Gem in the area
This was a lovely boutique style hotel. Service was excellent, hotel was clean, breakfast was good but variety is slightly less. Concierge service was very effective. The room was spacious yet cosy. Bed was very comfortable, Bathroom was well designed with toiletries and everything you need. I loved my stay, it is 5 min walk to Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar. I will definitely be back.

Amazing Ajwa
This hotel was stunning. The architecture, the staff, the area, everything was perfect. It was very central but still very private. All our needs were taken care of. I cannot recommend this hotel enough!

True 5 star luxury propertg
A great 5 star luxury hotel. From check in the experience was great. We got to the hotel early and was given our room immediately, no issues with an early check-in. Also got a complimentary room upgrade which was a nice gesture. The mini bar is complementary too which is a first we have experienced at any 5 star. The front office manager was always at hand to be of any assistance. Ajwa dates and water is a terrific touch at the entrance. The room furnishings were of high quality and in excellent condition. Overall a fantastic experience and great value.

Best Hotel in Istanbul

Best hotel in Istanbul!!
This is a fantastic hotel! Everyone at the hotel is extremely nice, hospitable and wonderfully professional. From the moment we entered we were greeted with such respect, and were in awe with the aesthetics of the hotel. It is decorated with a really traditional Turkish feel, and the hotel, from the lobby to the room and the bathroom, is always kept extremely clean. We particularly loved the little amenities we were given throughout our stay like the dates to greet us. They even offered transportation to the main square in the old city. Nevertheless, the location is perfect for seeing everything in old city, including the blue mosque and grand bazaar which are within walking distance. Anyone visiting Istanbul should stay at this hotel!!

great luxury hotel
If you want luxury then this is the place to be. A lot of effort has gone into the architectural marble work and design from the lobby right through to the rooms. The only snag I had was the gym and spa times were separate for men and women so never got a chance to enjoy any of this as the timing for men was from 3 pm till the evening, which during a brief holiday one is expected to be out in the city. They should either have more flexible timings or separate facilities built for both sexes.

Awesome service, beyond expectations!
I have no words to describe, every person in the hotel is so nice, I would say true spirit of “Musafir” traveller was taken by all means, this was my second trip to Istanbul and in Ajwa as well, I got service this time even more excellent than last time infact even last time I had excellent experience, in Turkey due to tourist city you are always under trap, but in this hoteI found everyone not even helping but rather treating you special and you feel safe and confident, wonderful thanks and definitely gonna stay next time as well,
