The Hotel is beautiful. A little out of the way from the main towns but worth the slightly longer drive. Staff were fantastic. Friendly, attentive and courteous. The Manager upgraded us to The Executive Suite which was stunning. We ate dinner one night at the Hotel, the food and service was great. Highly recommend this Hotel, you wont be disappointed!

You won't believe your eyes when you step inside your cave room. It actually has a small and very pretty pool too !

Its a very different experience to stay in this kind of a cave! When my travel company mentioned its going be a good stay, I did not expect this much. Its an amazing piece of architecture. Food was quite decent, however the approach roads and the nearby areas outside the hotel premises look haunted.

A 12th century Byzantine Christian church forms part of the Gamirasu, and until recently, part of the hotel was still used by Christian monks. Much care has been taken to blend the historic facades with the natural curves of the Cappadocian landscape to preserve its traditional style and appearance whilst providing you with the utmost in modern conveniences. The finish is stylish and the atmosphere inviting and romantic. Indeed, it is the perfect honeymoon destination, with many couples choosing the intimate cave suites for access to some of the most breathtaking and unforgettable scenery in the world.
