I would mainly recommend it for a long term place, not very fancy but still fancy enough. very cosy. the booking was very smooth, the apartments are good,some of them are better. and it's not overpriced.

From the beginning, the booking agents were very helpful and friendly. I called several times to ask further questions, they were always willing to assist. We needed a three bedroom, 3 bath in a good location, the Marmara was wonderful. Rooms were spacious, beds comfortable and when we requested additional amenities, they were provided. The staff was well informed and helpful, especially Dennis Young, Concierge. He always has a smile on his face, professional and really made a difference. What is not to like!!

Room Tip: Higher floors offer better views.

“What is not to like”?... that your “Excellent Stay” at the Marmara was not long enough! Thank you so much for being in residence here at the Marmara and taking full advantage of our “well informed and helpful” staff, they are thankful for your wonderful accolades.

I stayed here for a week and for the price, it was amazing, the apartment was spacious, high ceilings, amazing views of the city. I was on the 12th floor. The location was perfect for me, a short walk from the subway, local shops. The staff are great and always on hand to give you tips and advice should you ask for it.

Thank you for your direct approach, “great apartment” “great staff” and “amazing price”. Our work is done here except, to extend an open ended invitation to enjoy more of the same whenever you return.

I stayed at the Marmara Manhattan with my husband for 4 nights at the end of September. Our 18th floor apartment was beautiful with a view of the empire state building. It had everything we could hope for and the bed was so comfortable. The location of the hotel was perfect, only a short walk to the nearest subway station. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The construction work outside didn't disturb us during our stay. Would love to stay again if we are lucky enough to return to New York.

This great review will be hard to top! “Beautiful Manhattan Apartment” with a “beautiful Empire State Building view” in a “perfect location”, that will be tough to beat , but we will keep trying. Our “incredibly friendly” staff will be lucky ones, when you return to New York and choose the Marmara. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement

The hotel is located on 2nd Avenue and 94th street. This is not the best area in Manhattan and road work on the corner make things worse. However, for less money, you get an apartment in Manhattan. New York City action is only 10 to 20 minutes away by taxi and taxi fares are not very expensive if you travel after or before rush hours. The front desk service was efficient and polite. The one bedroom was large and comfortable. The furniture was nothing great but we didn't mind. Wi-Fi is sometimes slow. There is a supermarket about 100 m away and a nice Italian restaurant across the street. Overall we had a good stay at Marmara Manhattan hotel.

One of the greatest things about New York is discovering what new and exciting neighbourhoods have to offer. We’re glad you warmed to the Upper East Side and it’s local conveniences, not to mention the value and sheer space your “apartment in Manhattan” offered. Overall, we want to thank you for your gracious feedback, and are wish is to have you back soon.

I've just got back home to the UK from 5 days in NYC. My mother, sister and I couldn't have stayed in a better place. The suite we had on the 6th floor was very spacious, with our own kitchen & breakfast area, nice bathroom, spacious lounge/2nd bedroom and large master bedroom & dressing. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We want to say special thanks to Mehmet who came to check the sofa bed in our lounge the evening we arrived as we found it too short & uncomfortable. Mehmet was extremely helpful and went to find us a proper single replacement bed which he installed and made while we were out for a drink. The free use of computers / printers & internet downstairs in the lobby was also very useful. Although construction work was still going on on 2nd Avenue, we had no inconvenience from the work/noise whatsoever. Easy walk from the hotel to Central Park/Museum Mile on 5th Avenue. The subway (green line) is only a short walk from the hotel, so it's very easy to get to Midtown / Lower Manhattan. I would definitely return to the Marmara and recommend it to visitors of NYC.

So, we arrive in the States, manage to get though immigration (didn't put the founders through all that year's ago!) and manage by some slim chance to survive the cab ride to the Marmara hotel. First glance, you are greeted by a lot of construction going on which does not make you feel that happy. Once in the hotel itself though, the noise seems to dissipate.

The welcome is warm and uncomplicated which is what you need after 12 or more hours of travelling. The staff there were speedy and soon sort you out with your room keys and also a map of the area if you want it. Communications with regards to the subway are also forthcoming which is good.

Once in your room, you are greeted by a very clean environment which instantly makes you feel at home there. Tv in the living area and also the bedroom if you want to use that. Basic cable was included and mostly news channels but there were some movies on we found in the evenings too if you wanted to stay in. Kitchen area was also very clean and had all the basics you need to cook there including a fridge the size of a small house!

The passports and belongings etc are kept safe by a safe in the bedroom at no extra cost.

The wife exclaimed that the BED was the best she had ever slept in and rest was semi-assured and although the road is busy all night, we managed to sleep quite well - until the construction crews turned up with vigour at 6.30am!

All of the staff were great there, from the desk team to the cleaning staff. The last day we had there, we were out of the room by 11am which is not too early at all - we had a full day before we had to be at the airport and whilst we had checked out, the staff locked our cases away so that we could enjoy the last day without lugging those about with us.

As you are at the top of Manhatton and most of the sightseeing is to be had further south, you find the subway your best friend being about a 10 minute walk from the hotel itself.

In summary, we would go back to the hotel itself for sure but either get a room away from the construction or go back when it's finished. The one possible niggle if I had to find one would be the WiFi. It was free and it did work but on and off - if you wanted to Skype or have a lengthy connection, you would find that it dropped out - not the connection from.the hotel, it seemed to be the internet coming in. This could have possibly been the work going on outside which caused this issue. When it did work, it was a nice fast connection to do almost anything you would need it for.

Had a great time there and if you go, you will too.

Room Tip: I think all rooms will have a great standard but one further from the construction would be a good i...

“Welcoming, warm and uncomplicated”, now that’s a goal for all things in life, thank you. ..
Thank your wife also for her feedback, many agree with her the “the BED was the best ever slept in”. “In summary” we would be thrilled to have you back any time you return to New York, we can’t help with immigration or customs, but we can customize your return trip to equal the first!
