On business in Istanbul, I have stayed at this hotel twice. The service is outrstanding, friendly and accommodating.

The attention to detakl is excellent - in my room... More

Knowing the Garden House from a previous holiday, I returned to this pleasant Hotel after a business trip to Turkey. I was cordially received. The friendly and ever helpful staff, the comfortable rooms, the surrounding area, where you do not have to go far to eat out or visit historic sites, all this and more makes this place very special....

If you're looking for a friendly cozy hotel close to the main tourist area (10 minutes walk), but away from the hustle and bustle of the trams and traffic then I would highly recommend the Garden House.

A wonderful hotel - moderately priced, immaculately clean, well-positioned and very comfortable. I booked over the internet and always received a prompt and helpful reply. Airport pick-up is arranged by then and when we arrived we were given a very friendly welcome and found the staff very helpful throughout the stay, especially the manager Selcuk.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
