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.

What a find! This boutique hotel is right in the middle of the historical town surrounded by great restaurants and within a couple of mins of all the main attractions. The rooftop breakfast is amazing and the staff are wonderful. They even organised a surprise birthday cake and celebration for my birthday after noticing my birthday at check in. This... More

We stayed here for one night before leaving Istanbul to come back home. Fantastic location, minutes from Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace. Efficient service and wonderful breakfast. Great value considering the price included one way airport transfer, breakfast and a crib. The view from the terrace restaurant is amazing also. I would definitely stay again.

Recently, on our first visit to Turkey, we stayed at the Ambassador for almost a week. We selected the hotel based on its glowing reviews in TripAdvisor. In reality, our stay turned out even better than expected, for two reasons. First, Ambassador's friendly staff. Every one of them was welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. Coming back to the hotel after a... More

Finally got to visit fantastic Istanbul and feel that I was very lucky to come across Hotel Ambassador on Trip Advisor. I spent six nights in this charming and congenial, immaculately kept small hotel in a superb location only a short walk from the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi with several excellent restaurants literally outside the door.

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.
