Our stay at the Maroonist was simply magnificent. We had two rooms overlooking the Bosphorus with panaromic balcony views. Hagia Sophia, Prince Islands, Maiden's Tower and Bosphorus Bridge were so close, you could almost touch them! Rooms were comfortable and tastefully decorated with period style high quality fixtures and fittings and everything worked as it should. Breakfast was served at the room or balcony which was a welcoming change from the usual hotel buffet. Staff were very friendly and helpful, making every effort to ensure that our stay was most pleasant. Taksim Square, Istiklal Caddesi, Kabataş Pier are all within easy walking distance. We recommend Maroonist to everyone who want a first class Istanbul experience.
