Tulip By Molton Hotels
Ranked #699 of 1,163 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 23 October 2012

I have been here a lot of times, alone on busines trip and once with my wife and some friends. the location is perfect for visiting the area north of the Golden Horn (Galata, Ortakoy etc), surrounded by the 19th century city, hundreds of restaurants and beautiful bars etc. You can also easily walk to Sultanhamet crossing the Galata Bridge. The Hotel is small, quiet, rooms are comfortable (no luxury at all !). Breakfast is very good.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room on the back

My family and I stayed at Pera Tulip for 6 nights. The hotel staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfast selection was reasonable and the kitchen staff had warm hospitality. Overall the room sizes were standard but it accommodated everthing you needed e.g. AC, TV, minibar. Also you were entertained in the bathroom with a small TV attached. The decoration was modern clean and had a gothic theme.The manager Abdullah was always willing to help because he arranged us to plan two day tours visiting Istanbul with Plan Tours. There was one day in the week which we had nothing planned for but despite being busy with three hotels to manage. Abdullah helped us to visit Ortakoy Pier which was overlooking Asia from Europe. The views were stunning and also we visited the Cevahir Shopping Mall which was grand!! They had over 224 stalls and six floors. If I plan Istanbul again in the future I will book again with this hotel. All staff were helpful and made our stay memorable in Istanbul.

I think someone here wrote "faded glory", I remember, it was kind of true. It looks like it was very chic and trendy when it first opened, but now parts of the interior are a bit run down, like carpet in the hallway, and the spa/swimming pool (rusty parts and a bit of grimy feel to the spa area). But overall the rooms are clean and the one I stayed in was large. I think the best part was the breakfast. It was very good. good variety and service.
Anyway, it's not easy to find a hotel with swimming pool in this part of town, which I like the best, since it's near all the action for going out and shopping. If you're there to see the city life, this location is perfect.

Room Tip: i think the room I had was double room with a double bed. 20 square meters. the bathroom's smal...

Reception was great! (pickup at airport arranged via hotel) We really felt very welcome. Though the rooms were not the largest we were ever in, it had everything we needed, from nespresso to minibar, from toiletries to A/C. Staff was really helpfull and friendly though not all very fluent in English. The hotel is really at the best location in Istanbul. We were at the 6th floor at the balcony suite, very clean and quiet. Small SPA and fitness were suitable, breakfast not particularly impressive.

The hotel is difficult to find, with little signage, tucked between several
other hotels, in a street with many hotels with similar-sounding names. The rooms vary in size, but the smallest is pretty small -- a bed a desk and a bit of floor space. It has the basic amenities, including wifi
(yes, a bit slow, particularly dubious for skyping, but I have experienced the
same problems all over istanbul, including at 5-star hotels). There is an indoor pool, but it was closed every day I was there; also a small gym and a few other spa-related things (sauna) that I didn't test.

Most things about the hotel were standard, with a couple exceptions. First, the location is great: Walking distance to Taksim, close to the main pedestrian street, and even closer to a small set of alleys filled with restaurants and bars. Yet still very quiet.
Secondly, the service was fantastic. I had all sorts of trouble during my stay -- none of
the problems were caused
by this hotel, yet the staff took the time to solve them for me. E.g. in one case they spent a half-hour rescuing me when I lost my passport in the neighborhood. Who knows if you will need this kind of service, but to me it's worthwhile to go to a place that offers it.

The room size is the usual for a 4-star hotel in Istanbul, which means, small; the bathroom placement is also peculiar, and the overall quality reasonable.
Internet access exists, but speed is laughable (which means most sites can't even load).
Restaurant is nice, but without many options; food quality is acceptable.
Most staff has a hard time speaking english, with the exception of the people in the reception, which are able to manage the basic conversation.
Personally I do not recommend the hotel for business use, as it is located nearby the touristic part of Istanbul, and the noise is present 24/7, although it does have a metro station about 150 meters away; I do believe it can be a good choice for people wanting to know the city, and live the night life, but not having to wake up early in the morning to do business.

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry to hear that you had a voice problem from surrounding restaurants during your stay.

Our hotel is at the city center and most of the guests like the area near to lively Taksim.

Can you please send us e-mail and we will be glad to give you a room from quiet part of the hotel.

The Hotel was nice. At first sight, gives you a very positive impression. Location is excellent. 5 mins from Istiklal, very close to the train station and Galata Tower too is walking distance. For the price you pay, you think its a good deal only to realize the standard room is matchbox size with either a really small double bed (say 4.5ft x 6ft) or 2 really small twin beds. The entire room along with bathroom would be less than 10 x 10 sq. ft. For most of the rooms, you enter through the bathroom with basin on one side and shower and toilet section in the other. Weird isn't it!!! But the room interiors and amenities are of high standard and look posh.
The air conditioning could be an issue so check that first when you check-in. some of the rooms there was no cooling and the receptionist and technician stated that half the rooms that was the maximum it would cool which was very warm actually. We changed 3 rooms till finally got one where the air conditioning worked fine. Maybe they should price the standard rooms lower than their current price.
Overall i liked the hotel.

Room Tip: Don't book the Standard Room. Go for the next category room instead

Dear Sir/ Madam,


I was delighted to see that your stay was generally positive. I was disappointed to hear that you had a problem with room size. We are at the city center, so some of our rooms can be small but If you can send me e-mail one week prior your arrival I can pre bloke your rooms for your next visit.

We continuously strive to get better and it is through.
Once again thank you for your kind comments and we look forward to welcoming you back soon
