I had a pleasant stay at the Ambassador Hotel in Sultan Ahmet Area, Istanbul with my family. The Hotel enjoys a prime location in front of Sultan Ahmet Mosque and High Sophia. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is nice and room service is very good.

Had family room for our stay. Rooms small but clean. Breakfast amazing lots to choose from cereal cheese bread salad eggs and more. Free tea and cake on arrival, it's right in the heart of sultanahmet. The best is roof top bar what a view. I would stay here again yes no hesitation.

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.
