Kayakapi Premium Caves - Cappadocia

Kayakapi Premium Caves - Cappadocia Rating: 4.5 Pearls

One of the top hotels in Urgup, Kayakapi Premium Caves is poised to grow from 32 to 55 rooms when its ambitious restoration project is completed. The hilltop property occupies 2,700 acres of a residential neighborhood composed of hundreds of long abandoned cave homes and historical buildings. A full spa, outdoor pool, and two restaurants fill the unique stone interiors and gorgeous grounds, from which guests can take in stunning views of the town's terra-cotta rooftops stretching into the distance.
Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah

Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This opulent 115-room luxury hotel in Beyoglu is a historic icon dating back to 1895. From the ornate lobby with marble tile floors, to the elegant afternoon tea, to the live piano music, to the (working!) original wrought-iron elevator, everything about Pera Palace evokes the bygone days when posh Europeans traveled to Istanbul on the Orient Express. Rooms are classic and sophisticated, and some have Bosphorus views. Features include a spa with lovely hammam and indoor pool, several upscale dining venues, and an extensive breakfast buffet. To top it off, rates are often cheaper than at some of the city's other luxury hotels, making this a great value.
Ciragan Palace Kempinski

Ciragan Palace Kempinski Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Formerly the palace of an Ottoman Sultan, the Ciragan Palace Kempinski is the grand dame of Istanbul. It wows guests at every turn, from the sprawling, manicured grounds, to the heated infinity pool right on the Bosphorus, to the refined suites. The dining options are extensive and exceptional; the spa is lovely; and the meeting space housed in the original palace building makes an ornate setting for a business function or wedding. It's arguably the city's top luxury option, but it's far from the popular tourist sights in Sultanahmet.
Fresco Cave Suites & Mansions

Fresco Cave Suites & Mansions Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Dating from the 18th century, the Fresco is a collection of restored mansions that served as opulent residences during the Ottoman period. Some rooms are traditional and brightly decorated with original frescoes, but with three stories and no elevator, some travelers may find that it’s a hassle to reach a few of them. Most of the rooms however are true cave rooms, hewn from the rock deeper within the buildings. And, unlike many others in the area, they're air-conditioned.
MDC Hotel

MDC Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The MDC Hotel is an upscale, typical Cappadocia-style property set on a hillside overlooking Urgup town. The location offers some lovely views of the area, though is also a bit of a hike to and from town center (though free drop-offs are available). Its cave rooms are nicely finished and their spacious, marble bathrooms are a real highlight -- all have under-floor heating and whirlpool tubs. The lack of pool or spa facilities is a shame, so if this is an issue check out the Kayakapi Premium Caves -- it's a little pricier but offers the full Turkish Baths experience.
Anatolian Houses

Anatolian Houses Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Anatolian Houses is an upscale, traditionally-styled complex with 33 suites carved from ancient stone caves located in the center of Göreme town. The original architecture has been superbly maintained as has its wonderfully historic ambience, though with all the modern comforts you'd expect from a hotel of this caliber. The Roman spa is certainly impressive and the wine fountain is sure to appeal to many. But it's far from the cheapest option around, a few rooms are subpar, and service can be inconsistent. It's still certainly a contender for one of the finest hotels in town, though -- and rates are far from exorbitant.
Argos In Cappadocia

Argos In Cappadocia Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The sprawling hillside property made up of six stone buildings (and the caves beneath them) has stunning views of Pigeon Valley from its many terraces and courtyards, where guests can enjoy wine from the hotel's immense cellar. Some of the rooms also have terrific views, while others lack natural light, but they all combine a unique cave-like design with Turkish decor and modern amenities. Wi-Fi and an excellent breakfast are included, and the property features an music hall (once a monastery) with wonderful acoustics. The Anatolian Houses has less spectacular cave rooms, but travelers interested in a Goreme location and a spa may prefer that venue.
Traveller's Cave Hotel

Traveller's Cave Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 21-room Traveller's Cave Hotel is one of the more smartly presented properties in Göreme, both inside and out, while retaining plenty of rustic charm. It's not a family-run hotel, so service tends more toward the professional than the personal touch, but staff are still on hand to help organize anything from balloon rides to airport transfers. Rooms are also nicely finished (some have fireplaces and whirlpool tubs), while the spacious, plush, panoramic terrace is a real highlight. The location up a steep hill means it won't be ideal for those with mobility concerns, but all things considered, rates are more than reasonable.
