I have just returned from my 4th stay at Collage Pera. I prefer small boutique style hotels for their personal service and stylish decor and this one has both. The location is a couple of minutes from the Sishane metro and Tunel funicular, and also from the end of Istiklal Cd., the main shopping street.
We stayed at the Pera Palace for four nights in autumn 2014 and experienced a journey back in time, both into the world of late 19th century European architecture in Istanbul and into traditional standards of hospitality and attention that are nowadays hard to find. Pera Palace is an architecural gem in a splendid and nice location, with the surroundings benefiting from recent gentrification. With Galata bridge and Taksim Square at walking distance, there are few better places in the city. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and proactive; rooms are small but well furnished with all necessary amenities.

The hotel did not respect my reservation without notification. I was able to stay for a couple of nights, then in the third day they moved all my stuff without notification and gave me a crapy room. During this movement they lost one shirt that was in the closet, at the end they returned but asked me to give 3 hours to recover it (???).
When I arrived at check in, suspiciously my sweater got lost.
It was wonderfull experience staying there. Very close to every thing, 2 mins walk to taksim and 8 mins walk to train station. Every thing was very close by. Love the hotel staff very very professional
Help full and very kind

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel Richmond. Not only was the location excellent, the staff was friendly and helpful, the room was a clean quiet haven away from the busy shopping street below. The breakfast was also amazing -- fresh local produce and a ready supply of coffee and tea. The in-house restaurant also served fantastic food and has an amazing view although the waiter did not make us feel very welcome initially because we turned up without reservations.

rooms are quite small but well furnished. I love mirror and it has many in the room. We thought it has indoor swimming pool as indicated, and in fact it was one of the reasons we chose this hotel. there was a nice sun with perfect view on the roof top but were not furnished and with cold water not prepared for the gusts. the facilities were not complete for example we had to call them bring bathrobe or tooth past or Iron to our room. Breakfast was good but not the best. in total we didn't have serious problem and those things could be ignorable because of the comfort of the rooms.
"Great location at pera, close to istiklal street"
Located near tünel (the tramway that takes you to karaköy) and sishane metro stations. A 10 min walk away from taksim square. Possibly the best place to live in istanbul. Good facilities, but the wifi may be weak depending on the room you're in so check it before accepting the room assigned to you.
