Business Traveller Expects Better from a 5 Star Property

The hotel location is very good but being a 5 Star hotel i was disappointed with the room. It was a small room with a very uncomfortable bed. The Toilet and shower was that of a 3 star property and not impressive at all. I travelling all over the world and this was quite disappointing. Would not book this property again as a 5 star option.

Perfect for group tourism

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.

Great location, very helpful staff.

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.

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.

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)

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.

Great location and excellent staff

Excellent location and a better bargain than the other high-end hotels nearby. Staff is great - they noticed that I had a birthday the day before I arrived and had room service bring some cake to my room that evening (compliments of the manager). Pretty good gym for a hotel.
