“Value if money, friendly helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

This was a fantastic find. Very affordable accommodation and excellent service. There was a mix up with our accommodation because of a cancelled flight. Upon our arrival the problem was quickly sorted and we were offered an upgrade at no extra cost. The staff went out of their way to assist us. The area is extremely quiet but close enough ( within walking distance) to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Topeka palace and much more. A great breakfast is included in the stay, we had to leave early one morning and the staff organized breakfast to be ready for us an hour and half earlier. This is really a great hotel. Away from the hustle and bustle of Sultanahmet but close enough to experience the best of this great city .

Room Tip: We had the top floor. A hike up 3 flights (no lift). But very quiet, a great view over the Bossphoro...

We arrived Istanbul via flight from Kayseri and took the taxi to Lalinn hotel. The hotel is tucked away in Sultanahmet alley ways. You will definitely need to set the GPS beforehand just in case the taxi driver got lost. Ours, fortunately was able to locate the hotel.

We were given a room in the underground level. It has a garden view and the room is quite large. Occasionally you can hear cars' passing by as the window on the other end of the room is right beside the road.

Interior, the room is clean and comfy. The bathroom is nice and comes with a bath tub.

Breakfast here is average. We tried 2 different hotels (in Selcuk & Goreme) of the same range that serves fantastic breakfasts.

The staffs are friendly and helpful. It takes 5 - 10 minutes' walk to the Blue mosque and Sultanahmet tramway. The walk using the alley ways are safe. We felt safe even when walking back to the hotel late one night during our stay,

In summary, this is a nice comfy hotel to stay in if you don't mind the daily walks

Me and my husband stayed in Istanbul in September at Lalin B&B. The manager was very friendly and we got a warm reception on the day we arrived. He was quite helpful and gave us a lot of tips for getting around Istanbul. The room was nice, cosy and sound proofed but small. Only breakfast was served and had a delicious spread with a variety of fruits, cereals and sweet savory treats. The hotel was very near to Sultanahmet although the walk from the hotel was a little difficult through steep cobbled streets. We saved on time and money by choosing this hotel as the main attractions Blue Mosque, Haga Sophia and Topakapi Palace were within walking distance. All in all, a value for money hotel with an amicable staff.

We really enjoyed our stay in Lalinn and this hotel was very convenient as it is close to the city center. In the morning a good breakfast to start a new nice day in Istanbul and the service was excellent when you need something for your room.

I travelled to Istanbul with my sister and friend, and we chose this hotel on basis of good ratings on tripadvisor. We have not regretted this. Staff are super nice and service minded. They offer help and ideas to main attractions. Breakfast is good too. Location is fine, but with a small walking distance to the Blue Mosque. Maybe not a good idea if you have problems walking. The area has good restaurants. There was one that looked french but they served turkish food and Karafirin a nice cafe.

We were three friends staying at Lalinn hotel. We stayed there for 6 days in a room that had space for 5 people. The room was very spacious, clean and cosy. The breakfast buffet was good and the service was excellent when you need something.
The Hotel is located in a quiet backstreet, a few seconds walk through a very charming street, that offers lots of restaurants (Cafe Karafirin is definitely a worth try) and small gift shops. A few minutes walk to all historical attractions( the Blue mosque, Sophia hagia etc.) and transport.
The staff people were very kind and helpful. The service at Lalinn was totally excellent and We definitely recommend staying at Lalinn hotel.
