Stayed in Marmara Pera in June for weekend. Came 3 o'clock in the morning. A little bit difficult to reach with a tazi: traffic jam all over. Very popular district for night clubs. Close to shopping street. A view from room was over Istanbul. Breakfast good, many possibilities. Staff friendly.

Room Tip: As k room from upper floors.

Dear Valued Guest,

First of all, I have to thank you for your feedback.

The Marmara Pera is literally located at the heart of the city: which makes it much more desirable. Since the area is one of the most spectacular spots in the city, traffic is a burden that unfortunately we have to bear from time to time.

However, as soon as you reach the hotel, we have a huge team waiting to give you the secrets of avoiding the traffic, yet still enjoying it!

We are looking forward to welcoming you in The Marmara Pera many more times.

Kind regards,

I have stayed in this hotel on a regular basis - business & pleasure. It is in the heart of the Taksim area - 200 meters off the Istiklal Cad - a bustling pedestrian area. It is a 10 to 15 TL taxi ride from the heart of the tourist area - Sultanamet. The attraction is - this is where the locals in Istanbul come to eat & stroll in the evenings & feast in the night club spots - often late into the night. So if you like people watching - this is a good place to come. Lots of cheap to expensive restaurants - a wide range - with great al fresco eating - as you watch the crowds.
The hotel itself is a modern 19 levels hotel. Expensive restaurant on 18th, pool on 19th - & my favoured smoking only rooms on the 17th. Bar with bar menu & buffet breakfast on ground floor. Small gym in basement - used to be on 9th? from memory with a view over street below - much better! They say they are going to move it up a few floors again.
Rooms are mostly small - as per most rooms in Istanbul - twins seem to offer best size - but they come in different sizes - small to medium. Once stayed in a suite - big! Rooms well appointed with good TV (50 odd channels - some English / International). Small but smart shower room - good size shower - works well. Staff are great - they can get busy - small waiting times - but very friendly in reception. Everyone seems to happy to help - delighted if you practice your 10 words of Turkish - even fooled a young waitress into thinking I was Turkish speaking with a confident 'Mirabar' / hello in Turkish. Small pleasures for this weary traveller! Rooms can be noisy with windows open even on top floors - bar music below on weekends goes on late into the night - only drawback for the hotel - but I suspect it is difficult to get away from it in Istanbul. Every where is busy, bustling & noisy.
My betting there are better hotels in Istanbul - grass is greener - but for me - it is a home in Istanbul. Sad guy that calls a hotel 'home' - but that's my life. Wife approved the hotel as well - mostly for location, clean rooms, great staff - but not the noise so much.

Room Tip: Look for Bosphoros view - south facing (costs more). Higher floors.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for you wonderful detailed review.

I should send this article to our marketing department to be used in The Marmara Pera advertisements!

Taksim is one of the oldest residential and business areas of İstanbul which naturally makes the area the most colourful and spectacular part of the city, enriched with hundreds of stores, restaurants and people, 24 hours.

As The Marmara Pera Hotel, we aim to serve our guest as excellent as possible and progress ourselves continuously. It is great when we have such beautiful feedbacks.

We are grateful for your superb description of your The Marmara experience.

Looking forward to welcome you back in our property and practice some Turkish!

Saygılarımızla (Regards),

I have stayed in this hotel twice now and both for business. The staff are friendly and the service for events was very good I found. The rooms are quite small I felt, and gave you a feeling of being cramped. Only downside was trying to get a seat for breakfast as it gets very busy and the space is small.

Being in Istanbul only briefly we were at the Marmara Pera to eat in the restaurant when a crisis at work suddenly made it imperative to get hold of an internet line. On request I could use the business center at no extra cost. And when the computers there experienced some problems the staff went out of their way trying to help me, and I got to use their reception desk computer! I really can not thank them enough for their friendliness and helpfulness. This is certainly the place to stay in Istanbul!!

Every single person from the desk check-in to the cleaning staff was friendly and welcoming in a relaxed nice way. The rooms are clean, some have a marvelous view. The lobby is a good place to meet up with people. Great walking opportunities - department stores, pubs, clubs. A good mid-price choice.

Wonderful view, good service, very clean and great location. You are in the center of the city on the European side, getting to places are easy and inexpensive..

About 3 blocks away on a major street there are banks, restaurants, pubs and all kind of stores.

I would definitely recommend it..

Room Tip: I rated the spa and breakfast as average since I did not try it.
