The best part of hotel is its location (very close to subway) The worst part is its toilets. The toilet door is not sound proof (only blurred glass) but the toilet flush is old fashioned and makes a lot of noise. Furthermore the sink is outside the bathroom and near the bed(by the way quite fashionable) So if you use... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. The Marmara Şişli was furnished with the idea of 1950s. The effect of this concept was emphasized more in some of the rooms compared to the others and strong characteristics may create strong opposition. We are deeply sorry for this inconvenience you have... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The driver said it was located "down town" and it was really close to anything you might need. By taxi you can get quickly to all of the nice restaurant streets and clubbing, shopping and so on. The hotel was small and on the outside it might look a bit rough and... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much for your wonderful comment. In a city as big as İstanbul, most of the time, it is not so easy to name the real center since there are more than one.

An unexpected design of the room with washbasin beside the bed while the smallish washroom lacking any washbasin. To make it more "different", upon entering the room, you will find a "oh yeah" sign on the floor which can be disconcerting especially if you are on a business visit. Some rooms don't have this style so look for those rooms... More

I stayed in the hotel on business for about five days. I'll give a 10/10 to the staff, ambiance 10/10 but the A/C was not functioning very well and they had to change my room. Apart from the A/C everything thing else was good...Its close to the congress center, malls and lots of restaurants nearby.

A great stay in a very good, clean and well positioned hotel. The staff are very helpful and keen to impress and help. Some quirky features including the bar area which I found a real once place to sit and relax. The food was pretty good and there wasn't anything I would complain about.

The hotel is good. Clean Rooms. Excellent Service from individuals. Reasonable breakfast. The view from the top floor rooms is exquisite. The sound of the birds and the scenery is lovely!
