Lonely Planet review
There are plenty of family-run pensions in Sultanahmet, but few can claim the Marmara's levels of cleanliness and comfort. Manager Elif Aytekin and her family go out of their way to make guests feel welcome, offering plenty of advice and serving a delicious breakfast on the vine-covered, sea-facing roof terrace. Rooms have comfortable beds, good bathrooms and double-glazed windows.
Members of the same family operate the similarly impressive Saruhan Hotel in the predominantly residential pocket of Kadirga.
Our independent authors have visited Marmara Guesthouse and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Sultanahmet.
