Reviewed 15 December 2013

I've stayed at Hotel Agan 3 times so far and would happily stay there again if I'm back in Istanbul. The hotel is very well located, a pleasant 10-15 min walk to Hagia Sofia and Topkapi palace, under 5 min to either of the two closest tram stations. The price was very reasonable. The room is fairly basic but has everything one needs: shower, small fridge, even free slippers (thin but useful, and a nice gesture anyway). The street below is narrow and full of tourists sitting around on pillows and smoking water pipes. One piece of advice: when you get into your room for the 1st time, make sure to inspect the room lights, faucets, etc., before tipping the porter guy, to avoid calling them again and tipping even more if, say, a lamp doesn't work. Overall: very pleasant little hotel.

The hotel seemed to receive consistently good reviews and we weren't disappointed. We came from the Airport using the Metro and Tram for about £1 each. The tram stop is only about 300m away from the hotel. Our welcome was warm and friendly and we were shown to our room. We quickly discovered that the radiator wasn't working and Istanbul was COLD. The problem was quickly rectified and we were also given the handset to operate the reverse air-con unit to supply some extra heat. The room was slightly on the small side and you had to coordinate your movements! Breakfast was extensive and you had no reason to leave hungry. We always ate around 9am and it could be rather cramped.....tables pushed together and some soft seating that was rather low down. All these little issues fade into insignificance when you consider the price and great location. We didn't eat in the hotel or at any of the numerous nearby restaurants so I can't comment on the Agan's dinner menu or offer other advice. The internet was fairly reliable and fast enough to watch the UK TV news on my iPad. As everybody remarks, the majority of tourist locations are within easy walking distance and the tram takes you to many of those further afield. We left happy!

Hotel Agan has been my choice for the second time and I was not disappointed. Walking distance from historic sites (Hagia Sofia, Topkapi, Great Bazar), next to tram and ferries, within pedestrian zone - the ideal place to start exploring Istanbul.

The hotel is located close to the main attractions of the old city.
The staff are polite and helpful. The rooms are comfortable. Breakfast is very tasty and varied.
The tram stop is a 5-minute walk away.

I stayed in this hotel twice. And I will stay at Hotel AGAN again.

Small friendly hotel, we had the chance of a good large room.
The terrace restaurant was sufficiently heated right in the middle of December.
The hotel's location is very good close to the commercial, tourist, railway, tram.
Staff really friendly,helpful.
I would like to return

This is a very well located hotel, in the heart of the old town and within very short walking distance of the main sights. The staff are very helpful and the rooms are comfortable. The breakfast buffet is superb and there is a nice atmosphere in the bar attached to the hotel. We'll definitely be back!
