Hotel Overview


In the village of Uchisar, with breathtaking views of Cappadocia’s lunar landscape.

Rooms at Museum Hotel

Each of the 30 rooms has something unique to offer, given the extensive collection of antique tapestries, objets d’art and furniture punctuating authentic stone walls throughout. Most rooms have lovely views, and if not guests are compensated with complimentary wine. A real treasure is the Sultan’s Cave, spread out into two caves with its own private tunnel entrance.

Food and facilities

The cuisine at the Museum Hotel is as unique as its antique collection. At Lil’a Restaurant, guests are served traditional Cappadocian dishes which cannot be found in any other hotel. With its own ecological garden, the hotel takes responsible cooking seriously – you even can take a cookery class with the chef, and gather fruits and vegetables from the garden yourself.  What’s more, the Indigo Sunset Bar concocts fabulous cocktails to relish as you drink in that stunning sunset.

Activitie sat Museum Hotel

Delight in a massage with a view at the Massage Terrace, an utterly serene and unique experience. The freeform, mosaic-tiled pool is Roman in style and impossible to resist. Remember to step out of the hotel to gawp at the extraordinary fairy chimneys; try out the Cross Golf driving range for a totally unusual game; and experience the view from above in a hot air balloon.
