The hotel is in a wonderful location walking distance to the major sites. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful and seemed to want to extend a hand whenever possible. Would highly recommend the hotel!

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.

This was my fifth trip to Istanbul, choose this hotel as it had a/c and during the summer months a little aircon is most welcomed. Hotel is well situated close to the major attractions and a short walk to the tram which is the way to get around, this sometimes traffic clogged city. We went for the a/port pick up,... More

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. We had an excellent tour with our guide. We also thought that... More

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 Hotel has a very convenient location about halfway between the Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar so you can easily walk everywhere. In just 5 minutes is a... More
