“Great location, attentive staff”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Very nice hotel in a great location, which is in walking distance of many great restaurants, bars and boutiques. Staff were helpful and attentive. Rooms were a good size, very clean and I particularly liked the bathroom which had a large walk-in shower. My only small complaint would be that parts of the hotel (e.g. the lifts) are looking a little tired; though not the rooms I hasten to add. Also, I was travelling alone and given a twin room. I would have thought the default should have been a double. These are small complaints really. Overall it’s a very good hotel in a fantastic city.

Room Tip: If travelling alone, be sure to request a double room

Second time I have stayed at this great hotel, we were upgraded to the Golden Horn view. Breakfast, which was superb was included in our rate of 160 euros. The hotel is in a good location very close to Istiklal st. The interior decoration and history of the hotel is magnificent. The staff are super helpful and went out the their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable (the only exception to this was the unhelpful concierge - go figure!!).

Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Golden Horn side offers excellent views

We went to the Oriental Bar for have drinks and some finger food, the cocktails were goods and the schrimps with ginger sauce terrific, Bar staff so nice and welcoming.
The day after we ate the breakfast on it, big buffet, international one and Turkisk pastries but no BlaKlavas, ti was very expensive 190 TL for 2 pax, but it is a high standard hotel .....the bad point was the staff attitude , they were really arrogant with us specially the head Chef .
After we asked for visiting the 101 room, the Museum, Concierge staff opened it with pleasure and gave us some explanation.
Thanks to her.

Room Tip: Service is poor on the Breakfast but excellent on Bar and Front desk!

We booked this hotel because of its convenient location (walking distance to city center of the new town, as well as the bridge to the old town) and it's rooftop bar view of the city of Istanbul, which did not disappoint. It is also located in the middle of a lot of restaurants and cute shops, right next to the main shopping boulevard.

My friend and I shared a twin room at Pera. The room is cozy (small-ish) but clean and comfortable. The staff speak perfect English and the service is attentive. The breakfast buffet has a wide range of selection, which we enjoyed.

All in all perfect for a trip with friend.

Stayed at Pera Palace Hotel for one night as we wanted to stay in the "new" part of Istanbul. After Pera Palace, we moved on to visit some other parts of Turkey and then stayed in the old part of Istanbul (by the Blue Mosque) when we returned to experience that part of the city. Pera Palace was an ideal location for the newer part of Istanbul..it is close to Istiklal avenue--the famous pedestrian street with shopping, restaurants, bookstores, churches, music. The hotel is charming and full of history. The rooms are lovely with nice touches like heated bathroom floors! We had the famed "high tea" and it was very enjoyable. Unfortunately, we did not have a view of the golden horn but had a street view and perhaps because of this, it was noisy at night (we were on a lower floor as well). It was a weekend night and the music of what seemed to be a nearby club went on till past 3am or so it seemed. It was also unfortunate that after their recent renovation, they have not kept the Agatha Christie room as a museum room so we did not get to see it. Having grown up reading Agatha Christie, I was looking forward to seeing the room but it was occupied. Besides that, enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel and the location was terrific.

Room Tip: street view rooms can be noisy (especially perhaps on lower floors)
