Reviewed yesterday NEW

the workers are helpful and nice the hotel room was good and everything inside of the hotel was alright but outside it might be noisy late in the night but since we spend the whole day out we came so tired to the room and just fell asleep without caring much about the noise :D

I had an excellent experiance while stayed in Recital Hotel. Everybody were giving me personal attention and help. I specialy thanks Riza Chiker for his personal service and advise. Recital is just walking distance from all major attractions. If Recital improve their gym, then it can compete with 5 star hotels.

The hotel is nicely equipped, comfy bed, nice bathroom. Hotel staff are very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast buffet was wonderful as well. It is a good mix of Turkish and Western foods, everything from olives and cheeses to eggs and sausage.

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.
