Great hotel in 5 minutes from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet tram station. Rooms are clean and cozy. You'll have a breakfast on a top floor with a sea view. Staff is friendly and helpful. I'd say you won't find a better hotel for this price in Istanbul. Highly recommended!

A very friendly gauest house with staff that is welcoming, helpful and quick to react to any request. The manager is very kind. Due to the location of the guest house all the major sights are accessible in matter of minutes. I can recommend it to all.

We stayed for 6 nights at Tulip. First you will notice it's more like small hotel, not quite guesthouse. Rooms are not big but it's more than enough for two persons. Both room and bathroom were very clean, personel is very friendly and willing to help you with any issue. Very decent breakfast is on top floor, with nice view on Bosphorus and Asian side.
Location is perfect, some 100 meters from Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya, in very quit street.
Great value for money, highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights in December 2013/January 2013. The location is perfect for all the touristy sights, beds are very comfortable, breakfast is traditional and yummy, and hot water is plentiful! The staff was super sweet and accommodating - and were always available when needed. Only cons: the rooms are very small (like, besides the bed, only 1 open suitcase will fit in the room) and the bathrooms are quite cold.

My wife and I stayed at Tulip Guesthouse for three nights during our visit to Istanbul. The location is absolutely superb! Within walking distance you can visit some of the major attractions of Istanbul. Although the room was rather small, the bed was very comfortable and all was kept meticulously clean with fresh towels every day. We really liked the breakfast on the top floor with a view of the Bosporus. In short: great value for money and wonderful staff!

First the pros: Location is excellent, the cleaning lady and the other young assistant are delightful. The breakfast is also pretty good. This is more like a hostel with private rooms than a guest house.
Cons: Be very careful with the stairs they are dangerous. The bathroom was like a refrigerator and there are wires sticking out of the wall. Walls are tissue thin, can hear everything that goes on. The manager acts very strange. Every morning, watches the guests during breakfast. Only place in Turkey we've ever seen that. When tried to engage in conversation, was very cold. Also, when she discovered that our airport transfer was booked through another agency (one she advertises on her front desk!) and that it was only going to be 20 Euros total, she said that the ones she arranged were the same price. That's interesting. The e-mail she sent us prior to our arrival says: "We can arrange a pick up from Sabiha Gokcen Airport. It costs 55 Euro for the private car (up to 4 people)."
