The Staff stood out more than the hotel!

The pictures are a little deceiving - front of hotel is not recognisable from picture. Room was VERY small - just fitted a queen bed and space to shuffle around. Bathroom facilities were good. Food for breakfast was OK - nothing special. The staff made the difference. The staff were very helpful. They were casual but responded to our every need and helped to interpret when needed. Around the corner - by the prison (Yes, I said prison) there are a lot of fish restaurants - to get a good cheap beer, go to the local bar opposite the front door of the prison, beer was half the price of the restaurants. Hotel was located in a fair location..... you have to walk up hill to get anywhere - so if you don't like hills, take a cab, they are reasonably priced. Transport to and from airport - take a cab, about $25 to $30 US. Would not recommend hotel to others unless they were backpacking or just wanted to do it cheap! Roof top of hotel looks out over thewater.... however you also look at all the roof tops of houses that look like they are falling apart and big seaguls hang out on the roof top too, expect to have some close calls with the birds when they come into land!

Best Western was the best

Best Western was the best in my Turkey experience. Good quality of room, all amenities worked well, stuff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast on the top floor with view of sea was pleasant. I will definitely stay again in this hotel next time in Istanbul.

Good experience of real life

Good positioned respect to most of the principal historical sites and the Bazar. The district is still a living district with real life and working places of small business. Most buildings are in reconstruction and are not a residential area !!! The personnel of the Hotel are very friendly and give you all held needed. Rooms are confortable, but very small !! Internet service is free and very fast.

Best Western Amber Istanbul

The hotel was fine and we were satisfied with our experience except one thing. The "shuttle service" that the hotel supplies has to be reserved in advance and it cost 70 Euro. "Shuttle service" needs to be clearly stated that it is not free. Other than that we had a good experience. Would definitelyx recommend it to anyone staying in Istanbul near the city center and historic sites.

Turkey experience

Everything was amazing. The staff was very helpful. Tamara, my dog, was well treated and respected.The room was smaller than what we are accustomed here in the US.
