Spent 3 nights at the Pera Palace Jumeirah on a first time trip to Istanbul. Excellent room, spacious, comfortable and clean; Staff were helpful in booking reservations. We used the best rate directly from the website, and this was very good value for the room we stayed in. Did not include breakfast but this is hardly an issue in Istanbul where there are so many options to try.
Easy walking distance to all the fashionable areas of Beyoglu, including Pera, Istiklal Street and Cihangir. Short taxi ride to Sultanahmet to see the sights. Highly recommend this hotel and would happily stay there again.

Stayed at Pera Palace with my boyfriend over the weekend when visiting for a friends wedding. This is my first stay at a Jumeirah Hotel and my high hopes were definitely met. The hotel is interesting due to the history and I was glad to see that they had retained the history and grandeur - it was not as bland and soulless as most of the luxury hotels are. It speaks highly of Jumeriah that they have let the hotel and it's history speak for itself and just put in the Jumeriah touches when it comes to attentive staff and nicely decorated rooms.

The room was a good size with fantastic view of the Golden Horn - try to get a room with a view but higher up in the building as otherwise the Istanbul traffic will cause many sleepless nights.

The breakfast was good with lots of choices but not comparable to getting yourself to a brunch restaurant by the sea.

Location was perfect for what we wanted - rooftop bars, restaurants. Apparently walking somewhere for dinner is Istanbul is unheard of but we were able to walk to the best restaurant in Istanbul - X (and this is saying something).

Only downside is the hotel does not have a rooftop bar itself and it is not by the bosphorus - having said this there is not much to do around the bosphorus apart from some nice hotels so we preferred staying as central as we did and then take a taxi to the bosphorus and bars like Angelique etc.

All in all I would definitely recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with the golden horn view and the higher up in the building the better.

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...
