Outstanding

Posted 01-Mar-2015
This is my first ever review of any hotel, but I had to on this occasion. Simply outstanding in every feature, I must pay particular credit to Emre (the Betiskas supporter and I hope i have spelt his name right) but all of the staff are a credit to this wonderful hotel. I met the owner briefly - and I can see why he has got such a magnificent hotel and outstanding staff. If I could give grade this more than 5 stars I would without any hesitation.

SERVITI E RIVERITI...COSA CHIEDERE DI PIU'?

Posted 01-Mar-2015
Pros: tea break dalle 16 alle 18
Location: posizione eccellente, nel miglior quartiere della città
esperienza magnifica in questa struttura dove si è coccolati dal primo all'ultimo momento. lo staff fa di tutto per esserti utile e grazie alle poche camere si ha sempre l'impressione di essere messi al centro dell'attenzione, a volte la gentilezza del personale è quasi imbarazzante!

Perfect location, unbelievable awesome staff

Posted 22-Feb-2015
This was one of the best hotel stays I've had for a vacation. The staff was super friendly and over the top helpful. The hotel itself was extremely well maintained and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast offering was so much more than what you get at hotels in the US -- very fresh products and a great variety. Tea time in the evenings was a great way to relax after a day out and about.

BEST HOTEL EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD !!

Posted 19-Feb-2015
Pros: Everything, the building the decore, the rooms, the mini-bar, the staff, the friendliness the knowledge and help with touristic attractions, location.
Cons: water pressure in the morning, water sometimes cuts off from bathroom faucet
Location: walking distance to all the historical site seeing in the old city, the blue mosque, the Hagia Sofia, the cisterns, the grand bazaar, Ottoman's palace
I came to Istanbul after 2 nights of no sleep, I had planned to check into the Hotel (I arrived around 7 AM) and sleep until noon then go explore the city, the minute I stepped into hotel Amira I was rejuvenated, did not sleep and the staff were very friendly, i checked in early and they recommended where to go and planned my entire stay in Istanbul with time-table etc. The hotel is very artistic and in great condition, breakfast Buffet is great, afternoon tea & dessert. Rooms very clean and elegant, bath-tub Jacuzzi, very centrally located in the old historical city.

Best Customer Service, Excellent location

Posted 18-Feb-2015
Pros: The staff at the hotel were exceptional. 7* for customer service, very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were very tastefully decorated
Cons: Small amount of damp in the corner ceiling of the room. Breakfast variety could be improved.
Location: Excellent location, in the heart of Sultan Ahmet and very close to the Sultan Ahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque) and surrounding restaurants.
I've been fortunate enough to travel around a few places around the world and can say that the friendliness of the staff is unmatched. They seemed like genuinely nice people that want to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Also they had a passion for Istanbul that was contagious which compliments a city like Istanbul very well with its' rich history. The rooms were very tastefully decorated with the right amount of tradition and modern. Bathrooms were also very nice. There was one issue and one room for improvement. There was a small amount of damp on the ceiling of one of the rooms we stayed in. Also the breakfast was good but nothing fantastic. Having said that the tea time was excellent with good choice of quality cakes, baklava, turkish delight, biscuits and turkish tea/coffee. Overall, the stay at Amira hotel is one that me and my wife enjoyed very much and would definitely want to come back and stay again.

Great staff, service, food, location, experience

Posted 10-Feb-2015
Pros: Staff, service, Emre and the man the manager who looks like Robert Downy Jr., painted ceilings and room decor, ambiance, breakfast, tea, location.
Cons: Pillows and sheets.
Location: Great location in the old city
Got good reviews on Trip Advisor so I signed up. Exceptional, good-looking and friendly staff and amazing service. Delicious breakfast spread and classy tea time. Lots of help making travel arrangements and mapping out sights, restauraunts and a good Istanbul experience. Farih at front desk even helped me find an English speaking Church and printed out a gluten intolerant notice in Turkish to alert restaurants of my dietary restraints. In my original room you could hear the toilet flush and water running pretty loudly from upstairs. I told the front desk just FYI, not complaining. They upgraded me to a much better room the next night and comped me a night for not being able to move me earlier. All bend over backwards to help as if it is their pleasure. Good location, nice shopping street behind the Blue Mosque. This hotel earns their high ratings.

Toller Urlaub und dies dank einem tollen Hotel!

Posted 03-Feb-2015
Dieses Hotel kann man nur weiterempfehlen und das sagen wir unabhängig von Hotelstandards, Sauberkeit und Frühstücksbüffet, welches ohne wenn und aber einem modernen, zeitgemässen und europäischen Ideal entspricht. Was dieses Hotel so weiterempfehlenswert macht ist das Personal. Es arbeitet mit viel Leidenschaft und Aufmerksamkeit. Wir abreiten beide in der Hotellerie und waren von so einem Service total überrascht. Von der Rezeption über Bellboy bis hin zum Frühstücksmitarbeiter waren alle bedacht einem das Gefühl von Willkommenheit zu geben. Vielleicht ist es normal das einer Frühstücksmitarbeiter mit einem sympathischen Lächeln das Geschirr abräumt und keines Gespräches überdrüssig ist oder das die Rezeptionsmitarbeiter sich mehr als eine halbe Stunde täglich mit einem beschäftigen - wir kennen so was nicht! Ich der heutigen Zeit geht es nur noch um Hektik und Geschäfte. Wenn sie also ein Hotel suchen, dass diese Hektik ausgrenzt und ihnen einen ruhigen und individuellen Aufenthalt in Istanbul anbieten möchte - dann sind sie hier richtig. Übrigens, dass ist eine Werbung für das Hotel, da wir begeistert sind.

Fab hotel in the old city

Posted 02-Feb-2015
Booked through Expedia , with transport arranged from the airport. Met by the rep for the taxi company and taken direct to the hotel without any hassle or worry. Greeted at the hotel and given 5 Star Customer service through out our stay. Before I could ask any questions , we were firstly told our room had been up graded to a suite. Then what time breakfast was and we would be given a map in the morning with the best places to visit. The room was superb, very clean, well furnished , great bathroom and a balcony terrace with views of the City and the Bhosphorus. After a good nights sleep, a decent selection in the buffet breakfast of hot and cold food. Then the staff at reception advised us where to go (historical sites, shops and good restaurants). We were only there for 3 nights but managed to cover the main spots in the Old City. The hotel was superb and the staff were first class which really help made our stay . The hotel arranged a taxi to take us to the hotel (50 lira). I would definitely recommend this hotel and when we go back to Istanbul, we will be staying here again.
