I have already stayed few times at this hotel and I have a brilliant stay every time.
Great location - as it is centrally located to all main attractions in Istanbul.
The room was very comfortable and clean, planty of towels in the bathroom which was lovely and warm. The buffet breakfast was also always very tasty. The staff was excellent, extreI mely friendly and helpful. Everything was perfectly arranged.
I admire your full professionalism. CONGRATULATIONS!
I definitely stay there again.

I came recently from my trip to Istanbul. I highly recommend this hotel. The room was clean and very comfortable. The location was excellent, it was close to everything. The price was perfect, and the breakfast which was included , was very good. The staff was always very helpful and kind. I definitely will stay in Hotel Agan, the next time I visit Istanbul.

It really would be difficult to find fault with this hotel. It's evidently been renovated in the recent past, and although you wouldn't call the rooms especially spacious, they're well appointed and perfectly comfortable. Satellite TV and air con. in the rooms. The hotel is just 2 mins. from Gülhane tram station, so very easy to get to from Atatürk International Airport using cheap public transport. Breakfast is ample, and there's loads of hot water. Staff are very helpful - they all speak English. I stayed for a week, and during that time had clean towels every day and the bed sheets changed twice. Sure, there's some street noise in the evenings, but this is Istanbul - if you want silence, find a nice Trappist monastery somewhere. :-) All in all, excellent value. Highly recommended, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there another time.

I booked a single room there June, arrived and asked to change to a twin as I discovered my son was also arriving to Istanbul later that day, he was on his overseas trip. They changed my single to a triple, for only 15 Euros a night extra, I was staying 2 nights. This is very comparable to a hostel rate in the area, so for 15euros extra my boy had a good bed, the room was comfortable, big double and a single bed, tele, excellent shower room, AIR CONNED!!! and free bath stuff and slippers provided.
Room was cleaned every day, breakfast, which was included, was a good buffet. Hotel has free internet and is local to attractions and the docks as to get to Taksim, Istanbul centre.

I would def recommend this hotel to anyone, for the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the locations.

Two tips I have for people staying at the Agan

1: From airport don't get taxi or shuttle bus, which can cost up to 20euros. Get the metro (M1) to Zeytinburnu, about 6/7 stops. All trams and transport uses tokens, which costs 1.5 Turkish liras, and you can get this at every station via the vending machines. At Zeytinburnu, change to tram line, I think it was T2, that goes to Gulhane. Get off there out the gate at the back, 1st street on right walk down to 3rd turning on right and hotel is there, about 300m from the stop. 3 Turkish Liras was about 1.5 Euros at the time compared to 20 Euros by taxis.

2: Don't have dinner in the area round the hotel. All the restaurants serves the same foods and charges about the same money. Instead, eat up in Taksim, which you get to by the same tram you came in on, across the bridge. Up there, where all the night clubs/bars/shopping are, you’ll find a better choice of foods, much better atmosphere and here's the important thing, usually 1/3 to up to 1/2 the price you pay in the restaurants round the hotel.

The above 2 tips are, of course, my views only and it is recommended you try others out.

But 100% I would recommend the hotel to anyone! Happy travelling all!! :)

I had booked and payed 1 month before. Yet at check-in was informed they did not have a room for me. They had the booking in the system, knew my name etc. They just didnt have my room. I asked for my money back. They wouldnt. Crazy since I had a crystal clear receipt for my Hotels.com payment and they acknowledged this. Eventually, I ended up staying in "their other hotel" just down the road.

Both room and bathroom was tiny (not just small, it was tiny). It was pretty mediocre but had it only been cleaned properly it would have been OK for me considering the price of 40 EUR a night and that I spent only my sleeping hours in there. The "free" breakfast was really bad.

Location is great for the old city and also possible to walk cross the bridge and further on to the long pedestrian street. Noice was a problem though. Especially Thursday night until 3:30 people roamed around inside the hotel and people drinking outside hotel.

Surprise surprise - when I cheked out they were hassling me for payment. I explained, they asked for payment again, I explained again etc. Eventually I suggested that they if they were calling me a thief they should call the police, then I walked out.

First of all we are very for making one of our guests unhappy and also for this review. We had a problem about electricity in our hotel on 3rd of June and we could not solve the problem in one day.Because of this reason we made reservation for some of our guests to a 3 star hotel and we payed the difference.

Excellent hotel in a perfect location for Istanbul sightseeing. All the main atractions are very close, around 5 minutes walking distance. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The area is filled with nice restaurants, and there are 2 tram stations very close (Sirkeci and Gulhane) - the tram is the main public transport way in Istanbul.
When I'll come back to Istanbul, I think I'll stay at this hotel again.
