We stayed at the Amira during early November 2010. This well situated, spotlessly clean hotel is run by an extremely professional yet friendly staff who speak impeccable English. Their attention to detail in ensuring an enjoyable stay was highly appreciated. We arrived with nothing to change into due to a baggage delay and they immediately supplied us with nappies for our toddler (which they didn't charge us for), and gave us directions to the most appropriate shopping centre for our immediate clothing needs.
The room was beautifully cleaned every day and everything we could have possibly needed was arranged for us, including a lovely cruise on the Bosphorus, good old city sightseeing, with map directions and transport recommendations and lots of little extras. They were very kind to our two year old son and made a big fuss of him and generally made us feel as if we were very welcome in Turkey. The only negative thing I would draw attention to is their restaurant recommendations- we were recommended to go to a fish restaurant named Balikci Sabattini which was overpriced and overrated.
