My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. This place is gorgeous, in a great part of town, within walking distance of many of the sights. It was clean and friendly; I was very impressed with the staff. Breakfast was wonderful and the VIEW was out of this world. My husband and I agree that this was one of... More

This hotel was a excellent base for our Turkey vacation. Its near the train stop and in the middle of all the area sites. They offer a good morning breakfast selection which was complimentary. The staff and owners all were very welcoming.

Short two day city break in Istanbul. Spent the extra money for the room with a balcony overlooking the Bosphorus. Room was lovely but adjacent buildings made the view not so great, to be honest we spent so little time in the room didn't really need the balcony. Hotel was excellent, I pre-booked a taxi via e-mail with hotel and... More

Small botique hotel in the Old City. Halfway between Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar, so a good location . Has a roof terrace, but, no alcohol served . Rooms small , but, consistent with European hotels. Has a restaurant but only breakfast served. Very pleasant and helpful staff.

It is a small hotel located in the heart of SultanAhmet area just close to the Marmara Sea. All the main attractions are stone's throw away. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia , TopKapi Palace, Sulemaniya Mosque , Grand Bazar , Spice bazar and Istanbul University are in the vicinity of 15-20 minutes walk. Hotel staff is friendly. Breakfast is very nice... More

I would give the hotel 5 stars but the first room we got smelled like smoke. Fortunately, they had another room available that they could give us but I would be very unsatisfied if we ended up with that room. WiFi in the hotel is good, there is a computer and printer in the lobby, breakfast is good for the... More

My husband and I stayed three nights at The Recital. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was very good. The major sights were all within walking distance to the hotel. We had a terrace room which was perfect for enjoying a view of the Bosphorus Strait. My only complaint is that the bathtub/shower was very high and it... More

The Recital wasn't cheap, but we felt like we got good value for money. It's close to the major tourist attractions. It has clean comfortable rooms. The staff went out of their way to help - including loaning us an Istanbulkart for the duration of the stay and keeping breakfast open a few minutes later than they should have one... More

This is a lovely hotel. Located in the heart of the old city, easy walking and close to tram stops. Very charming with excellent staff. Rooms are small but well appointed and the rain shower is grand after a day of sight seeing.
