Liked: Location was very good, five minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, very central to all facilities and local pick up points.

Disliked: Our room was very clean but very dark, did not have a nice view, other rooms in the Hostel looked bright and more similar to the pictures on the website, For me personally there wasnt much selection with breakfast, more fruit would have been nice, too much sauces and jams.

08 December 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: paramount among my expectations of accomodation is always cleanliness and Maramara did not dissappoint. İn addition the family is friendly and helpful, the food is great (you,re saving at least 15 lira a day with this breakfast) and it is located right in the heart of old İstanbul. We travelled with a 7 year old and this was an excellent choice for a family.

Disliked: We are Canadian and like a cool room. We found the duvets a bit warm and the room a little warm.

She has incredible travel knowledge and nothing was too difficult for her to help us with. The tours and experiences that she recommends are spot-on for great Istanbul experiences!
