If you are looking for somewhere different to stay for your holiday retreat then this is the place for you.
Get in touch with your inner caveman with an overnight stay in this rock-cut hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey. Built near the historical village of Akköy near Ürgüp, the family-run Akköy Evleri hosts five boutique rooms built inside former cave houses.
There are plenty of other good cave hotels in the region, but the friendly management, good food and views make this place special. Use it as a base to explore the surrounding area — including the underground cities at Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, the nightlife and architecture of Ürgüp or the nearby Byzantine caves.
Cost: Prices range from US$106-284 for a room. Not that bad considering that the dollar is now weak and you will experience something different.
