Though an avid travelled, this was my first trip post the pandemic and I was a little nervous at first. However Murat was so helpful and cooperative, I ended up having a wonderful trip.

Though an avid travelled, this was my first trip post the pandemic and I was a little nervous at first. However Murat was so helpful and cooperative, I ended up having a wonderful trip. There were 1-2 glitches that could have been avoided but Murat did his best to remedy the situation. The 2 guides I had in Istanbul and Cappadocia were wonderful - Ibrahim and Ramazan - very flexible and cooperative. Murat’s property in Cappadocia is a piece of heaven I would highly recommend. The logistics including PCR testing were very well taken care of. I always felt safe because Murat kept track personally.

I am glad I used him and Kimkim 👍🏽

I will probably use both again.

Hotel Review
Gül Konakları
Nevsehir

This is far from your regular hotel / B&B experience . You stay in either of 2 heritage properties that transport you to another world. The ambience is extremely well maintained by the owners and they spend a lot of time with you explaining the history of the location. Wonderful people! Cappadocia is a place from your dreams and it’s best experienced from a place like this, unless you want to experience staying at a rock / cave hotel.

Tips for future travelers

The rooms are very different from one another but all details are available online - so it’s best you look up and book a particular room before heading there.
