We stayed at the Amira in April with our teenage kids. It certainly deserves its good reputation on trip advisor. The staff couldn't be more helpful and kind. They treat you like a member of the family. Every piece of information given to us was beneficial. You did not feel at any point in time that they were trying to advertise a restaurant or venue. Breakfast was plentiful. Location was amazing. Loved walking to the Arasta Bazaar and from there to all the local attractions such as the Aghia Sophia. Easy cab ride into Taksim although be careful with the taxi drivers, who will try to rip you off.
The only reason we did not rate it excellent is because it is more of a 4-star deluxe rather than a 5-star, purely on experience with 5-star hotels.
