Seraglio starts off against tough competition - most places in Istanbul we went to, do their best to be hospitable - and comes out in flying colours. They are so flexible and willing to ensure you get the best time out of your vacation that after some time one starts feeling that you are taking advantage of them! But only...

Kenan and Jelar (day and night managers), and the entire staff of the Hotel Seraglio, make you feel like a visitor to a home rather than just guests in a hotel. No question was too much, no request too extreme, and they shared much of their own lives with us. The hotel itself is extremely comfortable. We stayed in the...

In a nutshell, I rarely give 5's for any place and for me to give it to a hotel requires a great pool, etc etc. That's the only reason I don't give Seraglio Hotel a 5. This small hotel is a gem. It's about a quarter mile slightly downhill from the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. There are many...

Rooms were clean, comfortable...staff so helpful and a nice choice of Turkish breakfast. We had a standard room and our friends had the spacious hamam room, with Turkish bath included.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Upon our arrival at 1am, we received a warm greeting, assistance with our luggage and shown to our room. We were also given bottles of cold water which was very welcomed after a long flight! The staff is amazingly helpful and knowledgeable. They assisted with booking a boat tour and providing...

We stayed for 10 nights at the Seraglio while in Istanbul and were totally happy with our visit. The hotel is perfectly located--close to everything and yet on a quiet street except for the call to prayer which we enjoyed hearing (the price of being a block and a half away from the Blue Mosque); the staff is extremely helpful...

We booked this hotel following the Trip Advisor recommendations, and we had an excellent stay. It’s a small and cozy hotel, located just a few meters away from the main attractions (Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace, etc). There was free parking in front of the hotel. The rooms were impeccable, the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was nice...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
