A beautifully refurbished hotel in the heart of Pera. Excellent location, within easy 2 minute walk to the shops and restaurants around Istiklal Caddesi.
I was fortunate enough to have been upgraded to a corner suite on the fourth floor and it was enormous. The one adjective to describe furnishings and comfort: sumptious.
Yes, some of the floor boards were loose, but this is minor when compared to the overall character and design of the classic room.
There is a bar on the ground level and breakfast and dinner on the 7th floor. But this is where is all goes horribly wrong. The restaurant may have a great outlook over Istanbul, but it was designed like an office canteen. I did not have dinner, but breakfast. It was average at best, and avoid their menemem. It was such a disappointment given the overall feel of the hotel.
But the staff were all helpful and you can always eat at the many restaurants in the immediate vicinity.
This hotel offers very good value and offers a very good experience. I will return, but will eat outside!More
