Recent guest reviews
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 The only downside was the non-functioning WiFi and very outdated CD-player & Radio.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.
We were there for a wedding, which took place outside the hotel with their breathtaking view. The staff was very kind, and proactive. The food was amazing though we also loved to eat a bit everywhere in Taksim. The rooms were huge clean and OH SO comfortable. Would go back in a second !
My husband and I travelled over to Istanbul for my brother in laws wedding. We were only in the hotel for an afternoon and evening, but our experience was very positive. Our room was immaculate, the bed plenty large enough and very comfortable. Room service was prompt, and the omlette I ordered was tasty. The wedding meal was awesome and the views over the Bosporous were delightful. An exotic weekend away full of beautiful memories.
