Very nice & historic hotel

Posted Apr 15, 2017
Pros: how historic it is with the very old elevator
Cons: couldn't find anything
Location: easy walk to Istiklal street
it's a beautiful hotel & the location is great with easy walk to pedestrian Istiklal street. Every one is so friendly & helpful. Definitely we'll stay again once we're back in Istanbul

Lovely hotel in a great location

Posted Apr 14, 2017
My parents and I stayed at Pera Palace. I wanted them to experience the hotel their last night in Istanbul. The staff was amazing, and even made dinner reservations for us at a nearby restaurant. The beds and pillows were so comfortable. I loved staying there.

The best hotel in the world

Posted Apr 6, 2017
Pros: The staff, the public rooms, the location.
Location: Close to the Galata tower and shopping street, it's a short taxi ride from Sultanahmet too.
This is the second time we have stayed at the Pera and I hope it won't be the last. This is a place steeped in history which takes you back in time to when hotels weren't impersonal places. The staff get to know you, you see the same faces, service is impeccable and the decor is magnificent. I feel like I've had an experience as well as a holiday when I stay here.

Great Layover

Posted Mar 28, 2017
We are in to historic hotels and decided what a great way to spend our Turkish Airline layover. The hotel just wreaks of history and drama. You can almost feel it. We had drinks in the fabulous bar thinking of Hemingway and Hitchcock, then migrated to Agatha Restaurant fur five star dinner! It was fabulous! We retired to our Ernest Hemingway Suite but vowed to reserve the Agatha Christie room on our next visit. She actually wrote Murder on the Orient Express there! The Orient Express ends nearby and passengers were ferried one by one to the hotel which has memorabilia to prove it! The hotel is a museum. It was so much and makes the most out of a dreary layover! Or if you have the time and funds, stay longer! Highly recommend!

First class facility with excellent service

Posted Feb 28, 2017
Pros: Service, facility, location
Cons: food in the french restaurant, bread for breakfast
Location: Gallata Tower, Bridge. Although hilly area easy walk to all major sites
We stayed at the presidential suite which was well equipped, spacious and comfortable. The hotel has several restaurants, a bar and a bakery. The food is good if not spectacular. The french restaurant however disappointed. The food was uninspiring and overpriced. However the service of the very friendly an attentive staff was excellent. The breakfast buffet is a good choice. A good variety of offerings in a lovely presentation. The bread could be better though. The pool and spa are small but sufficient and very clean, In particular the power stream allows for an aggressive swimming work out. Over all the hotel is historic but well preserved and upgraded with a wonderful atmosphere. It is conveniently located in the Gallata district near the tower and allows for easy access to all the major sightd. Al in all a most delightful stay.

A weekend in the past!

Posted Feb 27, 2017
Pros: The feeling of being in a historic hotel.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: You need to master the Tram/Metro so as to see the sights across the bridge. It's easy to do.
Grand hotel with a feeling of the past but in a "modernized" setting with amazing staff.

A true 4-star hotel

Posted Feb 18, 2017
Not much to say other than check out the photos of the hotel and know that the service matches the level of luxury depicted in the photos. It's not a 5-star by world standards but it's easily the best hotel I've EVER found for around $120.

Oasis of comfort amidst all the hustle & bustle

Posted Jan 1, 2017
Friendly and helpful staff overall, but Irem at the Concierge desk made our stay very special. She was a true professional, helping make our stay in the hotel comfortable, and guiding us as we stepped out into the streets and alleys of Istanbul. Her colleague Evren was also very helpful and resourceful. This is the second time we stay at this hotel, and when we go back to Istanbul, we will definitely stay there again. In addition to its history, the hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to Istiklal/Taksim and Galata Tower, and easily accessible to all the city's sites, restaurants, cafes and transportation hubs to the Asian side. Yet, it still maintains its serenity, away from the crowds. Don't miss out on a chance for an outstanding dinner at the small restaurant right across from the hotel - Meze.
