— The location of A’jia Hotel is just amazing. Please tell me a bit about the history of the mansion.

Ersin: “Ahmet Rasim Paşa Yalısı was built at the end of the 19th century. Although the architect of the building is not known, the ampiric style and the era it belongs to lead to the assumption that it must be the work of a member of the Balyan family. The yalı is named after Ahmet Rasim Paşa (1826-1897) who lived during the regency of Sultan Abdulaziz and Sultan Abdulhamid. After it was burnt down, the yalı was rebuilt in 1898 to be sold to the Istanbul Municipality by Ahmet Rasim’s family. Following the Turkish War of Independence, it functioned as the 36th elementary school of the new Turkish Republic. In 2002 the restoration began to turn the building into a hotel and since 2005 A’jia Hotel has been hosting guests from all around the world.”

— Please tell me a bit about the architecture and interior of A’jia Hotel.

Ersin: “The building is a former Ottoman mansion which has been turned into a hotel following a number of architectural transformations highlighting its unique bosphorus view and the residential neighbourhood location. We have aimed to create a clean space that supports the exterior views by staying away from being overly ‘decorative’. This resulted in the use of just a few natural materials: stone on the floors, walls and staircases complemented by a warm type of wood. These simple materials were used both inside and outside, in the rooms and the bathrooms as well as the balconies and hallways which gives the mansion a very distinct and memorable appearance.”

— What is the philosophy or essence of your hotel?

Ersin: “We want to make our guests feel like a ‘Sultan’ in an authentic Ottoman Mansion. Our room amenities are always tailor-made according to the theme of the reservation, so we try to create different amenities if it is a honeymoon, a birthday celebration or a corporate booking.”
