Really nice, small and reasonably priced hotel centrally located close to all the sights of Sultanahment: Topkapi palace, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are all within ten minutes' walk. Room was clean, comfortable and stylishly furnished, and there was a cute terrace on the roof. Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Recital Hotel is in a fab location central to the Blue Mosque, Bazaars, and eateries. We found the staff very friendly,obliging & knowledgable. The rooms were very clean tidy & most comfortable? The only complaint was that the hot Buffet breakfast was usually cold. Overall an 8/10 and would book again when travelling to Istanbul. Cheers

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood 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.
