First of all, whatever little criticism I'll write, the value for money was excellent! We got a flight and hotel deal through Expedia that was very affordable. We (an elderly couple) stayed for a week - our first time in Turkey. The Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was decently sized, so even if we would have to spend ore time in the room it would have been comfortable. They have an excellent breakfast service at the roof restaurant including freshly made omelettes or fried eggs - a perfect start for the day. The view from there is fantastic. The location of the hotel cannot be any better - in the heart of the city, five minutes to the Hagia Sophia or tho the Blue Mosque, 2 minutes to the tram. There were three minor items that the hotel may consider to improve. Although very clean the room furniture and bathroom had looked a bit worn out. Number two: the internet (free) was hardly usable for more than the occasional check of emails. Coming from the EU mobile calls would be very expensive and Skype-calls would have been handy, but they were impossible. Number three: the selection of TV programs was quite limited, at least for people coming from Germany. But who needs TV when there is a city to explore? Again, all in all we were very satisfied with our choice and would always recommend a stay in this hotel.

Went for a week's stay to Istanbul and we stayed at the Ambassador Hotel. The staff were very hospitable and friendly. Especially a gentlemen by the name of Sezgin who would serve breakfast time in the mornings. He was very charming. The hotel had average sized rooms, good breakfast options and excellent location. Being a 5 minute walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia... you can't fault it. The tram is also a 2 minute walk from the hotel making commuting very easy. We would definitely stay at the hotel again and recommend it highly.

Stayed at the hotel over my wife's birthday staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome all were kind helpful and friendly! Breakfast was perfect freshly prepared each morning by our brilliant chef the views from the terrace were unbeatable, spectacular all around you could see the history with everything within minutes of the hotel!!! Would definitely recommend to everyone ☺️ and if we are lucky enough to go back would stay in this hotel again.

We stayed for 6 nights in this hotel. Very nice clean establishment and near all attractions. Customer service is a 5 stars. Very warm welcoming arrival and departure. The front desk team are excellent and professional. A special thank you for Mr. Umaid and Mrs. Nouray For the excellent service they gave us during our stay. I will book there again and again.

What a perfect location! Right next to the Blue Mosque and in the heart of the old town. The view from the breakfast room is breathtaking of the Blue Mosque, and the Hagia Sophia. The rooms are clean and inviting and quiet. Wonderful place to stay! And the staff were all so helpful and informative.

Everything was great during this trip. And amazing staying at Ambassador Hotel also played an important role. Very friendly and responsible staff who always ready to help and to advise! Great location and unforgettable view from the terrace which will not leave anyone indifferent, very good service!! If you want to feel the spirit of historical Istanbul choose this place. You will not regret, I promise!

Amazing Team, very Helpful and Supportive. Hotel Location is in the Heart of Istanbul, Tram within few seconds walking Distance - AyaSofya and Sultan Ahmet Mosque - Few Minutes away. Strongly recommended. Maybe music in the Lobby would be a good add to break the silence.

Lovely clean hotel in the heart of the historic area of istanbul. Very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast is on the terrace with an amazing view of the blue mosque. Will definitely book this hotel again.

We had the most amazing time in Istanbul specially staying in Hotel Ambassador was a great decision we made . The kitchen staff was amazingly great . Umet and Husain(We named him chocolatey boy) were really helpful and very welcoming people. Umet was very informative and helpful person we came across in the hotel staff. I love the traditional of how the hotel serves apple tea every time. Since i was traveling from US i was little hesitant because of all the news but trust me guys it was very safe and nice to be in Istanbul . The monuments and overall old city experience was great . Its a must place to visit And this hotel brings out the best of staying in old city as its walking distance to grand bazar , blue mosque and other monuments. We felt like home in Istanbul and didn't feel scared or unsafe even for a second .. Thank you Hotel Ambassador and its amazing staff for the best service and homecoming feeling that you all welcomed with .
