The Marmara Pera

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff were helpful and the rooms were nice. However, I would not recommend staying here over a weekend or holiday as the music from another building will keep you awake until 12 or even 4 am (one night)

Good hotel, staff was help full when asking about attractions. Cab stand right in front of hotel. Istikal street just a block away. Numerous convienience stores steps away. Be sure to try the cafe real turkish cafe around the back of the hotel towards Istikal

Nice enough hotel in great tourist location, with good amenities, but rooms could be much fresher.

Great location, just meters from the busiest nightlife streets and the metro station. Very very nice view at the roof, with a heated pool. I just wished the shower had a better water screen to keep the water inside, and not spill outside into the bathroom floor.

Close to shopping and nightlife no indoors pool if you are travelling in fall or winter friendly and helpful staff very accessible (and free to use) business center.

Great location. The hotel is located in the heart of Istanbul with spectacular views of the old city. The rooms are clean but a bit small .

This hotel is in the middle of lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. Steps away from Galata tower and Taksim square. Rooms are not too small, clean and with nice views. Overall a great stay

no cleaning rooms no clean towells all dates so expensive for service

Hotel is fantastic. Great views of the city. One block from Istaklal. Staff was so helpful. Room was very good also. I would stay there anytime.

This Hotel is in a great location and staff is very friendly. Great price compared to others in Istanbul, however room cleanliness could be improved.

Great location, amazing rooftop lounge and pool. Amazing price. Room and bathroom small.

- Close to ISTEKLAL Street, the most faous street for brand shopping, July is reduction of 50%. - The end of ISTEKLAL Street is TAKSIM Place where you can take Bus, Taxi, Metro and also the Touristic Tour Bus. - The breakfast cost 15 Euro open bufet, take coupon from reception to get reduction to 12 Euro. - The top roof restaurant Bar is nice too. - The swimming pool is small but quite, nice to get sun bath.

Hotel is well-situated within walking distance of the main street in a popular neighborhood. Roof-top lounge is fabulous, though didn't get to try the restaurant which is supposed to be wonderful. Nice clean room, good buffet breakfast.

The Marmara Pera is a solid high rise hotel in a great location right of the main drag of Istiklal. The rooms are clean and relatively modern, though very small in a European sort of way. The service was kind and accommodating. Avoid lower floors so you are not bothered by the street noise and you get a good view of the city or the Bosphorous. Make sure you grab a drink at their stunning rooftop bar.

This hotel is one block from the Istiklal Street, where all the shops and cafes and clubs are. The location is great, the staff members are very helpful and polite, my room is on the 6th floor and it has a wonderful view of the city and the golden horn, I imagine the higher floor would have even better views. You can walk to Galata Tower and Taksim square.

Great location for any traveler. Walking distance to lots of restaurants, shops, and night life. The hotel is in the new part of town. To visit the old part of Istanbul(Blue Mosque, Haghia Sofya, and Grand Bazaar) a tram ride is needed.

this hotel was just ok. reasonably clean, excellent location. the taxi drivers all know where it is-may sound like a small deal, but when we stayed at the "w istanbul", nobody had any idea where it was. the hotel overall seems outdated, rooms somewhat small, but our stay was fine.

Really friendly and helpful staff. Hotel is absolutely perfect location for young couples. Everything we had planned or were recommended to do was right on our doorstep. Could not get any better location. Rooms were modern and clean - with jaw dropping views of Istanbul. Beautiful.

the front staff was accomodating and even though i ended up with a smoking room, it didn't smell and you could open the windows. the location was great and the restaurant/bar at the top of the hotel is very sleek and with unbelievable views. the bathrooms are ridiculously small but the rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. i would stay there again.
