Rather small rooms, but kind of cozy. Very beautiful hotel, and we liked spending time at the terrace. The internet was quite slow, but most probably, that is a problem for most of Istanbul. We really enjoyed the staying at the Amber hotel, and I think it's mostly because of Neda and of course the rest of the staff. So...

Good location, not far from Grand bazaar apprx 15mins walk & behind hotel you will find some nice restaurants that obviously is a place for tour group dinner stop. Apart from this, nothing about this hotel impress us or anywhere near a 4* but 3* hotel hotel, mainly due to the room size/lobby/comfort/general amenity/bathroom size – only shower no bath...

I was very impressed by the Best Western Amber Hotel. We stopped here on the final leg of our month long Turkey honeymoon. The hotel was clean, well presented and had a nice energy to it. From the moment we entered the hotel we were pleasantly greeted by the male and female front desk personnel. This was the first time...

This hotel is in an old-fashioned but well-maintained building about 15-20 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and 5-10 minutes up a hill from a tram stop and the Grand Bazaar. The rooms were small but beautifully clean. The staff were friendly and keen to help. Our 3rd floor room at the back was quiet and cool. It is near...

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.
