The hotel is nicely located with almost all the attractions within walking distance. The view from the terrace is breathe taking, with river and Blue Mosque in sight. The amenities are fairly enjoyable too. Delicious food, standard room service and housekeeping, and hospitality makes the stay comfortable. But for me, above all, was the perfect atmosphere of the hotel and... More

If you are after that little special touch to your holiday, The Ambassador Hotel is the perfect choice. The hotel is located perfectly in the middle of the Sulanahment area, acoss the street from the blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. The tram is easily accessible just behind the hotel and is a great and easy way to get around Istanbul.... More

Love this hotel - the rooms, the staff, the view, everything! Second visit to this hotel was just as good as the first. The location is terrific, just a stones throw from the Blue Mosque. Quaint restaurants line the street. The staff cannot be beat - everyone from the front desk to the Demry in the breakfast room. Highly recommend.

My friend and I stayed at the Ambassador Hotel for five nights in June 2015. The location could not be better! From the terrace, the view is amazing! The Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, all of the major sights of Sultanahmet are right there! From the terrace one can also see the light rail stop where it is easy to ride... More

The staff made you feel so welcome and part of their family. It is close to all attractions, shops and great places to eat. They are only too willing to help you with any request. I would stay here again!

We choose this hotel because of all the excellent reviews on trip advisor and we don't have anything negative to report. We had 2 rooms for 5 nights in June 2015. The rooms were small but clean, relatively spartan and the beds were hard (but all the beds we had in Turkey over 3 weeks were hard by US standards).... More

Dear Guests, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. It is nice to hear that you had such a nice time in our hotel.

We stayed at this hotel last year and now again this year. You can't beat the location. The staff are always very helpful, especially the newcomer (I forgot his name, I know, I know). Any who, the hotel was very clean as usual, and they are always eager to help you with your tours or making local calls, etc. I... More

The hotel is in a brilliant central location only a few minutes from the Blue mosque and the sultanahmet tram stop. Close to lots of shops and restaurants. The room was very cramped but you can look past this due to the fantastic location. The staff were friendly and helpful but did feel like there were a little but annoyed... More

The most friendliest and outgoing staff I have ever encountered. Really helpful and knowledgable. Turkish hospitality at its finest. We were served delicious cake and tea when we checked in. Room was clean and great and the rooftop terrace has the best view in the city. I recommend this place to everyone

Great location, fabulous breakfasts with splendid roof garden view, helpful and friendly staff (especially Sinan, the night manager). Late afternoon tea and cake encourages conversation between clients. Clean, pleasant room.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
