              • Older travelers

                Clean, basic budget hotel. Close to major tourist sites. Can open door to balcony (not much of a view though at back). Breakfast basic but reasonable.

              • Group of friends

                The perfect budget choice; central location close to all the major attractions of Sultanahmet; easy transport options to discover Istanbul; comfortable, safe and clean hotel (we lived in room with private bath); well-educated recreationalist, who was very friendly and helpful

                Great location, kind staff, low price, comfortable and clean rooms. Exactly what I was looking for.

              • Single

                Brilliant place with excellent staff and reasonable prices. The hotel is also very central: 5minutes walk from the famous Blue Mosque.

                The rooms have fans rather than propoer air conditioning. Not always a good idea when the temperature is above 30c.

                a nice hotel and hostel if u dont expect too much thing...clean room,helping staff,central location...suits for backpackers,students

                prices were a little bit high in my opinion,they could put some glasses at least,to the rooms since u can bring ur own food and drink...

                The best price, best location, most friendly staff, quite comfortable rooms, Cordial House offers more than that. For those who look for a great budget hotel in old part of Istanbul, Sultanahmet Cordial House comes as the first option.

                Perfect location. Near restaurant and tram station. Just walking distance to Grand Bazaar and other historical places.

                Buffet breakfast - just a light breakfast.(bread..boiled egg plus juice and coffee only). No other option.

              • Family with children

                Wonderful location--Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and the Grand Bazaar all within easy walking distance

                Very difficult to find (driving) with all the one way streets and pedestrian areas.

              • Older travelers

                An excellent location. You can not expect better than this. Only a few minutes walk to the main tourist attractions such as the Grand Bazaar or the Blue Mosque and 200m from the tram station.

                We stayed 6 nights. They never came to change our sheets nor clean the room. Someone came to empty the rubbish bin, that's all. The floor carpet was stained and felt really filthy. No facilities to wash our cloths which is annoying when you are backpackers.

              • Family with children

                Very centrally located. Staff were quite helpful. Reception was quite helpful, the Manager Tugrul was very cordial and nice and a proactive person.

                Pathetic breakfast to say the least, highly repetitive. Extremely poor value for the money, small bath/ washroom (private), facilities in the room virtually nil

              • Couple

                The breakfast was a buffet and was a very good value.

                The hotel staff were rather uninformed about transportation around the area and Turkey in general. I asked for help to book a train ticket, and the staff simply told me to ask someone else for help. Linens were also not provided. The price was also very steep for a budget hostel.

              • Group of friends

                very good location (only a few meters from the most famous sightseeings, tram stop only a couple of meters from the door, a supermarket in the building where the hotel is located), clean room, cheap price, frienly and helpful staff, breakfast is also ok

                Very good experience,Excellent location,Clean rooms and bathrooms,value for money

                when we were shown our rooms...the vacuum cleaner was still in the room,although we have booked the room 1 day before but they were still cleaning our rooms..they were not prepared for it...we called to clean it up again...and then they came..they also put some paint on the walls infront of they didnt arrange breakfast half an hour early for us...most of the hotels did so....but it was ok...

                The staffs were very helpful with city tours & things to do in Istanbul. It was located close to main attraction and tram station.

                The breakfast menu need more variety and the public kitchen need more space to store food and there ware no cutlery and sufficient utilities.
