A’jia Hotel, Turkey

This week a tip from our friends Mr & Mrs Smith has sent me dream-holidaying to the A’jia Hotel in Istanbul. When you look at it, you can see why!

The A’jia’s former-role was as the humble home of a pasha of the Ottoman Empire. It stands strong and pristine of the Asian shore of the Bosphorus.

“Understated palatial luxury” are how the Smiths describe it, with creamy white marble contrasted against flowing curtains, vast windows, and sleek furniture. There’s a lot to be said for minimalism in such a majestic setting.

From the A’jia you can take a water-taxi to the European side of Istanbul, or simply relax on the balcony, and enjoy the view.
