We loved our week-long stay at Pera Palace. The hotel has a great historical component to it (crown molding, antique furniture, rooms names after the hotel's famous/glamorous occupants), but balances the nostalgia as an outpost for the Orient Express with modern conveniences like ipod chargers, comfortable beds with pillow menu, and electronic curtains. Also, the hotel had great attention to... More

Spent 3 nights at the Pera Palace Jumeirah on a first time trip to Istanbul. Excellent room, spacious, comfortable and clean; Staff were helpful in booking reservations. We used the best rate directly from the website, and this was very good value for the room we stayed in. Did not include breakfast but this is hardly an issue in Istanbul... More

Stayed at Pera Palace with my boyfriend over the weekend when visiting for a friends wedding. This is my first stay at a Jumeirah Hotel and my high hopes were definitely met. The hotel is interesting due to the history and I was glad to see that they had retained the history and grandeur - it was not as bland... More

My husband and I recently spent a couple of days in Istanbul and choose to stay at Pera Palace. This historic hotel is truly beautiful and so much more interesting than new 5* hotels belonging to international chains. Our bedroom was perhaps a little bit smaller than average but very nicely decorated and had everything you could wish for, including... More

The hotel overall is ok .. pretty historical but misses the Jumeirah touch with the staff and overall experience. Jumeirah being in my standard the top in the world, have not managed to cascade their knowledge to the staff in Pera Palace. The hotel has still major learnings to go through to really belong to the 'Jumeirah' family. Location is... More

this is a historical building which renovated recently an I really enjoyed my stay. Although the rooms are small, they are well designed with nice furniture. The location is lively, there are very good restaurants around and good nightlife. The staff was also helpful.

Had a pleasant stay at this hotel, great staff, service was excellent, except for the location was a bit noisy. My previous stay two years ago at Grand Hyatt has a better location, but overall it wasn't a regret to experience this hotel. I highly recommend their grand studio room, highly spacious.

Just spent three nights at what has to be reviewed as the most welcoming and attentive hotel I have had the pleasure to stay at in Istanbul. Please remember that this hotel is classified as an 'historic hotel' although in my opinion worthy of a five star classification. Obviously with a building that is steeped in history, there may be...

it's not very often that a hotel positively surprises me, but this one did. i had my reservations about staying in a museum hotel, but thanks to a recent renovation pera palace managed to deliver a pleasant mix of the modern and classical. there are many historical items (at display, or being used) at the hotel, which immerses you in...

We had lunch at the Pera Palace Hotel in the Orient Terrace Restaurant. The views from the hotel of Istanbul are just breathtaking! The service at the restaurant is great, and the staff are well informed about the property- while we were waiting for our food we found out that not only Jackie Kennedy, Agatha Christie, British royals and Alfred...
