Loved, loved, loved our stay at this hotel! We arrived in a fraught state after a hellish ride from the airport via an airport shuttle driven by a driver with a death wish that had taken us via the other airport (warning: do not accept offers from touts at the airport!). Our host's (Kenan) warm, friendly and sympathetic welcome soothed... More

Recently stayed for three nights and what makes this hotel so impressive is the outstanding customer service. We arrived late at night but were greeted warmly and checkin was efficient. Breakfast had good variety with the option of freshly cooked omelettes or fried eggs. Rooms were clean and spacious with ample complimentary bottled water. There is a afternoon tea service... More

I chose Seraglio from tripadvisor reviews. It is really a cozy and clean hotel in a very nice neighbourhood. It is close to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia and Topkapi Palace. In addition, it is also walking distance to the Spices Bazaar and to the Bosphorus cruises, as well as the Grand Bazzar. Our room was a bit small, but... More

Perfect location - very close to all major attractions, great staff - especially Kenan and Jalal, and the gentleman who served breakfast every day. The rooms are clean, bathrooms basic but have everything you may need. The evening free tea and cake must not be missed - and we didn't miss most. Couldn't have asked for more!

Really nice little hotel in the heart of old Istanbul, 5 min from the Blue mosque. The room was clean and spacious with an enormous bed. The tap water is not drinkable, but don't worry as the hotel provide free bottled water in your room and a well stocked tea tray. We had an ensuite shower room which was replenished... More

The hotel itself is not very exclusive but the highlights are: Location Customer service Free flow of tea coffee/cakes/cookies Thanks to Jalal and Kenan who were ready to assist any time of the day or night. Very welcoming, homely and cozy!

We stayed here for a long weekend to enjoy Istanbul and can only confirm the other reports: excellent located, very helpful staff as well as clean rooms. Breakfast is basic (served in a windowless cellar), but okay. All in all: excellent choice for sightseeing weekend!

Stayed at the beginning of February this year and have absolutely nothing bad to say about this little hotel. The service was friendly and all staff were very approachable and willing to assist. The location of the property is great. Everything is within an easy walk. The onsite restaurant is a little gem. Please try it at least once during... More

This was our second trip to istanbul, and once again the sultanhamet area provided a great base of operations. Anywhere that cannot be reached on foot, can easy be connected to by tram Now about the hotel itself, I cannot say enough. The breakfast was wonderful and the evening tea with cakes and soup provided a wonderful bridge to a... More

We stayed in March and were traveling with a 4 yr old. We stayed for 4 days and booked directly with them through their site allowing a free transfer from the airport and discount for cash payment. The airport transfer when arriving was difficult to find in the crowd of signs. Even after identifying ourselves, we had to wait almost... More
