“Just right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Our family of 5, staying on same floor in 2 separate apartments, had a great time in NYC, largely because we were well placed at E94th and had great staff to help us out at every turn. Great suggestions on the "typical" stuff that tourists "have to do", but more than that, golden tips on personal secrets and less often visited sites and experiences.
Having the subway reconstructed right outside was a slight downer, and yes, would have been nice to have to fork out for 2 apartments, but couldn't have done that anywhere else either.

Room Tip: Go for higher floors - escape the street noise and better views

Thank you for your “Golden, Just Right” review. We pride ourselves offering a great location and personalized service “at every turn”. Not to worry, with every week the subway is closer to fruition, while the “golden tips” from our “great staff” will always be “Just Right”. Hurry back to the Upper East Side where your stay will never be “typical”.

Thank you for taking the time to give your gracious feedback, Free is “cool”, glad you took full advantage of your WiFi. We have become jaded as New Yorkers, we enjoy being “a lil” away from times square madness, the short walk to the subway is close enough for comfort. We look forward to your eminent return.

We had a great time at this hotel/apartment on the Upper East Side for a week over this New Year.
We had a large one bedroom apartment with ensuite, a large kitchen/dining and living room with a huge balcony. The views over Manhattan were amazing. The Reception staff were warm and friendly - Dennis & Christopher in particular. Great knowledge and recommendations about the local area and City.
Our female friends also had a one bed apartment and felt very safe and secure in the building, neighborhood and city as a whole.
This is not a traditional hotel with restaurant and bar. These are well equipped apartments for making a base to explore the amazing New York. Some areas of the building could have done with a minor touch up and modernization but they provide excellent value for money and were spotlessly clean.
Our Room - 1104 - had a great view of the East River and some of the bridges. The Green 6 subway Line is just two blocks away and the Museums are about 4 blocks away.
We were very happy with this accommodation that we choose via Virgin Holidays.
Cant wait to go back.

“Great Value and space” is a theme we never tire of hearing, so glad you gave us the opportunity to be your “base to explore” from. Your high praise for the housekeeping and front desk staff is a song to our ears.
“Cant wait” to have you back to share more “Great New York knowledge” with you in the very near future.

I am surprised how many reviews are wholly positive and do not mention the 2nd avenue subway construction that surrounds this hotel. I am attaching a few photos so potential visitors know what it looks like at ground level. Of course, if you are going to be out all day it shouldn't bother you too much. They are not always really noisy, but they do start early and finish late.

We have just returned from New York having spent the New Year period there. We booked with virgin holidays and chose to stay at the Marmara Manhattan and we are really pleased we did. The apartments are slightly dated but are fully equipped:- dishwasher, microwave, fridge, cooker, coffe maker, cups, plates, etc etc. We were supplied with towels, hairdryer, tea towel, a little bag of tea bags, coffee, sugar etc etc and the apartment even had washing up liquid and dishwasher detergent. The apartments were cleaned each day and the staff were friendly. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in away from home and I had no trouble sleeping. I also made two local telephone calls and I was not charged. In the basement of the hotel there is a gym that my son used on a daily basis, a launderette and toilets. The hotel is a little out of the way but the metro station was only two blocks away and we used this daily. The metro is so easy to use unlike our underground. You either go uptown or downtown so no major decisions to make and cheap to use. There are several eating places around the hotel which I will write seperate reviews on trip advisor. There are several grocery stores nearby. Our room was on the 17th floor and we were given a balcony so the views were spectacular. Construction of the new underground continued all the time we were there but we didn't suffer any noise at night. I can't comment on the daytime as we were out all day. We travelled with my son and his girlfriend and they stayed on 15th floor also enjoying the same comforts as we were afforded. They were very pleased with their apartment and the hotel overall. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who is travelling to New York.

Room Tip: The rooms appear to be very similar. Some have balconies and some do not. We had a little trouble w...

New York for Christmas, could anything be better? M
Many thanks for being our guest. The true test for any Hotel is not the minor problem, its recognizing the opportunity for a great outcome, by its “friendly and welcoming” staff. Kudos to our diligent engineering staff, who work around the clock to ensure your comfort ASAP.
Thank you for your recommendation it means a great deal to us.

Just returned from a great stay at the marmara!! we were a family of four..we stayed in a one bed apartment and had plenty of room.apartments were clean but could do with a little update ie: heating and bathroom fittings were a bit dodgy..our main room heating actually broke but it was fixed asap so wasnt a problem..there is a lot of construction in the area but wasnt a problem as we were out all day and we were on the 21st floor so no noise problems..The staff were friendly and welcoming and any problems we had were dealt with straight away..the main bed was super comfy..would reccomend this hotel to others as we had a lovely stay and totally enjoyed nyc at christmas..x

We were in New York for four days in late December to attend our son's wedding. We couldn't believe the price we were quoted and were somewhat concerned that it may be a dump. We were so wrong. The staff was awesome, the location was great, the unit was spacious. It had the most incredible night views. On one of the evenings, we invited our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren to join us for a movie and dinner. They were surprised with the amount of space. The is no question about where we will be staying the next time we go to spend time with our son and daughter in law.

“No question about it” we cant wait to have you back! All the family is welcome too here at the Marmara. Incredible value is exactly what we quote, sit back and enjoy the
“incredible” view with no concern”. “Awesome staff, great location, spacious with a view” such an overwhelming response, we cannot thank you enough. Please convey our congratulations to the happy couple once again....
