“Cosy & Conveniently Located”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

This is a small and cosy hotel ... not "great" or "best ever" as other reviewers said, but nice, specially in relation to its price. We opted for a hotel in the old town , to be within strolling distance from lots of Ottoman sites. On a previous visit to Istanbul, I stayed at the Hilton in the modern part of the city ... obviously convenient for business and shopping, but lacks Istanbul charm.

The hotel is divided over two buildings, with a small multi level garden in between, with lots of stairs to climb. It has a simple restaurant, where we only had breakfast .... very good buffet. The hotel has a small lounge, where coffee, tea, soft drinks, fruits and nuts are constantly on offer (complimentary)... which is actually a very nice touch.

The hotel is in a tiny uphill street , but a 10 minute walk to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofyia and not far from Top Kapi palace. Three major visitor destinations. It is nice to be able to go there or walk around in various times, without it being a trip with a limited time. You get a better feel for the place that way. We (my mother, wife and kids) were there in November, so the weather was nice during the day, a bit chilly in the evening.

Rooms are comfortable and very clean.

I recently stayed at this most charming hotel and wish I could anticipate another trip to Istanbul to stay there again! The room was lovely and very comfortable. Breakfast was the only meal I had in the restaurant but it was enjoyable and a good reason to go back. Manager Selçuk Topçu was friendly and helpful, really on top of everything, and all the staff were nice and guest-oriented.

I stayed here in December 2011 and I cannot fault my stay. The room was very large and beautifully decorated, with a luxurious and spotlessly clean bathroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is traditional Turkish, with fresh omelettes cooked to order, served in a light and airy conservatory.

I'm looking for an excuse to go back to Istanbul, just so I can stay here again! Just a word of warning though, the hotel is located at the bottom of a very steep street, which you have to walk up to get to the tram stop or the main square, so this hotel might not be suitable for everybody.

The Rose Garden Hotel and Rose Garden Suites are in two converted townhouses connected by a garden on one block in the historic district of Sultanahmet. The area, around the Mehmet Pasha mosque is almost maze-like and you need to navigate by landmarks. I loved it, but it's definitely a good idea to let the hotel staff arrange for your airport pickup the first time as not all taxis can find it.

I stayed in a suite that was a large room decked out in Ottoman / orientalist style, complete with tasseled lamps, and gilded furniture and bedding. The marble bath and hot tub were up to the most modern standards.

The hotel has its own small restaurant, with excellent quality food. It's about a 10 minute walk to the main drag of the old city, Divan Yolu, where most shops and restaurants are located, and to the Blue Mosque and other historic sites. It's an easy taxi ride over to Istiklal street and the other modern amenities of Istanbul.

One of the greatest things about its hotel is its staff. They will help with any questions you may have about ferry boats, tours, shopping, places to visit, etc. Selçuk the manager is the best -- he's super friendly and an excellent representative of the hotel and all that's best about Turkish culture.

The only negative comment I have is that my room was on the 2nd floor and I could hear a lot of street noise at night.

Rose Garden was the greatest hotel we have ever stayed. I enjoyed a beautiful spacious room with our private hamam in our bathroom. Breakfast is till 10:30 so you can sleep late and get a jammy fresh omelette, fruits, nuts, ham, and cheese and of course Turkish coffee. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. The manager of the hotel is always around, so you can talk to him about everything from your requests on accommodation to sightseeing tips. I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to relax just in the heart of Istanbul 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque.
