This fall my goddaughter stayed at the Recital Hotel for a week. The hotel staff arranged for us to be picked up at the airport. The driver was timely and ably maneuvered through some horrific traffic. The manager, Seyfettin Cetincakmak, was quite efficient and helpful. He recommended a restaurant for dinner and was helpful with transportation around the city. All... More

It is a small friendly hotel. The buffet breakfast had a good variety of food. The best thing about the hotel is it's location. The tram stop is just a few minutes walk. Also, the main tourist attractions like the Blue Mosque, Sophia Hagia and the Topkapi Museum and the Grand Bazzar, are a short walking distance from the hotel.... More

While many hotels label themselves as boutique hotels, this one truly lived up to its name. Very nicely furnished rooms with good amenities, free bottled water and excellent wifi. The hotel itself felt like an upscale apartment building. Our room was a suite, spacious and well furnished, which was adequate for four. Even the pullout sofabed was very comfortable. The... More

A very comfy room and the service of the staff is very good. The wi-fi internet is great also. It's almost in the middle of some of the great tourist spots in istanbul. The Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia is very near to the hotel. Even the train terminal is near to the hotel.

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.
