The Ambassador staff has been amazing for the 13 years I've had the pleasure of knowing them. Derya the cook, with her oh-so-rich treats for afternoon tea; Sezgin, the best waiter in Istanbul; Nuray in the office, if you ever have a problem with ANYTHING; Sinan in reception, always at your service and very professional; and of course Gul and...

Very nice breakfast with lots of things to choose. Splendid view over Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque from the terrace when having breakfast. Good location for walks to the bazars and other things to see.

First time in Istanbul. Hotel recommended by local colleague. Excellent location in the heart of the old city on walking distance of all historical point of interest. Friendly staff, small rooms but with all facilities, great breakfast at roof terrace. Only airco didn't work properly. Recommend this hotel if you are a couple of days in Istanbul. Price-quality good.

Located at the heart of Sultanahmet, close to the tram stop, this hotel is ideal for exploring historic Istanbul. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was not too big, but comfortable and nicely furnished. The hotel's terrace, where breakfast is served, offers a wonderful view of the city. The chef, a charming young woman called Derya, prepares a... More

This hotel has great staff, Nuray and the other members of staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast out on the roof top terrace is a great place to take in the view. The rooms are 3-4 star.

Very good location. Close to everything in old town!!! Tons of restaurants downstairs. We had a family room, the room inside is a little small but enough space. Breakfast is very nice with a lot of choices. The view from terrace is stunning, we took a lot of sunrise picture from there.

The perfect place to stay in Sultanahmet; within walking distance of all the area's magnificent attractions. From pick-up at the airport until our return trip nothing was too much for the brilliant staff. The room was clean and pleasant and breakfast could not have been better. The choice was awesome.
