This was a small hotel situated in a great location. The staff were extremely helpful and we had fantastic views of the bosporus from our bedroom (deluxe double). Roof top terrace was a wonderful location to relax and/or enjoy breakfast. Not on a main street, so very quiet at night. Would have stayed longer if there had have been availablilty.. so book early! Would definately return again.

Room Tip: Higher floor, better views, upgrade to deluxe room to be guaranteed fantastic views

This hotel is located in an amazing spot. Easy walking distance to most of the key attractions and the Tram system. Amazing views over istanbul and right next to the oldest Hammam.

The hotel is very small and there is only a small reception so its actually more of a Bed and Breakfast albeit an excellent one. The breakfast was nice and you can take your breakfast to the rooftop (but you might have some trouble finding some space if its busy).

We were very pleased with our choice of hotel for Istanbul for the few days we were there.

I spent some days with my family in Istanbul, we were in Agora life. It is not the first time we are in this hotel. Location is perfect, rooms are nice and clean. Staff is very kind. There is a terrace with unbelievable views. Overall the perfect choice in Istanbul.

Our stay at the Agora Life got an amazing start when we were shown our room and found that we looked out over both the Bosporus and Ayu Sophia. Breath-taking! The room was a suite and very spacious. A lovely fruit basket and a bottle of wine waited for us. Everything was absolutely first-class, excellent shampoos and toiletries, comfortable beds and triple glazing on the windows for a silent night's sleep. The breakfast buffet was very generous and being able to eat on the roof terrace an extra bonus. It is in an excellent location, easy walking distance to all the major sights. There are many good restaurants also within easy walking distance. We will be returning and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The Sophia suite is worth every cent!

We have stayed in this hotel 4 nights with my beyonce and we really enjoyed so much. First of all workers are so nice and friendly that they helped us in any reason and also they tried their best to make us feel so comfort and relax and enjoy the holiday in Istanbul and they helped us to see around and also we are so thankful to Mr. Eser because of his perfect info about Istanbul.

Also location is perfect and close to everywhere and view from hotel is amazing that you can see perfect shape of Istanbul. Rooms are clean and breakfast is good. We will definitely come to Istanbul again and of course we will stay here. We are recommending this hotel to everyone. Also please dont leave hotel before drinking a wine at terrace at evening while sunset. You will enjoy a lot.
