“a wonderful historic hotel”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

The hotel was fabulous and we loved it!! If you appreciate historic hotels this is one of the finest, and I felt special just for being there. Our rooms were beautiful, with fully modernized bathrooms. The décor was exquisite throughout the hotel, with many old pieces preserved from its fabulous history - it was a pleasure to walk around - to use the old elevator, see the museum rooms and just feel the history. My only regret was having to leave.

Room Tip: While side services were a bit expensive, (breakfast was not included and drinks in the Orient Bar w...

The hotel is nice and has character but watch out: unlike every other hotel in the area, breakfast isn't included in the price of this hotel. In fact, they charge $100 for two for breakfast. This isn't mentioned until you check in.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing your experience from your recent stay with us on Tripadvisor.
I am glad that you’ve liked the hotel but it seems that we’ve missed the opportunity to inform you that we’ve got other options for breakfast too, such as our Continental breakfast and the Patisserie de Pera where you can have your breakfast with a lot of varieties.
Once again, thank you for sharing your comments.

One of the most unusual hotels I've ever been to in that you literally feel the rich history behind this property. I was actually completely unaware of the history or museum aspect before going there so was astonished on arrival; lots of majestic pieces within that make walking around the place really interesting! As to the rest, everything to be expected from a top hotel in what has been a travel destination for a very long time!

Recently spent a few nights at the Pera Palace attending a work conference and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The old building has been beautifully restored, with modern rooms, a nice breakfast and great restaurant. The Orient bar is a nice place for a drink, however a little pricey compared to a couple of local bars around the corner. They also serve high tea in one of the huge and ornately decorated sitting rooms. The location is fantastic, only a short walk up one of the side alleys to the pedestrian walkway that leads all the way up to Taksim Square. There are some great options for eating local cuisine in the many side streets that lead off the pedestrian walkway also, so i'd encourage you to go and explore and try some of these out. If your looking for some nightlife, these always plenty in short walking distance to keep you entertained. Would highly recommend and look forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: The 6th floor is the smoking floor.

Pera Palace Hotel provides a significant opportunity for those who are eager to see the authentic face of Istanbul and to experience a classy accommodation enriched with timeless beauty and elegance. The reason I visited the Hotel was a weekend holiday with my girlfriend. From the very first moment of my reservation until the check out, the staff has treated us with utmost respect and has responded to our every demand with explicit motivation to please the customer. We asked the breakfast to be served in our room; therefore, we had the opportunity to start the day with a rich menu of food and beverages, and no need to mention the tremendously beautiful view of the Golden Horn form our balcony. Pera Palace is strongly recommended to all those who seek for a stylish and qualified stay in Istanbul.

We had such attentive service at the Patisserie from Nurten that we returned a week later for a birthday tea. The setting is perfect and the handmade chocolates and cheesecake are fantastic.
The greatest surprise was running into Nurten one day on the main street in this city of 15 million.

Very beautiful hotel in a good historical location of Istanbul. The hotel has its unique European style with a long history. It was built in 1895 and also is considered as a museum. The rooms are spacious, with a nice view of an old town. It is located in a popular spot of Istanbul restaurants and bars. The service was good as well as the spa. We loved the Turkish bathing procedure, highly recommended!
