Booked on the back of reviews and it was excellent.
Only small but centrally located, comfortable rooms and helpful staff.
Lovely relaxing roof terrace for a late night cocktail.
Would definitely use again and recommend to others who are visiting the sights of Istanbul.

Very nice and cozy Hotel. Rooms had been very spacious and clean. Breakfast was a delight. But most of all, the Stuff had been very attentive and friendly. It was a great experience that I recommand to everybody staying at Sulthanahmed.

Room Tip: Rooms on the floor below the lobby, are situated below street level so that the windows are on pave...

Upgraded to a huge, clean, nicely appointed room with spacious, modern bathroom- we could not have been more content for the two days we stayed before our cruise. Personal attention by the most accommodating staff: Sim welcomed us with a glass of wine and a thorough "orientation" to the hotel and the city; Emre can not do enough for you - forget something? no problem- he will have it or find it for you; an attentive doorman who helps you no matter how many times you come and go. A wonderful small hotel- no big, noisy lobby, a great location, and an excellent breakfast and afternoon tea

One of the nicest places I have ever stayed! The staff were amazing and helpful, you could ask anything and they were more than happy to help. The buffet breakfast and afternoon tea were incredible! Everything about this hotel is absolutely outstanding! Worth every dollar spent!

I recently stayed two nights at the Hotel Amira Istanbul and found it to be simply wonderful .The building is excellent with large well-appointed rooms, an outstanding breakfast and afternoon tea room, and a beautiful roof top terrace with its amazing views and top-notch bar service .The front desk staff that I met could not have been more friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough for me . On arrival from Rome at Midnight AJ insisted on organising a beautiful and very much appreciated old fashioned lemonade to take to my room .The two young men who were doormen/porters were also very friendly and efficient with quick smiles, kind and welcoming natures. The location of the hotel is excellent and in a great location in Sultanahmet only a 10 minute walk up to the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. There is also a taxi rank right outside .
Without hesitation I strongly recommend the Hotel Amira to any traveller looking for a wonderful place to stay in Istanbul.

The staff cannot do enough for you. On arrival escorted to the lovely dining area given Turkish delight and Turkish tea. Emir was fabulous producing a local map of where to go and what to do. Location is fantastic with an easy walk to restaurants the blue mosque and Hagia Sofyia. Loved the area and the roof top terrace for a few drinks with a view of the Bosphorus after a hot summers day touring. The Aresta Bazaar was lovely uncrowded and offered all the Turkish towels and pashminas that I needed to purchase. The Grand and Spice bazaars are a must see, however, they are both incredibly crowded, do your shopping at the Aresta or the shops surrounding these large bazarrs. Loved Istanbul and will definitely go back to Hotel Amira. I do think the spa tub facility area should be free and not be charged 25€ per hour. In the heat of summer it would be nice to dive into a pool. If you wish for a pool then select another hotel. The breakfast was terrific. The room 301 was small but comfortable as I was travelling alone on my way to meet friends in Europe. Had issues with the bathroom door and shower door colliding when you tied to get in. Ask for another room, room 301 is for singles only.

We (from Singapore and Hong Kong) stayed with Hotel Amira for all three nights in Istanbul and could not have asked for a better experience.

LOCATION - the hotel is situated in central Sultanahmet and is a short walking distance to most of the famous sites as listed out in earlier reviews. The hotel staff gave a comprehensive introduction to the city which was helpful in planning day-to-day activities.

ACCOMMODATION - the interior design is not extravagant but pleasant enough. Our room is a twin for two persons; it is not large but comfortable enough. One comment would be the air-conditioner broke-down on our second night here (which was unfortunately given it is now summer); we were upset but surprised at how well it was handled: a fan was provided immediately upon request, and the management waived a night's cost without us asking.

Everyone from the reception to the bar and the cleaning ladies were smiley and happy to assist at all times. Many thanks to AJ, Farti, Sim and Agur (hopefully these have been spelt correctly) for a lovely time in Istanbul indeed!
