Very beautiful European style hotel with an interesting history. The amenities were nice. The staff was professional and accommodating. The breakfast was delicious and they brought so many different kinds of Turkish foods. It was in a very walkable neighborhood, close to restaurants and shops and many of the historical places and attractions. If you go during the pandemic, rest assured that they have very good sanitary and safety practices in place. Staff members wore masks, they had sanitizer readily available, they provided masks for guests, provided the means for social distancing in the public areas.

It just so happened that after 5 months in Thailand, 1 month in New York, we ended up in Istanbul, where we spent almost one month at the Pera Palace hotel. And I think this is a gift of fate! The hotel was built in 1895 for passengers of the Orient Express, it was the first hotel in Istanbul with provided electricity, the first hotel with an electric lift. Famous people such as Mata Hari, Ernest Hemingway, Greta Garbo, Jacqueline Kenedy, Alfred Hitchcock stayed at the Pera Palace Hotel. The well-known novel by Agatha Christie, “Murder on the Orient Express”, was written in this hotel in the room 411. The luxurious furnishings of the hotel are immersed in the historical era of top hats and tuxedos, in a hall with burgundy curtains and silver dishes, you just want to put on a chic dress and savor a cigarette with a long mouthpiece. If you’ll visit Istanbul spend some time in this historical place. Thank you to the hotel for the amenities, exceptional service and wonderful staff ❤️ Special thanks to Ece 🙏 for her wonderful service 🙏🙏🙏

I chose the Pera Palace basically because of it's history, first time in Istanbul so wanted to stay somewhere nice. The hotel itself is located in a very nice area and I was whisked in to reception, met with a warm greeting and swiftly checked in. The room facing "The Golden Horn" was in excellent shape, nice size and large bathroom. I always appreciate hardwood floors. Room was quiet and the mattress excellent, pillows slightly too fluffy. Breakfast was served outside on the veranda and it was lovely, I chose the Turkish breakfast, lots of food! Loved the "cream" and honey on fresh bread. Excellent service. Had a late dinner there one night with friends. they had a live band and the place was packed. They managed though to get us a table as we were staying at the hotel. I really enjoyed staying at the PP, the area opposite the hotel is packed with small restaurants serving delicious food. Very secure area with lots of families strolling about, even at midnight! Highly recommend the PP, terrific hotel, excellent area to stay in. 15m walk to Taksin Square and 10m drive to the shopping area where LV, etc are located.

I stayed one night in this hotel because I considered it an emblematic one for Istanbul. After I was accommodated, my impression is of disappointment, compared to what I expected (but not upset), maybe because of the measures and effects of the pandemic. In essence, the hotel looks deserted, no one was in the beautiful lobby, I only saw a few hotel guests, possibly because it was the end of August ... I will start with the weak points, the most important thing is that the atmosphere is desolate, the hotel empty, the pastry shop closed during the summer, a variety of modest sweets on the terrace. The minibar has only plain water, the slippers are not of the quality you expect at 5 stars and at for the price paid, they are not personalized (with the name, the hotel emblem), simply some slippers that you receive at any 4-star hotel, even the shower gel is insufficient (it was just a small container, not 2 or 4 as you find in self-respecting hotels). My friend, with whom I was and recommended it to me, liking him when he was, said that he does not compare to what he was once (a few years ago). However, the hotel is well maintained, has a special history and a friendly staff. We did not serve breakfast, having left before serving time, but we asked and they prepared a breakfast for us which we served at the airport.

We absolutely enjoyed stay in Pera palace and felt like princesses here. You could feel that energy from the first step, I loved the history which speaks itself and also flower decoration. My favourite place was patisserie de pera and also the great lobby, where you could enjoy afternoon tea and listen to the piano during special days. Each corner of this hotel was very nice, although, I think the rooms are bit outworn, could use some improvement and they were pretty cold in that time, we needed to call the receptionist if we wanted to turn on heating. On the other side, cleaning was very nice and loved the little things as chocolate on your pillow during the evening time. We especially enjoyed the restaurant and orient bar it’s a must when you are there.
