i booked the hotel because of all the good reviews, but it wasn't as good as everyone says. first of all, the rooms were so small you don't even have a place to put your luggage. the bathroom was so small that i could hardly turn around. the worst part was that they turn off the heater during the day,...

I stayed 4 nights there, and enjoyed. Esin welcomed me very friendly and left me a bright room on the first floor giving on the street ...and very quiet. The hotel is very clean, rooms are made every day with a new towel each time. Breakfast is tasty and abundant, I really appreciated. Tea or coffee was also available during... More

The rooms smelled like bleach and fresh linen, the rooms are spotless. The front desk manager spent 1hr helping us with an itinerary, bus schedule, and local recommendations. Super friendly and helpful and walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Sofia, the Palace. Strong WiFi, excellent traditional breakfast with a nice view. Would recommend.

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
