We stayed at the Amiral Palace during off season. We have NEVER stayed anywhere as comfortable, friendly and caring for guests. Metin the concierge treated us like family. Our room was spacious, quiet, and very comfortable. The one time the heat didn't work due to building updates we were immediately given a space heater. The next day the central heat... More

We stayed there for 7 nights from 22-30 December. Best decision we ever made. This quaint hotel is located within walking distance of Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque. Freezing weather but still a very pleasant walk. The hotel arranged our day tour on the Bosphorus and also got us tickets to Whirling Dervish Show. They have numerous tours and activities... More

Moreover, the location of this hotel is very great, since it locates near the blue mosque and ayasofia. It's a wonderful hotel to choose for your trip in Istanbul

We arrived very late at night after a long day and bus journey from Gallipoli and the reception staff were so informative and helpful. The room is clean, comfortable and feels authentic. The breakfast was delicious and provided plenty of options. The roof top terrace provides a great view of the city and river and the perfect place to rest... More

I'm not a fan of leaving average reviews but amiral palace really is just that "average" We booked as a mystery hotel via hotwire declared as four star in sultanahmet. Taxi driver from Ataturk airport couldnt find it even afer telephoning but we got there in the end. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded and were shown... More

This was our second stay at the Amira. Location is excellent to Istanbul's star attractions. The hotel itself could be improved, especially the beds. But what made me re-book and give Amira a "A" is for their staff and service. They are expert at helping guests arrange everything for a rewarding visit to this wonderful city. Highly recommend the Amira.

Stayed there in September for 4 nights, as part of a group tour of Turkey. Hotel was ok, but not great. Room was in need of a big refreshment - stains on ceiling and in bathroom. Reasonably comfortable, good location. Restaurant was so-so; food was ok but bland (dinner). Staff was ok.

This is a lovely little hotel located in a very convenient area of Istanbul. We easily walked to all attractions. The hotel has an extremely friendly staff--everyone we interacted with was friendly and welcoming. Amenities which are free to all guests is a computer(there is only one but I was able to use it whenever I wanted to) and a... More
