Recital Hotel is located near many of the highlights of any Istanbul tour. Squeezed into a half residential-half commercial block (on a twisty side street as are found all over the older part of Istanbul), it is surprisingly modern and fresh. Rooms are spacious, well appointed, and there is a beautiful water view from the fun roof bar. When we... More

We love walking. This hotel is five minutes from the main street, ten minutes from the major attractions by foot. The staffs are friendly. For sure we would stay in the same hotel or the same area the next time we revisit Istanbul. If you need your cloths clean, do not use the barber shop behind the hotel. He has... More

This hotel is situated close to all the major attractions and tram way. You can easily walk to them. Lots of great food options like the old ottoman and Antakya close by. We stayed in the corner suite, this was a big room for all four of us. The bathrooms are clean and efficient. Breakfast was provided everyday, nothing fancy.... More

We have just returned from a great trip to Istanbul. And what helped to make it special was this hotel. The room was well decorated, spotlessly clean, very quiet, extremely comfortable bed (best hotel bed we have had for a long time) and a fantastic shower. What more could you want! The staff were all so helpful and gave some... More

We stayed here two different times, and both rooms were gorgeous, with amazing views of the water. The location is great, two blocks from the main street, but still far enough away that it was quiet at night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was great. We highly recommend this 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.
