I had a wonderful time at Hilton Bospherous Hotel. I felt very safe with guard at front entrance and metal detectors when you walk into the Hotel. I think a good number of Hotels have the Metal Detectors now. Very lovely Pool and Dining facilities. I wanted to stay a couple more days if I could.

Have been spending a weekend away with the same friends for the past 9 years . Istanbul and the Marmara Pera did not disappoint. The rooms were lovely with a retro feel and the bathroom was modern.
The area is fantastic for dining and drinking with many bars and restaurants within a 10 minute stroll .
The rooftop bar had fantastic views over Istanbul and very attentive service.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel but found 2 lovely places nearby which did fabulous and reasonably priced meals. The Delicatessen and The House Cafe. Great scrambled eggs ,with cheese at the first and with spinach at the latter. Both did an excellent cappuccino too.
The staff at the hotel were helpful and friendly. One of our party felt that room service knocked too early and too frequently in the mornings. Being 2 hours ahead of London time we were being quite lazy in the mornings!
We could easily walk to the Galata Tower and Bridge, crossing over to the old town souks and mosques. The view from the Galata Tower is good and helps to understand the geography of the city.
We didn't have to queue for long but we saw some very long queues on other days. Heading down from the tower to the Galata bridge there are some lovely small fish restaurants just to the right and past the fish market. Try some freshly squeezed pomegranate juice.
We would recommend both the hotel and area for a short break to Istanbul.

It was awesome great breakfast and close to everything the staff was there to help all the time and the room was comfortable the only down is that if somebody screams or moves something you can hear everything that was annoying

The Beyoglu-Taksim district is on the European side of Istanbul, across the Golden Horn from the historic city centre. “Beyoglu” generally refers to the area in Taksim between Taksim Square and the Tunel (subway). The district has traditionally been the most European quarter of Istanbul, with many consulates and embassies. It remains famous for its arts, entertainment, and nightlife.
