Staying at Ajia was the perfect way for us to ease in to the high energy of Istanbul. Tucked away on the more residential, Asian side of this incredible city makes it a perfect oasis during your travels. The hotel is right on the Bosphorus, and our room had incredible views, was very spacious, and the bed was incredbly comfortable....

The only initial misgiving we had was that the hotel was seemingly so far from the main historical centre at Sultanahmet. However we found that a 15 minute pleasant...

We had a great time in this hotel. Perfect room, excellent restaurant, really nice staff... I guess we will try to come back later this year (to enjoy the amazing terrace on the Bosphorus which was closed during our stay (January) due to weather conditions).
