We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location is great (next to the metro and marmara station). The staff here is amazing and very helpful. This hotel deserves a 5/5 based on customer service, location and amenities. The breakfast is great as well.
Thank you marmara staff :)
The hotel was in an excellent location in the Fatih district, very close to the local attractions. Lots of restaurants nearby.
I found the check-in really easy and smooth and the staff to be helpful.
Breakfast was really good, with a variety of foods to choose from.
The only displeasing thing about the hotel were 2 particular incidents:
1st - I asked one of the waiting staff to bring me turkish coffee to my room. He spoke in turkish, and eventually he lashed out on me in turkish. Perhaps he couldnt understand, but he was extremely rude. During checkout, the staff tried overcharging me by saying I had more than what I really had.
2nd - I was overcharged at a price of 81 TL for the following items from the minibar.:
Coke can x1
2 choclate bars
Turkish coffee x2
Nescafe sachets x1
Instead of being charged 57TL, had I not questioned the amount charged, I would have blindly paid 81TL (£21). Which is quite alot...
Other than this, the hotel was a really nice stay. Would probabyl stay somewhere else next time, but would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.
A very good deal on this hotel! Rooms are very sparse in terms of decorations but are simple and serve well for the purpose of relaxing! We had a queen bed and single bed room for us and our son, however we would have preferred a bigger room for more space. The breakfast is traditional turkish breakfast with a variety of cold cuts, jams, breads and pastas and rice dishes. Downside was the coffee was just too strong and bitter for our tastes. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. Each one was able to answer our questions of how to get somewhere or where to find something. Before our trip we emailed the hotel to arrange our airport transfer and requested the same going back. Emails were promptly replied to and transfers went smoothly. There were a couple short power outages during our 2 week stay, which is common for the area, but very short as to not be a hassle. The great thing about this hotel is that it is right next to many restaurants/cafes and many clothing stores! Not so much souvenirs, but women's, men's and kids clothing and shoes. Historia Mall is also a short walk away from the hotel (with stores like zara, Mango, starbucks and KFC). There is also an ATM across the street, and along Fazi Pasa street many other ATMs that exchange currency as well. The only warning is that the beggars are very aggressive in this area which took some getting used to! I would suggest becoming familiar with the tram to access the tourist spots about a 15 min walk away.
It was such a wonderful first time family holiday in Istanbul.The hotel was beautiful and the service was excellent,I honestly recommend people should visit Turkey becauuse its a lovely country with great attractions and places to visit.The food is wonderful,sights are amazing and shopping is affordable.The hotel was 20 minutes away from blue mosque,grand bazar and other sites.There are several burger king and Mcdonalds restaurant in Istanbul.I hope my comments will be a good help to the viwers.
Aksaray is an easy metro ride from Istanbul's Ataturk Airport. The neighborhood borders the Old City, the area formerly called Constantinople and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985. A short tram ride from Aksaray takes visitors past ancient city walls to all the famous sites of Turkey's largest city, including the Blue Mosque, Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia, and the Grand Bazaar.
