Amira Hotel is one of the best in the area. Within walking distance from the tram tat takes you to Taksim via the Furnicular. But if you going out every night, you might as well stay in Taksim, and visit the old city once or twice. Service was good - breakfast very good. Rooms were neat but a bit ornate and dark. What was frustrating was there was no wireless reception in the room, only in common area, whch is not what they advertise. The rooftop are is great for relaxing in the evenings with a view over gthe bosphorous and the minarets of the blue mosque. A nice hotel, but I will stay in Taksim next time I am in Istanbul.
The manager did give a good description of the hotel and services available and recommended things to do. There are a few average looking eating places around the area and there is a convenience store which opens late right opposite.
carry a map of the hotel with you because taxi drivers dont know the name or address.The hotel supplies a wallet size map
