“A hotel with a soul”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

I've come to understand that great hotels aren't just about the rooms, facilities and amenities, they're mostly about the passion of the people that run them. Murat and Murat are born to do this. They genuinely care about their guests, they're both friendly and professional and are always smiling, despite the long hours they work. Always there to help you. Remarkable!
Everything here comes together to create a homey feeling. The reception area looks like an art gallery, the rooms are amazing, tastefull and spotless. They even give you the hotel's front door key along with your room key! Does it get more homey that this?
Combine all that with the hotel's perfect, and i mean PERFECT, location and there you have it!
One other reviewer wrote that Peradays is his Istanbul home address.. Well, it's mine too now!

An exceptional stay with exceptional hosts! It was my first trip to Istanbul and I had spent many hours researching a place to stay. Murat and Murat, the two owners, welcome you and engage you as if you were family. What a fantastic way to experience the friendly and warm hospitality of Istanbul! A great remodeling of a heritage property in an area were you can easily and safely walk to phenomenal and authentic food restaurants and markets. Also close to more popular attractions like Galata Tower and a great old/new shopping district. Without a doubt, I will be back at Peradays!!

Just a quick note: my friends and I had a wonderful, safe stay at the Peradays. It is within walking distance to many of the attractions we were interested in and they provided us with individual, specialized service that really helped to make our trip a great experience. For example, a close to midnight run to the store for us to fill a unique and unexpected need, as well as intra-Istanbul transfer and travel arrangements and recommendations of sites to see anbd fabulous restaurants. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Three of us shared the loft room and it was great!

When on vacation, usually it is hard to find the perfect spot where one feels like home, but also can feel the privilege and the comfort of staying at a hotel. Peradays in Istanbul shows that it is actually possible to stay at a very 'cool' and charming hotel while it still feels like home. Thanks to the owner-duo Murat and Murat, while staying in Peradays, one feels like there is no one else staying at the hotel in that period as each guest gets to be the center of attention that is accompanied by a great service.
What is also great is that the hotel's advantage of being right in the middle of Istanbul night life finds its justice as every guest gets a prepared-to-order Turkish style breakfast no matter how late the time is.
PS. Look no further for the cutest cat in Istanbul: Ilach, the permanent resident of Peradays, is the cutest little cat you can ever find. Ask for him!

Room Tip: room 6 can be a good one.

Great place to stay! Very strategic position in the heart of taxim and of the all city as well, surrounded by shops, restaurants, pubs, every kind of place indeed, and always full of people. For young people this is the best place, in sultana met you would not have so many opportunities. The Peradays is managed by nice people, who will welcome you and delight your time spent there, Talkative people and great host. You will not ever feel just as a hotel guest, that is something more. Rooms are furnished modern, nice room actually. Breakfast served at every time, no hurry for timings. I would definitely suggest Istanbul as one of the most beautiful city ever seen and Peradays as the best place to stay!

Their level of service and hospitality is only matched by my mothers when I go back to Edinburgh! The hotel is in a great location, the rooms are comfortable, smart and trendy and it is run by two of the nicest, most accommodating people i've ever met. These guys have set the bar against which I will judge every other hotel experience. I fear I am setting myself up for eternal disappointment! Go to Istanbul, stay at peradays, it's as simple as that.

There's a reason the reviews for this place are so consistently high. To be more precise, there are two reasons: Murat and Murat. Never in all of my travels have I been made to feel so welcome and felt so comfortable at a hotel, but these guys really go above and beyond to help their guests feel at ease.

The location is ideal, as you are less than 2 minutes from Istiklal and very close to a number of great restaurants and sights in the Beyoglu neighborhood. At the same time, you feel as if you're immersed in the local environment in a safe and hip neighborhood.

The hotel decor is sort of Istanbul-meets-NYC, and it really works. Lots of IKEA stuff, and the rooms and lobby are very comfortable and inviting. We were in room 6, and it was definitely roomy and nice. The bathroom is small but clean and sufficient. They provide soap, shampoo, and conditioner, along with some really huge fluffy towels. The bedding is crisp, soft cotton, and the bed is quite comfortable. The rooms also come with a flat screen TV (with satellite, mostly Turkish and Arab channels), a big bottle of water, and a tea kettle. It was one of the few hotel rooms I've ever stayed in that I actually enjoyed hanging out in! The weather was rather cold and rainy, so we weren't able to take advantage of the cute little balcony. The windows were remarkably sound-proofed, and we had no issues with outside noise. There is a mosque about 500 feet away, so you will hear the call to prayer early in the morning, but it's part of the charm of travelling in Turkey!

The breakfast every morning was one of the highlights. There was always plenty of bread, butter, jam, olives, cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, coffee, and tea. Every morning, there was always some kind of extra surprise, like cake, cookies, crepes, or menemen (scrambled eggs with peppers and tomato). Be warned: You will go home craving the menemen! I don't even normally like scrambled eggs, but I ate that stuff like there was no tomorrow. No matter how late we got up, they were always wiling to accomodate us. Sometimes, we filled up on breakfast and didn't eat again until dinner.

Many nights, we would hang out with one of the Murats in the lobby drinking wine, beer, or raki and talking about all kinds of things. They are both incredibly kind and interesting people! The older Murat was quite helpful in coordinating our New Year's Eve plans, and even managed to negotiate a discounted rate for us. When our flight got cancelled and we ended up staying 2 extra days in Istanbul, the younger Murat found a nice apartment for us to stay in and also negotiated a good rate for us. They really took care of us like we were family!

The maid is also very kind and helpful. She does a great job keeping the place clean and always greeted us with a warm smile every morning as she brought our breakfast to the table.

We definitely intend to return to Turkey one day, and when we do, we will definitely include at least a couple of nights at Peradays. I would honestly recommend this place to anyone, no matter your travel style or budget.
