Argos in Cappadocia

A truly unique experience. This 1500-year old rock-hewn monastery has been reborn as a romantic getaway for honeymooners and couples. The lackluster food aside, this is the finest luxury hotel in Cappadocia.

Stay at Argos

Once an ancient monastery complex with dwellings hewn out of the rock, now home to a boutique luxury hotel. With restored mansions connected by underground tunnels to romantic suites with in-room swim-through cave pools – the Argos is a rare offering in a unique part of the world. Perched in a singular location high above the village of Uchisar we have no qualms recommending the Argos as the finest hotel in Cappadocia. A stay here combines luxury with mystery and romance, with all three wrapped up in 1,500 years of history and culture. Simply sublime.


Perched on a hillside overlooking the village of Uchisar. Perfectly placed to watch the majestic rise of the balloons at sunrise. Around 10-minute drive from Goreme, 30 minutes from Nevsehir airport and an hour to the busier Kayseri Airport.


51 well-designed rooms in four categories spread across seven restored mansions. Choose from standard, deluxe, suite and Splendid suite. The four Splendid suites have in-room cave pools. One mansion (which sleeps eight) has an infinity pool and cave lounge.

Who is it for

Perfect for couples and honeymooners looking for something truly one-off. The hotel is children and pet friendly but isn’t ideal for families. Foodies may also be a little disappointed by the food – which is lacking for a hotel of this standard.

Facilities & activities

An underground network of ancient tunnels now used as a home for 22,000 bottles of wine - a tasting evening here is a must. Fascinating free tours of the historic hotel complex. A terrace restaurant with produce from an organic on-site garden.
