The hotel is called the Cappadocia Museum Hotel, both because it reflects the history of the region on a wide scale and also because all kinds of historical artifacts are on display in the rooms, as well as in the rest of the establishment. Each room, each suite is unique, and the whole hotel complex has been designed to preserve original cave structure.
The Museum Hotel is located in Uçhisar, which means “the highest castle” in Turkish. Uçhisar is the pinnacle of Cappodocia and for thousands of years, people have lived here in caves, in dugouts of the porous tufa rock and in stone houses. The Museum Hotel still bears traces of these early inhabitants who sought out the protection afforded by living where they could see the whole Cappodocia beneath them. In the hotel’s luxurious rooms and suites, one can still see the evidence of their ancient lifestyles. Situated in Uçhisar, at the highest point of Cappadocia, the Museum Hotel terraces and deluxe rooms provide you a panaromic view of fabulous rock formations and a beautiful valleys. The vantage point reveals the ever changing and colorful Cappadocian landscape at both sunrise and sunset.
