Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Hotel Tulip House was clean and the staff was friendly, personable, and most helpful. Each of the staff, including the owner called me by name each time I saw them, which was a very nice personal twist. Breakfast was very good--a large selection of fruits and other things to choose from. We had a choice of eating our breakfast inside the dining area or outside on the terrace, which was lovely. The hotel is located within walking distance from some of the places anyone coming to Istanbul for the first time would want to see such as the Blue Mosque, the HO-HO Bus (Hop on Hop off bus), etc. There are also many wonderful restaurants in the area. I will stay there again the next time I am in Istanbul.

This hotel is very convenient to the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque. There is one small hill to walk up and then the street is level until you reach the Hippodrome. The staff is helpful, friendly, attentive. Breakfast was good, lots to choose from. The bed was very comforable and the room was clean and large. Wi-fi was fast. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for 4 nights in our trip to Istanbul as a referral from a good friend.

The free airport pick up was a great and made our arrival much easier as the hotel is roughly 60 mins from the Airport.

Our room was good, clean, cosy with air conditioning, mini-fridge and cable TV. Though I had trouble find English speaking channels!

While the room was small, the bathroom was very adequate with plenty of hot water. We faced the street and being within a 5 minute walk from the Blue Mosque the daily prayers can be heard clearly.

The breakfast was included in our price and we ate it on a nice terrace, overlooking the sea and a beautiful mosque. The food was good and had a great selection of fruits and bread. Tea, coffee and fresh juices were also included.

The hotel is very nicely located, on walking distance from all the major attractions, including the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome and the Hagia Sophia. That makes it a good base for exploring the city on foot. There's a lot of small cafes in the area and also a good selection of restaurants to choose from.

Hotel Tulip House is a good place to stay in Istanbul, nicely located, with good and comfortable rooms and a tasty breakfast. I do recommend it and probably will stay there again when I return to Istanbul.

I booked this hotel because my brother in law recommended it and he was right, a very cosy hotel with real friendly staff. The staff were very helpfull and told us what the possibilities were and where they were located including a few good restaurants.The hotel is located not even a 10 min. walk from the Blue Mosque so very central. The breakfast was nice with fresh fruit and several Turkish dishes as well. All in all it made our trip to Istanbul an unforgettable one.
All the more reason to go back to this beautiful city and book the same hotel again!!!

we booked through the hotel directly as they offered a free airport pickup if u resereved 7 nights. and they were there on time, it's a little bit hard to reach there if it's ur first time! they wellcomed us very warmly and they offered to upgrade the room for us but for just 2 nights (availibilty wise) but we prefered to stay in our standard room to avoid packing :) but we loved the offer..
first of all the staff is the secret of that place, the hotel is 2* but they are 5* rated. very helpful and friendly.
the breakfast was good but fixed all the days :)
no elevator with tiny stairs, but don't worry u will find the help.
the room is basic but good enough for budgeted trip. with high speed internet

overall i loved my stay there :) recommended
