“Great value, you'll love the breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Good stay here for values. Room was on the smaller side, but very functional. Highlight for me was the breakfast, which was upstairs with a great view, plenty of food, and it was all fresh. Good location close to the big sites. People were friendly. Only thing is that's it's a bit difficult to find, but don't let that stop you from staying here.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

Welcoming, kindly and nice, for any problems and request ask them and they will help you (they even suggested me a good coiffeur). In perfect position to visit all the principal monuments, near the stops of public transports. Good ratio quality/price.

Tulip guesthouse has a very friendly staff and the location is perfect in the centre of Sultanahmet. We had a room on the top floor where also the breakfast room is with a nice view on the Bosphorus. The rooms are cosy equipped and the location makes it very silent at night.

Spent a good 8 days at this hostel. Very friendly staff, nice turkish breakfast, good pricing, clean rooms and very close to the center of Sultanahmet (Blue mosque, Aya Sophia ...). The Tulip Guesthouse provided us with valuable input on where to go, what was expensive and which locations to prioritize. We also got a good input on the local turkish customs and cuisine.

Good value, and clean room. I enjoyed my 3 day stay and the family's hospitality! It was within walking distance to the blue mosque, aya Sophia and a small bazaar. Lots of things to do without taking a taxi. I really enjoyed my stay and I look forward to returning with my family. I had expensive camera equipment in my room and had no issues. Excellent value, and a fantastic rooftop view!

excellent located guesthouse with just a few minutes walking to the main attractions topkapi palace, blue mosque und hagia sophia. turkish breakfast included with coffee, tea, bread, honey, jelly, fresh fruit, vegetables, cake etc. with terrific view on marmara sea. for us, it was the perfect start every day to explore sultanahmet. staff is very helpful and friendly - thanks for the comforting stay. don't expect luxury, but a really nice place for travellers like us, who want to come home to a relaxing and quiet place. btw. a little green market with decent prices is right in front of the house.

We stayed at Tulip guesthouse for 3 nights in Istanbul.
The location is perfect, in the middle of Sultanameht which is the old part of Istanbul.
Very friendly people in the reception and great breakfast.
This place also have an excellent view at the Bosphurus.
