I stayed at the Marmara hotel in Istanbul- a very nice luxury 5-star-hotel with a perfect location - you only had to walk out its door and you are at the famous Taksim square in the middle of a crowd and the full of life Istanbul. Built on the highest of Istanbul's “Seven Hills”, The Marmara Taksim offers magnificent views of the Bosphorus and Seraglio Point stretching all the way to the Sea of Marmara. The Marmara Taksim has 376 deluxe rooms and 82 The Marmara Club rooms with panoramic views of the Bosphorus, Goldern Horn and the city of the Istanbul (very clean and well furnished rooms of good size with great view especially if you are on the upper floors). I did like the breakfast although it wasn't something special though. Unfortunately, I didn't have any free time to check the swimming pool.
The Marmara Taksim is 25 kilometers ( miles) from Istanbul Ataturk International Airport ( IST) and 50 kilometers from Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW) Taxis are available next to the hotel. A metro station is right across the street.
I will include several pictures so you can see for yourself the hotel, the room where i stayed and the marvelous Taksim square.
One useful advice - be careful with the hot water in the bathroom - it's REALLY hot!
