My first trip to Istanbul, and a very short one at that, so The Ambassador was perfect for my needs. The airport transfer upon arrival was most excellent as there was no way I'd find the place on my own! When the shuttle could not get on the small side street to the hotel (it was very crowded at the... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel from May 8th-12th 2015. This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We had seen the pictures online and read many great reviews, but you must see it to believe it. We arrived at the hotel on May 8th and we were greeted by Mr. Sinan at the front desk. He... More

Great hotel in the heart of the historical district of Istanbul. + Location: 10 mins walking distance to Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia, Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque, Basilica Cistern. A bit more to Grand Bazaar. Great tourist location especially for a first timer in Istanbul. Tons of high quality (and expensive) restaurants downstairs. One negative side: It is a bit hard to...

Excellent attentive service, amazing location very close to the blue mosque, comfortable beds and clean bedrooms coupled with a generous varied delicious breakfast. I could not fault the Ambassador and have recommended it to many for short breaks in Istanbul.

The Ambassador staff has been amazing for the 13 years I've had the pleasure of knowing them. Derya the cook, with her oh-so-rich treats for afternoon tea; Sezgin, the best waiter in Istanbul; Nuray in the office, if you ever have a problem with ANYTHING; Sinan in reception, always at your service and very professional; and of course Gul and...

Very nice breakfast with lots of things to choose. Splendid view over Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque from the terrace when having breakfast. Good location for walks to the bazars and other things to see.

First time in Istanbul. Hotel recommended by local colleague. Excellent location in the heart of the old city on walking distance of all historical point of interest. Friendly staff, small rooms but with all facilities, great breakfast at roof terrace. Only airco didn't work properly. Recommend this hotel if you are a couple of days in Istanbul. Price-quality good.

Located at the heart of Sultanahmet, close to the tram stop, this hotel is ideal for exploring historic Istanbul. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was not too big, but comfortable and nicely furnished. The hotel's terrace, where breakfast is served, offers a wonderful view of the city. The chef, a charming young woman called Derya, prepares a... More
