Staying at the Pera Palace is like a step back in time. It is one of Europes great old historic hotels. The rooms have been updated. Great service and location. Highly recommend. A hotel of this quality would be $4-500 per night in Paris or NYC, but only $170 here.

I first stayed here in the early 2000s--my parents have stayed here since the 1970s. My husband and I stayed here in October 2015. The property was bought by Jumeirah around 2005 and gave it a much need face lift. However, in the renovations I think some of the charm was lost. The Midnight Express Bar where Hemingway sat doesn't...

Enjoy the nearby shopping district when you stay at this historic hotel. This historic hotel has been restored with great detail and offers very comfortable beds and rooms. The outdoor restaurant/bar offers a great way to relax before going about town. While the historic areas of town are walkable, you likely will want to take transportation if you are going...

Pera Palace has a rich history, and with its Belle Epoque decor and display of authentic treasures from its past, staying here almost feels like being part of a living museum. The hotel first opened in 1895 to house the European guests coming to Istanbul on the famed Orient Express, and more than a few famous names have passed through,...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
