Amasra is not noted for it's lodging. We followed Trip Advisor recommendations and were very pleased. Owned by the town's mayor, we stayed in Emin overnight in midJuly 2013 in the efficiency apartment on the top floor. The apartment was clean and the private balcony overlooking the harbor made the price worth it. Air conditioning was welcome in the bedroom. There is a double bed (American size) and an extra cot. Outlets were provided but we couldn't receive the wi-fi although the signal was strong. Only one side of the bed has a light (there is an overhead light), so select that side if you're a night reader! The bathroom is good: clean, tiled, nicely lit, and a small window in the shower allows one a peek of the bay and town. The showerhead works very well--a pleasure. Hand gel and shower gel is provided as is a hair dryer. Bring your own bar soap, shampoo (if you don't like using shower gel), and tissues.
A separate kitchen offers a minibar and cooking facilities. We didn't use them, wanting to sample the local food at restaurants. But it contains everything you need to eat in the apartment.
Host Sennur Kullu is wonderful--friendly and efficient. She has worked as host here for ten years and can anticipate your needs. Breakfast is served in a very pretty courtyard filled with trees and flowers. Sennur guides you to the extensive breakfast buffet, makes you a delicious Turkish egg dish, and offers either tea or Nescafe. The bakery next door supplies the fresh breads AND the delicious smells of baked goods.
Being in the middle of town (great for walking), parking is a problem. But it you're lucky, there's room in the square near the hotel or in the autopark nearby.
A block away is the good fish restaurant Mustafa Amca's Canli Balik Restaurant where we ate twice. Restaurant abound, all within walking distance, as is the shoreline. We will return in the fall when fishing resumes and definitely stay here. Highly recommended.
