Location excellent if you want to stay close to shopping street, bars and cosy restos. We liked the interior design and the price was very good. It was clean and we had no comments on the room itself, it was quiet and the room had good ac.
The breakfast was very simple, sometimes they didn't fill the plates fast enough. The coffee was terrible. The staff was not more than ok. The bed was a little bit too hard for our backs.
Small size room Staff was indifferent.
The bathrooms were by far the best feature of the hotel; clean spacious with excellent wet room shower. Room a little small but I did request a quiet room at the hotels rear and indeed it was just that. Staff helpful and friendly, good buffet style breakfast.Good value for money excellent location.I Will hopefully stay again in the future
Rooms are bigger than same-price-level hotel rooms.
The staff is not professional as much as in a five star hotel, but according to what you pay the service you get is regular.
Location is great for a visit on the Pera side. Excellent bathroom & bed.
Superior room a bit too tight even for solo traveller. Internet - wifi not up to standard. Air con not always working despite being mid summer
The hotel was ideally located next to Istiklal street, 1 block from the metro station (Sishane stop) and 2 blocks from the underground tram to Kadikoy (Tunel). The deluxe rooms were spacious and well designed.
The breakfast buffet was very poor, the staff weren't very fluent with English and the cleaning crew did not provide enough soap, shampoo etc. We were there for 4 nights and they only provided one small bar of soap, even though we have requested more from the reception desk.
The location was fantastic and relative to other hotels in Istanbul, it appeared to be a good value for the price.
Beyond the hotel's control, but the noise from outside was quite loud on 4 of our 6 nights. Earplugs definitely help.
The staff was excellent. Our room had a slight problem and they upgraded us to a deluxe room. The location is also phenomenal.
The hotel staff were very helpful and made great efforts to speak with us in English. BedRoom was chic and spacious but the bathroom door didn't close (style rather than substance)! Breakfast was fine but very basic. Location was great for nightlife and shopping.
The rooms are big and spacious, as is the bathroom. It's clean and the staff is really kind. Location is nice it's on the Asian side, near to the famous pera palace hotel, and every taxi driver knows where is that. Even though it's on the Asian side it"s not that far from Sultanahmet which is where the Blue mosque, Hagia Sofia and Grand Bazar are located. Also near is the Taksim Square which is central square on the Asian side. So you get to see both sides. :) Breakfast was ok, everything was tasty but there wasn't very big choice.
the only thing i didn't like is that the staff couldn't really recommend me some good restaurants in the city, they didn't know which one to recommend me. and this is important because the best restaurants aren't in the center they are usually in some small streets and you can't really see them when you walk by.
Very good location, close area to Taksim restaurants and bars. Clean, modern design, silent in the room (!), free Wi-Fi, lot of TV international channels. Kind attitude on reception. Recommended.
Good location in the Taxim area.
The surrounding area is very croudy and noisy in the night hours during Friday and Saturday. You may need ear plugs to sleep.
I liked specially the big size of the room and bathroon.
The hotel is clean and our room was calm, especially taking into account that it was turned towards the street. The location is superb.
Breakfast was extremely poor.
The hotel was very nice, room was spacious and quite lovely. Breakfast was good, pretty standard for a Turkish hotel breakfast, not lavish but more than adequate. Most of the staff was pleasant and tried to be helpful, but not a 3 star hotel staff, they were more like a staff of a friendly cafe, happy to help but not going to go much out of their way to do so. However, there was one front desk guy, who was there most of the time during the day who was deeply unpleasant. If it weren't for him this hotel would be great. That said, all of the night staff was super great and friendly and helpful.
The one reception guy who was there during the day. Arrogant, unpleasant, eager to reprimand you for asking simple questions. And he had the presence of someone who worked in a funeral parlor in a movie. He was just unpleasant and if it weren't for him our stay at the Au Pera would have been perfect. He might be a perfectly nice guy, in his own personal life but he has about zero patience for tourist, doesn't speak English very well, which is fine but he is convinced that his English is perfect and is apparently very sensitive about it. So if he says something that makes no sense and you dare to question it he gets huffy and fussy and pushy and mean, but you have no idea why because he isn't expressing anything coherent. Also, the hot water was sort of in and out, but this is apparently an issue in even the most fancy of fancy hotels in Istanbul. Also there are cheaper places on the same block that might not be as fancy looking but have the same amenities, and there are place that are just 10 euros more a night that are far better, in a completely different league. This place tries to sell itself as a hip boutique hotel, catering to a younger crowd, and it almost is, but the staff needs to be a little more professional.
