Good to know
You’re 40 minutes by cab from the Old City and its sights – so allow time for Istanbul’s notorious traffic.
16 rooms and suites.
Rooms have kingsize beds, goose feather pillows, multi-channel flatscreen TVs, a DVD player, safe, aircon, wi-fi and luxury toiletries. Most have Bosphorus views. Five of the Deluxe rooms have a private balcony while three suites are split level with a bathtub by the bed. Many rooms have jacuzzi baths.
Splash out in the sprawling Pasha suite, or take one of the mezzanine suites with their sleeping gallery and bedside bathtub for two.
Eat & Drink
The views alone from A’Jia’s waterside restaurant – a real treat on summer evenings – are reason enough to stay here. If it’s too cool for al fresco dining, the vista is almost as good from inside the chic restaurant. Look forward to a modern Mediterranean menu with an accent on Italian cuisine. Turkish flavours blend with Mediterranean classics to create mouth-watering mains such as five spiced duck and caramelized rib of beef. Kick off the evening with a cocktail on the glamorous terrace bar.
Breakfast (considered by some the best in Istanbul) is served until midday. A'Jia's take on the traditional Turkish breakfast features a beautifully served mezze of local cheeses, olives, fruit and fresh pastries.
Available 24 hours.
See & Do
Don’t miss the blockbuster sights in Sultanahmet, the Old City. Istanbul's jewels include the signature Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the Topkapi Palace, with its opulent harem. Look down over the city and the boat-filled Bosphorus from the Galata Tower, explore the trendy bars and galleries of downtown Beyoglu, or try a real Turkish bath at Cagaloglu Hamami. Explore the local village of Kanlica, with its timbered mansions and waterside parks. For a day out of town, take a ferry to te Prince's islands, and ride around in a horse and buggy.
Thai-style massage can be arranged in your room. Spa lovers should head to one of the many hammams in town for an authentic Turkish bath experience.
Istanbul International Jazz festival is one of the biggest gigs in the world, attracting musicians from all over the world.
