Seref Hotel
Ranked #9 of 16 Yalova B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 January 2014

during our road trip in Turkey, we slept at 7 different places, all within the same price range. Despite being one of the most expensive of the lot, Seref hotel ended up 7th on our list.

Dirty ashtray in the non-smoking room. so much mold in the bathroom we didn't dare take a shower. splahes on the wall, crappy/noisy fridge. Fortunately, the bedsheets were OK.

it was also the worse breakfast we had. Artificial butter and honey, limited options at the buffet, and the staff was always on her iphone, chatting or facebooking, whatever, and didnt care at all.

So either this place is going down, or we ended up with the crappiest room at the worse time. Still, nothing can excuse giving such a horrible room.

The hotel is located an easy walk from the ferry terminal, about 300m to the right towards the town centre. The room is basic, plainly decorated but clean and comfortable. The room contained a double bed and single bed, firm. There was a desk and chair. Some rooms have sea views. There was a little street noise but overall a good nights sleep. Bathroom was compact but good, nice shower pressure and hot, vanity and hair dryer. Big soft towels. Breakfast room is on the 5th floor, a pleasant room overlooking the harbour. Breakfast consisted of cold items, hard boiled eggs, salad, olives and freshly baked bread rolls. Couldn't get a coffee but I think this was due to a language barrier. Yalova has some nice restaurants near the ferry terminal and also many other turkish style cafés along the promenade closer to the town centre. A reasonable hotel for a one night stay. I would also highly recommend dessert and Turkish coffee at Baklavac Antepioglu which is located very close to the hotel in the same street.

Recently had experience of stay at Seref Hotel Yalova. Location was good near the Ferry and Bus stop near the sea shore.Rooms were just Ok.No attendantis there if you call room service.Single person at reception is responsible for every task.Just giving on average clean room and AC doesn't mean that service is good.Staff even at reception is unable to talk properly in English ,except for few words.Worst part was breakfast which they were charging in room rent.22 minutes before time everything ended except one slice of cucumber and tomato each.The 2women responsible for serving breakfast to guests were busy in eating the breakfast and when anyone asked about milk ,eggs,eat they said by making faces that its finished and will be brought tomorrow.Many guests including went without breakfast.Elevator had rough handle of door that injured my finger.When I complained at reception about door and breakfast the person was unable to understand because of language barrier.
It's better to find a hostel rather than to waste money at such hotel.

The location of the hotel is good (although there are lots of hotels nearby).
3 mins walk to the pedestrian area. 3 mins walk to the seaside.
Price average.
Our room was large, had a sea view. There was a fridge in our room (dirty and out of order).
The hotel seems to have had a renovation recently, but there are still things to fix.

Breakfast - standard turkish on the top floor. Inside and outside,- but no tables/chairs outside.
Seaview from breakfast area.
WiFi working fine.

On entry realised the bed clothes were not changed and bathroom not cleaned properly. Rooms are spacious with Cable tv and ours had no fridge for 90 Tl a night. Good breakfast on rooftop and pretty quiet. Yalova is a nice seaside town with nice restaurants and walking about.
