“Fantastic Boutique Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We absolutely loved this hotel! From start to finish, everything was just perfect. Upon arrival, we were given a welcome drink and very nice orientation of the area. This made us feel right at home and ready to explore. Our room was lovely, spacious and well-appointed. The breakfast was delicious and varied, with plenty of fruits, yogurt, breads and hot items. The location of the hotel is perfect - very close to all that you will want to see! They also have a very nice "spa" room available to book, with a hot tub and sauna and they can arrange a massage therapist as well. This makes for a very relaxed way to spend an afternoon or evening. Stop looking and book a room. You will not regret it!

Room Tip: The upper floor rooms have a lovely view.

Excellent location within ease in the sultanhmet area..though better to cab down from airport. Staff were excellent which allowed us to check in early with an upgrade on the first night.

Highlight were the rooms which had beautiful lighting and well stocked bathroom amenities. Beds were so comfortable, rooms were spacious and even though we were on the first floor on the next night, it was largely quiet. Thumbs up for the breakfast too, good selection of cold and limited but delicious warm offerings. Would not hesitate to come back to this hotel at all!

Great location (near the Blue Mosque in Sultanahmet), very helpful staff, good price, excellent breakfast and beautiful room. Far better than the usual chain hotels we normally use in big cities.
Only minor drawback is that there is no restaurant but there are many good places within a five minute walk.

We stayed ?n th?s hotel for 5 n?ghts ?nbetween two tours. Everything was within reach, plenty excellent places to eat in, so it was an excellent position.
The hotel itself is a clever and 'cute' design.
The service is excellent. Arthur is a very nice and accomodating host.
The rooms are immaculate and refreshed daily. I am happy to mention two names: Dilek and Emrye - thank you very much for your service.
The only remark to help people make the right choice (because from our point of view this was not a problem), is that at night it may be a bit noizy, cars passing by, ambulant salespersons advertising their merchandise... I see this as part of fun and experiencing the local culture.
To all the staf at the hotel - Te?ekür eder?m.

We are new to writing reviews on trip advisor but felt compelled to finally contribute and recognise the hotels we feel have offered a fond and exceptional memory. The Amira has delivered on both these points. We stayed here at the end of March and originally booked for two nights. Firstly we were greeted by Arturo (Arthur) who was incredibly welcoming and naturally helpful making many recommendations based on it being our first time in Istanbul. During our stay we were looked after incredibly well by ALL the staff. A room upgrade in a spacious and beautiful setting, followed by highlights such as the breakfast, stunning roof terrace and 5 star service plus complimentary afternoon tea. We were so happy there we extended our stay for two more nights, completely blowing our budget but it was worth every penny. Highly recommended. Amy & Ashley

The Amira hotel was ideally situated to enjoy the historic district as it is just a 5 minute walk away through the "craftmarket mall" to the Blue Mosque area. It is also just a 3 minute walk from the Boardwalk and Parks along the waterfront which proved to be a delightful change from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area. The Amira Staff are more than friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast offers a variety of breads, cereals, fruits ( both fresh and dried), yoghurt as well as eggs. The afternoon tea provided us with some quick "pick-me-up" snacks ( mini sandwiches, nibbles and sweets) which we really appreciated after a long day of site seeing. We took our treats to our own balcony but we also spent a lot of time enjoying the view from the relaxing rooftop terrace. We enjoyed the sandwiches, Kababs and pida's offered as part of their adequate, though limited menu but you do have to be prepared to wait a bit as some food is not actually prepared in their kitchen but rather just up the street. The room was clean and spacious, bed comfortable, A/c and room quiet. My only concern actually was getting into the giant step up tub to use the shower especially because the sliding glass shower doors provide no real support and make it a little awkward as well. If you have any mobility issues, I doubt that you could use it. There is no pool but I believe there is a fitness room available.

Room Tip: We felt the upgrade to a Bosphorous view was worth it not only because of the view from our balcony...
