My wife and I (and our 6-year old son) stayed in this hotel for 9 days. We were looking for some place not so expensive so we feel comfortable planning 2-day excursions without checking out. GH offered a very reasonable price for a very comfortably sized room, and we went to Princes' Islands and stayed overnight without feeling too bad about double booking that night. (On a side note, I do recommend going to islands for overnight stays, as they are very nice). The room was stylish, clean and comfortable with all major required facilities. There was water leak from shower due to a design issue but it was not a big deal as there was water drain right next to it on the floor. The hotel staff were helpful, friendly and polite. The food was very good, offering nice samples of Turkish cuisine. If yo are not a food explorer, you can comfortably dine in the hotel without feeling you have lost much, although I don't recommend that as Istanbul has MANY great places to eat. The hotel is located in walking distance of great restaurants at different price levels. It is also very close to most major tourist attractions like Sultan Ahmet square, Bazar, etc. Similar to many Istanbul hotels, there is no gym or swimming pool. Overall, strongly recommended.

Room Tip: Some rooms are very small, so look for suites

Amazing hotel: good location, excellent service, beautiful rooms. I would recommend this hotel very strongly. Staff was polite and helpful. The courtyard views are very pleasant, it is a real Istanbul experience. The restaurant is very nice, and the breakfast is very good as well. There is someone at the desk 24 hours, and location in Sultanahmet is perfect. The second time we have stayed here, we would come back a third time!

The Garden House Hotel Istanbul has comfortable and clean rooms, beautiful garden, delicious breakfast and dinner, free beverages, very obliging staff. Everything was excellent! You just need 5 minutes to walk to the blue mosque and other sights of the historic district.

We are totally satisfied with the hotel. From great service, kind staffs, clean room and pretty lounge, this hotel deserves excellent review. There were always juice, cakes, snacks ready for you 24 hours, In addition, daily newspaper and a huge TV are free to use on lounge. The hotel's location is also its another advantage, Only 5 minuted of walk away from Sultan Ahmet Jami, we were able walk around until late at night.
