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

I booked this hotel due to its location in Istanbul. No regrets, it is located in a very central area and at a walking distant of many attractions . The staff extremely attentive. Great breakfast every morning with a view from its terrace which is like a postcard view. I´ll be happy to come back

This small hotel in Istanbul is great value for a fantastic location. The staff are so friendly and extremely attentive. Lots of great eating places nearby but the rooftop restaurant is a great option. Wonderful view of the Blue Mosque and other iconic sites in Istanbul.

Location is really good, around a 3minute walk to the tram stop and less than 5 to the basilica cistern and Aya Sofia. You can walk down to the ferries at Eminonu, the main station and the Galata bridge in around 25mins. There are numerous restaurants and foreign currency exchanges in the immediate area.

I think the most notable part of my stay here was Mr Umit at reception, he was definitely very welcoming and seems to brighten the experience of people he serves, including myself.

Warm, welcoming staff with genuine feel of hospitality to their guests. It was my first visit to an Islamic country (during Ramazan) and I was unsure what to expect- the warm welcome only confirmed my belief that traveling proves the basic goodness of people, everywhere.

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.
