As always personal and charming

Marmara er et svært hyggelig og sjarmerende hotell med god mat og service. Vi har bodd der flere ganger før og kommer alltid tilbake. Litt stille denne gangen, utenom sesong, så ikke mange gjester, men personlig service så det holder!

High style

Posted Oct 26, 2015 on Hotels
The Marmara is beautifully situated at the top of the hill above the town of Bodrum, With wonderful views of the town and sea. The public areas are all lovely combining contemporary design with classic cultural touches. As expected, being part of the Small Luxury Hotels program, prices fir food, beverages and spa were high. Even considering this, I felt the prices were significantly higher than warranted for this region.

Great views

5 Stats in all aspects. Breakfast can be improved. Music played by the pool until well past midnight making falling asleep difficult.

Hotel mit tollem Blick

Posted Oct 19, 2015
Pros: Die Lage und der Baustil in kleinen Einheiten. Zimmer sehr geräumig und gut ausgestattet.
Cons: Rücktransfer vom Strand auch um 17 Uhr
Location: Gute Nähe zum Zentrum
Hotel sehr zu empfehlen. Stadtnähe, gigantischer Ausblick, Personal sehr freundlich und bemüht. Für Schwimmer ein extra "Olympicpool". Leider dauert der Strandtransfer etwas lange, aber der Strand ist ok.

Nice, but not wonderful.

Posted Oct 15, 2015 on Hotels
We only spent one night in Bodrum and did not get a sense of the other options. the Hotel had a great gym and nice views. Our room had an ocean view but that view was over the road way and we heard motor bikes all night and the local dogs barking. Room was sufficient but small. Breakfast was nice, dinner on the expensive side.

This hotel may have been great a few years ago but it desperately needs updating. The room isn't very luxurious for the price. The bathrooms are just awful - orange Formica counter tops against pink and mauve tile, which was filthy. Our room was not cleaned out entire stay even though we asked for it to be multiple times. I'd love to upload pictures of the patio furniture - there are no pillows, so you're just sitting on metal slats covered in a piece of cotton. I've never seen something so strange. The staff is friendly enough, just not effective. Getting someone to bring you something at breakfast or at the pool is a miserable experience. Beautifully situated property, so I hope that they take some time to figure it out. I would absolutely not return.

Good Location

Posted Oct 10, 2015
Pros: Location, service
Cons: Need more lights in the closet. Their private "beach" - Flamm, dosent have any beach at all.
Location: Go to the city center
The hotel is big and is quite a maze to navigate. The best thing is it location - less than a 10 minute cab drive to the City center. Breakfast was decent - cereals, eggs made to order etc. and service was very good. Their pvt beach - FLAMM - doesnt have any beach at all !!!! But it does have very nice loungers, a great bar, a decent restaurant and outstanding service

Beautiful!

Posted Oct 5, 2015
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Marmara Bodrum in early Oct 2015. I can't say enough about how welcoming and polite the staff are. Gorgeous views! Far from the beach though so don't expect much in that department. The walk to town and back is steep but manageable especially considering how good the food is!

Turkish Treat

Posted Oct 5, 2015 on Hotels
We only stayed one night but after arriving late into Bodrum airport it was easy and straightforward to drive to The Marmara taking around 30 mins. The panoramic view elavated over Bodrum was spectacular whilst enjoying one of the best buffet breakfast we have ever had! The staff are very friendly and attentive. We loved the hotel interiors with a special mention to some very quirky artwork! It's a 20 mins walk down to town, but a little challanging on the return uphill..definitely worth a look as has amazing history and good shops and restaurants around the Marina area.

Un lindo lugar para cumplir años!

Posted Oct 4, 2015 on Hotels
Sólo pasamos una noche en el hotel después de pasear en goleta, justo era mi cumpleaños y fue el día del diluvio en Bodrum, así que mi festejo fue en el mismo hotel, con una linda torta de cumpleaños, el restaurante es muy bueno y el hotel tiene unas vistas magníficas además de un servicio que te lleva a la playa. La habitación era lindísima con vistas a un jardín y con reposeras para descansar...
