“Perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2012

We spent a week in the Rose Garden Suites and had a perfect stay there due to very personal and warm hearted service (especially Mr. Selcuk did everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible), the cosy atmosphere of the boutique-hotel and its perfect location. The backyard is a real oasis when you have spent the day exploring the city. I would definitely stay there again!

We stayed in the Rose Garden Suites for 3 nights during our trip to Turkey. We were unable to make our original booking in July due to work commitments but the staff were so accommodating and moved our booking at the last minute with no extra charges. The room was large and very comfortable. All the staff were extremely helpful and made all of our reservations for us which worked out perfectly. The location was perfect, close to all the attractions and the gardens made a beautiful sanctuary after the hustle and bustle of the city.
We would definatly stay there again and recommend to anyone else.

Cozy, personal, and intimate was the experience I had while staying at the Rose Garden Hotel in Sultanhamet, Istanbul. If you must cross paths with this beautiful establishment, make sure to ask for Mr. Selcuk personal (Guest Relations). In fact he will probably great you at the door and tell you all about the beautiful City of Istanbul, before you think to ask for him.
All in all, a wonderful place to go relax after you have spent the day getting to know the City and its monuments. There is a nice and open backyard to sit for a drink of your choice, and the food prepared wonderfully.

Room Tip: Choose suite 206, with the terrace.

The Garden House is a boutique-type hotel, with satisfactory sized rooms and bathroom, well furnished, clean and in good order. Breakfast and WiFi was included in the rate, and the hotel is within easy walking distance of the main venues in the old part of the city.

All in all, it is a competent package.

There are 2 minor 'buts'.

Firstly, the WiFi in my room was quite weak, so you may have to move to the public areas for a better signal - but it did work in the end, albeit with patience required.

The second issue is food hygiene. Whilst you have to expect a more casual approach to this aspect in places like Istanbul, nevertheless, for a hotel which is ranked at #34 out of 769 in the city - it justifies a mention. So, the breakfast waiter should NOT pat down the cheeses and cold meats on the plate with the palm of his bare hand....... And the egg counter lady who wears gloves, should not clear away the dirty plates from tables, and wipe them, then wipe her face, expecting her gloves to then continue performing any useful function in food handling. Picky perhaps, but if you aspire to the higher rankings, you should not cut fast and loose in such basic food handling ways.

However, I'd stay there again. I hope the management takes on board the comments above, as very little effort is required to improve matters.

Room Tip: close to a WiFi router - ask. some rooms have weak coverage

Perfect location for a getaway in the wonderful city of Istanbul.
Nice, clean and a super friendly staff made our short stay truly wonderful.
Not the cheapest hotel around, but most certainly among the most charming
and personal. Will definately return...

This little boutique of a hotel isn't flashy, but a warm delightful gem of a hotel. Located in the old part of the city, it enabled us to get everywhere we wanted to go quite quickly and efficiently. Breakfast down among the rose garden was so peaceful and with all the different dishes, everyone could find something enjoyable to eat. Staff very helpful and accommodating. We can recommend this spectacular little gem of a hotel as a quiet oasis in a vibrant city.
