Would you pay ~$100 a night to sleep in a luxury ancient cave monastery, which doubled as a Turkish prison back in the day?

We know, we know, it is hard to get Midnight Run out of your mind. However, it sounds like you should consider this former prison lodge when visiting Turkey.

Gamirasu Cave Hotel is an eighteen-room cave house, in Ayvali Village near Urgup, right in the middle of Cappadocia, Turkey.

So what is cave luxury? Well some rooms come with their own fireplace and balcony--along with the other usual amenity suspects.

This is, without a doubt, the closest you will ever come to a real life Uncle Owen-Aunt Beru experience.
