My wife and I stayed at this yali in Istanbul for our anniversary. We stayed in the Bosporus Terrace Room, which had a fantastic view of the Bosporus. It is minimally decorated and had the most comfortable bed - it was one of the best nights sleep we had in years while living in Istanbul. We had dinner in the... More

The hotel is housed in a magnificent antique wood building by the famous Bosphorus. You can observe the sea gulls and boats passing by and the changes of color from your room or from the sitting area. We had a simply decorated yet elegant room, with comfortable bed with all the amenities. The restaurant was fantastic, food delicious and service... More

A lovely hotel, rooms are a great size, we had a balcony over looking the Bosporus and it was stunning - if you can secure one of these rooms. It doesn't have a spa or indoor pool but it is very peaceful, the staff are not imposing and you can completely relax. I certainly want to return for longer and... More

This is the worst "hotel" I've ever been, if you can call this a hotel... One night they just locked the door and close the hotel, because the receptionist decided to go to sleep, it was cold and rainy outside and in the middle of nowhere , had to knock in every window, till sleepy receptionist came out... After 45... More

This is not an ordinary 5 star hotel. If you are expecting a Spa center, an indoor pool ect, you are in the wrong place. Ajia is a perfectly located butique hotel. Quiet, calm and has the perfect scenery. Away from İstanbul's traffic & crowd. We stayed at he roof with bosporus view. Breathtaking. You should consider staying all day... More

Beautiful location right on the Bosporus, clean rooms, best rooms are the ones with balconies. Its not as luxurious as it should be, there were weddings both nights we stayed so we couldn't access the outdoor terrace in the evening. The service is a bit slow and sometimes they don't understand what you need but the staff is kind and... More

This 3+ hotel charged me 280 EUR for a standard room next to a street with pretty much traffic. Staff barely speaks English, no isolation - you here the phone ringing at the reception, no lights in the room so it becomes really tricky for the ladies to put on their make up and poor design. Only positive thing is... More

This charming hotel located on the waterfront offers spectacular views of Bosphorus. We spent one night with my wife (wedding anniversary), enjoyed the dinner, breakfast and watching the ships passing by in front of the terrace of our room. The service is fairly good too. Nice place for a romantic escape.

Stayed there one time for my birthday (terrace room), the service was amazing and the view was breathtaking.. It is a bit far away from the city but they have a lobster (small boat) and you can use it for having a transfer to the european part of the city, where it is more lively. I also had my wedding...

The rooms on the bosphore are the best eapecialy on the first floor. The staff are friendly. The only problem in the hotel is the sound of music when there is a wedding in the hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable.
