We wanted to stay near the bus station on our last day in Goreme and explore the valleys before taking our night bus to Istanbul, so we decided to stay at Dora Motel as it is almost beside the bus station and the room rate was really cheap at less than EUR20 for 2 persons. It?s not the usual cave hotel, very basic but location-wise, it?s perfect, right in the middle of the town.

The young reception guy was very friendly and accommodating (I remember his name now -- Baran). And some guests are friendly too. The building is a new modern structure unlike the others which are caves. The twin room is small and simple, just two single beds, a cabinet & bedside tables. In the morning, you can see the balloons flying and a good view of the valleys just like other hotels in the area on the two windows.

The room rate we had had shared shower which is on the same floor but the toilet is surprisingly on the ground floor beside the reception which is a bit strange and inconvenient, am sure if you fart people at the reception will hear it. But that?s what you get for a cheap rate. No complaint there if you?re really on a budget.

Breakfast is on the top floor overlooking the town below and the flying balloons during the early mornings. Breakfast is enough, nothing fancy but filling.

Wifi is working good, enough fluorescent lamp inside the room.

Very basic facilities but really friendly staff. You can also book all your travel needs with them at reasonable costs.

Recommended for budget traveler who wants to be in the middle of the town and near the bus station.

Unique Qualities: Budget and very central.
