Hotel is one of the best I've been to throughout the world! They kept historic appearance for both outside and inside, all decorated with ancient accessories. While welcoming the guests to the room after check-in they take you upstairs in the elevator that still works since end of 19th century and was never replaced - that's a great experience.
Rooms are great, in addition to minibar, bathrobes, slippers etc - there are free man socks, women stockings and some other accessories that may be useful. Staff is amazing, no negative points at all.
We ordered dinner in the room and it was totally worth it! Perfectly served and kept warm inside of the special heating cupboard under the table. No need to say that it was tasty!
Location is not so close to the historic center, not in a walking distance reach, but since Istanbul is a big city full of taxis it's not a problem to get wherever you want.
Overall, hotel is amazing, ambiance is great, it was romantic and superb, if coming to Istanbul again - Pera Palace is my only choice.
