Tour the best boutique cave hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey (under $100 a night!)

Nov 16, 2022

Cappadocia, Turkey may not be at the top of your travel bucket list, but it should be! It’s a magical place for solo travel (and group travel) and is unlike anywhere I’ve been before.

Cappadocia is the collection of 5 main villages between Kayseri and Aksaray in Turkey. Aside from its incredible history — including stunning evidence of several early civilizations in one place (Hittites, Persians, Romans, Christians, Byzantines, Turks, and Ottomans) — Cappadocia’s dramatic, otherworldly landscape (more like moonscape tbh) is like nothing you’ve ever seen.

Luscious valleys overgrown with pistachios, asparagus, and blackberries wind around babbling rivers in micro-Mediterranean climate zones. Meanwhile, sprawling underground cities, like Derinkuyu and Kaymaklı, protected ancient civilizations from Alexander the Great’s invading armies and can still be toured today! Cappadocia is one of the world’s oldest wine growing regions, and Göreme National Park has infatuating fairy chimneys, dream-like volcanic rock cave formations that earned it the designation of UNESCO World Heritage site.

These landscapes actually inspired Tatooine, the desert planet on the Outer Rim that was home to Luke Skywalker.

But if you’ve heard of Cappadocia before, what you’ve seen is the hot air balloons. And what an amazing way to see the incredibly unique landscapes of Rose, Love, and Red Valleys!

So are you wondering where to stay in Cappadocia? Obviously inside of a CAVE!

My 5-star experience at Henna Hotel, the best boutique cave hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey

Henna Hotel is a boutique cave hotel with 400 year old caves renovated into spacious rooms and spa-like bathrooms.

It has panoramic views of the valley, volcano, village, and hot air balloons from a stunning rooftop terrace. There’s even a woodfired hot tub and a full Turkish breakfast included with your stay every morning!

Henna hotel is a 30 second walk from the front door down to the main part of Göreme village, so the proximity can’t be beat!
