If there was a rating between "average" and "very good," that's what I would give the Mari Time. It was completely adequate for our needs, but nothing more than that. The good: - you can't beat the location - less than a five-minute walk to the Blue Mosque/Aya Sofia square. - staff is nice, speaks good English, and was very... More

Okay folks, lets not focus so much on the friendliness of the staff and instead focus on the hotel itself. The location is excellent, but the hotel is not. Rooms are extremely small, enough room for unopened suitcases and dreary at best. No elevator. My room wreaked of cigarettes. Our sheets had large stains and there was one working outlet... More

Very helpful, friendly staff. Served us Turkish tea & coffee while we were waiting for our airport transfer. Good breakfast. Many restaurants as well as Blue Mosque withing 5 - 10 minute walk. Good value for the money. Rooftop terrace not open during our stay & is open only during warmer months.

The Hotel is clean and rooms are good. Very reasonably priced for the location (stone throw distance from attractions and city). The staff is very very helpful, humble and treats you well. There is someone at the reception all day and night to assist you with everything from suggestions, booking and any query. They are very friendly! Would definitely recommend...

I completelly reccomend this hotel! Located less than 10 minutes walking from the Blue Mosque, in a quiet street with a very friendly staff always ready to help you! The rooms are new, the breakfast is very good. And is so cheap!

Situated about 10 mins walk from the blue mosque, be prepared to be woken up with the call for prayer that is so loud it's practically in your room. But a great location in the old part of town is worth it. The hotel is right in the middle of the old quarter and is easily walkable to all of... More

this hotel is a lovely little place with extremely friendly and helpful staff nothing is too much trouble, they are also quick to answer emails too. It's a ten minute walk to the blue mosque and the tram is close by to get to Galata tower. Do note that if you are staying anywhere in the old side of Istanbul... More

This is my second stay at Mari Time. Again, it was wonderful. The bed is comfortable, the staff is kind and friendly. The location is great. I am currently living in Turkey and will continue to stay here whenever I visit Istanbul. The price was a little high due to the national holiday.
