We stayed four days at the Amira and it was fantastic. The staff were spectacular!They were so gracious and warm. We were greeted by Fatih who sat with us and went over the sights and tips. It is wonderful to always be met with a smile and a "hello".
The afternoon tea was my favorite. Lots of choices to include local foods. It was beautifully laid out and delicious. The staff couldn't have been better. My husband and I own a catering company, so we recognize how great he was. Its an art to be gracious, unobtrusive and attentive all at the same time.
Breakfast was a perfect start to a day of sightseeing. Lots of options and tasty.
Our room was upgraded and we were delighted. Our balcony looked out over the Sea and we could see the beautiful mosque. The room was large, beautifully decorated and very clean. The bathroom was a treat! A heated floor was such a novelty and welcome on cool mornings. Loved relaxing in the Jacuzzi tub after a long day of walking.
And location couldn't have been better. A five to ten minute walk to the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, and Ayasofia. Lots of restaurants and shops.
It will be the place we stay when we return.
