to Uchisar Castle and has beautiful rooftop views. The owner does a great job of decorating the rooftop and

farther away from Goreme where the balloons take off, the balloons are quite tiny but the view is still insane.
It was absolutely amazing and magical. The breakfast was truly special and definitely the best breakfast I have
tried in Turkey. There is no surprise that the overall rating of this hotel is excellent. I highly recommend this

be intimate, yet large enough to offer you some privacy.
