“Terrible Bed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

The only good thing is its location, the location is perfect!
Room furniture is verry old, bed is not comfortable AT ALL! The AC wasn't that good too.
Breakfast was good, but they charge extra for orange juice and omellete.

Room Tip: the higher floors have way better views.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I stayed for one week, I found it good & clean hotel with great location, its not a luxiourios one, but basic for budget travellers that seek for only clean and good place to sleep and accommdaote, just few steps to taksim square with a side street access to Istiklal street directly, room was clean and renovated, medium sized that accommdoated king size bed additionaly a baby cot, staff were helpful, breakfast was good with plenty kind of cheese, cold cuts, eggs & pastries.
I can say that all in all was a good stay and if I ll go to istanbul I can return back to same hotel...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Bathroom is clean. The bed was not very comfortable and the sheets had small stains. Furniture is old but functional.
Location is great because it sits on top of istiklal sokak and is less than a minute walk to taksim bus and metro stations.
One employee was rude to us for asking a question about payment procedure.
We stayed for one night and it was an average experience overall.
@ 235TL/night, it's not to be repeated.

Small rooms, old furniture, broken washbasin at the toilet,too noisy.The breakfast it is rather "poor" and after 08.30 they don't renew the items.It's central hotel but there're so many others much better (I've been in Instanbul 8 times)close to Taksim square.

The only good thing about this hotel is location , the room are outdated with furniture dates back to the 1980's , the bathroom is awful with the fan connected to the room near by so you can hear your neighbour will he ( or she ) using the bathroom !!!!
The breakfast is fine but the staff are very un friendly and not smiling at all ( I stayed there 5 nights and did not see any of them wears a smile ) .
The house keeping is very primitive as the room was full of dust , and sound isolation is so weak as you can hear street noise from third floor .

Marble hotel is located very close to Istiklal street, the main shopping street in taksim square.
it is also very close to the main transportation (Buses, Metro, Underground & funicular).
the breakfast is good & you can enjoy it with the bosphorous view.
Rooms are clean, beds are very small & the room is small too with a very simple furniture. the bathroom is clean also and they change the bed sheets daily. the AC is fine.
I would recommend it if anyone is looking for its location

Room Tip: king beds for couples are very small

1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Usually I dont like to complain and overstate things, but this was to much even for me. Mr "Bob", who is working at the reception did not even pretend to be polite. He made all kind of unacceptble jokes with me. And mentioned something about my nationality...without any reason. This is a 4star hotel, not 1star where you can expect whatever.
I think this kind of behavior is unacceptable for stuff working directly with people especially at the hotel.
I will never ever stay there again even if it is for free and will say to all my friends and people I know about this awfull experience.
But other personell at the hotell were ok.
