Recommended by Lonely Planet three years in a row as "TOP CHOICE"

Author writes "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.

Furthermore, there are many cafes & restaurants serving traditional meals, shops of authentic goods, and entertainment places in the hotels district. We are surrounded with full of life but located on a very quiet and charming street.

You can enjoy our traditional Turkish breakfast which is free of charge (you will love my mum's ,Mrs. Ayse’s, homemade jams) while watching seagulls with an exciting view of the Bosphorus & Marmara Sea and Asian side on our beautiful vine-covered terrace or relax on our terrace while you are having a free coffee, after a busy day.

This place was great! Very close to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, etc. very quiet and peaceful on this street, but walk 1 block over and it's a party! Everyone was so nice, helpful, and informative. The balcony and the breakfast were amazing as well. There is a laundromat directly next door and the shuttle to the airport is $6 dollars. Would return in a heartbeat!

We stayed in Istanbul for 3 nights and we had a great time! During our stay we mainly interacted with Yagmur, who was really nice and helpful. We didn't had any problems to communicate with him as his English was excellent. The room was very clean and comfortable, with included cleaning service everyday. The breakfast was served at the terrace (which was lovely by the way), and had a lot of tasty options. The neighborhood is full of restaurants, really safe at night and a few blocks away from the Sultanahmet square. The nearest tram station is around 5-10 minutes away, which was very helpful. We definitely recommend this place and look forward to returning some day!

I love Istanbul and I feel I am so lucky to live in this beautiful city. It is full of everything: history; Roman, Byzantium, Ottoman, great food, modernism, orientalism, old, new, nature, full of culture, surrounded by water ( Golden Horn, Bosporus, Marmara sea), seagulls, cats, dogs, Asia and Europe, architecture, churches, mosques, mosaics, insightful museums, bazaars and more...
My family moved from Isparta which is south of Turkey to Istanbul about 23 years ago and my parents opened this guesthouse. My dad was just a lorry driver but he opened a guesthouse without any English or experience. He was so brave! I was a kid but loved to grow up with tourists in our house.
Now we have this great place in a great location and great sea view with great guests from all over the world and this is just my life now.
I have graduated from Istanbul University with a degree in Business Administration and as a student discovered our beautiful nature when I had joined a climbing club at Istanbul University. Climbing then became a hobby for me.
Aside from mountain climbing, I also go canyoning, caving (there are lots of caves waiting to be discovered in Turkey), scuba diving and try to see other parts of the world.
I think growing up among tourists has given me the culture of traveling. Not only is Istanbul beautiful, our world is so beautiful and so colorful and we must see every single part of our great world before we die.
In short:
I cannot live without Istanbul!
I cannot live without traveling!
I cannot live without mountains, caves, nature, animals!
I cannot live without my family!
And I cannot live without my Marmara Guesthouse!
