Mr Bora Özkök is something of a legend in Turkish travel lore, a man completely familiar with both Turkey and the USA who has brought together these two cultures through his personally guided tours for decades.
He has also restored a complex of cave dwellings into a superb collection of cave rooms and suites in Göreme Town: Cappadocia Cave Suites.
With his love of folklore, you can imagine that the decor of each suite incorporates folk and handicraft items, including many fascinating pieces that Mr Özkök may have come across during his travels throughout Turkey, on and off the beaten path.
Cappadocia Cave Suites
Gaferli Mahallesi, Ünlü Sokak No. 19,
Göreme, Nevşehir, Turkey
Centrally located and gorgeously remodeled, the Cappadocian Cave Hotel is one of the best. The 33 guest rooms and suites are arranged in the typical felicitous and charming chaos of Göreme Town, in and around fairy chimneys partway up the hill. (Read this about staying in a cave room.)
Sixteen of the accommodations are full-service suites with living room, kitchenette, jacuzzi, and Internet connection; some rooms have fine views, but all guests enjoy the valley views from sitting areas.
A swimming pool and health spa are available to guests as well as a poolside bar and complimentary breakfast.
