I've been to Istanbul often, this time being the first at this hotel. This has been one of the finest hotel stays for me worldwide. I've stayed at the best in Paris or Rome. Here you have (most vital) a wonderful, warm staff (headed by Cumhur Buyukyuksel and also Bicun Schwindt). Service is without equal, and the staff cares. The... More

We're a family of four and stayed in family 'suite' (two adjoining rooms with an interlocking door) on the 12th floor over Easter. The view over the city was impressive (and in my view not worth paying the 30% premium to have a sea view which you could see from the rooftop for free.) The restaurant at the top of... More

Best option out of dozens I've lived in Istanbul during the last year. Greatest view, very strong solid quality of 4 stars. Very convenient location near by Istiklal. Sishane metro near by. We are not so picky on breakfast but the choice is rather limited. I would say that their buffet is the only sign of a 4 star hotel... More

Stayed for a full week for business and the hotel was excellent. The meeting rooms are bright, filled with daylight. The catering is fantastic and the staff is prompt and accommodating. All rooms are nice and clean, functional and provide a nice view. I would recommend this hotel also for the location close to shopping and restaurants, it's easy to... More

I was taken to this hotel in February by my airline after being stranded in Istanbul aiport for 6 hours due to snow. To say I was not a happy bunny on arrival was an understatement. The journey from the airport to the hotel was endless. I arrived at 1.30 am and was greeted by very pleasant reception staff and,... More

The hotel itself is OK (only OK) but the noise from the nearby clubs make this place impossible to stay in - that is, if you want to sleep at night. I understand that this problem is out of the control of the hotel.

The Marmara Pera is a nice hotel in the 1980 style. In there middle of the city and of course not in a quite environment. My concern is about the "non smoking" area. In my room it starts heavily smelling from somebody smoke close to my room. I thought it was a "non smoking" level.. so why it smells so... More
