Argos in Cappadocia Hotel

Argos in Cappadocia is a hotel built into the hillside in Uçhisar, the highest town in Cappadocia. Its 53 rooms (with 6 suites called “mansions”) enjoy panoramic eastern views over the Cappadocian countryside as they cascade down the slope, ending in vineyard terraces (the grapes are served in the restaurant).

This is no simple troglodyte dwelling. The guest rooms and suites are spacious, and decorated with a fine sense of chic modern designintegrated with the spirit of Uçhisar and its old cave houses.

The Argos suites are really small apartments with flowered terraces, panoramic views, fireplaces and, in four of them, private swimming poolshidden in the rock.

Of course, every room and suite has all the comforts: private bathroom, minibar, coffee- and tea-making facilities, iPod docks, etc.

The Argos’s restaurant serves breakfast (included), lunch and dinner daily, with both open-air and inside dining areas enjoying those spectacular panoramic views.

The views everywhere in the hotel are exceptional, looking east across the Cappadocian countryside toward Göreme and Ürgüp, but also up Dove Valley(Güvercin Vadisi) with its dovecotes carved into the volcanic rockface.

Some rooms and suites are appropriate for those with restricted mobility (bad knees, etc.), others—because the hotel is built into the hillside, like a village—require climbing stairs.
