“Wow, what a place!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Recital Hotel, is the absolute place to be if you are visiting and staying in Istanbul, Turkey. All of the staff workers are friendly (from the manager to the chefs, to the room service workers).

It felt like I was at home and everytime I left my room everyone was waiving and saying hello. I really can't sit here and list every good thing about this hotel. It would take forever. Below is a few things though.

- The staff are so friendly and they understand English very well.

- The hotel is in a wonderful location (by Shopping stores, restaurants, airports, & is also very safe)

- The rooms are very clean and comfortable, with a gorgeous bathroom.

- The rooftop is open to all visitors. It has a wonderful view of Istanbul.

- The staff cater to you. They want to make sure you are having a good time and you feel safe.

-They handled my Airport Check in when I was about to leave to return to the USA.

It's so much more. Just make sure you transfer your money to Turkish Lira. They do take American dollars as well but just to be safe, take Lira with you.

Thank you recital hotel for a wonderful experience. You have changed my view of Turkey. I can not wait to return.

Recital Hotel is the best place to start your trip around Sultanahmet. The hotel is very new and clean; rooms are tastefully decorated in the local style. Staff is really hospitable and professional. Some small room facilities such as spippers or loofah were a pleasant surprise, as well as complimentary Turkish sweets (taking into account that the room price is more than reasonable). I highly recommend this hotel for independent travellers.

I stayed in Recital Hotel, Istanbul from 29-3-13 to 2-4-13. The rooms were modern, clean and very comfortable. All the staff including front desk were friendly and helpful. The location is perfect to explore all the wonderful attractions in Istanbul which was walking distance from the hotel. It is very near to cemberlitas tram stop if you are travelling from Ataturk airport. The breakfast in the morning was very good and made a good start to the day. Lots of restaurants and stores nearby. I would be happy to stay here again..

Located close to all the sight seeing in a safe and friendly neighborhood. Two grocery stores located near by as well as plenty of restaurants. Very child friendly - they ooh and aah over the little ones and make you feel right at home. Served us the best turkish coffee as we waited for our taxi back to the airport. Had a wonderful time chit-chatting with all the staff. They made Istanbul feel like our second home. Highly recommend this hotel - you will not be dissappointed.

Room Tip: We had the corner suite - it was bigger and fit our family of 4 (children aged 5 and 3) very comfort...
