We had a very comfortable stay at The Marmara Guesthouse. The staff were brilliant and the location perfect for all the tourist attractions in Old Town and restaurants. Especially liked the roof top terrace

Great place, friendly and helpful staff. Only wished transport to and from airport was more reasonable price.


My mom, sister and I stayed at Marmara guesthousefor three nights over Easter and would highly recommend it. the staff was very helpful and welcoming from the start, the location superb, rooms spacious and breakfast delectable. Most of Istanbul's top historical sites are a stone's throw away from the Guesthouse, however as it is situated in a quiet little street there are very few issues with noise.

Great hostel in the centre of Istanbul, perfectly located, close to Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Bosphorus. Very clean and safe. Nice room and bedroom. But above all very nice staff, helpful and smiling. They even prepared us sandwiches because we were leaving too early the last day to have breakfast ! Very very good breakfast, taken every day on the rooftop terrace. Huge choice, delicious homemade jams and crepes ! We definitely recommand this hostel !


Clean hostel with friendly staff and a great breakfast with lots of choice. Great location too and good views.


Perfect place for family. Room was bit small but except for that everything was just perfect. super friendly steff and owner, best breakfast in Turkey, clean and good facilities, and so on.
