Very friendly staff. Terrace had a sea view and was sunny. Only a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque. Lots of restaurants around. Close to the tramway station Sultanahmet. Great guest house to stay if you are visiting Istanbul for the first time.

We had a wonderful stay at Marmara Guesthouse. We got two rooms, and each suited our needs perfectly. The morning breakfast on the rooftop patio was an excellent way to start each morning. The staff was also extremely helpful in acquainting us with the city and arranging transportation to the airport. We loved our stay and would definitely consider staying at Marmara Guesthouse again!

Marmara Guesthouse is in a great location - a five minute walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the Palace. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is great, especially the home made jams. The guy who works on reception during the day is very helpful and friendly. We booked again to stay at the end of our trip to Turkey. There was a slight hiccup with the booking but I would definitely recommend staying here!
