This is a nice hotel if you are on a budget but don't want to slum it. The rooms are nice and comfortable and the WiFi works well enough. The staff is also very helpful and can arrange for you a shuttle bus from the hotel at a reasonable price. The Breakfast is really tasty but then again that seems... More

We stayed here for an excellent rate for 3 nights. It is right in the heart of the Old Town of Istanbul. Basically walking distance to all the sights! The hotel staff were excellent, our room was extremely spacious, cleaned daily and breakfast was complimentary and more than substantial!

I came back and brought family. Omar greeted us with coffee and "chai" and good advice. It was the end of Bayram and the city was busy. My room 501 overlooked the roofs of this residential neighborhood two blocks from the hippodrome and the Blue Mosque. The children below played in the warm evenings (and occasionally had minor squabbles). I... More

It's been great being in this hotel. I absolutely love the warm atmosphere and host. The location is pretty close to the two major tram stations and is good for walking tour in city. Also the host is really friendly to help the customers with the tour spots.

I had chosen sultanahmet area because I wanted a quiet neighbourhood away from the hustle of the city. And Hotel Tulip House was just the right place for me. It's located conveniently in the heart of the area and walking distance to all the major attractions, restaurants and the beautiful Hippodrome. The rooms are sufficiently large and spacious. It has... More

The location is just perfect, only 5 or 10 min walking to most of the major attractions like blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Basilic Cistern, etc. The room is very clean, overviewing the sea, and the breakfast area is just lovely, with cute tables and flowers, with nice view and very delicious food. Staff is great, they will help you with... More

We stayed in the budget room which is underneath the reception area. There was no view out the window only of the alleyway outside. The room was quite basic but an ok base after a busy day sightseeing. The people were all very friendly here and breakfast was a nice continental buffet, the view from the upper deck where breakfast... More
