The location to the main spots are very accessible. Just bear in mind that there's no wifi at room and you have to go downstairs. Rooms were ok but a bit messy for all the sharing rooms. Kind and polite staffs. You can cook as well whenever you like to prepare your own food. Budget friendly hotel. Love to check... More

I like this hotel very much. During last five years, every time when I come to Istanbul I prefer to stay here. Very friendly personal, nice breakfast and everything is close, just in walking distance to historical center.

It's a great hostel, very friendly staff, clean and nice. I've been there twice, both in a shared room (9 beds) and double bed room with own bathroom and i liked it both ways. You get good quality for the given price, and the location is perfect! The only thing i wouldn't recommend is breakfast, i think it's quite expensive... More

This is one of the better hostels that I have ever stayed in. I was here for three nights. As a young female traveling alone, I felt perfectly at ease here. They are fastidious about cleanliness, rooms are simple but comfortable, and the staff is attentive and helpful. Plus you can't beat the location--a 5 minute walk from the Blue... More

The hostel is in the very city centre and close to many landmarks and key locations. There were shops and cafes around. I got to the hostel very easily from airport thanks to the Cordial's direction description. And the hostel just 2 min away from the tram stop. The room was clean and tidy. The staff was super friendly and... More

The gentlemen at Cordial House are some of the finest hosts in Turkey. They give unique travel advice with individual planning help, serve a fantastic traditional breakfast, and provide an invaluable lounge environment for meeting and sharing stories with other travelers. I've made good friends on each visit there. I've stayed at Cordial almost ten memorable times during the last... More

Stayed here on a brief layover in Istanbul. Take the train in from the airport, easy walk to the hotel. Perfect location for walking around the Golden Horn, with plenty of restaurant/eatery options for meals at any time of day or night. Get woken up by the call to prayer and go watch the sunrise over the Bosphorus.

Stayed for 3 nights. The hotel has a very good location, with a tram station right outside, and street food eateries all around the building. The rooms and beds are clean. WiFi is available only in the common areas though...and the breakfast isn't that great. I would rather get out of the hotel early and sample the restaurants outside. Impressed.... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
