“Amazing views”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Probably the best views of the Bosphorus! We went there in winter and enjoyed a cup of tea inside as we looked out, but there's also a one-way cablecar that can take you down to the ground-level.

Quite a cosy place though, so careful of too many crowds in summer.

The kids enjoyed it as we rode is a cable car. Other than that, they only serve tea in Pierre Loti Cafe. If is very cold on the hill.

“cable car is good”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Pierre Loti is one of my favorite place and it's nice to reach there by cable car. Unfortunately the elevator was out of order, but escalators were ok. Always crowded place. Nice view, quick service.

“Fantastic view”
Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

I decided to take the cable car uphill - it was short and sweet. And then the look out area - the panorama view was just wow! The crowd wasn't too bad. Even saw a coffin on a green van, to be burried there I presumed. The walk downhill was pleasant and again offered an interesting view, cemetry with beautiful view of the Golden Horn and the Eyup Sultan Mosque. Tip - use an Istanbulcard. You can use it on the ferry, bus and even the cable car.

“GLORIOUS PANORAMIC VIEW”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

The cable car ride to the top of Pierre Loti was just outstanding. Once there the view of Istanbul is just glorious. This is the best view of the city. Wander around the grave sites and you will see many old (1400's) to recent. The cafe serves great Turkish coffee. The atmosphere is of a relaxing mood, no one is in a hurry to leave.
