, the owner and hostess, is lovely and thoughtful and makes you instantly feel welcome. The rooms are incredible--stylish furnishings that still feel cozy. We stayed in one of the cave rooms and loved it, but all of the rooms looked great.
Breakfast was amazing with everything down to the marmalde being home-made. The view from the breakfast terrace captures Cappadocia. We highly recommend this guest house!
Ne cherchez pas plus loin que le Serinn!
Nous avons passé deux nuits au Serinn et nous aurions aimés y rester deux semaines! Erin, l'hôtesse et propriétaire, est adorable et prévenante. Elle vous fait immédiatement vous sentir comme chez vous. Les chambres sont incroyables: ameublement élégant et qui pourtant donne une impression d'intimité. Nous étions dans l'une des chambres souterraines et avons adoré, mais toutes les chambres sont belles.
Le petit déjeuner est extraordinaire avec tout ce qu'il faut jusqu'à la marmelade faite maison. De la terrasse du petit déjeuner, la vue embrasse la Cappadoce. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison d'hôtes.
