Safran Cave Hotel
Travel Blogs from Goreme
Tour Day. Our hotel recommended a local tour which was 8 hours long and was well worth the expense. First main stop was the Selime Cathedral which was basically a community cut into the hillside. What is not apparent from the outside is that the openings are accessed through internal tunnels. There are 2 types of rock. The top layer is called hard …

Family is very pleasant and go out of their way to assist. They made arrangements for both the balloon flight and a tour. Had dinner there one evening and it was excellent. Highly recommend if you want a local feel and not a big hotel.
