My husband and I recently spent a couple of days in Istanbul and choose to stay at Pera Palace. This historic hotel is truly beautiful and so much more interesting than new 5* hotels belonging to international chains. Our bedroom was perhaps a little bit smaller than average but very nicely decorated and had everything you could wish for, including very comfortable beds and a Nespresso machine. The hotel staff was fantastic, always there to assist you with a smile. We especially appreciated the servants on the terrace who were ever so friendly and took the time to tell us about Istanbul and everyday life in Turkey.

The hotel overall is ok .. pretty historical but misses the Jumeirah touch with the staff and overall experience.
Jumeirah being in my standard the top in the world, have not managed to cascade their knowledge to the staff in Pera Palace. The hotel has still major learnings to go through to really belong to the 'Jumeirah' family.

Location is excellent - room ammenities are 'upgraded' - internet is horrible ( depends on the day timing ) - food & beverage are pretty average for a 5* Hotel.

Would I stay here again ? .... Hmmmmm ... no !

Room Tip: Choose a room that is not on the construction side

this is a historical building which renovated recently an I really enjoyed my stay. Although the rooms are small, they are well designed with nice furniture. The location is lively, there are very good restaurants around and good nightlife. The staff was also helpful.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room, it could be very noisy outside untill very late...

Had a pleasant stay at this hotel, great staff, service was excellent, except for the location was a bit noisy. My previous stay two years ago at Grand Hyatt has a better location, but overall it wasn't a regret to experience this hotel. I highly recommend their grand studio room, highly spacious.

Just spent three nights at what has to be reviewed as the most welcoming and attentive hotel I have had the pleasure to stay at in Istanbul.
Please remember that this hotel is classified as an 'historic hotel' although in my opinion worthy of a five star classification. Obviously with a building that is steeped in history, there may be a few things that the building could not provide in comparison to a new build. Some of the bedrooms may be slightly smaller than those found in new build 5 star property.
Service throughout our stay was exemplary, being attentive but never intrusive. Cocktails on the terrace were well blended and presented to a high standard.
Overall a magical stay and one I hope to repeat in the near future.
