        • Family with children

          We loved our stay at the hotel amira. from the minute we arrived we were welcomed by friendly staff who were always happy to help with directions, information etc. We were staying with our 6month old son and there was a lovely travel cot made up in our room for our arrival, the staff were fantastic with him and always helped with the buggy. the room facilities were excellent. we would definately go back and have already recommended the hotel to our friends.

        • Older travelers

          We loved the little extras provided such as complimentary afternoon tea - a delight after hours walking around the city. Also, a magnificent sitting area on the roof top, very courteous and helpful staff with a great knowledge of sights to see, methods of travel and places to eat, free use of the internet and staff obliged by printing out boarding passes for us, in fact everything was really great.

        • Older travelers

          Helpful, friendly staff. Clean comfortable rooms. Excellent shower. Excellent breakfast choice. Perfect location for the Old City area.

          Towel warmer/radiator did not operate. Room facing the road was slightly noisy but not intrusive. Meeting room/lounge was an afterthought and is not at the same standard as the rest of the hotel.

          The staff was wonderful! They contacted us prior to our arrival and offered to arrange transport to the hotel. That was so nice as I had not been to Istanbul before and we were scheduled to arrive at 6:30am. They also suggested great restaurants and gave me tips on handling taxis, etc.

          Our room was warm. We turned the room temp down which helped. We also opened the windows but since we were on the ground floor all the smoke from those passing by drifted into our room.

          The hotel was very well located and the room had a view of the Bosphorus from the balcony. The staff were very friendly. The deluxe room and bathroom were spacious and very well finished/designed. Breakfast buffet was also superb.

          Excellent and attentive staff. Very helpful.

          The additional charge to use the spa, this should be complementary to hotel guests.

          Great 'boutique' hotel, centrally located (5 minute walk from Blue Mosgue) with a sea view from the roof terrace. Excellent staff, couldn't do enough for you. Had an initial welcome on the roof terrace where we were shown all points of interest and best places to visit during our 3 days. Would definitely return if we visit Istanbul again, highly recommended.

        • Older travelers

          Great friendliness and helpfulness of the whole staff. Wonderful roof terrace. Delicious complimentary five o'clock tea.

          Room not quite spotless and poor lighting.

        • Group of friends

          Hotel Amira had been recommended to us by a friend who had visited previously. The location of the hotel was perfect for what we wanted to do and see in Istanbul. We had a very bad experience at the airport and it took us over two hours to get through passport control so to have had our transfer to the hotel previously arranged was a bonus. The staff at the hotel were excellent and we appreciated the time and effort they took to inform us of the location and sites to visit. We also liked the afternoon teas!

          Bed too hard!

          It is very central to all the big attractions, the staff were very friendly and helpful.

          It was a bit noisy, with it being very near a main road.
