"Exquisite hotel with a rich history"
Beautifully decorated luxury hotel and one of the most iconic hotels in Istanbul. You appreciate it so much more when you read up about the history of the hotel. From its heyday as a luxury hotel for the Orient Express passengers to now, it remains a Grand Dame of buildings. For example it was the first non royal building to be powered with electricity and had the first electric elevator in Istanbul installed. Make sure you have tea, drinks or light snacks in each of the main rooms to appreciate the decor that takes you back to yesteryear. Definitely one of my all time favorite luxury hotels.
"A magical and Historical hotel in the heart of Istanbul "
A true 5 star experience! Fantastic location just off Istiklal street and a 10 minutes taxi ride to Sultan Ahmed. The views are beautiful, the balcony was wonderful with a (golden horn) view. Yes, it is worth the extra pay to get it. The windows are huge and you can enjoy the fresh air. Noise from street is noticeable, but, this is Istanbul and not a show stopper. Jumeirah does a great job managing it, you get the excellent Jumeirah service. This is the 9th Jumeirah property that I stay in, a loyal customer. Happy with the quality of service and I think Jumeirah is the perfect manager for this historic property. I can't fault it. Breakfast is yummy with enough options to satisfy all tastes. The lounge is lovely and the terrace is also great for a last minute drink or a late bite.
We've been to many deferent 5 stars Hotel over the wold; this is exceptional you live in a historical experience with a modern touch! Luxury, very pleasant, clean, kind staff and a historical stories every where! Staying in this hotel will give a deferent experience and taste for Istanbul!! Thank you Pera Palace Hotel!
"Loved it - like in 'once upon a time'"
The hotel has it's own class, it is gorgeous. The lobby, the room, the service, the phantastic breakfast (extra charge) you should not miss, never seen like that before. It's a hotel you dream of and that makes your stay even more precious. If the political situation would allow it, we'd definitevely come back right away :-).
"Old lady with style"
A recent business trip to Istanbul allowed the opportunity to stay at The Pera There is no doubt recent events in Istanbul have very badly effected the tourism and leisure industry. The hotel's staff under their excellent GM were charming, friendly, and really an example of how to carry on even through very tough economic times. The Pera is a Grand Lady and a real asset to Istanbul
