I think the front desk manager Mr Sînan, was very welcoming and made the place feel homely. I booked my stay in Istanbul through AirBNB for 4 nights in April but the condition of the apartment was not up to standard and all of us decided to just get out from there after 2 nights and look for a hotel....

This hotel is so close to the Blue Mosque you can walk there in a matter of minutes. So when you go shopping, it is easy to take your purchase back to the room. The view from the terrace is superb! The breakfast buffet had many delicious choices. The people working here were quite friendly and helpful. The only downside... More

It is situated right in the centre of the tourist are and adjacent to Aghia Sophia and the Blue Mosque both of which are a few minutes walk away. It is right on the tram route from the airport to the city centre and therefore very easy... More

Since the moment we walked in the personal atention we received was great. Erol at the front desk was always very helpful and Cesguin was also very helpful. We forgot our ids in the safe box when we left and the manager was so kind to send them to Germany to us. Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed at the Ambassador Hotel Istanbul in third week of March 2014. It is very central in Sultanahmet part of the Istanbul, two minutes walk from Blue Mosque or Aya Sophia. Although located in a back street and takes a while to find if you are on foot, still location is perfect for tourist. Staff were very friendly, happy... More

There is a tram on the street right outside and the location itself is wonderful. Easy walking distance to Agia Sophia, Blue Mosque and... More
