Overview

Affordable design hotel with ’50s-style decor, skyline views and a late night lounge bar

The Lowdown

Located in Mecidiyeköy, Istanbul’s business district, the Marmara Sisli is a contemporary crash pad with panoramic views of the skyline. The designer decor combines parquet flooring, slate gray walls and ’50s-style furniture including funky teal sofas and retro light fixtures. Kick back in the stylish lobby-level lounge bar, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner — and drinks until 2 a.m. The rooms all feature intricately embossed headboards, chunky wooden desks, flat-screen TVs, free WiFi and petite bathrooms with butcher’s shop–style tiles. The property is a bit removed from Istanbul’s main sights, but it’s a five-minute walk from the Sisli metro station, for trips to Taksim Square (two stops), and is a 20-minute taxi ride from the Grand Bazaar. The neighborhood is full of restaurants and bars, and the mammoth Cevahir mall is a five-minute walk away.

In the Area

Explore the cobblestone streets and ivy-encrusted cafés of bohemian Cihangir, where Datli Maya serves generous portions of traditional Turkish dishes. The Yeni Lokanta offers a more upscale but no less traditional dining experience, while the hip nightspot Smyrna serves some of Istanbul’s best cocktails. For a more traditional tourist experience, head to the bars and eateries around Taksim’s magnificent 16th-century Galata Tower. The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the Grand Bazaar are all must-dos, but when you tire of the tourist hordes escape to the city’s quieter western district. From the Sultanahmet area a short taxi ride takes you to the Chora Museum, a small fifth-century chapel adorned with one of the world’s best-preserved collections of Byzantine mosaics. Winding through the narrow aisles of the spice market, you’ll find stalls piled high with curry, cinnamon, figs, dried apricots and Turkish candies. Bargaining is discouraged, but the prices are already low.
