As other reviews have said we would not have any trouble recommending this place to others. The room we stayed in was clean, modern and quiet. The rest of the hotel was a similar good standard and the hotel staff were friendly when approached although the front desk staff not as cheery as may expect when entering. We would say... More

The front desk staff were very helpful indeed and always willing to help you- great customer service. The room was clean and though we had a superior room it was small but i guess in major cities that is what we have come to expect. We found the breakfast buffet to offer good choices and staff there were helpful. Hotel... More

Excellent location with only a 5 minute walk to the blue mosque. Rooms are good size with free wifi and lift to all floors. The Hotel has rooftop access with nice views over the bay. Staff were very polite and the breakfasts good. If I was to give one criticism it would be that after the first day an envelope... More

We stayed here in August 14 and couldn't ask for a more pleasant and accommodating staff. Booked tours, baths, arranged cabs, accepted deliveries, offered choices for enjoying the old city and Grand Bazaar. Rooms for 3 nights comes with perks such as breakfast, tours by their parent company Neon and airport transfers. These are excellent value and you miss the... More

I stayed there alone in Spring. The hotel is very clean, very good breakfast, lovely titbits to eat on the reception counter and very central in an interesting part of town. Remember to explore the Armenian area nearby. Exotic female visitors from Saudi provided interesting conversation over breakfast.

We stayed at the Recital for six days before continuing our travels. We liked the place so much that we chose the same hotel again for the return trip. From the moment you enter the cool lobby of Recital, you can see that staff and management really care about ensuring quality experience for their guests. Service was professional, friendly, and...

We stayed at the top floor (5th), a room with a sea view. It was excellent! In addition, the view from the terrace was superb. The room size was ok, everything is nearby, staff were very helpful. Breakfast room was a bit cold.
