Explore An Artisanal Gem In Istanbul, Ajwa Hotel Sultanahmet

Located in the heart of Istanbul’s Old City, an artisanal gem, the Ajwa Hotel Sultanahmet offers guests a unique opportunity to experience the rich past of Turkey, in a sophisticated and stylish modern setting.

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 sixty-one 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.”

Providing a setting for guests to experience layers of history and savour old-world splendour, Ajwa Hotel Sultanahmet is the only dry luxury hotel in Istanbul.

Opened early 2017, the five-star boutique hotel perfectly reflects the refined taste of the past in a classic and sophisticated present setting.
