Reviewed 3 December 2013

We spent 6 nights in Tulip Guesthouse and have only best memories of our stay there.
Esin and Tamara are great people.
Nice breakfast, I miss the olives and rose jam)they were the best there.
can't imagine the better location, close to Sofia and the sea is 3 minutes walk.

We stayed for three nights, the room was spacious and comfortable. Very clean and tidy with a good en-suite shower room. Breakfast was varied and delicious, with a lovely view towards the Bosphorus. The staff are delightful and extremely helpful, answering our many questions. The location on a very safe and quiet little street within a 5min walk of the main sights of Sultanahmet Square. Thank you so much to all the staff for a wonderful stay in this fantastic city.

We spent five nights in the Tulip Gueshouse at the end of our trip to Turkey. Our room was wonderfully clean, comfortable and quiet, if a little on the small side. And the staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. The location was terrific, in Sultanahmet, Istanbul's most historic district. We were near to Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, the Basilica Cistern, the tram line, good restaurants, etc. For a tourist, it's hard to argue against staying in Sultanahmet. It's the part of the city where most of the attractions that draw tourists are located.

Breakfasts were plentiful and good, with such things as hard-cooked eggs, yogurt, honey, breads, cheeses, olives, cereal, jams and preserves (really GOOD jams and preserves), coffee, tea and probably several other things I'm forgetting. Breakfast is included in the room rate.

Breakfast was served in a room whose outside wall was all windows, with incredible views over the Bosphorous and part of the city. The room my wife and I had was just down the hall from the breakfast room and, after long mornings of sightseeing, or in the evenings, we'd sit for a while in the breakfast room and enjoy the view while doing a little reading, planning our next moves or playing a little cards. It was a great place to relax.

Only downside: Our room was on the top floor, and the guesthouse has no elevators. We carried our luggage up a narrow circular staircase. But that was the ONLY downside to the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with their own bath cost a little more, but are worth it. The hotel is full much of the year...

This little guesthouse in Istanbul is a great budget choice if you don't mind small rooms. Very clean and the room is cleaned each day for you. Even the bathroom fully scrubbed. Breakfast is served daily and it has quite a nice selection of different traditional and western options, fruit and coffee and tea. The owner/manager is very helpful and aiming to please and make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! Free wi-fi.

We were looking for a decent budget accommodation in Sultanahmet area and found this. It was small but a quite, neat and clean guesthouse. It has an excellent location, very close to Blue Mosque, Tapoki palace and the street next to it has plenty of restaurants and a few convenience stores. A few of these restaurants are on the rooftops and have excellent views of the town and the sea. The guesthouse is well managed by Esin. They also serve a good breakfast.
