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.

Marmara Guesthouse is located only a few short blocks from the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque in the charming Sultanahmet quarter. There are dozens of restaurants just around the corner. The rooms are nice and clean, bathrooms are well appointed. Breakfast is served each morning on the rooftop patio with views of the Sea of Marmara - a wide selection...

Marmara Guesthouse is very close to the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. It is very safe walking around this area. The guesthouse has a nice intimate feel. The breakfast on the rooftop terrace overlooking the sea is great.

See photos of the double room on the first floor and the roof terrace where generous breakfast was served. The double room I had was bright, clean & comfortable. The bathroom, however, was cramped. I requested for a universal adapter and it was immediately delivered to my room. When I checked out of the guesthouse, the young man at the...

I really enjoyed my 5-night stay in this guesthouse. I worked from here and the WiFi was even faster than my WiFi at home! The room was comfortable with nice sheets and towels and a fine bathroom. It more than met my needs and was a great deal, and the people at the front desk were very helpful in making...

I stayed at this guesthouse in mid-November for 3 nights. I arranged for transportation pick-up from the airport which the hotel organized as my flight arrived after 1 a.m. on a weekday. The staff was very kind and so warm. Check-in and check-out was effortless. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. I stayed on the first...

We knew the location would be great, but it was even better than we expected. So close to everything. It was especially nice to be so close to some great restaurants. The staff was very helpful and were always willing to help us with whatever we needed. An added bonus was the delicious breakfast- the crepes were soo good.

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.
