... end of the meal.
We started our next morning at the crack of dawn in time for a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the surrounding valleys and countryside in the area. Although the impending thunderstorm clouds meant we didn’t quite see the sunrise it was an incredible experience and we felt very safe in the hands of an English pilot who had been flying in the area for 12 years.
Later that day, after the thunderstorms had set ...
... busy air traffic we end up circling the Bosphorus for another 30 minutes. The Bosphorus is basically a massive strait of water dividing the Asian and European continents and on this sunny day its stunning to see from the sky. 4.5 hours and 3,500km later, we are landed and pleased to get off the overly warm flight. Unbeknownst to us, we in for a 2 hour wait to get through passport control.
We make our way to the domestic terminal where out next ...
... restaurant. Good food but a ridiculous price 15 tl for appies and 100 tl for our meal for two. Why did we stay? Why order the most expensive item on the menu? again, just stupid. Next back to the carpet shop, met an American couple and their son, poor them, getting ripped off too. I don't even know why we were back at the shop. Rick had nothing to say, it was up to me to get us out of there and away from our guide. Yet even when I said we needed to go back to ...
... At a time like this, it is good to be traveling as part of a community of faith. A requiem Eucharist was quickly arranged for Fred and Kathy, with a few slices of bread from the table and a bottle of wine from the bar. We are not very far from Nicaea, although we will not go there, and in the words of the Nicene creed, which we all recited, "we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to ...

After getting a little lost one Turkish shop keeper showed us the way and then measured each of our hands to see whose was bigger (his were) then with a smile he told us to come back later to his store. The markets were interesting, anything you were looking for would be sold there. One guy said: "You ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Garden House Istanbul
The best choice
No best choice in that area near Sultanahmet : good and smiling service, efficient and helpful management. Clean and comfortable rooms. Cice garden for a good breakfast (fresh fruits, yogurt, eggs, ....). free transportation from the airport if you stay more than one night
Le meilleur hotel
Istambul : Hotel garden House : Super
Un hotel exceptionnel, très bien situé à deux pas de Sultanahmet. Personnel toujours aimable. management efficace et serviable. Chambres impeccables. Un des meilleurs choix, sinon le meilleur dans cette catégorie et ce quartier
Un jardin calme pour le petit déjauner, copieux et de qualité
Enjoyed the Garden House
I have just returned from a business trip to Istanbul staying there in the Garden House Hotel for one night. During this short period I noticed a very warm wellcome when I arrived at the hotel. All staff was extremely friendly and helpful. E.g. there was a problem with water which was in the responsability of the municipal water department. The hotel manger immediately offered me another room in the 1st floor which had more water pressure available. There was plenty of space in the nice funished airconditioned room and the absolute clean bathroom.
I enjoyed my stay there very much, having excellent fish for dinner in their calm " gemütlich" outdoor restaurant and having a 3 minutes walk to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. All that for 65,-€ per night incl. breakfast. When I go to Istanbul next time together with my wife I will definitely book the Garden House again.
D'un refuge pour les êtres paisibles
Si vous êtes à la recherche d'un endroit reposant au milieu de l'immense turbulence istambulienne, voici là le chemin menant à mon petit jardin secret.
La maison se compose d'une dizaine de chambres extrêmement confortables (Je comptabilise 40 heures de sommeil sur trois nuitées). Un jardin d'artifices, un regard discret sur la plus charmante des mosquées inconnues de la métropole.
Ajoutez à cela, un personnel hors pair, doux et sincèrement agréable, un personnel qui connaît le sens véritable du mot hospitalité.
Après avoir passé le début de mon séjour dans les grands hôtels hors de prix et grassement embourgeoisés, ceci sera la découverte abordable et plus que recommandable que je puis partager.
Sachez qu'à mon habitude je ne recommande rien. Encore moins mes découvertes personnelles. Je fais ici écart à ma règle pour la bonne raison que ce lieu demande à se faire connaître.
Mon honnête reconnaissance pour ce petit hôtel de la rive asiatique
Really a great hospitality, the hotel is so new and the garden is the perfect location for the breakfast.
Room clean and spacious, in an optimus position to reach all the main monuments.
The staff will help you in the organization of your say, giudes, tours and all that you'll need.
To be suggested !!!
Perfect Hotel for a citytrip
I stayed in this hotel with a colleague/friend for 1 week. We had asked for some preferences at the booking time and they were all fullfilled. The hotel is small (only 14 rooms) but very cosy. The room we had was spacious, very clean and very nice decorated. Cleaning service everyday is impeccable, the staff is very helpful and tries to assist you as much as possible, in fact nothing is "impossible" for them. It's a pity that most of them (there are only 3 - 5 staff) don't speak at all or only little english, except for the head receptionist. If you have a laptop, you have wireless internet in your room free of charge. In the reception there is also internet available. The small breakfast buffet was very nice and there is enough variety. It's impossible to leave the breakfast table still hungry. It is very nice to have your breakfast outside in the nice garden. The hotel is small (only 14 rooms) but offers peace and privacy. If your daily working life is very busy and hectic (like we have), this hotel is perfect to recover and to enjoy the peaceful and quiet environment. Still the major attractions are close and within walking distance.
We really enjoyed our stay and recommend this hotel without hesitation. Price/quality balance is excellent! I don't have any pictures to upload, but the pictures you see in the booking sites are realistic.
Wonderful ! !
The hotel was reserved by one of my friends and it was 3rd time I would be visiting Istanbul. Since this time I was not very happy about the services of the hotels I have stayed. But this was more than I have expected. The Staff, service, food, garden and peaceful atmosphere was absolutely wonderful .. What else a traveller would expect from a hotel.
And the location, I could not imagine better than this one. It is almost next to Blue mosque and Topkapi Palace just a little walk away from the hotel.
I would highly recommend this hotel to all kind of travellers even to the business travellers since it is placed in a location that you can access to all destinations easily.
I was pleased to find a hotel like this in the old town and it will be my choice when I come to Istanbul. The only thing is the hotel have little room count and that people have to reserve in advance to be sure to have a room.
Per un piacevolissimo soggiorno a Istanbul
Abbiamo trascorso un ottimo soggiorno al Garden House: posizione buona vicino a tutte le attrazioni; edificio recentemente ristrutturato, per cui tutto è nuovo; personale estremamente gentile e disponibile; camere molto pulite e curatissime in tutti i particolari.
La zona è tranquilla e silenziosa, in mezzo a molti altri alberghi.
E' possibile consumare molto piacevolmente i pasti nel grazioso giardino dell'albergo, dove vengono cotti alla brace davanti agli occhi buonissimi pesci e bistecche.
Insomma, albergo molto raccomandato.
Beautiful, quiet and friendly
We stayed for 4 nights in the Garden House in Istanbul. Very new and clean hotel,
comfortable rooms (tastefully) and very near The Blue Mosque (5 min)
Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Nice, quiet area in Sultanamet
Wonderful Place -- Even Better than Dersaadet (its Sister Hotel)
Stayed here April 20, 2006 for one night. This is the sister hotel to Hotel Dersaadet. We stayed at both hotels on this trip and found Garden Hotel was actually better of the two. Liked it so much we stayed for two more nights at the end of our trip. The staff could not be more kind or helpful! The rooms are immaculate and it is very quiet. The complimentary breakfast is quite good also. Don't hesitate -- stay here!
