“A very fine place to stay”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

I think it is really difficult to find a hotel you can call PERFECT. There will always be a problem or 2 that will prevent you from giving this hotel a 5 star review.Ok,Pera capitol hotel is not the best you will find in Istanbul. It might has the poorest breakfast i have ever eaten travelling in the world. It surely isn't the biggest room you will stay in. But you know what? I guess the absolutely perfect location it is built,in the most "bohemian" street in Beyoglu(or Pera if you prefer),Asmali Mescit Socagi,gives this hotel several points. The extremely helpful and kind staff of this hotel is another thing to mention,they ever make you ignore the problems. They clean the room every day,they filled the fridge every day,they helped us every day...they even refused to take money when we had to make some calls.Pera Capitol is a cheap hotel,in a fantastic place(1 minute walk from Istiklal street),with some little problems. I surely recommend it!!!

Standard mid-range hotel in Pera. Great location just a block off of Istiklal Avenue with several bars and restaurants nearby, caveat that the streets are not well-marked in Istanbul and it's easy to get lost. The rooms are a bit dated but adequate, though the glow-in-the-dark star stickers on the ceiling and the neon-blue backlit mirror in the room were an interesting touch. The Wifi was not functioning while we were there but they were actively working on fixing it. Breakfast was included and decent. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Hotel condition was good. Room and bathroom was clean everyday. Hotel staff was good and helpful. Location of hotel was very near to the istiklal caddesi and taksim square. Some poor things about this hotel was the WiFi coverage is not consistently good when I stayed in the room. Sometimes it's ok and sometimes it was unable to connect. Another poor things was the hotel is located near to the bars and restaurant which create some noisy environment until late night. However, the hotel price was good for budget traveller with a strategic location in new city of Istanbul.

Very nice hotel for the budget stay. Great location, just 1 minute walk to the Metro station on Istiklial Av. Very clean! Wifi is working excellent. Staff is very nice and very helpful. It was very good value for money, very good price. Breakfast was good as well. I will recommend this hotel to anyone interested in budget stay in Istanbul.

The hotel is located a 3-minute walk from Istiklal. The hotel is clean as cleaned every day, there are slippers. Staff at the reception is very friendly and will help councils where and how to get the destination you want.
Negative side of this hotel is that next to the hotel theres is a restaurant Tekirdag, Friday-Saturday singing, playing music until 3-4 a.m., terribly noisy. We stayed on the fourth floor and is still very noisy, could not sleep. aluminum windows. 3 of 4 rooms on floors located on this street. the room did not look like on the pictures. Very old furniture, 21" TV from 20th century. Mini bar had some water and gassy fluids. No safe box in the room. You can keep you belongings in the safe box next to the reception.

There's no pots in the room, which gave us a little trouble, because we were with children. however, we were told that we can use the kitchen, but in fact it was a dispenser and disposable cups and glasses that we used during breakfast at another time was not allowed. One day iwater in the dispenser was over and they warmed teapot, but with such a favor they gave us water, that after the second glass no longer wanted to drink tea, though, we had our teabags. Breakfast is very skimpy, white cheese, Dutch cheese, sausage, hard-boiled eggs, olives, butter, honey and jam in small packs, cucumbers and tomatoes.
I wouldn't recommend this Hotel, despite it is 4 star hotel, I would call it 2 stars.

Location is great, near Istiklal and Taksim, but the rooms are noisy because of the street downstairs.

Friendly staff.

Breakfast OK, but could be better. You need to come very early to the breakfast if you want to taste the special bread.

WiFi working well.

The furniture is old and the rooms are quite dark. .

Room Tip: You can ask for a room with terrasse.
