Nice hotel close to all sites

Posted Oct 14, 2017
So hotel location is perfect I mean you can have mosque tour and grand bazar and spice bazar at the same day just wake up early in the morning . however, bathroom shower was not so pleasing water won't drain it was so annoying. Yes they kept the bedroom clean everytime we came in and staff was wonderful they would help you if you any. Also they have breakfast from 7-10 so take advantage of that . In breakfast they usually have boil eggs, different type of cheese, olives, fruits, Turkish tea, Turkish coffee, stale bread, home fries,slice turkey, pastrami ,sausage, salads etc. But yea I would recommend this hotel to a friend because it was in perfect location and the price was good. If you type of person who came there to explore and not to stay in the hotel then please don't hesitate and book it . But if you going to stay in the room and spend your time there please book Hilton or something .

Perfect hotel near all Attractions

Posted Oct 13, 2017
Me and my sister stayed at the Recital and we could not be any happier with the experience here. Our room was a perfect double size which was cleaned everyday for us. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly especially Emrah, Riza, Unil and Murat. The manager Masud was sooo nice as when we missed our breakfast he got the staff to make us some. We definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting Istanbul as it is walking distance to most of the main attractions such as blue mosque, hagia Sofia and top kapi, grand bazaar. We will definitely be back and miss the staff at the recital hotel. Ghazala and mariam

Good for price

Posted Sep 1, 2017
Pros: Good location. Friendly and very helpful staffs.
Cons: Increase the option of breakfast Window curtain.
Location: Walking distance from all the tourist attractions.
Quite old hotel. Good location. Very friendly and helpful staffs. Windows have blind only and no curtain therefor early morning light can be disturbing for sleep. Good breakfast but limited options. Overall value for money.

Great location

Posted May 25, 2017
I love the location of this hotel. The staff was really nice and helpful. Lots of restaurants around the corner. Public transportation with in 5 minutes walk. The wifi is not great. I stay there for about 9 nights and the floor in my room was never clean except for the one of the washroom. They don't have extra bedding in case you feel cold. Overall it was okay.
