We recently stayed at Marmara Guesthouse for 3 nights, and our only regret was not staying longer. Our flight in from Milan was delayed and as a result we did not arrive until well after midnight. The friendly host, Elif, was there happily waiting for us to show us to our room. 

Our room was basic and fairly small, but very clean. We had a room on the ground floor (actually a little below ground), which kept the room cool most of the time. The air-conditioning worked well when required. 

But the most positive aspect of staying at this townhouse was undoubtedly Elif. Always smiling and more than happy to assist with any travel enquiries. She arranged a wonderful local Turkish bath for us, and organised our trip to Gallipoli with some minor modifications so that we could continue on to Canakkale - in addition to any other enquiries we had. 

The rooftop terrace is a wonderful place to enjoy a cold beer, and within walking distance of all major sights in Istanbul,  I cannot recommend the budget conscious traveller this place more highly.

Marmara Guesthouse has a great location on a quiet street, excellent hosts, and a tasty, filling breakfast. The room was small (cosy) but clean and quiet. It's very convenient to sights (Blue Mosque, etc) and tram (to Grand Bazaar, .ferries, etc.). We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our 6-week travels in Turkey, and really felt welcomed and at home. There's no lift, so our room near the top was "good exercise". We'd happily stay here again.

i stayed here for a week from 25apr til 2may 2012. i really enjoyed my stay. everything was very clean. the free daily buffet breakfast was great, with a wide range of fruits and jams. the open rooftop terrace has an amazing view. the owners of the guesthouse, elif and her parents have been very welcoming and nice during our stay. elif was very helpful when we asked her for directions to major tourist attractions and also recommended us on which places to go. she also helped us booked our one day tour to izmir for the ephesus tour, and also the airplane tickets. i would also like to thank her for inviting us to her brother's wedding. i've never been to a turkish wedding and it was a really nice experience. i will definitely stay at marmara guesthouse again. the price was affordable and its location is perfect, within walking distance to the major tourist hotspots. and there are also cafes and restaurants nearby as well. overall, it was a really great stay at marmara guesthouse, istanbul is indeed amazing, their people are very friendly. once again, i would like to thank elif and her family for the enjoyable stay.

The Marmara guest House was recommended to us by friends who regularly visit Turkey. We were told it was right in the centre of the old town, had beautiful views of the Bosphorus and in addition to clean and modern decor was well run by a friendly and helpful family. The reality was it was all that and more. We had a fabulous time. We will definitely go back. We hesitate to recommend it to strongly only because we don't want it too full !!!!!
