World travelers have spoken.

If you’re looking for a stay that will allow you to take a step back in time, head to the Kayakapi Premium Caves hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey.

The property was recently ranked as the top hotel in Turkey, the third best hotel in Europe, and the 12th best hotel in the world by travelers as part of the 2018 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards thanks to its impressive cave dwellings you can book a stay in.

Located in the Kayakapi neighborhood of Cappadocia, which is one of the city’s first historic residential areas, the property is made up of hundreds of centuries-old cave homes and structures.

The historic structures you’ll find today include everything from a cave church on the grounds that dates back to the 10th century and a mosque dating back to the 11th century.

Guests can choose from cave rooms, suites, and mansions, with the hotel’s most splurge-worth room — the Grandiose Cappadocian Pool Mansion — complete with both an indoor and outdoor pool and sweeping views over the city

While the hotel’s other suites and rooms don’t guarantee you two pools, they do come with complimentary Godiva chocolates, the option of plunge pools, iPod docking stations, and Nespresso machines.

Meanwhile, those looking to take a dip with a view can also check out the hotel’s upper-level pool, where they’ll be treated to panoramic views over Kayakapi, Cappadocia, and the hot air balloons that are known to fly over the area.

The property is also home to a variety of restaurants serving traditional Cappadocian and international specialties, its own wine cellar, and several lounges housed in the cave setting.

Guests will also be treated to views of the city of Ugrup and the Goreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia, both of which have been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1985, during their stay.
