We were at this hotel beginning of december.Since the prices are above our regular budget we had to go with the standard/pera view room.In our case a room on the second floor facing the street behind the hotel.You could still see the place in front of the hotel.We didnt mind that at all.One should be aware that the rooms with view are facing a busy fast traffic local expressway kind of thing.We had a little balcony and made the most out of that.The room itself was very tastefully decorated,the brand new furniture had an antique look,but in a good way.There is a window between bathroom and sleeping area,which means you should be very confidant or a happy couple if you are not travelling solo.All the lovely little touches like the weatherforecast on the pillow etc,things which are so easy and leave a happy guest.Our rate didnt include breakfast,but there are lots of cafes around,we had our breakfast at the restaurant on top of the galata tower,which must be the best view of Istanbul.The staff at check in was very helpfull,friendly and professional.Hotel in walking distance of Beyoglu.You have the history of this hotel and yes, the elevator,which is part of the gimmick.I was quite done with the Agatha Christy thing after two nights,could be probably really diffcult if you stay for more nights or trying to get business done i would imagine.There is also a TV channel dedicated just to the very moving history of the Palace Hotel....may be i just saw it in a endless loop falling asleep i am just thinking.Anyway,this a an amazing place.The (hotel)world would be a better place with more hotels like this.We will come back exactly to this one!
