Why Stay At A'jia Hotel
The historic Ottoman mansion's location, directly on the Bosporus on Istanbul's relaxed Asian side, is complimented by the hotel's striking interior design and thoughtful service.
The A'ija Hotel, a waterfront property in Kanlica, Istanbul, is housed in an 1870s Ottoman mansion. The intimate hotel's 16 rooms and suites are elegant but minimalist—with platform beds, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and Bosporus views. Some have striking accent pieces, such as mid-century modern chairs and couches, French doors, and expansive balconies. The hotel's service is fit for a sultan: not only will all guests enjoy a complimentary Turkish breakfast and Acqua di Parma bath products, but room amenities are also tailored to vacation type—romance, leisure, business, and so on. For those interested in exploring Istanbul, the magnificent city is easily accessible thanks to the property's private water taxi. Also in-house: an award-winning Mediterranean restaurant. Though the hotel does not have a separate spa, in-room massages are available.
The Bosphorus Pasha Suite is worth the splurge for its 680-square-foot balcony and oversize bathtub.
If you fall in love with the hotel's signature scent, ask the concierge for the room perfume, which is available for purchase.
