3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

the room amenities were a bit disappointing. I was expecting a kettle in the room as the pictures had this in it and most hotels do. Hotel was noisy and my room (108) was next to the lift and I could hear the "ping" throughout the night when it was called. Price was ok, location acceptable but could be better.

This is a hotel about 3/4 - 1 Km from Grand Bazaar or Blue Mosque. The Hotel reception and services are very good. We were provided good advise and guidance from Reception. The breakfast is OK, but lacks hot vegetarian dishes. The walk ways from the hotel are little tiring because of Cobblestone ways. We like the coziness and enjoyed... More

This hotel was very charming. We first stayed on a front room which was too noisy, and luckily Jakub the receptionist later on found us a quieter side room, and booked us some nice tours. The location was very central to most museums and interesting tourist attractions. One thing that we will remember from this hotel was the staff, especially... More

We just returned from a long weekend in Istanbul and really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Amber. The location is very good, and the hotel is charming. The rooms and bathrooms are decorated nicely and are very clean, but they are on the small side. The best part of the hotel was the staff; you won't find more... More

I realky liked the Best Western Amber. It's well located, five walking minutes away from the tram station. Also the service was great. The staff was always there for open questions and insider tip. One employee, Neda, a very nice young lady, helped us a lot, especially in giving tips for young people. Also there are nice restaurants just around... More

We have just returned from a week in Turkey celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The hotel was brilliantly located for the historic sights and the restaurants, including those by the fish market. The breakfast buffet was indeed "fit for a king - or a sultan!" and gave great views over the Sea of Mamara. Tea and coffee facilities are available... More
