The Marmara Park Avenue is like something out of Gossip Girl.
When we enter the foyer - which we almost miss because it looks like a five-star bar and restaurant - we find two grand, art-like desks where we’re met by a beautiful concierge who briefly tells us where everything we need to find is and then sets us on our merry way.
This hotel is about style, simplistic in design but pure luxury.
It feels a little more like staying in an art gallery than in a hotel with a fireplace burning to our right and on a beautiful, thick stand sits a small Zen garden, the sand freshly brushed into a configuration by another guest.
The rooms are small but chic, with a kitchenette and coffee machine.
