Our family had moved from south of Turkey to Istanbul in 1994 and since thenn, we have been running Marmara Guesthouse in the Old City-Sultanahmet. Since the summer of 2008, we have also been running Saruhan Hotel. We are trying to welcome our guests with the comfort of being in a warm family place.


Marmara Guesthouse is a great place for those who want to have a small, quiet and clean accommodation which is very close to museums and the tram stationWe have 14 private rooms with private facilities followed by our lovely vine-covered roof terrace which has have great sea view. 


We are 8 in our family: I "Elif", my sun Metehan, and my husband Orkun, my brother "Ersin" , his sun Efe and his wife Yasemin, our lovely Mum "Mrs.Ayse" and lovely Dad "Mr. Faik".

My brother and I can both fluently 
speak English and Japanese. We graduated from Istanbul university having both studied business administration. We are very happy to talk with our guests about Istanbul, Turkey, and its history. We would be very happy to answer all your questions about Istanbul and Turkey.


Our parents can speak a little English just enough to understand simple things. My mum loves to cook any kind of jams. She is very happy when our guests like it.


My father is always busy fixing something in the guesthouse; he always has a lovely smile.


We will all be very happy to see you in our guesthouse. You are always WELCOME to Marmara Guesthouse in Istanbul.
