Servicen var på det højeste niveau, personalet er veluddanede dygtige folk, maden er delicat og udsigten ubeskrivelig.. Det er absolut et hotel jeg gerne bruger igen. Til forbedringer kan jeg kun foreslå en udvidet markedsføring, så flere kan "opdage" det ultimative hotel.
Bedste placering i Istanbul. Lækkert hotel, centralt placeret med direkte adgang til "gågaden". Minder meget om Dángletere placering i KBH.
Great view! Exelent location with amazing rooftop and coctails , central ... great choice best view than the galata tower Gym too small
well english speaking staff towel were old, extremely noisy at night time. and also bed's sheet were a bit smelly. in general we spend our worth night in this hotel, because we couldn't sleep up to 2;30 at night.
Pool on the roof.
rooms are small and not really comfortable do not value for 150 euro small size beds.
The location for shopping cannot be better few meters from Istiklal Str. and 5min to Taqsem Square. Only the cleanness of the room was not up to that level.
nice hotel we feel comfort, near to one of the famous shopping street, nice view,and it is easy to go to every where in Istanbul nothing at all
Great view and great staff. Overall I loved it.
good hotel staff, professional no
5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago Our trip in Istanbul was for 6 days, and the idea was to find a hotel with an outdoor pool, to be able to get away from the hustle & bustle and chill out every once in a while. I’ve found that most hotels with pool have indoor pools and Hamam's....which is nice… of course... but in the summer heat, an outdoor pool is more what we need... Some of the high end expensive Hotels seem to have it but we didn't want to spend hundreds of $$$ per night... Anyway, I’ve found and booked the Marmara Pera and wasn't totally sure what to expect. Here our impressions: Perfect location in an upscale neighborhood, 1 minute from the famous walking street Istiklal, between Taksim square and Galata Tower. The building is the tallest on that hill and it gets you the most stunning views without any obstructions whatsoever. We stayed in room 901 and had a fantastic view over the city and river. Best of all was the sunset because the sun would go down right in the center of the window...absolutely beautfiful. The pool on the roof is not big but it doesn't matter because you are overlooking Bosporus river, the old town, the blue mosque, the whole shebang. You can overlook all directions from the Rooftop and again, you are on the tallest building around, so no obstructions. Very friendly & English speaking staff, easy check in Nice Amenities in the room Power outlets that keep charging your devices even when not in the room and key card removed from the main power switch. Our local friend mentioned that the restaurant on the Rooftop is excellent but we never actually ate there. Not sure if the hotel prices were lowered because it happened to be Ramadan or maybe because tourists bought into the terror scare that is rampant ever since 9/11 and stayed away... but we've only paid $80 per night for that room with the sunset view. Btw, there is a metal detector and 24h security at the entrance. I've visited Istanbul before and I think having a view and a central location is really making all the difference. I will come back here and stay in this very hotel. One last thing: download the App called BiTaksi and link it with your credit card. It's like UBER but it's what the locals use over here. I started already at the airport and never waited more than 4 minutes for a Taxi. This way, we’ve never had to hackle for price, got rejected because of the destination, or worse...got scammed when paying in cash... and believe me.... Taxi stories were my worst experience on my previous trips to Istanbul. Love Istanbul, don't get discouraged, help yourself, use technology and Apps to make the most of your trip. Stay open minded, be friendly, stay cool and you will get great things in return. Nothing at all!
I like the location. The hotel is in the city center. Room has a nice view. The most importantly, I like the people who works at the hotel. People are so kind and friendly. I recommend that you listen their advices about where to go to eat and go out. They know the best restaurants and the places..
the Location in Taksim area evry thing is fine
Fantastic Location and not so busy!
Hotellet er rimelig nyt og moderne og der er renligt, samtdig med en god beliggenhed. Da jeg skulle tjekke ud,blev jeg spurgt om de skulle bestille en taxa til mig, og jeg svarede desværre ja. Skulle faktisk kun 3 km væk og chaufføren havde ville have 20 liras selvom det normalt ville koste mig ca 5-7 liras.Hvis der så havde været et taxameter der var tændt.. Dette må man gerne
fantastisk belligenhed og meget renlig!!!! Personalet ;(
One of the best None
The room had a lovely view. The person on the enquiries desk was extremely helpful in assisting us in finding a restaurant and booking it for us. I thought the room was a bit small for a deluxe room. I also did not like the fact that they did not have slippers in the room.
