Staying at Pera Palace was the perfect choice for us for a visit to Istanbul.
We greatly appreciated all the comfort in the contemporary suites combined with tradition in a historic building. We stayed in a golden horn view room on the 5th floor, which was excellent. The suite was luxurious and even with more space than we had expected from the pictures. Very comfortable beds and convenient bathroom.
Take into account when you make your reservation that the 6th, 4th and 2nd floor are smoking and that there are no balconies on the 5th floor.
We enjoyed having tea one afternoon at the Pera Palace Saloon Tea Lounge, being part of the experience, and took advantage of the facilities included in the rate relaxing every day after the visits in the Turkish bath, steam bath and indoor swimming pool.
The service was first class and the location close to Galata Tower and in a very lively area, perfect for us.
All in all, we would not hesitate to stay again at Pera Palace!
