We stayed for a day at the Cordial House - enroute Tel Aviv from New Delhi. All the bookings were done on the internet with a pay after stay / tour option. I must admit - Tugrul is the most friendly hotelier I have come across ! We were short on time and the walking tour had just commenced when... More

This is a great place to stay in Istambul. In the heart of main turists attractions you have many options to visit just walking few minutes. I would be happy to have the opportunity to return back to Istambul and stay hosted at Cordial hostel again. Thanks

We stayed for 7 nights at the Cordial House, right in the middle of Sultanhamet, in a double room, with shared bathroom. It was a great little introduction to Turkey with friendly, and really helpful, reception guys, clean rooms and a great location, from where you can walk to all the major tourist spots - Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque,...

I stayed in a single room in this hostel for 3 nights and found it the best value for money of all the hostels I've stayed in. The location is excellent, right next door to the supermarket and 10min walk to the main attractions. I paid 15 euros a night for the single room and ended up with a room... More

Close to all attraction but almost each hotel in Sultanahmet is close to everything. We stayed in Cordial House Hotel in hostel room with no bathroom. We paid 60 Euro/per night, (booked 3 month ago) which is not very cheap in my opinion. Room ok, with beds ONLY, no duvet only blanket. No wardrobe, table, chair not even hook. Dirty... More

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.
