“Amazing Marmara..”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

the marmara sisli, is the best hotel you can stay in istanbul..
1. near to metro station that will take u to taksim square.
2. near to the cevahir mall .
3. too many cafes and restaurants near to the hotel.
4. too many supermarkets as well.
5. the hotel itself is great place to stay in, the breakfast was nice..not too many variaties but you will start ur day with good breakfast,
6. the room is good, its small but its ok as u r not staying at the room all the day!!
7. the reception guys are helpful, u can ask them advice for your schedule.
8. taxi are available outside the hotel.

This is a great hotel in the heart of the business and shopping area of Istanbul. You are only 5 mins walk from the six storey Cevahir shopping centre. Rooms are comfortable with the added bonus of a kettle in the room for coffee. Excellent buffet breakfast. We ate in the hotel restaurant a couple of times and the food was good. Staff speak English and will go out of their way to assist. It is NOT a great location if you want to go to the historic heart of the old city --we were charged 65 lira by a cab driver who couldn't find the place to come back from the Blue Mosque. BTW the AC is turned off on October 1st!

Room Tip: We stayed twice and both rooms were good.

Usually this hotel is a great adress when you need a hotel in a good central location, good price, comfortable rooms. But its not like that nowadays.

First of all there is something wrong with the general management. The front desk should be improved. They are not prepared for most of the demands and it took so much time to check in and out.

Second of all the rooms are generally worn-out. The standard rooms are small and there is no door seperating shower-toilet and the room.
My room was facing balconies of an old resident with 2 meters distance.

Never tried the breakfast but I liked the cafe-bar in the lobby. With good touch of renovation and better management this hotel has much more potential.
Anyway its still good value for money.

Marmara is one of my favourite chains when stay in Turkey.
This hotel i choose after recommendation from my friends as it is located in the
Sisli area,only 10min walk from Cevahir Mall.
Hotel is ranked as 4* and looks more like boutique hotel.
From the entry the feeling of high class quality service is all arround you.
The room is equipped with taste in unique way but size is not so big.
Bed is great,internet is free.
Breakfast is served in the main dinning room and is very tasty but if you want to drink turkish coffee or squeezed orange you have to pay arround 3-5 euros.
This is one of the best 4 star places in Istanbul where I stay in last 30 years.
Warmly recommended to business travellers.Real value.

The AC int room doesn't work.
After changing room the AC didn't work as well, I've asked to talk to a manage but the person in the front desk didn't want to help. All together this is the worst hotel I've ever been to..

Dear Sir;
Thank you for your kind interest to The Marmara Sisli Hotel.I am so sorry about your inconvenience that you experienced in your room with air conditioning system.
I guess due to high temparature of Istanbul this summer, our wonderful bosphorus view rooms offered you too much sun light in to your room.
For your next visit we would like to ensure you that you will stay in a very cool room:) We would only wish if you could put this unhappy experience beside and give us another try.

We have stayed for 2 nights with my family. I demanded an extra bed for a standard room, and they told that the room would be uncomfortable according to its size, they made a favor and moved us to a much bigger room without an extra cost. You can walk up to 2 big malls (Trump Towers and Profilo) in 5 minutes. The breakfast was very good. The staff was so polite. The rooms were redecorated which were very good.
