perfect birthday treat

we arrived quite late after an impromtu Istanbul tour via a taxi driver for our 5 night stay only to discover we didn't have a room and we were put in a different hotel for the night which was clean if a bit shabby, and told to return in the morning for breakfast. not the best start but for the other 4 nights we were put in a suite (even though we had only booked and paid for a standard room) which was beautiful with a spa bath so lucky us!!! The staff were friendly and helpful, the bar/restaurant next door was good value and the location was perfect. I would have no reservation in recommending The Agan to anybody visiting Istanbul

Cosy, low-price, supportive management

Everybody was really serviceable and ready to help. Rooms are clean and comfortable, though somewhat small (I got a Street view, which is nicer). Restaurant is open until 2AM. Excellent cook.

Great location and helpful staff

Great value for the money because you can feast on a terrific Turkish breakfast, stroll to the Bazaar and other sights, and have a tea or beer at the outdoor cafe when you return. The staff was very helpful and courteous too!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

On the way to the Bazaar, there are many merchants selling souvenirs, jewelry, and scarves along the way. We got better prices with them than at the Bazaar. Don't forget to bargain!

a wonderful location for visiting historical Istanbul

very close to the Topkapi, to the BlueMosque and AyaSofya, to the Bizantine Cisterns and the Hippodrome (you don't need any taxi!!). The area has plenty of small and also good level restaurants (close to the Yeni Cami and the Egyptian Bazaar). The staff is very helpful and english speaking. The hotel restaurant is average with typical Turkish cuisine. Rooms have good a.c., TV, WiFi and clean, recently refurbished bathroom, but are small. It's good value for the money and for tourism.

There's better hotels out there.

Have no idea where to begin..but this was our honeymoon and it was great except for the hotel we were staying at which really ruined the experience. We were on the 6th floor. Elevator only goes up to 5th floor so we had to walk up a spiral staircase up the stairs each time we came back after a long day out. It was not very pleasant. Especially on our last day with all of our luggage. First day and they put us in a room that did not have shower doors. It seemed like two panels were taken off and were never put back on. We called to speak to someone and they finally sent someone up, who said this is "normal". They were able to change our room to the one next door which was the decent thing to do. The toilet does not flush unless you hold it down. for a very long time. Seriously?? The room was super tiny. There is literally 1-2 feet of space between the bed and the wall. There is no iron in the room or in the hotel for that matter so we had to resort to wearing wrinkled clothes. I get that some hotels do not provide irons to each and every single room, but usually there is one at the hotel so you can request it. However, we were told that it was at least 2-3 lira per article of clothing if you wanted to have your clothes ironed to a place they send the laundry too!! We made do with trying to steam our clothes from the shower to get the wrinkles out if we could but as a matter of principle, I was not going to pay them for a service that should already be provided. There was bird droppings on the window, really not a nice sight to look at every day. Lastly, the customer service was absolutely horrible. The staff there hardly ever smiled at us, much less look at our direction or said a simple hello. It was really rude and I never experienced such poor service anywhere before. Personally, I would go back to a hotel if the customer service is excellent, but I really did not care for staff that lacked basic social skills. I traveled to Istanbul before and the reason why we chose this hotel because the one I really wanted, which was about 1 block away, was full. Pros: Great location , close to a lot of sights and to the tram and Bosphorous.
