“very nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

nice hotel,hotel staff excellent. Main tourist attractions-need to walk 15-20 minutes and then "tram". Steep hill to walk to main areas in Sultanahmet. Nice places to eat close by.
If you are interested in night life-nothing in the area and you would need to take train or tram.View from dining room is nice and breakfast is average but was included in room price-so good value for money. Hotel is very good value for money. Room was spotless and bathroom had shower only which for us is all we need. Hotel is clean and we had a turkish bath(? hamam) in the spa in the basement and again excellent and good value for money. A very nice couple run the spa.

Room Tip: we used train and tram late at night without difficulty

Marmaray hotel is located in a very strategic place; it is surrounded by famous historical places such as: Blue mosque, Aya-Sofia, Place of Topkapi, University of Istanbul and not far also le Grand bazaar.
As concerns the hotel, is built in the modern style, the rooms are quit small but well arranged, its workers are very helpful and kind.
The breakfast room is found in the top floor, it has a panoramic and a wonderful view of the Marmara Sea; that you wished to see each morning.
Other impotent places that I forget to mention are the Princesses’ islands, the boat takes visitors till there, and you will get the opportunity to see Bosphore and Marmara Sea in the same time.
For the visitors who like shopping, they have to visit Taksim and Beyazit, the bus station and tramway are not far from the hotel.
For us, it was really an excellent and unforgettable 'Honey-moon' into Turkey.
Do not lose your time to look for a hotel, Marmaray is the best choice.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2011

Although I do not think the Marmaray should be classed as a 4 star hotel, we did find the staff very helpful and the decor in the common areas super. The room amenities were basic, with cheap furniture but comfortable beds. The toilet broke every day and the air conditioning never worked at all. The location is not great or scenic. The breakfast was uninspired. I would stay there again if I was on a short visit but it really isn't 4 star so not good value for money.

The hotel is located close to the Yenikapi train station (soon also with subway connection). It is in walking distance (20 min) to many of Istanbul's sights. The quarter is full of other small hotels.
The house is modernized, rooms are small, but functional. The breakfast room in the top floor has a panoramic view of the Marmara Sea.
Service is o.k., breakfast is included and has enough Turkish flavor to get in the mood.
Sty there, when you need something acceptable at fair rates.
