As a traveller within US and Europe I have stayed at many hotels. Agora Life was one of best among hotels I have been at this trip. It's a little hotel met all my needs, offers clean rooms with smilling service.

Hotel has great location that has easy excess to the sights. There are many nice restaurants around corner where I could have nice meals with reasonable prices. Fish house is highly recommended for a nice fish meal.

Patio of the hotel had great views where can enjoy breakfast or drink a nice turk coffee after a long day. Hotel offers free wifi which was a bonus and been charged in other countries.

I recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Most important factor in selecting this hotel was the availability of a suite. My husband and I were planning a 6 night stay so we wanted good amount of space. Location was important as well (this didn't disappoint). We arrived at 1am after a long flight only to be told that our reservation had been lost (but then somehow found) and in the meantime our suite was booked out to another party for the first two nights. Oh, but we would be given a discount, not to worry (which turned out only to be the price of the smaller room that we were given the first two nights). First room was truly miniscule. Third day we were moved to the suite, it was roomier with a lovely view. However, for the last three days there was no internet and for the last two mornings there was no hot water for the shower. Always an excuse about why but never fixed. We checked out very early in the morning, tried to get our bill the night before to be sure everything was OK but got the runaround. When we were given the bill 5 minutes before we had to leave for the airport, of course many errors (not in our favor). Very disappointed and would not recommend at all. Only positive besides the location was the roof terrace, it was lovely.

We couldn't expect a better and warmer welcome. Complimentary coffee or tea on arrival and a comprehensive and helpful explanation of places to visit whilst there. Nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect to visit all the major attractions on foot and the tram took us to further sites of interest. Many different dishes offered for breakfast. The hotel is located on a quiet street, so there was no noise at night.The twin rooms are better sized than the double room we had, but this wasn't a problem. The hotel is modern and clean. There is a wonderful terrace on the top floor with magnificent views and where one can have breakfast, drinks or coffee. Recommended. We would certainly stay there again!

A hotel excellently situated for all important sites with friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Nothing too much trouble. I really cannot recommend enough for a truly restful stay.
To be honest, our room was on the small side but we didn't spend much time in it during the day so this was not a big drawback. Sheets changed daily which was impressive. Breakfast is comprehensive and of good quality. We would certainly choose to stay here again.

Whether for short stay or a weekend break is one of best that I been. This small hotel made our short holiday greater than we expected. Staff of hotel have been most attantive we ever faced. Room was not to big but enough for few days. We cannot fault the hotel and will be back again. Probably in summer to have our drinks on terrace with nicest view in city.

In the meantime, we thank to Kadir and his attantive staff. They even arranged for a free drop of to airport which was a bonus.
