Very pleasant hotel in old city

The hotel's situated in the old city, near to the Blue Mosque. Staff are very friendly, access to the tram is easy and although slightly hidden away, it is convenient. Breakfast is good, rooms are spacious and the overall atmosphere is great. Beware sharks outside as you walk in the streets foisting expensive rugs, cheap umbrellas, and touting for trade at restaurants. I did indeed come home with a rug and a cheap umbrella. C'est la vie!

Fantastic hotel. Wonderful city.

The Recital is ideal for exploring historic Istanbul being so close to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sofia and many other sites. It's is clean, friendly and relaxed. The staff there are helpful and welcoming. I enjoyed the Turkish breakfast which was tasty, varied and filling. I hope to return to Istanbul in September and will have no hesitation in returning to the Recital.

Average

just stayed at this hotel for a night. it is very hard to find this hotel and it is on an uphill.. no clear instructions to find this hotel. you get dropped off at the bottom and then onwards struggle to find it. although it is 10mins walk to blue mosque and hagia sofia museum.

Great hotel and staff

We stayed at recital hotel for 8 nights and the overall experience was great. The staff were really friendly and polite (a special thanks to Murat, Ehmur and Ilyas for their great hispitality) and the location of the hotel was very convenient. The tram line and restaurants are all a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel and many of the famous attractions are also closeby. If we were to visit the hotel again, we would definitely be staying at this hotel.

Great weekend break

This hotel is in a fantastic location to see all the old city by foot & further afield, with a tram stop just up the road (less than a 5min walk). There are also plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby. I had read a few reviews that said Sultanahmet shut down at night but I certainly did not find this to be true. We had a few problems with the air con at night, which caused us to wake up due to the heat (there seemed to be mini power cuts throughout the night which interrupted the settings). Reception did apologise one morning, when the power was off longer than normal. Other than that the room was very comfortable. We loved the extra large shower head. The wifi was also very reliable, quick & worked throughout the hotel. There was a very good choice for breakfast & all staff were very friendly, particularly Kenan who took very good care of us from the moment we arrived. The free coffee throughout the day is another bonus. We had a very enjoyable stay & I would recommend this hotel for comfort, location & friendliness.
