TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Marmara Pera Hotel Istanbul
Situated in the newer area of Istanbul, near the pedestrian Mall leading to Taksim Square. Great for shopping. The room was spacious and clean. The best thing about the hotel is the view from the rooftop pool and bar - sensational overlooking the old city, Golden Horn and Bosphorus Waterways.

My plan was to contact campus security first, then Bogazici's summer term office, and eventually find someone who spoke Turkish and English to accompany me to the bar where they had last seen their friend. Three girls who went to the bar the previous night accompanied me to the security office (25min walk) although, I was about ready to send one of them home. Literally, and I really do mean ...
... as their toes gripped the warm rocks. We noticed a sign that said something about a garden with a view of the Bosporus. At some point we realized that everyone else was strolling on this afternoon, while we were weaving around folks as though we had to be somewhere urgently. Good way to burn off hazelnut... At the top of the hill, with a multitude of tea spots overlooking the water, we found a table and ordered ourselves a pot. A beautiful old ...
... it was our driver's turn to give in. And pedestrians constantly in the "streets" were simply oblivious to us and somehow no one was hurt or killed, except our nerves!
The restaurant was one of about six that surrounded a nice little town square and fountain that I'm sure the usual tourists never see! And since it was Saturday evening, it was crammed! The place was a madhouse. Each restaurant had a balcony on its ...
