Kelebek means ” BUTTERFLY ” in Turkish. Our first view of Kelebek was like a butterfly perched on a flower showcasing magnificent views of Goreme.
Kelebek offers a wide range of 35 specially crafted rooms with each room designed uniquely. The rooms are of 3 categories namely Cave, Stone and Arch. Thus no two rooms are the same. Its also not unlikely for tourists to switch between different rooms during their stay to get a different experience each time! (we did that too)
Built in 1993 and owned by Ali Yavuz, the hotel has skin in the game and the staff spares no effort in making you feel at home. The rooms range from luxurious to simple and affordable, making it perfect for every sort of traveler.
As soon as we stepped out of the shuttle van, we saw a stretching view of Goreme with its different size rock formations. Its not something you see everyday. We were greeted by Tuna, the hotel staff who gave us a tour of this spectacular hotel. We were quickly shown to our room to freshen up and store away our luggage.
We had initially made the booking for the Fairy chimney room. However upon seeing the room in person, we decided that it would be tad bit small for our taste (hey its a cave after all and you cannot change the structure per se). The hotel was gracious and accommodated our request to choose a different room. We then decided to go for a “Junior Suite cave room”
