“Just perfect”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

Everything we could of wished for in a short break. Our room was delightful (and ours was one of the cheapest style rooms). It was very individual and had a real "boutique" feel.
There was a communal area to sit and read with coffee, drinks and biscuits always available. Once we found our bearings we were only 500mts from the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque area.
The hotel helped us with all of our requests for tours and taxi's and were always around when we needed them.
The breakfast was good, mainly continental with fresh cooked omelettes and eggs.
Would definitely go back!

First of allit is now called the Rose Garden Hotel, orcan also be found as the Rose Garden Suites on tripadvisor (all the same hotel). The hotel is more like an inn, rather than a chain hotel. The staff is warm and friendly and the service feels personal. When you check in a fruit bowl and bottle of wine is delivered to your room. The highlight of the hotel is the gardened courtyard (hence the name). It is several tiers of rose bushes and greenery. Cookies and cake are out most of the day, and seating is any thing from Ottoman pillows to leather coaches with plent of tables to sit down and relax after a day of sightseeing. One evening I asked where a certain restaurant was. The staff said we will phone them and they will pick you up, and they did. Also the hotel is in a great location, maybe a 5-7 minut walk to the Blue Mosque, and Haiga Sophia

I spent 4 days magical I liked the area it was before and during ramadan I went to sultan ahmed not far from the hotel. the grand pazar and I recomend using the tramp to kapatash and tophane and other areas. although the tramp not far but there is some distance ask the people in the hotel how to go there. internet wifi is free :-)

I had a very nice stay here! I was pleasantly surprised to find I had been upgraded to a nicer room when I arrived. The breakfast was delicious. The location was very good, and the staff were quite friendly.
