I read that the Marmara Pera was the "funky little sister" of the Marmara Taxim. I don't know about that. It didn't seem particularly "funky" from my perspective. But I may be a bit harsh on that, as I have spent a lot of time in really funky NYC hotels. But, all that being said, this is a great hotel. It is nicely situated. The staff is friendly AND helpful. The rooms are well designed and cozy. AND they just happen to house one of the top restaurants in Istanbul. Overall, well worth the price.

... I would describe this Turkish bath as a massage on steroids - takes twice as long, includes a scrub down, and wash with lots of foam bubbles.

... Ryan took us on a shirt walking tour if the city. I went to the Grand Baazar. There were so many shops, and I easily got lots within the maze. There were some lovely plates and bowls I wanted to get, but there is no way to get them home without breaking. So I settled for some bracelets. I went down to the Spice Markets also. They had lots of spices and Turkish delight. Around 3pm I went to the Turkish baths. It cost €50, and involved ...

... the required dishes - Turkish breakfast plate and Menemen a type of omelette with vegetables and of course Turkish coffee. It was delicious and really we could not eat a thing more after it but we still wanted to eat kamac which is clotted cream and honey. Sadly we pulled up short. We then did our 2 sightseeing historical locations, firstly the Sunken Palace Cistern which is a large underground well for the town. We got a bit side tracked down ...
