“welcoming and great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2012

This was our first stay in Istanbul and Agora Life was a great experience. We stayed for 5 nights in June and had a room on the first floor. We loved the terrace - not only the view but the availability of internet, food and drinks there - made it a great space to relax in. We enjoyed the very practical aspects of the hotel - internet access was excellent (this being very important to us) with separate transmitters on each floor; tea and coffee facilities in rooms and big spacious wardrobes where suitcases could be packed out of sight. The room was not large, but had balcony and with suitcases packed away, was big enough for us. I appreciated the generosity when giving us milk for tea and coffee - enough for 2-3 days without having to constantly ask for more.
Kadir and his staff were always welcoming when we returned to the hotel and were very helpful in suggesting sights to see or helping us book to see an attraction. Location is fabtastic and breakfast was good. There wasn't anything that I would criticise in this hotel.

Room Tip: We were on first floor with a balcony and view of Hagia S, but the view is not necessary when the vi...

This hotel has everything going for it. It's close to all the attractions, the staff are helpful and friendly and the breakfasts are really good. The bedroom and bathroom were clean. But the roof terrace was knock out. It has an amazing view of the Bosphorous on one side and the Haghia Sofia on another. We spent every night before dinner on the roof.

Our first stay at Agora Life Hotel was a fantastic experience. The way we were welcomed by the staff and cozy and hommy style with friendly smile and refreshing Turkish tea made us feeling home and something special. The staff and Manager are friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed the good breakfast at the roof terrace over looking to the city of Istanbul, Bosphorus strait and Hagia Sophia on other side. The hotel has the best location to all the touristic, historical sites and good restaurants. 5 minutes to any locations, fantastic! Overall, a great stay and it is Recommended hotel if you are looking for a comfortable and strategic location in Istanbul!
