Very good small hotel in the old part of Istanbul

Posted Jul 26, 2017
Just few minutes walk away from Sultan Ahmed Mosque! 20 mins by taxi from the airport(max 65TL, take regular taxi in the airport outside arrivals, there is supervisor, who checks that taxi driver didnt offer too much, which some actually try to do, don't take anything inside the airport building, they give you overpriced offers) The hotel was perfect for us, location, food, and what's the most surprising , the silence, keep in mind you are surrounded by mosques! Wonderful view from the roof terrace, unfortunately we didn't have chance to get any drinks there, probably they are offered within limited times. We got a lot of trav.info in the reception, including timetables for the state ferry, you can also buy a state transport card in the hotel and later fill it with more money on the tram station.(10TL card, including 4 TL as the start) its very easy to go to the beach by ferry, its just a bit too long 1h15m one way to the island , we were recommended(but cheap, abour 5 TL one way) The hotel has elevator, it was very useful for us( luggage and stroller) My toddler daughter got a crib, even though I didn't ask for it. Breakfast was good, sweet and savoury. The barmen is always ready to prepare nice capuccino or a cup of turkish coffee. Thanks for all, I would definitely come back to your hotel.

Overrated and very basic

Posted Jul 22, 2017
Pros: The staff
Cons: Soundproofing
Location: Good location for main sites in old city.
I cannot understand the glowing reviews for this hotel. Yes the staff are nice and helpful and it is clean, but the rooms are very dated and the bathroom is tiny. The main reason I have marked it down is the noise, both from outside and the walls are paper thin and you can hear every noise from adjoining rooms and above. I was booked for 4 nights but left after 1 sleepless night.

Great views of the sea and friendly staff

We had a great experience at Hotel Amira. The staff were really friendly and helpful - each of them gave us different tips of where to go and what to see. We got a room upgrade too which was a pleasant surprise! The location of the Hotel is perfect for main attractions in the Old City - it's literally a 5 min walk to the Blue Mosque. The roof terrace is a great spot to watch the sun set!
