“Excellent service, great staff and felt home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

It was a beautiful and relaxing 3 nights stay with my family; staff were very warm and friendly, food was excellent with amazing garden, The location of the hotel is well in the centre of the city and all attractions areas are just a walking distance.

We travel twice to Istanbul yearly and the Garden Hotel will be my prefered hotel to stay at all times.

I have stayed at many hotels in Istanbul, and this is by far my favorite. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, especially Selçuk and Ramazan. Each room is decorated a way that makes you feel like royalty, AC included. But it was the extra things that make this hotel worthy of such a great view. All day there is free coffee, juice, pastries, water, and fruit, with an all you can eat buffet each morning. It is in a great location, a short walk to the Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, and Topkapi. The garden cafe in the center of the hotel was especially lovely, giving a nice environment for relaxing, eating, or having a drink. All in all, it was a great experience.

it was a wonderful experience -Rooms were clean and well decorated, breakfast was an excelllent selection and complimentary drinks throughout the day mist welcome. The location was perfect for all the key sites. The absolute best thing though was the genuine service of the staff and hospitality shown not just to myself but a friend who was also staying in the city and came to hotel. All the staff were warm, welcoming and helpful . It made the stay in abeauotiful city - definitely on cards for revisit and recommendation to friends

Right off the bat, I would say the staff was amazing, expecially Ramazdan and Nino. They have a great buffet breakfast in the Garden every morning with awesome service.
Location of this hotel could not have been better, close to the center, but be prepared to walk up a steep hill to get to the sites.
Rooms were very clean, beds comfortable, air conditioning was awesome (for those hot summer nights)
Complimentary water, juice, fruit, coffee and tea all day long makes everything so convenient.
We have stayed at many hotels, and this one for the price was the best deal we ever had.
If you are looking for a great hotel, in Istanbul close to the attractions, look no further, Garden House Suites and Rose Garden is the best.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the Garden. It was quiet, save the prayers during the night, b...

I was here three weeks ago and it was so amazing , breakfast which is all you can eat buffet was so delicious and all services was nice. Garden House has a big garden as the name implies and the garden which you can enyoj within was so amazing. And also location is very suitable therefore you can reach whereever you want easily. All the staff and waiters was friendly so they can do immediately whatever you want. Also beds was so comfortable. In coclusion, If you want to stay in Sultanahmet you can select Garden House contentedly. Definitely I can say that I was pleased with Garden House ! This is one of my favorite places I have ever stayed in Istanbul !

This is one of my favorite places I've ever stayed. The hotel itself was nice, clean, comfortable, probably 3 to 4 star, but it was the people there that deserve a 5+ star review. Friends I met in Istanbul suggested I move to this hotel about a block from the place I was in. I looked it over and liked what I saw and when I said I'd have to be out of my other place by 10 in the morning, they said it was no problem, if the room was ready, I could move in right away, and would I like breakfast, too? So accommodating, so helpful with directions, but it was more than the professionalism of the staff, it was also what appeared to be a sense of community there. It was Ramadan and they were hosting Iftar for the workers in the area. A woman working at a travel agency nearby told me that she had been invited to it. It reminded me of community Thanksgiving dinners that I've been a part of. I would have loved to have taken part in it. It was that feeling of community that has more than sold me on this small hotel.

The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the furnishings nicely put together, definitely a boutique hotel. I found a basket of cherries and apricots when I moved into the room, nice touch. Breakfast is included and was good, healthy, tasty. My only (small) disappointment with it was the coffee, they really need to make it stronger.

I had a hard time finding this on TripAdvisor to write a review because their card lists them as Rose Garden House. Any way of having it indexed by either name?
