Like staying in a museum. You really get a sense of Istanbul’s massive culture and history. Hemingway and Agatha Christie stayed there with the orient express. The halls are glorious. The staff professional on the formal side. Indoor pool was closed. Housekeeping was almost comically dedicated, helpful and kind. Room service was great. Spa did not look particularly inviting. Outdoor restaurant was great and my room was great despite a bit of noise from traffic and some club that played music I believe til midnight every night. I stayed for three weeks. I think 3-5 days would have gotten the best out of the hotel and I should have gotten a place with more outdoor space and a big pool after. Excellent location. Don’t forget to see Ataturk’s room turned into a museum. It really brings turkey’s history alive for you. Great intro to Istanbul.and oh, location, location, location.

Chose it because of its history with the oriental express and Agatha Christie. Got so much more. Everyone was kind and Helpful. We stayed as a couple twice on arrival and before departure. They changed our room immediately. We had asked for a king bed on both stays and our things were in 2single beds. They switched the room instantaneously and everyone was kind and helpful. We had a rental car and they Parked it and brought it back. The breakfast was excellent as well as the room service when we had dinner in our room the first two nights in istambul. It was a wonderful experience. We highly recommend it and would stay again given the chance. Laura and john

Very posh, historical hotel. The room was smaller than expected. The king size bed was super comfortable. Breakfast was great, and hotel staff were very welcoming and nice.

We had a wonderful experience at the Pera Palace Hotel! I give the hotel a top score -6/5:). The hotel is a historic beauty; the staff are very welcoming, friendly, thoughtful, kind, and cater to your every need. The hotel is very clean, the beds are comfortable, and the rooms are spacious. The restaurant was fantastic, staff were amazingly friendly, and the spa was incredible! I can’t say enough about the concierge Saba Ece Ozkan! She went out of her way to assist us (even spent time with me on the on the phone before we arrived), arranged transportation and special VIP service to and from the airport, and helped arrange our daily activities/tours. Concierge Evren Esen was also very helpful! We were sorry to leave the hotel after spending six nights!

We loved our stay at the hotel. The facility is elegant, clean with very friendly and helpful staff. The location is also very desirable and close to Taxim square and Istiklal street. we will sure stay at the same place should we travel to Istanbul in future. Ali A. Amini, MD

Pera Palace is a nice hotel with great rooms, fair size, walkable, hotel staff really helpful, nice neighborhood. In the negatives, food from its restaurant not good and expensive, and pick up service from the airport also really expansive.

We really enjoyed our stay at this historic, beautifully renovated hotel and we highly recommend it. The service is truly exceptional, the staff is very attentive and the location is excellent.

This wasn't my first time staying at the Pera Palace nor will it be my last! The location is unparalleled and the history of the property is fantastic as well. The beds are comfortable, and kindly include a pillow menu from which to choose! You don't want to miss out on this beautiful property.

Everything was amazing, from the beautiful Bosphorus view to the bathroom Bvlgari amenities.

This is a beautiful place with great history and all the amenities you could ask for. Perfect for a romantic getaway, and not too expensive.
