You can reach Direkli Cave through a long natural tunnel. Locals always referred to this room as Direkli (pole) Cave, and hence the name was kept.

You will be fascinated by the 150-year-old tent decorations, the copper plates, and embroideries. On the chaises longues in the front of the room you can enjoy the magnificent sunset of Cappadocia
Located at the end of a half-open cave tunnel, Safir Cave looks onto our Garden of Eden at its front.

Cappadocia is famous for its pigeons, as well as for its beautiful horses, and therefore nearly all the valleys have dovecotes (güvercinlik). This room contains one of the oldest and biggest dovecotes in all of Uçhisar. During the meticulous renovation, all the original details were left intact. Although this room is a bit smaller compared to some other rooms in the hotel, the exciting tunnel access and the magnificent view of Cappadocia makes this a worthwhile choice.
The entrance of the room features large bellows. These belonged to ‘Uncle’ Hasan, a former owner of this house. Uncle Hasan used to sharpen iron pieces in the fire he lit with the help of the bellows on the rock next to the house, and, in fact, earned money by doing so. The window of the room opens onto the turtle garden. During summer, colorful roses, and in winter white snow surround you. There are also very special old carpets, tent decorations, and ceramic works of art in the room.
This room was formerly a kitchen, with the family who used to live here using the room not only as a kitchen but also for heating. They also pressed grapes to obtain grape juice and boiled the juice on the fire to produce molasses. In this multi-purpose kitchen there was a tandir (underground oven), the şırahane grape pressing apparatus, and a weaving loom. During the restoration, we had to cover the weaving loom area, but the tandir and the press have been kept in their original places.

The spinning wheel in the room belonged to the old landlord.
Tafana means “tandoor room,” from which this suite takes its name. It was carefully renovated, being sure to preserve the underground tandir (tandoor) oven and chimney.

The room is connected to an escape tunnel, which thus gives the name.

The antiques in the room are priceless.
The local people have always referred to the town of Uçhisar as ‘Ucasar,’ and so we gave the name to this room. The double story was originally used as a duplex house by the owner: the upper floor was used as living space, while the ground floor was used as a storage area for grapes and other types of food. Nothing was altered during the renovation, so as you experience the breathtaking view of Cappadocia from this room decorated with priceless antiques, you will feel part of the history of the room.

This room was a shepherd’s home and stable in the past, and thus we named it to reflect that. Next to the suite’s entrance is an old shepherd’s cloak.

The area where the shepherd lived is still present, now turned into a living room. You will understand how much he liked to enjoy life when you enter the room.
Two fairy chimneys located right across from each other are known as Çatalkaya by the locals. Right in front of this room sits one of the Çatalkaya and thus we named the room after it.

Enjoying the Jacuzzi and gazing out at the scenery, and spending time in front of the fireplace in cold weather are some of the things you’ll want to do in this room.
