In the heart of the old town of the magnificent Istanbul, you will find the charming boutique Hotel Seraglio. The townhouse built in 1938 and just refurbished into our hotel was home to my grandparents. My father and aunt grew here. Years later, I have studied Hospitality and Hotel Management and now run our little hotel.
Hotel Seraglio is decorated with personal touches of my family. My aunt Semra’s ceramics and my mother Guler’s oil paintings dress our walls. My father’s perfectionist character and sister’s criticisms also helped while decorating the hotel.
In the project, we paid special attention to retain the character of the old house. Now that the refurbishing is over, the hotel has 14 tastefully and comfortably decorated rooms in different categories.
Proud to be third generation in the neighborhood, which once was the center of Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, our objective is to give our guests the impression of a large home, rather than a public place.
Seraglio enjoys an excellent location, being within a stone’s throw of Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque among other historical sights.
As a new boutique hotel in a great location with a family touch and professional staff, we hope to make your stay in Istanbul memorable by our genuine hospitality.
