Villa Pera is a great little hotel in the heart of the Taksim/Beyoglu area. 2 minutes walk from Taksim Square and the main Istiklal street, it's the perfect spot to explore the area.
We stayed in a deluxe suite. It was clean, spacious and quiet. Great bathroom and shower. Great little nespresso coffee machine in your room! Great buffet breakfast and omelettes made to order!
There are several other boutique hotels on the same street, so it's a tourist friendly neighourhood with a good local vibe.
Burak and is team are simply excellent - they waited on us hand and foot. They prepared maps for us for our journeys out into the city, suggestions of restaurants etc. All were very good.
They arranged simple and easy transfers to the airport for us also.
Great place to stay. Super service!
