Excellent people. They were really and truly interested about our stay there, they offered us guidance through the city and helped us with our food choices. If my way take me to Istanbul again, I will definately stay at Seminal!

Hotel is not bad espeicially if u took one of the cornor rooms at the 8th floor, which has a wide balcony. Rooms there r good n deicent plus hotel is close to all sight seeings. Breakfast is not bad for those who are not there for food only ((;. Good location. Good for low budget.
