What is the nicest hotel you have ever stayed in?
Taşkonaklar Hotel in Uçhısar. Welcome to paradise.
In all of our travels over the years living in four countries and visiting well over 20, we have stayed in some holes-in-the-wall and in some laps-of-luxury.
As I think of the nice spots, the Taşkonaklar Boutique Hotel is towards the top of the list.
I first connected with Tolga Akarcalı, a Managing Partner, through Twitter and then in person at his hotel in Uçhısar overlooking Pigeon Valley. He related to me the story of how the hotel came about and their vision for serving visitors to Cappadocia.
My wife and I were able to spend a night at the Taşkonaklar and can say firsthand that you will not be disappointed if you choose these lodgings for your time in Cappadocia.
Let the pictures below tell the story…
Vaulted ceiling, spacious environment, and a bed with a premium mattress make you want to remain in the room your entire stay.
The expansive bathroom was wonderful with plenty of counter space (my wife said to mention this).
I could stand under a rain shower all day.
Pigeon Valley and Erciyes Volcano from right outside your front door. Many rooms have their own outdoor sitting area.
The included breakfast was delicious with a nice selection.
Eat breakfast (lunch and dinner are available but not included) while looking out over Cappadocia’s beautiful Pigeon Valley and beyond.
Uçhısar castle, the highest point in Central Cappadocia, is just a few hundred meters from the hotel.
But even with this you need to visit in person to capture the true picture of how nice the Taşkonaklar is. I have not mentioned the friendly staff, the optional services, the attention to details like comfy sheets with high thread counts, fireplace in the room for cold winter nights, and their emphasis on being eco-friendly.
Come to Cappadocia, stay at the Taşkonaklar, and let us know all about it by leaving a comment here.
And if after all of this, you still need convincing, here are two other travelers/bloggers who have written about the Taşkonaklar. Vagobond and Perfect Boutique Hotel.
