We stayed at the Amira in June, 2021 for four nights. We’ve stayed there several times before. The location just down the hill from the Arasta Bazaar, the Hippodrome and the Blue Mosque is excellent; a ten minute walk, and a fifteen minute walk from the Sultanahmet tram stop. The rooms are nice, clean, quiet and reasonably priced. The included Turkish breakfast buffet is just as you would expect. Quite adequate. But the big plus is the staff. They are friendly, helpful and efficient. Sam, at the front desk reception is their super star. When my wife somehow lost the rubber tip to her cane, Sam located a medical supply mall miles away, called them to be sure they had the product I was looking for and insured that I would be taken care of when I got there (there was no English spoken there), put me into a taxi and gave the driver specific instructions about where I needed to go, and even gave me his personal Istanbul Card transit pass so I could take the tram back without a hassle. His restaurant recommendations were flawless. He called Fine Dining Istanbul to be sure they were open (many were not because of Covid) and had them send a car and driver to pick us up and bring us back, and it was complimentary. On another occasion he chastised a taxi driver who tried to over charge us. And he booked private transportation to the airport at a price that was lower than the price quoted on the internet. So to the owners and managers of the Amira I hope you are reading this and are rewarding Sam appropriately. He is a gem. Yes, we recommend the Amira without hesitation and will stay there again in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel, great location, nice view from the roof top restaurant and great staff. The hotel staff was very friendly! Aziz was always attentive when were having breakfast, Bahtiyar was helping us with getting a taxi and our luggage, Volcan at the reception was very helpful with getting necessary information about the attractions.
