The Arch | A Cappadocian Classic
Arches have been an enduring form of architecture since the Romans brought them to prominence more than 2000 years ago. Arched rooms are a cornerstone of the architectural tradition in Cappadocia. Widespread throughout the region, many different types and variations exist. In Aya Kapadokya’s Arch Suite, the historic and architectural elements discovered during the restoration remain untouched. The original hand-painted cupboard doors and patinated hand-carved stone niches are museum-quality sights to behold.
Features & Amenities
The Arch Suite glows with warm light that pours through two ornate, grand arched windows. The high roofline adds grandeur and scale to luxurious space. The en suite bathroom is hidden behind a wooden separator, in homage to the old bathroom style of the region. Sitting alongside the main courtyard, the 19 square meter suite is cozy and romantic. The suite also has direct access to a comfortable outdoor seating area.
Aya Kapadokya is a one of the most stunning examples of 19th century Anatolian architecture in Cappadocia. Carved into the hillside, the beautiful cave hotel was lovingly restored from rubble and ruin over a two year period. Today, Aya Kapadokya is home to twelve stunning suites.
Aya Kapadokya is located in Cappadocia’s most contemporary city, Ürgüp. Situated just minutes away from Göreme Open Air Museum, the area is well-known for ancient cave dwellings, magical fairy chimneys, early Christian cave churches and fine vineyards. Aya Kapadokya is just a five minute walk from the Ürgüp city center where you can shop for regional specialities including fine carpets, copper and hand-painted ceramics. Aya Kapadokya is also conveniently positioned near many high-quality restaurants and cafes.
