“Most amazing hosts ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

I wanted to cry when I left Peradays because the thought of not seeing Murat, Bora & Murat again is too much to bear. The are the most lovely hosts with fantastic advice for your day out, always ready to chat and offer a drink and interesting perspectives on the fascinating city of Istanbul. The rooms are contemporary & quirky, the roof top, although it needs some attention, is a lovely place for a sunset drink and the breakfast is fantastic. I loved Murat's traditional omelette with spinach and we always left the breakfast table full after eating too much! We made friends here and I truly hope to meet them again.

We were hosted by Murat, Borat and Murat for 4 nights and could not have chosen better. Close to Taksim and Galata but away from the hustle and bustle we loved Peradays and would highly recommend it. Our hosts gave us plenty of good advice, help and assistance even waking at 4am to make sure we caught a taxi safely. We felt sad to leave and will definitely be back to stay at Peradays. The breakfast omelette with vegetables is a must to try too!

Murat, Murat and Borat were delightful hosts: charming, friendly and incredibly helpful. I was staying with my son and we both felt as if were welcome guests in someone's home. Breakfasts were amazing with a range of freshly made dishes everyday. Highly recommended!

We stayed there for 3 nights and it was the highlight for our Istanbul stay. Murat is a very kind host with a lot of stories to share. Breakfast is of very high quality and the chef would make different hot dishes everyday. The self-baked carrot cinnamon cake is very tasty, goes perfectly well with the home-made Turkish coffee. :)

We had the nicest experience in this hotel. The owners are so engaged and caring that it's hard to describe this as a hotel. For example, when I wanted to break larger bills, they simply loaned me some smaller bills to use. They gave us great travel advice. The car pick-up service at the airport was also great. The rooms were clean and efficiently designed. Breakfast was always tasty. The location was great, close to Istiklal Street and Taksim Square. Unless you are enthralled with large, corporate hotels, do yourself a favor and stay here.

This was my first stay, but my wife had stayed here 3 years ago and insisted we return. She was right. It was like coming home. The owners are personally involved in managing the hotel and remembered my wife well. Their personalities infuse the hotel with their friendly and hospitable spirit. The hotel is perfect base for a sightseeing trip to Istanbul, well located to get to the main sights quickly and easily and near many outstanding restaurants. Each day started off great with the greetings from the management and a wonderful breakfast, featuring a home-made hot dish - eggs, crepes, etc, something different every day. Outstanding value as well.

Room Tip: We had a loft room which was very spacious and quiet.

I can only subscribe to the superlatives written here insofar. The hotel is pleasant and cozy, the location superb, close to Istiklal ant still quiet, but most than all the hospitality of Murat, Murat and Bora. We felt we really were among intimate friends. Their made all efforts to make our stay enjoyable. I want to thank them from here again and recommend the place wholeheartedly.
