The Museum Hotel located in Turkey’s scenic Cappadocia region has now been listed among the top 50 hotels in the world, the American magazine Robb Report announced on Monday.
The hotel, which is the only one from Turkey to be included in the list, found its place among several of the best hotels in the world.
Built in ancient ruins and caves, the “museum” approved by Relais & Chateaux contains ancient monuments from the Hittite, Roman, Seljuk and Ottoman periods, all of which are registered by the Nevsehir Museum.
The magazine said that none of the 34 rooms on the site are the same, including the “Harem Cave” or the “Divine Suite,” which has the best views in the area.
Located in Uchisar at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Cappadocia in the central Anatolia region of Nevsehir, the Museum Hotel opened in 2003.
“The bigger and better rooms include large indoor swimming pools,” says Jonathan Alder, one of 21 travel experts endorsed by the Robb Report.
“The breakfast is one of the best I’ve ever had in my life, and the dinner is so good that you don’t want to think about another restaurant. They have their own winery, which makes the whole experience amazing,” said Alder.
Tolga Tosun, the hotel’s general manager, said: “At the Museum Hotel, we always prioritize our mission of providing the highest level of service to our guests.”
“Being featured on such a prestigious list is a testament to our team’s dedicated work and hard work,” Tosun said.
Cappadocia is famous for its valleys, hills and ridges, its fantastic cones, mushroom-shaped monuments and chimneys, amazing underground cities, rock-hewn houses and rock-hewn churches used by the early Christians.
This rocky area was formed by natural processes over millions of years, wind and rain destroying ash and soft lava.
