About Us

Yunak Houses offer a unique accommodation experience in a magnificent natural setting. With 6 cave houses dating back to the 5th and 6th centuries and a total of 39 private cave rooms, Yunak Houses embrace an atmosphere where history and nature intertwine. The hotel is adorned with an old Greek Mansion built in the 19th century, adding a special touch to its charm. Yunak is also the name of the neighborhood it is part of, located in Ürgüp in the Cappadocia region of Turkey.

The word "Yunak" traces back to the times when women without water in their homes would gather at the neighborhood fountains to wash clothes and perform cleaning chores. These fountains, called "yunaks," were a significant part of daily social life during that era. Yunak Houses have carefully restored and decorated the rare cave rooms, staying true to the local texture. The decor includes handmade lace curtains, antique chests, old brass wrought-iron beds, embroidered frames, old Turkish carpets, and antique lamps, all carefully chosen to reflect simplicity and elegance.

Yunak Houses' narrow and winding stone staircases create transitions between the different cave rooms. Each room boasts its private terrace, offering breathtaking views of the opposite mountains. With 39 rooms, Yunak Houses provide an intimate atmosphere while also being spacious enough to offer a personalized experience. The main lobby and reception of the hotel are located in the neighborhood square.

The main building, a 19th-century Greek Mansion, houses meeting rooms, a music room with an extensive collection, a DVD room for cinematic enjoyment, a TV room with international channels, and a computer room with wireless internet access. Yunak Houses have struck a delightful balance between modernity and tradition, making it an ideal location for daily excursions in Cappadocia, centrally situated in Ürgüp.
