Spacious Suites/Rooms

The interesting landscaped hotel cave rooms are carved on different levels of the small hill. The rooms were super cool in the daytime and cozy in the cold nights. There was no need for air conditioners or fans, as they had proper ventilation ducts.
Our family cave suite had a master bedroom, small sitting space and another small room for the kids with their separate bathroom. The suite was beautifully lit and decorated with traditional artifacts and rugs.

Delicious Food from Onsite Restaurant

Luckily food at their rooftop restaurant was flavorsome, convenient and affordable. The menu was majorly Turkish, however, they had some kinds of pasta and soups too which the kids loved.

Dolma- Luckily I had the chance to try this delicious Halal Dolma (stuffed grape leaves) here.

Calming Ambiance

The peaceful space had a unique feeling of tranquility in the air. Although the hotel was filled with numerous guests, we did not face any interruption throughout our stay.

Humble Staff

Staff was very welcoming and friendly with kids (the best part ever). The receptionist arranged our tours and dining each day. Moreover, they even offered to babysit for free while we went for our hot air balloon tour, adding a cherry on top of our stay.

Location of Dere Suites Cappadocia

Dere suites lie in the small town of Urgup, just 15mins away from Goreme and Avanos. 1-hour scenic drive from the airport to the hotel did not let us get bored at all. The hotel arranged our airport shuttle which cost around 15 euros per person- fair enough as compared to a private taxi.

Our stay was quite comfortable and smooth.
