This is a lovely little hotel which is centrally located. All major attractions are within walking distance. The hotel and rooms are very clean and staff are very friendly and helpful. The bathroom has everything you could need as a traveller from dental kits to shaving kit. The room however is very small so only book if you do not...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Classed as 4 star, this hotel was certainly not. The location was good and proximity to the famous Kumkapi fish restaurants was excellent. However, the restaurant service was poor - we wanted a meal in house on our first night having arrived in the evening and had difficulty in finding any staff in the restaurant. They were ill-prepared for evening...
