“Lovely Quaint Hotel...very central location”
Reviewed April 21, 2010

I loved my stay at Pera!!! The rooms are small...but cozy. Hot showers, comfy beds.....with lots of pillows! And they have free WiFi!!!

The staff was great...very helpful and friendly.

The hotel is also right behind a very lively and popular street, it is also close to the subway that takes you right into the Sultan Ahmet area (abt 15mins on the subway).

Im so glad i stayed here...and Ill def go back again!

Nice location, just about 200 meters away from the main street in Taksim. The hotel is really small - maybe about 20 rooms only and did not have a lot of visitors at the time we were there. The staff is polite and friendly, but they can work on improving their English. The rooms are also quite small and the bathroom is tiny. Our shower was broken. There is an LCD TV in the room but I think they only had Turkish channels.
Overall it is a good place for a 3 star hotel but we found it a bit too expensive.

The Pera Hotel has wonderful service and beautiful rooms at a great price. Our beds were super comfortable (and I loved the spotless white comforters). The showers were hot, and breakfast (yummy breads, cereal, hard boiled eggs, cucumbers, olives, cheese, juice/coffee/tea) is served every morning. The hotel has free wireless access and a computer for guests to use in the lobby. The hotel is about a one-minute walk to a popular shopping street with retail stores and many restaurants. (There's also a Turkish bath nearby.) Plus, it's easy to get to other popular tourist destinations, such as the Sultanahmet, by foot or tram. On the whole, the Pera had a very cosmopolitan feel!

hotel is new, very clean, the stuff is great. There are many restaurants and shops around hotel, 1 min on foot from Istiklal Street and you can also walk to the old part of the city - it takes about 25 min. If you don't like this idea you can use Tunnel or metro, the stations are just in front of the hotel.

This is a cozy small hotel, located in the trendy Pera district. I highly recommend this hotel if you want to enjoy the clubs, cafes and restaurants in this area. It can get loud on Friday and Saturday nights, but if you are out and about it might as well. If you are the kind of person that enjoys large hotels with room service then this is not the hotel for you. The rooms are good in size but the bathrooms are very small, specially the showers. We got one of the two suites available and the view was breathtaking. We had a 180 degree view of Istanbul and the magnificent Bosphorus. Suites have larger bathrooms and showers in case you are wondering.
The staff is very friendly and kind. They will go out of their way to help. They make a very good job in making you feel at home.

I stayed at the Pera Hotel in November, 2009. It was a very enjoyable experience. For a hotel which is located in the Beyoglu area, it is value for money. Just a two-minute walk to the Tunel and more importantly to the heart of Istanbul, Istiklal Caddesi (Taksim).

The staff is friendly and willing to answer all of your questions. They are knowledgeable about Istanbul and are able to give you information on the places of attractions. They go the extra mile to make my stay as comfortable and problem free as possible! The rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable. Extra pillows are provided. Fast wireless internet connection is also available. I thoroughly enjoyed the view of the Galata Tower and part of the Golden Horn from my room, which was located on the seventh floor.

But it would have been better if the breakfast area was bigger and with a view to enjoy.

I would love to stay here again!
