First of all location is perfect of this hotel and rooms bathroom is also perfect too.
Also hotel workers were so friendly and helpful and it was great that they are giving information about Istanbul when they first welcoming us. In any hotel we saw that before and it was so helpful too.
Breakfast was all okey and you should try to eat breakfast or drink a glass of wine at perfect terrace with amazing view...
Last thanks to Mr. Murat for his helps anytime and good information about the city...
We will definitely come to Istanbul and of course this hotel!

This charming hotel is hard to find but well worth it! Wonderful owner/manager/host -- helpful even before we arrived with airport transfer and finding a great private guide. Really clean! Nice rooms, small bathroom but more than adequate. Surprisingly nice breakfast and well worth taking it tot he rooftop terrace to view Istanbul before you. Location couldn't be better for highlights of Istanbul.

This hotel is ideally located in the old city. Everything is within walking distance. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and had many great suggestions. The owner,who happens to be a retired architect, is there almost daily and is very involved and concerned with the satisfaction of his guests.He personally arranged for all our transportation at great rates. The rooms are very clean,functional and quiet. Breakfast was wonderful with a delicious variety every morning. The lady staffing the breakfast is just incredible in her helpfulness and happens to be a great cook. She makes the absolute best omellettes in any fashion you may desire. We will definitely stay here again. We miss this place already.

I really enjoyed my stay at Agora Life! The location is beyond great. It is a 5 minute walk away from most of the must see places (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, etc.) There are plenty of restaurants and shops around. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful and finally, they have great breakfast. Highly recommend!

Very nice people and helpful staff. Great place to stay especially if you want to visit old part of the city - 10 minutes on foot from Hagia Sophia and The Blue Mosque. Wifi in the hotel - great. Sure I will be back there once more!

Room Tip: Terrace with beautiful view on Hagia Sophia and half of Stambul. Delicious breakfast on the terrace!

Our travel agent recommended this boutique hotel to us and we were not disappointed. Kadir and his staff are amongst the nicest people we've met and all their tips were extremely helpful. The location is ideal as it is within walking distance to all major attractions and they have fantastic views from their roof top terrace where one can have breakfast as well as afternoon drinks. I highly recommend this hotel to explore the amazing city of Istanbul.

This is a wonderful small hotel in Istanbul with a staff that could not have been nicer or more helpful. We stayed in the Santa Sofia Suite which had a wonderful view of the Haya Sofia and the Bosphorus. There is a great roof top deck with a panoramic view. Breakfast was very good. The hotel was quiet and in a safe location. I would stay there again.
