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.
