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... More

The Hotel has a great potential but needs to be refreshed. She staff is very friendly and the location blows you away. If the location would be so n ice I would gove a star less I would recommend this place for a romantic stay in Istambul. Thank again

Expected a far better experience at this hotel that occupies a most beautiful spot right by the bosphorous. First, hotel interior is below average, at best a 4 star look and feel. Poor reception/lobby area that has no character whatsoever. The room is large and the bathroom is huge but again lack style and look more like a decent motel... More

This hotel is really stunning and its terrace on to the Bosphorus is outstanding. Some rooms are a little small but even they look into that Bosphorus view. Food and service a bit hit and miss but well worth staying here

We were treated to a night here as part of our friends' wedding and it was lovely. The hotel's setting right on the Bosphorus was unique, we didn't have to worry about transport as the couple had organised a bus and when we left, we just took the hotel's water taxi and then a taxi from the other side.
