short getaway

This hotel is fantastic. The staff are so helpful and friendly, the location is ideal for all the tourist attractions. The rooms are clean and inviting. The breakfast each morning was outstanding with a selection catering for everyone. We were extremely happy and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to family and friends. Made our stay in Istanbul complete.

Lovely boutique hotel, great service & great location

The hotel staff were so nice and accomodating. Its a small boutiqe hotel and they go out of their way for you. They actually give you their time and respond quickly. Seriously great service and such nice people. The hotel was really nice and very clean and the location was great! I would definately recommend this hotel.

Stunning location, lovely people!

This hotel is in an excellent location within a stone's throw of the main attractions in Sultanahmet (Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar). The panoramic view--of the Golden Horn, Europe, Asia and the Bosphorus Bridge--from the roof terrace is absolutely magnificent and made the delicious breakfasts even more special. But the best thing about Agora Life hotel were the staff. We were greeted with a refreshing cup of tea and a friendly, relaxing and helpful conversation about our stay. The kitchen staff looked after us like we were family and our second room was arranged next door to the first when more of our group joined us for the last night, without us even requesting it. Smiles all around and gifts for the ladies on our last day. Thank you Agora Life, we'll be back!
