Great Hotel - The Best in Instanbul
Posted Apr 28, 2016
I have stayed in the Hilton, the Shearton and the best Hotels in India, Pakistan, Hong Kong, yet the Lalinn beats them all.
The staff was fantastic with assistance for dinners, sight seeing, bargaining and shopping.
Our room was large looking out on the street, yet the area was very quiet with no traffic or street noise. The floors were cleaned every day, the room was made up, fresh towels provided and house keeping even folded our clothes and always provided additional towels and pillows. The AC worked really well, it was quiet, and could be set to freezing.
Breakfast was always excellent providing tea, coffee, juice, fresh breads and very fresh cheese, tomatoes and fruit in season.
What we really enjoyed was the help from the staff. If we needed laundry done, they provided the service. If you needed an item, they figured out where to get it and called a taxi if needed. If you asked for a dinner recommendations, they were always helpful in suggesting the right place (with the best food and prices). If you wanted to go shopping, they made recommendations on where to shop, what the prices might be and how to bargain the seller down to an acceptable price. The staff was always there for any needs or assistance, without question, helping you enjoy your stay.
I cannot say enough nice things about the Lalinn and the staff. Never in all my 30+ years of international travel have I had such excellent service. When I return to Istanbul I will definitely stay at the Lalinn.
