Not a Regular Hotel Stay, It's an Amazing Experience.

We stayed for two nights in Opium Room. It was an amazing experience. Completely, all staff is very polite, helpful and cheerful. Every detail in the hotel is unique and elegant. Architecture, furniture, textiles, music, food... from top to bottom everything was delicately well thought. Spa and pool area make you feel like you are in a sacred temple. There is more to tell but definitely you should experience it yourselves. If you are visiting the region, It is a must. Definitely me and my wife will visit Sacred House again and stay in a different room.

A place of unrivalled experience!

No words can describe how I felt about this place. From the moment incredibly polite Mehmet opened its huge old-fashioned door to us, gave us a very professional tour of what I still think is the most extraordinary place on Earth, till the moment we sadly had to leave. It’s hard to start, because one can’t decide where to start from. The library. Collections of Blake, Shakespeare, Dostoyevski, some of them first editions. Each room is designed differently. Each a masterpiece. The bar that reminds of Heaven. The collection of old swords, some of them said to have belonged to the Ottoman sultans. The spa. Oh the spa. The pool inspired by Dante’s Inferno, with red tiles that give you impression the water is as red blood mixed with fire. The food. Exquisite. Mix of the Ottoman and Armenian delicacies. I simply can’t wait to go back. It is truly sacred.

We did Cappadocia slow travel way, taking our time and enjoying the place. Sacred House was our final pitstop. What better place to truly rest and relax. We stayed in Deep Forest and loved our lovely nook.
All the rooms are ornate and beautifully decorated, with plush, comfy beds. The hotel is stunning, it’s been renovated to be a thing of beauty. We thoroughly enjoyed the basement pool, swimming in it every day. The library was out of this world, a gorgeous place to hang out with a glass of wine on a rainy day. The hanging staircase is something I want in my home. But the best part of Sacred House is its people. They went the extra mile with a smile -always. Truly lovely, lovely people and a wonderful asset to this wonderful hotel. The food was fantastic - we had breakfast and Armenian dishes for dinner and are still oohing about them. The service at all times was impeccable. I just wish I had more time to try out the hammam and massages. And, Mystique, I’m sorry that I didn’t share my cake with you, but I was told you were on a special diet. I’ll be back with something diet-friendly - maybe a new squeaky toy? We’ll be back - and hopefully will get to stay in The King’s Ego.
