I begin by saying how wonderful the staff at this hotel is. They were friendly and charming from the moment we arrived. We split our visit into two stays.... two days before visiting Eastern Turkey, and two relaxing days on our return to Istanbul. We were greeted by a smiling Kenan on both visits and sent on our way the... More

The room was large! We had free wifi and a very comfortable room. It was VERY close to the Blue Mosque. Walking distance to wonderful restaurants and shops. Not too busy, but it was November. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast was nice. We had lunch at the restaurant once and it was good.

What can I say... Location, location, location. The hotel is just a couple of blocks of the action and main attractions in Istanbul. Our 3 nights at Hotel Seraglio were something special. The front-desk guy is the most customer oriented person that I have known. The room was modern; bed, amenities, service... amazing experience. THANKS for a wonderful time in... More

We stayed at Hotel Seraglio for 5 nights in early July. We had 2 rooms on the first floor at the back side of the hotel. The rooms were clean and staff were superb, pleasant and always helpful. The breakfast included was always fantastic and again staff were incredible. Being on the first floor just above the street level and... More

A warm welcome awaited us. We were offered a free drink on arrival. The hotel also coped admirably with our airport transfer. The rooms were fairly spacious with a wonderfully wide bed. We spent one night here and then returned for four nights after touring other areas. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

My son and I stayed here for several nights the week of July 24th and I have to say this place was by far the best place we stayed at. The service was delightful, the rooms were nice and Kenan and Jalal who are the receptionists/concierge are outstanding. They were very knowledgeable in their recommendations of when to do what,...

A beautiful small hotel so close to all the major attractions, lovely street as you approach reception, it does look a bit dodgy further down the street!!! We arrived c.19.00 and as we checked in, after a long days travel, we were offered a complimentary drink, a very nice touch. We were then given an overview by the reception staff... More

We stayed for a total of 4 nights at Seraglio and the experience was wonderful. The hotel is located at Sultanahmet and is in close proximity to most sites. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly and would take time out to advice us on what was to be done. The breakfast is superb and the complimentary evening tea and... More

We found this excellent hotel because of the many constructive reviews on TripAdvisor which again 'came up trumps'. As always I usually make a number of early polite requests after arrival for things that we prefer. It's impossible for hotels to know everyone's personal preferences but I find them always keen to make you as comfortable as possible. In the... More

A delightful little hotel situated a stone's throw away from Istanbul's bustling historical centre. The location is truly superb with the hotel sitting right in the heart of the Old Town and being surrounded by many beautiful shops and restaurants.The rooms were pristine, spacious and furnished to an excellent standard.
