Good location but hotel needs some attentionPosted Jul 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed a couple of nights for business. The hotel was average, certainly not value for money. It's in a good location near underground and a big shopping centre. The staff is friendly but not overly helpful. The breakfast is not very eventful and not worth the money. The hotel and its rooms have seen better days, that is the state of repair of the hotel in general could be improved and the room including the bathroom ought to be much cleaner. For instance, the carpet was stained and the bathroom had mould in the shower area.

Extra Credit Card ChargePosted May 26, 2013
The rooms are way smaller than the pictures. The air conditioning directly blows to the beds which makes you freeze even in a very hot day. The hotel charges you in advance for the minibar and returns the money when you check out if you do not use the minibar. The return of the charge to the credit card takes a week!

Lovely hotel, next to good transport linksPosted May 19, 2013
Pros: The bedroom design, so bright & airy, with comfy beds!
Cons: Just an observation, but nothing major to complain about; most of the bar girls couldn't speak any English.
Location: Ideally located, near Sisli metro station & there are bus stop, across the road in front of the hotel
This was my second visit to istanbul and having booked the hotel on a very short notice, I was more than happy with Marmara Sisli. First of all, I have to commend reception manager, Hasan, for being so hospitable and accommodating in allowing a friend of mine to join our party of 3, (I originally made a booking for 3 people & 2 bed rooms) for no extra charge! Not only that, but we were given 2 double bedrooms right next to one another! I know some previous guests have complained about the size of bedrooms and the odd toilet/shower layout, but that didn't bother us at all! Either, we had some of the best bedrooms, which I doubt, but the sink next to the bed and the slide glass door to the toilet were, as far as I'm concerned, a nice design feature. Furthermore, I was pleasantly surprised to find that both rooms had i-phone radio docks, as well as international electrical adapter. Whilst my room wasn't very spacious, I found it airy and the bed was super comfortable. Marmara Sisli isn't in a very touristy part of istanbul, but the transport links make this hotel a much better option in a city, which has rather bad transport links.

Showers and size are ridiculousPosted Dec 5, 2011 on Hotels.com
This hotel seems chic from the outside but we had a few issues with the room. The shower was not built properly so you end up with a nice pool of water when finished. We complained but they told all rooms have this problem and it didn't seem like it was the first time they heard it. Like most Turkish hotels, the key has to be in the wall for electricity so the huge idock clock constantly displayed the wrong time. They switched for us and told us to leave the key but didn't tell us the new one has an alarm that went off at midnight every night. It wouldn't have been a big deal but we were staying for six nights!!! Finally,though we were on a non smoking floor, the rooms next to us were definitely smokers and we could smell it in our room. They offered to move us instead of enforcing the rule. Oh and the central air is automatically set to heat in the winter so we couldn't cool the room other than by opening a noisy window. Other than these things, it was great! ( I am not one to complain, but given achoice, I wouldn't stay there again)

Good if you need to be in Sisli areaPosted Oct 1, 2011
Service was very nice and helpful. Room smallish but comfortable enough, although desk was positively tiny. No problems with wifi. Bed and bed linens comfortable but towels somwhat frayed and scratchy. Decor appealing. Room service menu distincly lacking in Turkish food which was a bit disappointing - I didn't go all the way to Istanbul to eat bagel sandwiches and Caesar salads! On the whole though, a pleasant place to stay if you have business in Sisli area.
