We chose Garden House on the basis of the reviews, photos, location and air conditioning. The service we received was amazing. The staff were unfailingly helpful, serving tea, fruit and biscuits all day. Breakfast is wonderful, with omelettes cooked to order if required. The air conditioning works quickly and effectively and the daily water supply was a thoughtful extra. Our allocated room was on the fifth floor, which we found to be too much for our legs after a day's sightseeing, so they offered us a choice of rooms on the ground floor.
Best thing: the garden, sitting in the cool shade of the walnut trees during a hot Istanbul afternoon.
Tip: book the airport pick-up. It took us a while to find the hotel in the Byzantine maze of streets.
