The location of the Seres is perfect for visiting the old city and for taking Bosphorus and Princes Islands cruises. The tram takes you everywhere. The hotel itself is on the modest side but staff are friendly.

Beuatiful and very nice hotel. Very clean. Nice atmosphere - a bit like fairytale. The hotel made breakfast for us at 5 in the morning. A very bit and good buffet - only for the us 8 guests. Had a beautiful view from my room. The restaurant in on top with a splendid view to all sides :)

This hotel is very centrally situated in Istanbul, within walking distance of the Spice Market, Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace, Justinian cisterns, and archaeology museum. Our room was spacious and comfortable (but I understand that some rooms can be quite small). The roof-top restaurant has excellent views over the city. The food was average but OK. Friendly staff....

We stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise. It is a lovely small hotel in a great location, being only 10 mintues walk to the old town. The tram also runs past the hotel. Staff were very helpful. Rooms are a medium size, clean and with airconditioning. The rooftop restaurant has the most amazing views over the bay, you... More

The Seres hotel is a short walk from Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi palace. It has quite an unassuming frontage but there is a wonderful terrace restaurant room at the top of the building with a view over most of Istanbul and the Bosphorus. The rooms were quite spacious, the shower quite strong but with an irritating curtain... More

The room was nice and clean. You can reach most of the points of interest in Istanbul by foot. The staff were very kindly and helpful. Only disadvantage was the air condition out of order for three days and more important nights. So we had to open the window in the night. The traffic didn`t let us sleep. After this... More

The hotel is ok, room in the back side a little bit small but without noise, and clean. The reception stuff is not very helpful, we were carrying a lot of baggage and nobody even opened the door for us. The breakfast is ok, maybe boring after the first days. The best thing is the restaurant, very good food, very... More
