Injecting style, colour and sophistication into the Historical Peninsula of Istanbul, the five-star boutique Ajwa Hotel Sultanahmet, is an exclusive experience in the heart of the Old City.
Ajwa Hotel Sultanahmet is the first hotel within the Ajwa brand. An artistic masterpiece, the property perfectly combines some of the most exquisite elements to represent ‘Old Istanbul’ in a uniquely luxurious and modern setting.
Boasting 61 rooms spread across nearly 7,000 square metres, the fully Halal property offers panoramic views of the Old Town and the Sea of Marmara. Throughout the guest rooms and public spaces, Ajwa Hotel Sultanahmet elegantly incorporates artisan elements in every detail: carvings made by Topkapi restorers, wooden and mother of pearl ornaments, created by a Syrian craftsman, handmade furniture, precious Tabriz silk carpets, valuable paintings by Azerbaijani artists, Seljuk and Ottoman inspired architecture, immaculate marble work and intricately handcrafted Iznik tiles.
Sedat Nemli, General Manager of Ajwa Hotel Sultanahmet, says: “The Ajwa Hotel Sultanahmet is truly a one-of-a-kind property that perfectly merges old school elegance with a stylish modern twist. We wanted to offer guests something they’ve never experienced before - a glimpse of the past while living in the luxury of today. With the fine attention-to-detail, exclusive setting and prime location, the property is quickly establishing itself as a must-visit location in Istanbul.”
Turkish hospitality at its best
The guest rooms comprise family rooms and deluxe rooms, which welcome guests with walnut wood furniture and top-quality, colour fabric wallpapers. The bathrooms are adorned with elements such as tiles inspired by Mimar Sinan’s mosques, and fountains with ceramic basins and marble sinks. Corner suites, decorated in shades of purple, lilac, mauve and sea green perfectly reflect the cherished history of Istanbul with Seljuk motifs and relaxed Ottoman seating.
The 120 square metre ‘Sultan Suite’ is the ultimate representation of elegant tastes of the past beautifully moulded with the present. A grand dining area, coupled with a living area, master bedroom, and bathroom with jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and shower area, provide the epitome of luxury in an authentic Turkish setting. No detail is left unturned - from quaint ornaments on wooden cabinets, to immaculate marble work and ornate furnishings.
