“Keep looking”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

The staff are courteous and helpful, but there are numerous design and operational problems that one should consider before booking. The first problem to encountered is that the hotel is not accessible to anyone in a wheelchair. The entrance involves three steep steps. Once inside, access to the elevators involves more stairs or a ramp at a 35 degree angle. Two of the three elevators can accommodate only two people (three if they are very small or friendly) or one person and luggage. The third can handle two people and a medium-sized suitcase. The halls are narrow, with many turns. The cleaning carts, when the staff are making up the rooms, take up so much space that one has to turn sideways and sidestep to get past them. The room numbering is idiosyncratic – every room begins with “1”, as in what another hotel would label Room 301, on the third floor (which may vary depending on how the host country numbers floors) is “1301”. Not a problem – just odd.

The bar in the restaurant, when open, plays music very loudly – so loudly one cannot have a quiet conversation. It is not surprise, therefore, that I never saw anyone, during my one-week stay, to be sitting in the lounge. Those who did come in quickly moved to an outside “patio” (loosely defined) where one could enjoy the tray cats that infest Istanbul. The bartender decline two requests to reduce the volume. There is also a lobby bar that is more quiet but with no menu other than drinks. Both facilities close their doors early.

My room was tiny with inadequate storage for clothes or other items. Like many hotels in non-North American countries, no face cloths are provided. I presume this is to save costs. As a result, one is force to use a hand towel, which seems – to this reviewer – to actually increase laundry costs.

The air conditioning in my room was inadequate, even though outdoor temperatures were only in the mid-high 20s during the day. The fact that power to the air conditioning is cut off during the day (if one is not in the room) allows heat to build up and the air conditioning is inadequate to reduce the temperature to a reasonable level until 4 or 5 am, which makes for a very hot, unpleasant night. Bed covers consisted of a heavy duvet and an ornamental pseudo-satin coverlet. The pillows are thick and overly firm, which makes for a stiff neck in the morning. No pillow choices are offered.

Opening the window, which is physical possible, doesn’t offer any relief because the neighboring bars play live music until 2:00 am, followed by loud record music for another couple of hours. I was there for a week and had only two nights of relative quiet.

Some plumbing lines in the ceiling of a colleague leaked; he spent his first night with water dripping on to his bed. He changed rooms the next day but I learned later another guest was moved into the same room with the same leaking plumbing and wet bed.

There is a convenience store next door with some fresh fruit, vegetables, and snacks, and a “bottle store”, with beer and wine next to that. Very convenient and much more affordable than the over-priced mini-bar

In brief: if you can afford alternative hotel – do so.

Dear Sir/ Madam,


I was delighted to see that your stay was generally positive. I was disappointed to hear that you hasd a problem with your AC in the room. AC system had temporary problem and It Works without a problem now.
We have worn bartender about the volume. Leaking problem from seiling has been resolved before other guest check in the room.

We continuously strive to get better and it is through.
Once again thank you for your kind comments and we look forward to welcoming you back soon

Me and my friends had a fine stay at this hotel. Good location nearby restaurants and bars and the shopping street Istiklal. You can easily walk down to the Bosporus and take the old little tram back up the hill. Staff was friendly although at the breakfast buffet there was not much flexibility. Rooms had airconditioning and were cleaned daily. Good value hotel.

Reviewed 30 April 2014

I stayed in this hotel during a long weekend at the end of April 2014. The hotel is located in Beyoglu, exactly Mesrutiet Caddesi, which is 15 minutes fast walk from Taksim square, but I would not call it a "near" to Taksim. You actually have to go through more than half of Istiklal and the whole of Mesrutiet and only then you reach it. If you arrive by airport shuttle, and you have luggage, consider it a 25-30 minutes walk or take a taxi from the shuttle station. Overall the hotel is very nice, though hard to find. The entrance door, though of a decent size, doesn't have any noticeable logo or else. The room - I had a double - was like a double room from anywhere in the world, but was a bit smaller than I would expect a double room to be. Still it had all amenities and a nice shower cabin made from marble-alike stone. Television, except turkish and russian channels, had only BBC World. Wifi works nicely anywhere in the room. I didn't take the breakfast but local food is everywhere and the choice is great, just walk 5 minutes to Istiklal. Housekeeping was nice - I never saw\heard\was disturbed by it. The hotel is very close to both Galata bridge and Sishane metro station. Reception and the lobby staff were nice and helpful. Still, I do not recommend you taking an airport transfer from the hotel, as the transfer driver cheats and doesn't take you to the airport door, but to some garage nearby, claiming that the police closed the airport for cars - which is a lie of course. You will be carrying your luggage all the way an extra several hundred meters and on your way you will see all airport car traffic functioning as usual. I was happy to have only one light case and the hotel staff proved useless when asked for help over the phone. So do yourself a favor and refrain - a taxi or airport shuttle will be much more useful. Also, if you stay over the weekend, sleep quality is the lowest possible, as nearby restaurant area is virtually several meters away from your windows, and the loud noise of music and crowd lasts till 4AM the whole weekend.

We have complained about voice issue to the Municipility and problem has been resolved.

Pera Tulip is near Takism Square -- a more urban, contemporary area of Istanbul. The historic area is the other side of the Golden Horn, across the wonderful Galata Bridge. So you can be in the noisier, more crowded part for tourist attractions, then return at night for great restaurants and nightlife. What could be better?

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor; rooms were quiet. And spend the extra bit of money for the larger room!
