Map & Directions

If travelling by taxi to the hotel from Istanbul Ataturk Airport (a 30-minute drive), it’s advisable to negotiate a fee with the driver before departing. The airport also has bus and metro services to central Istanbul; get off at Şişhane station, which is a 10-minute walk.

Great views from its high-rise tower over The Bosphorus and one of the best restaurants in the city contribute to the success of this consistently popular Istanbul hotel.

The 4-star Marmara Pera is also in an ideal location, just a stone’s throw from İstiklal Avenue, which is known for its bars, nightclubs and some of the city’s best fish restaurants. The tram running along the avenue reaches Istanbul’s Old City, Sultanahmet, with unmissable sights such as the Haiga Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace.

Inside, the 18-story hotel is a pleasant contemporary interior that begins with the marble floors and white leather sofas of the lobby. Rooms were renovated in 2011 and have a retro 1970s vibe. Those on or above the 10th floor have spectacular views  of the minaret-rich city and the sea. Wi-Fi is free in all rooms, as well as iPod docks, tea- and coffee-making facilities and complimentary water. Upgrade to a suite for your own Jacuzzi.

If your room is lower down, you can still enjoy the view from the rooftop bar, pool, or Mikla restaurant. This well regarded eatery (Travel + Leisure calls it “one of Istanbul’s chicest”) is set over the top two floors and serves food reflecting the Turkish-Scandinavian background of the owner/chef. Dishes might include lamb shoulder with pomegranate molasses or smoked mackerel with aged Turkish cheese. A ground floor café serves simpler Turkish and international dishes, and there is also a fitness center on this level.
