Stayed for 5 nights at this hotel. Loved it, it's located right where you want to be. Close to most of the historical and interesting sites of Istanbul. Nice restaurants and cool bars all at hand. Best of all the staff could not do enough to help us out in anyway. Would definitely recommend staying here.

This is a very nice hotel located in an old part of Istanbul near many of the main tourist attractions. The area reminds me in many ways of revitalized urban areas in the United States with narrow streets and older building facades, while inside many of the buildings were remodeled to be new and modern. Staff at the front desk... More

We had a four days visit in Recital Hotel and enjoyed very much. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They were very professional and gave a feeling that customer is important to them. The staff was definitely the best part of all. The hotel location is excellent, only about a kilometer from all important places and from the... More

Average hotel. Abandoned buildings around the property. Breakfast repetitive with mediocre selection. Front desk staff not very helpful. Airport transfer service was good. Close to all the tourist attractions but location is questionable

Having travelled to Istanbul many times for business/sport, this was the first time in a long time I was there to take in the city sights. Recital's location in Sultanahmet makes it perfect for getting access to all the main sights, in the heart of Istanbul, and the friendly staff with excellent English were always more than helpful with tips...

Recital Hotel is a fairly new, attractive hotel close to all the attractions of Sultanahmet, in a fairly quiet street (when the muezzin is off duty). The superior sea view room we had came with a pleasant terrace with a fabulous view of the Bosphorus. The staff are friendly and helpful. I travel a lot and would readily recommend this... More

We stayed for 4 nights and found the hotel very good. They arranged airport transfers and threw in a free half day tour. Our room was comfortable and breakfast was fine but nothing special. The best thing though is that you can walk to so many places but you also have a tram stop a few minutes away. We would... More

Good quality hotel in the Sultanahmet district in Istanbul. Hotel approx.. 2 minutes walk from the main thoroughfare and approx. 10 minutes walk to main tourist sites of Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar etc. Rooms large and clean with daily cleaning if required. Breakfast was good with a large selection to choose from. Staff always polite and... More