It's Location. Air Conditions.
The Spa with Haman was fantastic. The staff was very professional. The restaurant recomendation from the Concierge to a restaurant also on the hotels website. It was very touristy and not level expected. Would have preferred that the hotel had a buffet at dinner.
our room view
Everything was great.Rooms spacious and always clean .The service for the rooms was 3 or 4 times a day and continuous supply of water(free). Reception staff friendly and helpful.An excellent choice for our 5day trip to Istanbul.The shopping center only a few minutes walking away. Although they had been notified for our late afternoon arrival one of the two rooms took one hour to get ready.
The view is great, specially on the high floors. Valet parking is convinient. Location is great for those who like busy life day and night that area does not sleep The club intercontinental does not offer much, there is no all day refreshments like other executive floors in other hotels.
Location is excellent, staff are friendly and helpful, rooms of good size, all amenties are available, resteaurants and food is good. Price is a bit in the high side.
Well located and spacious. It is definitively an aging hotel. Was on the 1st floor and the hallway and rooms smelled like smoke even if it was non-smoking.
hotel has good location , staff very polite and helpful , speaking perfect english we didnt like the hotel room , it needs renovation , really very old , stains everywhere at bathroom ,we stayed only first night out of 3 .
It might not be brand new but with an unbeatable location next to Taksim square and splendid views of the Bosphorus from almost every room as I found out, this is the best value for a luxury stay in Istanbul. The breakfast is vast, the staff incredibly attentive and courteus and it has one of the best gyms I'vê ever seen at hotels around the world. Highly recommend it Maybe the room furniture is a bit old world style but of good quality
Very nice hotel It was away from tourist area of old town. But that was not nessessary a bad thing
Staff were courteous, decor was great, hotel has a warm cosy feel to it Breakfast room - bit lacking in atmosphere.
It was very close to Taksim. Perfect location I guess they cannot improve that but the rooms are small and overloaded. Maybe some redecoration would make the rooms look bigger and more spacy
I Like the style of room in Germir Palas and breakfast. the food for brakfast are very fresh. Also tea is great. There was no problem during my staying.
The hotel in general is good...location, cleanness, staff,,, nothing really is over expectations I would say is a good hotel only nothing in partecular
This is the ideal hotel if you are transferring between Istanbul and either of its airports, as the Havas airport transfer bus drops off/picks up on the opposite side of the street. It is comfortable and clean and has a nice rooftop terrace. The breakfast was pleasant and varied (although served in a windowless basement room).
The location was great. It was accessible to shopping and eating. Some of the people at the front desk we working with the cab drivers to get a cut on the fares when they called the cabs. Try to get your own cab.
The staff was friendly, the room not very spacious, but spacious enough and very clean. The hotel is located at Taksim Square; public transport is within a few minutes' walk. We could choose between a quiet room at the backside of the hotel and a less quiet room at the front side. We chose the backside which indeed appeared to be quiet. Breakfast was served on a great roof terrace with a view on the Bosporus.
It's very well-located, if you have to be near Taksim this is the best place. It's close enough to the meydan and to the Metro and buses, but not so close to Istiklal where all of the noise and crowds are. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The Wifi was very slow and kept going in and out, if you're paying $140 for a room you shouldn't have to deal with something even $28/night hotels in Istanbul get right.
-Location -Hotel amenities -Staff friendliness My wife and my passports were stolen from me. The hotel was more than accommodating to our needs. They even gave us a discount when we extended our stay.
We enjoyed the hospitality, the comfort, breakfast was great, we felt safe with great security in and around the hotel, On Iron, no hairdryer in our room, we are also a custom to having a microwave in hotel rooms in America. I didn't see any of that.
Fabulous spa, gym, and pool. Breakfast delivered to my room was amazing and only cost around $20. The service was excellent. I was shocked that the internet and local calls cost extra money. I had to change a booking at a hamam and the concierge changed the hamam time but never re-booked my massage, which I was unable to get as they were fully booked.
I like the stuff
The rooms were very nice and clean The breakfast was not very good
Dejlig beliggenhed, ingen støj og sød betjening. Ærgeligt at man ikke kunne bruge faciliteterne da hotellet var under ombygning, hvilket nok skulle nævnes senest ved bookingen :-(
This hotel was the perfect choice. Great location, very friendly and helpful staff, good price for value!!!! It was just perfect!
