Koza Cave Hotel

History said, the city of Cappadocia formed millions years ago by volcanic eruptions.

That is why most buildings there are made from natural rocks, and surrounded by hills and valleys.

I was so excited when i know that we will stay in one of the cave hotel in Goreme, Cappadocia.

We were from Istanbul that time, so we need to take a 45-60 minutes flight from Ataturk Airport (Istanbul) to Nevsehir Airport (Goreme,Cappadocia) by Turkish Airlines.

Initially, we wanted to take public transport from Nevsehir airport to the Koza Cave hotel, but after we did our research, Goreme is not so public-transport friendly. the bus there only come every 30-45 minutes, and once you reached the bus station, you still need to drag your luggage up and down the hills to reach your cave hotel.

Finally we decided to take shuttle bus that managed by some transportation company *cant remember what company that we engaged*, it cost us about 15-20 EUR / trip if im not wrong.  Just like every shuttle bus in all around the world, they will stop in a few places (hotels) . Luckily our hotel is the first stop. hehe.. it was quite a journey from the airport to the hotel. it took us about 50 minutes to reach Koza Cave Hotel.

The great thing about the van is.. they have a WIFI in it. hahaha *first-world problem!* haha. i was quite amazed when i saw a very big user ID and password that they paste on the van’s dashboard. really like this kind of van! hahaha.

Once we arrived in Koza Cave Hotel, It was scorching hot outside. it’s like the sun is just shine right above you. i thought it will be better inside. so, we quickly went in to the Lobby, which looks like a normal living room and did our check in.

I was surprised that the lobby doesn’t have any air-con, but have the cooling feeling, even though i still feel very hot and humid inside. what made me even more surprised is the have no air-con inside the room as well. i asked one of the hotel owner (it’s run by one friendly family), why there’s no air-con over their place? they said, because it’s cold at night and the rocks will give you the cooling feeling.

and you know what, when i touched the room walls (made from rocks).. it really is cold.. and i was shivering at night because it is too cold.. haha.. luckily they already provide us with a thick blanket to sleep in. haha..

*itu fenomenal aneh bngt menurut gw.. siang.nya puanas bngt udara di luar.. dan pas masuk cave.nya tuh jadi adem2 gimana gt. haha.. udah kyk udara di gurun pasir deh pokok.nyaa.. *

and all that i can say is please do stay at cave hotel when you are staying in Cappadocia.. it’s a very rare and great experience that you will be having. hehe.. especially for us who stayed in Asia i may say.

below are some pretty photos from Koza Cave Hotel.

Recommended Hotel in Taiwan

Went to Taiwan and Hongkong for the last 11 days of 2011.

so, let me start by introducing all the hotels that we stayed for this Oriental Trip. hihi.

the first day we arrived in Taipei, we stayed in Caesar Park Hotel.

its a 5* hotel, located at the heart of Taipei. It’s basically above Taipei Main Station, and attached to a small shopping centre with a lot variation of foods below the hotel.

a very spacious room and free wifi at the hotel! hihihi.

—–

 and for the following day. we travelled to hua lien city.

it’s Charming City Hotel Hua Lien.  It’s in 19 Guoshing 2nd Street.

It’s a 3* Hotel. but not bad. they actually gave us voucher for breakfast and we can get a glass of wine for their welcome drink. eventho its not an expensive one. but still, i think its quite a good service. and we have a private room there to enjoy our wine during the christmas eve. =)

 

it’s quite spacious room too. but they only have the wifi at their lobby with a very long password. hahaha.

owh.. and they made their bathroom seen through from the bedroom. hahaha. *As u can see the pic below later on*. and if u are bathing in the bathtub, we can see your silhouette. hahaha..   

we spent out 3rd day at the most beautiful hotel that i ever stayed, named

Silk Place Hotel at Taroko at Hua Lien city

my banker friend said. that one episode of Baccalaureate was taken in this hotel.

it is just a perfect hotel in the middle of the mountains. haha..

the hotel are just a 5 storey’s hotel. but they designed it perfectly beautiful. well, that’s what i think. haha.

they have a very spacious cozy room, a very good facilities (indoor pool, outdoor pool, spa, outdoor jacuzzi, spacious playing room with ps3 or xbox there, bonfire surrounded by the nature and cozy sofa’s)

 

it is just perfect for honeymoon. HAHAHHAHA.. it is a very romantic place. *again, in my opinion.* especially, when u are out there near the bonfire in a winter time, with the life music.

hmm.. perfecto. ahhahahahaha..

 

swimming pools between the mountains. too freezing to even touch the water. haha

and they have a very good wifi too. hahaha.. u can access it in every part of the hotel.

after Taroko Gorge, we moved to tai chung city.

and we stayed in Plaza Hotel near the Taichung Station.

It is a very business hotel and very small. hahaha..

nothing much too say for this hotel. they have nice fried noodle and fried rice for their breakfast tho. haha

owh yahh. and condom is provided as well in this hotel. hahaha. *my first time seeing this in the hotel.*

after taichung, we were back to Taipei and stayed at Howard Hotel.

Its a 5* hotel, but i dont really feel the grandness that 5* hotel suppose to have. ahahhaha.

quite good location tho, even tho its not as convenient as caesar park hotel. but still accessible.

near MRT as well. *well, i forgot which MRT station. hahaha..*

and it’s near HELLOKITTY CAFE! hihihi..

 

but their wifi is expensiveee.. it cost u SGD 25 for a day, and can only be used for a device.

*so, if u already insert the pin to ur laptop, u cant use it with ur smartphone. hauahua..

but overall, its a good hotel . =)

 

okay.. that’s all for now..

and i think all the hotels should pay me for the good reviews. hahaha..

cheers.
