My friend and I stayed at the Tulip for one week and had a great time. It's a guesthouse which I warmly recommend it to travellers of any age.
The location of Tulip is excellent, just a short walk from Topkapi, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. There are restaurants around the corner but if you want you can just hop on a tram and go to another area for your dinner. The tram stop is just a short walk away as well.
Loved the breakfast there, didn't even get bored of it after one week. The lady who prepares the breakfast is very sweet and the food and tea lovely. Just the thing to get you started with the day. The views from the breakfast room are also very beautiful.
Our room was located on the first floor so on the first night I had trouble sleeping when people were coming and going. This was solved by earplugs and after that I had no problems to sleep.
Our rooms were cute and small with a private bathroom which was excellent. It was also very clean which I personally find an important criteria when choosing a place to stay.
The staff is all very charming, friendly and helpful, do remember to ask them for advice on where to go :)
I loved Tulip and already miss it, so if I ever return, I will stay here again!!
