Superb Hotel close to The Blue mosque e.t.c.

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Basically everything.
Cons: There was a slight confusion over our final bill which was resolved very quickly. It may be an idea to bring in a system of signing for drinks e.t.c.
Location: The location is perfect for the Blue Mosque, Ayasofya,The topkapi palace and the Basilica cisterns and the Sultanahmet tram stop to get around town.
When we arrived at the Amira Istanbul Hotel we were met by Emre the manager and given a beer and a very concise guide to the hotel and the surrounding area. He gave us a few names of restaurants and the types of cuisine available and overall I would say that we were made to feel very much at home.

Fantastic Rooms, Service & Location

Posted Jul 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
Instantly loved this hotel. The concierge was lovely and took a few minutes to serve me a glass of wine on the rooftop terrace while he explained things about the hotel and surrounding area, including sites to see, restaurant recommendations and tour offers. The room was impeccable...well anointed and very comfortable bed. The AC didn't quite kick the way I like (I'm from Texas), but a quick call to the front desk had it working within minutes. The rooftop terrace is fantastic and the concierge rummaged up a glass of wine for me when I returned very late one night and wanted a drink with a view. As well, they delivered breakfast to my room at 4:30am on the morning I had to depart at the crack of dawn. Overall, exceptional service, walking distance to everything in the old town and lovely rooms. This hotel is an excellent value and I would recommend it without hesitation.

The right price in the right location

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: The staff were friendly and helpful. We loved the rooftop welcome to the city and hotel. Very quiet rooms on a potentially noisy street.
Location: Depending on the weather and your interest in walking, many important sites are within a short walk -- the Blue Mosque, Suleymayah and Hippodrome
We were searching for a hotel in Istanbul for 3 days of sightseeing. The Hotel Amira was clean and perfectly well situated near the Blue Mosque. Many good restaurants are nearby but the hotel roof also has a very good restaurant served by the most friendly hotel staff. Breakfast and tea with lots of sweets and snacks are included in the very reasonable price. You can't go wrong.

Absolutely Fantastic

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: Excellent location. Shop at the Anasta Bazaar
What a gorgeous boutique hotel. From the welcoming drink and chat about Istanbul, to the beautiful hotel itself. The Amira and it's wonderful staff deliver far more than you could ever expect. Our room was spacious and lovely and the breakfast was superb. Then you have the welcoming roof-top lounge to relax, chat about the day and enjoy the sunset. Did I mention the location, fantastic. Skip the hassling salespeople of the Grand Bazaar and shop in the adjoining streets and the Anasta Bazaar just up the street. No-one bothers you, the quality is excellent and the prices were equally as good if not better than the Grand.

Great location, friendly and helpful staff

Posted Jul 9, 2014
We stayed only a few days here but we enjoyed the whole experience. AJ helped to plan our stay and even negotiated difficulties with our Turkish mobile carrier for us. A 5am departure also didn't phase them with breakfast delivered to our room. This was our 2nd visit to Istanbul and we will be staying at Hotel Amira when we visit again.
