as seasoned world travelers, we highly recommend this fabulous gem of a hotel right in the middle of the old city of instanbul. the staff are absolutely AMAZING, helpful, kind (i could go on and on!!!) ; and the manager, arthur, should be knighted! (seriously.) they could not have done another thing to make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable, from arranging private tours, mapping out our 'just the two of us' walks around the romantic (and very close to our hotel!) old city sites, to making reservations at unique and delish(!) little restaurants. we would have liked to stay there forever! (but had to move on to a hotel in izmir, which they recommended, helped us with contacts there, etc. the gift that just kept giving!!!) the breakfast buffet is terrific. the staff even brought our breakfast stuff up to the roof-top terrace where we watched the morning unfold over the marmara sea...beautiful. everything we asked them to do, they said "yes, absolutely, we can do that." and they did, to our absolute delight.

Room Tip: we had balcony rooms which faced the street and had a view of the hagia sophia lit at night which we...

This is by far one of the best hotels we've every stayed in - from location and service to rooms and food, I don't think it can compare.

We arrived in the evening and were offered drinks over an introduction talk about Istanbul telling us what we can do and where to eat. We were upgraded to family deluxe room which was huge and very modestly decorated. The staff were fantastic and had a little chocolate fondue waiting for us, organised restaurant and hamman bookings and went out their way to make sure we had a great time.

The location was perfect...within easy walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, a street full of restaurants and a shopping area. There was even a rooftop patio where we could just sit, relax and take in the view away from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul. We had breakfast and afternoon tea at the hotel which was tasty and full of local delicacies. I would highly recommend staying at Hotel Amira and would stay here again when visiting the city.

Well done Trip Advisor. We chose via you and weren't let down. Great location for the old city. Best part though was the wonderful introduction to the city and the hotel on the roof top cosy area upon arrival. Well done Amira as that's the best welcome we have ever had and you ensured our next 48 hours were well planned and easy. Great hotel to stay in, lovely rooms, breakfast very nice and wonderful staff. Highly recommended if you are after a no fuss but welcome stay in Istanbul.

We stayed here because of all the excellent reviews on trip advisor. We were not let down at all, this place is brilliant. Location is excellent for all the tourist attractions, rooms are very clean and comfortable and we had a room with a balcony which was very nice. The breakfast is one of the best I have ever seen with an enormous selection of lovely things. The rooftop is a beautiful place to have a drink, especially in the evening.
Apart from that though the service at this hotel is absolutely brilliant, you will not find it any better than this anywhere.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies are very nice.

We stayed at the Hotel Amira recently for four nights, and we were more than pleased by our choice. Our room was spacious and immaculate. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and responsive. We loved the location which was within easy walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The roof deck is a peaceful oasis in bustling Istanbul: a perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and contemplate the beautiful Sea of Marmara.

We recommend Hotel Amira without hesitation and would choose it again if we have the chance to return to Istanbul.

The service at this hotel was like nothing we have ever experienced anywhere in the world. From the moment we arrived and Tina took us to the roof to decompress and orient us to the city to AJ's emergency phone calls for us...this hotel was exceptional. Exceptional service and a beautiful rooftop patio and a clean room and a great breakfast daily all combined to make our stay outstanding. Thank you.

We booked this hotel based on the reviews on trip advisor, and were not disappointed in any way. As all the previous reviews say, good location, great breakfast, fantastic views, yummy high tea, and Turkish delight to pick on all day in the breakfast room. The staff are amazing, friendly and cant do enough. Thank you for a fantastic stay
