“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

My stay 15OCT2013 - 19OCT2013

I've been to Istanbul several times maybe 10+ during the last 8 years. I've always booked directly with hotels in the past. This time I thought a give Priceline a try since I've always been successful with bidding on hotels in Europe. Marble Hotel was the hotel awarded. My bid was $5.00 - $10.00 less than the going rack rate.

Pros: The hotel is in the central area of Taksim Sq.
Quick walk from the Havatas shuttle from the airport 10TL o/w
Nice breakfast room.
Nice lobby.

Cons: Noisy neighborhood due to the several night clubs in the area.
Nearby restaurant exhaust vents directly into room if your window is open.
Darkened halls, illuminated by motion detector only.
Bring white noise device as walls are paper thin.
Bathroom needs major overhaul, mold, mildew, rotted bathroom door frame, cracked
tiles, thread bare towels.
Thread bare sheets, hard mattress, safe? safe large enough to hold wallet and cell.

Look else where for a hotel you'll thank yourself.

Room Tip: No good rooms, front has street noise and club noise at night. Back has exhaust fumes from restaura...

The hotel is so close to Istiklal street and Taksim square, you can walk there anytime in few mins. We stayed in a room with a side sea view, not bad at all since we hadn't made any special request to our booking. It was a nice room and spacious, big bathroom and the bed was comfy enough. The breakfast was very good, with fresh products. I so loved the variety of olives!!! The staff was friendly and helpful!!!
But i think changes must be done, particularly indoors such as some old furniture inside the rooms, a good and healthy air conditioning system inside the rooms (legionella is a danger) and perhaps a good and bigger internet corner.
Overall we had a very nice stay!!!

I have been staying in Marble hotel twice and i should say that nearby to Taksim square and Istiklal is an advantages.And also the breakfast include various things.Getting deposit for safety box is not normal as i know that they do it.In addition the room that in the street side has a problem at night because of noise in the street i mean beep of taxi and machine in the rush over.

Hello! Hotel Marble is close to the square Taksim. This is really good because you can go every night for a walk in main street Istiklar Cadesi, which is sure a street to remember and there is always something going on. Hotel is ok, I don't know if its overpriced because I went with touristic agency. There are rooms with sea view, but mine room had closed view on another building and seagulls made noise at night. Bathroom was clean, the entrance to the bath is a little bit high and not suitable for elder people. The towels and sheets were clean and often changed. Breakfast was the usual but the coffee was bad, not real Turkish coffee.

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.
