This is a wonderfully situated hotel as it is within walking distance to most of the major attractions in Old City. The rooms are very clean and the staff is absolutely wonderful. I wanted to cry on the last day at the hotel because I honestly did not want to leave. Everyone spoke English and were very eager to help. The breakfast is traditional Turkish fare and very filling and plentiful. This is a great hotel and I cannot say enough good things about it. If you are expecting luxury, I would not recommend Agan. If you want a quaint, clean, homey, feel with great service then please go with Agan. I will definitely be back.

Small but clean rooms, friendly staff, good location (walking distance to all major sights). The only disadvantage I could mention is that this part of he city is very noisy at night so we couldn't sleep very well...

My sister and I were happy with this acomodation when we visited Istanbul a year ago. This June we came again and brought our mother. We enjoyed it even better this time! All great points are still great (superb location, clean and convinient, friendly staff, far enough from loud traffic), but this time breakfast was delicious every day and staff always close to clean tables and take used dishes.
Room is small but with everything needed. I would just put refrigerator away since it is not working when nobody is in the room and is hot outside, like heating body in the room.
And we missed grape vine shades outside that was so lovely!
Great convinient hotel in this paradise city!

Great place to stay if you want to explore the Old City. Right in the heart of it all.

Brilliant staff - friendly, helpful and good English.

Rooms are basic but perfectly fine. Restaurant/pub very nice. Nice cats too. Beautiful architecture gives a authentic atmosphere.

A small hotel but with friendly & good English speaking staff & very helpful since the day we arrived.Prices are reasonable..And I would say it's worth..
Location is ideal as it's just walking distance from Gulhane tram station & walking distance to blue mosque,Topkapi palace & to Sirkeci railway station & ferry terminals.
I love this small hotel as it's very ideal & classic place & i miss whole Istanbul since I returned to work.
You can count on front office staff as they do speak English well & willing to help & is available to your inquiries...I'm waiting to go there again..

If you are in Istanbul for couple of days this place is exactly what you need. It is close to all main tourist attractions where you can spend your days and also close to Taksim area full of bars/ restaurants/ nightclubs where to spend your nights. Also, it is couple of blocks away from Marmaray - tram connecting European and Asian side. About hotel - looks recently renovated, rooms are spotless clean with good bathroom. There is a restaurant on the first floor with terrace outside where you can enjoy your meal or drinks. Overall - it was a short stay but it felt like home. Hoping to go back soon.
