“Very well located and clean hotel”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The hotel is very well located , all is near : tram ,boat , Galata bridge , Blue mosque , Topkapi musem...
The staff is kind and welcoming.
The room is very clean but small and a bit noisy.
The breakfast is varied and tasty.

The reviews are accurate, nice place with a great location. But there are many other places nearby for low price with about the same quality. One thing I really didn't like about Hotel Agan is that they have a rule where no food or drinks are allowed to be brought in. So if you want to buy snacks, dinner, or drinks elsewhere and take it to your room, it is against their rules. But all their food and drinks are bar prices. Not nice if you want a quiet evening relaxing in your room. And their food and drink prices are a bit high. If you walk a couple blocks where locals go, prices for items are lower. Some friends stayed at Gulhane Corner Hotel which is only about 100yds away and it was just as nice for less money. We only had dinner at Hotel Agan twice all week, and they got our order wrong both times. But we had a very nice time in Istanbul and Hotel Agan is a good value, Just be aware there are many other good options in the old city area.

Fabulously easy to get to from Aturak airport--a quick train ride connecting to a slightly longer tram ride, and then a 3 minute walk to hotel. Very close to Hagia Sofia and Sultanamet. Delicious included breakfast. Nice, helpful staff. Rooms and hallways are tiny but very clean. The area is noisy so bring earplugs.

The hotel is located right in the old town and life is going on. The view from my window was not very spectacular - to the rubbish dump on neighbors roof! But the hotel is nice - even the rooms are very small. Service is great - one of these places, where they know you after a few hours.
Restaurant is good with plenty of fun. You will enjoy the old boss counting money whole day!
Will come back.

Room Tip: Maybe there are bigger rooms. Find out.

The is the most downmarket of several hotels I have stayed at in Istanbul over the years but ... it's also one of my favourites. Why ? Excellent location, spotless and good buffet breakfast.

First: Location.

Not only is it close to (walkable to) all the 'must see' sights in Sultanahmet, it's also one minute from the brand new Sirkeci train station (4 minutes to Asia on the partly opened Marmaray line ... ), two minutes from the T1 tram line (for grand bazaar and Taksim [via Kabatas funicular]) and 10 minutes walk from the docks at Eminonu. (Or take the T1 tram ..).

The under publicised cheapest and enjoyable transit from Sabiha Gokcen airport is
(i) get an Istanbulcard from the kiosk behind the bus stops at the airport
(ii) get bus 11 to the terminus at Kadikoy docks (TL 3.90)
(iii) get ferry from Kadikoy docks to Eminonu (TL 1.95)
(iv) walk 10 minutes from Eminonu to hotel or with luggage walk to tram stop and get tram to Gulhane (TL 1.25; if you find you're going the wrong direction on the tram just hop off at any stop and cross the platform .. no extra charge !) and then 2 minute walk.
There's a slightly quicker route that involves getting off bus 11 a couple of stops before the terminus [next to Carrefour] and taking the Marmaray line train to Sirkeci (TL 1.95) - but only do this if you are are certain of where you have to get off the no. 11 bus (the Marmaray line Ayrilik Cesmesi station is the other side of the Carrefour shopping complex).
Ataturk airport transit is too easy to spend time describing.

Lots of restaurants nearby, though there is better food in other (less touristy) parts of town.

Second: Spotless. Always nice in a hotel.

Third: Good buffet breakfast. Not 'great' (instant coffee is still a turnoff for me as is watered down sugared orange juice) but lots of grilled vegetables, tahini, cheeses, yoghurt, sausage, eggs, fruit, bread and more ...

Rooms are modest - small bedroom, small/medium sized bathroom with shower [good water pressure], medium sized wardrobe, fridge, no safe in room but available in hotel lobby. Polycotton sheets. I had a sixth floor corner room (605) with plenty of light and well away from any street noise but one floor up from where the lift stopped (level 5).

Room Tip: Higher rooms are further away from street noise, but note lift only goes as far as floor 5.

I stayed 3 nights in the Agan Hotel and was very happy with the service and the room. The staff was always very helpful and kind. But the best thing about the Agan Hotel would probably be the central location. I can honestly recommend this Hotel!
