Selected Hotel Amira based on Trip Advisor and other reports. Winner!
Location - 10 minutes form key tourist attractions such as Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Cisterns and the key tram system through Istanbul. Good selection of restaurants and cafes in the immediate area.
Hotel - the amalgamation of 2 buildings to create the hotel adds an interesting atmosphere to the hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Excellent bathroom. Suspect that we did not have an 'entry level' room, but it was great. Breakfast was a special treat with daily variations for interest. Roof top bar provided an interesting view over the water and some worthwhile food for an easy night in.
Staff - very helpful before arrival in recommending local tour operators. The briefing we received from AJ set us up for our entire time in Istanbul.
A great choice which we would recommend to all.More
