good place for a city trip to Istanbul, although it was not easy for us to find it. But service, room and breakfast was good. Great Bazar was on walking distance, also tramstop. Breakfast room was on top floor, good buffet, view on Bosporus was great.

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.
