I can't remember the last time I visited a hotel and was pleased with EVERYTHING. Other hotels should take cues from Hotel Amira because this is how a hotel should be run.
Firstly, I arrived at the hotel at 10:30 AM - early for a check in - and the staff let me check in shortly after having breakfast. The complementary breakfast is very good and plentiful and served in a lovely room with free wi-fi. They also have a complementary "tea time" from 4-6 which serves an array of teas and snacks.
The room itself was tastefully decorated, immaculate and spacious. I even had a balcony with a gorgeous view of the Bosphorus. The decor was Eastern meets pre-war decadence. I really liked it and felt at home. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi tub/shower.
I usually avoid Sultanahmet when I visit Istanbul, but since I only stayed one night, I thought it would be best to stay near the sites. It's definitely a touristy neighborhood but very quiet and convenient. It's just a short 10 minute walk to Hagia Sophia and 15 minutes to the Grand Bazaar.
Most of all, I was impressed with how super friendly and hospitable the entire hotel staff was. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and will recommend it to all of my friends.
