The view of balloons floating over Goreme is one of our all-time highlights. One tip is to get Ahmet to arrange a taxi to... More

I chose this hotel about the location; It´s located very high, near the top of the hill and the sunset point and the views from our balcony and the breakfast´s terrace where breathtaking! You can´t imagine the feeling to open your... More

As to hotel, there is a very wonderful platform, you can have a good view of whole town Goreme and sunset and balloon flighting. I heard from the Arif that there are 13 rooms.... More

Our apartment was no 4 - the Pasha suite and it was huge with fantastic views over Goreme and beyond. The lounge suite was very comfortable and homely - in our travels we... More
