The staff at Hotel Amira were incredibly nice, welcoming and helpful. They provided us with directions, restaurant recommendations (really good ones) and reservations, umbrellas when it rained, advice on things to do, all in a very gracious manner. To me, that makes all the difference. The hotel is spotlessly clean and nicely decorated (unless you don't like red). The breakfast was very good and had sufficient variety and good quality, but nothing to write home about. We enjoyed the afternoon tea as well. It's not a grand hotel with a big lobby to hang out in, but a smallish hotel that is small enough to provide the right amount of attention to its guests, but not so small that you feel like you're in somebody's home. The location is very good, just a few blocks uphill to many of the sights. The bed was comfortable. Our room was smallish, but it was fine for our needs with a big bed that was fairly comfortable, a nice tv, good lighting, big windows. The bathroom was quite small, but adequate, and had a tub and nice toiletries. It needed a touch of regrouting.
