Well located near all of the major tourist attractions, we'd definitely recommend this hotel to our family and friends. While the room was small, it was well laid out and perfectly comfortable for our 8 night stay in Istanbul. The hotel staff was very attentive and friendly. The room was clean and fresh each day. The daily free breakfast was excellent.

Our only minor inconvenience was that the WiFi signal in our room was pretty week, but we could get a strong connection from the comfortable first floor lounge that served free water, coffee, and snacks.

Overall, great value and highly recommended.

I had a wonderful 5 night stay at this charming hotel. Rooms were of excellent quality and space. Our room even had a Turkish bath! This was my third visit to Istanbul but it was the first time I realy felt I was at home. I recommend this hotel to everyone and will go back to it in future. It is close to blue mosque and grand bazaar and the staff are very nice and freindly.

Really liked hotel and enjoyed the stay along with friendly staff and complementary breakfast. Walking distance to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi and Grand Bazaar.
Free coffee and cookies anytime were an add on.

I had a wonderful stay in this charming house, ideally located near the blue Mosque. It was a little oasis of calm after a day spent in the lively Grand Bazar! The staff was really nice and welcoming and breakfast buffet delicious. I was also happy to hear the sea-gulls from my room and to enjoy a cup of tea anytime. I will definitely recommend the place to my friends!

Ideally situated close to most of what we wanted to discover (Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Museum ...), we spent four nights in Garden House Hotel..All the family (from 12 to 49 years old) really enjoyed the very comfortable rooms. Staff was impressive : welcoming, kind, reactive and smiling. Nothing else to say that : "Thank you very much !". We recommend of course this hotel if you want to stay few days in Istanbul.

My husband I just returned from a 6 night stay at the Garden House in Istanbul. I was thrown at first because the outside didn't really look like the photos I saw online. Also, it's called Garden House and Rose Garden Suites. No worries, you're in the right place!

I would say this is more like a bed & breakfast than a typical hotel. The rooms are definitely more bedroom than hotel room. We ended up staying in 2 rooms while we were there due to some plumbing issues in our first room. I liked our first room better (304 if I remember correctly) it was spacious and had a remodeled bath. No view as it faced the street. Our second room was on the 5th floor. Smaller bed, not as comfy, the bathroom was tiny.

So, because this isn't an op-ed piece for the New York Times, I will break it down to a pro/con list. This hotel isn't luxury if that's what you're looking for. It's comfortable with several perks!

Pro:

Location. Couldn't be any better. We walked everywhere. It was fabulous.
Breakfast. It was lovely with lots of options and it was nice to have that included with the cost of the room.
Water/Coffee/Snacks available all the time.
The Staff. Very accommodating, friendly and willing to help.

Con:
Very Noisy. You will hear street noise, hallway noise and adjoining room noises.
No Elevator/Lift. Not an issue for us, but definitely would be for some.
Wi-Fi is spotty. Kept going in and out.
No modern amenities such as room service, spa, etc. IF you're in to that sort of thing.

Overall, It was a fine place to stay. It's vacation, you aren't in your room a lot anyway :)

We had a fabulous stay at the garden house for six nights. Fantastic room with balcony, great staff, nothing a problem. They even brought coffee up to our room every morning free of charge.
Good place for children as well. Lovely courtyard for kids to play outside. Staff are charming and very helpful. Definitely would return.
