Where to Stay in Istanbul: Special Rates at A’jia Hotel (with Bosphorus Views!)

February 9, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

A'jia Hotel, IstanbulThe A'jia Hotel commands a prime piece of real estate in Istanbul, the city that famously straddles two continents. In a glorious setting on the Asian side of the Bosphorus, a former pasha's mansion has been converted into a sexy boutique hotel. Behind the Ottoman facade, sleek interiors showcase contemporary furnishings and all the latest technology. The 16 guest rooms-- some with private balconies-- have gorgeous water views and spacious marble bathrooms. (Note: There's one room that doesn't overlook the Bosphorus.) No surprise to see a queue of celebrities lining up to stay here. We love their complimentary boat shuttle for cruising between the continents and bypassing Istanbul's notorious traffic on the way to the Old Town for sightseeing.

Hot rates: Book the A'jia Hotel with Five Star Alliance and you'll get breakfast and tax included in your room rate. Simply select the "Five Star Alliance" rate when booking.
