Lamp Hotel was perfect for our 6day trip to Istanbul. Our room was with a breathtaking view to Sultanahmed (Blue) Mosque and absolutely quiet. It was in fact really tiny but ok if you are out all day and only need a place to sleep - and the mattress was perfect! The bathroom was the same tiny but brandnew and well equipped incl hairdryer. The major sights are within walking distance so the neighbourhood is nice but totally "touristy". The restaurant Istanblue next door has fantastic food as well as the small snack bar at the corner. We couldn't check all the others. In Lamp Hotel they are very consequent with traditional Turkish breakfast, which is really fine, it was delicious and copious but it was absolutely identical for 6 days apart from boiled / scrambled or no egg. After a complete renewal (we seemed to be one of first guests) the house looks perfect but probably lost a bit atmosphere and individuality. (I was a bit disapointed - I expected lamps like I saw on older pics in other websites, but there is only one of these mosaic lamps left, lying in a shelf. Also the sofas in front of the hotel have disappeared, hopefully only due to the season.) Prices seem to vary a lot from website to website. Mehmet and his staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They do everything to make it a pleasant stay, be it joining guests visiting a hamam or jumping for food for us while we were waiting for the airport transfer. Thank you again!

Wonderful location as it is about 5 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and Ayasofia. The owner and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is typical Turkish style with olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, sauage, egg, soft white bread, coffee, and Turkish tea. It is just recently renovated. The first 2 nights we stayed at a brand new spacious 4-people room. We then moved to a twin room on the first floor and stayed for 3 nights. This room is not as new, but is still very pleasant. The rooms facing the back are smaller, but have a superb view of the Blue Mosque. They are probably a bit quieter. Ours were facing the street. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay there again when we visit Istanbul.

1) A better map to show location would be a good idea. Our taxi driver got frustrated because he could not find The Lamp Guesthouse. 2) There is an excellent restaurant (The Istanblue) right next door to The Lamp Guest House....very reasonable prices and excellent food. Highly recommended. 3) Lamp Guesthouse was wonderfully placed to see everything in the Sultanahmet. Fabulous view of the Blue Mosque from the breakfast room. 4) The 'Venere' website does not show the correct photographs of The Lamp Guesthouse. They are of some other property. 5) The manager, Mehmet, was extremely helpful both before we arrived and once we were in Istanbul. 6) This was the first time we had stayed at the Lamphouse . We would happily stay there again.

Although the room was tiny and well-worn, the bed was extremely comfortable with fabulous linens and comforter. The view of the Blue Mosque from the terrace was an awesome breakfast treat! A perfect base if all you need is a good bed, a hot shower and breakfast.

Pictures were a little misleading. Rooms were quiet small, no shower curtain, and the terrace had only two tables. Great location though, and I had a beautiful view of the Blue Mossque. All I needed was a bed and shower, so it was fine. If I was looking for anything more, I wouldn't stay here. It was clean and the staff was very nice, and the free Internet was convenient.
