I chose Seraglio as a mid-priced hotel in the Sultanahmet district. It did not disappoint. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was a little more than adequate, and best of all, we could walk to all of the historical sites easily. Our guide and drivers picked us up at the door each day. The staff were wonderful from check-in to... More

Very decent modern hotel, doesn't seem to be when you see it from outside but is very neat clean and newly done up inside. Simple breakfast. Our walking tour lady did our pickup from the hotel itself. many shops around for souvenirs

I came with a study group to this hotel and let me just say that through out my whole travel experience, Seraglio hotel is the only hotel I have felt at home in. Tea and coffee is served whenever and for free, breakfast is very good and healthy, the rooms are beautiful. It is a cute romantic hotel that I... More

I visit Istanbul once or sometimes twice a year and always stay here. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable; breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner are great; location is perfect; and the staff (especially Kenan) are wonderful. This is the best place to stay in Istanbul if you want to experience real Turkish hospitality.

This is the second time we have stayed at Hotel Seraglio, and although it was only a matter of 4 days between the first visit, the hotel management were very professional and provided the same high quality service. We would recommend this place as a 4 star hotel in this precint of Sultanahmet

They are very helpful with their reccommendations and extremely kind, above all with our children of 6 and 8. The hotel is in a quiet street, a... More

My family all stayed here when we came to visit Istanbul, and we could not have been more pleased with Hotel Seraglio! The location is absolutely unbeatable, as you are only a few minutes from the heart of the historic Sultanahmet district (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Cistern, shopping, etc.), yet the neighborhood is fairly quiet. Our room was very comfortable,... More

My wife and I spent four nights at the Seraglio and loved it. Maybe not the flashest hotel around but the friendly staff and proximity to all the 'old town' attractions more than made up for any lack of ritzyness. A great breakfast of typical Turkish cuisine (the fresh figs were truly memorable) started the day. The hotel is within... More

This hotel is ideal for people who wish to visit the historic sites of Istanbul, Byzantium and Constantinople. It is situated right in the centre of the old city with plenty of restaurants, shops and stalls within walking distance; and many others accessible by public transport which is clean, efficient and low cost. The hotel itself has all the charm... More
