History said, the city of Cappadocia formed millions years ago by volcanic eruptions.
That is why most buildings there are made from natural rocks, and surrounded by hills and valleys.
I was so excited when i know that we will stay in one of the cave hotel in Goreme, Cappadocia.
We were from Istanbul that time, so we need to take a 45-60 minutes flight from Ataturk Airport (Istanbul) to Nevsehir Airport (Goreme,Cappadocia) by Turkish Airlines.
Initially, we wanted to take public transport from Nevsehir airport to the Koza Cave hotel, but after we did our research, Goreme is not so public-transport friendly. the bus there only come every 30-45 minutes, and once you reached the bus station, you still need to drag your luggage up and down the hills to reach your cave hotel.
Finally we decided to take shuttle bus that managed by some transportation company *cant remember what company that we engaged*, it cost us about 15-20 EUR / trip if im not wrong. Just like every shuttle bus in all around the world, they will stop in a few places (hotels) . Luckily our hotel is the first stop. hehe.. it was quite a journey from the airport to the hotel. it took us about 50 minutes to reach Koza Cave Hotel.
The great thing about the van is.. they have a WIFI in it. hahaha *first-world problem!* haha. i was quite amazed when i saw a very big user ID and password that they paste on the van’s dashboard. really like this kind of van! hahaha.
Once we arrived in Koza Cave Hotel, It was scorching hot outside. it’s like the sun is just shine right above you. i thought it will be better inside. so, we quickly went in to the Lobby, which looks like a normal living room and did our check in.
I was surprised that the lobby doesn’t have any air-con, but have the cooling feeling, even though i still feel very hot and humid inside. what made me even more surprised is the have no air-con inside the room as well. i asked one of the hotel owner (it’s run by one friendly family), why there’s no air-con over their place? they said, because it’s cold at night and the rocks will give you the cooling feeling.
and you know what, when i touched the room walls (made from rocks).. it really is cold.. and i was shivering at night because it is too cold.. haha.. luckily they already provide us with a thick blanket to sleep in. haha..
*itu fenomenal aneh bngt menurut gw.. siang.nya puanas bngt udara di luar.. dan pas masuk cave.nya tuh jadi adem2 gimana gt. haha.. udah kyk udara di gurun pasir deh pokok.nyaa.. *
and all that i can say is please do stay at cave hotel when you are staying in Cappadocia.. it’s a very rare and great experience that you will be having. hehe.. especially for us who stayed in Asia i may say.
below are some pretty photos from Koza Cave Hotel.
