I stayed at Pera Palace for several days before and after the Orthodox Easter (April 15 this year), got a room on the top floor, which from otside looks like a mansard, though it does not actually feel like one when inside and even has a balcony. The room was clean and cosy, but probably would be a bit too small for 2 persons, especially the bathroom, which from the standpoint of ergonomics was rather uncomfortably designed. Another grouse is a fairly limited selection of English-language TV channels, not even the CNN.
Otherwise, the hotel is quite good and very conveniently located in the heart Pera -- if one is in town to enjoy the night life, or to visit some consulates on nearby Istiklal street, the cab station is right round the corner too. If one seeks a quite locale -- then this is definitely not the first port of call.
