We booked 2 rooms for our family of 6 including our baby of 18 months. Stay was for 4 nights. The best thing about this hotel is LOCATION, LOCATION and LOCATION. All major attractions in Sultanahmet are within walking distance & to get elsewhere Tram is outside entrance. Hotel and rooms are clean, staff are very efficient. Special mention to... More

Friends had recommended the Ambassador Hotel to us and we are so glad they did. We stayed at the hotel three separate times during the past month (for a total of nine days). We loved it. We stayed in one of the rooms on the 5h floor which was roomy with lots of windows. Our room was a few steps... More

This little gem is located just one block from the Blue Mosque. I loved the breakfast from the rooftop terrace overlooking the mosque. The rooms are small and simply furnished, but they are clean. The staff is great, helpful and friendly. The hotel also has a hamam located in the basement. The Turkish bath was a great experience and as... More

From the second you walk through the door of this small central hotel the staff take care of your every wish. We were greeted with Apple Tea and Baclava to take away the stresses of the journey and boost our energy for the evening ahead. Extremely close to the Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar and the "more up market" Bazaar next... More

This hotel was outstanding in ever single way. I was delighted with my stay of 5 nights. The hotel staff are amazing, memorising my preferences and the little details about me. Their service in every department was impeccable. It is probably in the best location of Istanbul. 30 seconds walk from the Sultan Ahmet, 5 mins away from the Grand... More

I LOVED my first trip to Istanbul and went to this hotel from a friend's advice, she was RIGHT! GREAT location, service, airport pick-up, walking distance to many sites, etc. We felt "at home" there & VERY safe. I would go back there for sure! I've been to 35+ countries & this trip was at the top of my list!

I absolutely loved this hotel! I could walk to all the attractions and historical sites. You can see the Mosque from breakfast, I felt like i was in a fairytale! The staff was very attentive and friendly and were always able to help with directions and ideas.
