Stayed here for 5 nights and found the hotel to be first class. When booking direct with the hotel, the deal,at the time, included free transfers to and from the airport.
The staff were all very friendly, and couldn't be more helpful.
We were given a free upgrade bedroom, which was very comfortable, and spacious.
The location was within a few minutes walk from the tram line, off the main street, and quiet at night.
Would certainly recommend it to any visitors.

We loved our ten day stay here. Great family atmosphere and such a personalized approach by all the front desk staff, Murat and all the others. Never too busy to give tips or directions to tourist attractions. Wonderful cleaning crew as well; breakfast staff could have been a bit more helpful and know some English.

Otherwise great breakfast buffet; fresh fruits including melons; fresh figs, grapes and the varied morning juices. Local fare like the walnut jam and olives much appreciated; wish there were more Turkish dishes there since the local cuisine is delicious! We still dream of the freshly squeezed pomegranate juice from street vendors.

The room was comfortable, (the bed a bit hard) and it was a bit noisy from the street below sometimes. But the size was generous, the rain shower lovely and all toiletries provided made this hotel incredible value.

The hotel location is one street away from the main drag, just walk up Pyor Lotti street and you will be in the heart of Sultanahmet.

Hotel staff incredibly generous; didn't look to squeeze every last lira from you; definitely would stay there again but for a longer time.

Finally must mention the resident cat and kittens whose antics outside the breakfast room kept my daughter fully fascinated every morning!

Excellent service and location!

We stayed here for 6 nights recently. We asked for a sea-view room with a big balcony and that is precisely what we got. The room was excellent, a/c worked well and a good bathroom. The bed was reasonably hard but good. Location - a 5 minute walk from the main tourist area and the tram line, excellent! The staff were good, especially Murat who was very helpful at all times, even dealing with our noisy neighbours one night. The breakfasts were ok, hot food offerings were minimal and curious scrambled eggs :-), fresh fruit was patchy in quality and the room itself got crowded to overflowing at around 9am, so get there early! It was interesting to see tourists trying to get the toast out with metal forks while the toaster itself was "live". Also, the breakfast room staff had minimal English and were not bothered to clean tables in a hurry. Our friends from Oz joined us here for 2 nights, had the same room type booked but the room balcony was standing room only. All in all a very nice stay!

Room Tip: We had room 406. Balcony view and area was great for an evening drink! Had noisy neighbours one night so indicates the sound-proofing is inadequate and you can hear the plumbing being used through the walls.

We had the most wonderful time on our honeymoon at the Recital Hotel. When we got there and they realized that it was our honeymoon, the gentlemen at the front desk automatically upgraded our room. Unfortunately they didn't have a upgrade room available, so we stayed at the sister hotel

The room that we got for our honeymoon was excellent, extremely clean, nice big space, with an Asian flare to it all. We were given a bottle of wine on ice upon arrival to our room, a dinner for two and a leaving gift. The service at the hotel was excellent the entire time we'd highly recommend the hotel. The location is perfect, within walking distance to the old town, great wifi services, with the best breakfast we'd had in a while!

We'll definitely be back!

Great location...everything is nearby...just take couple minutes to walk down to the Blue Mosquee or to AyiaSophia...the room we were updated in was just awesome (especially the italian shower)...The staff are very helpful (from the place to visit to the airport transfert)
However the breakfast could be better...But it is THE place to stay if you need to visit Istanbul (even for 3-4 days)...we hope to be back soon...
