“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2012

We stayed here for a week and found that we were well cared for from the minute we entered the hotel! A small old hotel which is decorated in the traditional Ottoman style, the room (we opted for a superior suite) was lovely, nicely decorated, small balcony and a good sized ensuite.
Food at the hotel is very good, but there are loads of restaurants nearby so you don't have to eat in all the time, they have a coffee machine and freshly baked cookies in the seating area of the hotel, these are available all the time, a nice touch. The Manager Selcuk was so friendly and helpful, he went through maps with us and told us how to get to various places, he was always there if you needed help, always happy and smiling.
We would recommend this hotel, and would stay again, not only was our stay exceptional but it's also ideally situated in the Sultanahmet area, walking distance to all the main sights and for anywhere else the tram system is very easy to use. Oh and the black and white cat who comes round to say hello now and then was so sweet!

Room Tip: Go for a superior room, as you get a lovely airy balcony!

I spent 3 nights in the hotel. It was an excelent experience.
Very well located because is near the more important historic monuments, staff friendly and really nice rooms.
When we arrived there was fresh fruits offered to us that was quite good with a good bottle of turkish wine.
Breakfast could be a a bit better, but it doesnt compromise the stay.

We stayed in the Garden House hotel on our way back to Istanbul after 4 weeks of traveling. We chose it for the location in Sultanahmet being a short walk to the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia. However, from the minute we arrived here we were so well looked after by Selcuk who is very proud of this beautiful hotel and the first class renovations they have undertaken. We were shown in to the gorgeous garden area where you can sit and have a drink at anytime or choose to dine out there in the evening. It was a welcome chill out space after a hectic day of sightseeing. Our room was lovely and big! Another pleasant surprise. Last time we were in Istanbul we stayed at the Sirkeci-Konak which was also very nice but the Garden House Hotel is definitely the better choice for top location, unbeatable service and a memorable stay.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor and it was big and sunny with a small balcony. The air conditionin...

Charming boutique hotel centrally located in the old part of the city, just below the Hippodrome / Blue Mosque. Very accomodating management and staff. Received exellent recommendations for excursions and where to go from Mr. Selcuk who is responsible for guest relations. Very cozy backyard to relax by a drink or dinner following a busy sightseeing day. For us it was a perfect location to stay for a sightseeing trip to Istanbul.

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.
