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...

This guest house is new and immaculate and the staff very kind and responsive. Its location is the best possible with terrace views of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Bosporus shipping.

That about sums it up! One of the cleanest hostels I've ever had the pleasure to stay in. Plenty of showers & toilets, excellent breakfast and the hostel employees were great. Pretty mellow crowd so I had no problems with noise, etc. Great location for visiting all of the major tourist sites - a little far from the nightlife though....

From the rooftop on the premise you can expect sunshine pouring through heavy shade of clouds into marmara sea. To throw out everything inside, I saw there white seagulls as a auspicious incarnation of angel! Well, that may be happen even in neighbours of the same business and thus, you really have a chance to experience for yourself what I...

Great place to stay in the middle of the tourist district. Walk to everything. Good service (except for one unhappy employee), good breakfast spread in the morning, and great views from the rooftop terrace of both the blue mosque and aya sofia. I would stay here again.

In a very nice-looking well-kept house I have found the best service I could get according to my budget! I have stayed in a 4-bed mixed dorm shared bathroom for two nights and loved everything: the location, the comfortable mattress, one of the cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen, the view from the terrace, the delicious breakfast, full of options...

I stayed here for a week so got to know and appreciate the friendly team who run this little guesthouse. It's spotlessly clean and great value. Included in the price is a super breakfast buffet in the rooftop common room and terrace, which you can enjoy while looking out over the Bosporus.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
