We were in Istanbul with our 2 kids for a week. The Marmara Pera was one of the few hotels I found that was well located, allowed a "family suite" (connected double rooms), and had an outside pool. This suited our needs perfectly. The hotel is perfectly located for excursions into the old city while being well located for seeing other parts of the city as well. It is at the heart of shopping, restaurants, bars, etc. We were able to sight-see by day and then enjoy the amazing roof-top pool in the afternoons. While it is small, the pool and roof deck has amazing views over the city and the bosphorous and was a wonderful place to unwind in the late afternoon or to have a drink while watching the sunset. Then we were off to explore some great dining options within walking distance in the evening. While the staff was generally pleasant, the front-desk was usually too swamped with check-in and check-out to give advice. And when they did, they would often point one to pricey options and tours rather than the obvious local approach. The hotel would benefit from having a dedicated concierge. All in all, though, the Marmara Pera is a very good hotel in an excellent location -- and with an amazing roof-top deck.
