“Great Service”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

I spent 10 days at this wonderful hotel. The service was great especially with Resat who was always so helpful. He introduced me to Turkish coffee :). Yasemin was excellent also with the great food and pastries. They both always had a smile and made you feel like family!! Abduallah was great help and well as rest of staff. Mustafasa was kind and considerate always concerned if I needed anything. This hotel is in great location and I was able to walk to all the major attractions as well as restaurants. The staff at this hotel made me feel like I was a part of their family and I appreciated it greatly. I plan to return next year and will definitely stay there again!! Its a unique hotel with an excellent staff and service!!! Thanks guys see you next year!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms are better on four floor.

Lausos Hotel give you an exelent service. The Receptionist gave us very good information ( in english) from day one , so it was easy to make a plan, what to see and to make reservation for a fullday tour.
The view to Sultanahmet from our beautifull big room was magnificent.
The location can't be more perfect. 3 minutes walk to Hagia Sophia , Blue mosk, 10 minutes to Grand Bazar.
We enjoyed our stay and can only give our best recomends.

We spent three nights in this hotel later August this year. We've chosen it because of fabulous view from the suite based on TripAdvisor reviews. The view is definitely amazing. The only thing is the hotel itself. We paid 300 euro per night, which looks to be to much for such a quality and service. Respect to the photographer who took pics of the suite, as in reality it was much smaller as well as quite old and outdated. Room needs a reparation almost everywhere, so we didn't understand, why price was that high. Breakfast was poor. We are not crazy about having plenty of fruits or champagne:), but food was really low basic. Knowing Turkey as a country of sweets and other delights, we were surprised not to get any of this in the hotel. Cleaning is not proper enough, I even found an empty plastic bottle under the sofa, probably left by previous guests.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel for such a price.
Staff is ok, I wouldn't say they were enormously friendly, they just were quite ok.
Anyways, Istanbul is absolutely amazing! Fantastic view on blue mosque in the morning, during the day and at night made our weekend.

If you are travelling for a romantic getaway to Istanbul then Dream suite at the Lausos hotel is a must. It is a room with a panoramic view of Istanbul skyline which is stunning!! The hotel is in old city so close to Medusa's trail, Blue mosque and topakapi. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is decent with a lot of fruits!

Room Tip: Stay at Dream suite for a fabulous view

The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpfull. The location is great, right near the blue mosque and some other tourist must-sees. I also liked the elaborate breakfast a lot.
The only thing that bothered me personally was that in one of the rooms we stayed (we changed to a twin room), one window didnt have a curtain or blind or anything, which woke me up at 5am every morning. But again this is something personal that won't bother many people.

We had a double room on the 3rd floor, with the view of the Bosphorus and the mosque, which was absolutely breathtaking!
The room itself was very small, but with the jacuzzi and the lovely view it was totally worth it.

The only drawback was the Adan times in the evening and very early morning (very noisy!). As there are many mosques around, you will need ear plugs to get a good night of sleep.

The staff are really friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are really yummy and when we were visiting, there was a complimentary afternoon tea offered by the hotel with tea, coffee and sandwiches.

To sum it up, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the place. :)

Our stay at Hotel Lausos was marvelous. We traveled with extended family and had more than one room. The location was perfect in the center of the "old city" of Sultanahmet and we were able to walk to many beautiful sites. The hospitality was superb! We were treated as truly welcomed guests by all of the staff but particularly by Resat and Yasmin. Our comfort was their main concern. Resat helped us arrange a cruise up the Bosphorus and was very kind in helping us navigate the city. He arranged for our transport to the airport and was overall a very, very helpful gentleman. The food was marvelous! The chef daily made specialty treats of many varieties and the breakfast was plentiful. Yasmin always anticipated when I wanted a coffee, then served it on a lovely silver plate with sweets! Our rooms had beautiful views, air conditioning, and clean and comfortable bathrooms. They were clean and the sheets and towels were wonderfully soft! We would return to this lovely city and stay at Hotel Lausos again and again!

Room Tip: All the rooms were very nice but I really liked the one on the upper floor.
