The hotel close to Taksim square, near to Istiklal street. It is renovated and clean. The rooms are small but ok. Breakfast at the last floor with a great view. The only problem is with the noise. Is better to have a higher floor room, because there is a lot of noise in the night outside. The metro and furniculare... More

Right after arrival I told then that the room was too small and they needed to change it for us(not enough room to open our bags!) they kept ignoring it. Construction in the hotel was too loud during the day and for me with jet lag was difficult to sleep! Perfect location. Leakage in the washroom was an ongoing problem.... More

The hotel does not look like a four star hotel. It is true that is really close to Taksim, the rooms are clean, the bathroom the same, and are fairly new. The staff is not the most pleasant in the world, and a little carefree. As personal experience I would like to comment that: they didn't wake me up at... More

I went to this hotel as my father and mother had been there previusly with a satisfactory experience, and the prices was good. First I must say this is NOT a four star hotel, it is 3, at best. My review will explain why. First, the pictures provided by them of the hotel, not true at all. They are in... More

I have never wrote on this site, but now I must in order to protect travelers. The hotel City Center Taksim is not as is shown on the pictures of the official site. The rooms are small, full of dust and dull. The toilette is also very, very small you can barely take a shower....and everything in the toilette was... More

I went last year with my college and stayed here. Yeah, the rooms are tiny, but that's pretty much every urban hotel in Europe. If you want a larger room, it's gonna be really expensive. You cannot beat the location, the breakfast room has a breathtaking view, and the breakfast buffet is fantastic. My only complaint is the NOISE. That... More

I recently visited Istanbul where I found it hard to find anything reasonable and central in the New City, I did come across City Center which was the cheapest given that it was Easter. My room was supposed to be a deluxe double room, it was sadly not much bigger than many single hotel rooms i've stayed in and with... More

I stayed at the City Center Hotel for 5 nights in Oct. 2012 with a friend for a vacation. Our room was very good... The interior is nice and it was clean.. not much of a space but it's just right. The service wasn't the best but it was fair. Considering its great location just off Taksim Square it was... More
