    Clean and tidy rooms. Unfortunately we encountered pretty miserable weather during our stay in Istanbul. But the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made our stay amazing!!!!

    A home away from home! True to tradition in decor, breakfast and warm welcome! Hanam makes sure everything for breakfast is on point and Elif is a terrific hostess that will help you define the best personalized itinerary and will give you fabulous insider tips. Yusuf and all the guys from the reception are genuinely helpful and will arrange any reservation or booking you might need. The location couldn’t be better, just a short walking distance from the Blue Mosque and Haya Sophia!

    The location was perfect - just a short walk to the Hagia Sohpia and Blue Mosque, and just beyond that was a light rail station that could take you to most other neighborhoods - the room was comfortable, the staff friendly, and the place over all was clean and tidy. And the breakfast was phenomenal! I have low expectations for included breakfasts but this one was absolutely delicious, and the view could not be beat. Note that there are lots of stairs in the building.

    Exceptional stay, highly recommend. Located very close to major attractions but in a quiet side street off of a pleasant boulevard of restaurants and shops. Very walkable to transit. Room is very clean and well appointed. Rooftop dining area provides stunning views of the Bosphorous and the breakfast is to die for. We loved it. Would stay again.

    I stayed longer than most, 9 days. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms was cleaned quickly, well and early in the morning. Security is good with cameras and a live attendant 24/7. Amenaties are sparse, but thats ok, I wasnt going all the way to Istanbul to hang out in a hotel room. The biggest knock Id give is the breakfast was not fantastic. Its good and gets you started, but does not compare with all the amazing restaurants in the city. I would not hesitate to recommend Marmara.
