A group of us, making use of a special offer, spent a couple of nights in the A'jia hotel and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The hotel itself looks very nice, and I can only imagine how fantastic it must be in the summer (it has a beautiful terrace on the Bosphorus).
The rooms were nice, not out of this world, but not bad either. The bathroom was functional (although there was not enough water pressure in the shower). The daily treats were nice. The breakfast was good, if somewhat strange (but that could also be my unfamiliarity with the Turkish breakfast culture).
The one major, major downside is how far away it is from the tourist hotspots (Aya Sophia, Grand Bazar, etc). We used both taxis and water taxis and it is safe to say that the only way to go is with the water taxi.
