Go down the escalator, through the sliding glass doors, turn right and follow the Hafif Metro/Light rail system signs along the broad underground concourse to the Havalimanı (Airport) Metro station on the left at the end. This concourse beneath the parking garage connects the Domestic and International terminals. Buy one or two Metro tokens (jeton) at the booth—the price is marked on a paper sign in the window, and should be TL2 each. You'll need two tokens to travel from Atatürk Airport to Sultanahmet, Eminönü or Kabataş. Pass through the turnstile, descend the escalator (or elevator) and board a Metro train for Aksaray. The Havalimanı (Airport) station is the end of this Metro line, so you can board any train—they all go to Aksaray. You can't get the wrong train. Get out at Zeytinburnu, the 6th stop. Exit the Metro train and purchase another token to enter the tram turnstiles on the same platform. Look for trams marked Eminönü or Kabataş (not Bağcılar). (Eminönü and Kabataş are stations on the same line: Eminönü is part way along to the tram terminus at Kabataş.) Board the tram to Eminönü and/or Kabataş. Because Zeytinburnu is the western terminus of the tram line, you have a good chance of finding an empty seat. (If the tram is already crowded and your luggage is bulky, you may want to wait for the next tram so that you can get a seat. Ride the tram eastbound to CEMBERLITAS, the 15th stop (the recorded station-stop announcement says “CEMBERLITAS”, and get out. Then take a right on the first turn and walk 60 meters straight, you will see Cordial House.
