All of the positive reviews that have been written about the Hotel Amira are 100% accurate!!! The rooms, the rooftop terrace, the location, the morning breakfast and afternoon tea are all superior! But, if I could give the Hotel Amira 6 stars or more, I would. When things go right, vacations are easy but how about when there's a snafu?
My daughter and I stayed at the beautiful Hotel Amira for 5 nights from August 1-6 in Room 501! The room was gorgeous and the front desk staff helped us in so many ways with restaurant recommendations, tours, directions, etc. But this morning, the hotel team went above and beyond in helping us.
We were scheduled to leave the Hotel Amira at 9am for Ataturk Airport in order to catch a noon flight. Our luggage was packed and we went downstairs for a nice leisurely breakfast prior to our departure. I quickly checked my email only to discover that our connecting flight in Frankfurt had been cancelled and United Airlines had rebooked us on a flight leaving 24 hours later!!! What a disaster! We had a wedding to attend in Florida on Friday and there was no way we were going to make our flight if we didn't get on another flight.
The front desk concierge was so helpful and called United Airlines for us. We were on the phone for almost two hours before we finally were able to find flights that worked to get us home on time. It was so nice to have this kind of assistance especially in a stressful situation!
We loved the Hotel Amira!!!
