“Feels like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

I visited Istanbul with my 6 yrs old daughter. We spent 4 nights in the Hotel. She said she would have stayed there forever...

Room was large, clean, light, quite and well-decorated. Bed is awsome! Staff is really nice, friendly and helpful. Breakfast is fine, next time we may try some meals, as well.

The Hotel has a great location, it is close to most of the historical sites and tram station is in 3 min walk if one would like to see more of the city.

Thanks Recital for making our trip comfortable! :)

I stayed there with a girlfriend for four nights. It was really a very pleasant stay. The staff was really friendly and helpful, the room was very nice, big and really clean. Breakfast was very good and you found everything you wanted at the buffet. Also the location of the hotel is amazing. Not event ten minutes to the blue mosque and the Hagia Sophia. All in all I can really recommend the hotel to everyone!

I highly recommend this Hotel. Close to all the sites, very good breakfast, clean rooms, and helpful staff. I was very impressed with the comfort of the bed and pillows. I slept very well. The bath room was immaculate. The roof top terrace is very nice, we did not spend much time there because we were so busy doing other things. If I had to do it over we would have spent a few nights up there just relaxing. Oh well. It was just what we wanted when visiting Istanbul for the first time.

We stayed for a week in a ocean view room with a terrace overlooking the Marmara Sea. Great location near big sites in Sultanhamet and the public tram system to get everywhere in Istanbul. Staff is very helpful. Room was clean and basic but with great view and light. Roof terrace was perfect though a bit chilly at the end of October. Good mattress and pillows.

The Recital Hotel in Istanbul is great. The staff were really helpful, the view from the roof is fabulous and it is so close to all the sights in old Istanbul.
The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and room were very clean. It was quiet at night.

Room Tip: Ask to see a variety of rooms. They do vary in size.

I stayed at the recital hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is in a very good condition, everything seemed fine. The rooms are in great condition and very clean with all your necessities. The location of the hotel is superb in walking distance to the Hagia sophia, Blue Mosque, TopKapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. The price is the least amongst other hotels which are also in walking distance to the places mentioned above. The breakfast buffet had a great variety of food which were fresh. I really recommend this hotel as it had exquisite service and a very helping staff. I hope to come back to the recital hotel whenever I visit Istanbul again.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are large and sunny.
