If I just happened to be lucky enough (which I am not) to be jetting off to Istanbul for the weekend there would be no better place to stay than the A’jia Hotel. This luxury boutique hotel of only 16 rooms is housed in a traditional Ottoman Mansion from the 19th century perched on the Asian edge of the Bosphorus.
Blending traditional and modern design the hotel is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul, not to mention that the views are stunning. Each room is decorated in a different style which is a welcome relief from the larger hotels. With an emphasis on simplified luxury the modern décor of the hotel is in perfect harmony with the historical exterior.
