The hotel is 18 months old and very nice.
The staff is very helpfull and very kind.
We had a welcoming drink and a briefing of what to do and where to go
Rooms are clean and very comfortable
Very nice view on marmaris sea from the terrace, where you can have a light lunch or drinks; sitting very confortably
We had no time to visit the spa.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Hotel Amira, it's a pity that our stay in Istanbul was so short. It was lovely to receive such a warm welcome from all the staff at the hotel, everyone was so helpful and friendly. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms immaculate and the roof terrace is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy the stunning views over Istanbul. We absolutely loved it! The breakfast was delicious, so much to choose from and we also very much enjoyed the complimentary afternoon tea and welcome drinks on arrival.

The excellent and efficient service made our stay at the Hotel Amira a wonderful experience and we hope to return again to enjoy the wonderful delights of this boutique hotel.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in October 2010 and were very impressed with this hotel as it was small, boutique, hip and friendly. English speaking staff was beyond helpful and the traditional Turkish breakfast (included) was one of the best I've had in all my travels. The rooms were charming with a mix of modern and traditional and very nice, updated bathrooms. The hotel was in a great location just a few minutes walk from all the historic sites, albeit a little tricky to find the first time as it's down a hill on a small side street. Make sure to check out the views from the rooftop terrace which we only found the last day of our stay.

Welcoming and warm. The staff was so friendly and helpful. When we arrived the concierge took us to the restaurant for a drink and enthusiastically talked to us about what do and see in Istanbul. The room was really nice and the hotel is charming. Good location too!

Elegant boutique hotel in great location near Blue Mosque. What really sets this hotel apart though is the fantastic service. From reservation process to advance tour planning to restaurant recommendations and directions on the fly, the front desk staff could not have been more competent, helpful and friendly.

Amira is a great example of small hotel that saves you from the impersonality and over-expense of large 5 stars. And unlike many smaller/less expensive hotels, it doesn't trim down the basics but rather offers you everything you need in an intimate environment.

It's very reasonably priced; the staff is helpful and available for information and advice; the menu is not extensive but the lunch/dinner food is as good as you'll find in many of the restaurants around (breakfast eggs not so great but other things available); the rooms are sizable and clean and the beds very comfortable; the hotel in general is clean, and there is none of that terribly perfume smell that so many hotels have these days; there is a lovely rooftop area to sit and watch the water or have a drink or meal; the location is great,close to major sights and the waterfront.

the only problem is that most or many of the rooms face the street, and it can be a noisy corner. I wore ear plugs so didn't hear anything at night, and the windows keep out much of the noise. But it's not a calm/out of the way area.

We stayed at the Amira hotel towards the end of our vacation. We loved this hotel. We loved the location as it was within walking distance to the Blue Mosque, to a bazaar and a number of cute restaurants. The rooms itself were very nice as pictured on their website. The staff was extremely helpful. The front desk person gave us advice on the taxi situation within Istanbul as my mom cannot walk around as well. He gave us his personal mobile number should we run into trouble which thankfully we did not. Next time I am in Istanbul I am staying here again.
