    Newly renovated modern hotel style. Very comfortable with full breakfast. Easy to get to the metro, shopping, restaurants, grand bazaar, big bus hop on hop off start and a whole lot more. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Rooms have extra amenities like shaving kit and tooth brushes should you forget yours. Everything your looking for in a hotel in Istanbul.

    The Recital Hotel was in a convenient location for touring the old city. The service at the hotel was exceptional - the folks at the front desk helped us with all of our dinner and tour arrangements. The room was OK - not the best -not the worst. Breakfast could be improved.

The hotel is located centrally and close to the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and various other traditional treasures. Reception staff were always friendly and the room... More
