I was here a couple of days in november and so loved it. I travelled around Turkey but never had been to Istanbul before, a bit afraid of 'kalabalık' (Crowded) But Marmara Guesthouse is in a kind of blind alley in the Sultan Ahmet area. So it was quiet peacefully. I am pretty spoilt when it comes to Turkish breakfast...

Such a great little place. Comfortable rooms, lovely and helpful staff, as well as a yummy breakfast served on a terrace with a gorgeous view!!! Rooms are basic but properly fitted out and so comfortable. Some steep stairs, but you can manage it... there are rooms on the lower floors if this is an issue. Excellent location for sightseeing, particularly...

Excellent location within 5 minutes walk of the "Blue" mosque. Our room was very clean and tastefully decorated, the bed was comfortable, shower and toilet clean with reliable hot water.

More than its nice neighborhood, its splendid view of the Bosphorous from rooftop terrace, and the historical sites around it, you will miss the kind and friendly staffs of the guesthouse and the sensation of feeling yourself at your home.

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.
