First time in Istanbul
Very helpful staff, always available. We had the room on top floor with "sea view" and it was wonderful. Its on a quieter side street but still close to all the top sights in Sultanamet.

Cute little hotel
Beautiful breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Easy walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and Topkapi Palace. The staff was friendly, helpful, and always available. The bed was very comfortable but small room. We loved it.

Amazing hotel, 100%. Recommend it.
The hotel is fantastic, located very near the blue mosque and other important historic sites. It has two fantastic roof terraces one enclosed where you have breakfast and one where you can sit outside and have an amazing view of the Bosphorous and dolphins playing in the water every morning. You really can’t ask for more. The breakfast is great and the staff are very attentive. The rooms are lovely and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anybody. My only criticism which isn’t related to the hotel is it the street behind the hotel is full of restaurants where people hassle you a lot and a number of people try to rip us off so beware.

We loved our stay at Marmara! It was super close to all the Old City attractions but off on a small, quieter side street. Although our room was small, the terrace was a nice place to hang out/relax, and the staff was extremely kind and helpful. The breakfast spread every morning was great, too!

10/10 Exceptional

Staff were so helpful, helped me book last minute tours and gave good suggestions. Very clean and in a excellent location in a quiet area of the old town, so easy to walk to the major attractions. Has a safe in the room and housekeeping daily. Breakfast is buffet style, typical sweets/cold salads. Has tea/coffee on terrace in evening. Terrace view of Bosphorous is lovely. Let them arrange airport transfers for you - it really is a good time/price value.

Clean room, perfect if it’s only for sleeping
Room was clean / comfortable. Very cramped though! Felt abit claustrophobic in there. Room was literally in the reception area. Location was perfect

Great Place To Stay in Istanbul
This guesthouse is very close to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace etc. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is wonderful and we enjoyed the views from the Terrace which is the dining room. There are a lot of stairs but the room was comfortable and we thoroughly recommend this guesthouse.
