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
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.
One of the best None
Very nice hotel It was away from tourist area of old town. But that was not nessessary a bad thing
It's Location. Air Conditions.
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 .
our room view
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Bedste placering i Istanbul. Lækkert hotel, centralt placeret med direkte adgang til "gågaden". Minder meget om Dángletere placering i KBH.
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.
I like the stuff
Fabulous spa, gym, and pool. Breakfast delivered to my room was amazing and only cost around $20. The service was excellent. I was shocked that the internet and local calls cost extra money. I had to change a booking at a hamam and the concierge changed the hamam time but never re-booked my massage, which I was unable to get as they were fully booked.
We enjoyed the hospitality, the comfort, breakfast was great, we felt safe with great security in and around the hotel, On Iron, no hairdryer in our room, we are also a custom to having a microwave in hotel rooms in America. I didn't see any of that.
The location was excellent near by the most important area ( Taksim) with reasonable price and warm hospitality Poor of food staff and experience on service as it is new hotel
The staff is very friendly , the location is excellent .
The location and the fast service The confusion regarding my payment procedures
the staff were helpfull and polit ,good location ,clean, breakfast was good. the spa was not ready to be in service and the roof restaurant too
The view from my window. Some of the staff did not have a good attitude. For example: The night before I asked that my room ticket be printed, the mini bar checked, a wake up call arranged and taxi service to the airport arranged. When I called the reception at 0630 that morning for help with my luggage, I was told it was early and they would send someone up in 15 minutes. There was fog out my window and I thought I should leave earlier. When I arrived at the lobby, my bill was not prepared, the receptionist said I drank one bottle of water from the mini bar and had me sign a form when I said I did not; wanted to charge me the conversion rate from US$ 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.
Location is 10 minutes walk from downtown. Clean and Okay view. I did not like the fact that I got stolen (Laptop value over $700)! But I was shocked from the response of the management team in the hotel! I was treated with cold faces and they questioned my own integrity. I ended up trying to defend myself for some reason!! They did not offer any help, I was put on the side and was given least priority. They did not seem even surprised. I think it is not the first time there. Unfortunately I could not call the police because it was my last night. My advice if you go there .... do not leave anything valuable.
fantastisk belligenhed og meget renlig!!!! Personalet ;(
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
This is an excellent hotel.
Everything from the bellboy to the cleaning staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and of highest quality and location was great, a lot of things to do if you don't mind walking. Historical sites are not close need to take a cab but not very far normally costing about 20-25TL.
We were welcomed with a bottle of wine in our room for our wedding anniversary which was a lovely thought and only wished we had longer to enjoy all the sevices the hotel had to offer.Truely memorable and we hope to return soon.
The hotel is new, clean, well-managed, and in a great location. Also, the rooftop restaurant, which is where the complimentary breakfast is, is amazing. We ate dinner at Le Fumoir one night and it was our favorite meal in all of Turkey. My room was a bit dark because it was on the 2nd floor and faced the street and another building. However, this is nothing management can change. I do think the air conditioning could be stronger. It takes a while to cool the room.
It was very personal, well designed and clean. The hallway was a bit dark
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!
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.
Great view and great staff. Overall I loved it.
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.
Pool on the roof.
Fantastic Location and not so busy!
Great view! Exelent location with amazing rooftop and coctails , central ... great choice best view than the galata tower Gym too small
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
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
good hotel staff, professional no
