We stayed at Marmara for 3 nights, and had a wonderful experience. It was in a great location, clean, the staff was warm and welcoming and helpful, and the breakfast was a terrific surprise. Amazing selection of jams (fig, strawberry, rose, guava, blackberry) and various fillings for crepes; olives, tomatoes, dukes, bread, fresh o.j. and pomegranate juice, and more. Our...

The Marmara Guesthouse in Sultanahmet, is a friendly, cozy, family run place with a great location for visiting the sites of the old city.

The location is very close to most famous attractions in Istanbul, such as Aya Sophya, blue Mosque..etc. I stayed in a standard single room, the room decoration is stylish, and it's cleaned everyday. I knew little about Istanbul, but here they provide a lot of trip advises and some useful services such as airport shuttle, pick up to city trips...

This place is clean, affordable, and very well situated for the sights in the old city. The breakfast on the roof garden really is lovely, though it gets crowded quick so go early for a table with a good view. The rooms are are charming and the staff friendly and helpful; restaurants in this area are touristy, however...

I spent five nights at Marmara Guesthouse, where I had reserved a double room for New Year's Eve 2014/2015. The room was nice, with big bathroom, large comfortable bed and a big wardrobe where to put clothes, shoes and jackets. The room was cleaned and the towels changed every day. Nice location (ten minutes by walk to Hagia Sophia, the...

Noisy ground floor rooms, I was awoken in the middle of the night due to guests coming in and out of the main door as all guests were given a main door key in addition to your room key.

Picked Marmara guesthouse because of Lonely Planet reviews. First night in downstairs room was a nightmare being woken up several times by loud noises, people talking, etc. would not refund our money for second night, but moved us to another room for third night. That room was cold! Not worth the money.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
