Stayed at this hotel very recently for 6 nights. The hotel was in a perfect location and staff were very friendly especially Hussain and others. The rooms were tight and made things harder with a toddler especially during his bath times. The view from our room wasnt great however the terrace view compensated for that. The breakfast was decent however... More

Fantastic location with close proximity to all the touristic sights in Istanbul, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and Grand Baazar. The staff were very helpful staff in offering advice on where to go and pitfalls to avoid in terms of local taxis and exchange shops.

Me and my family traveled to Turkey this July 2016 and stayed at Ambassador Hotel for 4 nights. In fact I won't call it a hotel. It's a "home" away from your own home. The most attractive thing about this place is- it is located at the heart of Sultanahmet. Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Tram station of Sultanahmet,... More

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.
