“Great breakfast and service”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

Stayed one night in Garden House and I was impressed with the internal design, food and service. It's in the middle of all actions in Sultan Ahmet, walking distance to anywhere you would like to go. A private Turkish Bath (hamam) also available in every room.

Room Tip: Get a balcony if you are a smoker

My wife and I stayed here in mid May. Our first impression was the friendliness of the staff and especially Mr. Selcuk, the Guest Relations manager, who does everything he can to ensure your stay here is comfortable. He is also a mine of knowledge about Istanbul. The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast superb and there is a cool tranquil courtyard where one can sit and relax with a coffee and cake (provided all day for guests - no charge). It was very relaxing to return to the hotel in late afternoon after a busy day in the city to sit in the shade of the walnut tree. The major tourist sites are a pleasant 5 minute walk away. We highly recommend this hotel, we shall certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room in the new part of the hotel was fabulous, quiet and clean. Rooms in the older part may hav...

Its rare to find a hotel where you can feel at ease in the common lounge area. Garden House has such an area with free access to coffee, cake, etc and a seamless connection to a delightful courtyard shaded by a beautiful walnut tree.
Selcuk is a delightful host.
The hotel does need to improve its wifi. The worst we experienced in a month of travel to Greece and Turkey.

Just a short stroll from many attractions including The Blue Mosque,Hagia Sophia etc this is an excellent base from which to explore Istanbul.The room was clean and spacious and the staff were friendly and helpful-Seljuk,the manager,deserves a particular mention for going the extra mile to ensure his guests enjoy their stay.If I were to return to Istanbul I would not hesitate to return to The Garden House.

Located in Sultanahmet sits this lovely little hotel. The staff were extremely welcoming and always helpful. Rooms weren't overly large but big enough for the two of us. Very clean throughout. Breakfast buffet was great and the resturant is open until midnight! Surprisingly we did need this one night after a long tour. The best thing was we had booked a day trip to Gallipoli through a tour company and scheduled it for our last day in Istanbul. Unfortunately due to a mix up we weren't collected. I was most upset thinking I has missed my opportunity however one of the friendly staff made several phone calls and eventually got a hold of the tour company (at 7:00am) and eventually negotiated from several phone calls to numerous people a solution. The tour company sent a car to pick us up then a coach to meet up with the tour bus. If it weren't for the staff at Garden House I would not have had one of the most special experiences of our trip. Thank you!!
