“Fantastic Stay!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This is a great little hotel close to many of the main attractions. Front desk was very helpful. They do take a bit of your time at check in for a little sales talk on the tours available, but really wasn't high pressure. We chose to decline and experience Istanbul on our own. We would encourage ones to avoid the tours and just enjoy Istanbul and see where the roads take you. As mentioned you do need earplugs as the prayer calls start early and are very loud. There were a few items broken in our room that should have a little attention. The rooftop morning breakfast is amazing. What was especially nice was visiting with Nada each morning. She is such a pleasant person and was very helpful. We looked forward to our morning chats and it was noteworthy how attentive she was to all the guests. If you choose this hotel you will not be disappointed.

I was sleeping in Best Western Amber Hotel in Istanbul one night. But it was a very comfortable night. Rooms in this hotel are well dressed, equipped with everything you need. There is a nice terrace on the roof, from where you can admire city view. Sometimes a sea gulf comes and sits next to you watching you with curiosity.
Decent breakfast sent timely and in a nice atmosphere.
Worth to consider as a base for city tour.
And the most shining point of the hotel is Neda - who makes you feel very comfortable and everyone can enjoy conversation with her.
Many thanks for a nice talk which made my stay even more pleasant.

We had one of our greatest experience in our last trip thank to all the friendly stuff especially Neda. She just took the holiday experience to a new level and actually increased our expectation. The highlight of her character is that she made us feel so much at home that sometimes we forgot that we are actually in hotel. It more seem like we stay over a family member place. We sure recommend your hotel to any of our friends who want to visit your city and we are looking forward to come back there sometimes soon. I'm planning to stablished my own business in an early future and I will be asking Neda to come work for me because of her outstanding customer service skills and her academic skill of customer relation.

I am staying here with my mum and dad at the moment and we're loving it. The rooms are beautiful, the location is excellent and staff are very good. I am sure that this hotel will be part of a trip to Istanbul that we will never forget.
