Cave hotels in Cappadocia are basically hotels that are carved on the volcanic rock of the area, also named as “fairy chimneys”. Most of these hotels are located in or around Göreme and Uçhisar. These are very similar to the cave hotels in Santorini (though the weather is completely different in these 2 areas).
Back in the day, Cappadocia’s residents had to break the rock to create these caves that were basically used to hide from outside enemies and intruders. It’s calculated that more than 15000 people used to live in that impressive network of caves for many months if needed. In my opinion, if you are visiting the area, then you have to stay in one of the cave hotels in Cappadocia to get the most out of your visit in the region. Most of the hotels on this list offer amazing cave suites and rooms that have been fully renovated and designed, along with exceptional service, food and views of the famous hot air balloons of Cappadocia.
