“for the second time excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

First in Jun and for the second time in December I enjoyed the hotel and suites very much. The location is near to most major touristic places. The hotel serves a good breakfast. Fresh fruit, bread en just order the egg as you want. The hotel staff is friendly. I get an upgrade when I told to visit the hotel for the second time this year.

Stayed December 2012, traveled on business

We stayed at the Rose Garden Suites from Oct 18th to 21st. Hotel is very authentic, and well decorated. We had a suite, and a bonus was the turkish bath in our suite. We used it a couple of times as it was enjoyable. Room was quite large, clean and comfortable. The welcome basket was a bonus we did not expect, so thank you for the wine! The staff was very attentive, and did recommend, and help set up tours for my bf and I. The breakfast was sufficient, and had variety to fill you up. We did not get a chance to try their happy hour, but did see many guests during that time indulging in wine! The location was very central. As other reviewers has said, very close to the many attractions such as the Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, and Basilica Cistern, etc... Walking around at night however might be scary if you get lost in this area. Only one issue, the cleaning lady mistakenly disposed of my sunglasses thinking it was garbage because it was in it's safety cloth. Would I go back to this hotel, definitely if you want to be somewhere central in the old side of Istanbul.

We stayed in the Rose Garden Suites for a long weekend. The room was beautiful, clean and definitely had the wow factor. The staff were polite, helpful and went out of their way to help. The location is amazing. It's five minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cistern Underground palace, and about ten minutes to get to the Topkapi Palace. Lots of restaurants nearby, and about ten minutes to the Grand Bazaar. I would definitely stay in this hotel again and recommend it to friends/family. Honestly, it made our weekend a real success.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 312. It's the red/maroon room in the photos, with the gold chairs. Stunning. H...

We really liked the hotel. It is right in the centre of Sultanahmet and within easy walking distance of the major attractions. We had a large attractive room with a balcony and views of the Bosphorous. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly and more than willing to assist with any enquiries we had.
There was only one downside to the hotel and that was the breakfast. There was very limted choice and what there was, was of dubious quality. The choce of 'fresh' fruit was tinned pineapple or inedible, unripe kiwi fruit. The bread was stale and when the boiled eggs ran out, they didn't get replenished.
If we put aside the issue of the breakfast however, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Room 502 is a lovely room, with a balcony and views of the Bosphorous, but it is also on the fourth...

Stayed here for 10 days in November 2012. The hotel was very clean, the staff were pleasant, the location was quiet (well located to see the main touristy sites but not be bothered by the call to prayer or hawkers in the street that you get closer to the blue mosque).

The breakfast was very nice too - nice buffet with pasties, bread, cheese, omelet station, juice, coffee, fruit, etc.

Room Tip: We stayed in the garden suites, on the 2nd floor facing the courtyard. It was a great room.

We (good friends for 35 years) read of Rose Garden Suites great service on Trip Advisor and decided to make Rose Garden our home for 8 nights in Istanbul. Great choice!! Ayan Seleck, the manager, arranged great tours for us and is meticulous in his care. Suat, who takes care of the evening dining room, is friendly, informative, and fun. Lots of laughter and enjoyment. Breakfasts are fabulous. Coffee, tea, water and cakes are always available and Friday and Saturday nights there is a free wine/cocktail hour.All the rooms looked wonderful. Centrally located in the old town, we could walk or tram to everywhere, and the hotel supplied umbrellas in the rain. Met interesting people from all over the world.

Room Tip: We had Room 213 overlooking the garden in the new annex. Because of length of our stay, Ayan gave us...
