This hotel is where it is at if you want to feel like you are at a home away from home. You really are their guest! not just another tourist. My mother andI arrived here from India on May 6, 2012 for 4 nights. The hotel is well situated, beautifully clean and decorated and the staff greet you like you are their long lost cousin! I am very familiar with the hospitality business as I am from Jamaica and this hotel has got it right!
The breakfast is lovely - the chef actually makes a better omelette than people who have gone to culinary school! Fruits galore, juice, figs, nuts all beautifully presented
If you speak with the people on front desk they are so HELPFUL and show you maps of how to get to places and how much you should be paying for this or that.
I had a chest infection (from India, and I suppose the temperature change) and CHARRAE, a member of the family that own of the Seraglio, took me to the Hospital himself! I felt like I really had my Big brother there. God bless that man!
I would recommend this as THE ONLY place to stay in Istanbul....I certainly won't ever stay anywhere else.....
We are about to leave this hotel to go home but we feel so strongly that we have to tell travelers that we are writing the review now!
