Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We read a book (Midnight at the Pera Palace Hotel) about this historic hotel a few years ago (although haven’t yet seen the Netflix series by the same name) so expectations were high. The stay itself was just as memorable as we’d hoped. The hotel is pretty amazing - each room is like stepping back in time - but what we didn’t necessarily expect was to get such good service. The hotel is very well staffed and they all went above and beyond to make our stay special. Additionally, the hotel is walking distance from so many historic sites, great restaurants and shopping. I highly recommend!

we went to the pera palace for an aperitif and they immediately told us that the bar was closed due to the lack of a bar tender... a place like this without a bar tender and during the xmas holidays... table service questionable: waiters who don't speak english and rather clumsy, certainly due to their young age, bouquet of plastic flowers as a table decoration. the historic and majestic elevator is unusable because it is always out of service as we were told. but the really irritating thing was the denial of the wi fi password because we were not guests of the hotel... uncommentable. however, I will want to return because it is a place out of time but which would be worth rearranging to give it the right ancient splendor.

Gamze went above and beyond to make all our dining experiences superb at the Pera Palace Hotel. She is most attentive to one's needs and a true asset to the hotel. Our room was clean, comfortable, spacious , and yet reminiscent of a bygone era. Afternoon tea, accompanied by piano music, was delightful. The Ataturk quarters were historical and the famous elevator, 1 of the 1st of its kind in Europe, are a must see.

Sorry to say this was a real disappointment. We paid top dollar for the Agatha Christie suite, and it was not worth it. The bed was just awful- so uncomfortable that we were in pain each morning. And it is NOT a King Size bed as advertised on the website. Many problems with poor service. The concierge allegedly reserved us a table at a restaurant on-site that was closed. The staff did not know which restaurants/bars were open, and did not know if they served food or not. The bartender in the main bar couldn't make a simple martini. I'm so disappointed in this hotel. Would not recommend.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the Agatha Christie suite if you have a bad back- the bed is just terrible.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The history of the building is amazing, it even has its very own museum. But in-spite of its grandeur, it is cozy and warm. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is centrally located and situated a hop, skip and jump away from İstiklal Caddesi which offers a wide choice of shopping and restaurants.

Beautiful hotel steeped in history. Originally constructed to host the guests of the orient express, this luxurious hotel has hosted the who's who in this part of the world, and is a favorite place of author Agatha Christie (her room can be booked too) where she wrote Murder on the Orient Express. The hotel still has the luxury, elegance and charm of it's old times. The rooms are simple and nice with great views of the golden horn. The restaurant (named Agatha) had an excellent breakfast buffet, the bar and the lounge area were great too. There are many historical artifacts and pictures placed around the hotel to remind of it's legendary history. A unique and wonderful stay.

Both evenings there were very noisy events in the hotel which were easily heard from the rooms. The second night this went on very late. It seems the hotel are more focussed on the income from this than the comfort of their resident guests. The room was dark, the bathroom badly lit. The bar service was inefficient and surly. The hotel has a lot of history but offers little else.

I am not impressed by the staff, brusque and unfriendly. Does not do justice to an otherwise a reasonably nice hotel. Plus, When you stay in this hotel during busy season it is impossible to get out by taxi as the place seems to be grid locked by extreme traffic congestion. There is no space for guests to sit down and relax whilst waiting for next appointment. All spaces on level level are commercial outlets. Food was also disappointing.
