A family hotel. Waking distance to the Sultan Ahmet mosque and the neighbouring musems. The grand Bazaar and the tramp line are also near. My 4 night stay in room 206 will be always memorable, a feeling of sleeping in a boat with an upper deck. My children enjoyed their stay at this hotel. The breakfast is also good.

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Amber for two nights prior to a cruise. I was going to say that the hotel is situated in a busy area but with 123 million inhabitants I don't think Istanbul actually has a such a thing as a quiet area. The regular calls to prayer add to the noise levels.... More

She gave us the suet 105. The breakfast was good but... More

The Amber is in a Turkish neighbourhood not far from many of the city's sights and very close to the Kumkapi dining area. The staff were very helpful and our deskman even took us to a sports bar to watch the football match when we had difficulty obtaining tickets (long story, but government policy makes it hard to get tickets...

My friend and I stayed here for four nights. While it is very clean and pretty close to the main sights, we believe it could be better for the money. The surrounding area is very noisy (not the hotel's fault). We were told we got a quiet room but it didnt make much difference. The breakfast was adequate but the... More
