I always dreamed about visiting Cappadocia, in Turkey, and to find the perfect hotel was my number one mission. I have been to many hotels and I want to say that it was a blessing to have come across Azure Cave Suites. The way we were treated was out of this world amazing. The owner and staff were the kindest people, taking care of every single detail – it truly made us feel at home. The hotel is on the top of a hill right by the Çavusin Castle – the views were astonishing and so peaceful. Azure Cave Suites is 10 minutes away from Goreme, the main tourist center in Cappadocia.
Azure Cave Suites is located in Çavusin, and you have 2 airport choices to fly to/from. You can fly to Erkilet International Airport in Kayseri city, which is about an hour away from the hotel, or to Nevsehir Kapadokya Airport in Nevsehir city, which is about 40 minutes from the hotel. Usually a taxi from Kayseri to Azure is around 200 Turkish Lira (around USD $50). Once you get to the airport make sure you confirm with the taxi driver that the rate is 200TL, otherwise they will use the meter and it can be much more expensive than that. Also, I recommend having cash on you, If you only have credit card, make sure to confirm with the taxi driver before starting your ride. You can also use the public or private transfer from the airport to the hotel, and the concierge at Azure can book that for you. For the public transfer you pay 25TL (USD $6.50) per person and the private transfer from Kayseri is 200TL (USD $50) for 1 to 4 people/ from Nevsehir 150TL (USD $38) for 1 to 4 people.
Our first night, we stayed at the Superior Cave Suite #1. I was really impressed; like a child checking every single corner and details, touching the walls and ceiling, mesmerized! These cave rooms are 700 years old. Super clean and very cozy. The beds were very comfortable as well. The Superior Cave has a stone framed king size bed, a little desk area, rain shower and a large jacuzzi. The second night, we stayed at the Azure Honeymoon Suite #11. So spacious, also a king size bed, an amazing extra-large jacuzzi, rain shower, Turkish bath. The Azure Honeymoon suite has its own private balcony and from there you can watch the sunrise, see the balloons floating around, and also see the beautiful sunset. Also, from the jacuzzi you can see outside, but it’s very private since the doors are mirrored on the outside. All the rooms are equipped with toiletries, mini bar, safe, heat, tv and I also believe they all have a jacuzzi, if not all, definitely most of the rooms.
Azure Cave Suites has a complimentary beverage and snack bar open from 08:30am to 10:00pm. Anytime you feel like snacking, there are some delicious pastries, cakes, tea, turkish and regular coffee waiting for you. Also, I was impressed with their breakfast, it’s a variety of yummyness that you can order from their menu. Azure Cave Suites doesn’t have its own restaurant, but it doesn’t matter because If you want to eat lunch or dinner at the hotel, they give you menus from a couple of restaurants and they can order food for you. There are also a couple of restaurants just down the street from the hotel that you can walk to.
Right down the street from Azure is the Çavusin Castle; a sacred historical place, you can see the remains of the Church of St. John the Baptist inside of the Castle. It’s free and oh, so beautiful! If you are interested in doing the hot air balloon ride, Azure can book it for you, make sure to let them know in advance. Also If you don’t feel like enjoying the ride, you can watch the balloons floating around the hotel’s Terrace, get ready to wake up early. The balloon ride starts at sunrise. There are many touristic things to do in Cappadocia and Azure can help you book it all. Their concierge is open 24 hours and they are very kind to show you all the tours that works better for you. They also offer different promotions throughout the year, such as private breakfast at rooftop, honeymoon packages, etc.

Also, don’t forget that amazing jacuzzi and some “me” time with a nice glass of Turkish wine; which btw is delicious!
Whenever you go to Azure Cave Suites give them all a big hug for me.
