Very friendly staff. Always make advances to guests, even if they ask for coffee at 7 am. Great location - to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia - 5 minutes walk. Clean and comfortable rooms. Small breakfast room on top floor with view on Bosphorus. But in morning and evening, there is a problem with the hot water. Have time... More

I suggest to everyone to choose this guesthouse because good price and good staff. Bathroom is cleaned everyday. Rooms also. Советуем всем! Цена и хороший персонал! До площади Султанахмет 5 минут ходьбы! До набережной 5 минут! Атмосфера просто супер!

I loved my stay in the Tulip Guesthouse in Istanbul in the summer of 2014. The Tulip is ideally located in Istanbul, right in the heart of the ancient city, five minutes' walk from the Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet. It is in a quiet street, with two other guesthouses, but only around the corner, one stree back from Akbiyik Cd... More

We stayed at tulip for 2 nights and it was great! The room was certainly no frills, but it did the trick. Breakfast was simple but served with house made jams, which were awesome. My only criticism (and it is a minor one) is that the room was a little cold as we were there in March. But it is... More

From start to finish (well, except from the very start when we were hauling our bags around trying to find the hotel), we enjoyed our stay at Tulip Guesthouse. The young woman who greeted us continued to provide wonderful hospitality during our time there and really added to the experience. The location was fantastic - close walk to attractions like...

We stayed 5 nights in the large double room on the first floor at the end of the hallway. It was comfortable, spotless, spacious and bright. Breakfasts were excellent and the view from the breakfast room was wonderful. The location can't be beat - the main sights in the Sultanhamet area are just a 5-minute walk. Staff were friendly, welcoming... More

Great stay at Tulip Guesthouse. Fantastic location, just behind the Sultanhamet area. Very close to all the historic tourist sites and the grand bazaar, and in a charming neighborhood (especially when you go to the side streets behind the guesthouse). Walking distance to the metro...so only a few minutes on the train to Taksim or Karakoy or the ferry dock.... More

我在伊斯坦布尔住过最好的旅馆。老板人很好,真的帮到我们很多。之前老板通过私人关系帮我们订到了最后几张巴士票,我们在旅馆落下了很重要的资料,老板也帮我们保存的很好。很推荐! Best hotel in town. The reception staffs are really nice and helpful. He helped us to get last minute bus ticket and kept well our lost documents. Highly recommended!

My favorite guest house in Instanbul. The Tulip Guest House is a five minute walk to the Blue Masque, Agi Sophia, Topaki palace, and the Cistern. Restraunts are just one block away that serves local favorites and those of other countries. Also close by is the entrance to the port. From the hotel you can see the activity of both... More
