Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.

The room we were in was nice. The bed was comfortable. Good location of the hotel. A thematic breakfast is available each morning. It is close to the pedestrian zone. Good view to the north. There are reserved car seats in front of the hotel, but public parking is close by.

Dear guest, First of all, thank you for choosing Occidental Pera Istanbul during your holidays in Istanbul.
