Great Place to Stay -Rindge Leaphart review
Posted Jun 21, 2015
Rose Garden is a boutique hotel that is minutes(10-15) away (walking distance) from major tourist attractions you would want to see in the area. Additionally the tram is also minutes away, allowing you to visit other areas. The hotels offers the best of the new world as well as the old world. New world - walk in shower, tv, wifi, free breakfast, nice towels. Old world - wood floors, marble bathroom floors, gold leaf decorated ceilings, real wood furniture, terrace view, audible call to prayer from Mosques.
If you want to be in the middle of Istanbul and close to Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, etc and other attractions, then you can't go wrong with this hotel. Great staff, great hotel, great location. If you have trouble walking then you may want to avoid this hotel because there is a hill, not a major issue, but I would avoid if I had trouble walking.
Try to reserve a room with a terrace view, they cost more but are worth the money,
