So, i stayed two days in Rixos Pera after was spending few days in amazing Hilton Bomonti Hotel in Istanbul. The good thing about Rixos Pera is its location, its very good one with many upper class restaurants around. Istiklal shopping street is just nearby. Hotel itself is not that fancy for 5*, but since it is a city hotel, we cant compare it with hotels which are built in an isolated areas. Staff is ok, nothing special and nothing extra ordinary. But there are few guys on the reception who did it very profiessionally their job, and i really liked it. It was a Mr. Tolga and Mr.Emrah. It was about some issues regarding wifi (which needs to be paid for and also for an extending room for 1 night more), they sorted out these questions very quickly and on both our satisfaction. Spa area is nice, but not that big. There is no swimming pool in the hotel. In our price was included breakfast, which took place in the last floor of the hotel. So at peak time, shortly before 10am was really crowded, and area for breakfast is really really small one for 5* property. And the choice was not that smthng u cry for. But it was fine, since the price was ok for such location. Actually location is not perfect, since its near very busy street, but at the end of the day its Istanbul and if you wanna be in the middle of happening that u gotta count with it. Historical sites (Sultanahmed area) can be reached by foot (40-50 min. walk) or by taxi... The room was nice, not that big, but enough, many tv channels. And what i should say too, they had really bad pillows, didnt ask for another ones, but the two i found on my bed are really hard ones... Despite of all these negative things, as i said there were many positive things otherwise i wouldnt stay there, i would recommend this hotel and will take into recommendation staying here again.
