Why have you called your hotel “Museum”?
As you spend your time in our hotel, you’ll begin to notice that, in fact, you’re in a real, living museum. We named our hotel quite simply as a result of the hobby of our founder Omer Tosun, a passionate antique collector with a wide collection of varied pieces from the Ottoman, Seljuk, Roman, and Hittite periods. From the very beginning of the project, Mr. Tosun always planned for our guests to live within the splendor and surroundings of history. Our guests experience Cappadocian culture in every way, and we strive to give you the sense of a living museum. All the rooms, suites, the Lil’a restaurant, the reception, and all the outer spaces are decorated with valuable—and in some cases, priceless—antiques, registered in Nevsehir Museum.
