“Great Loaction, Clean Beds, Internet Connection... what more could you ask for??”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

Tulip guesthouse offers a good location in Sultanahmet area (old Istanbul) with clean beds and Free Internet connection. It is of 5 mins walk from the main attractions in Istanbul as well as the Sultanahmet Tram station which can take you wherever you want. You are also offered a drive to the airport for 5 euros/person which was quite cheap and punctual might i add (but this service is pretty much offered by all the "hotels" in this area). Helpful staff although the reception is not 24/7 sometime not at all.

But i would have to point out that even though June is considered to be the high season in Istanbul, paying 240 euros for 4 nights for a double room (which could be easily described as a single room due to its small size) is a bit pricey for the guesthouse.

Overall, if you are looking for a well located, clean B&B, Tulip Guesthouse is recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for the Double Room Sea View and make sure you are on the second floor

We agree with all reviews about location but the value was in question. Seemed quite pricey for what we got. The rooms are clean but bathroom was very musty, and tattery. Very small rooms, nowhere to open a suitcase. We had a very early morning and asked for a wakeup call but didn't get it, thank goodness we had a backup alarm. The lady in the breakfast room wasvery nice but every day wasthe same food.

small, famillial and clean hostel in the middle of sultanahmed with a nice bosporus-view in a quiet one-way street. 5-10 minutes walk from topkapi, hagia sofia, the sultanahmed-mosque and the tramway-station to all the other great parts of istanbul. the staff is chilled and very friendly.
great hostel in a great city :)

Excellent location, only a 5 minute walk from Aya Sofia and Sultanahmet. Average facilities noticeably budget but at least clean. We didn't get Wifi in our room (private room on ground floor). To be fair they had just gone through some renovations. Young staff that were helpful and accommodated our late check-out. There were a few other budget locations in the area, that said, we were happy with this one.

This small guesthouse is in the old town very near several of the main historic sites - the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the Topkapi Palace,and is ideal for people on a budget who still want good, basic comfortable facilities. We stayed in the double with sea view (just) and the room is small but clean and only has a few cosmetic problems (two small holes in the wall where light fittings have been removed) and in the bathroom the toilet is not very securely fixed to the wall! The breakfast was simple but full of fresh local produce and is on the second floor with very good views, though the room is small so you may have to share a table.

Room Tip: Double with sea view ideal for couples