Hotellets beliggenhed er perfekt. Tæt til meget og tæt på transport muligheder. Spa'en var skøn og personalet var søde. Måske en lidt mere spændende morgenmads buffet...
Det er et flot hotel med en god beliggenhed. Personalet er sød, men virker ikke særlig rutineret i omgang med deres opgaver. Jeg undrede mig over hotellets værelse kategorier. Vi bestilte en superior værelse, men værelset virkede som et standard. Værelset var pænt og rent, men meget lille, med håndvasken lige i indgangspartien, og ud mod en gård med bar. Morgenmadsbuffet var pænt og med et stort udvalg af lækker mad. Restauranten er ikke stor nok, til alle gæster. Folk var nødt til at vente længe.
Hotellet var en fin standard. Designet og interiør var enkel og stilren. Beliggenheden var perfekt, lige midt I det aller hyggeligste område af Istanbul. Absolut anbefalelses værdigt Der var en del støj ved åbne vindue. Varm på værelse og summen fra strømanlæget, men det fjernede vi let ved at tage nøglen ud af holderen om natten.
it was really clean Check-out at 12:00. Should be 2:00 pm
staff,cleanliness ,late check out.breakfast free on early arrival 1-noisy road side ,u cannot sleep bcz a/c is central u cannot control it ,so u have to open window bcz of hot central2-breakfast very poor ,u have to pay for omlet or fresh juice??????????
location no a/c, no iron, electric cable hanging in the shower, very dim room
the location of the hotel is great as it 2 minute from ESTICKLAL sounds of the cars as its so close to the taksim square
For me I like the central location of the hotel, it's near by Istiklal street and the area is filled of shops and restaurants. Also rooms were clean and neat. I got a nice room facing Bosphorus. The only thing that I don't like : some of the hotel staff were Unfriendly and Unsocial, but on the other side there were a very helpful and nice people to the guests.
The location was excellent near by the most important area ( Taksim) with reasonable price and warm hospitality Poor of food staff and experience on service as it is new hotel
The location and the fast service The confusion regarding my payment procedures
The view from my window. Some of the staff did not have a good attitude. For example: The night before I asked that my room ticket be printed, the mini bar checked, a wake up call arranged and taxi service to the airport arranged. When I called the reception at 0630 that morning for help with my luggage, I was told it was early and they would send someone up in 15 minutes. There was fog out my window and I thought I should leave earlier. When I arrived at the lobby, my bill was not prepared, the receptionist said I drank one bottle of water from the mini bar and had me sign a form when I said I did not; wanted to charge me the conversion rate from US$ to TL and I was not told this when I checked in and gave a $1000 USD deposit on the room and additional charge
The hotel staff were very helpful with directions and figuring out the metro and ferry times/locations to get us to our destinations.
The staff is very friendly , the location is excellent .
the staff were helpfull and polit ,good location ,clean, breakfast was good. the spa was not ready to be in service and the roof restaurant too
hlepful staff, value of money and the location a bit noisy
Clean, very helpful staff and very good reliable internet connection ! No English news channels on TV !
Great location …
staff is very polite and the hotel resides in a convenient place. traffic noise + the fact that every morning the staff calls at 7 to wake up you for breakfast
Helpful front desk. Not much interaction with staff at breakfast, but this might be a language problem.
the hotel in general is good with nice clean comfortable rooms. the staff in general were helpful though some were not speaking english. some staff does not speak english
The location of the hotel is excellent it is at the heart of Istanbul, taksim the wifi is available at the rooms and free,the breakfast is good The rooms is too small,the Majority of the staff can't speak english
Location near Taksim was by far the best feature of the hotel. The hotel was clean and safe. The complimentary breakfast was tasty, although you should expect to see the same dishes every day. Our room had water coming through the ceiling, dripping/pouring loudly for the first 3 days of our 4 day stay. We had to make many, many calls to get this fixed, and no comparable room was offered to us. There was no A/C for 1.5 days of our stay.
Location & morning shift staff are very helpful & kind people unlike evening shift. Room has not enough space & there is no nice view.
Var opgraderet til et rigtig godt sstort værelse.på 8. sal med udsigt til broen over Bosperus og til Bosperus. Andre standardværelser som jeg så var ikke særligt charmerende uden udsigt, men absolut OK uden at være prangende.Fin gratis internetadgang. Flot badeværelse. Bestemt ingen mulighed for hyggebelysning i værelset og også dårlige lænestole.
