It was “Maison Madeleny” 125 years ago
When we set off in 2013, our dream was to provide our hotel guests with the opportunity to live and breath the essence and history of Galata in a single street. So we decided to turn almost every 19th century Ottoman house in Şahkulu Street into an integrated unit of a single hotel.
Today Meroddi Pera Hotel is the first and only hotel of its kind in the whole of Istanbul, working under the concept of “distributed hospitality.”
Meroddi Pera Hotel serves as a boutique hotel since 2013, its 61 rooms in 7 historic buildings are located next to each other in the Şahkulu neighbourhood in Galata. Each property was carefully restored with utmost respect to the history of the building.
1891 records show the owner of our main building (Şahkulu Street, No. 20) as Mr. Andre Madeleny, who had a pharmacy, that also sold orthopaedic materials, at Grande Rue de Pera. This is why we name the main building after “Maison Madeleny,” today.
