We stayed at the Garden Suite for 11 nights and have just returned home. It was a very comfortable, clean and well run apartment hotel. For us it was perfect, we had a one bedroomed apartment with a lounge and small kitchen corner, and a great bathroom with spa bath. This was great after a full day sight seeing in amazing Istanbul. The breakfast provided every morning was great. There was a variety of cheeses, fruit, yoghurt, meats, salads and eggs as well as breads cakes and pastries. Whilst the breakfast room was small it was run with great efficiency by Yusef and the housekeeping staff. The added bonus in the city however was the lovely garden, where we ate breakfast most mornings. It was a little oasis of calm and very well maintained.
Yusef was lovely. He welcomed us and looked after us during our stay as a friendly and knowledgable host. He took time to drink coffee with us and gave us tips about how to get about and where to go for spices and gifts.
The housekeepers were thorough , in the 11 nights we were there they changed our sheets and towels 4 times.
The location is ideal for the major sites. 10 mins walk to the Blue Mosque and Hippodrome. It is a neighbourhood with local shops and bars and we soon became regulars at the Ademoglu pastry shop with the wonderful array of Turkish Delight and Baklava, and the bar just along the street. By turning left out of the hotel and heading towards the coast you find innumerable fabulous fish restraunts and market.
All in all we can't recommend these apartments enough for anyone who wants a comfortable stay in an authentic Istanbul neighbourhood.
