Small hotel in ideal location, just a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Plenty of restaurants nearby. All the staff are very friendly, have excellent english and are willing to help and give any advice you may need

Actually, I already visited Istanbul 3 years ago but this hotel gave me and my family lots of good memories to be remembered. This hotel is one of the best hotels that I ever stayed at. The staffs are very friendly (yes, they are) and quite informative since they told me and my family about interesting places in Istanbul. The... More

I brought my family to visit Istanbul and we stayed at the Seraglio Hotel. I stay here every year and love the place. My family are also won over. You can't beat this place for service, cleanliness and location. The staff are second to none. The Seraglio definitely makes a great stay in Istanbul a fantastic experience.

We stayed at the Hotel Seraglio for a week and by the end of our stay felt reluctant to leave. This is a small hotel on a quiet street in the old Sultanahmet quarter around the Blue Mosque. Yusuf checked us in, was very helpful the entire week, and deserves special commendation. The room had good storage, was pristinely clean,... More

Arrived late, after a very nice complimentary transfer, to a very warm welcome by Yusuf. Gave us a map and useful local tips including good restaurant recommendations. Bedroom was spacious and comfortable with a large shower, no bath, tea + coffee making facilities in room as well as complimentary water bottle. Location was excellent; central, couple of minutes walk to... More

Okay, so my initial opinion was that I didn't like this hotel. Then, I realized that my opinion was based on the fact that I didn't like climbing 2 flights of winding stairs to reach my room, after flying for hours. The room was big and the shower was huge. The next morning I went down more stairs to reach... More

We stayed here only for a day and we were completely impressed with Seraglio's hospitality. Kenan, the manager, was truly helpful and he gave interesting insights about Istanbul that we otherwise wouldn't have known. The room was the perfect size, and the bath was the best one we've witnessed in out trip through turkey. The property is very close to... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
