The 10 best hotels with a view in Cappadocia

A mysterious region of Anatolia, in the heart of Turkey, Cappadocia fascinates locals and visitors alike. For a long weekend or more than a week, this semi-arid region boasts extraordinary panoramas, seemingly straight out of a fairytale. From the valley of Devrent (nicknamed the Valley of Imagination) to Kayseri, via the Valley of Love and its fairy chimneys, travellers will not have enough eyes to admire all the beauty of this unique place in the world.

Known in part for its troglodyte dwellings, Cappadocia is also full of hotels, set up for the well-being of tourists from all over the world. But instead of plunging into these incredible underground chambers, many travellers opt for accommodation with a view of the region's emblematic monuments and most beautiful valleys - enough to fill their eyes as soon as they wake up!

Located in the village of Guzelyurt, a 30-minute drive from the troglodyte city of Derinkuyu, theAkinci Konagi Hotel immerses guests in Turkish history and traditions.

From the bedrooms to the communal areas, most of the building has been carved out of the volcanic rock. This troglodyte hotel, typical of the region, is nonetheless warm and welcoming. Our favourite feature? The huge terrace overlooking the village and offering a breathtaking view of Mount Hasan: the ideal place to enjoy a hot tea at sunset.
