“Great hotel, real gem”
Reviewed 6 February 2011

This is a great hotel, boutique style, small and personal with great service. In stayed there for 3 nights, we had a large room with two double beds and big bathroom. Room was clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Rate included a lovely breakfast buffet, everything was fresh and hand made. In the afternoon, you can pop in for a complimentary tea or coffee and cake, homemade cake, always a winner! In fact on our last day before going to the airport, we did some work in the cafe area and they served us cappuccinos, cake and the Turkish coffee all on the house... Really nice touch! Location is great, very close to the Blue Mosque, Ayasofya and other attractions. On the roof there is a nice terrace with lovely views across Istanbul, would be lovely in Spring and Summer. Neighbourhood is really nice, lots of restaurants and cute shops in the surrounding area. Overall this is a lovely hotel, would recommend and will definitely return...

I read glowing reviews of Amira before deciding to stay and the reviews are pretty accurate.
Excellent location but a few minutes walk to the tram.
Hotel decor is funky, modern and the free wifi is greatly appreciated.
The staff is a delight and other reviews are not exagerated. They are truly warm and friendly.
Highly recommended and I have stayed in a whole range of hotels around the world from the finest 5 star hotels, beautiful boutique hotels to scary hotels in India.
Go enjoy Amira and the richness of the culture and history of Istanbul.

I've enjoyed my stay at Hotel Amira. The service was superb with a fantastic staff[everyone is smiling and always courteous]. The location is great, a very short distance to the blue mosque, hagia sophia, and Topkapi Palace. It is located at sultanahmet which has incredible restaurants(e.g. khorasani, sarnic(authentic ottoman)) and you can even walk to the grand bazaar and about 3 or 4 short tram stops to the spice market at eminonu.
also, the hotel has excellent spa&message service. Once you book it, you get a relaxed message with sauna&jacuzzi reserved for you....We've particularly enjoyed this service especially after walking all day around the town and exploring different parts of istanbul.

Our stay our the Hotel Amira, Istanbul was without words, one of the best trips ever. It had to do with the Hotel staff and hospitality. The location is great (walking diatance to most points of interest) and the taxi station is jsut across the street if you need a taxi. The hotel is a great Boutique Hotel with only stories and a roof top terrace. But the staff makes this place "the" place to stay. The rooms area very nice and comfortable and large comparing European hotels. The buffet breakfast lets you start your day off in style. We had the staff make out boat cruise and turkish bath reservations. They were very helpful in suggesting all types of acitivites and points of interest to see. We highly recommend this hotel to all of our friends and other individuals wanting a nice and reasonable place to stay. They get a "thumbs up" in my book. Sincerely,
