It List 2016: the Best New Hotels on the Planet

Your conclusive guide to the most compelling hotel openings of the year.

House Hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey

18 of 49

The first thing that distinguishes the House Hotel is its location in Ortahisar, a picturesque village off Cappadocia’s main tourist track. Gone is the stuffy, museum-like quality found in many of the region’s properties: the 29 understated guest rooms deftly blend past and present, with frescoes and fifth-century natural stone walls alongside rain showers and heated Turkish-marble floors. The designers know you’re going to be outside exploring the iconic fairy chimneys—and yes, you should take one of those now-ubiquitous hot-air-balloon rides—which is why many of the rooms have fireplaces and tubs to take off the chill. At check-in, ask for a crisp glass of white wine made from Emir, a grape native to the region. the​househotel.com; doubles from $141.
