We had a great stay at the Recital Hotel back in June 2013. This is a modern hotel located in the heart of the old city near the Bazaars and the museums. The staff were courteous and very helpful, particularly with finding us a guided tour of the Black Sea. The room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was clean... More

The location is absolutely great, next to lots of shops in main streets, transportation stations and the blue mosque, the area is overall rich, the rooms are so clean and cosy, staff were friendly and helpful.. the hotel has a special spirit though it is a small one but it is one of my favorite in Istanbul

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.
