we really enjoyed staying at this friendly well located guest house. very helpful and friendly, comfortable and clean. we would certainly stay there again if we went back to Istanbul. within walking distance of many of the main sights, but in a quiet road, so no noise, and great views from the roof terrace. lovely breakfast.

We stayed here for five nights and found it very well situated,with well furnished rooms,helpful staff and a superb traditional buffet style breakfast with a terrace with views to the Bosphorus. An added bonus was a coffee and tea-making machine available for use when returning from a day of sightseeing.

Very pleasant, friendly accommodation in the heart of Sultanahmet. Rooms and ensuite are clean but typically tight for this area. The location is excellent, quiet and the facility is very well run by a dedicated family and their helpful staff. Lovely undercover rooftop deck for breakfast overlooking the Marmara-comfortable for a read or browsing the tablet via wifi and enjoying...

Single American female stayed at Marmara Guesthouse Oct 9-12, 2014, on layover to Tehran,Iran. I probable had the worst room in the guesthouse, ground floor with window facing storage and laundry area. However this room exceeded all of my needs - quiet, no stairs, large mirror, working wall clock, adequate size, convenient to front desk, very clean, and less expensive...

We enjoyed our stay at Marmara: a great location close to major sites and a large array of good restaurants, but on a very quiet street. The staff was very helpful. The stairs could be challenging for older people.

I just returned from Istanbul and a three night stay at the Marmara Guesthouse. My only regret is not spending more time there. After a long flight from Chicago with a layover in Paris arriving at the Marmara was a welcome treat. I knew the next morning when I sat on the rooftop terrace and had a wonderful cup of...

Not only is Marmara Guesthouse in a prime location in Istanbul, the facilities, service and atmosphere are spectacular! I was surprised after a very short walk from the guesthouse to find myself right behind the AyaSofia!! In a street nearby the Marmara guesthouse is an amazing selection of restaurants of high quality. Breakfasts at Marmara Guesthouse were delicious with a...

My family and I had a wonderful stay in Istanbul at Marmara Guesthouse. The staff were friendly and always helpful; the location was fantastic with easy walks to most of the major sites in Sultanahmet and beyond, though situated on a quiet street away from much of the noise nearby. The free breakfast was delicious, especially the pancakes and jams...

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.
