“Very Good Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

The location of the Serene Hotels, Istanbul, is excellent. The rooms are clean and the service is super efficient and convenient. The Breakfast buffet was very tasty and simply made the experience worth it. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Finding Serene the first time is admittedly not easy, given its off the street location but once you find it you'll be set. The hotel is clean, has well laid out rooms and is situated squarely on the fascinating Istikal Cad. The real treasure however is its staff, and especially Aren and Orhan, two of the most charming and helpful hoteliers you can find anywhere...They made our visit much easier and far more interesting, going out of their way to help us discover Turkey. Can we recommend Serene? Certainly, but be prepared for noisy nights and if you can share in the parade of the hundreds of thousands of evening strollers you will easily forgive the blaring music.

Tip: if you plan to arrive at Ataturk airport request Serene to have their competent driver meet you. Its well worth it.

Thank you Aren and Orhan, I am sure we will see you soon again.

This hotel is located near the main street (Istakal Caddesi) and Taksim square.
The guys are helpful and speak English.
The rooms are nice and well within the kit for tea and coffee.
The price of accommodation is right, I recommend it as a hotel

I really recommend this hotel. We spent five nights there and it was a great stay. The room was comfortable, had a nice toilet and the bed was good. The room had a small lounge area and small "kitchen area" with a kettle, fridge, glasses, cups and tea and coffee invitation from the Hotel. The Hotel also provides free bottled water to the guests. The highlights we found were: the Hotel's location; the friendliness of the staff, who were also very helpful; and that the rooms were very clean.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are quieter as Istiklal Cadesi can be very busy. However, the windows are wel...

The Serene hotel was a very good stay in Istanbul. The location is very good, very central, close to a popular square. The rooms inside were comfortable, and good for being on a budget. The hotel staff were very friendly, and I appreciated that they helped me out with directions. Overall, definitely recommend the Serene Hotel.

It was one of the best hotels i've ever been. Perfect Location in the middle of the istiklal street. Very friendly and helpful staff.

I will definitely book this hotel again the next time in Istanbul.

Very clean room, great location more than helpful staff. I would reccommed this hotel to anyone traveling Istanbul. In the heart of the nightlife and activities

Initially our cab driver could not find the hotel as there is no access via car, but a staff member from serene came running out to the street to greet us and carry our bags to the hotel after we called.
