I stayed at Seraglio for one night, it was almost 10 days ago. I had a wonderful and comfortable stay. The room is so modern with a very classic style, very comfortable with a small balcony. The bed was extremely comfortable and the WC was also very modern. The staff went out of their way to help and answer questions.... More

Loved this place, and the welcome we got was fabulous - on a very hot day we were poured a beer each and given a small chat about the hotel and Istanbul while we were checked in. However, we were also given restaurant recommendations and offered a "free" cab to and from a bustling, restaurant-filled street. My advice is to... More

All staff at Hotel Seraglio were very friendly and efficient. Tarik helped me plan my stay and showed a great deal of genuine care in doing so. I was also so grateful for Kanaan's kind assistance with Post Office staff, a shopkeeper and an airport transfer driver. Hotel Seraglio is a must stay, comfortable and pleasant - highly recommended.

We stayed for 3 nights and could not fault this hotel. The room was very comfortable and we were lucky to have the top floor room with balcony from which u could see blue mosque and a little bit of sea.

This hotel has terrifically friendly staff, a killer omelet-maker at the generous breakfast, and nice, modern rooms in the heart of Sultanhamet. They have a terrific view from the roof, which was being suited out during our April visit. Hopefully it will soon be a place where one can sip a drink with excellent views of the Blue Mosque. We...

The Blue Mosque is less that a 10-minute walk from this 3-star hotel. In fact, from my room on the 1st floor, I can see one of the minarets. If you took the tram, the Sultan Ahmet stop is just a little over 10 minutes away on foot. The room and comfortable bed are large and there's adequate storage space... More

The location of the hotel couldn't be better! Lotsa of restaurants nearby and the key sights such as Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, etc are all within a comfortable walking distance. Hotel wise, staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms very clean and well kept and extremely comfortable. Definitely value for money.

Overall, we had a great stay and will stay there again - great value and certainly not a budget hotel when it comes to staff, services and amenities - only the price was budget and hope they keep it that way. What could be improved: - The air conditioning was turned off for the whole hotel as it was still... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
