I was on a 24 hour layover in Istanbul en route to Italy. The staff at Ambassador Hotel arranged pickup and dropoff services free of charge at Ataturk, gave us great recommendations for food and nightlife, and set us up for a half day tour of the highlights of Istanbul. The staff was friendly and outgoing. The view of the... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Ambassador Hotel. It was my first time to Istanbul, so I decided to order the airport pick-up offered by the hotel. It worked smoothly and in no time I was at the hotel. The room was nice and clean. There was some noise from the alley next to the hotel, but I'm a... More

Not only is the location close to the tram and nearby sites, but it also has an fantastic rooftop terrace with a view of it all. The staff was overly generous. We were caught in a torrential downpour on the way in with our daughters and our luggage. The staff graciously grabbed us towels and went the extra mile so... More

Other destinations like the spice market or the great market are within a half an hour walk. The hotel has nice and clean rooms (it sometimes smelled a little) and a great breakfast at the... More

This is a great little boutique hotel. I selected this hotel based on reading reviews in TripAdvisor. I made reservations through Travelocity about two months before my trip but now I wouldn’t hesitate making reservations direct via e-mail. The hotel is well located in close proximity to main attractions. The rooftop deck is a great amenity for views, breakfast and... More

I had read reviews of impressive staff here but wow. They picked up my daughters birthday at checkin and had a cake on the top deck 15 min after getting to the room. Not even asked for. The service is incredible and the front desk will help with anything. Got me pizza and delivers it to the room. I love... More

This is a great hotel located in the heart of Sultanahmet. Very comfortable rooms. Fantastic roof top restaurant for breakfast overlooking Blue Mosque, Aysa Sophia and the Bosphorus. Above all, extremely friendly staff. Great value.

The Ambassador Hotel is ideally situated in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul. The main attractions; Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Basilica Cistern are right on your doorstep. If you fancy to walk a little further, you can follow the tram line and walk to the Galata Bridge where you can see the fishermen casting their lines and waiting... More

This is a great little hotel tucked away on a picturesque side street, surrounded by eateries and shops, and a quick walk to the Blue Mosque, St. Sophia and Topkapi. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, offering tea and snacks as soon as you arrive. They are knowledgeable in all tours, restaurants, any information you need. We liked the... More

A small hotel in a perfect location. Everything is literally on your doorstep! I had booked a triple room with 3 single beds for my sister and I along with her adult daughter ,as we'd arranged to meet up in Istanbul for 4 nights. When I arrived ( earlier than planned , due to flight re- schedule ) the room... More
