We stayed at The Garden House Hotel for 8 nights in September 2012 on two separate occasions. We were made most welcome by the staff who were friendly, courteous and helpful. The hotel is conveniently situated for visiting the main sites in Sultanahmed but be prepared to walk up fairly steep slopes to get there. The bedrooms were very comfortable with authentic Turkish furniture and fittings (our bathroom design was in the hamam style. The breakfasts were continental - cheese, cold meats and yogurt sat alongside croissants and fruit. An option was offered on most days for delicious omelettes. On Friday and Saturday evenings during the period of our stay complimentary wine and cheese was on offer between 6.00 - 7.00p.m. The Manager spent time with all newly arrived guests to show them brochures of Istanbul and to tell them about the range of sites and activities in the city; a most helpful gesture much appreciated. The shady courtyard was an added attraction; a good place to sit and chat with fellow guests. Of the two bedrooms that we stayed in the second one overlooking the courtyard had by far the most attractive views.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Garden House and would happily stay there again on future visits to Istanbul.
