Amazingly friendly and attentive staff. Clean, comfortable and quiet room with a disappointing view. However, the views from the breakfast room and terrace more than compensated for it. Breakfast to suit all tastes - delicious omelettes made to order. The lift only goes up to the fourth floor whereas the breakfast room is on the fifth floor, accessed by stairs... More

This hotel is not the biggest, but it is close to all the attractions and the service was great. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The breakfast selection was wonderful and included an omlet station. What really makes this hotel great is the staff. Our last day in town was my girlfriend's birthday. We had not mentioned it to anyone,... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week staying at the Ambassador Hotel. I can not speak highly enough about the friendly, efficient and helpful service we experienced there. They arranged the transfers from the airport both ways which was so helpful. We were greeted with delicious apple tea and cake after our journey and could also enjoy... More

Excellent hotel in many ways. It is clean and comfortable. We were in a triple. The room was tight, but adequate. The rooms and public spaces were very clean. The staff, without exception, was friendly and helpful. They served tea in the lobby, along with cakes, which was a nice touch. It was very relaxing to sit in the lobby... More

Our 4 night stay at the Ambassador Hotel in Istanbul was one of the best experiences we have had. The location could not be better. Its just a walk down to the landmarks such as the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazar and spice market. Room was comfortable and clean. Lots of food choices around as well as...

My wife and I have stayed in hotels around this nationhood before but Ambassador Hotel is by far the best we ever stayed. Clean and good size rooms. Super location! Right around the corner from Hagia Sophia and most of other historical monuments. Extremely friendly and attentive staff; especially Mr. Sinan who gave us great recommendations made our stay even...

What can we add to the already excellent reviews from all previous guests - only that I won't ever have to look for another hotel in Istanbul for our yearly sightseeing and shopping break. I have surfed the Internet and listened to recommendations for so many hotels in the past that have turned out to be disappointing but I have... More

I loved staying in this hotel! It is close to the Blue Mosque and other popular sites that one may want to visit while in the beautiful country of Istanbul, Turkey. The tram is also near by the hotel. I stayed two nights and left on the third day. I loved this hotel because of it's great staff and wonderful... More

I did not stay in the hotel, but my two friends and I all came to enjoy the Turkish Bath and Massage experience at the Ambassador Spa. The masseur, Zeki, was incredibly professional and talented. We enjoyed a private bath with peaceful and relaxing ambiance followed by personal oil massages. I would recommend the experience 100% and bring your friends!... More

We loved staying at this hotel! It was very close to all of the main sights we wanted to see, and it is a very short walk from the tram (For those travelers arriving from the airport, you need to take the train, and then transfer to the tram. Very easy process). We only stayed one night, but everything was... More
