Some parts of the hotel were used by istian priests until one thousand years ago. It is the only hotel in the Cappadocia region which contains a Byzantine Orthodox church from the 11th century.

The swimming pool, put into service in 2010, was designed with the inspiration coming from Roman pools in Cappadocia. Since there has been some evidence suggesting that Romans once lived at the place where Gamirasu Hotel is located today, the pool was designed with the antique Roman pool architecture which represents the era.
