This was a nice little hotel, very conveniently located within walking distance of many tourist attractions. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was nice, and served outside on the terrace. Because this hotel is located on a small street, there may be some noise from kids playing and people yelling, but only during the... More

This hotel is the whole package: great staff (everyone is really friendly and they speak excellent English), nice breakfast, comfortable room, good location, no traffic noise and a view over the ocean! Everything was perfectly fine!

It took a bit of finding, so I got there later than I promised - no problem at all. The reception staff invited me to sit in the lounge, have tea, and relax before inspecting the room. It was clean, tidy, well furnished but still spacious. There was a TV, desk, wardrobe, chairs, bedside cabinets, and a very very comfortable... More

I was nervous staying in a budget hotel but felt immediately reassured upon my arrival. The staff all spoke excellent English and couldn't have done anything more to make my stay a success. I took a room on the 4th floor with a balcony and a beautiful view over the water. The rooms have everything you need to be comfortable... More

Our stay in Tulip House was fine, although there were some flaws. First of all, the hotel is REALLY noisy. I mean, you can hear everything happening behind the closed door: coughing, laughing, talking, etc. Besides, our room was situated right next to the terrace exit, and starting from 7.30 AM we were woken up by the door banging and...

During my few last days of my Istanbul trip, i chose to stay at Hotel Tulip House . It was a wise decision to stay in this hotel. This cosy boutique hotel is definitely not to be missed when you visit Istanbul. Although it is away from the hassle and noise from the streets. The room, with a spectacular view... More

We spent 4 nights at Tulip house this November. It was our second time visiting Istanbul. The guesthouse is really centrally located, just a few steps from the main square of the Blue Mosque in Sultanahmet. We were given the basement room, which to be honest, could have done with a bit more cleaning. Towels were ok as well as... More

We stayed at Hotel Tulip House for 3 nights at the end of November. All staff there was always very helpful in every aspect. We had a double with balcony overlooking the Bosporus and some mosques, very beautiful. Our room was very clean as was the bathroom with a brilliant shower, big soft towels and also a hairdryer. The breakfast... More
