Ideally, Ammonia should read 0 ppm. 0.25 or 0.5 is stressful for the fish, and I believe anything higher can kill them rather easily.

Bettas, if I remember, prefer slightly acidic water. So that would be slightly below 7 (7 being neutral). MY PH is somewhere between 7 and 7.5.

LOL @ okijapan! But yeah, what Jupiter said, PH near 7, but a little below if possible.. and with the others you're aiming for 0 ammonia and nitrites, but anything under 20ppm nitrates is acceptable.
