                Location

                The cleaning of the room wasn't so good and also the towels in the bathroom were old and worn out!

                The location is good, hotel itself comfortable and nice. 2 minutes walk from the busy shopping street and walking distance from Galata tower.

                The check-in timing (3 pm) is late in general, particularly if you arrival is early morning, plus the hotel was fully booked and we were waiting for the room for nearly 2 hours... But the hotel staff was really friendly trying to easy the waiting and a complementary fruit basket was sent, which was very nice.

                The location is perfect especially that in few steps you reach the metro which is really easy to get anywhere you like. And plus the staff were really kind and very helpful.

                The hotel was under renovation, so it was somehow noisy even after midnight and we had to change our room to get some sleep. And the towels were really old and not suitable to be used in 5 stars Hotel.

                The location was very good and easy to reach several parts of the city.

                The rooms are already old and the wellness part of the hotel is very poor. I expected much more from this hotel. For me it is not a 5 star hotel, maybe a 4 start hotel.

                The hotel location is perfect. Staff are very friendly and really as the hotel quote says "your wish is our command" . Safe and good for business and leisure trips.

                The hotel rooms requires colour change to be more comfy. The shower should be a bit bigger to fit a tall or big guys as it's tight a bit. Other than these it is a wonderful hotel.

                Location is perfect for shopping and city tour

                Rooms are small

                The location was perfect for those would like to walk even during the night as that area always have it is vistors and you can start from there as a point to travel using all kind of transpration like metro then tram if you like or by boat as kapats port are not far from that hotel

                The point that I would like to focus on it as I stayed in so many hotels beofre in istanbul that the bathroom furnture are so old and it need to be renewed ,

                Only its location and the partial view of the Bosporus I got from my city view room.

                The majority of the Marmara Taksim staff working in the reception and conceirge need a complete change in their attitudes or they should be replaced. Many of them make you feel as if they are doing you a favor by just talking to you .. or as if they own the place. Many of them give you a fake superficial smile. I strongly suggest to the Hotel Manager that they send some of their staff for attitude training in other countries such as 5-star hotels in Korea or the far east in general. Over there, we who travel and see different hotels experience geniune hospitality, genuine smiles, genuine desire to assist and to welcome. The Marmara Taksim is the opposite.

                Rooms were very small and noisy, food bit pricey and not a good value.

                The Consierge team was excellemt - quick and efficient!

                Room cleaning needs improvement. The Wi-Fi is quite weak on some floors. Breakfast is extremely expensive compared to the similar level hotels in Turkey
