We had a fantastic time in this gorgeous little hotel in Ağva. The atmosphere is marvelous, really peaceful. Having breakfast and dinner by the river while the night falls was a real pleasure. Food was top notch - special thank you for the delicious homemade marmalade! It really is a place designed for relax. Simple, clean, tidy, with a garden... More

In a chaise longue or hammock under the sun, or fishing in summer, with a glass of wine near the fireplace in winter. Delicious dishes,... More

We stayed at Tranquilla for two days in april and it was wonderful. The location is great, nearby the river. The place was peaceful and comfortable. The food was good, the owners and the service made us feel at home. And it was very romantic. I truly recommend it.

The first thing that caught my attention was the couple running this little river hotel. I have stayed at numerous hotels in Turkey and ate at many more restaurants in our 7 years residing here. The whole approach this couple has is very unusual in Turkey in my opinion and sets the mark on the whole place. It is reflected... More

I spent 2 nights at Tranquilla River Lodge to get away from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul. A great place to totally unwind and relax. Besides taking a pedalo to the golden beach nearby there is nothing to do - which is the beauty of the place! Relax on a hammock, read a book, surf the net (using free... More

My girlfriend and I are from the U.S. and have recently relocated to Istanbul for work. We took our first weekend excursion from the city to the Tranquilla River Lodge in Agva. It was recommended by a friend, and we were so happy that we went there. The lodge has so much character, and the food and service are excellent.... More

The hotel is really the most tranquil spot in between a series of crowded hotels in Agva resort. Read your book, walk or row to the seaside, or just step out of the real world and enjoy a blank day on a sunbed. The real tranquilty is on weekdays and off season, i.e. early spring & late autumn.

The first review describes it very well. We were there on a weekday in the off season and found it to be wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The food was phenomenal--large selection of main courses, artful presentation and delicious! The hotel is very quaint--something quite rare in Turkey. It is located on a river leading to the Black Sea, far enough... More
