ARGOS IN CAPPADOCIA:
A HOTEL EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER IN THE WORLD


Overlooking a magical moonscape of volcanic peaks amidst fragrant valleys of apple groves and apricots, the argos in Cappadocia is as improbable a creation as it is immensely inviting. Who would imagine a serenely beautiful, extraordinarily stylish and absolutely unique hotel built from ancient ruins, caves and underground tunnels? Yet this is Turkey’s most unusual and most appealing hotel: an enchanting blend of two thousand years of history, passionate devotion to authenticity and traditions of hospitality, and cutting edge imagination, design and technology. The argos in Cappadocia must be experienced to be believed.

Cappadocia is, arguably, Turkey’s most popular destination outside of Istanbul for world travelers, and for good reason. A mysterious, even unearthly expanse of ravines, canyons, mountains and valleys, it was formed by millions of years of soft volcanic lava and ash. Centuries of wind and water have left oddly shaped tall pillars of lava – the fairy chimneys – that, with their little stone caps and wobbly-looking shapes, remind many visitors of Dr. Zeus’s Cat in the Hat. Clad in blankets of snow in winter, flowering with red roses, wild oleaster, vineyards and orchards, and dotted with gurgling fountains and freshwater springs in spring and summer, Cappadocia is a surprising, delightful discovery throughout the year.

But, what really sets Cappadocia apart from virtually every other place in the world is its history of human habitation. For millennia – Cappadocians are mentioned by Herodotus, the 5th century BC Greek historian, and in the Bible – master stone carvers, monks, early Christians and other residents carved monasteries, houses and mansions, intricate networks of underground tunnels, even entire underground cities, deep into the rock.

This is the setting for the argos in Cappadocia, a labor of love 18 years in the making and now a world-class hotel that exceeds the expectations of the most sophisticated of international travelers. It began with the vision of turning a complex of some ancient dwellings into a world-class luxury hotel. The dream was enhanced with the discovery of the ruins of Bezirhane, a 1500-year old rock-hewn monastery and later hostel for camel caravans on the legendary Silk Road. What followed were years of careful excavation and research, training of stone and iron workers and carpenters in traditional crafts, delicate restoration of historical buildings, caves and tunnels, and the implementation of the grand, innovative design by one of Turkey’s leading master architects, Turgut Cansever. Finally, the argos in Cappadocia opened its doors as an elegant masterpiece – a highly imaginative 51-room boutique hotel and concert hall that reinterprets the rich traditions of the past for today’s discerning travelers in breathtaking fashion. For many guests it is also one of the most romantic hotels in the world.

The hotel’s accommodations are offered in several styles, from standard rooms to “Splendid Suites.” What distinguishes them from other hotels is that they are situated in six restored “mansions” connected by underground tunnels and pay tribute, in design, to the region’s ancient underground architecture. Opening onto balconies, terraces and secluded courtyards, often with splendid views of neighboring Pigeon Valley and distant peaks, they are nonetheless caves – with all the latest modern conveniences. Capturing the feel, color and texture of timeless stone and wood, each accommodation is distinctively and individually designed, decorated with Turkish carpets, artifacts, candles and decorative objects set in wall niches. Most rooms feature a working fireplace as well as the latest technology, including wireless Internet and excellent sound systems; all Splendid Suites even have their own private in-suite swimming pool.

Other features of the argos in Cappadocia include an outstanding 100-seat indoor and outdoor Seki Restaurant-Lounge-Cellar serving local and regional dishes as well as international fare. At SEKI Lounge guests can relax with a cocktail or a snack from the small menu, while magnificent views of Pigeon Valley stretch beneath their feet. Twenty-four hour room service is also available. The hotel’s huge wine collection, housed in its own wine cellar underneath the restaurant showcases bottles from its own Kalecik Karasi and Syrah vineyards as well as other local selections and carefully selected high end international wines. The Bezirhane concert hall, an ideal venue for corporate meetings, weddings and other special events, is the setting for nightly live classical, jazz and Sufi musical performances.

Perched high above the village of Uchisar, a ten minute walk away, the hotel is perfectly located for the exploration of all of Cappadocia’s treasures. Guests may take advantage of 24-hour concierge services to arrange excursions to such landmarks as the Goreme Open Air Museum, with its 30 rock-carved churches and chapels and frescoes dating to the 9th century, or the underground cities of Nevsehir and other attractions. Hot air balloon trips over the lunar landscape is a popular option. The spectacular sunsets on Mt. Erciyes, the tallest of three volcanoes that spewed their ash and lava over the centuries to help form the unique Cappadocian character, are a must while staying at the hotel. Depending on the time of year, events at the Bezirhane such as the annual Jazz in Cappadocia music festival and major art exhibitions are other enticements for a visit.

The argos in Cappadocia has been honored by travelers and leading authorities alike. In the Conde Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence 2015 it was honored with “Best Countryside Hotel” as well as “Sustainable Hospitality and Corporate Social Responsibility” in 2013, which also gave it a Green Award in 2010. Fodor’s Travel named argos in Cappadocia as one of the 12 “Best Small Hotels” in its Fodor’100 Selection.
