We stayed for four nights on a business trip with a little sight seeing. The hotel was in the perfect location (safe, convenient, and walkable to everything) and we really appreciated the Turkish hospitality the staff provided. The really went the extra mile to make sure you felt comfortable and at home.

Spent six nights at Istanbul sightseeing with my wife. The city is worth seeing, and if your on a limited budget, book at Ambassador Hotel without a second thought. It's a quaint small hotel with 22 rooms, but very neat and clean. It's at the heart of Sultanahmet, where most of the attractions are, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi...

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect - in the old city and right beside the Blue Mosque. Steps away from the tramline. Dozens of restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The view from the fifth floor breakfast buffet area is incredible.

Front desk staff is friendly and quite helpful with tour info, etc. The hotel is located a short walk from all the major attractions. The breakfast is a real treat. Food is great, service is wonderful, and...

Cons:This hotel is a small one and not exactly a luxury hotel compared to the price. Room size is a bit small and the window cannot bring any daylight so later on we moved to a upper floor room. Ròoms dont have any view though have all the amenities. Pros: All the stuffs were very friendly and cooperative. They helped...

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at the Ambassador Hotel and found it the perfect base for our visit. We arranged a transfer through the hotel and we were met at the airport once we cleared customs, great to be able to add this onto our room bill opposed to having to worry about finding a taxi. Reception was...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood 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.
