This was a beautiful property. Convenient location within walking distance to all of old Istanbul, luxurious amenities, and the nicest most courteous staff. They even brought us two slices of chocolate cake to help us Americans celebrate the Fourth of July LOL. The furniture was beautiful and the hotel was filled with mother of pearl inlay, silk rugs, and beautiful Turkish tiles. The set of rooms was a little small for a family of four but nobody really cared. This is my first “non beach/pool” vacation with my 2 young sons (9 and 11) and so to help with the transition to this more museum/historical sites type trip I decided to pick a hotel that had a pool. They loved it. I did sightseeing in the daytime and they crashed in the pool pretty much from 5 PM till dinner. My husband thought it was on the small side but the boys did not complain at all. They thought the size was just fine and they are both part of our local swim team so that was good enough for me. The only negative I can think of is that the pool and spa amenities are gender segregated. (This is a Muslim country after all.) You can purchase a private hour of time for the whole family to reserve the entire spa and pool for personal use but we were out seeing the sights and couldn’t be bothered to do this. If I’m ever lucky enough to return to Istanbul I would love to stay at this hotel again.

We LOVED the Ajwa! The staff is lovely and accommodating, the restaurant is wonderful and the room was impeccable. The Ajwa is in a great location to see all the sights of Sultanahmet. You can walk right from the front door of the hotel to explore the neighborhood. This is now one of our favorite hotels - and we travel frequently all over the world.

Great location excellent staff and service. Spa was amazing!

Excellent facilities and room comfort. Gorgeous bathroom with blue tiled shower. Comfortable bed and a wonderful pillow menu. Room very clean and plenty of towels. Breakfast amazing with tons of choices. I will definitely stay here on my next visit to Istanbul.

From the time we arrived to the time we left, all the time we spent at the hotel was superb. All staff members try their best to make you feel pampered and cared for. They are very attentive to any and every request irrespective of time.

First class treatment from hotel staff. All major sights are within 10 minute walk from the hotel. They provide complimentary mini bar and dessert every night. Every time we asked for something, they provided within 5 minutes and for free. Great welcome reception, too with complimentary Turkish coffee and dates.
