As a lone backpacker, I don't look for 5 stars hotels when visiting tourist attractions, or spending the night in a city. Cordial House might not be what most people expect from a hotel/hostel, but if you don't mind a few flaws, then you'll have access to most tourist attractions in Istanbul. Just a few blocks from the Aya Sophia,...

A very good hostel located in a key position for the visit of the city. The sheets are clean, the rooms also and they are not so small. The common baths are usable. The price is very very cheap. I don't give five stars only because of some bad smell in the common areas and of the lack of as...

Amazing location near everything you'd need - shops, transport, mosques, attractions, food, etc! We had a private room and it was brilliant, with a little balcony as well. Everything seemed new and clean, the little bar is perfect to chill out and the WiFi just about stretched to our room, if not you can chill downstairs or in the seating...

Fabulous location near the trams and incredible hospitality- clean rooms (for a hostel set up) however observe caution when booking the airport shuttle. It's 15 TL per person and it leaves several times a day- take the earlier shuttle to avoid stress and time restraints at the airport. My sister and I booked the 1040 shuttle for a 1425 international...

Besides the prime location right in the heart of Old Istanbul,near the Bazaar and the museums, Cordial House staff made my stay quite enjoyable. Mehmet Krbckoglu provided excellent service and helped me navigate through parts of Istanbul when I first arrived. I work as a hotel front desk receptionist back home, and the amount of service Mehmet provided was truly...

Not a bad place to spend the night whilst checking out some of Istanbul's historic Sultanahmet quarter. I stayed in a basic but fair sized and tidy room, with an en suite bathroom that was okay for a shower at the end of the day despite constantly having a little fly buzzing around it (either it was one very hardy...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood 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.
