“Don't stay anywhere else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

My husband and I recently visited Istanbul and stayed at Hotel Amira. We were highly impressed with the hotel, room, the staff, and breakfast. Everything about the hotel was first class and the staff are very professional and helpful. My husband was very sick when we arrived and someone from the hotel ran to a nearby pharmacy to get medicine for him. We so appreciated all the little things that made this hotel stay uniquely pleasant and enjoyable. We went to almost every restaurant and hamam the hotel recommended and they were all spectacular. Stay here when you go to Istanbul - you won't regret it!

The location is excellent, service by the helpful staff is great, the design and decoration of the rooms is quirky (in a positive way) and the roof top bar is sensational. Another positive is how quiet the rooms are - the area is pretty quiet overnight, but the rooms were refreshingly silent on all four nights we stayed. The only criticism (and they're hard to find) is the lack of storage space in the bathroom -good sized, but inadequate shelving. Top marks Amira!

We stayed at this hotel after our cruise. We were not able to check in until noon but the hotel reception staff was very helpful and provide us with maps & bus tokens to immediately start sightseeing. This hotel is only a few blocks from all the major sites. When we were able to check into the room we were happy with all the amenities plus the bathroom also sported a jacuzzi. Their breakfast buffet the next morning was extensive with juice, meat, cheese, cereal, eggs, bread & sweet rolls, etc. The hotel has a lovely roof top bar with a beautiful view. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.

The hotel was lovely, great location, good sized rooms and a roof terrace with a great view. It was the staff that really made the difference though, they really helped us get the most out of our few days in Istanbul by suggesting tours, restaurants and other highlights of the city. Thoroughly recommend it and we'll be back.b

For value and convenience, cannot be beat. Great breakfast included. Nice rooftop terrace for evenings. Decent room size, moderate comfort and amenities relative to a luxury hotel. We generally stay in the upper level hotels everywhere and this compares well even with these. It's not the Four Seasons, but it is a third the cost. As boutique hotels go, this is top notch.
The very best tip I can share is to hire a local guide by the name of Erkan ("Air-kahn"). Fantastic knowledge of the area and history, good English, and passionate about his town. He used to work for a tour company called Bitinya but can now be hired privately. Find him on TripAdvisor. Worth every penny to save time, avoid crowds and lines and to see the not-so-touristy, real Istanbul.

We had a wonderful welcome; taken to the rooftop terrace for a drink and we were given good information about the sights and the restaurants.
We enjoyed the complimentary afternoon tea each day . Breakfasts were beautifully served with plenty of choice.
Our room was spacious, clean and stylishly furnished. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful.
This is a hotel we will recommend to friends and family

This hotel is located in the heart of Sultanamet a short walk from the Blue Mosque, Saint-Sophie, Topkapi... witch is perfect if you want to be the first in line in the morning to visit these very busy sites.
The room we had was very nicely decorated, impeccable. The staff is all so helpful and attentive; the airport transfers right on time. One thing to know is that the roof top view of the Blue Mosque is partly obstructed. If you want a splendid view of the Mosque: have a romantic dinner at Rami.
Overall, you can not be at all disappointed with this hotel.
