The hilltop Ürgüp Evi Cave Hotel, in the Esbelli district of Ürgüp, is a playful assemblage of terraces, guest rooms and public spaces that tumbles down the steep hillside and offers fine views of the Cappadocian countryside.
It's got all the choices:
— A grassy little lawn framed by ancient stone column drums, shaded by quince and apple trees, and dotted with colorful cushions, the perfect place for soaking up the warm Cappadocian sun.
— A riot of awnings offering various degrees of shade and sun over tables where coffee, tea, drinks and snacks are served.
— The cool, dusky depths of the cave salons away from the shock of the bright light and heat.
The cave guest rooms have all modern comforts, local handicraft decorations, nice sculptural touches, modern bathrooms, and facilities for making coffee and tea whenever you like.
It's quiet here, well above the noise of the town, at the edge of the Esbelli neighborhood.
It's a cliché, I know, but the staff at Ürgüp Evireally makes you feel at home. All is low-key, friendly, helpful and pleasant in a small-inn way.
