A'Jia Hotel is a contemporary boutique hotel overlooking the grand waters of the Bosphorus, Istanbul. The impressive façade of this Ottoman mansion fronts the Asian shore and inside all is sleek, luxurious and modern. High ceilings, whites on creams and wooden flooring create a calm interior with large windows and balconies opening out to the dazzling blue waters below. Half an hour from the city centre, A'Jia is close enough to the action yet set in a more laid-back and relaxing part of town. Guests can relax in the large freestanding baths after a days exploring and shopping.
With direct access to the water from the private pier, A'Jia Hotel has its own boat which takes guests across the Bosphorus and on private tours of Istanbul. A'jia is set alongside mansions and greenery, half an hour from the bustling centre of Istanbul. Visit the impressive Kucuksu Pavilion, the Beylerbeyi Palace and the Rumeli fortress, or simply sit back on the waterside terrace with an A'Jia Apple Martini and enjoy the view. If you can withstand the chill, the winter months are a great time to visit Istanbul for shopping when the prices drop making the Grand Bazaar simply unmissable.
A'Jia Hotel's restaurant serves some of the best food we had during our visit to Istanbul and offers a modern Mediterranean menu devised by their award-winning chef. Guests can enjoy a romantic meal on the pretty terrace with views across the sea. Brunch on Sundays is a must and guests can enjoy a cool drink from the waterfront bar. Start the day with a traditional Turkish breakfast with plenty of freshly baked bread.
