My $350.00 air pods went missing from the room closet. I realized after I had left the property and contacted them. Received no help. Extremely disappointed. Do not expect this from a property that billed me $1500.00 for 3 nights. Expected safety and security.

We recently stayed at the AJWA and we would recommend staying here. Very convenient for the main attractions, staff very friendly, rooms were to a high standard. I'd say the picture is deceptive as the hotel is smaller than the picture but if you are after a boutique hotel in a good location then this is a good option.

Super staff and attentive service. They go above and beyond to make sure the guests have all they need to have a happy and smooth vacation. Special thanks to Volkan, who made extra effort to help me solve the problem with the tour I had booked via tour company. Will definitely stay again next time to Istanbul.

Property grounds are beautiful, staff very friendly. Very hard to get taxi with traffic, tube about 10 minute walk. Our bathroom smelled like sewage the whole stay so it was a little off putting especially for the price we paid.
