I paid extra for a street view and we got a building view. Room 204 does not have a street view because it has a concrete alley from previous floor that covers your view. Hotel should be more careful. No free water. On the other hand the room is very nice and the service is a five stars service. Location is perfect. Lots of good rest near by. Very close to Bazaar.

Ajwa is an outstanding hotel, very clean and comfortable. It is without doubt one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Every one without exception was a true example of excellent hospitality: from front desk staff, concierge staff, restaurant staff, cleaning staff.... They went above and beyond to make sure we have the best vacation in Istanbul. On our arrival, our baggage was delayed-The concierge staff helped track our luggage and expedited the delivery. They provided us with emergency/survival kit. They made our stay more interesting with their helpful advice and tips about Istanbul. If you stay at Ajwa, make sure to experience their delicious Azerbaijani food at Zaafaran restaurant with its breathtaking view and excellent hospitality. We will definitely come back and I would highly recommend Ajwa to family and friends.
