The Ambassador is a Boutique style hotel ideally situated in the historic area of Sultanahmet. In less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel you will find yourself at the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, Basilica Cistern, Hagia Sophia and the Topkapi Palace. Walk a little further and you will be in the heart of the bustling Grand bazaar. With a tram stop literally on the door step, getting around Istanbul is quick and easy.

We will stay here again and we made friends with the staff.

It took us a while to find the hotel as it's hidden in a valley. However, it's at a great spot, at most 150 meters after you get off the tram station at Sultanahmet. You pass through a few cute restaurants and find your self in this hotel. The hotel is small, smaller than what you can see from the pictures. However, we were completely happy with our stay here. We booked a triple room and were actually given a room with 4 beds, which made up for the inconvenience that a smaller room could have given us. Our room was at the 5th floor, top floor, and right across from the dining room, which connects to the roof-top terrace. My husband does ink sketches as a hobby and this terrace was the perfect spot for him and other normal people's photo taking (like me :#). You get a beautiful view of the Blue Mosque and the Haghia Sophia. The morning breakfast to us, was very Turkish and we tried our best to taste everything, and we loved it. The nice kitchen lady made us omelet, and the Turkish melon was so sweet and mouth watering. One of the hotel manager grew up in the US then returned to Turkey, so he spoke very good English and was very nice to us. We stayed for one night at this hotel, went on a cruise the next day, and returned to Istanbul after 11 days. At that time, I found out that I needed to apply for Turkish visa again in order to disembark, but using the internet on the cruise ship was too inconvenient. So we came back to the hotel #since they are so close to the major attractions), and asked the managers where we could find an Internet Café with a computer and a printer. And they let us use the hotel's! Long story short, they gave us the one thing - convenience, wen we needed it the most, even when we were no longer staying at the hotel. So I'm giving the score of 5 to share the good experience, express my gratitude, and we will definitely stay there again!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Once you get off the tram, walk downslope, turn left into the first small street, then left again at the first alley. The direction sign is above your head, not so easy to see.

Great staff, great location

I picked this hotel based on reviews online. The location is ideal, very helpful and hardworking staff. great view of the blue mosque from the terrace breakfast area. Wish the hotel rooms were bigger. Came to know that even the high priced hotel rooms are small. Some of the bathroom fixtures were old, wish there was more table space in the room to keep your things.

Perfect stay and perfect location

The Ambassador is a gem of an hotel. The views from the rooftop terrace cannot be beaten in Istanbul. The location is perfect being a short stroll from all the major sights of the city. The staff are friendly and helpful. The style is modern/boutique and the rooms, whilst small, are clean and comfortable. You need to remember that the rooms are just for sleeping in as any spare time you have should be spent on the rooftop!

Fantastic Birthday weekend

Absoloutely super staff, they were always doing their best to help us out with anything-and even surprising me with a birthday cake and the staff singing happy birthday! The amenities are more than good enough considering the value and the small number of total rooms in the hotel. Location was perfect for sightseeing and transport links and best of all the view from the rooftop terrace. I would rate this hotel ''Highly recommended''
