Location: Quiet street less than 10 mins stroll to Taksim Square. Rooms: Compact en-suite apartments with kitchenette facilities. Two units per floor apart from the top floor which has a "penthouse." Room was clean upon checking-in and maintained that way by the excellent housekeeper. There is no elevator, and stairs are steep and quite narrow. Studio #5 was loacted to... More

This hotel was previously known as Marti Apartments. I had two bookings for April 2015. In October 2014, the hotel charged my credit card in advance not once but twice for both bookings. The hotel would not refund my charges and refused to return my emails. Luckily Booking.Com intervened and refunded the full amounts thankfully. I fully recommend Booking.Com but... More

Based on the recent reviews, I see that I am not the only one being charged twice for my stay here. It was the last night of our stay and I enquired if I have any outstanding charges so that I could settle it and leave early the next morning. I specifically informed that I booked through Agoda and if... More

We stayed at Marti Apartments in September 2014 and whilst the hotel is nice and in a good location, we were charged twice for the same stay after booking through their online booking system. Despite promises that we would be refunded the money, and despite repeated emails and even phone calls - we still have not been provided with the... More

This is my worst experience booking such a rogue merchant through Agoda. The owner, Adam charged me to the full fees when I checked out even though Agoda has already charged me! Not only like, he lied that he is not the one to charge me, it is one of his employees when I clearly received his namecard and spoke... More

This is a service apartment hotel with a nice room with a well equipped kitchen ( Microwave, induction plate, cutlery) . Well you can easily make your meal . This is a great option for families with small kids . But if you are travelling as a couple, you wouldn't probably need these things as the hotel is a 3... More

Decent rooms, with everything in it. It does not have an elevator, and we had quite some stares to climb to our room (not quite convenient if your a little bit drunk). The service was great. Breakfast whenever you woke up, and people were always in the mood for a talk. Nice style.

After holidaying in SW Turkey for a fortnight, we finished off our trip with a few days in Istanbul, and this was where we stayed. We got a warm welcome from Adam and his staff, who all spoke excellent English. The apartments have no elevator, but they carried our luggage up for us. We were delighted to discover that breakfast... More

The apartments are very good. They are real tiny apartments with everything needed to lead a life you are used to: equipped kitchen, desk and wi-fi, and a balcony garden where you can sit and work or sit and chat. The location is perfect, too - you take a very short walk through cosy old streets to Taxim square and... More

We (my boyfriend is Turkish, I am Hungarian) stayed in the penthouse suite of Marti Apartments for 5 nights and it was probably the best hotel experience we have ever had. One of the most important reasons is that it did not feel like a hotel room, it was more like a cosy home with a wonderful terrace. The service... More
