We have just returned from a city break to Istanbul and stayed at the Ambassador Hotel.This turned out to be a excellent choice. Very central location overlooks the Blue Mosque from roof terrace. Staff very helpful and pleasant,with the hotel reception particularly good in making arrangements for us.There was a wonderful choice of food at the buffet breakfast and nothing was too much trouble. There was a bit of a shortage of tables inside as it was too cold to sit outside so either share tables at breakfast or wait during the busy time.We used the hotel shuttle service to and from the airport which solve any transport issues. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel for a short city break.
