Even before we left home the contact we had with the hotel owners was very efficient. Booking direct saved us money and arranging our complimentary airport transfer was straightforward. We were met at the airport and our transfer to the hotel in a private car went smoothly. We were met at reception by an extremely welcoming and knowledgeable gentleman. Our bags were taken up to our room, which was above our expectations. We were guided, by the receptionist to a very nice restaurant for our evening meal. We were actually three minutes from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia and several other amazing sights. Breakfast was a feast, with individually made omlettes, which were scrumptious. Each evening we arrived back at the hotel to a very welcome complimentary Turkish Apple tea, cake and fresh fruit. We met and had drinks with the hotel owners, a very lovely couple, who soon became very good friends. We had a busy week, seeing the most amazing sights, some good bargaining in the Grand Bazaar and two relaxing days by the sea on Prince's Island and at Galatiseri Island, all using the very easy public transport, with a travel card given to us by the receptionist (it even worked in the public toilets!). If you are thinking about travelling to Istanbul, you should definitely highly recommend both Istanbul and Hotel Seraglio.
