I really enjoyed my 8-day stay. The location is fantastically located while being nice and quiet. It is just a short walk to the tram and lots of the main interesting things to see in Sultanahmet. The breakfast was really outstanding--I really looked forward to eating each morning! Elif, Yagmur and the rest of the staff all went out of... More

Marmara Guesthouse is a great place to stay. They offer a wonderful breakfast, have a great location, a beautiful view from the terrace, and very friendly and helpful staff. I highly recommend this hotel when you're traveling in Istanbul!

I stayed at this establishment for 4 nights and was delighted with the service. The owner and the staff were delightful and always very curtious and willing to help. The location is ideal as we are a few minutes away from the Blue Mosque, topkapi palace and the Hagia Sophia Museum. Although we are only a few minutes away from... More

The best location, the best staff, a more then average excellent breakfast, free tea and coffee all day, the owners are just so wonderful and offer lots of recommendations like day trips, choices of Hamam to go. Everything is so close, tram, museums, restaurants, the roof terrace offers a great view on the Bosphore and of the April full moon.... More

Enjoyed our stay here. Excellent breakfast comes with the room, great view of the Bosporus. Tea and coffee all day gratis. Excellent help from this 2 generation family run guest house. Not 5 stars because of the smaller rooms, and the street or courtyard can be noises at night with the windows opened, as we enjoy. The double pane windows... More

The place is really quiet, because it´s situated in a smaller street and not in the street with all the restaurants, although it´s in the very center of the old city of Istanbul. The rooms are very clean with very good beds, the bathrooms are modern, breakfast is very good. You can sit outside with view on the Bosporus and... More

Amazing location, especially for first time visitors, so near the main sites and a tram line to move on to other neighborhoods. That also made it feel very safe for walking at night, as there was a lot of street life. The staff and owners were very hospitable and flexible, serving up a wonderful breakfast spread in a very cheery,... More

Great location, welcoming and informative proprietors, comfortable rooms and delicious breakfast. Warmth of the place encouraged us to converse with fellow travelers and share in our experiences. Only downside is if you are out of shape as lots of stairs to deal with. We would definitely stay there again if we should ever revisit Turkey.

The hotel itself is a somewhat cramped warren but one forgets that because the very accommodating staff take time and trouble to sort out problems or just chat. The clientele is international which adds flavour to an already good breakfast. The owner's homemade fig jam is a joy.

In a city of millions, so good to have a place like Marmara Guest House to come back to. Slip and all staff were friendly, with excellent advice. The facilities were very comfortable and the location to major sites of significance was fantastic. Delicious breakfasts set us up for each day of activities. Would not hesitate to return to this...
