Reviewed December 4, 2013

We decided to book this very new hotel in spite of it having few reviews. We had an extremely pleasant stay. The location could not have been better; near all the major sites, close to public transportation and with access to the newer section of the city across the bridge. The staff was unfailingly friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. The breakfast buffet was quite generous with something for everyone. If you stay in a room that fronts the street, there will be street noise as the tram line runs in front of the hotel, but you might have a balcony.

Room Tip: Avoid the front of the hotel if you are bothered by street noise.

Our first time in Istanbul and and we had all the jitters especially choosing the right hotel. But the hotel was a very pleasant and amazing blessing. Clean aircon rooms and bedsheets, very clean bathrooms although the twin room was a bit tight for our big luggage. Great and safe location to walk around on our own. Very accessible to all the historic sites in the old city and an easy walk to the harbour. And the best -were the English speaking staff of the hotel- especially to lovely Arvu (manager). They regularly went out of their way to take care of us and assisted us to get the necessary shuttle or taxis. The tram line in front of the hotel wasn't a bother at all..it added to the uniqueness of the old city. Will definitely stay in this boutique hotel in the future

Room Tip: We had a 3rd floor twin room facing the main street. Nice cozy view. The tram does not travel late...

The hotel was in one of the best location in town,,,close to all the historic sites and the harbour. The room and the common area were very tidy with excellent service. The best part was the bathroom. Hot shower in the morning sets you up for a big day ahead. I will highly recommend this hotel.

We spent two nights in this hotel and i can say only positive things about service, staff and atmoshpere. definetelly i will go back to this hotel whenever i will decide to spend more days in istanbul.
Many thanks to Serif, he was very helpful every time we asked him for assistance, gave clear recomendations and advises. So I would also advise everyone who wants to stay near all the tourustic places to pick this nice hotel for their stay. One more good thing is that tramway stop is 50 m away from the hotel.

After I spent one night in a dump of a hotel, I found this one which had excellent reviews. I spent the rest of my vacation there and was thrilled with the service, cleanliness, great breakfast buffet, modern bathroom and perfect location for the interesting places to visit in the old city of Istanbul. The reception was very helpful to book trips, get some dry cleaning arranged and even went out of there way to make me a sandwich very early in the morning before the breakfast room opened.
I can highly recommend this hotel.

We are coming from HK and didn't make booking from online.
Initailly, we guessed there was easy to get a hotel for staying 2 nights in Istanbul.
However, we tried around 10 hotels and there were no rooms or the prices was very high as well.

Finally, we found Black Tulip Hotel wihich close to the Train station and just on the main street for inquriy. The first insight was good since the Receiption are very poliet and help for checking everything for us.

After discussing with my husband and we decided to stay here for our final station of our trip.

The hotel is very new and just opened in Sep 2013, the room not so big but everything was complete with nothing missing.

There Breakfast really amazing and full of both Trukish and Western styles.

We are speical thank you for the receiption "Ersin" who is the most helpful and nice guys during our trip. He help us everything and gave many good advice. We both love him and this Hotel very much.
