Why so darn good? "It's not often you can stay in a small family pension at such a good price in the ever-popular area of Cappadocia in Central Turkey. The fact that this hotel is also a cave dating back more than one thousand years and restored by the friendly owners' bare hands, and here you can eat a traditional meal cooked in a clay oven from the ground, just sets this place apart from any other!"

Location: "Ortahisar is the second-cousin of the popular Goreme town in Cappadocia, Turkey. It has a beautiful old rock castle in the centre of the town, and brings with it the traditional style of a Turkish village without the tourists!"

Rooms: "There are four rooms in this little guesthouse.... a couple of stone rooms chisseled by hand, but decorated with a mix of modern and authentic furniture, and also a couple of cave rooms! Siggy, the owner, is still chisseling away at the bigger caves below the house, turning these 1000 year old stables into a family room (or hostel - he's not sure yet!)."

Food: "What can I say about the food. Siggy and Lucy take great pride in their food and you won't be disappointed."

Vibe: "Between the terrace with clay oven and the garden overgrown with delicious grapes, or the flowers and cave rooms... this place has the vibe of the middle ages (in a good way) with plenty of elegance."

Keep In Mind: "It is not for large groups as it's only a few rooms (that's a good thing!)."
