Great Little Hotel
We stayed here the first week of March 2009,,,nice friendly staff,,what ever your needs are,they will more than try to help you.
They do have a elevator(lift) here,,it goes to the fourth(4th) floor,restaurant is on the fifth(5th)floor.
Our room was adequate for our needs,clean and tidy.We were on the 5th floor,,there is only two rooms on that floor.
Unique Quality: The main thing about this hotel is the location,,,right in the middle of all the tourist sights and public transportation(tram).
Somewhat hidden and out of the way,but,all kinds of restaurants nearby. Great place for a homebase for exploration of the city.
Directions: sultanahmet area of Istanbul

After a full day's sightseeing in Istanbul, what better way to unwind and relax than to visit our traditional Turkish bath and Sauna? The Ambassador hotel is proud to be one of the few hotels in Sultanahment to provide this facility.
Recommended hotel near Blue Mosque
We stayed 4 nights in the Ambassador Hotel, a hotel which i can definitely recommend. The hotel is conveniently located next to the SultanAhmet tram stop and is only a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and the Hagya Sofia. The staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast buffet is a great start of the day. The breakfast room and the terrace offer a great view over the Blue Mosque and the Bosporus. There aren't really drawbacks, or it must be the call for the morning prayer from the nearby mosque in the early morning, but that's part of the Istanbul experioence.
The hotel offers a fitness room (free of charge) and you can get a massage from a professional masseur (20-30 euro).
Unique Quality: Location, great view

In the heart of Sultanahmet
For many years Istanbul's Hotel Ambassador has happily hosted foreign travelers, especially Americans, Canadians, and Australians, but also British and European visitors.
They come for the superbly convenient location, great friendly service, moderate prices, and perhaps especially for the hotel's own sauna and Turkish bath.
Located on a quiet cul-de-sac off Ticarethane Sokak right next to Sultanahmet, the Ambassador Hotel is literally steps from Divan Yolu, the Zeytinburnu-Kabatas tram, the Sunken Palace Cistern, and the Byzantine Hippodrome. In short, you're right next to all of Istanbul's prime sights.
It's right in the heart of Sultanahmet, as a visit to its rooftop terrace restaurant shows you: the Blue Mosque seems so close you could touch it.
Ticarethane Sokak, by the way, is full of little bistros, cafes, restaurants and kiraathanes (Turkish coffee houses) where you can smoke nargiles if you wish.
Very nice, reasonable hotel in old Istanbul
We stayed at this hotel last year. It's centrally located in the Sultanahmet district, pretty reasonably priced, and includes a full breakfast on a rooftop balcony with amazing views of the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. Staff is really helpful in booking tickets, tours, transpo to and from airport. Rooms are comfortable but simple. Great deal!
Unique Quality: Again the view from the rooftop terrace is great. They also serve dinner but we just went up there for drinks.
Highly recommended. Good location, just across the road from the Blue Mosque & AyaSofia. A quiet location. Friendly & helpful staff. However rooms are quite small but clean. It would be great if they could provide kettle/hot water flask.
Unique Quality: Great view from the cafe terrace
Very comfortable with a great location
Staying in your nice hotel was a great week to end my 3 month vacation. Very comfortable with a great location. And the breaksfasts were the best since the British B&Bs. I took some photos from the Terrace - they're at http://homepage.mac.com/stepheda/BestOfEurope/PhotoAlbum128.html.
Directions: Walking Distance to all monuments like Blue Mosque, St. Sophia, Topkapi Place, Grand Bazzar and Cistern.
Can you be any nearer?
This hotel is in a great location, about as close to Aya Sofia as you can get without being in it. Breakfast is on the rooftop terrace which has a great view. Rooms are nice and the staff are friendly. They also pick you up from the airport for free.
Unique Quality: Without doubt the best thing about this hotel is the location. The view from the terrace is an added bonus.
The Ambassador Hotel, comprising from the 19th century townhouses, is a First Class Hotel in Istanbul. It has a quiet location in the old city center Sultanahmet where you can find the heart of Istanbuls History - former Constantinople.
Unique Quality: When you come out of the hotel you will feel the culture of Byzantine Empire. The hotel is within walking distance to Byzantine and Ottoman Monuments, such as St. Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar. Also other Istanbul attactions - as the Cembelitas Hamami (Turkish Bath) and the Spice Market - are only a short walk away.
The Ambassador Hotel is a hotel with 22 rooms well furnished and in a warm athmosphare. Friendly and helpful multi-lingual staff offers all guests a warm welcome and hospitality which makes the Ambassador Hotel to one of the most charming hotels in Istanbul.
