“Great for 5 of us”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

We stayed at the Marmara for 8 days including Christmas, being the 2 of us plus our 3 grown "kids" we needed a 3 bedroom apartment. The apartment was great, clean and modern, great facilities, 3 bathrooms and wi-fi plus washer, dryer and kitchenette. The staff and their service and helpfulness were excellent. The larger aprtments are (I think) mainly on the upper floors, so we got views of the East River and across to the Empire State building. Ray's Pizza across the street, Bagel Express around the corner and plenty of eating spots within 2 blocks, 96th Street subway station only 2 blocks away, and Central Park and the Museums are are only a 10-15 min walk. Great hotel in a great location.

“Great hotel in a great location”,…. guess there is nothing more to say, but we are so glad you did. Our 3 Bedroom Suites are truly a marvel couple that with “helpful and excellent” staff, NOW there truly nothing more to say. Thanks a million….no two million.

Our stay in The Marmara Manhattan for five full, but glorious days, in the first week of December 2013, was outstanding. Four girls travelling together, wanting to experience all of what N.Y had to offer,we could not have been happier with the service, helpfulness and hospitality. We stayed on the 22nd floor, with a double and twin spacious rooms, with breath taking views of the East River and the Empire State Building. The staff, especially Dennis and Tyler, could not have been more accommodating, with directions and recommendations to local diners for breakfasts or to the nearest subway, which we quickly mastered, and was soon venturing far and wide. As someone has already stated, we saw a little of the real New York, where we were situated, and because we were especially blessed with exceptional mild weather, for that time of year, we did a lot of walking. Central Park was very close by, to which we took advantage of, enjoyed all of what it had to offer, and then ended up Downtown amongst it all going on. Every evening we would arrive 'home' late, after our ventures, but always greeted with courteous and welcoming staff. The rooms were exceptionally clean, very spacious and very warm. A big, Thank You, to all the staff, as nothing was to much trouble, even when it came to keeping our luggage in a holding area, as we wanted to squeeze all we could out of our last day, before we had to venture home later that evening. A fabulous time had by us all!!

We get a warm fuzzy feeling every time one of our cherished guests refer to the Marmara Manhattan as their “home”. We could receive no greater compliment, thank you. “Four girls in N.Y.” sounds like a fantastic beginning to a great vacation, and sounds like you took full advantage. We are so glad you enjoyed the Upper East Side and chose to use the “real New York” as your jumping off point to all of New York. Thank you for your marvelous review.

We stayed at the Marmara Manhattan for 8 days over the Christmas New Year period in 2013/2014 and couldn't have been happier with our accommodation. We stayed in a fabulous 3 bedroom apartment on the 31st floor with sweeping views of the East River and the Empire State Buikding. What a beautiful way to start each day! The closest subway line was 4 blocks away although the 2nd Avenue subway currently under construction will mean there's one literally at the door. The staff were attentive but not obtrusive and were always ready with a warm greeting whenever you left or returned to the building. The doormen deserve a special mention for volunteering to get taxis when the temperature was -12 and for doing it with a smile. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Christmas and New Year in New York, what a great trip! We could not be happier you were able to holiday with us, and even happier you enjoyed the “fabulous” 3 Bedroom Suite. Our doormen are very thankful for their “special mention” and are eager to be of service to those you would “definitely” recommend to us. Indeed you are correct, when you return we look forward to having our very own subway stop, what could be more convenient.

As a party of 7 staying for 5 days we needed somewhere spacious and the three bed roomed suite ticked ALL the boxes ! On the 31st floor it was superb !! Plenty of room and all the facilities we required ! Staff were excellent too ! Eg our toaster developed a fault brand new one delivered to suite within the hour ! No problems with WI Fi as other reviewers have stated ! Worked fine ! And the building works going on outside did not affect us at all ! Plenty of takeaways , pubs and supermarkets nearby too ! Nice meal at Nico's just across the street ! Loved the location also ! You got to see the real New York with friendly people going about their daily business unlike the more touristy Downtown ! Disaster struck on our fourth night though ! Our Mother became seriously ill and had to be rushed to hospital ! A great big thank you to Denise who calmly called the emergency services while we were all in a state of panic ! Mum had to stay in hospital for a week ! Panic again ! What about accommodation ??? No problem ! We got to stay for the extra days in the suite ! So to Dennis , Robert , Tyler ,Vanessa, Ida thank you all so much ! Also the doorman ( never got his name !) who enquired about Mum daily! Your help and understanding at this difficult time was much appreciated ! ( hope you liked the flowers Denise !!! ) mum is back home and recovering well !
Will definitely return to the Marmara sometime in the future ! Cannot recommend it or the staff highly enough !!

Room Tip: If your a large party eg 7-8 people ask for room 3103 ! You won't be disappointed !!

We are very pleased that “Mum” is on the road to recovery, and all wish her a fast one. Some reviews speak for themselves and yours is a stand out, thank you for taking the time to mention so many staff members by name, you have made their day. We are thrilled that you have promised to return and look forward to that day, hope that day is soon.

We arrived late from LA- the check in was easy and the staff always courteous.The room was clean and comfortable and serviced daily.The hotel is located in the Upper East side.After we got our bearings we realised we were only a short walk to Central Park and also 96th St Subway station.Travel on the subway was inexpensive and easy.We enjoyed our New York holiday immensely and would recommend this hotel.

We are “immensely” happy we were able to host your first stay in New York here on the Upper East side, and appreciative of your kind review. Now that you have your bearings and a seasoned New Yorker we want to invite you back to enjoy all of them, hope to see you again in the spring.

We stayed at the Marmara Manhattan for four nights. We found all the staff to be helpful, courteous and happy and check in/out was quick and easy. There were three adults in our one bed apartment was comfortable and spacious and the sofa bed was as comfortable as the bed. A safe is provided free of charge and the rooms were cleaned daily. The facilities were great, the kitchen well stocked and everything you needed was at hand. There are plenty of restaurants, fast food shops nearby and a supermarket just across the street. It's a five minute walk to 96th Street Subway Station and 10-15 minutes ride to Grand Central, all easy to navigate with staff on hand to help if you get disorientated. A 15 minute walk will bring you to Central Park and onto the Uptown Bus Tour route. If you're looking for apartments in New York I would definitely recommend the Marmara Manhattan.

Room Tip: If they are available the hotel offers free upgrades to larger apartments.

This was our 4th stay at this hotel.We have booked a 2 bed room suit and when we arrived learned that we were upgraded to a 3 bed room one..A nice surprise from Neslihan Cafer.
From the very beginning to the check out,every staff of the hotel tried to make our stay unforgettable.Hamit at the entrance was always very helpful.The rooms were spacious,very clean and well equipped.The view including the east river on one side and empire state on the other was making our nights even more unforgettable.Heating was never a problem even the weather was so cold.Marmara Manhattan is our home in NYC,and I definitely recommend this hotel to everybody without any hesitation.

Room Tip: Upper and back side rooms would be more comfortable until 2016 because of the subway construction.
