Agora Life Hotel was the perfect choice for our four days in Istanbul - in the heart of old Istanbul and just a short walk away from all the main tourist attractions and sites, and our 3rd floor room had a lovely view to the Bosphorus and Hagia Sofia.

Stayed here only one night but was the perfect experience. Rooms are quaint but clean and well attended. Had an amazing view of the Hagia Sofia from the rooftop terrace and room! The hotel is only a few blocks from Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and Basilica Cistern. Walk 15-20 minutes and you'll find yourself at the spice bazaar and Golden... More

From the moment we arrived at this lovely boutique hotel we felt pampered and comfortable. The Santa Sophia Suite may be the best view from a hotel room in the entire city! But what we most enjoyed was the outstanding staff and quiet oasis just steps from many of the major attractions of this terrific city.
