Istanbul is a hectic city and being able to escape to the rooftop terrace of Agora, with its views of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and the Bosphorus was the perfect way to end each day. We were able to walk to most major attractions from Agora and there are amazing restaurants a stone’s throw away. As two young girls... More

The staff were friendly, rooms were clean, and the breakfast was decent (and very filling). During my stay, there were almost no English speaking guests (mostly Koreans), so I spent a good bit of downtime talking with the staff, who were helpful and friendly. And they were big soccer fans, which was a plus.

We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2014 and had the best time. The location is great for sight-seeing, the room was clean, comfortable and air-conditioned, the rooftop area was a delight to spend time in and the staff were the best!!!

My partner had stayed at the Agora Guesthouse on a number of occasions in the past so it was the first place I tried. Let me let you that I found the place 100% to my satisfaction and the reasons are: 1) So close to the museums, mosques and shops; 2) the directions given by the Agora Guesthouse when I... More
