Having been told about this hotel I did some research and so glad we opted to book this lovely small hotel in Istanbul. Although the hill is a bit offputting to get to the Grand Bazaar there are alternative options which make it a bit easier to get directly to the Blue Mosque and Hippodrome. However if you attempt the... More

Best Western Amber Hotel is within walking distance of several major attractions of Istanbul; Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque and St Sofia Church. In the old quarter of Istanbul the hotel has no parking facilities and parking on the street is fiercely contested. Our room was clean and comfortable but I had to ask for tea and coffee making facilities and... More

This hotel has a great location. Easy to go to major attractions. 20 minutes walk to the mosques. The view of the terrace is wonderful. The breakfast is also good, with many typical dishes. The rooms are big enough.

We stayed 5 nights in this hotel in August 2014 and really liked it. The hotel was small and very friendly with an excellent location. It was cozy and very welcoming. The staff were very helpful in particular Yacob the night receptionist. The staff were respectful and didn't make you feel that you had to tip for every tiny bit... More

I stayed on night at Amber Hotel en route to the airport. The hotel is centrally located with walking distance to the sights and with the very pleasant restaurant area Kumkapi around the corner. Reception staff was very friendly and helpful and got me accomodated quickly. The room was rather spacious albeit with a small bathroom. Bed was OK. The... More

Few nights in that city and i can say that people at the hotel are a good representation of the city citizens: polite, friendly, respectful and helpful. The hotel is close enough to the touristic center without being right in. So you can experience a bit a real live of Istambul by mingling with street vendors and cafe who served... More

Wonderful staying at the Best Western Amber Hotel. Picturesque location in the middle of the historical centre of Istambul. Super clean and tidy rooms in spite of their size (a bit small our triple one). Excellent breakfast and dinner served at the roof terrace. By the way, pretty views over the Marmara I felt really moved by all the staff... More
