I have stayed only one night in Tulip City Hotel during my trip to Turkey. I have selected this hotel because of the perfect location, minutes away from shopping street Istiklal Caddesi, 15 min from Taksim Square and within walking distance to all gay party places in this area.
Hotel provides valet car parking free of charge. When I arrived my car was taken and parked by hotel staff. When you enter hotel's lobby you can see that this is something special, unusual and unique, but in a very nice way. Mix of weird lamps, mirrors, metal elements, glass and furniture. Really great design. Check-in was quick, professional and efficient.
My room was a little bit too small and with two beds (I've booked double) and quite dark. Again nicely designed, fancy and chique, but you cannot see that properly - lightning is absolutely terrible and room is far too dark. The same with bathroom. That would be so much nicer experience if you could see all these pieces properly.
Room was equipped with easy and quiet air condition, flat-screen TV, safety deposit box, kettle & selection of tees/coffees and mini-bar (acceptable prices).
Free Wi-Fi Internet access is provided, password given at the time of checking-in. Good, constant connection.
Bathroom was too dark, but spotless clean. Good quality toiletries and fresh towels provided.
In the morning buffet breakfast was served downstairs. Great selection of local cheeses, fruits, snacks, bread and other meals. I just hated artificial squash drink instead of juice.
I have to admit, that staff in the hotel was always very helpful and was dealing with me with natural smile and professional way. Even after check-in, when I was waiting for my car... It took a little bit longer, because hotel's driver crashed my car... I know that accidents happen, but they should be more careful. They sort it out with my car rental company, but it cost me additional 2-3 hours together, which was a little bit inconvenient. But as I said - they did their best and I appreciate that. Hopefully that will not happen again.
Even with that not pleasant last experience, I would come back to this hotel as it was really great and comfortable place to stay. Fantastic location, trendy design, helpful staff and good price - that's why my rating score is 4+. I didn't use additional facilities like hammed (I had some other accident earlier), but I've heard it's worth to visit as well.
