“A must see place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Tranquilla River Lodge is an incredible place made with real wood and decorated with a great ahmosphere. Before I have discovered tranquilla I have been to three different hotels in Agva but once discovered Tranguilla that was it.

I try to go there every winter for a weekend, and has always been sad to leave the place on sunday. The food is amazing, staff is very professional and so friendly and should not forget the amazing fire place and the real natural stones that goes up to the ceiling above it. The beatiful garden etc..

I would strongly,without any hesitation, recommend Tranquilla to everyone who wishes to have a break in Istanbul.

Really nice and friendly staff and owners. We spent 3 beautiful and relaxing days in Agva. Food was amazing, the rooms are small but very clean and there is enough place to hang around in the lodge and garden house. Hospitality exceeded our expectations, it's really a charming hotel.
Thank you Tranquilla for those nice days!

The Tranquilla River Lodge is a beautiful hotel with wooden buildings, a cozy garden with hammocks, a fireplace which is lit at night and provided with big pillows to sit on, and a terrace right at the river where it's possible to eat dinner and breakfast.

The hotel was very nice, and the food was amazing. As we were there, though, the first two days of our stay there weren't anyone in the staff who spoke English, which ended up in us not knowing (and missing out on) the included dinner at the hotel - which btw. was very nice food one could pick out from a menu card with several options. To compensate for the misunderstanding, the hotel manager did provide us with an extra free lunch and a delicious treat of white wine, cheese, nuts, and fruit on our second evening there as we were sitting by the bonfire - great!

The room was clean, but very small (especially the bathroom, where my 1.93m boyfriend couldn't stand upright), and the toilet did have an unpleasant smell of riverwater. Besides that and the lack of English speaking hosts the hotel was pretty perfect!

We stayed there for one night with our son 1,5 year old. Staff is smiling. It has beautiful garden near the river, wonderfful and delicious dinner, good breakfast but small rooms.
I recommend. I wish i did not pay 5 TL for a coke at dinner.

Just returned from this fantastic place , where we had an amazing indulging experience .
we took two rooms , they were clean and tidy , so were the bathrooms . The whole place is surronded by nature from the trees , the green mountains , the flowers to the calm river.The reception saloon was unique with it's classical oriental style and a typical fireplace where we used to have turkish tea and play different turkish games . The food itself was a totally different
experience , never can I forget the dinner we had by the riverside , the starters salads , the wonderful BBQ food and the excessive attention to the details .
Management and Staff were friendly beyond imagination , there hospitality exceeded expectations , they did there best to make sure we are happy and satisfied .we will make sure to come back as soon as possible. truthfully it was a trip to remember !!

The hotel is located just near the river they have a couple of bugalow houses. Its quite, peaceful and nicely decorated. Breakfast (avarage taste) and dinner ( good!) included. The rooms were neat. What i liked most about the hotel was , we took the canoo and went to the end of river where you meet sea. The seaside was perfect, calm clean and had a wonderful view. I would suggest this hotel for a weekend stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

wooden bungalow style rooms are placed around a lovely garden which gives a nice feeling.. the rooms are tiny with double beds. we stayed there 2 nights in two different rooms. the first room was horrible, very old furnitures and since the establishment is wooden we heard every step and "movement" from the upstairs room. the staff was so kind to change our room the next day where we finally had some sleep.
the food is great and the service is very good thanks to the staff being so friendly.. however, i can't say the same for the owners who did not even bother smiling to their customers.
we expected a lot more from the place considering the price we paid.
