By chance we booked Recital for our 6-days trip in Istanbul and LOVED it. We also got lucky and had a few promotions with Recital, where they offered round-trip transportation from-and-to the airport with a half-day tour in the Old City. Our rides were great and on time.

This was our 3rd trip to Istanbul, and while we had "done" the most famous attractions before, we still chose to be in the old touristy part of the city.

The Recital is perfectly situated for the major sites, and is a 10 minute walk from the Blue Mosque. I really recommend the superior seaview room with its view of the sea - sitting out on its balcony at night hearing the 11 o'clock call to prayer was magical. The staff were lovely especially Seyfettin. Two tips - the more... More

It is near tram station & Sutanahmet is reachable walking. Very... More
