10/10 Exceptional

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.

Turkish Holiday
Guesthouse is in a great location to walk to attractions in Sultanamet, including the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and restaurants. Guesthouse is clean and comfortable, but rooms are quite small. Staff are helpful, and there’s a lending library of tour and other books. There’s a truly excellent breakfast, eaten with views over the Bosphorus.

Great little guest house. Not sure if other rooms but mine had a double bed which took up most of the room (a bit cramped). Also pillows were unusable (way too thick) but some folks like that. Breakfast was a very diverse and wonderful spread snd staff were friendly which more than made up for the room size!!

10/10 Exceptional

We loved the Marmara Guesthouse! In a fantastic location, this hotel is near everything you want to see in Sultanahmet and is very close to a tram station and ferries to go anywhere else in Istanbul. The staff were extremely kind and helpful, and the breakfasts were delicious! The only con was the wifi was a little spotty at times, but fairly consistent.
