I had a wonderful SPA experience in the The Marmara Hotel Taksim. Personnel is both friendly and caring. They are always smiling. Reception and guest relations are also so kind. I had just massage reservation but they also let me use sauna and steam bath. Deep Tissue Massage was wonderful. Deva is a great Balinese masseuze. Thanks for everything.

The hotel room was very pleasant and the outdoor pool was a bonus, but staff were not pro-active or forward thinking. For example, there were 3 of us staying in a room but we'd only receive 2 robes, bottles of water etc, welcome chocs etc. The maid would come in every morning when we were still sleeping, turn the lights...

I'm one of those people that really likes good coffee and I was amazed to find that I had my own little Nespresso machine in the room. Great idea that made the difference for me! They also have a big and comfortable lounge where you can stay. They're well prepared to receive people and very organized.

We stayed 5 nights at The Marmara Taksim,Istnabul. The location is superb. Safety is ensured. Facing the Taksim Square, you're at the heart of all activity. Just across is the buzzing Istiklal Street with plenty of nightlife and food and shopping. However, the hotel staff at the check-in is not the best. We were two girls and the management tried...
