My room was small but so comfortable, had a small fridge and even had a balcony. The view was lovely, too.
I kept the balcony door open when I slept so call to prayers was a bit loud but didn't bother me. There is a/c, though.
The breakfast buffet is wonderful. Great restaurant and other handy stores right on the block.
Hotel is close to metro.
The staff were outstanding.
I highly recommend this hotel
I arrived at the hotel between 2 and 3, upon checking in i was told that there was something wrong with my room and i would have to stay in another hotel for the night. I was taken down the street to another hotel (i can't remember the name). I was meeting freinds at the Marmaray Hotel so i came back afew times that day. I asked multiple times what was wrong with the room and i was just told that there was something wrong. The next morning i ate breakfast at the Marmaray and asked if i can move into my room at the Marmaray, i was told that i could. After i moved my bags into the room at the Marmaray i returned to the lobby and was told my the man working at the desk that there was a problem. He said that the room had not paid for the room and that he would give me an invoice and i could pay cash. I told him that i paid for everything through expedia and that he could contact them if there was a problem. luckily that was the last i heard about this. Other than that no issues.
Location is very easy, close to Aksaray Metro station. Breakfast was very good.
Unfortunately, the mosque is very close and you can get crazy from the noise from it early in the morning.
Another negative is the weak and slow Wi-Fi in the room. 99% of the room had almost no coverage and connection was very bad, tried with 2 devices. In the lobby Wi-Fi was OK, though. Those guys have to change the position of the routers. Note this if you are a business traveller.
The single room was clean, although a little small. For 1 night stay is fine. The bathroom needs a little renovation.
Pricewise, the hotel is good, it is suitable for business travellers.
