Cappadocia is one of the top rated tourist destinations in the world with attractions for all ages and tastes. Since early 1980’s Turkey has been focusing heavily on tourism related investments. Cappadocia has been the central place for such investments. Therefore, there are plenty of hotels and facilities to accommodate guests with any need and/or budget.

Stay at Cave Hotels or ordinary Hotels in Cappadocia

Valleys, rock formations and caves form naturally, with some of those caves housing sprawling rooms, churches and even accommodation carved out by early Christians over the centuries. You may stay in an ordinary hotel or in one of the cave hotels of Cappadocia. These are entire hotels carved out of the landscape, letting you experience the true culture and beauty of the region.
