Yunak Evleri hotel (Urgup, Cappadocia) review
We stayed at the Yunak Evleri Hotel in Urgup, Cappadocia for a short break last summer and can whole heartedly recommend it. The hotel offers a selection of different cave rooms depending on your requirements, all decorated to a very high standard with high quality fixtures and fittings. We stayed in two different rooms both had a Jacuzzi, walk in shower, hardwood floors, heating, antique furniture, beautiful kilim rugs, CD player, CDs and a small collection of books about Turkish arts and culture in a selection of languages. Outside both rooms had a small terrace with table and chairs where you could relax and watch the sunset. The cave rooms are original 5th century dwellings that have been adapted. Reception is a beautiful 19th century Greek mansion that sits in the centre of the site with the cave rooms carved into surrounding valley side.
For breakfast they offer a buffet with a varied selection both continental and Turkish, all the staff where helpful, courteous and efficient. The hotel is only a ten minute walk from the town centre and is well located for a base from which to explore Cappadocia. The rooms were not cheap but this is a luxury hotel and the prices are on a par with other hotels offering similar standards in the area.
