Kind staff, nice room and accommodated my daughter and I in allowing us to leave our overwhelming luggage in their hotel for the four days prior to our actual stay there (we went to izmir and Capaddochia before our stay here). To really impress us, they prepared a birthday card and a delicious treat for my daughter's birthday! Convenient location,... More

That said ; all was well . Reception was pleasant , facilities in good shape , room well equipped but... More

Hotel has as best part a concierge who doubles as a local tour advisor. For a shopping holiday a good base to start with since it is at the start of the longest shopping streets in Istanbul. Rooms decent and clean. Found better options arround this area.

On the top floor of the hotel, you can have dinner. The view is simply amazing - you can see the bosphorus with the bridge: the best place to look at fireworks. Moreover, you can see sultanameth by night, really nice. The food is quiet ok and the service good. So very good address for a romantic dinner.

We stayed at this hotel for the second time and found it to be an enjoyable experience as the first time (few years ago). We have had rooms both facing the Taksim square and the sea and we loved them both. Great room, great service, superb location, and friendly staff.

The hotel furniture and facilities are old though it was recently renovated as i heared, however the location is excellent at the heart of Istanbul, direct access to Taksim square and Istiqlal road, food is average. The hotel has a direct view on the Bosphore and Golden Horn.

We had a business conference and stayed in the Marmara with a group of more than 100 people. The hotel coped admirably well. Check-in was super efficient, the conference staff very knowledgeable and meals tasy and ample. The bar and restaurant on the top floor provided great views in all directions.
