This hotel is one of my favorites in Istanbul, Taksim area. It's a VIP+ hotel so bonuses are possible. The location is perfect for being around the action. It is located just a street away from all the Taksim action, without all the noise! Also, there are 2 metro stations near it, which enables ease of access throughout most of... More

Staff at reception was very obliging at any time.. we asked e.g. for a recommendation for having dinner and they really cared about it.. they didn't only provide us with recommendations but also with a reservation at the restaurant we...

Cafe Marmara is located at the entrance to The Marmara Pera Hotel. The hotel itself towers (19 floors) over urban Istanbul - it's only one block off the main pedestrian street Istiklal Caddesi but I only ate lunch in the café so can't comment on the hotel. The cafe is very modern but I thought it had a warm and... More

Very well located hotel with comfortable though small rooms and very responsive service. Has one of the best and most inventive restaurants in Istanbul and close to many good restaurants. The rooms have nice views. Ideal hotel for exploring urban Istanbul and its many cuisine and cultural delights.

3 friends spent our annual city break in Istanbul this year. The hotel was smart on the inside and well located within a short walk from lots of good restaurants, bars and shops, as well as the Galata Tower. Our rooms were comfortable and from the 16th floor had a great view across the historic city. The hotel staff were... More

We arrived late on a rainy evening, having just been taken by a taxi driver. Unfortunately you do have to be careful with taxi drivers in Istanbul (the slight of hand "you gave me me a 5 instead of a 50" is apparently a well known ploy so be watchful). Thankfully, Erhan was at the front desk to check us... More

The hotel is located at a ver nice area, lots of restaurants, bars, cafes in the streets around it, a couple of blocks away from Istiklal Caddesi street. Staff is very hospitable, rooms are spacious and clean. The view from the bar at the top is amazing, especially at sunset.
