What a Great Hotel!
Posted Jul 22, 2016
I got caught in Istanbul the night of the failed military coup. From the hotel we could hear gunshots, explosions, helicopter gunships and, after 3 am, F-16 jets screaming just over the roof of the hotel and letting out sonic booms to scare the crowd at nearby Taksim Square. The staff was superbly professional and went way out of their way to be as protective as possible. Despite the turmoil, and not really knowing what was going on, I felt relatively safe and secure and had full confidence I was in the right place. I told my friends that if I had to be stuck in that situation I couldn't think of a better place to be than the Pera Palace. (How's that for a hotel review??)
