We have just spent 5 wonderful nights in Istanbul and our stay in Hotel Seraglio was excellent. Initially a little difficult to find, the hotel is situated in an ideal location minutes walk from the old city area. The staff were very pleasant and always ready to help. The breakfast at the hotel was lovely with a great selection of fruits and cheeses. We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel and our room (303) was of good size with a very big bathroom. The room looked out to the back of the hotel onto other neighbouring hotels but the views was still pleasant (with the sea just being visible). I highly recommend this hotel for the excellent service and quality/value for money as well as the location that it offer for visiting the many tourist sites. Whilst there are many restuarants in the area around hotel, they cater solely for tourist. For a real taste of istanbul you would be better off heading to the beyoglu area or Kadikoy areas.

Very clean, comfortable beds, good breakfast buffet, and perfect location - near Topkapi, Aya Sophya, and Blue Mosque. Hotel is surrounded by multiple restaurants. We had dinner In Ocean 7 on the terrace with the view of sunset over Bosphorus.
Hotel crew is very helpful and accommodating. They kept our luggage until 7PM after check out.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room for 3 people (one queen and one single bed) near reception, It had private garde...

You get EXACTLY what they say on their web site.
Just spent 5 nights there.
Excellent location, room (stayed in Hamman), friendly, helpful, wonderful breakfast etc etc.

The niggles I have read on Tripadvisor comments have not, in my opinion, been an issue of
this Hotel but of the city, the life and the culture.

We have no complaints and only praise.

Room Tip: Hamman Room 202

I stayed for a week at the Seraglio in early September, 2013. I could not have been happier with the accommodations, people, food and location. You can walk to everything from the hotel, and will never need to take a tram or cab to get to all the historical sights. The breakfasts are simply fabulous with individually made omelets, fruit, yogurt, breads, sweets, cheeses, etc. Meticulously clean. The Bistro serves wonderful food, and we often came back for lunch instead of chancing a hit or miss place in the Sultanamet. We ate dinner here virtually every night, and tried different dishes, all of which were superb.

The staff are friendly and helpful, and the prices are very reasonable.

Room Tip: We were in the front of the building, but it was still quiet at night. I was in the Hammam room, an...

My wife and I chose to stay at the Seraglio on our recent trip to Istanbul because it is so highly rated by fellow travellers. We were not disappointed. For a small hotel to be ranked as high as 17th out of over 800 hotels in Istanbul is an incredible achievement. The reason is the staff who are always courteous, helpful and who go the extra mile to make your stay special. For instance, the front office Manager offered us lunch "on the house" when he found out it was our 40th wedding anniversary! We have stayed in many hotels throughout Europe, on both business and leisure trips and the Seraglio ranks second to none.
