I had no particular problems with the Marmara, but it just isn't worth the money

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, close to everything
Cons: Poor breakfast, just not a value
You can't beat the Marmara for location. That said, there are a few other hotels with as great or almost as great a location. A previous reviewer complained about the noise on the city side. I am a city-dweller and didn't find that a particular problem. Another previous reviewer mentioned that he had to chase the waiter down in the morning just to get a cup of coffee. This is true. The real issue is that nothing at the Marmara is really worth what you pay for it. The breakfast is 38 Euros...the bread is good, but it's just a breakfast. The massages were mediocre yet pricey; i had also reflexology. That, too was mediocre and relatively expensive. The bar is over priced; Laudry was prohibitive but this is the case in many hotels. The staff competency for the most part is adequate. I must say they emit a sense of not particularly enjoying their jobs, but not to the extent of taking it out on the client. They just don't seem to be too happy working at the Marmara...So, again, it's hard to be a 5 start hotel when the staff is not 110 percent at their job. Bottom line: if you don't care about getting your money's worth, you won't be bothered by the value; the views are lovely; the location is unbeatable; and I had not real problems...

This hotel impressed me

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Choosing Marmara Hotel it was one of my best travel decision, hotel staff very nice and very helpful, very clean room with a nice view on Taksim Square. I and my wife were with another couple and they put us in a kind of separate area made of two rooms, excellent. 100% satisfaction.

Marmara Hotel

Great location, staff are nice but not all speak proper English. Our room had a great view but the AC was not working properly.
