The staff here are wonderful! They helped take care of everything we needed. Ms. Esin even helped us call to confirm reservations for another location in Goreme. The rooms are cozy and clean with modern private bathrooms. Breakfast was always good with a nice assortment of fruit, veggies, eggs, cereal, and olives. We would definitely stay here again!!

The night we stayed in Tulip Guesthouse was a nightmare. I went to Istanbul to meet my boyfriend, he had to work at nightshift so he always tried to choose the safe place for me to live alone. We thought Tulip could be a OK choice even though the way from Sultanamet back to Tulip is dark and the curtain... More

Great location near the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Arasta Bazaar, and other old city sites. Quiet, and on a quiet street, but near the action. Very reasonable prices, especially for the location. Clean, comfortable room – firm bed, spotless bathroom. Ample breakfast in a nice top-floor room with a view. Very friendly and informative staff with great advice on places... More

If you don't mind small rooms, being in the core of the Istanbul culture centre is a big plus. Beautiful Turkish self-service breakfast with the view and extremely helpful stuff is the reason I will return soon.

Believe me, it's hard to find a better location at a cheaper price in Istanbul. You are at a walking distance from the Blue Mosque, the St. Sophie Museum and the Topkaki Palace without being on a noisy street. And the owners speak a good English (which is a rarity in Turkey) and are very helpful. The place was clean... More
