Ideal gelegen für StadtbesichtigungPosted Oct 7, 2015
Pros: Die Dachterrasse, auf der das Frühstück serviert ist, ist genial, die Aussicht atemberaubend. Das Buffet ist sehr gut, das Personal sehr freundlich.
Cons: Für uns hat alles gepasst (Paar, 53/42, 4 Tage Istanbul, Sehenswürdigkeiten anschauen...)
Location: Perfekt in der Altstadt gelegen. Blaue Moschee, Haiga Sophia, Topkapipalast 5 Minuten, Großer Basar 15 Minuten
Das Hotel ist ein ideal gelegener Ausgangspunkt für eine Stadtbesichtigung. Die Zimmer und Bäder sind recht klein, aber es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht. Wer ein großzügiges Luxushotel sucht, ist hier falsch. Wer ein nettes Hotel mit einem guten Preis/Leistungsverhältnis sucht und keine großen Ansprüche hinsichtlich Platz hat, ist genau richtig.

A superb hotel in a stunning location.Posted Sep 17, 2015
Pros: There's a hamam(Turkish bath) in the hotel at extra cost. A rooftop terrace. Food at the hotel is good.
Location: Centrally located close to Aya Sofya museum. Lots of lovely eateries nearby, including the superb Khorsani & Anatolia and the Harab'be Cafe Bar.
The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Sultanahmet. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are of an adequate size and the hotel is clean. I would most certainly go there again.

Easy. Convenient. Lovely staff.Posted Sep 10, 2015
Lovely place to stay. Within walking distance of all attractions in the Old City. Also close to tramline. The view from the rooftop terrace is spectacular. It was one of the main reasons why I chose this place and it did not disappoint. Rooms are small but clean. The staff were lovely and always helpful, often going out of their way to organise things for you.

Nice Hotel in a good location.Posted Sep 8, 2015
Not far from the Sultanahmet tram stop, this hotel is ideally located to start your discovery of this historic city. Staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. Amazing view from the breakfast terrace of the Blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Bosphorous and the coast.

Great location for all the historical sights.Posted Aug 26, 2015
Pros: Staff and breakfast with a view!
Cons: Room was a little on the small side but we weren't in it much.
Location: All places of historical interest. SultanAhmet tram station which takes you everywhere.
Welcoming staff made this stay particularly good. On arrival we were offered some apple tea and cake which we had whilst chatting to the reception staff.The location is amazing and perfect for a short stay when time is precious. Breakfast included everything you could possibly wish for, including freshly made eggs any way; the omelette was great. I can't really fault anything, we trammed, walked, ferried and bussed Istanbul, I think we saw it all!!!

Nice hotel in excellent locationPosted Jul 30, 2015
Pros: Location, cleanliness, helpful staff ( including speaking English)
Cons: More drawer space for clothes.
Location: The Blur Mosque and Hagia Sophia are very close and Topkapi Palace is also walkable.
The Ambassador is a very nice hotel in an exceptional location for the major sights in Istanbul. We booked the deluxe room, since the others looked small in the pictures, and it was fine. The hotel was very clean and they add many nice touches like fresh fruit and flowers in the room. The rooftop terrace has a nice view and they have a good breakfast that includes Turkish and American dishes. There are many restaurants within less than 100 yards walk, and there is a tram stop and a nice park very close by. The only issue we had was that the city power for the entire area was off for major parts of two days (obviously beyond control of the hotel). They have a generator for lighting and such, but it does not power the air conditioning or the elevator.

Great LocationPosted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: Location and staff attention
Cons: room size and view, towels smell
Location: all main attractions are nearby and good restaurants also
The hotel view at the roof top is amazing but from the bedroom is awful. the location is perfect near the blue mosque, the Hagia Sophia and most attractions and also near the tram which is very convenient. the breakfast was good with omelet made to order and many other choices. The bedrooms and bathrooms are small if compared to same class hotels I've been before. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. Overall I say I had a good stay when you take in consideration you go to Istanbul not to be in the hotel but to see all enchanting and joyful surroundings.
