The hotel room was clean, nicely decorated and spacious. The room had a kettle with a complimentary large bottle of water, coffee, tea and... More

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.

To be honest I wasn't sure whether to rate this 4 or 5 star and in the end, I decided that the staff had been so helpful, that anything less would have been insulting. 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

Our overnight flight arrived very early but the arranged pick up was waiting and we had access to our room and offered breakfast. Very warm and comfortable hotel during a very cold weather snap. Helpful and informative staff. Breakfast spread excellent .
