Ajia Hotel - Special Class

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel location and the view is very good. Offers a possibility to have a very nice walk by the seaside. Close to nice fish restaurants by the bosphorus. Kanlıca Uskumru / SunaAbla etc. We stayed in a sea view room with a terrace. The ambience and decoration of the hotel is average. We were expecting a much better ( may be more stylish) decorated room with newer furnitures from this unique Waterside Hotel, and this was a disappointment for us. The breakfast was nice. However there was not any egg or omelete included which should be. Nevertheless it was a nice experience by the magnicifent Bosphorus !

After reading a review in a NatGeo article about the top 10 ice-cream places in the world, I decided to go to Ajia. After an arduous ordeal I arrived. Tired and underdressed everyone treated me nicely and I went in a room with soothing music and a breathtaking view to the Bosphorus. I had a Caesar salad, which I recommend, and later on the much desired ice-cream. They lack a variety of flavours so I asked the waiter to bring me a random assortment. I got vanilla, chocolate and milk. The consistency and texture of the ice-cream was excellent but as to flavour, I must set the chocolate scoop way ahead the other two. Bear in mind I don't usually like this flavour and I never ask for it. I recommend going and if you can stay at the hotel, even better.

Very delicately located like a perl necklace on the Asian side bosphorus. A bit out of the way with repect to historical sites but what a way to enjoy Bosphorus. You can take a stroll in a relatively calm and quiet environment. The restaurant is also good and the hotel offers a shuttle service with their boat which is an excellent way to move around without getting into the never ending traffic.

A great property with friendly staff and they know English well, a pleasant away from city hustle. provides great Turkish breakfast and food at the restaurant was good. sitting outside watch passing ships is an extra benefit staying here. if you have to visit European side or downtown quite often avoid staying here to save time in traffic or use boat on Bosphorus to reach across.

a beautiful hotel in a building that seems to be an old mansion, we stayed in one of the mezzanine deluxe room, which was really nice (maybe better shade would have been great), with a great team, BUT if you want to travel to the European side at the wrong team, it will be a nightmare, and the hotel is missing a pool area to be able to cool down. otherwise it´s a great place.

The hotel is an historic Ottoman Yali right on the Bosphorus in Kanlıca. The location is just lovely. The rooms are very spacious with high ceilings and windows, the bed was pretty comfortable. The jacuzzi was a plus which functioned pretty good. We also enjoyed having our breakfast by the sea. The only downside was the non-functioning WiFi and very outdated CD-player & Radio. I would have expected an updated smart phone deck or etc ( not that I'm keen on technology , that CD player just didn't match the room). If you want to have a romantic weekend with Bosphorus view this hotel is a pretty good one. Hotel doesn't have a SPA but they do organise a massage session in your room if you ask in advance. I

We stayed at this hotel with family twice. Both times they had a wedding in their outdoor area so we couldn't access it as it was closed and very noisy till late at night. The rooms are not that nice unless you book the ones facing the Bosphorus with a balcony, then you can enjoy the view and feeling very close to the water. Service is generally slow and hotel corridors are often messy with trays/trollies lying around. The food is acceptable, nothing special. All in all, as a guest you don't feel like you're staying in a luxurious hotel. Theres not much you take back with you than some nice views which are available at other 5 star hotels on the Bosphorus charging similar rates with better service and more facilities.

From the moment our car was swiftly parked by the valet service, through selflessly kind reception staff to the designer room with the bosphorus view, everything was glorious. We spent the afternoon in the restaurant patio, listening to jazz bossanova and watching the ships go by. It's possibly the smoothest memory from what otherwise is a very busy and hectic city. I recommend the A'jia without a single doubt!

We went to have just a coffee next to the breeze. Amazing location but they do not know what "café freddo" means . They brought cafe Americano on ice. Unacceptable for such a place. You have to visit this place even for the access to Bosphorus. Boats are crossing in front of you.. almost you may touch them

Ajia hotel is not very big and not expected large but very unique and special. You can spend very classy and unforgetable nights and dinners. Wonderfull bosphorus view welcomes you first and then you cannot look anything else.
