Ok location, not so far away from metro or the Gran Bazaar (or most of the sights). But the style is quite kitchy, everything is brown or golden. Breakfat buffet is average, Soup and french fries for breakfast is not really that normal, fortunately they have "normal" stuff as well. Rooms rather small but ok, some noise can come from... More

We were there for two nights. The hotel itself is nice. The rooftop bar"s view was outstanding but watch out for the cocktails price tags. Our room was small. The a/c was lousy and didn't cool the room much if at all. The toilet and bathroom was not clean enough. The beds were singles and small but comfortable. The breakfast... More

We spent a night at the Marmaray Hotel. I really appreciated the fact that their staff is nice and helpful. They let us leave our luggage for a whole day at the hotel without paying. They also gave us some tips concerning the currency exchange rates. They told us to go to the city centre as it was better for... More

The 1st room I was given wad pokey, dark and stank of cigarettes. The sea view I'd paid for didn't exist. At breakfast they served instant coffee! And the food was so so, edible but nothing to write home about.

Dear travelers, In general, once you're in Istanbul you don't really need the hotel. Still, as a place to put your head, this place could offer more than what it's suggesting. For me, the acute problem is the Internet Wi-Fi which you can hardly find in the hotel. I do not understand why the hotel management do not invest some... More

Stayed at this hotel from 1/6/14 till 3/6/14. Location very very average. Very narrow lanes lead to hotel so bus drops on main road from where we have to lug the luggage over cobbled road. We had senior citizens in our group so imagine their plight especially on a wet day. The lifts are pathetically small and it takes ages... More
