By Bus

Turkey has an excellent network of reliable bus companies offering regular services between all major destinations, including to/from:

  • Istanbul – 11-12 hours
  • Pamukkale (Denizli) – 12 hours
  • Fethiye – 12 hours
  • Antalya –9-10 hours
  • Ankara–5 hours
  • Izmir –12 hours
  • Konya –3 hours

The buses often have WiFi, entertainment centres with USB,  and stop every 2-3 hours at bus depots where you can use bathroom facilities and buy prepared food and snacks. Although the overnight buses do not have sleeper beds or toilets on board, they are reasonably comfortable (similar to economy airline seats) and onboard hosts will offer water, tea, coffee and light snacks throughout the journey.

Bus Companies:

When booking a bus to come to Cappadocia, be sure to book with a company that will drop you off at the Göreme bus station. Recommended bus companies include Kamil Koç, Metro, Suha, and Nevşehir.

Other companies will only drop you at the nearby towns of Nevşehir, Kayseri or Avanos. Some of these will then provide a shuttle transfer service into Göreme while others do not and you will need to make your own way to Göreme.  This can be difficult for overnight/early morning arrivals.  Be sure to specify that you want to go to Goreme.

Bus Station Pickup:

It is an easy and short 7 minute walk to the hotel from the bus station – check out Maps and Directions.  We can also pick you up free of charge from the Göreme bus station if we have a car available. Just ask the bus company or the Information Centre to call our hotel (+90 384 271 3146) when you arrive and we can be there within 5-10 minutes.

Onward destinations:

We can help you organize your onward bus ticket.  During the high season and during the Turkish holidays, it is best to book your bus ticket 2-3 days in advance, especially for popular areas like Pamukkale, Fethiye, Antalya and Istanbul.  Last minute bookings can be difficult to find during these periods.

 

By Car

Free car-parking is available on the street in front of the hotel but is at the owner’s risk.  Goreme Jasmine House will not take responsibility in the case of theft or damage to your vehicle.
