I spent 4 nights in this nice and brand new hotel with my family and some friends for the New Year break and i truly loved it!
People at the reception are very nice , speak a very good English and are always ready to help.
The hotel is very well located in the Pera area, 20 mins walking to Taxim Square, 10 minutes walk to Istiklak Caddesi a very nice area for shopping and a cool area full of bars and restaurants.
I was in a businelss class room (530) and from my bed i could see Bosforo river , some Mosquees and a big part of the city..a really breathless view!! There is a Nespresso machine in the room for a nice coffee whenever you may need and a very nice spa area with a sauna, a jacuzzi,a hammam and swimming pool where to relax after a busy day spent outside to visit the faboulous city.
Breakfast is really good and complete..and the food at the New Year's Eve Dinner was really of high quality.
I would really racommend this hotel and i would def come back in case i will be in town again!
Bravo!!

This hotel is centrally located to a lot of things in Istanbul and very walkable to most neighborhoods. The rooms are somewhat on the small side to US standards (sans NYC) but very comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and speaks English very well (how's your Turkish anyway?) and eager to help with anything.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a major street. Despite the sound proofing try to get a room higher than the first...

We didnt like our stay at all
1. Cards for elevator are not working, every day we had to recharge them at least twice.
2. In the bathroom in front of the toilet there us a huge mirror. U sit on the toilet and watch yourself!!! Deluxe room
3. Mini bar is not replenished
4. After room service we had no glasses for water and vine.
5. My husband was in the room, and i came after shopping without the key (card). I asked on the reception to help me with the elevator, as it works with card. They started asking my name, my surname, calling our room and so on, so it was easier to call my husband by myself and ask him to pick me up from lobby.
6. Good location and breakfast.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Pera Istanbul.

Thank you for taking time to write about your experience with our hotel.
Firstly, please accept my sincere apologies where you thought we missed some service points.
Nevertheless, I would like to say a few words with your feedback.

We kindly ask our guests to keep their room key cards away from magnetic fields, such as mobile phones or magnets in order to protect its magnetic codes; otherwise they would not function.
For our time being, this is the key technology in the hotelier sector.
Since there was a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on your room door for the last 2 days out of 3, we were not able to serve mini bar refreshments or glasses.
Asking guests’ room number and last name for ID clarification is a security measure that all serious international chain hotels take.
This is solely to protect guests’ confidentiality. We would not prefer to give your room key to somebody else without ID confirmation.
About mirror door of bathroom, well it’s an architectural issue which has received positive comments so far. Some may like, some wouldn’t.
We will re-consider your feed back during our first renovation.
Finally, thank you for your compliments with our location and breakfast.

Would you ever travel to Istanbul, I would like to personally meet you and make sure you will fully be satisfied with your stay.

Kind Regards

Very welcoming Reception (staff and décor).
Check In/Out was painless and quick (most essential for a single night's stay!)

The Hotel was very clean and the excellent décor was highlighted by well thought out lighting.

Although it would have been nice to have had a room at the front of the Hotel for the view, the room allocated 523 was more than 'fit for purpose'. The room was well lit, spotless and had all the facilities needed for a longer stay.

The Hotel is about 5 mins walk from the İstiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue) that leads all the way up to Taksim Square.
I did the 'walk' twice: in the evening to find a lovely restaurant called Deep on Kurabiye Sk just off İstiklal Cd (recommended) and then the following morning to take some photos before leaving for the airport.

I wish I'd had the opportunity to stay longer for sure!

Room Tip: I suspect even numbers are at the front of the Hotel and get a much better view.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Pera Istanbul.

Thank you very much for taking time to place such wonderful comments with our breakfast and staff.
We at the Radisson Blu’s believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Therefore we want it to be like a feast to our beloved guests.
This is why we developed a concept called ‘Super Breakfast Buffet’ as a brand concept of Radisson Blu.

We very much look forward to welcoming you again would you ever travel to Istanbul.

Kind Regards

Overall our three night stay was fantastic. As Gold members, we were upgraded to Business Class rooms and given free daily breakfast. The breakfast spread was incredible and all very fresh. They had multiple stations that included fresh cheeses and salads, hot items, pastries, smoothies and cook-to-order waffles and omelets. I really can't say enough good things about the breakfast. Our room was also incredible and had a view looking out to the river, as well as multiple mosques. It was absolutely stunning at night. Highlights of the room included a fabulously comfortable bed, a Nespresso machine, excellent water pressure and a great selection of TV channels. Housekeeping was immaculate.

A few pros:
1) Hotel gym is one of the best I've encountered. It has everything you would ever find in a large gym and has state-of-the-art equipment.
2) The pool is beautiful.
3) Anytime we needed ice or Nespresso pods for the room, they were delivered within 5 minutes.
4) The piano player in the bar/lounge area is a nice touch at Happy Hour.
5) The Business Class room is very well-designed and has a great layout. Lots of attention to detail.

A few minor cons:
1) It's still relatively new and a lot of cab drivers seem to have no idea where it is
2) We had to ask two times for more Nespresso pods since those were not refilled by Housekeeping
3) A couple of the bartenders were borderline rude. One in particular was not patient and was hesitant to give us the Happy Hour price (25% off) even though we were within the Happy Hour limitations.
4) The lobby is a bit small and can quickly get crowded.
5) While the pool is incredible, it is a bit on the smaller side.

Room Tip: An upgrade to a Business Class room may be worth the price, especially if there is a breakfast packa...

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Pera Istanbul.

First of all, thank you for taking time to place your wonderful reviews so that other travelers may have a better idea what to expect. Also such a constructive feed back as yours we can benefit from.
Obviously I am very glad that you enjoyed the amenities and our brand promise Club Carlson Membership benefits are fully honoured and appreciated by our guests.
A confy bed with well-equipped room with view, good housekeeping and breakfast services are basically what makes a hotel remarkable. We will keep the ball high for our guests.

About Nespresso capsules and bartender service, I will make sure that we will improve our service.
Currently, there are 4 Radisson Blu Hotels in Istanbul and 2 more to come in a few months.
As we just opened our hotel 4 months ago, not all of the 18K taxi drivers in the city are yet familiar with our location; hope they will soon.
This is one of the reasons why we attach a hotel’s card with address and a kroki behind for our guests to use.

All in all, I trust that you would recommend and stay with us again would you ever travel to Istanbul.

Kind Regards
