"The gem of Sultanahmet!"
Our stay at Hotel Amira made our vacation to Istanbul incredibly special and memorable. First and foremost, every single person on the entire staff went above and beyond to help us feel welcome and assist us with our day-to-day needs, including information on and directions to local sights and transportation in and out of the city. They also provided us with helpful tips on how to avoid tourist traps and local taxi drivers who prey on tourists. Moreover, the hotel itself is beautiful. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet, despite being on a busy street corner. The hotel rooftop is incredibly serene, provides a beautiful backdrop for pictures, and is luxuriously decorated. I regret not spending more time there. Finally, I will note that Hotel Amira provides a daily spread of breakfast that is quite large and varied. The breakfast included fresh bread, fruits, vegetables, nuts, jams, cereal and more. Gluten-free bread was available as well and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the staff clearly understands how to prevent cross-contamination, evidencing how seriously they take food allergies. Being gluten-free myself, I typically go hungry at hotel breakfast buffets, but this was certainly not the case at Hotel Amira! I also took advantage of the daily tea time provided every afternoon, where complimentary snacks, tea, coffee and lemonade are provided. All in all, had a fabulous experience here and would recommend Hotel Amira in a heartbeat.
