Excellent location, excellent restaurant, good value. The hotel still was trying to finish its roof-top restaurant and the facilities, but you would not know there is construction on the top floor (I noticed because the top floor was "inaccessible" on the elevator). Needs to advertise more, especially the restaurant. My wife's "3D" salmon appetizer and my steak with date sauce was excellent. We finished with an excellent green-tea tiramisu and double espresso.

Dear Guest, Salute from Pera Istanbul and thank you for your kind words. Our Executive Chef, Mr. Kartal who has a Master Chef degree, and his passionate team of cooks are very creative and talented team. I am truly glad that you and your wife enjoyed the meals. Well, our roof-top restaurant Hamdi, specialized with Kebabs will be opened by the end of March and will offer traditional Turkish cuisine with a magnificent view to the ancient Golden Horn. I believe that’s another reason for you to come back. Hope we can host you again in future. Best Regards Okan Karadag Hotel Manager

Dear Arzu, Greetings from Pera and thank you very much for taking time to share your experience at Tripadvisor for other travelers. Well, in hotelier business, staff is the most vital factor when serving to our valuable guests. I am very happy and proud that we have such staff members who always serve with care and a big smiling face. Certainly other aspects such as our location, rooms, view, facilities (Spa especially) and easy connectivity to major attractions in the city are why we should be preferred for lodging needs in Istanbul. Thank you for recommending us. We would also love to have you back at your next trip to Istanbul. Kind Regards Okan Karadag Hotel Manager
"Recommend this hotel and Radisson Blu"

I have been staying at Radisson Blu for most of my business trips and I can tell you they are the best I have seen. I recommend Radisson Blu Pera because the have an amazing staff, food is great and they have extra facilities included in the room price. The only advice I can give is to read carefully about the room size, as some are smaller than average and also about the actual room rate, as Turkey applies some 8% charge on top of the advertised rate.

Dear Guest, Salute from Pera Istanbul. Firstly thank you for sparing time to write. We very much appreciate guest feedback. Since our opening almost 7 months ago, our staff has been our jewel, our forefront to carry our flag to the summit. In hospitality business, staff is the most vital aspect which simply money can’t buy. About tax issue, yes our room rates are subject to %8 of VAT as per local tax regulations. This information is reflected to all our sales channels or with our confirmation letters. Mulțumesc & Cu stima Okan Karadag Hotel Manager
