Taskonaklar Hotel in Cappadocia Turkey REVIEW
Taskonaklar Hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey
Taskonaklar Hotel – that is a mouthful, trying saying that three times fast! 🙂
Taskonaklar mean stone mansions.
Tas = stone
Konak = mansion
lar = suffix making word plural
We had the opportunity to visit the lovely Takonaklar hotel during our family’s visit to Uchisar in the Cappadocia area of Turkey and as the name suggests it is made out of the local stone. For generations people have lived in the caves in this area but over time families moved away. Hotels like this one grew out of those caves, adding on to what was there and creating truly amazing spaces for holidays and relaxing get aways. The old and new blends together for an artistic flair.
Aren’t these old doors amazing?
The rooms in this hotel are all unique – each one using the existing cave dwellings as the basis of the space. From the smallest to the most luxurious, this hotel is a wonderful place to rest and relax in the fantastic atmosphere of Cappadocia. My kids thought real cave rooms were the coolest thing ever and you know what? They really were cool and in the literal sense of the word, too! The rooms dug into the mountains were wonderfully cool – Mother’s Nature’s air conditioner!
Have a dip in the private hot tub if you choose the most luxurious suite overlooking the Pigeon Valley. Can’t you imagine relaxing with this view? Read more about Pigeon Valley here.
Sit and relax with your morning cup of Turkish tea. Even the kids are HUGE fans of the apple tea and love to sip in the cool morning air.
The Taskonaklar hotel has all the amenities you would expect from a wonderful hotel – beautiful rooms, lovely views, TV, internet, buffet breakfast and on demand lunch and dinner. We were treated to lunch in exchange for this post introducing this lovely hotel to you guys!
