As a leisure traveller , I was looking for a hotel which has the potential to satisfy my needs , this includes among other things : good location, modern facilities, clean rooms and bathrooms,good food and friendly staff .To my full satisfaction I was not disappointed with my experience in Istanbul Intercontinental Hotel.
Well, there isn't much to say other than this hotel was perfect in every way. We stayed for 8 nights in October 2014 and this hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. Not only was it located in a great place near Istiklal Street for shopping & dining, but it is in close proximity to old Istanbul where the majority of the sights are. The hotel was pushed over the top by it's recent renovation and extremely friendly/knowledgeable staff. All in all, the Pera Palace was a perfect place to call "home" at the end of long day or touring around Istanbul.

Great location overlooking Taksim square, with view of the Bosphorus from some rooms. Close to many restaurants and shops and an easy walk to major Congress Centres. A longer walk or easy public transport to major tourist attractions in the old area. Buffet breakfast was excellent. My room was very comfortable, but a little dark.
We only stayed 1 night before the cruise but they gave us a big and luxurious room with all
top quality amenities. We went down to their restaurant for dinner and the dinner was
delicious with reasonable prices. The staff was polite and helpful. Both check-in and check-out
were done quickly without any problems or delays. All staff and restaurant staff spoke good
Simply amazing. Everything perfect from the minute we step in. From a very warm Welcome Back till being asked the last day if we need transportation. Staff, food, amenities, cleaninles... Are were amazing!
