Overview

The recently remodeled Garden House Hotel is a traditional Ottoman mansion house turned into a unique hotel, providing 24 individual guest accommodations. The hotel is in a tranquil setting yet is only moments from many major tourist attractions. While the hotel has a rich history, amenities and services are all modern and up to date. Wireless Internet and a business corner with access to a free computer are available. The Garden House Hotel serves delicious Turkish fare in an open-air restaurant and light refreshments and coffee in the hotel bar.

Rooms

No two rooms are the same at the Garden House Hotel in Istanbul. Each guestroom or suite is individually styled, creating a real home-from-home atmosphere. Richly polished wooden floors strewn with jewel colored carpets and gilded furnishings strongly reflect the opulent Ottoman style. Guests feel comfortable and welcome with complimentary tea/coffee in the room, mini bar, pillow menu, bathrobes, herbal bath toiletries and a hairdryer. Also featured in all rooms are a TV, safe to accommodate a laptop, Internet access and two phone lines. Deluxe rooms come with balconies and some have a Turkish bath. On the fifth floor is a luxury suite decorated in a style that is more contemporary. This light and airy suite offers a sea view with balcony, a separate seating area and bathroom with Jacuzzi. There is no elevator in the Garden House Hotel.

  • Excellent buffet breakfast served in the leafy surroundings of the hotel's interior garden

The hotel was excellent. We had great fun! The only problem was the location -- too crowded. But otherwise all good. Good food and music we enjoyed. Very much.

Awesome Cultural Trip

Would recommend Tue, Dec 16, 2014
THE STAFF THERE ARE FANTASTIC! They talk with us about their culture and so willing to provide help when there seems to be any trouble. I don't know if it is this or they are just that professional. Everybody are wearing smiles.

Very excellent experience with super helpful staff, unique rooms (all different from each other) and a gorgeous garden that was perfect to end the long and busy days. Very highly recommended.

Charming but rough around the edges

Would recommend Fri, Jul 11, 2014
Nice hotel, decent location out of the hustle of Sultanahmet - does require a bit of a hike though. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are refreshed nicely daily. Breakfast is good with an extensive selection. Free water, tea/coffee and fruit available all day along with free wi-fi. Really nice courtyard to relax in under the shade of a large walnut tree. Only complaint is that the bathrooms are in need of major plumbing work. Water leaks, extensive mold and dodgy repairs prevail. If this doesn't bother you then the hotel is great.

Dining

Head down the hill towards Kucuk Aya Sophia where there are a couple of nice restaurants with cheaper prices.

We enjoyed our 10 day stay in this hotel. We stayed in the suite which is very spacious (other rooms are significantly smaller) but did not have a balcony. We really enjoyed the garden for relaxing in the shade and and enjoying the free coffee, tea, and snacks. The food was overall good. The location is fantastic, really close to many attractions. We would go back.

Our overall experience was pleasant. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The garden seating area has been done very well. Place is clean. However the internet speed was very very low. Had to spend hours to connect to my corporate network. Corporate travelers may not be happy with that. The hotel does not have elevators hence elderly people may not enjoy walking up and down the stairs.

Very nice hotel

Would recommend Tue, Jan 7, 2014
My wife and I stayed 3 nights at this hotel which is at a very short distance (about 5 min walk) from the Hippodrome/Blue mosque. Hotel staff was very cordial, friendly and helpful and gave us good directions and good advice which saved us from using costlier alternatives (e.g. how to take a tram to go to Dolmabahce palace or where to find a good restaurant). The breakfast was great and we also liked the afternoon snacks/coffee arrangement. Overall, the experience was great and we recommend it for others.

A bit average!

Would not recommend Thu, Nov 28, 2013
Staff very friendly and helpful. Room comfortable but not very big. Rather noisy with local traffic and loud calls to prayer from local mosque woke us up very early most mornings. Poor wifi signal and internet access. Breakfast included: cheeses, cold meats, nuts, muesli, dried and fresh fruit, honeycomb, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, local bread, juices, coffee, but after a few days somehow felt a bit boring. Restaurant evening meal not outstanding and much better available locally. Try 'Spectra' restaurant 5 minutes up road near Blue Mosque - had three meals there, all courses of which were very good indeed (cost about 50TL/person for 3 courses+drinks). Hotel within 10 -15 minutes (1st 5 minutes uphill) walking distance of several interesting sites (Blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, Hippodrome, Cistern, Topkapi Palace etc) and good frequent tram link to many interesting parts of city (3 TL token available at tramstops covers any distance). Several groups offer minibus transfers at airport, so don't pre-book, ditto coming back, should be no more than 5 euro/person. If you want Bosporus boat trip don't buy from touts, you can get fraction of price directly from piers near Galata bridge. Look out for 'Namli' restaurant (cross Galata bridge then look in waterfront area on right hand side), outstanding local dishes at reasonable prices. Also in this area you can get wonderful freshly cooked bbq fish sandwiches (6TL).

A Great Place to stay in old Istanbul

Would recommend Fri, Oct 4, 2013
Staff was warm and welcoming, and very helpful. Location was very good and close to most visited sites. Room was very clean and comfortable. There is a patio on the lobby floor that is very pleasant to relax in. They provide coffee, tea and juices as well as water and Turkish pastries and cookies all day, complimentary. One caveat, to reach all those wonderful sites nearby, one must climb a steep hill about 2 blocks long. Our stay included breakfast, which was a very good Mediterranean style.

Check out the Istanbul Museum of Archeology- Tiled Lions relief from the ancient city of Babylon!
