When they ask if you would like to have tea upstairs when you are checking in, say YES! The view on the roof is just lovely. It is comfortable to relax, and take advantage of the free wifi. We walked to so many attractions. It seems to be close to everything and yet out of the way enough not to...

When you visit a hotel there are many factors that influence your stay at this venue but in my realisation of many years of travel whether 1 or 5 star all have some architectural charm However it is the staff and their friendliness that makes or break a hotel In the case of Amira the staff are incredible in their...

We stayed here one night waiting for our 5 day tour. The room the gave us was nothing short of amazing and the staff were really energetic and friendly. Knowing that we were leaving early for our tour, they were kind enough to make us a breakfast plate as the regular buffet would not be available. The hotel is in...

After several emails or online chat sessions with hotel staff, we felt comfortable that the hotel was interested in making sure guests had an enjoyable visit to the city and hotel. We were not disappointed. Room: very comfortable and...

I was pleasantly surprised by this boutique hotel in many ways. The room was spacious and nice, the hotel personnel were "over the top" with excellent service and friendliness. And, the hotel was within walking distance of all the main attractions that one goes to Istanbul to see. We were recommended to a great restaurant for dinner and they gave...

This is a really lovely hotel. It's well situated, 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque and 10 minutes from a tram stop. Our room was large and modern and was very clean.

My wife and another couple stayed at the hotel for three nights. The staff makes this place special with their service and attitude. The exemplary service began at check in when the manager invited us up to the roof terrace for an introduction to the the hotel and Istanbul (the strawberry drinks were an added touch).

Excellent hotel in a great location. Very clean and comfortable with large rooms and big bathrooms. It’s the small details that make this hotel stand out, from unique decoration, service, free water in the room, and a lovely terrace. The tram station is a 10 minute walk, along with the Blue Mosque and the Palace. The breakfast selection was very...

My wife and I chose Amira based on all the reviews. And the hotel lived up to our expectations. Located conveniently a short "downhill" walk from the Blue Mosque, it is close to a tram stop and several of Istanbul's top attractions. The room was "European" style, small but nice and with free wifi and breakfast buffet. There is an...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
