From start to finish, our stay at the Amira was fantastic.
The room was spotless with a really comfortable bed and well appointed bathroom. Everything you'd expect to find was there.
Breakfast was very good but if I were to get really picky, the hot food could have been hotter. That said, the selection was good and varied day to day.
The roof terrace is definitely a lovely place to have a beer in the evening.
The best part about this place though - the staff. Without exception they were helpful and attentive without being over bearing.
I'm rubbish with names so the only one I can remember is Fatih. He met us on arrival and while we sipped on a drink he got the map out to give us a few pointers. A very valuable 10 minutes I can tell you.
I phoned them the day before we flew to arrange collection from the airport and we were met by a 34 seat coach for 2!
And by the way, 5 minutes to the Blue Mosque, another 5 to Agya Sofia and a further 5 to Topkapi. Brilliant!
As I said, if I ever return to Istanbul - this is where I'm staying.
