They recommended what to do and how to best get there. They booked my guides and organised for me to be picked up from the hotel. The... More

We had a lovely stay at The Agora Life. The hotel was clean and tidy. The staff were 5 star in their friendlyness and helpfulness, they made us feel very welcome. Excellent location and marvelous views from the roof terrace.

Nice hotel, clean, the location is great to the historical city center of Istanbul, the new Subway and the ferries are very close by, the old shopping bazaars. All at walking distance. Unfortunately the weather was not nice, so I could not enjoy the great (a must see) roof terrace. On top of all the things written above, the personnel... More

Excellent location within an easy walk of the big sights and the tram system. Many nearby restaurants with high ratings on TA (although some were not deserved, in our view). Staff provided great service and spoke excellent English. View from the roof top terrace is outstanding, although it was too cold for us to use in April. Our room was... More
