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.

The rooms were very small. Just teeny tiny rooms. Breakfast was just ordinary. Location was good. Bathroom and toilet were somewhat clean. Staffs were friendly and helpful. The price was slightly higher than the hotel level.

Good location, good price, quiet stay

The hotel has a very beautiful style, quiet neighborhood, , clean, the staff are very kind,
The hotel rooms has a great view specially at night (9th floor). a great place for business people and any others who are looking for a quiet corner (like me).

The hotel located close to mall cevahir and metro. supermarket, restaurants and coffees are around.

But i have to notes; the Air-conditioner is directed to beds and there is no way to change its direction, i had coverd my head every night wich is not so comfortable!! 😊

And YES i'll be back again soon👍

hotel is poorly designed, you would have a hard time finding the reception as it is located somewhere in the back. rooms are too small and need some serious renovation.
staff are very friendly and professional
