I have stayed in many hotels in different countries, but Recital Boutique Hotel was my favorite and special! I felt myself at home in that hotel, personnel were very kind, their advices about trips, their help in all cases was like family care, not only their job. Emrah and others did their best for our well-being in Istanbul. I felt... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in July. The hotel staffs were very friendly - Emrah had a lot of useful tips for us, while Umut kept offering Turkish tea at the lobby. Kenan was very friendly and courteous during breakfast. The hotel is within walking distances to the Grand Bazaar, Istanbul Univ, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the tomb of... More

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

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.
