Fantastic adventure living in a cave for a few nights. Rustic yet luxury
Be prepared to walk up and down to access anything in the town. This hotel is unlike any other we have ever stayed in.

This is truly a unique experience. The caves have been made to provide the necessary luxuries, but the story behind this location is remarkable. Get here and experience this wild and rewarding historical site...we loved every minute!
A truly super place, was only a shame i could only stay one night. Room was fantastic and very well appointed. Well worth a visit for a unique experience. No restaurant at the hotel but several within a short walking distance. Parking if you drive...More
My wife and I spent two nights here that we will never forget. The staff greeted us warmly and quickly led us to our room. They spoke excellent English and we had absolutely no trouble communicating. The room was simply incredible; we had a nice...More

Lighting is kept deliberately low to be as close as possible to original. There are LED lights as well. I would't really say lighting can be much of an issue. Baths are also modern in spite of their (beautiful) rural appearance. Ours was equipped with a spray attachment. January will be probably pretty cold. Just make sure to bring something warm with you...and enjoy this wonderful leap in the past
