Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Argos in Cappadocia sits high the hills of Uchisar, one of Cappadocia’s oldest villages.

Rooms at Argos in Cappadocia

The rooms and suites are spread across seven mansions, connected by underground tunnels. Stone walls, arches, cosy fireplaces and antique Turkish rugs are just a few of their special touches, alongside Nespresso coffee machines, Bose sound systems and mini-bars, as well as deluxe bathrooms with Molton Brown toiletries. Many have a private terrace or garden: opt for a suite spread over two levels with your own cave pool to sink into.

Food & Drink

If you’re in search of a hearty breakfast with a view to swoon over, the hotel’s Seki restaurant is where to make for. Devour fresh fruit, homemade breads and creamy Turkish cheese on the terrace or under the stone arches, and enjoy dishes made with fresh produce harvested from the gardens and nearby slopes. Dinner is just as exquisite, with scrumptious Turkish cuisine perfectly complemented by a glass of the house red, Kalecik Karasi. The award-winning wine cellar stocks an impressive range of handpicked wines, and the bar serves a wide variety of drinks.

Learn the secrets of local recipes on a cooking class, and take a piece of Cappadocia home with you.


Head to the atmospheric spa, which has a Turkish bath and a massage room, for some blissful relaxation alongside gorgeous valley views, or unwind with a yoga or meditation session.

While away an afternoon in the lounge or by the pool with a cocktail: bathed in sunlight, this is a prime spot for admiring sweeping views of Mount Erciyes and across Cappadocia. Have a sunrise breakfast here while watching the hot air balloons take to the skies.

Activities at Argos in Cappadocia

The hotel has its own atmospheric chapel where you can enjoy Sufi, classical and jazz concerts. Around the village, you’ll find Cappadocia’s highest point at Uchisar’s natural rock citadel, offering a truly special panorama of the area. Further afield, marvel at the Byzantine frescoes in the Goreme Open Air Museum, or venture through the subterranean cities of Kaymakli and Derinkuyu.

Explore these epic landscapes on foot, bike, horse or car, from jeep safaris to moonlight walks. Meanwhile, if you’ve ever dreamt of soaring to the skies in a hot air balloon, Cappadocia is the place to do it – and you can enjoy private flights. Wake at the crack of dawn to drink in unforgettable vistas of the mountains, cave villages and fairy chimneys at sunrise, not to mention the kaleidoscope of balloons punctuating the azure sky.
