“Good base for seeing Istanbul”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

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.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write down your ideas.
We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and particularly enjoyed our view.

In The Marmara Pera, the rooms are designed to meet our guests' needs and the staff are trained to deliver an excellent service. The biggest pleasure for all of us is to hear our beloved guests' pleasant experiences.

If we are to talk about where to stay in İstanbul, yes, Beyoğlu area and specifically The Marmara Pera is the answer. Old City area is still in a walking distance of 25 minutes and there are plenty of attractions in Beyoğlu area, as well.

You are always more than welcome in our property once again...

The hotel staff are friendly and hospitable. The rooms are nice and clean. The only downside are the bed's mattress, are too soft.
Other than that the hotel has excellent facilities, pool, business center and Gym.
It is a very good hotel to stay in.

Visited Istanbul over a weekend, and we stayed and the Marmara Pera. I have to say that we found it to be excellent. The view from our room was breathtaking, looking over Istanbul and its magestic mosques. The Room itself was quite clean and convenient, the space was of good size and the beds were comfortable.

The Lobby was also cozy and smelled brilliant (is it weird that I care about how the Lobby smells?). All that aside, this hotel is situated a minute-walking distance from the Time-Square-esque Istiklal street, which makes for a perfect location. It's also surrounded by really cool streets and alleyways worth discovering. Istanbul is a huge city, so its always good to have a great area to get back at to at the end of the day!

Location is great. A minute walk to the bustling Istiklal street and taxi gathering point right outside the hotel makes going somewhere very easy. Whether the city view or the Bosphorus view, both are fabulous from the comfortable room with a minibars filled with diverse snacks and drinks. Room service is quick and efficient. Housekeeping is flawless, returning the room to spotless condition. Wifi is easy to connect to and pretty fast.

Bathrooms are a bit on the small side. Fitness room is small and barely average in diversity and unfortunately had items that were being repaired (the only bench in the fitness room).

Room Tip: If you mind the lounge music till around 2am, don't choose the top floor rooms (17th). Windows s...
