Peradays is a small b&b with an excellent location in Beyoglu. The owners of the hotel are very friendly, professional, and helpful. They were incredibly gracious and made us feel right at home. On the first night that we arrived, Murat personally walked us to one of his favorite restaurants and helped us order our meal. We truly appreciated that extra touch as we were tired from traveling and just wanted to eat something good and go to bed without having to navigate the neighborhood. In addition, they made a number of recommendations for restaurants and also a jazz club which we enjoyed very much.
We stayed in room #1, which is right above the reception area. I would not recommend this room if you are a light sleeper (like me) since you can hear every single noise from below. The room itself was fine, although there were two twin beds that we pushed together rather than one queen or full. Perhaps this was listed on the website and I missed it, but we would have preferred one larger bed.
The hotel also has a terrace which isn't particularly scenic, but it was nice to sit up there with a cup of tea in the morning or evening. Breakfast was lovely, but got a bit repetitive as the same thing is served each day (tomatoes, cucumbers, meat, cheese, bread, jam, omelette, olives). On some days they served a delicious cheese and honey crepe.
The location is fantastic- 10 minute walk to Tunel which is an underground train that will connect you to the tram that you will take to all of the touristy sites in Sultanahmet. The hotel is around the corner from the main strip that is filled with restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops. The block that the hotel is on appears a bit shabby at first glance, but it is quite safe and we were totally comfortable once we got our bearings. Unless you are only going to Istanbul for the touristy sites, I would highly suggest staying in Beyoglu as there is far more to do here even though you have to travel 15-20 minutes to do some sightseeing. The trams are very easy to use once you learn the system, however, there really weren't any good maps available so you kind of have to figure it out on your own.
