What’s Artemis Cave Suites like?
These beautiful cave suites built right into the rocks of Goreme, one of Cappadocia’s main towns, are up there with my favourite places I’ve ever stayed.
It’s locally owned with helpful and friendly staff, they can organise activities like hot air balloon rides and horse trekking for you, and it’s in a brilliant location for watching the balloons.
How was the room?
My room was huge, with a large bed as well as a TV, a wardrobe, a desk and a nice bathroom with toiletries. Cappadocia cave hotels can get cold but my room had an air con/heater so no issues there.
How about the facilities?
Artemis Cave Suites has a number of different rooftop areas for balloon spotting and photos, which was ideal!
There are three rooftops decked out with colourful cushions, rugs, fruit platters and tea trinkets to take your photos to the next level, and there’s also two different areas for eating and drinking in the sun.
And if you want an authentic cultural experience, try out their Turkish Bath!

Artemis Cave Suites are in a perfect spot, up on the hill surrounding Goreme just a short walk from the main sunrise viewing point in town.
It’s a five minute walk down to the main town area with shops and restaurants.
Does Artemis Cave Suites serve food and drink?
Artemis Cave Suites serve a fantastic buffet breakfast every morning with everything you need, from eggs and other hot dishes to fruit to baked goods and more.
Grab a plate, pour a tea and head outside to snatch a spot with a beautiful vantage point over the city.

It felt homely, the room was comfortable and the location was brilliant, but most of all, those rooftop terraces were the most incredible place to be at sunrise. Even though it was November and was damn cold!
It’s definitely one of the best cave hotels in Cappadocia, and I’d stay there again in a heartbeat.

All the basic details from my big trip:
How do you find your flights? Skyscanner! I use the Everywhere tool to find the cheapest place to fly to each Tuesday
Do you fly every week? Not every week no, once I have the destination I check trains and buses to see if there’s any other transport options aside from flying. If so, I usually book these using the Trainline app.
How do you book your accommodation? I book all my hotels, hostels and apartments on either booking.com or Hostelworld.
Do you have travel insurance? YES, I always travel with travel insurance and you should too. I’m insured for an annual policy with Worldcare NZ.
Do you offset your carbon credits? I sure do! I always offset when I book if the airline gives me the option (Ryanair does), and I also offset all my flights using Co2nsensus.com.
What luggage do you travel with? I travel with a 75cm Samsonite Cosmolite suitcase, a matching Samsonite Cosmolite 55cm cabin luggage hardcase, and a cheap laptop backpack.
What camera do you use? You can see the full list of what’s in my camera bag right here.
What laptop do you use? I have a super powerful ASUS Zenbook Pro Duo and I LOVE it. It’s got an extra half-screen for maximum productivity and more than enough space and memory for intense video editing. Win win!
