    If you are seeking a friendly, intimate place to stay, Agora should be your pick! First, the hotel is really budget-friendly compared to other places. It is located in a very popular area full of hotels, hostels and pensions but it manages to distinguish itself with its atmosphere, charm and service.
    Its rooms are cosy and have a homelike feeling to them. The shared rooms have AC. The price gap between private rooms with view and private standard rooms is so small that you can go for the former without hesitation. It has a cosy and lovely terrace café where you can sip your drinks while browsing the books of the small café library.
    And most importantly, the owners and the staff are wonderful. They are really friendly, helpful and show that they genuinely care about every detail of your visit.

    This is the most perfect place to stay when visiting the historical sights.
    It is literally a 5 minute walk from The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophiia.
    The hostel is surrounded by plenty of bars and restaurants and it only about 5 minutes from the tram that can get you anywhere in the city.
    There is also wifi throughout!!

    A decent place to stay in the heart of Sultanahmet and just a short walk to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Agora itself offers both dorm rooms and hotel rooms. It seems to be at the cheaper end of the hotels in the area and is clean and friendly so definitely a good option.
