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

The Manger, offered to moves us but after the first night we decided against it. The reason being is that we preferred the... More

Agora Life sits in a perfect location: at walking distance of the main attractions (Hipodrome, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi, blue Mosque) and the Grand Bazaar. It is also near the tram station that takes you everywhere. The area has a lot of good restaurants, a great nightlife (don't miss going near the blue mosque at night, with water fountain with colors... More

Good location in Istanbul, 5 minutes from Topkapi Palace, St Sophia, Blue Mosque and the whole historical center of the city. Lovely staff, great breakfast with plenty of choice, clean rooms, nice rooftop with a view on most monuments. We stayed there for 4 nights. I recommend this hotel.

We booked this hotel in transit through Istanbul and enjoyed the location, comfort, and environment very much. We plan to come for a longer visit sometime and will definitely recommend this place to anyone. Family of 5, they accommodated us nicely even though family room was already booked.
