Amisos Hotel

Reviewed 30 May 2011

Front desk manager Ozan, spoke excellent English and was most helpful. Rooms were not large , but for a central spot close to the TopKapi Palace and Blue Mosque etc it did the job. English sports bar ( various TV screens) next door lively and quite pricey.

Amisos Hotel saved us from a terrible hotel and the cold Istanbul streets when we arrived with no booking. The helpful staff managed to accommodate us for 6 nights in 3 separate rooms which was greatly appreciated given the very busy time of year. The rooms were each small but comfortable, warm and brightly coloured and the location is perfect right on the tram line. The noise issues are also not what they are made out to be by other reviewers who are obviously much more sensitive in that regard than I am! The pub downstairs is owned/managed by Fatih from Galipoli and he takes special care of Aussies who want to watch their sport. Rates are also very reasonable given the location in the heart of the tourist area. Thanks Amisos, we'll see you again soon I hope.

This hotel was the poor performer in a lovely trip to Turkey. While the breakfast lady and one of the receptionists were lovely, unfortunately everything else let them down.

Situated above a bar, the North Shield we had to ask hotel staff twice for the bar to turn down the sub-woofer beat shaking the hotel walls.

Arriving at breakfast at 9.30, most of the breakfast choices were finished with the breakfast ladies replacement even unwilling to replenish even the orange juice! Only one glass was left for the rest of the juice.

When using the bar the waiter blatantly short changed us. When queried the bill came back changed with only half the changed owed in small change coins making it difficult to count. When I complained the owner said to call the police. When I complained to the hotel reception they said they could do nothing as it was a different business. Given they have them on internal phones and many drinkers use the hotel lobby I find this hard to believe.

The attempt to sell us a 60 euro cab to the Airport (it's only 40 lira or 18 euros in one of Istanbuls taxis) topped off the service.

To describe this as a boutique hotel is wrong. Boutique requires careful service.

Room Tip: don't

I stayed at Amisos Hotel and really enjoyed my stay - I was only in Istanbul for one night and needed something centrally located and affordable. There are many hotels near that location and I am glad I chose Amisos. They checked me in quickly, woke me up the next morning and arranged for my taxi to the airport. Yes, the rooms are a little on the smaller side but they are beautifully decorated and the bathroom is very clean with nice amenities. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

We first decided to stay at the Amisos because of it's location...( there is an AMAZING, must see, rug shop just around the corner called Arsah Carpets that we do a lot of buying from) but once we got upstairs it's charm took over and became our favorite hotel in the area!!
The rooms are very funky but elegant at the same time. We stayed in the "Black Room" and loved every minute of it. The bed was huge and comfy... and most importantly CLEAN! The rooms have windows that open up to the street below, which made for some great people watching and photo opps. The Amisos staff are wonderful... one night in particular we asked if they had an extra converter for our camera charger.. they didn't so he went and bought us one... at 10PM!!!! They serve a little buffet breakfast on the roof top.. it was always fresh and tasty... but what really made it great was the lady serving it... she made my morning!!! Having the Tram station just outside was great... got us everywhere we needed to go... and dropped us right at the door at the end of the night. We will definitely be staying at the Amisos again on our next Turkey trip!!

We have stayed 3 nights in this hotel with my boyfriend and were not satisfied with the size of the room (there was not enough space for 2 persons to move, the bed was big enough, but the DeLuxe room was too small ), noisy road below (we were to keep the window always closed). It was written abt free wi-fi, but even if you have the password it is impossible to connect from your room. You need to go downstairs to connect to the network of another hotel. Moreover, the receptionist promised to help us to solve the problem and come to our room to assist, but we were waiting for 3,5 hours and nobody came. I think, they knew abt inet problems quite well. There is no free drinking water, tea or coffee in the room, as well as no price list for mini bar (when you check out they just tell you any price). We faced a problem with air-condition: it was very warm inside and outside, it was impossible to sleep with the openned window, but the air-condition was working as heater. We called for assistance and got the reply that you may get cool air in summer only!!!
Last drop was when I asked for a cup of coffee (at 06.30 am, as we were to leave early, and breakfast starts at 7 am). The receptionist told me that I should pay extra. Ok, even if I cannot understand what was the reason, cos we refused from breakfast and asked just for one cup of coffee. Even for extra my coffee was not ready in the morning.
As pluses I should mention the location and very clean rooms.

Dear Sir / Madam;

Thank you very much for your comments. These will be so helpfull for us to improve our service better.

- Room sizes has been given the tour operators for our guests information. And also you can see the rooms on our web page in real sizes.

- This information is also the same with the road and tram. Normally you do not hear any voices because our all rooms has double glazed.

- The internet had a problem with the access point on you floor and solved the day after you are correct. However, the wireless connection downstairs is not belong to another hotel, it is also belong to our property but the name is different only.

- There is a price list ON the minibars on left.

- You are absolutely correct with the air condition. On the period you have accomodate, we had a problem with our main terminal however, it has solved in only one day.

- We will check with our receptionist for the coffee reason. We never charge for that and also if the guest informs us the day before, we prepare a free sandwiches.

Hope to see you in the future once again that you can see every changes and let us your comments.

Best Regards,

I had a lovely stay at The Boutique Amisos Hotel from June 26 to July 4, 2010. The staff was so helpful and so friendly. The gentlemen at the front desk always made me feel welcome and offered to help me with directions and phone calls (the two things I needed help with the most). The lady who worked in the cafe during breakfast was so interesting to talk to and full of advice and enthusiasm for Istanbul. Everyone was willing to speak to me in English regardless or how little or how much they knew.

My room was beautifully decorated and perfectly clean. I felt like a princess staying there.

I hope to return to Istanbul again in June, 2011 for business. If so, I will definitely stay at the Boutique Amisos Hotel.
