“Good place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Spent three nights here courtesy of BA air miles - great location, quiet and sufficiently central, but not right in the hubbub of the tourist area. Good breakfast, nice rooms, helpful and pleasant staff.

We stayed in the Hotel for 3 days. Hotel located in a quite location and so close to main tourist attractions and restaurants. You only need to use public transport if you wish to go to places outside of old city. (Tram is located about 5 min walk from the hotel)
Staffs are friendly & happy to help. Next time will book same hotel again. My 12 years old daughter was so happy to stay in the hotel; she even written Thank you letter to Management and Staff.

Best hotel ever,very clean and neat. The front desk, the kitchen staff, the cleaning staff was very, very courteous, friendly, and efficient. The location of the hotel is just perfect, very close to the main attractions of this wonderful city. If you want to have a perfect vacation just stay at Recital; they made our stay delightful and smooth. What a beautiful city, what an amazing hotel, and how friendly and pleasant Turkish people are. I would love to visit Istanbul again and of course I would stay at Recital.

First I would like to say that my stay in Turkey was very nice and my stay in Recital hotel was more than perfect. The hotel is very clean and neat and the staff is very nice and friendly. Our room size was very good and clean all the time and if it happened that we ask for anything from the front desk this will be done in a second. I really want to express my deep appreciation to Mr. Murad and the whole staff in the kitchen they were more than nice. I would definitely will stay in the same hotel again which I am planning soon. The location of the hotel was very convinion to the metro tho the attraction area, like the blue mosque, Aya Sofia, Top Kapi, Grand Bazar. I did recommend the hotel to all my friends her in the US and hopefully we are all planning to arrange a trip in the near future.

I stayed here with my mother and sister for one week and the location was perfect for site-seeing in the city! The hotel staff was extremely helpful and very friendly, the amenities were amazing from the gym to the views on the roof. Also enjoyed the breakfast each day! Would definitely recommend and would stay there again.

This hotel is very clean, in a good location, and has very friendly staff.
It lends itself to the independent traveller though.
The beds are very firm, I do like that.
And there is noise from the streets if you are on a lower floor, but being from NYC, I didn't have a problem.
If you are sensitive to noise, I would think again, if not, it is very hard to do better.
