Do not eat at the Kitchennette restaurant downstairs after 10pm. Their food was not fresh.

Great location, very helpful staff.

Would recommend Mon, Sep 17, 2012
Stayed four nights at the Marmara and really enjoyed our stay. The room is a little small, but normal for a major European city. Concierge service was really great, helping us book dinner on several nights and a cooking class. You can't beat the location for access to mass transit system and Istikal street. Very nice cafe downstairs (Kitchenette) that is better and cheaper than the hotel bar.

Time saver

Use the Metro (funicular & trams) to get around Istanbul. Cabs are cheap but traffic is always crazy and can take much longer.

Great City to explore as a couple.

Would recommend Mon, Aug 20, 2012
Hotel is well located. You can manage to travel by metro or taxi to all the tourist attractions throughout the city. The metro station is right across the street from the hotel, and it take about 20minutes to get to the Old City (where all the monuments and mosques are)

Entertainment hint

Take a cab, and have dinner at one of the restaurants at Reina Club. It´s good food, and loads of fun to party there. It´s the best club in town.

I spent 4 days in this hotel and the most important feature was the location. Its very central and there is a metro station next to the hotel that connects it to every important location in Istanbul. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. The breakfast was not as good as I expected it to be but its wasnt bad.

Really enjoyed being right in the middle of everything. Perfect for walking to shops, bars and restaurants. If not you can take the subway right across the street. There are also plenty of taxis and busses. Loved the hotel and the staff was wonderful. High would highly recommend The Marmara.

The hotel's location is amazing. I would like if they renovate the rooms because they are old and they don't suit the welcoming renovated lobby.
