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.

Thanks to great views from its high-rise tower over the Bosphorus and one of the best restaurants in the city, The Marmara Pera is a destination in its own right.

The 4-star hotel is a stone’s throw from Istiklal 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 Hagia Sophia (a former Greek Orthodox church and now a museum), the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace.

Inside, the 18-storey hotel's contemporary interior begins with marble floors and white leather sofas in the lobby. Rooms were renovated in 2011 and have a retro 1970s vibe. Free Wi-Fi is available in all rooms; other amenities include iPod docks & tea- and coffee-making facilities. Suites have private Jacuzzis. Those on or above the 10th floor have spectacular 180-degree views of the minaret-rich city and the sea. 

No matter what floor your room is on, you can still enjoy the view from the rooftop bar 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 cafe serves simpler Turkish and international dishes, and there is also a fitness centre on this level.

With this offer, you can choose to enjoy a buffet breakfast downstairs from 7-10am or in your room at any time of the day.
