It was an terrible holiday here, i stayed here only 2 nights and it was enough. Small beds, uncomfortable rooms and and infect breakfast, i would better eat cardboard(only if it wasnt cardboard). The staff was unfriendly, the reception slow and the tea and coffe was mostly water. I reccomend you any other hotel except this one. Also the TV didnt work and the bathroom smelled.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms.

This hotel has a historical location. Its street represents the hybrid istanbul life. But its very close to blue mosque and coastal side. Rooms are very clean and equipped. Owners of hotel are two young turkish women. Reception concerner speaks russian english french and arabic. We stay at 4th floor and scenery was amazing. Besides these its very cheap for a city hotel especially for city of istanbul.

Room Tip: 3 and 4 floors have sea view .

Only spent 1 night here, having been placed here by their 'sister' hotel (Recital Hotel) through a booking error on the part of Recital. This is really a tiny bed and breakfast and not a hotel. Located in Sultanahmet and walking distance from Caddesi Divayolu. Staff is very nice and do their best with what they have to work with. Visited at the end of June 2012 and some of the rooms did not have working air conditioning. The rooms are very, very basic and looks unfinished. If I stayed there any longer, I definitely would not have enjoyed it. It's not ready for international travellers, which is a shame because there is some potential. What made this not a great experience, is that my group was placed here because of a booking error on the part of and we were charged the SAME rate as Recital!!! Absolutely insane. Ottoman Tulip is not worth that! No breakfast, we changed rooms b/c of the AC. We were told that there were double beds available but when we got there, there were only single beds!! If you are on a tight budget, have no other, options and the price is right and you don't mind roughing it, then stay here. If you want to enjoy Istanbul, there are lots of other places to pick from. This place is unfinished and cannot be considered even 3 stars. The staff needs to be better organized and should have a clear checkout policy.

The hotel is smack in the middle of Old Istanbul and may be tricky to find among the narrow streets...BUT as soon as you enter, you know you're in for pleasant surprises. When we checked in, we were treated right away to a simple yet delicious breakfast. As we went into the room, it was as expected (based on the pictures online) in terms of the subdued decor but still with a Turkish feel. We were initially billeted for the sea view room (nice view too!) but because my mom couldn't make it up the steep, circular steps to the 4th level, we were transferred to the 1st level. The manager and the staff were very understanding of this need as they quickly made the changes and fast-tracked their cleaning of a room.

For those on budget, you must book with this boutique hotel that is affordable yet with class. However, if you are not physically fit, you might have difficulty if you will be given a room on the 3rd or 4th level. In spite of the language difficulty, the managers and staff are accommodating and willing to help as needed.
