I have recently been in marmara taksim hotel from 19 to 24 feb. It has aperfect location if you like taksim area but it was overrated and didn't feel like a 5-star hotel . There were other hotels nearby with more more valuable prices

Wondering around Taskim? Looking for an upper class restaurant to dine in?, wonder no more. Come to a The Marmara Taskin hotel and dine in peace with a view of the whole Taskin (square). I have to admit, you need at least €100 or $120 to have a romantic dinner for two (this won't be an everyday dinner....so go on... More

We visited on a Sunday in January 2015. We booked a table for two for lunch and took a tram and the tunnel and an old tram and arrived late. No problem once we had established with the security guards that the restaurant we had booked existed. Charming restaurant staff. Perfect table for two overlooking the Stalinist square. Very good...

I don't know anything about the hotel, but the fitness center is spectacular. One of the best, if not the best, I've ever been in. It is sparklingly clean, the staff are all really nice and helpful, the locker rooms are beautiful, the equipment is all new Life Cycle stuff, there are plenty of machines, the main room is very...

Taksim Square is a convenient base to experience the charms of Istanbul. The hotel is right across the square giving a grandstand view of this famous square, including politics being played out between the government and the protestors. The rooms were slightly small, well appointed, tho it could do with a thorough refurbishment. Breakfast, included in the price, was well... More

Location of the hotel is good, common areas are nicely designed and look quite nice, but when you go on the floors, the corridors and rooms are old and crying for remodeling... So, it was not very pleasant.

I've stayed 3 nights at this hotel and it was disappointing for a 5 star hotel. The rooms are nice and modern, however it was possible to see fluff on the floor corners when we first arrived. The reception staff is nice but not very fluent in English, whereas the restaurant staff, specially the men, are not friendly at all... More
