Clean and comfortable little hotel in a very convenient location within easy walking distance to a long list of sites and amenities. Fantastic and helpful staff plus a
lovely breakfast provided on the beautiful rooftop terrace with beautiful views. A wonderful value for the cost. I will definitely be booking here again if/when I return to Istanbul!

The hotel is located within 5 mins of the Blue mosque and Hagia Sofia. It is small but very nicely maintained. The staff are very hospitable and helpful. The breakfast on the roof was great. Perfect place to stay if you are looking for a budget friendly hotel.

A pleasant and well-placed hostel less than ten minutes walk from most of the best sites in Istanbul, the Marmara is a clean, comfortable and convenient place for any traveller to the city.

The terrace view at the top of the building is a pleasant one across the Bosphorus, and a cool and welcome one at the end of a day's walking in the heat. The breakfast is a varied one, with everything to suit every traveler, whether sweet-toothed or savoury preferred. The staff are polite and always ready to help or offer any advice on places to see and the times to visit, which is important in a city where several sites will be closed for often inexplicable reasons.

Overall, the Marmara provides great value for money, and is certainly somewhere I would go back to if returning to Istanbul.

Don't be fooled by the name, this is a hotel, small and basic, but very clean and nice. The reception and general service was very warm and accommodating. My daughter and I were blown away by the selection at the breakfast buffet. Oh, not to forget, it's a very inexpensive place too. I'll come back.

This is a great place to stay in Istanbul. It is well located very close to the Blue Mosque and Aghia sofia (though this inevitably means a rather touristy area with a lot of restaurants touting for tourist business. Still, there are plenty of other options not far away). We had a pleasant room (though would have welcomed a bedside light - it was a bit dark for reading at night time) but the best thing about the place is the very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. The next best thing is the roof terrace where breakfast (delicious, varied and plentiful) is served but which is also available at other times to sit in and have a drink.
