We were reconducted to this filthy place on our arrival to the city. It is probably the worst hotel experience in my life. The neighbour is just a nightmare. The place was filthy and nothing semmed to be properly working, I claimed to get my shower fixed and nobody did it. The staff seemed to be part of some low...

This hotel is a huge rip off. First there description of the property is a joke - the picture posted has either side blurred - for a good reason: it is in an Istanbul ghetto of refugees and the surrounding buildings are trashed out properties.

We stayed in the Amber Suites for 5 days and were pleasantly surprised by it's cleanliness and level of service, as well as it's location.

Just up the...

“nice view at breackfast, we had a street oriented room so it was a bit noisy (as there is the ritual to call the people to pray, so I think this is a general problem)”

“If you must, take a front room - so you don't have to watch the neighbors throwing garbage out the window. However, front rooms are a bit noisy as it is a busy street.”