Bra hotell beliggende meget centralt i IST
The view from the restaurant is spectaculair! For tourists the location is suberb. The hotel is situated directly at the Taxim square which, obvioulsy, gives some rumour of the traffic in front..
staff was very good as usual unfortunately they were going to reform in few days the building so some service was not available
We close to the main street, you can find easily a Taxi. The air condition was not working well, If you are opening the balcony its getiing a bit noisy.
Location, nice views Poor air conditioning, noisy duct just outside window.
Didnt have blankets in the room, the room service took forever until they bring one, still it was thin.
Price for the Location. Air-conditioning was not working in the whole of hotel and it was the same in 2 rooms I stayed in on different dates and the staff was not willing to accept that the air-conditioning is not working. If one is not able to sleep due to the room being warm and noisy then what is the use of any thing else.
i don't like the hotel , they give room without Air conditioner and leaking water not good service , not clean room , they can not speak English very will
The room was large, clean and very comfortable, the staff were very kind and helpful. The location of the hotel is in a central place, on a very lively square. Unfortunately, the square is very noisy. A better acoustic isolation of the room from outside noise should be warranted.
hi the location is very nice at the cener of taksim sequare avry thing is available like metro , tamway and bus it is not suitable for family because the bed is saperat
The suicide bomb that went off outside on 31st October. Also rooms very hot according to my daughter
Perfect location. Do not go to Junction! (Expensive food of average quality.)
there was so nice staff. we had room at 8th floor but elevator work to 7 only. thats why i wanted to change room and they gave us very good room next day. yes. floor 8.
Great ubication, new and very nice and confortable rooms. We forgot a pair of sunglasses and when we called to ask if it was there they told us we forgot there and saved them until we went to pick them up. We did the reservation with time and told we were travelling with an 11 year old girl. We arrived almost at 2 in the morning and we found our room was very small and there was not space for her. The next day we were changed to a very confortable and big room as there was not space that night.
very central no non-smoking rooms; my room smelt badly of cigarettes.
Good location, good services and very nice people. the front desk should be better trained .
very nice location - very clean and nice rooms (we were in the renovated ones) - very nice restaurant
the spot of the hotel is perfect. they offered two single beds although they knew it was a cou[ple that is staying . of course they changed the next day that we complain
Very good service. Very helpful with the car parking. All staff spoke good English.
Stayed in renovated room which is really extremly modern and comfortable as much as 5* hotel. Staff is quite inadequate and not trained in helping customers efficiently; AmEx credit card can not be used for payment although mentioned at hotel profile and confirmed during check in, it took more then 1 hour to check out (if I would have to fly this would be crutial), hotel manager not able to handle situation and finally rediculoulsly they requested me to get cash from atm and pay in cash.
Staff were very helpful, excellent ebusiness relation Manager, +AAA Location. Very hard to communicate in in English, but then again it is a general notice in Turkey.
The friendliness and politeness of staff, the size of the room and bathroom, the location of the hotel, the very rich breakfast Thew poor sound insulation in the room. Could hear the conversation from neighboring and room above.
Very nice decorated rooms with all the necessary facilities. The hotel is well located in the city centre.
Nice hotel building, helpful staff, wide variety in breakfast A bit far from main shopping.
Very nice hotel. None. All was as expected.
i stayed at the hotel twice ,once booked through booking.com and first time through my friend in turkey....hotel is perfect but staff very snob ! at time of check in this time ,they were really quick and helpful ( through booking.com) and even gave us a great room,much bigger than our first time.... but after that all back to normal , they don't greet or ever smile when u ask for anything....so in general hotel is very good ,but staff not that great or friendly! unfriendly staff
The hotel of pleasant surprises with really helpful staff.
The hotel was very accomodating. We arrived at 7 in the morning and were allowed to check in. We also had a late check out at 3pm at no charge! The hotel is in a good area, near Taxim's main drag and the hotel staff were good. This is not the cheapest hotel but still represented good value for money.
The good service, nice hotel, situation of the hotel. Really value for money.
Good location and excellant facilities None
Easily accessible to Any mode of transport.havatas bus going to airport stops very close to this hotel Swimming pool water cold,not heated
