Walking distance to everywhere,don't miss the fish market behind the building. Great rooftop and sea view restaurant offering well-prepared breakfast. Every details may surprise you in tiny corner. What's more,the staff here was so helpful,especially the reception and Neda who is GR manager.I leaved my watch under the bed and they helped it back. Just don't miss this hotel.

Perfect location - the best fish restaurants 50 meters away. Close to sultanahmet and the bazaar-area. A genuine part of Istanbul. The view of the matrmara-lake from the diningroom is fantastic. Go there!

Our stay at the BW Amber was made special by the excellent caring service of the staff, particularly the chef, reception and Neda. The hotel is located in a bustling area with lots of shops and restaurants but the room was quiet when the windows were closed.

Probably the worst hotel we have stayed in. Reception staff were lazy and one spent more time playing games on Facebook rather than dealing with our requests. Wifi was poor, probably because reception staff were sucking up juice from playing games on Facebook! Had to leave early (before breakfast) on last day of our stay therefore tried to arrange a...

BW Amber Hotel is an excellent hotel in Kumkapi for the Tourist traveller. Location is good and the Grand Bazaar and other sites are Close. If you like good fish meals there are several restaurants around the corner even if they are quite touristic.

A friendly small hotel in the older parts of Istanbul. !5 minutes walk to e.g. the Blue Mosque. Lively street, but not disturbing at night. Close to the fishing harbour with several good restaurants. Friendly staff and very nice room facing the busy street. good beds.

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...
