Watch boats on the Bosphorus from your room at the waterfront Ajia Hotel, which sweetens the deal even more with complimentary Wi-Fi connections, daily newspapers and shoeshine service. With a gleaming white facade, the neoclassical Ajia Hotel dates back to 1870 and sits directly on the waterfront. Serving Mediterranean cuisine, the on-site restaurant both indoor seating and hard-to-resist tables overlooking the calm waters of the Bosphorus. Around-the-clock room service is also available. Spread over three floors, the 16 rooms and suites have hardwood floors and towering windows that let in lots of light. Beds are piled high with luxe linens, and LCD TVs have hundreds of channels. Free Wi-Fi is a thoughtful touch, as are minibars and in-room safes. Hairdryers hang in the bathrooms, which have robes and slippers at the ready. Daily newspapers are free, as is the shoeshine service. Same-day dry cleaning and laundry services come in handy. Airport shuttles, either by boat or car, are available, and parking is free. In the suburb of Kanlica, the Ajia Hotel sits on the Asian side of Istanbul. The away-from-it-all location is about 12 miles from Taksim Square; about 15 miles away is the Blue Mosque. Ataturk International Airport is 23 miles southwest, and Sabiha Gokcen International Airport is 25 miles southeast. The seaside location is the main attraction at the Ajia Hotel, but the historic building, sleek rooms and well-regarded eatery all have their aficionados.
