The hotel is well located, about a 5 min walk from the city center, where there are the all restaurants and shops. We arrived late at night with a warm welcome from the owner of the hotel, who took the time to serve us tea and explain all about the tours we booked from the hotel. We stayed at the...

Great location, close to everything, and Kadir can organise tours, balloon rides and pretty much everything you need. Rooms are adequate and warm for the below zero...

This is my last of 4 nights at Elif Star Hotel and it has been great! We were greeted after our overnight bus with a free cup of tea. Our double room is spacious and beautiful, but a tad cold. This is by far the nicest double room I've stayed in on my backpacking trip. The bathroom is large with...

We stayed here around early Nov’15, we came by Cappadocia by bus and reached the place ~6.30am, we didn’t have any line there, so we walked to the hotel (which is nearby the bus station). Kadir actually offered to fetch us from the bus station (we found out later he did fetch some of his guest from the bus station)....

Nothing but great things to say about Elif Star and Kadir the owner. Always friendly and helpful, Kadir also runs tours which he does a wonderful job at. Great information on all our stops and easy to talk with. The breakfasts were great and rooms clean. Great price on the balloon ride and tour which I highly recommend. Thank you...

Leaving today is so hard this place and the tours they provide are beyond exceptional. My partner and I opted for the balloon and natural & cultural wonders tour which were both sensational. It was possibly the most beautiful day ever and Kadir the host and tour guide was everything you can ask for in a host!

A lot of interesting historical information given about the region by our guide Kadir.There is a lot more to this place than you might expect. The balloon flight is also a must do.
