Stayed for three nights after a stay at Saruhan Hotel. The location of Marmara Guesthouse is definitely the biggest draw card. A five minute walk to Aya Sofya and Blue Mosque with a huge variety of restaurants just around the corner. Our favourite place to eat was on the first corner you come to on the way up to the main Sultanhmet area / Topkapi Palace (sorry I can't remember the name of it), the food was amazing, I had the chicken casserole and our waiter was fantastic! The staff at Marmara are very helpful and friendly. The rooms were always clean and their in-house dry-cleaning service was great value. The terrace had a beautiful view and was a great place to sit and relax. The buffet breakfast offered a wide variety of fruits, jams and cereals and bread, everything I ate was fresh and tasty. The not so good aspects of the guesthouse is the lack of a lift, the rooms are nice but fairly small and just standard furnishings and whilst staff are friendly, the lack of English could sometimes prove to be a problem.
Overall it was a good place to stay with easy access to most sights and services that you could need.
