Traveller’s Rest Cave Pension Courtyard

Are you traveling to Cappadocia?  This pension is a fantastic place to drop your pack for a few days.  As in many Cappadocia accommodations, all the rooms are in caves.  This is part of the experience; just remember that “cave” by definition means damp and cool, so bring your warm nighties to snuggle up in.

Traveller’s Pension is surrounded by cave hotels, which are all a little snazzier and a lot pricier.  As you walk through the stone entryway, you are greeted with a yell from above, then Yasar or one of the other helpful folks will welcome you and start making you feel right at home, first with a cup of çay, then a sit-down to help you plan your time in the area.

What I like:

Price: a good value, which includes breakfast and clean sheets that fit the bed (always a plus).

Breakfast: I like the standard Turkish breakfast, but it does get monotonous.  I recommend the French Toast – different than anything I’ve ever had, and good.

You can make reservations online (here) and not have to go through a third party.

They can set up anything for you, activities, tours, and transportation- one-stop shopping.
They serve beer and are friendly hosts.

Note:  If you go to their website, you’ll notice they have two accommodations, the hotel and the pension.   If you are looking for more comfort, even a fireplace and sitting area in your personal cave, then you will want to reserve the hotel.  I’ve stayed there, too, and it is luxurious.

  1. Unbelievable place… and I’m still aching to get there some day. It must feel surreal.
    I think most people would say “it’s a bit like in Star Wars”, but I think it’s even better 🙂

    1. Hunter, Cappadocia is on my list of all time favorites…someplace I go back to over and over again, because it’s so beautiful and the people are amazing!
