I've stayed that the Ambassador Hotel several times and have always had a wonderful stay. The rooms are modest, and the top rooms get a lot of sunlight during the summer. The rooms are not air conditioned after you leave, so a good thing to do is to insert any card you have into the slot in your room to... More

- While waiting for Check in, staff served Tea and Cake. - Very close to major tourist spots can be reached within 5 min by walk. - Room is a bit small but clean and quiet. - Rooftop has nice view. - Main entrance is a bit difficult to find because it is located at small alley between restaurants.

The location is perfect being near the tourist sites and the tram station as well. Could walk to most locations and the terrace has a fantastic view of the city. Staff were friendly and might be the best hotel for people on a budget.

We loved this hotel! The staff were all really nice and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. We loved the selection for breakfast and sitting outside looking over the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Great location, walking distance to the bazaar! Stayed as couple for 3 nights in May 2016 Thank you Ambassador!

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.
