- very loud rooms: paper walls between rooms, you can hear the speaking of neightbours, noisy traffic - poor breakfast.
Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent breakfasts
The cold wet weather!
-staff is nice and will wait on you hand and foot -location is great - very close to all tourist attractions and also quiet at night -very clean and updated rooms -breakfast is great - a good variety within a traditional turkish breakfast
-prices have gone up a bit in the last two years - I stayed there 2 years ago (funnily enough, in the exact same room) and the room was $30 more a night this go around - so price increased a little fast for me
Prior to arrival the hotel arranged for our collection from the airport. When we got to the hotel we were warmly greeted, offered refreshment & the receptionist took a lot of time to tell us where the main sites are in relation to the hotel & offered to make any arrangements we required. We did book the boat trip up the Bosphorous which was a good recommendation.
We had an amazing experience staying at Recital hotel they made our stay in Istanbul something to always remember
1) The staff is amazing & Riza at the reception was very helpful. 2) Very easy check-in & out. 3) The room & bathroom are very large & clean. 4) You can start loving Istanbul from an unforgettable view from the terrace of floor 5.
1) The breakfast could have been a bit better. I didn't like the omlett & there wasn't a large variety of food " no fruit salad for example"
The location was close to main attractions. Rooms were clean and we had a great view.
The hotel messed up my reservation. I had booked a triple room with an extra bed. I ended up getting a king bed and a twin bed. The hotel is close to a Mosque so you get woken up early in the morning with prayer music. Very small lobby area. The roof top bar, was not a bar (no alcohol) and it was not clean. Didn't look like it got used much, even though website shows plenty of pictures.
breakfast and big room
staff were little bit cold
Excellent position, cleanliness and service. Little expensive but worth extra. We would go back on next visit
Well positioned for access to older part of Istanbul and tourist attractions. Easy access to trams and Grand Bazaar.
Hotel very pleasant but simple. Roof terrace accessible but couldn't find anywhere to buy a drink etc to sit and view.
breakfast, location, rooftop patio, cleanliness,
one of the desk clerks was not very customer friendly but two others were very nice
Excellent location set in the heart of Sultanahmet. Staff we're very friendly and full of energy.Rooms were very modern and well equiped. Internet wifi worked well and views from terrace outstanding.
I guess all was great but if I had to place a negative comment it would only be if you arrived to breakfast after 9am you may be missing out on some things I.e sausages simmit etc tip is to get in breakfast early.
Very good breakfast. The position is perfect, very close to the center. Staff very helpful and a very nice room with terrace and table.
Shuttle service for the airport seems too expansive. The taxi costs 45 TL more or less, while the shuttle service costs 30€
Can say only good things. Classical nice hotel. You can find the room like that in any city in the world, so it has no specific oriental style. Just good quality and nice location.
Location is good, BUT finding the hotel is NOT easy))) Ask local people and don't trust the map too much. Usually maps show this hotel not exactly in the right place =) But it's really close to the DivanYolu and Sultanahmet square.
near cemberlitas tram station. The room is spacious, clean & fully quipped. good air conditioning & comfortable beds.There was a coffee maker at the room. Staff were nice, helpful & speak English very well. The view from terrace was amazing.
The terrace is a roof with tables & chairs with no service & you can only get there for limited hours. You have to climb stairs to get to the street of the tram station. There was noise from cars outside.
The Recital is a charming small hotel - we had a superior seaview room with a balcony overlooking the Marmaris Sea. Every night, the muezzin would sing their musical call to prayer and sitting there with their beautiful voices reverberating around the city was magical. The Recital is perfectly placed for easy access to the Blue Mosque and the main sights of the old city, and the staff are just great. I didn't want to leave.
Great location in Sultanahmet, walkable to main sites, restaurants and transportation. Very clean and pleasant astmosphere.
We booked a suite for 4 persons -- be advised this is not actually a suite with 2 beds. It is an L-shaped room with one bed, a pull out couch and a cot. I found this to be somewhat deceptive given the description. Noise from the street can be an issue. Breakfast is so-so and not very variable.
Very close to the tourist areas. The room was very clean.
There was no bar. The bed was VERY hard and there were no top sheets and only one blanket.
* the reception speaks good english * the room was clean and A/C is great * the reception is helpful with attractions locations and costs. * the environment is calm
* the Room price. * the mini bar was not working and they cant fix only in the day time . * the room sevice resturant closes early .
Friendly staff, delicious breakfast buffet, location close to main attractions and couple grocery stores where we could get fresh fruit every day, local laundry services next door very inexpensive, staff knows the area and had good recommendations and detailed directions
Room itself is well equiped and clean. Location of the hotel is good, along the tram line.
Room with back lane view only.
We have three rooms in this hotel. Location is great and cleanness of rooms. Staff are really friendly. breakfast is nice. They upgraded us to a corner suite with out extra charge. Everything was great. I have suggested this hotel to friends and will definitely stay there again.
As a Muslim traveller, I suggest putting one Quran in all rooms and a sign that shows Qibla direction.
Walking distance to major tourist attractions
Stuff very friendly and supportive. Located near to all highlights of sightseeing. Good breakfast. wonderful terrace.
The hotel is off the busy main street, but still in the center, just 7 minutes from the Blue Mosque. Staff is kind, room very clean and comfy. We had a great sea view room with balcony, but the terrace on top is very nice and has same view.Definitely recommended.
