Marmara Taksim Hotel,
right in Taksim
Square, is a modern high-rise
offering splendid views of Istanbul's
City, Beyoğlu and
the Bosphorus from
its upper floors.
Its rooftop restaurant, Reika, has what may be the most spectacular panoramic views in Istanbul:
View from Reika Restaurant—almost like from a helicopter!
and conventions often fill its 432
guest rooms. If you like a very
central location in the midst
of the bustle, this is it.
you'd like to be out of the bustle
but still only one long block away
from Taksim, look at the Divan
Istanbul Hotel, the Ceylan
Intercontinental, the Grand
Hyatt, and the Istanbul
Hilton. Here's a map:

Marmara Taksim is a sister hotel
Marmara Pera, a smaller
modern high-rise hotel about a mile
away across the street from
the venerable Pera
Palace Hotel in the Tepebaşı
district of Beyoğlu.
It's easy to reserve
a value-priced private airport
transfer to the hotel
in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle
that costs only slightly more than
and significantly less than two taxis
(which you'll need if you have 4+
people and/or lots of luggage), and far
more pleasant, comfortable and trustworthy. More...
