“Great way to experience Istanbul”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Great location - it's outside of the touristy area but within close distance to all of the major sites (by taxi, public transportation or walking). You’re closer to Taksim square where the locals hang out and variety of restaurants are all within a short walk. The views from the rooftop terrace are breathtaking. The restaurant at the top is a great fine dining experience but rather expensive. The rooms are a bit small but stylish and clean. You will enjoy your stay at the Marmara Pera hotel and Istanbul.

We've been in the Marmara Pera for one week in March. It was probably the best hotel in Istambul in the 80s-90s but it shows some signs of age. But it's still a food option for a touristic staying in the city.
Good location in the most active area of the city. The sights on the terrace are unbeliavable and certainly the best views of Istambul. The reception and lobby need some refreshment but are ok. Rooms are not big but confortable and with glass walls to the outside. Staff is friendly and services are good.
Good experience but having spent several days walking around I saw several charming hotels that could be good alternatives.
There are no words for Istambul (maybe "super-fantastic"?...). We loved it and look forward to bejng there again.

The Marmara Pera is quite elegant, the rooms are very nice, the pool is small but has an amazing view of Istanbul and it turn into a bar in the evening which is lovely (even that tourist come here for drinks)
The Gym is decent and the service is excellent.
Location wise is great as it is the end of Istiklal street where it is quitter, and "the better end" of that busy street, the hotel sits on the corner of couple of really good restaurants.
it is a good choice for the busy Istanbul, will stay there again

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in mid-September. We found the location to be very central; extremely close to Galata Tower and walkable to the major sites. The front desk told us it would be "very difficult" to walk to sites like the Hagia Sophia, and instead recommended the tram, but we walked anyway with no issues at all; it only took about 20-30 minutes, and allowed us to see the area and explore different streets.

The room and bathroom were pretty small but nicely, if generically, decorated. The hairdryer in the bathroom was completely ineffectual and the shower stall leaked big puddles onto the floor each time we showered.

The bar on the roof has great views over the river; get there well before sunset if you want a good seat. I tried to use the pool on the roof one day but it was extremely windy, so even though the days reached 80 degrees or so, it wasn't pleasant to lay out in a bathing suit. There were very few chairs by the pool--maybe 4. The pool is quite small.

We did like the breakfast buffet a lot; good variety and quality offerings.

If we go to Istanbul again we will likely stay elsewhere; this hotel is fine but we would probably look for a place with a bit more character and creature comforts.

Istambul is a beautiful city to be visited many times as very new trip offers you new experiences. I usually stay at The Marmara Pera Hotel, which is my favourite in town.It is a new hotel, perfectly located at Taksim area, with great views, specially from their terrace with tasty cocktails. Excellent room service and nice food.

There are two great things about this Hotel: the breakfast buffet and the view from the bar situated at the top floor. On the negative side, the size of the bathroom (I´d say 3x5ft). The room we stayed in (no. 606) isn´t big, by any means, but we had enough space for our luggage, so I guess it´s OK. Complimentary wine bottle and chocolate covered strawberries were a nice touch on arrival. Closeness to subway and funicular isn´t really very important as they are not interconnected and you have to pay a new fare when you change trains, buses, etc. I found taxis are pretty cheap in Istambul when compared to the final cost of taking several other means of tranportation (just make sure they turn on the meter, even when traffic is heavy - beware of drivers that propose a fixed price for the ride - one was going to charge me 85 LT for a 25 LTworth ride). After 4 days of Istambul I did not reach a conclusion as to the best area where to stay. On my next visit I will probably try another part of town.

Room Tip: If you want a view to the Bosphorus it will have to be on the higher floors and turned towards the b...

Centrally located . Walkable distance to Istikbal Caddasei.
Hotel Rooms are good. But ask for nice view rooms mostly in the upper floors.
Break fast was very good.
Roof top swimming pool is amazing .
Roof top view is excellent right round..
Neatly maintained.
Front desk was very helpful in arranging tours.
Bar at roof top was overflowing with people enjoying the night life with music.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have better view.
