First, it is not clear why any tourist would want to stay in this area of Istanbul where the main sight is Istiklal Street, basically an outdoor shopping mall with international chain stores. Taksim Square itself isn't very interesting, primarily a large cemented area full of people transiting the area and the site for large gatherings (none while we were... More

A highly recommended hotel, the place is in the heart of Istanbul, in the middle of Taksim square and on the head of Istiklal street, the most famous place for shopping as all brands are there. moreover,food& shisha lovers will find it so close to there needs in addition to night life from bars and pubs

We stayed on a superior suite for 5 days. The hotel is a bit old but located in a perfect spot. The personnel was exquisite, always polite and helpful. The breakfast very good and the lobby most comfortable. The price was average if you consider the whole package. I would recommend it for a few days business trip.

I spent two nights here, the hotel is right in the city centre. Stayed in room 1708 had a fantastic view of Taksim Square, breakfast buffet was very good with an assortment of fruits which was quite impressive. The hotel checkin, luggage and concierge services were very polite and efficient. I was allowed to checkin early without and hassle.

Very slow staff at the reception desk. Our room was so tiny we could barely move. Mini bar offers everything you may need, that a plus. Nothing special really except for location- close to everything.

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...
