We had a nice stay at the Agora Guesthouse. We booked a double room with a private ensuite bathroom and were surprised to see that we had a lovely view of the ocean and the Asian side of Istanbul. The guesthouse was very easy to walk to from the tram and was steps away from tons of restaurants. Nights were... More

It has a great view of sea. Their breakfast is given in a buffet style on this floor. What I liked most was their hand-made cakes. They’re... More

I have stayed in Agora 3 times since April 2013. It feels like my home away from home and the staff know me by now. Every day begins with a great breakfast, clean showers, and a friendly smile from the staff. They have helped me to organize tours, airports rides, order food, send postcards and even received a set of... More
