Museum Hotel is best for viewing the balloons against the backdrop of the whimsical Cappadocia valleys and special occasions. The ultimate in Cappadocia luxury, the Museum Hotel is located in Uçhisar and boasts incredible views over the surrounding valleys – The view of the hot air balloons from the hotel’s Roman Pool is breathtaking and the roman ruins scattered throughout the grounds make for some unique photo opportunities.
