Everything was perfect,the service, the room, the breakfast, location... Two small buildings opposite each other (restored old Istanbul houses), very nice furniture. Short walking distance to Taksim square and Istiklal with a lot of bars, cafés... Metro station and nostalgic tram are also near (ca 7min walk). Tram to Sultanahmet (Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace, Grand Bazar) takes 15min.
Thanks to the very nice owner and the staff, especially Burak.

Stayed in the hotel for 5 nightsand had a very nice time. Staff is all very friendly and the rooms are all clean. We had the rooftop suite that was very spacious but you should beware of your head ;) Perfect WiFi everywhere.
The hotel is very central near Taksim where you`ll find heaps of shops, restaurants, bars, clubs,... it is a small ride to the old town but quite easy to do. For us it was perfect since it was our second stay in Istanbul and we`ve seen all the old town last time (hope nothing changed otherwise we missed out...)

A very nice hotel centered right next to Taksim Square, very easy to find and very suitable if you're going on vacation. I would have to say that the staff was very friendly and at your service at all time. Clean and cozy, good breakfast .. I would very much recommend this hotel.

Stayed for two nights in Villa Pera Suite and was pleasantly surprised by the Turkish hospitality that I continued to recieve in this Istanbul hotel as well (following my stays in Pamukkale and Goreme). Firstly, Mr. Burak was very kind to send me a mail with the details of how to walk to the hotel from Takshim square and when I was there before doing any check-in formalities, offered me Turkish tea and snacks which was very refreshing after my early morning start from Cappadocia.
Burak also helped me with a city map and was giving suggestions on what to explore in the city.
Other staffs - Özge & Derya - were also very helpful, kind & friendly.
The rooms are classy and bathroom was good.
Breakfast was just perfect and they didnt mind serving me early morning coffee which I always prefer to have.
Overall very nice hotel to stay and highly recommended for family or solo stays!

Excellent location, convenient for Taksim Square but outside of the busy area. Small, clean room, modern bathroom, good free wifi and helpful staff. Breakfast was nice. 5min walk from airport bus which is pretty convenient too. Will consider it again.

This hotel is excellent value for money. The manager, his staff were outstanding and made our stay extremley enjoyable. It is a perfect location for Taksim, just 200 walk away. Shops restaurants all close by. There's also a convenience store less than 100m from the hotel for cheap snacks. Very quiet location at night.

Everything about our stay was handled extremely well in December 2013. The room we had was perfect for a child as there was a large bedroom and a large living area (kitchen, table, couches, TV, utensils, etc.). Much more convenient than being cramped into a small hotel room.

The manager, Burak, was over-the-top with helpfulness and hospitality. Anything we needed to know, he would share or go find on the internet. The rest of the staff, evening desk and breakfast, was also extremely kind. I normally do not sing the praises with 100% positive reviews, but everything on this visit was more than expected.

About a four minute walk to Taksim (lots of cats along the way). Only downside was the that the taxi driver could not find the hotel.

Highly recommend this place for its comfort, hospitality, customized assistance, and nice rooms.

Positive - help of staff, room size, room decor, hotel location, easy for families
Down side - only small detraction was the street that you walk down to get to the hotel was not the nicest.

Room Tip: Delux suite was very large and comfortable
