My wife, son and I stayed at the Hotel Seraglio for three days. We rented a triple room with a an awesome view of the Blue Mosque (room 303). The room had a spacious terrace with a patio set including a table, seats and a rocking chair. I had read several reviews of this hotel and they were all very... More

The Seraglio is located in old Istanbul on a quiet street, very close to many attractions, and also not far from the excellent transport system. On arrival Yousef explained how to get around, and gave advice on where to go during our short stay. He even loaned us a travel card to use on the trams and ferries. Our room... More

By far one of the loveliest boutique hotels we've stayed in. Great location, only a short 10min stroll to the Sultanahmet tram stop and square where the magnificent Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque stand. The Arasta Bazaar is also just around the corner. Plenty of dining and shopping options around the hotel, everything is close by. We dined at the... More

We arrived at the hotel and were greeted with customer service above and beyond the usual. We were given cold drinks while our luggage was taken to our room. The gentleman at the desk took time to explain the location and how to get around the city. When we got to the room it was very clean, spacious, and comfortable.... More

I've never previously written a Trip Advisor review but having just returned from celebrating my 50th birthday with family in Istanbul, feel the need to commend the Seraglio on it's excellent customer service. Nothing was too much trouble; they were kind, courteous, and enormously helpful. The hotel is also perfectly located, well-priced, really clean and comfortable. We'd certainly return to... More

Fantastic hotel in a great spot. Both Yousif and Dindar did an amazing job, helping us with day trips and locations to eat. As others have noted, there are stairs which wasn’t an issue for us but could be for others. Nice breakfast, my only suggestion would be possibly starting breakfast at 7.30am rather than 8am. We had a couple... More

This beautiful hotel is situated in the old part of Istanbul and not far from all the major sight seeing destinations inclusive of Blue Mosque, Hagia Sohia, Topkapi Palace and much much more. It has oodles of charm and character reminiscent of long ago with the accompanying great service that seems to have disappeared from all but those that genuinely... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and everything was very nice and clean. Although it is quite close to the sights like the Blue Mosque and a lively restaurant street it is quite in the nights. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was really good.

This is a small hotel. Perfect location in a quiet side street. The rooms are modern and immaculate. The staff is very friendly. The wifi was not the fastest, but who goes there for work?? Restaurants and shops are many as soon as you step outside. The Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia are about half a mile away.
