Amira is a great hotel. The location is central yet you can get a peaceful night's sleep. The rooms are great with an interesting design. We had the junior suite and the extra space was welcome. The balcony was a nice touch.
Breakfast was the best we'd had in a while. It wasn't that the selection was huge, but that everything was fresh and delicious. The afternoon tea was basic with rich turkish tea, and turkish bagel-like pastry sandwiches (had the name memorized but can't remember it now). I really wish they offered 24 hour room service (even snacks or cold dishes) as had a hectic time trying to find something to eat late at night. This is very minor though.
The team was great, very helpful and friendly. They drew us several maps and recommended restaurants that we could try. We left Istanbul for a few days and arranged to leave our bags with them on our last day so we could get a chance to explore as our flight was late at night. They greeted us on our return like old friends.
I would really like to go back !
