Stayed one evening and hotel made series of gross offenses--first mistake was not letting my friend whose name the room was booked under, check in (how could hotel of such standard make such a gross mistake?!) She had to check into another hotel as she was told room was no longer available; causing much inconvenience. Ajia further billed my card...

Having read your comment below, we regrettably would like to state that we do not assent to the allegations in the letter below. To summarize what really happened once again: It is definitely out of question for a hotel management to prevent a guest’s check in to the room that is already booked under her name. Your friend did not...

We stayed at the beautiful A'jia Hotel after we had spend 12 days on the European side of Istanbul and in Kusadasi. For us, the location on the more quiet and serene Asian side was ideal. We did not feel disconnected because the hotel's water taxi was available to take us across the Bosphorus whenever we needed it. In fact,...

Many told us we would be staying on the "wrong side of the river" by choosing Ajia Hotel. Wrong!! It is on the Asian side and about 40 mins from the heart of the action in Istanbul and that IS A VERY GOOD THING! What a wonderful, intimate hotel; exactly what we needed after a long day of sight seeing...

Very relaxing hotel on the Bosphorous. The town of Kanlica in which it is situated is famous for it's yogurt, which is well worth trying. The hotel food is exceptional; just down the road is a restaurant serving the most memorable meal we had in Turkey (Kanlica kabob). Stylishly furnished and decorted, but showing it's age.

A wonderful hotel situated on the Bosphorus with beautiful rooms facing the Bosphorus ideal for the sunset. Friendly staff, beautiful terrace, free boat to limited destinations. Our taxi driver had a bit of a problem finding it but I think he was new to the game. The downsides were that the hotel is far away from everything unlike the major...
