Lausos was a surprisingly small hotel, and felt more like a bed and breakfast than anything else. The location is very good in Sultanahmet and close to many touristic attractions in Istanbul. However, the boutiquey-ness of the property is lost on me as the amenities fell short. I had the "Ottoman" room and while it was a nice corner view... More

Chose this hotel because of reviews here, and the location. The hotel is not a 5 star hotel, but i give my rating based on value for money. The location is perfect. You can walk to most of the mayor sights like Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Grand bazar etc. The wifi works, the rooms are nice and clean and the... More

This small, boutique hotel is located just steps away from all of the main attractions in the Sultanahmet district. It is clean and comfortable with simply superb service. My room was a bit small--but that was not an issue as I spent very little time there. Sleep quality is great--very quiet neighborhood. A special thanks to Mustafa, the manager: Thank... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic. The hotel is within 2 minutes walk of the hippodrome and the Blue Mosque and 5 minutes from the Agia Sophia and the Cistern. There are plenty of good places to eat and shop nearby and it is close to the tram stop. The staff were very helpful and informative. It is very... More

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in what feels like a lovely cozey hotel. The rooms are pristine and clean. Staff are what really makes the hotel. Mehmet, Musa and Mustafa work at the hotel and were extremely helpful and friendly. To be honest they make the holiday very memorable!

This hotel was our choice due to the central location rigth at the historical sites (A.Sofia and Blue Mosce and close to the Bazar. Very nice and service minded people. The hotel is not a totally new super construction in steel and glass (old rugs on the floor and not so many rooms) but the rooms are clean and well... More

Although the location, hotel and staff are good, the management is UNREASONABLY INFLEXIBLE and UNFAIR. Midway through my stay the entire hotel lost running water due to a plumbing problem. After being assured that it would be repaired shortly I decided to tough it out. However, after two days without a shower, limited breakfast options, and a fowl smelling room... More

The staff at the Lausos Hotel is friendly, helpful, and speak English quite well. We had no problems communicating. The price (Nov. 2014) of Euro 105 for a top floor suite is not the lowest price for a room in Istanbul off season, but the view can not be beat at this price. A photo of room 503 shows the... More
