As said by other visitors, the best thing about this hotel is its location in the middle of Taksim area, close to the shopping centres. However, there are other decent hotels in the area that are cheaper and provide the same services. If I would visit Istanbul again, I would stay in Sultan Ahmet area close to the historical places and bazaars as it is much nicer for those who like sightseeing.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled with family

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for expressing your opinion on Trip Advisor. As you kindly noted, The Marmara Taksim does enjoy being in the heart of the most dynamic part of Istanbul, which provides easy access for our guests to the main points of attraction. Sultan Ahmet area is however, more historical and isn’t too far from our hotel either.

We wish you safe travels and hope you enjoy your time in Istanbul no matter where you choose to stay!

Sincerely,
Minay Masimova
Guest Relations Manager

The Marmara Taksim hotel is located in the very heart of Istanbul. You just need to go down and start walking. The room is spacious and clean. The breakfast is good and the view in the executive lounge is phenomenal

The welcome is all Turkish in its red accents!
Capable and helpful front desk and concierge services.

Breakfast set up is mediocre at best.

Room(s) on 16th floor are attractive if given a view of the Sea of Marmara.
Was very noisy due to major construction a block away.

Room Tip: Insist on a water view.

the funicular is right across the street from the hotel. for a small price, you hop on that and it takes you to the bottom of the hill and the street cars where you can easily get to most of the historical sites. the traffic in Istanbul is horendous, so taking public transit can be the way to go.

the fitness centre is clean, spacious and has every possible piece of equipment you can think of. very impressive.

the breakfast was the best we had in Turkey of the three hotels we stayed at for our 10 day tour. it had everything your heart desired.

the restaurant on the top floor has a spectacular view at night. however, our meal was only average and the service was extremely slow to the point of us getting up and complaining to the manager after waiting 20 minutes for our bill.

the front desk staff were extremely knowledgable about where to eat, what to do and how to get there. they made our stay extremely enjoyable as a result.

Room Tip: rooms across from the Taksim Square are likely the noisiest and the taxis honk their horns into the wee hours of the night - and they definitely honk their horns until 4 am on a Saturday night as the bars stay open late. hundreds of taxis. trust me on that one.
