Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah is located in the dynamic heart of Istanbul,only 20 kilometers, separates you from the Ataturk Airport and few minutes separates you from Istiklal street and taksim square.
"Royalty at its best!"
When you enter the hotel you end up at a traditional style lobby overlooking a cult european coffee shop. After your check-in, the guest manager will take you to your room by 100+ years old elevator. The rooms are spacious and very well maintained. Also the service is very prompt and good. The location is also very good wherein you can be close to the Sultanahmet area as well as the modern part to enjoy night life at Istanbul's Istiklal street. Well surely a big recommendation for all!
"World class service housed in a beautiful historical building"
Staying at the Pera Palace hotel for 7 nights, and with 2 nights left, I figured it was best to write a review before I forgot. The hotel is amazing! 100% the most attentive staff I've experienced from a 5 star hotel. Greeted by every staff, they are professional, very well presented in a suit and bow tie but always smiling making it comfortable and warming. The interiors of the hotel is historical and is museum like. They have the first elevator in Turkey and is the second oldest in Europe. Special credit to the very professional Tayfun who made sure I was always satisfied. It's hard to come by a young person who is genuinely energetic, caring and efficient. Thank you for your top class service! Will definitely stay here on my next trip to Istanbul.
"Enjoy the afternoon tea"
Treat yourself to the afternoon tea at this historic property. Time yourself right, and you can visit Ataturk's room. The tea is absolutely wonderful, and you'll enjoy the delicious buffet in an absolutely beautifully appointed salon. Everything about this hotel is special, but the staff are just a cut above. Everyone is personable and happy to see you. Take an afternoon and sit where Agatha Christie sat, soak up the ambiance, enjoy being here.
Beautiful hotel, classic. Excellent service. I have been in Istanbul several times and always stayed in excellent hotels. This is the classical one. Library is something apart, even if you are not a guest at the hotel is a place to visit in the city.
Where can I start... been to different luxury hotels and this is definitely one of my favorites. The decoration of the hotel (especially in the lounge area on the ground floor) is impeccable and full of style. Room is big (the deco is slightly less impressive than the lounge but still beautiful) and the view on the golden horn is lovely (even more lovely if you are in for a good weather !) Service is of top-notch quality. Wouldn't say very "personal" like small b&bs but professional, helpful and efficient. Facility is great - spa with sauna, indoor pool, jacuzzi, Turkish bath and massages. And except for the massages, all the spa facilities are free of charge for hotel guests. Breakfast is equally awesome: lots of selection from the buffet + freshly made omelettes / pancakes... Cannot pick any flaw from my stay at the hotel. It was a truly great experience ! Keep up the good work ;)
