TravelPod Member ReviewsMarmara Guesthouse Istanbul
Marmara Guesthouse is in a perfect location to enjoy the old city of Istanbul. It is quiet and comfortable with a lovely view over the Bosphorus. This family run guesthouse offers help with local tours as well as arranging trips throughout the countryside. Very good choice

... that I admit to arriving in the Istanbul airport and coming to the realization that I'm woefully unprepared for this trip.
