Terrible Experience: they cheated us by advertising low price then increasing it once we started the reservation. They gave us a room below what we paid for!! They advertised a room with Blue Mosque view but gave us different one!! - I plan to deny the charges once I go back to the States. There awful odor in the toilet. There was no room services to clean or change towels. The towels are in very bad shap.This place used to be guest house then became 'hotel'. They called us at 11 to remind us about 11:30 chech-out!! There is no elevator. The stairs are too narrow.

The people who worked at the Lamp Hotel were very accommodating. They were able to schedule a shuttle for us in order to get to the airport on time and we're helpful in providing directions on how to get to certain places. Based from the outside, I wasn't expecting the room to be as cute and clean as it was. We had a wonderful view of the Blue Mosque and would definitely recommend staying here to other people. We were walking distance from everywhere (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Grand Bazaar).

Great staff and location
Wonderful staff, great location. However, mentioned the room had a private balcony, which it did not. Only one room actually has a balcony, the suite.

Don't bother looking elsewhere for price+perfectio
We arrived at the Lamp Hotel at midnight; nevertheless, the manager was friendly, helpful, warm, and even shared a hookah with us, chatting well into the night. The hotel's patio is the perfect vantage point from which to watch the the comings and going of the Old City, with countless shops and restaurants surrounding the area. Indeed, the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque are a 3-minute walk from the hotel, which boasts absolutely stunning views of the former from nearly every window. Travel weary, hungry, and tired, landing at the lamp hotel was like a revivifying breath of fresh air. Should I ever return to Turkey, I won't even bother looking elsewhere to stay. All that, and the complimentary breakfast is hearty and generous.

A girlfriend and I were on this trip together to Istanbul. We booked online from and got a fast reaponse and was greeted cheerfully when I called as well. The room, though small, had a great view of the Blue Mosque. The staff is great, everyone from Mehmet to Adbu and Cristina were polite, friendly and helpful. We felt comfortable and safe staying here and anytime I had a query, I was given an honest reply. They helped us get around the city and use their books on Istanbul (lonely planet was particularly helpful) and give local tips as well. The breakfast was ample and the coffee and tea were not only delicious but unlimited ! Our room was cleaned everyday. Most importantly, the hotel is a 3-5 min walk from Sultanhamet square and also from several reataurants, bars, bazaars and the tram. We would totally reccommend this hotel and plan on staying here again !
