The staff was very friendly, and helped out in numerous situations even going beyond what you'd expect of them. Breakfast is good, rooms were clean and neat. The hotel is in walking distance of the major sights in the old city center of Istanbul. However, getting there requires crossing a pedestrian bridge over old train lines, and the area it... More

We stayed for 4 nights in the Lalinn Hotel in early May. While the hotel is near some of the major sites (e.g., Blue Mosque), it is located a short way away from the main tourist area in a somewhat run-down mostly residential area. We appreciated being a little off the main tourist hotel area (while not too far out).... More

We are a family of 4, and stayed at the Lalinn for 5 nights. Staff from management, housekeeping and breakfast preparers were great. Both Hayrettin and Coskun were an immense help while we were there. The location is convenient and the locals are always willing to help. Would definitely go back to Lalinn.

I stayed here a couple nights a few weeks ago and it is a great hotel. It's small enough to have a personal/exclusive feel to it but close enough to the tourist attractions that you can easily walk to any of them. You can hear the call to prayer so well here as well- which is a great way to... More

We had booked our 1st four nights of Turkey trip that we had planned to spend in Istanbul in this Hotel primarily based on the reviews in Trip Advisor and what appeared to be bigger sized bed rooms from the Hotel's website pictures. I had booked a Triple room for us ( 2+1) almost two months in advance. However the... More

Only stayed one night on the way out of Turkey. Conveniently located to everything, excellent size room, caring owner. Spotlessly clean. Genuine location a little (5 minutes) away from the tourist places.
