Woman owner was very kind. Male staff also gave me devotedly corresponding to the consultation of Cappadocia tour.Speaking greed, I hope room facilities are more developed. The view from the rooftop terrace was the best.It became the memories of very great meaning journey.

Our family of four recently visited Istanbul and stayed at Marmara Guesthouse for 3 nights. The guesthouse is in a great location in the Old Town of Sultanhamet with a myriad of restaurants around, close to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and the Tram. The guesthouse is very quaint with narrow staircases to each level and to the... More

We had a wonderful time in Istanbul staying at the Marmara Guesthouse. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated and the location is so central that all the main sites are within 5 mins walking distance. The breakfast is absolutely splendid with a nice mix of choice and home-made flavours. I would definitely recommend... More

My friends and I stayed at Marmara Guesthouse for 8 nights and had an amazing time. The rooms are beautiful, the staff is extremely welcoming and helpful, and the breakfast is amazing. They even gave us a larger room for no extra cost and helped us plan a day trip to Ephesus (they also have a travel agency). They can... More

This was a great place to stay in a very convenient location. The staff was helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable and well furnished, and the rooftop patio offered excellent views and a peaceful place to relax. The breakfast, which was included, was also very nice. In addition, the price was very reasonable. I have no complaints... More

A bit difficult to find at first specially if you're arriving at night, but by asking around me managed to get there. Location and breakfast is definitely a plus! If I ever find myself in Istanbul again I would definitely stay here.

I'm not sure I have much new to say, but I join my fellow travelers in raving about this place. Perfect location for visiting the major sites. Lovely breakfast on the rooftop terrace. The staff is super helpful and willing to recommend things.

My husband and I stayed at Marmara Guesthouse on our honeymoon to Turkey. For a reasonable rate, we were able to schedule a shuttle from the airport. The staff were incredibly helpful and kind.

We spent 5 nights at marmara guesthouse. Its was a lovely start to our holiday. We had 11 family members staying in the guesthouse and the roof top terrace was great to meet up and relax in between exploring the city. The staff were very welcoming and organised our private Gallipoli trip and answered any questions we had. Breakfast up... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
