Amazing two week stay at this wonderful hotel. Mehmet is a marvelous owner and beyond helpful. The hotel is 3-5 minute walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia as well as 7 mins from the tram line, which open up the whole city to you. I recommend you book directly from the hotel not through a travel website (www.lampguesthouse.com). It is located on a street with many touristy restaurants but at an end of it where you will never hear the late night festivities which can go till three in the morning. Being directly behind the Blue mosque you will hear all the calls to prayer which are beautiful. The rooms are basic and very clean. Only issue i had was the blanket was a little thin and it was cold while i was there(Oct13-27) but i had brought my own warmer one just in case, granted i live in southern california so i am spoiled with the weather. Mehmet is extremely helpful with any booking you need to do or advise about where to go or really anything. He knows everyone and helped us many times by calling up friends and walking with us a fair distance just to make sure everything went well and like others have said he has great sense of humor. We made the mistake of a booking a trip to Capadoccia from a travel agency close to the hotel and we greatly regretted it, you may save money but i wish we had gone through Mehmet and had a much better experience with a trustworthy agency. I would highly recommend this and am definitely staying there when i go back. Bottom line is great price for a great hotel in a great area with great people.
