This is the hotel if you fancy a luxurious stay at the heart of Taxim square. Adding to its excellent location, its modern design, its gym out looking the vibrant square, and its multilingual staff… many are the reasons to have it as your first choice.
Now I didn’t find its large halls and sitting areas to be matching in cleanliness the 5 star it claims but having access to the finest wine, cheese, chocolate and a great view was all my heart needed to melt inside this residence before stepping outside to enjoy more of Istanbul’s delicacies. Now the rooms to me were quite neat and simple but equipped with business rooms, a tea room and a hair Salon celebrating together with the rest of the hotel excellence and style.

A luxury hotel in the heart of the city, the Marmara overlooks Taksim Square and has great views of either the Square and city, or the Sea of Marmara to the back. There’s an outdoor pool on the roof, spa facilities and a gym. The hotel provides great business facilities and is a nice respite if you’ve spent the day working hard in Istanbul. However, it has the added advantage of being a short walk to the fish restaurants and bars of Beyoglu. If you’re feeling too lazy even for a short walk, there are two restaurants in the hotel that both make the most of the views.

You can see it from practically everywhere in Istanbul: the tower on Taksim Square with the giant TV on top. The Marmara is the most upscale hotel in the immediate vicinity of Taksim and it's worth the money--if you can afford it. It has the usualy amenties: doorman and valet service, a rooftop swimming pool, a view of both Taksim and the Bosphorus, a gourmet Turkish breakfast and a worthwhile restaurant/bar. There is an in-house salon, shoe shine stands and Starbucks is literally 50 meters from the front door.

The Marmara never loses its charm. You’d miss a great deal if you refrain from staying at The Marmara fearing it might be full. Yes, the hotel has no ‘high’ or ‘low’ seasons, it is brimming with guests every day. But what it offers in means of city experience, leisure activities and tastes are significant.

The Marmara is not highlighted only because of its location. Having a vast panorama of the Bosphorus stretching under your feet or sweating out while enjoying the ever-lively Taksim square are experiences not to be missed...

The culinary adventures on offer are also diverse. Moreover, you have everything, simply everything within walking distance. A Kitchenette restaurant downstairs, a Starbucks, airport shuttles, ferries, metro and ALL the attractions of Beyoğlu / Istiklal Avenue...

It may have a reputation of attracting business travellers, but The Marmara Taksim addresses the hard-to-please guest.

Modern luxury, smack dab in the middle of the heartbeat of Istanbul’s most thriving district, with stores and restaurants and entertainment at all hours. This hotel is right on Taksim Square, at the top of Istiklal street. Right outside the door you can hop on the old trolley and ride it down to the Galata Tower for the best sunset views, or explore the pulsing Beyoglu district any hour of the day, then easily get away from the crowds and noise whenever you want. Without a doubt, this hotel offers every amenity with excellence and style – restaurants, a bar, outdoor pool, fitness center, hamam, sauna and more! The room was cushy and lush – with a view looking out over the city. Don’t miss the chocolate shop just inside the front door…luscious!

The Marmara Taksim is a fun and eclectic hotel. Located in the heart of Taksim, literally across the street from the metro, it is the perfect location for anyone who wants to stay in Istanbul's most lively district. When you enter the hotel, you are met with two red escalators up to the main lobby. The lobby has an eclectic mix of furniture from large couches to antique tables covered in a shiny white coating. The rooms are clean with nice views of the busy city center. The beds are very comfortable! The bathroom is also great! It has a large tub, sink, and beday. The staff was friendly and met us with a warm smile.
