“Relaxing oasis amidst a throng of activity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

It seems that this hotel is a bit further away from the main sightseeing attractions, but in fact, it is very close by once you work out how to navigate the backstreets (which isn't too hard). The garden area makes a welcome relief for sun or shade, which ever you wish, and the different levels of hotel, restaurant and suites makes it a more interesting setting. we stayed in suites and were very pleased with the quietness (even with a room facing the breakfast area, i heard little sound, and I am a light sleeper). The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff are very friendly and super helpful (thanks especially to Ramazan and Selcuk). The food is quite reasonable (breakfast and snacks) and the beer is cold. Nice touches of free water, fruit and biscuits to help yourself.

Close to all Main Attraktions, Helpful staffs, big& cleaned room with balcony. Mr. Ramazan is helpful service staff. After Sightseeing i,m refreshed myself with coffee and some fresh fruits in lovely& charming Garden.
Instead of Swimming Pool i spent the wonderful and relaxing Time with Good Book in Lovely Garden.

very central exactly as it says on the tin - quiet area and helpful staff - close to all the main attractions - the staff cant do enough for you - we couldnt find anywhere open to eat late one night so they cooked for us after midnight which was very accommodating

We are just finishing our stay at the Rose Garden Suites. The Suites are connected to a main hotel across a courtyard. The rooms are spotlessly maintained, with all the little touches that make this feel like home.

Our stay was in two parts, about 7 nights total, broken up by a couple of nights in Selcuk.

Breakfasts were great, in true Turkish style with an a plus of an omelet chef who was consistent. Also great were the simple but elegant wine and cheese hours (6:30 to 7:30 many days). Sitting in the garden after a long days' touring was wonderful.

For all the other plusses, probably the best thing about the hotel is the staff. Arif, the reservation manager, was extraordinarily kind and vigilant. Whatever you need - he'll get. But it doesn't stop there. Boris at the front desk was always helpful, and the porters, breakfast manager, and all other staff were just fantastic.

About the only note I have is that It is important that you not mind dealing with steps, as there are a bunch. I think the hotel has an elevator, so if you mind steps, stay in the main hotel building (which is in front of the garden). Also, a good tip is to take cards from the hotel desks to show taxi drivers. The streets of Istanbul are crazily named, and most cab drivers won't be able to find the hotel without help.

Finally, if you are hesitating to come to Istanbul now - don't. It is wonderfully safe and fun.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 213 with a balcony and then, after returning, room 411. Both were attractive in d...

The staff was very helpful and hospitable. They had daily breakfast with someone cooking fresh eggs of your choice! We stayed there three nights; and our room was located around the courtyard so in the mornings we could hear cutlery (people must be having breakfast) and there are seating area outside our rooms
Which can be quite noisy when the neighbours are out having a good time. All in all, it has been a good stay, good location and great service.

This hotel won me over within 5 minutes of entering the lobby. Wonderfully warm, friendly, helpful staff; beautifully appointed rooms and public areas with old-world charm; airy, welcoming, comfortable lounge area with ample refreshments; pretty and shady garden area to sit in; comfortable, beautifully decorated room with lovely toiletries, fresh fruit, and exceptionally comfortable bed and linens...I could go on! On a practical note, location very convenient, good wifi included, reasonably priced. We will return, hopefully soon :)
