Run by local people, the Seref Hotel has a kind of charme, but to relax after a sightseeing day in Istanbul it is the totally wrong place. Seref is located at Talabarsi Blv - a never sleeping car and bus run in Beyoglu. Sleeping with open window is impossible. Closed window means to breath unfresh air, but that of course... More

The service was immediate and thorough. The room was very nice all though small. The hotel’s location was on a main street with a very lively center, with many restaurants and stores, behind the hotel. The hotel was also adjacent to the popular area of Taxim.

The hotel is cheap, I paid 50 TL (July 2012) for a night. I had a room at the front, where is noise from the heavy traffic on Tarlabasi Bulvari. It's not that bad, not even with an open window, but if you're used to the silence of the countryside it's better to ask for a room at the backside.... More

This hotel is pretty old and low quality. For the price it is ok to stay here. The reception area is nice but the rooms are low standard. The receptionists are friendly, but one gave wrong information about the buses, which made me walk unnecessarily with a luggage. The hotel are is not pleasant, but it is 5 minutes walk... More
