Location Information

Access by the road: 270 km from Ankara - 650 km from Antalya - 780 km from Istanbul.

Access by plane: Turkish Airlines flies to Kayseri Erkilet Airport (ASR) (approx. 80 kms from Goreme) from most major cities in Turkey. Transfers can be made by local bus companies, or simply call Rock Valley Pension to arrange private transport. During summer it may also be possible to fly by charter from European centres into Kayseri or Nevsehir Tuzkoy Airport (40 kms from Goreme).

By car we are approximately 7hrs from Istanbul, 4hrs from Ankara or 6hrs from Antalya. Several bus companies also provide frequent, direct service between Goreme and all major cities. Travel is clean, comfortable and pleasantly priced. To make the most of your time, overnight buses are also available.

On arrival at Goreme, simply follow the signs to Rock Valley, just a 2-3 minute walk (300 meter).

When you exit the bus station take the road in the direction of the patisserie. When you pass the patisserie, you’ll notice a junction of streets.

Take the street leading to the village Mosque, look for the minaret. Keep walking past the mosque and staying on the same road you’ll walk past a carpet shop on a corner, then shortly after a children’s playground. You are now a short distance from Rock Valley.

Make your way through the Pension’s large archway entrance to reception. If arriving between midnight and 6am, please knock more than once at reception.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed there for many weeks in 2007. The place is very clean, the owner very nice and the service excellent.

The dorm beds are singles, and very comfortable. Big fluffy duvets and a wood stove in the winter.

The breakfast is great. And the beer cold.

It's in the heart of the village and had a pool!!

I wrote a little about the place in my blog, i think??

Either way, top notch place.
