Nice hotel

5 minute walk to the tram and metro station which Can take you anywhere in the city. Also 5 minute walk to yenkipi ferry boat where you can take a day trip to bursa. Plenty of choices for food within walking distance. Very clean and comfortable. If you are a family you can just pick a taxi outside the hotel to anywhere. All taxis use taximeter for fare which will be very cheap if you are a group.

The worst hotel I have ever stayed in!!

The hotel is just rubbish. I don't understand how it is a 4 star hotel without a proper working shower, no adaptors in reception, no maps of the city (apart from those that you have to BUY for €2!!!) and NO iron even !! Every time we asked for something (including an iron) they told us to go and buy it from outside. The staff were so rude and unfriendly. The breakfast was HORRIBLE. If you are not into Turkish food then expect to eat bread and hard boiled eggs only. Even the juice and tea and coffee were machine made! There were no tea bags available in the hotel at all. It seemed like a hotel from hell. Do yourself a favour and DONT STAY THERE. It is genuinely rubbish. I have travelled a lot all over the world and never stayed anywhere worse than this.

Pros: Very beautiful interior. 10 minute walk from the streetcar. Lots of places to eat nearby.
Cons: It is not in the best area. I was not concerned about getting robbed but it was not where i thought the hotel would be. The breakfast was odd.
Location: Feels like a low end / poor area. 10 minute walk from the streetcar though.
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.

An executive front facade. Looks nice. Check in very easy, allowed check in around 7 AM ( I arrived very early in Istanbul). Had my breakfast, and the room was ready. NOT noisy at all, even though close to a main road. Located in a back quiet street. Very close to all historic places. I walked most of the time. Tram was close by, and very easy to use (ask How?). I will go back there again. The Hotel staff were very helpful with my phone/camera chargers (had lost them before arrived). I asked and they arranged a driver to pick me up and drop me at the airport, cost was nominal, and the driver was friendly, the car was clean and well kept.

I would not recommend this hotel to anybody

It was our second time staying in Istanbul and we were kind of familiar with the area. The Marmaray Hotel is situated in the cargo area and it's very loud and noisy all the time. The staff was very nice and friendly, but the manager/owner is very pushy and rude. Please note,that there is no drinking water or tea/coffee pot in the room and if you'll ask for a hot water to make a tea or coffee, he will charge you - $4. Also, this hotel is little bit far from the all tourist attractions. I would not recommend this hotel.

Für ein Stadthotel okay

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Pros: Lage .gute Erreichbarkeit zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten und zur U-Bahn. Frühstück okay.
Cons: Die Überbelegung überprüfen.
Check in war enttäuschend. Anscheinend war das Hotel überbucht und wir mußten für eine Nacht in ein Hotel gegenüber, welches schlechter war.Man versprach uns am nächsten Tag nach dem Frühstück die Zimmer im Mamaray beziehen zu können. Dieses wollten wir nach dem Frühstück auch tun, man gab uns die Zimmerkarte mit der Mitteilung wir könnten noch nicht auf die Zimmer. Die koffer sollten wir in der Lobby lassen und sie würden dann auf die Zimmer gebracht werden. Als wir am Späten Nachmittag ins Hotel kamen , waren die Koffeer nicht auf den Zimmern und wir mußten sie selber aus der Lobby holen.

Absolut in Ordnung

Posted Jun 3, 2014
Pros: Sehr ruhig, man spürt andere Gäste kaum.
Cons: Minipaar füllen, Jacuzzi in Betrieb nehmen. Bei Massagen nicht weitere Zusatzangebote ohne klaren Preis anbieten. Rezeptionsherzlichkeit
Location: Toll für Sightseeing (Bl. Moschee, Hagia Sophia). Straßenbahn in 10 Gehminuten, Flughafen-Metro in 15. Für Nightlife (Istiklal) andere Bezirke besser
Städtetrip von Freunden im Dreibettzimmer. Raum mit angenehmer Größe. Geräumige Dusche, bequeme Betten, Safe. Frühstück in Ordnung, aber nicht mit einem 4-Stern-Hotel in Österreich/Deutschland vergleichbar (wenig Wurst, viele Aufstriche,...).
