About Us

In December 2018 our co-founder Ertan came up with an idea of designing a -one of a kind hotel- in Cappadocia. After sharing his thoughts with his beloved friend Halil they have agreed to work for this dream. They found the perfect place at Ürgüp’s center and started working. After five months of hard work with the restoration of our early 19th century mansion, they have accomplished their dream in June 2019 and opened The Red Horse Hotel. After The Red Horse Hotel was opened they continue their motto of utmost guest satisfaction, with paying attention to all details. They make sure that their guests receive the best service and leave the hotel with hundred percent satisfaction.
