“Great stay at amber hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

Good hotel, friendly and helpfull staf. Located very convenient near blue mosque and aya sofia. Hotel is easily accesible by metro. The rooftop has a stuning view, which you can enjoy when having breakfast. Special thanks to Neda who helped us out and was very friendly!
We would definitely recommend the place to anyone else!

Very friendly people. Rooms are not big but they are very clean.
In walking distance to the tram to all touristic places..
Breakfast on the rooftop is very nice.
For eating, the area around the corner looks nice but watch the bill.

Room Tip: We had a room at the streetside was not noisy at all.

Good Hotel ideally situated for the main sights, the tram and fantastic fish restaurants. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially the reception staff and a young lady called Neda. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. the breakfast room was a roof top room and terrace with extensive views.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel and very quiet, a haven from the hustle and bustle of non stop...

It's a very nice hotel. The rooms are clean, breakfast is excellent. All the main tourist attractions are whitin walking distance. Behind the hotel are many good fish restaurants.
The staff is very friendly especially Neda. She was always very helpful and kind.
We felt always very welcome and comfortable.

I stayed for 5 days. I found the hotel to be quant and the location to be ideal in that it was near the seafood resturants and within 10-15min walking distance to all of the major sites and attractions...it is a 10min walk up the hill to the Metro and the Grand Bazzar...the European style breakfast on the roof terrace was very good and had a lot of choices...Cemal Yilmaz, the Chef, was always concerned in the quality of the food and its presentation...the atmosphere was nice, as there is a view of Marmara Sea, was made special because the hotel offered a customer relations person named Neda...she was very helpful with showing me what sites to see and how to get to them...the rooms are modern and small but spacious in some ways ...they offer 32" LCD TV...the big plus is CNN and BBC are in english and the big minus is that only news was in english...english movie channels are needed for westerners in the evening before sleep...one can only listen to the news just so long...Nesim Ates was especially helpful...the entrie staff is warm and friendly and felt at home with them...I had heat problems in the room on arrival but Nesim had repaired the next day...the WiFi in the rooms is slow and the Skyping was not possible...

Room Tip: The rooms on the backside of third floor have views of the Marmara Sea and are quieter than the room...

Neda at the breakfast gave me and my family extra personal service and a very warm welcome every morning. The location, the view from the rooftop, the rooms, the nearby restaurant street with fish dishes and the very close distance to beautiful important sightseeing opportunities are all just a few things why this is a perfect place to stay at for a weekend in Istanbul.
