I stay 2 nights at this guesthouse but i'll never come back here. Very small rooms, no tv, no refrigerator, no internet wireless even if they said it will be.

I chose this guest house after reading previous positive comments, and booked 5 nights. I wanted a small place with a personal touch and in this it was excellent - very nice people, very pleasant and helpful. Good breakfast, great view from the roof terrace. Very conveniently placed, a few minutes from ayasofia, but in a quiet back street, thank goodness, away from the noisy bars of the main street. On my first night, however, I was disturbed by loud music and shouting of drunken tourists in spite of the fairly effective double glazing. This was quite a depressing start but, I'm glad to say, was not repeated. Rooms at the front of the house would not suffer from this.

Excellent service. Very friendly family with very good English willing to help with all questions. Will certainly recommend! Room very clean, particularly the toilet with plenty of hot water. Air-con and comfortable beds. Surrounding restaurants can be a bit noisy, but only in the evening, when one is normally not in anyway. Amazing views of the Bosporus from rooftop brekfats terrace. Very reasonably priced beverages and FREE WI-FI or PC at your disposal!

My husband and I loved being part of this welcoming family guesthouse. We felt genuinely cared for and Elif managed all our requests with efficiency and generosity of spirit. The roof garden showed spectacular views across the Bosporus both day and hight, the breakfast provided always fresh and beautifully presented and our rooms well tended. I can recommend this guest house to all our friends and contacts and will certainly return again to Marmara guest house where we made such good friends with the owners.

all these comments correspond to the Saruhan hotel where we were transferred. We were a group of ten and we have all appreciated the hotel,especially the view from the terrace at breakfast the furniture of the rooms should be improved nice welcome and good service

Since The Marmara Guest House was hosting a youth group at the same time, we were offered to move to the new Saruhan Hotel that was run by the same family, which we did. Above ratings are for for the Saruhan Hotel.

We all agreed that we could not have found a better hotel in any way. Marmara Guesthouse was centrally located, clean, and beautiful; the breakfast was perfect; and the family that runs it is lovely and helpful. I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone visiting Istanbul.

Sehr schöne Dachterrasse mit schattigem Weinlaub und sagenhaftem Blick auf das Marmarameer (blaue Moschee allerdings rückwärtig etwas von Gebäuden verdeckt), leckeres Frühstück, freundliche und aufmerksame Gastgeber. Nur kleine, kaum erwähnenswerte Einschränkungen: Haus war erste Nacht überbucht, wir mussten in Ersatzunterkunft nebenan (die war aber auch o.k.); auf Nachttisch fand ich Haarbüschel meiner Vorgängerin (sonst aber gewissenhaftes Cleaning); Empfehlung für Restaurant beinhaltete nicht den Hinweis, dass Etablissement ohne Alkoholausschank. Insgesamt kann ich aber sagen, dass es ein empfehlenswertes Haus ist!

We (two 40 something yr old women) spent two weeks in Turkey and this was one of our very favorite places! We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip and couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. The family who owns and runs the guest house couldn't be nicer or more helpful. The view from the roof top terrace was incredible, and the location was ultra convenient (walking distance to Mosques, markets,hammams, etc...). The rooms are European sized (the baths also),well-furnished, and the breakfast was fresh and plentiful. We will stay at Marmara again when we return (planning another trip to Turkey to see the Black Sea Coast!). Did I mention how lovely the owners are---they really made our stay something to remember!

The family which run the Marmara could not have been more helpful. We booked our room in advance and got a room which met our requests. The house is located in the Sultanahmet district of Istanbul, which means all the 'historic' features of the city are within walking distance. Everything you could possibly need is right on your doorstep; shops, restaurants, bars, bakery, etc. Don't be discouraged by the proximity of these facilities though; they all close up at midnight, any noise from them is easily stopped by the double glazing. We slept with the windows open, it is that peaceful. The only drawback with the rooms is the restricted space you have for clothing storage; not a problem I guess for backpackers, but if you're the standard tourist, you might not want to be storing your clothes in your luggage. A bedside cabinet, coat hangers and a rail are normally provided, we found this adequate enough. The view of the Marmaris Sea from the breakfast room or roof terrace is wonderful, especially at dawn or dusk. During our stay, the Sultanahmet district suffered from the water supply being interrupted ~ this was not a problem for us as the Marmara Guest house has many storage tanks so our supply never stopped. We also spent a pleasant hour in the breakfast room with the other guests watching an incredible electrical storm roll across Istanbul. The downside to this is, the local area suffered from an electrical outage for 24 hours. Not a problem for the Marmara: they have their own back up generator! Unfortunately, during our stay, it did break down (but has now been fixed!). We did not mind this either as Elif quickly distributed scented candles to all the guests, which we found romantic and fun ;-) . The cold shower in the morning was also very bracing, as my yelps testified. My wife declined to partake, citing excessive laughing. We also recommend the Sultan Café around the corner run by Chengiz – just tell him Deborah & Mark sent you!
