“Fabulous service at a delightful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

We booked this hotel after reading a recommendation from Rick Steves and reading reviews of it on TripAdvisor. We stayed there for three nights prior to boarding an Eastern Mediterranean cruise and then one night after returning before heading home. The hotel was small and centrally located (one block to the Blue Mosque), the type that we normally stay in. The rooms were very nice for all of our party of eight. A wonderful breakfast with a great variety of food was provided each morning. Even with all this, however, the highlight was the excellent service that we received from all members of the staff--the manager, the reception personnel, the cook, the housekeepers. We would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again--in fact, would look forward to it.

Room Tip: We stayed in two different rooms, while our companions stayed in three others. All of them were gre...

The service was great and they would do anything to make your stay great. They volunteered to run my wife's clothes to the dry cleaners after our 20 day honeymoon. The view from our top floor room was the best part. It is within close walking distances to the major attractions. But, despite their hard work, the rooms need renovation and they struggle with keeping areas uncluttered.

Welcome everyone I am Aziza from Saudi Arabia I want to write a comment on the hotel Lausos honestly , hotel is one of the best hotels in Sultan Ahmed area because of its proximity to all the historical places and the Grand Bazaar The location
Where that position you can navigate between places on foot and also you can use the tram to the station near the hotel where I am in all my visits to Istanbul was held in the same hotel, despite the small size of the rooms and cons of this
But there are a lot of advantages that Tenseek this negative since all the staff enjoy the spirit of humor and dealing politely as well as the hotel free of alcohol and the delicious breakfast and the finest workers in the hotel

chef Yasmin featuring beautiful spirit and gentle smile and offer us the delicious dishes and appetizers and one of the main reasons that prompt me to return and stay in this hotel

I Became one with them as a family feel safe, secure thank all the workers in this esteemed hotel manager Mustafa, one of the workers called Adel and my beautiful sister Yasmine wish you luck in the new hotel in the area of ​​Sisli

We stayed at Lausos hotel in December 2013 for 3 days 2 nights booked by our travel agency.

Pros:
Great location in Sultanahmet district within very close walking distance to major sights including Blue Mosque, Hippodrome & Aya Sophia.
Generous buffet breakfast spread. Free access to tea, coffee, water and juice including delivery to room.

Cons:
Dark and dated decor.
Unreliable elevator to rooms.
No proper shower in room, just a less than practical 'jacuzzi bath'.
Staff were friendly but by obligation.

In summary, great location but average overall experience.

Room Tip: Specify if you want a room with a 'proper' shower

The Lausos Hotel is a gem, located in the Sutanhmet district close to the major sights. Modern accommodations at a modest price. Staff are hospitable and English-speaking. Breakfasts generous, with a wide range of offerings. Tea and,,,available in the late afternoon when you need a pick-up. We stayed 6 days, strongly recommend it. Vic & Lynn Bach

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better.

We stayed four nights at the Lausos and have only positive things to say about it. The staff is very very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect - only a five minute walk from the amazing Blue Mosque but just far enough removed so it is not in the middle of all the masses of people. Our room was small (I think they all are) but extremely comfortable. The A/C worked perfectly and bathroom is very nice. Considering that you are in the middle of a huge, very busy city, is was relatively quiet. The breakfast buffet is fairly rich and it is nice to eat it on their patio. I would definitely stay here again.
